Autumn Makeup Look

Hello guys!

Any fall makeup look will bring greater contrast to the features, with deeper colors and jewel tones. Classic fall colors include plums, berries, golds, burgundies, reds, and wines — all the colors of changing leaves.

Below I have modeled a sample fall makeup look — and will explain the color theory behind it!

Contrasts are pleasing to the eye. Colors are divided into WARM and COOL shades, and the contrast between these two constitute an essential element of beauty.

WARM Shades (Earth Tones)
Browns
Reds
Oranges (including coral)
Yellow (including gold)

COOL Shades (Jewel Tones)
Blues
Purples
Pinks

Green is NEUTRAL.

So if you play with this concept, you can pair these colors, particularly those opposite one another on the color wheel, to create striking makeup looks! For example, in this look, I have paired a warm-toned rose gold shadow (on the lid) with a cool-toned plum shadow (in the crease):
