Pumpkin Spice Makeup Is Officially a Thing

Apr 5, 2017

I have a new makeup trend alert for you and this one is just in time for fall and all things pumpkin. If you need more than a steaming Pumpkin Spice Latte to curb your appetite for the orangey goodness that takes the world by storm this time of year, you are in luck because I am talking about something totally new and totally perfect for fall – Pumpkin Spice makeup.

Don’t worry, you are not going to look like an Oompa Loompa or, maybe even worse, a jack-o-lantern. Have no fear, lovelies, this makeup trend gives you just the right amount of fall color to get you in the mood for the new season while still looking incredible.

Pumpkin Spice makeup costs as Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice makeup can be found in powder form, mineral makeup, or even pigmented eyeshadow for about the same cost as your beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte, so typically around five dollars.

My favorite form would have to be the pumpkin highlighter, which is a gorgeous shimmery orange that lasts all day long without settling into your fine creases. Want a little more color for a bold pop or just want to take up more space on your lid? Use it as an eyeshadow! It’s your face so have it your way.

As with any good makeup, these pumpkin products are buildable and blendable so you can layer it on for extra drama or take it down a notch for just a hint of orange with a single swipe of your brush. How bold and daring you go is completely up to you and in your control so just play around with it and see what the best level for you is depending on the look that you are going for.

Pumpkin highlighter paired with a smoky brown eye

Want to know my favorite way to wear the newest Pumpkin Spice trend in makeup? I love the look of the pumpkin highlighter paired with a smoky brown eye. So warm and sultry looking. Or you can even wear it alone and let the color take center stage.

Now I feel like I really should warn you: this may not be a color that is great for everyone (sorry ginger friends), but you should definitely try it out and see if it is one that you can rock.

Major makeup brands have a few options for Pumpkin Spice makeup so you can pick up some next time you are at the mall, or you can find some great products on Etsy. I love finding new brands to try and a lot of times you can find great organic makeup for crazy cheap prices when you look outside of the big retail stores so don’t be scared to venture out.

Aren’t you so ready for fall? It is my favorite season. I can almost feel it in the air and this Pumpkin Spice makeup is only making us all the more ready for it. Bonfires, football games, apple picking, Halloween… they will all be here before you know it so you better start perfecting this new makeup trend now!
