The transition in weather is apparent on the ramp as there have been a slew of fresh ideas and collections in fashion and makeup. At the forefront is the smoky eye trend that has been fast catching steam on YouTube. But that’s not all. There are a million ways to incorporate the lush and vivid colors of the season into your makeup routine without looking ungainly. You don’t need to head out to the salon and blow a hole in your wallet either. With a little tips and a few hacks, you will be all set to recreate a stunner right at home.
Here’s our pick of the best homemade fall eye makeup tips for you.
Fall is all about the season’s orange hues which can be clubbed with a hint of black to create a burnt orange look that captures the essence without looking overly dramatic. All you need is a little orange and black shadow to recreate this amazing look that will grab eyeballs for sure. Blend orange shadow on your lids with a fluffy brush to create the smoky effect. Use a small pointed brush to apply the same effect in the lower lash. Pair it with black eye shadow and finish the look with a hint of nude on your lips.
Who says that fall can only be about the oranges and the browns? You can create a piercing stare with very minimal effort. All you need is some eyeliner. The best part of going all-black is that there are no rules written in stone. You can be as creative as you’d want to be. Use an angled brush to spread the shadow as far as you’d want it to go and then use a Q-tip to smoothen out those edges. Easy and effective.
If your fall eye makeup was limited to muted shades then its time to get some glitter into your lids. Metallic colors with a hint of shimmer have been making a marked presence on some celebs and this is the perfect time to replicate the look with minimal fuss at home. You don’t have to be limited in the color choices either. From bronze to gold to silver, there is no dearth of choices. Makeup is pretty limited too. All that you need to do is use an eyeshadow brush and go from the lash to the crease gently.
The shimmer can be extended with a hint of brown. Think fallen leaves meeting shiny boots. For a change, we get to go upwards from the lips. Start off by picking your favorite shade of brown for your lips and then look for an eyeshadow that can match it. Limit the brown eyeshadow to the crease though. Unleash the shimmer on the lids for a perfect blend.
Red takes some skill to pull off without looking sickly. The idea is to not goo overly light but not go overboard either lest you end up looking like Elvira. Use a combination of maroon, nudes and then add some shimmer to go with it.
