Fall Into these 7 Autumn Beauty Trends

Fall is here which means spooky season, pumpkin everything, cozy sweaters, and new beauty trends. Whether you’re a makeup professional or just dabbling here and there, there are some trends you need to try.

1. Natural Base Makeup

What is base makeup, you may ask? Think whatever you usually put on first: foundation, concealer, setting powder… The things that are the base of your makeup. This season, natural is in. For my people who may not feel like they can go natural (hello, acne-prone skin), there are ways to make your full-coverage makeup look natural so it looks like you’re not wearing a dang thing.

2. Cream Everything

Cream makeup users rejoice! Cream products are back in. With today’s market, no matter your skin type, you’ll be able to find cream products that work for you. Here are some foundations you can try based on your coverage preference:

  • Light coverage: it Cosmetics CC cream+ – think tinted moisturizer (usually with SPF)
  • Light-to-medium coverage: Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB cream – barely there, buildable coverage
  • Medium coverage: NARS Sheer Glow Foundation – easily buildable coverage
  • Heavy coverage: e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation – fewer applications necessary

3. Soft-Lined Eyeliner

In the past, we’ve seen one trend for eyeliner be harsh, precise lines. This season, one eyeliner trend is softer application. What does this mean? Grab a q-tip and smudge those lines. For those with unsteady hands, this trend is made for you.

4. Burnt Blush

In the past, bubblegum blush was in. Bonus points if it had shimmer. For this fall, trade that bright pink for a darker, richer, red-ish pink. Think dark roses and brown-based colors. With these shades, you won’t need much, but just as darker-colored clothes come into play for the fall months, so should your blush.

5. Silver Inner Corners

There are a few great things about this trend. One: it takes virtually no time. Two: it looks like it took you waaaay longer than it did to do your makeup. Three: it will make you look more awake. Those are all worth-it things in my book. Makeup stores sell individual shades of grey, as well as cream or liquid forms you can dab in the corners of your eyes.

6. Goth/Smokey Makeup

I have been doing all-around black eyeliner since I first picked up a makeup product in middle school, and I know there are others who have, as well. For those of us, our trend is back! Goth makeup is back in. Think dark shadows, liners, lip colors, and anything else you can find in black, dark purple, or whatever other dark color that makes your little dark heart happy.

7. Glass Lips

Gloss is back in! This may not make it easy when it’s windy – I suggest investing in a claw clip for those days you want that glossy, glassy, mirror-like look. With just about every makeup brand that’s out there, you can find a glossy lip color, whether that’s colored, clear, or sparkly.

Fall is upon us whether we’re ready or not. Grab some friends and plenty of PSLs and hit up your local makeup store to stock up on products for autumn 2022.
