Autumnal Eyeshadow: Looks Perfect For Every Occasion

On the catwalk this autumn it’s all about the earthy tones, rich textures, and orange hues, which means that makeup tones that are on-trend will be similar. When it comes to makeup, each year the on-trend looks for each season change slightly, depending what the colour of the season is. Of course, that being said, each year it is berry tones that take over when it comes to lipsticks, but that tends to be the only part of autumnal makeup that stays the same. When it comes to eyeshadow looks, trends tend to change each year.

To help you ensure that you stay on-trend this autumn with your eyeshadow, below are, a few autumnal eyeshadow looks to test out, as well as some tips for which eyeshadows are the best to use.

What are the best autumnal eyeshadow palettes?

When it comes to which eyeshadow palettes offer the widest selection of autumnal colours, it can be hard to choose. However, some of the best eyeshadow palettes include Too Faced Just Peachy, Huda Beauty Desert Dust, and Morphe 350. These are all matte-look eyeshadow palettes. For eyeshadow that has a shimmer to it, eyeshadows like the Makeup Geek foiled eyeshadows or the Colour Pop Super Shock Shadow.

What looks are most on-trend this autumn?

One of the most on-trend eyeshadow looks this autumn is the smokey eye. To create a gorgeous autumnal smokey eye, you will need three eyeshadow shades, each in varying lightnesses. Start by applying the lightest shade to the corners of your eye and to the brow bone, then apply the middle shade over the entire eyelid. Apply the darkest shade to the corners of your eyes and the crease, and carefully blend. Place a small amount of the darkest shade under your lower eyelid and blend in. For autumn smokey eyes, using foil-hued colours, like silver, gold, and copper can work well.

Another eyeshadow style that can work well when it comes to autumn is a cut crease. For a cut crease eyeshadow look, you will need three eyeshadow shades. Ideally, you want these to be three different shades of the same colour or tone. Start off by covering your entire eyelid in the lightest colour, then apply the darkest shade from the crease up towards the brow bone. Apply a small amount of the middle colour to the edges of the shadow and blend. This will create that cut crease look that you are looking for.

To create a beautiful snow globe eyeshadow look, you will need three to four colours. For an autumn look, using autumnal shades like copper, gold, and grey can work well. Start by applying the lightest shade across the whole eyelid and under the eye, followed by applying the middle shade to the corner of the eye, and below the lid, carefully blending it in. To top the look off, adding the darkest colour to the edges of each eye tends to work well, just make sure to blend it in.

There you have it, everything that you need to know about getting your autumnal eyeshadow looks spot on.
