It's back-to-school season, which means that fall is on its way. Aside from all the obvious benefits that autumn brings (who doesn't love giant leaf piles and pumpkin spice lattes?), it also gives you the opportunity to completely revamp your makeup routine. As the seasons change, so do the colors that should be included in your cosmetics. With so many options to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start - should your eyeshadow palette reflect the seasons or your skin tone? Take a deep breath, because we've got you covered:
When it comes to autumn lipstick, nothing beats the rich hues of plum. While the fruit is best eaten in the summertime, this deep purple shade is the perfect complement to the colors most commonly found in fall clothing. To make sure your lip line is sharp, use a matching liner to keep the color in place.
It may seem counterintuitive - after all, isn't orange a summer shade? - but orange-hued eyeshadows look subtly chic when blended just above the crease of your lid. To get this luxe look, choose a copper color with just a hint of orange.
Jewel tones are always stunning in the fall. For a look you can wear during the day (and that won't make you look like the Wicked Witch of the West), rim your eyes in black pencil and use just a touch of emerald eyeshadow along your lower lashes.
A color that never goes out of style, taupe looks good on absolutely everyone. You can use it pretty much anywhere - on your eyes, lips or cheeks. Choose a formula with a touch of shimmer to give yourself a soft glow.
