We’re in the dog days of summer, which means autumn is just around the corner. While it doesn’t get particularly cold here in Dallas, Texas, we still love to welcome in the fall season. A great way to get into the spirit is by changing up your makeup and playing with some autumnal colors! We’ve put together a list of our favorite fall makeup colors for 2018. So hold onto your pumpkin spice latte and check it out!
Shades of Dark Red
Burgundy and other dark red shades are a fall staple. The easiest way to rock this color is on the lips. A dark wine-colored lip never goes out of style and always looks perfectly autumnal. Burgundy, wine, Merlot, and berry shades also all look fabulous on the nails. Want to go a little bolder with red? Try wearing it on your eyes! If deep, dark red makes you a little nervous, don’t worry, there’s a red eyeshadow for everyone. When you’re rocking a dark red eyeshadow, you’re making a statement. That means you can go lighter on the rest of your look. See? Being on-trend isn’t that hard after all!
Orange is more than just the color of autumn leaves and pumpkins– it can be the main focus of a rockin’ fall makeup look! Whether you choose to keep orange reserved for nails and lips, or you want to try it out on your eyes, this is a perfect fall color. When it comes to orange on the eyelids, less is more. You don’t have to cover your whole lid with neon, traffic cone colored orange (unless you want to). Try swapping your standard bronze colored crease shade for somethin with more of a rust, orange tone. It’s an easy way to add a burst of fall color to your standard eye makeup.
Blue makeup might remind you of your grandmother, but never fear. Navy blue is the perfect autumnal color for creating a classic smokey eye, no matter what eye color you have. This is a shade that looks great on just about everyone. A matte navy blue eye can be done with a light hand and worn during the day. Want to jazz it up for the evening? Apply more navy shadow with a heavier hand or switch the matte shadow out for something shimmery! You can even try switching your standard black mascara or eyeliner for navy blue tones if you really want to go nuts.
Too scared to try out a bold emerald green eyeshadow? Try it’s more neutral cousin, olive green. Olive green is a great makeup color choice because it mixes things up with a different color, but it’s also relatively subtle. This color is also neutral enough to complement most skin tones and eye colors, though blue eyes look particularly popping when paired with neutral shades like this. You can easily blend this shade in with your normal browns, bronzes, greys, and beiges to create a beautiful fall smokey eye or a soft daytime look.
Shades of Violet
Violet is another great statement color for fall. Perfect for the eyes, lips, nails, and even cheeks, this vibrant jewel tone is the perfect way to embrace the changing seasons. Anyone can rock violet eyeshadow, but if you’ve got green eyes, brace yourself. Green and violet are complementary colors, so choosing violet eyeshadow can leave you with eyes that are seriously stunning! Purple shades are awesome for fall because they range from bright violets and deep eggplant shades, to romantic lavenders and delicate periwinkles. So pick a violet from the bunch and go for it! It’s a beautiful way to spruce up your makeup for the fall.
