I’m in love with all things fall. From fall makeup trends to fall fashion, Thanksgiving, apple cider and everything else quintessentially fall, there’s something about the cozy season that I just can’t get enough of. Fall makeup is especially fascinating to me. I love how the shades get deeper and warmer and that you can coordinate your makeup with your favourite fall outfits. Autumn makeup trends definitely got an upgrade this year! Read on to see our favourites, plus tutorials to show you how to get gorgeous fall makeup looks!
7 Fall Makeup Trends to Try
1. Coloured Eyeliner
No longer do you have to play it safe when it comes to eyeliner. Blacks, browns and taupes can get a little tiresome, so this fall, get playful with coloured liner, on both your bottom and top lid. Go for a neon blue or green, or even purple or orange for an eclectic, gorgeous look.
2. Go Mauve
Mauve is the perfect colour to transition from summer to fall makeup looks. It’s a touch more dramatic than light, summery shades, but isn’t as dramatic as some of the darker fall tones. It looks great on a wide range of skin tones, and you can wear it on your eyes, lips and cheeks all at once without going overboard!
3. Gold & Shimmery
Looking to change things up with your eye makeup look? Sultry, shimmery gold lids will be all the rage this fall. A lighter shade of gold for your base will brighten up your eyes, then layer on a dash of shimmery shadow around the corner to give your look some dimension.
4. Brows Au Naturel
Natural looking brows are in for fall. To get the au naturel look, brush your brows up with a spoolie brush and fill in sparse spots with a brow pencil in small, feathery strokes. This will give the illusion of full, luscious brows.
5. Matte Red Lipstick
A matte red lip is always classy, and this fall it’s definitely back in style. Red lips are bold and dramatic and can take a simple outfit up a notch in a flash! Wear it to elevate jeans and a white tee, or to compliment a gorgeous floral dress for a night out.
6. Winged Eyeshadow
We all know how stunning winged eyeliner can be, but how about trying winged eyeshadow? This dramatic shadow twist will amp up your makeup look, taking you from subtle to sultry. Use tape to get a perfect straight line, just like you would with winged eyeliner.
7. Full Lashes
Great lashes are always in style, but this fall lashes are going to be extra lush. Apply your favourite mascara from the roots of your lashes to the tips, fanning them out toward your temple. Eyelash extensions are no doubt the reason for this voluminous trend, so you can also consider those to enhance the length and volume of your lashes!
