Smoky shadows, brown lipsticks, and pops of neon, oh my!
Refreshing your makeup stash is a rite of passage for the transition between every season. Fortunately, fall 2019 beauty trends leave a lot of room for inspiration—the return of some autumnal classics are reimagined with modern twists for looks that are anything but boring. A season-specific guiding hand is always useful, so delve into these eight popular trends that are guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing.
Euphoria has inspired a glitter revolution, and we're not mad about it. A little glimmer on your eyes can be made appropriate for just about any occasion. Subtle glitter on your lashline—or on your lashes—is perfect for those who don’t want to commit to a sequin-level shine.
A little goes a long way with this Fenty staple.
The pointed tip of this Urban Decay glitter eyeliner makes for easy application.
Smoking out your lash line is the quickest way to create an illusion of bigger and wider eyes. If you feel like you don't have the lid space to work with thin liquid liners (s/o to all my hooded lids or monolids gals), smoky lines are a great alternative. Try mixing black and gunmetal shadows in your palettes to add more dimension.
This luxe palette will take you from day to night in an instant.
Maybelline's iconic gel eyeliner is a steal at just $10.
This shade of orange is less "pumpkin spice" and more "firefighter hat," and yet a monochromatic look with the hue is no less autumnal and just as wearable. Just remember to apply in moderation. Hot tip: blend a blood orange shadow in your crease and take a lipstick of the same shade across your cheeks and lips in desired intensities. Et voilà! You’re red—or should I say blood orange—carpet ready.
Kat Von D's crème lipstick is a joy to smooth over your lips, and the color lasts for hours.
Go for gold with this pretty, long-lasting YSL shade.
The deep hue is making a strong revival this fall, and brown lips surprisingly versatile considering just how many variations there are. You could go for a brown with wine tones like Priyanka Chopra, or full “Friends”-era Jennifer Aniston with a milk chocolate. As with red lipstick, there’s a perfect shade for everybody.
Like all of Bobbi Brown's products, this lipstick is designed to enhance your natural beauty.
This milk chocolate-colored shade will suit a variety of skin tones.
One-and-done eyeshadows are the lazy-girl hack to eye makeup. And this fall, you should sprinkle some bright pastels and jewel tones into your single shadow stash. The final look will look like you put some serious thought into it, even though all you really did was pop your finger into a cream shadow and swipe it across your lids. Easy peasy, bright and breezy.
This rich sapphire-themed palette will make you feel like you're in Capri.
Ulta's vibrant eyeshadow line comes in this vibrant red.
Smoky eyes have never gone out of style, but a little restructuring can add freshness to even the most trite of trends. Invert your standard black liner look and transform it into a more graphic look. Try a crease cut with black cream eyeshadow and press a chunky glitter pigment right on your upper lash line.
This super-simple applicator is basically foolproof.
Colour Pop's sweet-as-candy glitter gel will make you feel fancy wherever you go.
Summer is ending, but that doesn't mean your skin has to show it. Keep summer vacation going with a dewy, bronzed complexion. Creamy products are key–layer moisturizers, highlighters, blushes, and bronzers to achieve this just-came-back-from-Cancún glow (even if the closest to the tropics you got was scrolling through your social media feed).
A glow in a compact. Bonus: It's a vegan, cruelty-free product.
With this Hourglass bronzer, you'll have everyone believing you've just breezed in from vacation.
The '80s is making a resurgence when it comes to eye makeup. Neon is making an especially convincing comeback, and it's super wearable when diffused in the inner corner. Metallic or matte, it's a surefire way to animate an otherwise monochrome look.
Violet Voss' rainbow palette is filled with vibrant tones that will leave you looking anything but boring.
Dior's classic liquid eyeliner is iconic for a reason.
