If the end of summer has dampened your mood, don’t reach for the tissue box just yet – these five wearable fall beauty looks should cheer you up in a heartbeat! Though bronzers and beach days may be drawing to a close, smoky eyes, stained lips and matte skin are all trends to look forward to as autumn sets in. If your beauty routine could use a little inspiration, look no further…
1.) Violet eyes:
Soft, pretty purples were seen all over runways like Jason Wu and Gucci. If you have paler skin, find pastel purples with a blue tinge; if you have darker or warmer skin tones, experiment with deeper purples mixed with shimmery copper. Bring the focus to the eyes by keeping the rest of your look natural – a touch of peach blush and a swipe of sheer or nude lip balm on the lips add the perfect finish.

2.) Soft and Romantic:
Chocolate lids, dewy skin and petal pink lips are the perfect combination for those of you who like to keep things natural. For the perfect dewy glow, dab cream highlighter above the apples of your cheeks, across your forehead and down your nose. Finish with a facial spray to set your glowy look in place.
3.) Swept Back Side Part:
This fall it’s all about keeping things casual but refined – and what better way for a laidback-yet-polished look than a swept back low pony with a deep side part? This hairstyle is perfect on second-day hair; just spritz with dry shampoo for volume at the roots. To switch things up, twist your pony into a low bun or curl at the ends.
4.) Metallic French Mani
Give your French mani a twist by using a nude base and lining the tips with various shades of metal like they did at Rodarte. If you’re feeling especially daring, use a different metal shade on each digit!
5.) Mod Cat Eye
The classic cat eye gets a mod revamp this fall – think bigger, bolder and even more winged out! Extend the line past the inner corner of your eye for extra drama and glue on a couple of false eyelashes to your bottom lid (or draw them on with liner) for a pretty, retro look. Keep the rest of your look clean and finish off with a defined brow and matte lips (here’s how to matte-ify any of your shiny lipsticks!).
