In sunny SoCal, the changing of seasons (or lack thereof) doesn’t mean we have to stash our sunglasses. We should, however, think about swapping the ones we’ve been wearing all summer for a pair of shades that are a little more fall wardrobe-friendly.
Same goes for our lipstick shades. It’s time to retire the poppy bright oranges and pinks for the fabulous hues we saw all over the runways — berries, reds, nudes and sepia tones.
Here I’ve paired up the newest sunnies from Warby Parker (what did we do before Warby Parker, BTW?!) with the trendy fall lipsticks that perfectly complement them. Which lipstick/sunglass paring will you choose? My fave is definitely the rose-hued sunglasses paired with sepia-toned lips.

First up: orange(ish) lips. Makeup artist Talia Shobrook created a bold and stunning makeup look for the Athleta show. Continue reading
