Lipstick is always on-trend, though the “it” color always varies with the seasonal changes. As the fall finally sashays its way into full view this year, berry lipsticks are beginning to burst forth in a plethora of shades.

Experimenting with new and daring makeup hues can instantly transform you into whomever you want to become in that moment. But finding the perfect one for your skintone is also key to making the look flattering for you.

Smashbox’s Global Pro Lead Artist, Lori Taylor Davis, has some important notes for finding your perfect berry match this season.

“If you have a warmer skintone [meaning, your skin’s got golden hints], choose a berry color with more red hues. This complements your skintone—think more of a black cherry or a pinky red raspberry,” she says. “If you have a cooler skintone [more reddish hues], choose a berry with more blue undertones. You don’t want your skintone and lip color to compete with one another, you want them to complement. Think, black raspberry or a plum shade.”
