Thinking of winter weather always conjures up images of wine, berry, and plum lips.  The craving for a deeper pout creeps into my makeup choices early in fall.   But the colors really stand out in winter as a way to bring color back into the cold grey world.

Worn with minimalist makeup or paired with bold eyes, shades like these always make a statement.
