Written by Chandni GhoshOct 08, 2018
Summers are for peachy pink lip colours but winters? They’re for the deep, dark and vampy shades. This is the perfect time to keep the paler shades aside and experiment with darker lip colours. Want to know which lipsticks you can add to your vanity kit this season? Here’s a low-down…



If you like the colour mauve from the purple family, know that it’s the perfect time for you to embrace this hue because nothing looks better than a rich purple or mauve in the chilly winters.

If you like berries, in all likelihood, you will love the colour of berries on your lips. Keep the eyeshadow neutral like a taupe or nude so the focus stays on your berry lip colour.

If you’re a fan of burgundy aka marsala, this could actually be the perfect shade of lipstick to wear to a winter wedding or to your own wedding as the bride. Burgundy works across all skin tones and adds that much-needed richness to a winter makeup look.

Deep brown


Think deep reds and burgundys are too mainstream for you? Go for a chocolate coloured or deep brown lip shade that complements fair, wheatish and deep skin tones. An added makeup tip would be to keep the rest of your face bronzed too.

Deep red


The thing about red lipstick is that it works all through the year. We suggest going for a deep red that’s somewhere in between vermilion and marsala. A cat eye and deep red lips—you’re so ready for fall makeup!

Plummy shades are perfect for your winter vanity kit. If you are particularly fond of vampy shades and dare to do a dark lip once in a while, it’s time to try a plum lip shade.

Love pink and purple lipsticks? We’re sure you’d love a magenta lipstick because this is the perfect mix of the two colours. If you’re wheatish or dusky, this lip colour is sure to complement your skin tone.
