Easy Makeup Ideas for Fall

By Hannah Ross

For some, fall is a time to sip cocoa and snuggle on the couch in over-sized sweaters. for others, its walking through falling leaves and planning your Halloween costume. For me, fall is all about new hairstyles I can try, finally being able to paint my nails deep earthy tones, and of course, new makeup ideas for the crisp weather. This year, there is one makeup trend that has been popping up all over my beauty radar: brown smokey eye makeup with a nude lip. This trend is perfect for any skin tone or face shape, and perfect for day to night wear.

Step 1: Apply foundation, concealer, and powder to whole face (this sets the foundation).

Step 2: Apply black eyeliner to your water line and on the top of the eye right on the upper lash line.

Step 3: Using a soft dome brush apply dark brown eyeshadow right under your lower lash line.

Step 4: Using the same soft dome brush, apply a mocha eyeshadow form the eyeliner line to just above your crease.

Step 5: Use a pencil brush to apply black eyeshadow to the outer corner on your lid (it should slightly wing up).

Step 6: Using the soft dome brush, apply the dark brown used from under your eyes to the outer half of your lid (never going past your crease).

Step 7: Blend the dark colors on the outer part of your eye using a large blending brush and if needed, clean any excess color off with a q-tip.

Step 8: Finish off with black mascara and a nude lip color with shimmery gloss.

Step 9: Keep being you!
