When hot summer days are left far behind and you can forget about melting mascara and smearing liners, it’s time to look for some fresh fall makeup ideas. After all, you cannot wear the same makeup you had in summer during the autumn months. I love fall makeup since it’s all about heavy dramatic eyes, bold lips and warm natural hues. The magnificent colors of the season offer a great variety of new makeup patterns to try. I’ve compiled a list of top 7 fall makeup tips inspired by the richness and royalty of the season.
1. Bold eyebrows and nude eyes
While some women find bold eyebrows a bit masculine, I believe that well-defined brows can easily transform your appearance and set off your best features. Makeup professionals claim that well-groomed brows frame the face and make it more symmetrical. To avoid looking mannish, give your eyebrows a bit arched shape with a brush and eyebrow gel. For sparse eyebrows use soft brown pencil or shadows. Keep your eyes nude with shades of beige and some mascara. This is an absolutely elegant and sophisticated fall look.
2. Smoky purple eye makeup
Another beauty tip you cannot miss this fall is smoky eyes. Swerve from the traditional black and charcoal hues in favor of bright colors. Purple looks perfect with any eye color and it’s one of the most advantageous colors for a glamorous evening look. As a rule, if you opt for distinct eyes, I recommend playing down your lip makeup. But if you want to leave a lasting impression, don’t be afraid to add red color to your lips.
3. Stained lips
This fall you have to give a couple of bold colors a try! Matte, glossy, shimmering… with the breathtaking variety of bold lip colors your lips will truly stand out. I usually opt for deep ruby colors as they set off my dark brown eyes and tanned skin. Rosy blush completes my makeup. Obviously, this fresh and vibrant makeup makes a contrast with the golden season, but who says we cannot break the rules?
4. Rose gold makeup
Rose gold makeup is the best way to embrace the last warmth of the autumn days. This kind of makeup is soft, chic and completely autumnal since it combines the crispness and the warmth of the season. While copper or bronze hues may look too orange on certain skin tones, gold looks fabulous on all skin tones. Cover your eyelids with rosy shadows and apply gold eyeliner to your upper and lower lashes. You can also blend rosy and golden hues for more striking effect. Rose gold makeup is one of fall’s biggest trends so don’t miss it!

5. Dramatic cat eyes
While cat eye makeup is utterly universal and perfect for any season, it looks especially stunning in fall. Define your eye shape and understand what type of lines suit you best. Cat eye makeup is especially beneficial to close set eyes as it visually elongates your eye shape. For more dramatic look, use false eyelashes or apply thick layers of mascara. Not only will it add some intensity, but it will also give an eye lift effect. Cat eye makeup is classy and timeless and it’s appropriate for office and a night out.
6. Classic neutrals
One of the greatest benefits of wearing a nude makeup is that anyone could opt for this minimalistic makeup and still look fabulous. To begin with, hide all the imperfections with a light foundation and remove the excess luster with powder. Apply a highlighter to the chin, cheekbones and forehead. Instead of using mascara I simply twist my eyelashes with tongs and apply shimmering shadows under the brows and in the inner eye corners. It literally opens my eyes and makes them look more appealing. Keep your lips simple or apply a little bit of lip gloss to the center of your lips.
7. Subtle brown shades
This fall don’t forget about seductive, warm brown shades. Mild brown shades are perfect for almost all skin tones. Apply dusty brown shadows all over your upper lid and contour your eyes with deep black eyeliner. For more distinct look you can color the lower waterline and then cover your lashes with a few coats of brown mascara. For an overall warm look, use bronzer and copper lipstick.
So, ladies, there you have it! All of the biggest makeup trends for fall 2014. Sure, it doesn’t mean that you should follow these trends only. Fall season is very unpredictable and changeable, just like our mood. Fall makeup is changeable as well. Sometimes it’s flirty and subtle, and sometimes it’s rather fierce. Choose what you like but don’t overdo it. What’s your favorite fall makeup look?
