One of the things I love in the fall is getting to go back to cranking up my beauty routine a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I love the minimal approach to summer makeup but there’s something fun about being intentional with the perfect statement lip or a new eyeliner shade, and my favorite of them all: full coverage foundation. The best part is that makeup is a great way to bring in some fall vibes regardless of the weather. A trend I’m excited to rock this fall is metallic lips. Brands like Smashbox have been coming out with new metals in all kinds of shades, and I tried a few on here. What do you think? I’m partial to this first one – the lightest rose gold shade called Petal Metal because it’s the most wearable yet the metallic sheen lights up your face. But it’s kind of fun to do in bright red as well – definitely one I’ll wear around the holidays!
