Oftentimes, as the seasons change, people’s beauty routines follow suit. From humidity and harsh sun, to dry air and strong winds, it’s no wonder our hair, skin, and makeup products operate on heavy rotation! Thus, as we transition from summer to autumn, it may be time to swap out the mattifying powders and pastel hues for some more seasonal elements.

Echoing the weather itself, autumn makeup trends are all about the warm and earthy seasonal tones. Think rusts, muted corals, and varying shades of browns.

Here, we explore the must-try trends of the season…

Orange Blush

No, you will not look like a clown… Orange-toned blushes are a great way to embrace the autumn season. Giving a warm and healthy flush, the shade is flattering on a variety of undertones. On fairer skins, orange blushes also work well in place of bronzer. With a light hand, blend out your blush of choice for a rusty look even the turning leaves will be jealous of.

Metallic Eyes

From the runway to the streets, the designers have spoken and metallic eyeshadow will be a hit this autumn/winter. Blend out your smoky eye with a hit of silver for a hint of cool-girl edge.

Peach Lips

As the weather gets cooler, colour can often be drained from our faces. Add back that look of health and vivacity with a warm, peach-toned lip. Tying in perfectly with an orange blush, you’ll look naturally flushed with every application.

Subtle Smoke

Forgo the dramatic smoky eye for a more subtle look. It’s the ‘got-no-sleep’ look but make it chic. Lightly blend a dark shadow shade around the perimeter of your eye for that extra hint of definition. Opt for a warm tone for that extra autumnal feel.

Glossy Skin

Glowy skin will never go out of style, but this autumn we’ve got our eyes on glossy skin. Referring to the use of a non-shimmery highlighter, it grants the ultimate lit-from-within look – like you just stepped inside from a gusty walk.
