9 Lipsticks That Won't Make You Look Washed Out, Despite Your Fading Tan

This makeup artist secret is a delicious trick for finding the perfect shade of lipstick to keep your glow going in the colder months. 

You know that summer tan of yours? Right now, with every passing day, it’s fading. A sad state of affairs for sure — but you don’t have to sit back and take it. Nor do you need to jet off on a little Mexican mini-break à la the Vanderpump Rules ladies (although a girl can dream!).

Nope, all you need to keep your glow going through fall is to steal a makeup-artist secret and swap your current lip color for one that enhances your complexion’s depth and plays up any trace of a golden glow you’ve still got going.

Finding a bronze-enhancing lip hue is actually really simple. You don’t need to do things like figure out if your skin has warm undertones or cool ones. It also doesn’t matter if your skin tone is dark or light. Here’s the trick: Just choose a hue that resembles a peach, berry, or cherry — in any state of ripeness. That’s it! Promise.

Even easier: Sweep on any of the flattering, fruit-inspired lip colors ahead, guaranteed not to wash you out.
