A dark lip for fall makes an undeniably bold and chic statement. While black certainly isn’t for everyone, you can dip your toes into the trend by trying a dark brown, or even a dark plum. Pair the lipstick with very clean makeup. Simply add a coat of clear brow mascara, a light foundation, a brown mascara, and maybe a light eyeshadow for more drama. Pair this look with effortless hair in beachy waves or an undone bun.

Glossy Nude Eyes

A glossy nude eye is a subtle way to incorporate a new trend into your daily routine. Pick a shade of nude or brown cream eyeshadow, and swipe it across the whole lid. To add a little extra oomph, add a darker shade in the crease. Keep eyebrows simple and full with a swipe of tinted brow mascara to keep the focus on the eyes. Use a bronzer close to your skin tone to lightly contour cheekbones, and use a clear gloss on lips to finish the look.

Dark Waterlines

Channel your inner mod girl with black eyeliner on the waterline. Rim the waterline with a waterproof eyeliner on the top and bottom, or just the bottom. Smudge black eyeliner under on the bottom lash line for an added dramatic effect, along with a few coats of black mascara. Keep the rest of the face dewy and clean with highlighter and a clear lipgloss.

Classic Red Lips

A classic brick red lip is a great match for every skin tone and style. Apply a cream lipstick over the lips, and keep lines clean by using concealer or foundation around the edges. Apply a black mascara to just the top lashes, and a highlighter under the eyebrow and near the tear duct. A light blush on the apple of the cheeks finishes the look. Keep hair loose and care free to modernize, and keep it from looking like a vintage throwback.

Blue and Bold

Turn some heads with graphic blue eyeshadow.Pick out a bright cobalt or navy shadow and cover the whole lid, or just the crease for a pop of color. To make the look a little less bold, use blue on only the inner half of the eye, and use a neutral like brown or gray on the outer edge. The focus is all on the eyes with this look, so keep the face simple with a light foundation, a nude gloss, and a light mascara. Keep hair sleek to avoid the look from going eighties.

  1. It’s definitely not for everyone, but I loved that there were such diverse looks for this season, so everyone can find something that works for them.
