Glitter gets a bad rap, but it’s been making a comeback in 2016. A chic way to wear it: a simple line across your upper lids.
8. Jewel-Tone Smoky Eyes
Smoky eyes are always a favorite, but applying jewel tones like blue, emerald and indigo bring out your eyes and add a ’60s flair to your face.
9. Mixed Mattes and Metallics
Metallics have been huge for 2016, but all-over metallic shadow can get a little overwhelming. Keep your upper lid matte black and stick the shimmery stuff on your lower lash line instead.
10. Burnt Orange
Smoky eyes with black shadow are cool and all, but orange is obviously the more seasonal choice for fall. Use a fluffy brush to blend orange shadow (picture the shade of roasted sweet potato flesh, if you will) into the crease of your eye, and then smudge it along your lower lash line with a tiny pointed brush. Finish your look with a matte nude lip to keep the focus on those eyes, girl.
11. True Brown
When you think fall, you think fallen leaves, warm drinks, and leather boots — things that come in rich brown hues. Coincidentally, this shade is also the perfect lip color for the season. Pair it with a matching shadow along the crease of your eyes, and add some dimension with a cream-colored shimmery shadow on your eyelid, keeping the focus on the inner corners.
12. Blood Orange
It’s been a while since the words “vibrant shadow” and “brow bone” went together. But the right shade of orange — like this one from Kylie Cosmetics in “Citrine” — is bold without being overwhelming. Use a neutral brown eye shadow near your lash line and blend it out toward your crease. Then, go back with an orange shadow and focus the pigment along your crease, blending it up toward your brow bone. All you need on your lips is a nude gloss and you’re ready for your hayride.
