It’s really all about the lips! These selfie queens and I wore dark colors with minimal accessories to emphasize their luscious red plum-colored lips. To get similar looks, my top 3 matte lipstick recommendations:

  1. D for Danger lipstick by MAC - $17 at MAC Cosmetics
  2. Scarlet Empress by NARS - $27 at Sephora or Ulta Beauty
  3. Perfect Red by NYX – $5.99 at Ulta Beauty or local convenience stores

Important tip: ALWAYS wear lip liner before applying lipstick.

The beginning of autumn has arrived. Tree leaves transform from green to their grand colors of gold and crimson. The temperature drops to an average of 65 degrees with crisp winds. And fashion-lovers, like myself, transition into this earthy season by adding small, but important details to our fall wardrobe.

According to the trending selfies on social media platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, dark, velvet matte lips are noticed in this season’s #selfie. Lip color is usually a minor detail, but when bold and dark, lips do influence an enigmatic fashion statement.

Check out some of Temple University’s students and Philadelphians on how they pulled off this Trending #Selfie (and don’t forget to follow on instagram!):
