One thing about me is that I love to be dolled up: hair done, face done, everything did. Beauty is more than just makeup or hair to me, it's how I express creativity on the daily. To be honest though, my makeup game can definitely use an upgrade. I don't need anything too extravagant but I want to get better with my contour and eyeshadow skills, you feel me? I've been doing my makeup the same way for a minute now and it's time to switch things up and learn some new tricks. With entering a new season, it's the best time to try something new. There are a bunch of girls on IG giving us lewks and the tea on how to achieve the ourselves (shoutout to y'all).
So, whether you're getting ready for work, date night, or a girls night out, I encourage you to try something new or add a little extra touches of fall to your look. Don't worry, I'm going to set you up with everything you need. Thanks to apps like Instagram, all the inspiration is literally at our fingertips.
Here are 10 looks that will have you slaying this season.
1. Bronzed With A Pop of Color
I love that Makeup Shayla incorporated a lot of warm brown and nude tones to this look and to add extra pop, she added a pop of color to her inner corner highlight. SB: This is the level of contour I aspire to have.
Taylor Anise killed this. It was a very simple face beat, but she made the statement with her bold red lip and her goldie eyelids. So if you're not for the contour and extra stuff, this is a nice creative alternative to spicing things up.
3. Warm Glowy Lewks
I honestly feel like Ronke is always fall-ready and tends to have natural elements in her makeup looks. The natural warm and darker hues with highlights seems to be her thing and she slays it very well.
4. Neon Green Lewks
Summer may be over, but this neon green trend is here to stay. Alissa Ashley is rockin' a neon green eyeliner with green eye gems to spice things up.
I haven't perfected the cut crease yet but this is definitely a look I want to try for date night or a girls' night out. YouTuber Forever Aylssa is wearing a mix of purple eyeshadows and a subtle pop of glitter to bring this look to the next level. Glitter is an easy way to follow the trends of the season. With Christmas sneaking up on us, the shiny glitz and glam is a must this season!
6. Dark Colors
Don't be afraid to play with darker hues. I love makeup looks that incorporate dark colors like burgundy, brown, and black. This Japan-based content creator really killed this burgundy makeup look.
7. Smokey Eyes
A smokey eye is always a good idea. I love this dark green smokey with the brown underbrow detail. The colors blend really well together and is another simple way to bring a basic look into a fully glam look.
8. Keep It All The Way Natural
Aaliyah Jay looks stunning with this simple look! A completely natural look is my go-to. Just make sure your brows and lashes are on point and keep everything real simple.
9. Colorful Waterline
This is another summer favorite that's creepin' its way into fall and winter. Adding bold yet subtle details like a color into your waterline is definitely something you should try.
10. Fire Reds
This look is literally fire. The red and glitter blend is not only great for a holiday party but you'd definitely be serving some seductive looks with this eye makeup.
