Colder temperatures have us swapping light white wines for rich reds — and our makeup bag is following suit. Berry-colored makeup is equal parts romantic and dramatic, and looks amazing with any wedding gown. The best part? It works on all skin tones. Here, the best berries for fall brides.

1. Essence LongLasting Eye Pencil in Berry Merry
Green-eyed brides, listen up: Purple liner is the easiest way to make your eyes stand out. Line your inner lids, and finish with neutral shadow to really help the purple shine. $2.49; available at Ulta

2. NARS Audacious Lipstick in Liv
The velvety formula looks intimidatingly dark in the tube, but don't worry — it goes on sheer. Dab it on with your finger for a subtle, just-drank-a-glass-of-Bordeaux tint, or layer it on thick straight from the tube for an all-out vampy effect. $32, available at Sephora

3. Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Broadest Berry
This lip crayon is the perfect intro to Cabernet-colored makeup. It swipes on easily—no mirror required—which means less room for mistakes (especially if wedding-day nerves make for shaky hands!). $17, available at Clinique

4. Dior 5 Couleurs Palette in Victoire
A cool twist on the standard smoky eye? Try it in shades of violet. This palette makes it easy. For a soft look, layer the mauve shade with lighter pink and champagne, or get more dramatic with the deeper taupe and plum shades. $60, available at Nordstrom

5. Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette
This clutch-friendly palette is a one-stop shop. The neutral, warm-toned shadows have a hint of glitter, which helps them catch the light in photos. $12, available at Target

6. OPI Nail Lacquer In a Holidaze
This ultra-pretty, deep berry polish is a cool, edgy alternative to classic red. Paint it on the day before your wedding, and get ready to admire your nails wrapped around that vibrant fall bouquet all night long. $9.50; available at Macy's
