Fall is the time of year where you can take fashion back into your own hands. The summer heat can sometimes make it unbearable to try and stay stylish, let alone put any makeup on before you leave the house. Fall gives you the opportunity to experiment with your style once more, switching up your everyday looks for something a little different inspired by the beautiful coloured surroundings. Whether you prefer deep maroon, burnt oranges or casual khaki – here is a guide on how to wear the biggest makeup colours of fall:
Experiment with Lipstick Colours
Everyone knows that the best place to start with adding a pop of colour to your makeup is the lips. If you don’t have time for a full face of glamorous makeup and just want to create a simple daytime look – then you can’t go wrong with a flick of winged eyeliner and a bold lipstick. Orange is a particularly popular colour this season if you’re brave enough, and it looks amazing when teamed with the typical fall colours of your outfit. For those who like to keep it classic, then red or maroon lipstick is a firm favourite while still getting you into the fall spirit.
Add Some Blush
Keep things peachy with some delicate blusher to see in the new season. If you’re wearing a bold eye colour or lipstick, then it’s best to keep the blush light and neutral with pink undertones. For those who are going for a more natural look then add some colour to your cheeks with red blusher or brown bronzer.
Sprinkle Some Glitter
For those days where it’s starting to feel a little dark and dreary as we head into winter, why not brighten up your makeup with some dazzling chunky glitter? Add some glitter makeup on your cheekbones as a highlighter or go a step further and team it with your eyeshadow to create a fun, glowing look – perfect for fall. Keep the glitter colours fall appropriate with golds, reds and blues to make the most of this season.
It’s All About the Eyes
If you’re not one for glitter eyeshadow, then keep it cool with metallic or matt eyeshadow depending on your preference. The best fall YouTube tutorials will guide you on how to cut your crease, wing your eyeliner and sculpt your brows – but the key is to have fun with it. The best part about fall is the incredibly colours, so switch up your usual colour palette for something a little more apt. Mix rich red with moody browns for a daring look that could soon be your everyday daytime makeup.
Which Will You Try?
One thing’s for sure, fall makeup certainly shouldn’t be boring. With inspiration taken from the gorgeous colours around you, there’s the perfect opportunity to play around with your everyday makeup look to create something amazing. Incorporate more fall colours into your style to make the most of this glorious season.
