One of the most seasonally affected portions of beauty is lip color. Because let’s face it, watermelon pink lips look somewhat odd outside of summer and dark lips look strange outside of the darker months, unless you’re going for a statement trend. With winter upon us, you might be wondering what you can try with your lip colors. Below are some of the top 2016 winter lip color trends.

Bright purple

This is one of those rare colors that works for every season. It’s just a bright, all-purpose color. Though you’ll want to aim for the deeper end of purple, rather than the pastel end, or you’ll end up with a spring look. Try: KA’OIR By Keyshia KAOIR “Racquel” Bright Purple Lipstick

Deep cinnamon

Normally a fall shade, this is one of those colors that you can wear into winter, as well. Its deep color fits the season. Perfect if you have a tube of the stuff to use up from fall. Try: L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipcolour, Cinnamon Toast

Slight nude

A muted pink that verges on nude is all the rage. This shade has the sweet tones of pink, but in a more muted tone range so it’s not too bold for winter. Try: e.l.f. Luscious Liquid Lipstick, Nude Pink
