While the arrival of autumn brings a flurry of fall fashion trends to perk up your transitioning wardrobe, it’s also the perfect time to refresh your makeup and try the latest beauty trends for fall. Read on for tips on how to work 3 of the most on-trend looks in fall makeup, from a bold orange lip to stunning metallic eyes.
1. Monochromatic Rose Makeup
Wearing warm, rosy tones on eyes, cheeks and lips is a fresh, youthful look that will complement your toasty autumn sweaters and knits. Begin with a versatile product such as Osmosis Colour Blush in Poppy, which multitasks as an eye color and blush and has a flawless matte finish. For lips, apply The Balm Girls Lipstick in Ima Goodkisser, a creamy pink with just the right amount of shine. All of theBalm’s lip colors feature nourishing Vitamin E and jojoba seed oil, plus heavenly vanilla-mint scent.
2. Bold Metallic Eyes
This fall’s trendy metallic eye goes way beyond basic silver and gold. Get started with the Matte 'N Metal Eye Shadow Palette by stila, which features six matte tones along with six high-impact metallics such as pewter, rose gold, gunmetal and cool bronze. All 12 shadows are super-blendable so you can fine-tune just the right look for you. For the finishing touch, line your upper and lower lash lines with GloSkin Beauty Liquid Ink. This smooth liquid liner with a deep black pigment features a handy felt tip applicator that’s just right for creating a winged cateye.
3. Pop of Orange Lipstick
Rocking a trendy orange lip may sound daunting, but stay with us here: If you keep the rest of your makeup subtle and natural, you can confidently rock a statement lip color without looking over-the-top. Since all eyes will be on your lips, start with LipFusion XXL Advanced Contouring Priming Plumping Pencil. Hyaluronic acid and marine collagen filling spheres help minimize lines and plump up your lips to prep them for a bold color. Now you’re ready to take the plunge with Gorgeous Cosmetics Lipstick in Quinn, a no-holds-barred shade of juicy, electric orange with a long-lasting formula to boot.
