For fall, it’s all about rich berry and wine shades when it comes to lipstick looks. And getting the best vampy lip for your skintone doesn’t have to be a difficult task — just let your favorite celebrities guide you in the right direction.

With the change of seasons, it’s time to switch out your neon pink and bright coral lipstick shades for something a bit darker. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Rihanna have been embracing the look, and prove that no matter your skintone, there’s a bold berry lip just for you. Check out our favorite color picks for fall as seen on the trendiest celebs.

For pale tones like Cara take your red lipstick a little rustier for the cooler weather with a brick red shade like Butter London Old Blighty Moisture Matte Lipstick. If it’s more of a berry shade you want, make sure it has brighter purple undertones, as darker plum tones can be too harsh against paler skintones and wash you out.

It’s no secret Kylie prefers a more dramatic look, keeping just a hint of burgundy in her otherwise brown lipstick. To copy the look on bronzed skin, try NARS Audacious Lipstick in Deborah. Chrissy’s berry lip had slight purple undertones to it, and was perfect with her olive skin tone. For a similar look, try Lipstick Queen Cupid’s Bow Lip Pencil In Apollo.

There really isn’t a lip color that Rihanna can’t (and won’t) wear. If your skin is deeper, you can easily rock a dark blackberry or rich plum shade like the one Rihanna favors. For the perfect matte shade, Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick in Extrovert is the perfect berry color. If you want to kick up the drama, mix it with Shameless Violet for a more purple toned lip like RiRi’s.

Which wine-stained hue are you looking most forward to trying?
