The Top Makeup Trends for Fall

by Kayla Reusche on September 26, 2019

As soon as the first signs of fall show, I’m all in. (Hello sweater weather!) Fall is such a fun season to experiment with makeup & new shades. I don’t think there’s ever been a time where a bold smokey eye & burgundy lip WEREN’T in style for fall.

To help you get in the mood, we rounded up the fall makeup trends we’ll be wearing all season long.

Smokey Eye

The smokey eye is such an iconic & classic look, but there’s no better time to rock it than the fall. This dramatic look is so versatile it can be done with just about any color combination. Of course we love a good black smokey eye, but incorporating the colors of fall like reds, browns & oranges takes it to another level. Need help creating the PERFECT smokey eye? Check out this tutorial.

Burgundy Lip

Even if it tried to, a burgundy fall lip could never go out of style. It’s such a versatile shade & can be paired with just about any eye look. Not to be dramatic, but burgundy may just be stealing the show from the classic red lip! There’s just something about a burgundy lip that brings all eyes on you, in a good way. So if you’re looking to make a statement this fall, break out the burgundy lippies.

Lindsey Pretty Gloss

June Pretty Balm

Playful Eyeliner

This popular summer makeup trend is transitioning its way right into fall. Adding a colorful liner to your look is the perfect way to add an edge to your style. Use a dark brown for a smokey liner or spice it up & use a colorful fall shade. Either way, you’ll have everyone wishing their liner game was as good as yours! (Did you know any of our loose pigments can be turned into an eyeliner? Check out this step-by-step guide to see how.)

Mauve Tones

Mauve is the perfect transition from hot summer months to cool autumn days. It keeps the look lighter than most fall trends & still hangs on to a little bit of summer. Mauve tones are flattering on so many skin tones, & that’s why it’s the perfect shade for fall!

Etta Eyeshadow

Vintage Kiss Vegan Shea Butter Lipstick
