Best Fall Makeup Colors

Stunning Ways to Incorporate Fall’s Hottest Colors Into Your Beauty Looks

A new season calls for a fresh, new beauty look. We've partnered with Ulta Beauty to help you get inspired by the hottest trends and discover everything you need to make them your own.

Arguably the biggest sartorial shift from season to season happens between Summer and Fall. Textures get thicker, colors grow darker, and the overall vibe becomes moodier. Your makeup is no different. From deep reds to intense browns, incorporating rich hues into your beauty palette will update your look and create a distinction from the punchy shades reminiscent of Summer. But this time around, instead of reaching for your usual colors, we're forecasting four very specific shades you'll want to wear once September hits — along with the must-have products you need to sport them in stunning ways that feel uniquely you.

We're calling it: reds and oranges are the new neutrals. Bring the heat with vibrant copper layered on your lids and lips. For an on-trend twist and an instant confidence boost, try a metallic pout that will smolder and shine.

We love any excuse to load up on the glitter. For a magical glow that celebrates your natural radiance, and a new take on the usual metallics, generously dust shimmery cream-colored shadow across your lids. Then, keep the rest of your face fresh in order to let your eyes truly sparkle.


Dark red

Deep red may be a typical Fall standby, but in addition to your lips, there are other unique ways to wear the color that highlight your favorite features. Go for full-on drama with a strong burgundy lip matched with an unexpected shock of sheer red swiped across your cheeks. The effect is classic glamour, but with an edge.


Earthy brown

Amp up your usual smoky eye with smudged kohl liner and undone eye shadow in deep brown tones. But instead of a typical matte finish, experiment with a slick, glossy effect on the lids and lips for a one-of-a-kind look.
