The Best Fall Makeup Colors to Spice Up Your Look This Season
Fall. Is. Here.
If you’re like me, you spend the whole year waiting for the leaves to change and the air to get crisp. Because fall means pumpkin picking, caramel apples, spooky season, Thanksgiving dinner, and comfy clothes.
There’s just nothing better than this time of year.
As work and classes start back up again — whether in person or on Zoom — and the air gets chilly, you’re gonna have to start bringing out those cute cold-weather outfits you’ve got stuffed under your bed.
But warm, fun fall colors don’t have to end with your clothes.
If you want to really make the most of this season, you’ve gotta switch up your makeup routine, too.
Yep, you heard me right — it’s time to swap those bright summery pinks and yellows for romantic reds and oranges.
A fall makeup routine will make all the difference in your look and confidence this season. Sure, you may be attending classes or meetings from your couch. But you can still look cute while you do it, right?
Trust me. Getting all done up for yourself does wonders for your confidence and motivation.
So snuggle up, get cozy, and check out what makeup colors — and M2U NYC products — you should be wearing this fall.
Pumpkins, falling leaves, candy corn…
I’m pretty sure orange is the most obvious fall color out there. But make sure you’ve got the right shade on your vanity — one that’s too bright just won’t match the seasonal vibe.
For a dewy “just came in from the cold” flush, try out our Cream Blush ($6) in the shade “Spring Dust.” This color is great for autumn, and its soft pink-and-orange hue will quickly become your go-to blush for any occasion.
If you’re looking for a bold look, grab our Metallic Liquid Lip ($6) in “Copper.” Its warm shimmer gives the perfect dash of pumpkin spice to any fall outfit. Wear this trendy burnt orange on your lips, and you’ll be the talk of the town in no time.
It’s near impossible to find an eyeshadow palette filled with perfect fall shades. But with our Uptown Downtown palette ($12), you can finally have the seasonal shadows of your dreams. Use the orangey, coffee-themed shades — “Pumpkin Spice,” “Caramel,” and “Latte” — to add some fiery warmth to your eyeshadow looks.
You really can’t go wrong with a beautiful rusty color on your side this season.
Soft Gold Tones
Fall means warm vanilla sugar and gold jewelry.
And get this — you can use those warm, yellow tones in your makeup for a shimmering golden glow all season long.
When it gets colder, our skin starts to get dry and drab. It’s heartbreaking (but pretty inevitable). To perk up dull, cold-weather skin use our Luminizer ($5) in the color “Futurity.” This highlight will give you a gorgeous fire-side glow in seconds.
For something a little more glam, check out the “Champagne Sparklers” eye glitter in the Glitter Eyeshadow Set ($10). This spunky sparkle will give you a fun, fall eye makeup look for a night on the town.
Whether you go light or heavy with the golden glimmer, you’ll be sure to turn heads wherever you go.
Mauves and Deep Reds
The best of all the fall makeup colors — dusty pinks and purplish-reds.
That’s my personal opinion, anyway.
Get our Moisturizing Lipstick ($5) in the shade “Wine” to live out those red-lipped dreams of yours. You’ll make a lasting impression with this deep burgundy. Because nothing shows off your perfect pout like a bold lip, right?
When it comes to mauve, you have to get the color just right. You’re looking for a gentle, “Dusty Rose” — one of our Liquid Eyeshadow ($6) shades. This shadow is perfect for soft, everyday fall makeup, and will last you throughout the entire day.
These shades are sure to pack a bit of a punch, so get ready to treat your hallway like your runway.
Bright Blues and Dark Purples
You know what they say — fortune favors the bold.
If you’re really looking to make a statement this fall, opt for vibrant shades. Like our “Electric Blue” Eye Crayon ($3). With this buildable shadow, you can keep applying until you get the pop of color you’re looking for.
For an adventurous lip choice, go for the shade “Violet” from our Matte Lipsticks ($5). A daring purple-blue, this color is sure to make you stand out — even in a packed Zoom meeting.
Want a spooky, witchy vibe? Look back at our Metallic Liquid Lip ($6) in the shade “Dream.” This shadowy purple has a dash of magical shimmer to keep you excited all throughout the Halloween season.
Nothing will boost your confidence this season like a vivid cool color. Wear them with pride, cast some spells, and take no prisoners.
These colors are perfect for people who love to go au naturel.
Check out our Lip Gloss ($5) in the shade “Crash.” It has a subtle color and an awesome, long-lasting shine that emphasizes and fills out your lips. This gloss is perfect for that no-makeup-makeup look you’re going for.
If you’re looking for a muted lip tone, but one that has a little more color, look at our Matte Liquid Lip ($6) in “Milk Tea.” You’d be surprised at how powerful a matte nude lip can be — it’ll easily bring together any outfit you create from your fall wardrobe.
Need to upgrade your nude eyeshadows this fall? Our BKB palette ($12) comes with six beautifully neutral options — in both matte and shimmer finishes — to create soft, dreamy shadow looks. You’ll always have an easy-breezy beauty with these shades.
Pro tip: nude tones are always an effortless, delicate way to add a little energy to your monochromatic fits.
It doesn’t matter if you’re going to school or work online or in-person this fall. You still want to look and feel your best, right?
Even if it looks a little different this year, you can still do all of your fun fall traditions from the comfort of your own home — and look good while you do them.
So put on that fall outfit and makeup, and go out (or stay in) with a bang this season.
