Fall is coming up soon, which means that a new makeup look could be the right move for you. You can move into a seasonal fashion choice with a fall palette, and it’s even possible to pair that palette with your clothes to really embody the feeling of “Fall.” There are many ways to create a makeup palette that feels like fall. Use one or multiple of these tips to make the fall palette of your dreams.
1. Stick To Warm Nature-based Colors
One of the easiest ways to create a look that really feels like fall is to stick to natural warm colors. Warm shades of brown, for example, make for an amazing and dynamic eye and lip look. You can also check out all kinds of cozy colors, like deep greens, saturated oranges, and smoldering reds, all of which show up in nature around this time.
2. Use Deep Purples and Reds
Purples and reds often show up during the fall months as the colors of the trees change. Incorporate these colors into your makeup looks for a unique style boost. Try out a deep burgundy lipstick for some sultry energy, and match that eye-catching lipstick to an unassuming outfit to make it pop even more. You can also incorporate deep, dark colors into an eyeshadow look for something that appears smoldering and exciting.
3. Invent Your Own Ombré
One of the most popular trends out there right now is ombré lips. This unique lip look can add depth to something that might otherwise fall a little flat, and it also lends itself well to lots of experimentation. Try out some natural makeup with a red-on-red ombre or go a little more daring and look into rainbow designs or colors that seem like they might otherwise clash.
4. Try Out More Dramatic Looks
Fall is also the season for Halloween. As the months change to September and October, you might be able to introduce some costume-y styles into your everyday makeup. These months are the perfect time to try out super dramatic looks, such as cool false eyelashes that have rhinestones attached, a black lipstick, or anything else that seems a little too daring for your everyday look otherwise.
5. Create Glowing Skin
The colder months mean that you’re likely to spend less time in the sun overall, and that likely means you’ll lose the sun-kissed look over the winter. The tanning salon may catch your eye, but experts strongly caution you away from that option. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, even a single treatment session can increase your risk of developing skin cancer by 67%.
Instead, we recommend spray tans or self-tans, a great contour, and a beautiful highlight. While spray tans and self-tanners may bring to mind the orange-y hue of spray tans in the ‘90s, the modern tools create a realistic glow all over without the increased risk of skin cancer. Contour and highlighter also do wonders when you’re trying to create this look.
6. Discover Creative Neutral Lips
The phrase “neutral lips” may bring to mind just a simple coat of lip gloss or nude matte lipstick. However, there are plenty of creative opportunities for neutral lip looks. Try out a shimmery copper tone to instantly bring some unique styles to your lipstick, wear a beige or brown that’s slightly darker than your skin tone, or look into a reddish-brown to add some slight definition to your lips.
You can match your makeup to your surroundings in a variety of ways. When you start creating makeup looks that remind you of fall, you’ll be able to exercise your creativity. Mixing and matching these tips can help you do even more when it comes to creating beautiful makeup looks.
