Dust off your fluffy sweaters, and seasonal fall candles, and unbox your favorite pumpkin-spiced recipes because the first signs of autumn’s anticipated trends have finally arrived – that means smokey eye/power lip combos, toasted color palettes, and never-ending shelves of Halloween home décor.
After a summer of scorching heat waves and endless sweat streaks, it’s finally our turn, us autumn-loving girlies, to step into our power.
And just as fashion, hairstyles, and nail trends start shifting for the cool season, so do makeup trends…which we must say are nothing short of glamorous – something every Neytiri fan and certified beauty enthusiast will be proud to show off.
So, get your fall mood boards ready, babes, because ahead are the latest fall makeup trends you’ll want to try out, as demonstrated by TikTok, IG, and Pinterest.
Metallic Blurred Lids
Chromed-up and gunmetal eyeshadow colors are an edgy alternative to bright, glittery, and neutral hues. Plus, you can always tailor this look to your liking by applying it to the corners of your eyelids for a subtle pop, combining colors for a dramatic smokey eye, or applying one shade for a quick wash of color.
If you’re not sure where to start, the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Quartz Eyeshadow Palette ($67) is an incredible option. It comes in these unbelievably buttery foil-like metallics that feel almost velvety-smooth but look molten metal-like when you swipe them across your eyelids. Honestly, they’re the most incredibly stunning metallic blurring colors we’ve ever seen.
Can we hear a little commotion for shiny, plump lips like the ones above? This whole look is nothing short of bold, and we’ll be rocking it on every date night come fall, TVYM.
If you don’t know which product gives you this sexy, naturally-enhanced look, give the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Lip Luminizer in Hot Chocolit ($20) a try.
The ultimate gotta-have-sexy-glossy-lips gloss feels as awesome as it looks. In seven jaw-dropping shades handpicked by queen Riri herself, this gloss is the ultimate finishing touch to any fall makeup look.
Black Graphic Liner With Bright Accents
Ever since the Euphoria effect, graphic liner has become the beauty trend du jour. So, in true beauty buff fashion, we’re reigniting this hot summer makeup look in honor of the coolest summertime series that put it on the map.
And yes, black eyeliner might be the furthest thing from Euphoria’s graphic-colored eyes spectrum, but it adds more depth to your colored look and is undoubtedly bold. Plus, the monochromatic baby pink lids bring warm fall shades into play, and we’re all here for it.
The best liner for this sexy, Euphoria-like look? The Pat McGrath Labs Perma Precision Liquid Eyeliner ($34). Its endlessly versatile liquid formula glides on flawlessly for a smudge-free look. Its uniquely flexible precision tip is the ultimate tool for creating the best eye effects, including avant-garde graphics, dramatic goth-like blackouts, and coquettish cat eyes.
No matter how incredible your mascara is, sometimes popping a sexy strip lash is the difference between having voluminous and va-va-voom eyelashes.
Plus, with fluttery, super-light, and subtly-flared lashes like the Eylure Pre-Glued Texture No.117 Lashes ($11.40), you can enjoy lush, natural-looking curl and definition, too.
Power Lips & Smokey Eyeshadow
Yes, sporting a bold smokey eye and a vibrant lip simultaneously can feel too dramatic, but if you want to channel your inner baddie this fall, you need to go for this bold look.
Going out for pumpkin spice lattes with your girls? Smokey eyes and bold lips are your go-to. Dressing up for a date night? Duh, smokey power!
The NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette in Smokey ($18) gives you a surprisingly bold smokey eye, while the Lip Bar Vegan Matte Liquid Lipstick in Rebel ($14) allows for a super-mattey, long-lasting, bold lip look.
This is definitely the winner of the most glamorous fall makeup trends of 2022. Not only does it bring some sparkle into your life, but also gives you that detailed, futuristic look.
And the best thing, crystals and shiny jewels are readily available, so you can get some for yourself at Target, Walmart, Ulta, and every other beauty store.
If you lived for summer’s dewy, glazed skin, you’ll be happy to know that we’re bringing this trend with us in the fall. A stunning cool shimmer across your face – mainly your cheek area, instantly adds a subtle charm to any beauty look, and we’ll be using the Gucci Éclat De Beauté Effet Lumière ($18) to achieve the most lustrous glow!
Formulated with a gel texture, the multi-use face gloss adds a veil of transparent illumination and sculpts facial features, creating a reflective, dewy finish. Plus, it can be applied to the eyes, cheeks, or lips, which is a win-win for us.
This look isn’t for the faintest of hearts, but almost all beauty buffs are trying it. So, if you’re not into rocking thin brows, you can try the bleached brow look.
And if you’re not a huge fan of bleaching brow hairs, celebrity makeup artists recommend using a low-commitment skin-toned concealer like the KosasRevealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer ($28).
It helps your brow hairs appear thinner, sexily bleached, and reveal blemish-free, better-looking skin.
Barely There Base Makeup
We’re leaving heavy, cakey foundation behind this fall and choosing tinted, lightweight moisturizers or foundations instead. Plus, with an IG and TikTok approval, what could be better?
Looking for the best barely-there product suggestions? Fenty Beauty’s Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint ($32) is a perfect option. It creates a light coverage, instantly evens out your complexion, and delivers a flattering blurred effect.
Statement Brow Art
This is clearly the year of the brow – bleached, skinny, or creatively painted like Doja Cat’s. And, to rock these statement brows, you should get a pro black and colored brow pencil like this set from Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow ($25).
It gives you a cool, defined fall look, and the statement brow art allows you to channel your inner Amy Sherald.
