Black Cherry

Deep red colors are always my favorite around this time of year.
I love how sexy and chic they look on lips and nails. Commonly blackish red shades can be hard to apply and intimidating to beginners. Don’t be scared of this beautiful shade ladies because I’m here to share with you some of my all time favorites that are super easy to apply.

Essence Blush in Renesmee Red
Have you ever put on a dark red lipstick and thought, “this looks strange?” 9 times out of 10 it’s probably because you weren’t wearing enough blush. Don’t get me wrong you don’t have to pile it on. But applying a tad bit more after you’ve put on your lipstick can really complete your look. Renesmee Red is my favorite blush to wear with dark lips. It’s incredibly bendable, pigmented and doesn’t grab onto the skin weird like other red blushes. Love this product!

Benefit Benetint
This is a love/hate product for me. I love that this is a no fuss product that you can apply this with fingers and this looks great on both the lip and cheeks. However, I hate when I have dry skin and this sets before I can blend it. Right now my skin is a little oilier then normal so I have been wearing this all the time. Nevertheless, as a warning this might not suit you if you have dry skin, so give it a good test before purchasing.

Chanel Glossimer in Crushed Cherry
This product is a beauty. I love that you can apply a little to give you that stained look but also apply more to give you that dark vampy look. This product is great for makeup beginners because you have the option to wear it sheer and still get that black cherry vibe.
Yes this product gives a vibe!

Anna Sui in 461
This is one of those incredibly intimidating lipsticks when you first look at it.
You’ll have to trust me on this one but its way more wearable then it looks. I love the rose scent and adore how moisturizing it is. This is a product I go back to every year and can’t recommend it enough.

Illamasqua Scarab
This is a gorgeous blackish red that I absolutely love in the fall. The wear time is amazing in the polish, not to mention it’s almost opaque in one coat. There’s something about the tone of this polish that looks incredibly sexy on the nails.

I love blackish red’s for this time of the year! Not only are they really flattering but they can be really easy to apply as well. 
I would love to hear what your favorite fall makeup colors are, so feel free to leave a comment.
