Fall Makeup Trends for 2023: Embrace the Season's Looks with Clean Beauty

Published September 18, 2023

As we exchange the scorching heat for cool, crisp mornings and say goodbye to summer, it's time to put away our coral blushes and pink lip glosses. Every new season calls for a change in our wardrobe and makeup routine, and Fall is no exception.

Autumn is synonymous with earthy tones, cozy sweaters, and a makeup shift toward the warm side of things. Here's a look at some beautiful Fall makeup trends to try this season.


1. Embrace Earthy Tones

Fall is all about embracing the earthy tones in your makeup palette. Depending on your mood or the occasion, you can choose from burnt umber, dark burgundy, deep oranges, or coffee browns. Create a beautiful monochromatic look on the eyes using this season's warm tones as your guiding inspiration.

2. Experiment with Bold Lips

Swap out your tinted lip products for a fun, bold lip color. Think deep plum, merlot, or even a bright copper.

Aluistic is a bright metallic copper that's perfect for those days when you want your makeup to capture the glimmer of the season. The color is reminiscent of brilliant fall leaves, adding warmth and a touch of glamour to any look.

Pair a bold lip with natural makeup to give your face a sophisticated yet simple finish. An added bonus? Deep lipstick shades are perfect for virtual meetings, making your face pop even on the computer screen.

3. Glowing Skin 

Fall makeup isn’t only about the face; it extends to skincare as well. The cool Autumn air can take a toll on your skin, making it look duller and dry. Keep your skin glowing and healthy by adding hydrating masks, oils, and moisturizers to your regime. A well-prepped skin creates the best canvas for any makeup! Hydrating and illuminating makeup products will be your best friends. To create an inner glow, use a hydrating serum or primer under your foundation and add a luminous blush or highlighter for that extra shine. You will look naturally radiant and your skin will thank you!

4. Metallic Eyes

This Fall is the right time to give metallic colors a try! Gold, bronze, silver, or champagne shades—no matter what metallic hue you choose, you're sure to stand out. You can swipe these colors over your whole eyelid for a bold look or use them in the inner corners of your eyes for a subtle pop. If you want to dip your toes into a bolder shade than you are used to, a great way is to use them as a liner. Dip a firm brush into your metallic eyeshadow and line your eyes for a pop of color!

5. Full, Natural Eyebrows

The "feathered eyebrow" trend will continue through this Fall, a shift from overly sculpted brows to more natural-looking eyebrows. All you need is a clear (or tinted) brow gel to keep your brows in place along with an eyebrow pencil or powder to fill in any sparse areas. You'll be ready to go in a flash!

 6. Finishing Off on the Right Note

Finalizing your makeup with a sweep of mascara is like adding the cherry on top of a sundae – it's the key to sealing a complete, polished look. A quality mascara allows you to dress your lashes, adding an elegant finishing touch without any clumping or heaviness. By doing so, you illuminate your eyes, making them a focal point of your radiant look. 

Using the right mascara shouldn't overcomplicate things. Instead, it should add definition and volume to your lashes, enhancing your eyes without the heaviness or clumps. A simple swipe can capture your expressive eyes and reflect your radiant self-confidence. It's not just about looking good; it's about feeling good too.

Fall makeup is all about embracing the changing weather and channelling your inner Autumn god(dess) and most importantly, have fun! Makeup is a form of self-expression, and there's no better time to experiment than the turn of a new season. Enjoy the Fall and let your makeup be as captivating as the season itself!
