Winged eyeliner has always made a sassy statement but this fall, we’re taking things up a notch with top and bottom, thick pointed liner. To make this look versatile, line the top by day and add the bottom liner after hours for some extra drama.

Not all fall makeup ideas are so bold. Some just highlight your natural beauty to create a soft yet striking look. Easy-to-use contouring kits come in a plethora of colors and finding a nude lipstick that is just a touch darker than your own lips is an absolute must.

This staple of 80s beauty is back with a vengeance. While many are divided on this daring trend, one can’t deny it is a head turner. While you can get this look with a little face powder and multiple coats of your own mascara, we recommend mascaras that are specifically formulated to give you this effect.

Brown lipsticks may be the ultimate 90s comeback but it is not the “it” shade for fall. Berries in pinks and even purples are where it’s at and look great with the tried and true fall smokey eye.
