We know: what with the dreary weather and spring/summer Fashion Weeks on the brain just to rub it all in, it’s pretty much impossible to get excited about fall. The beauty aspect is especially depressing, considering it’s time to trade in our tinted SPF moisturizers for foundation, tousled ombre waves for darker autumnal hues, and sheer pink lips for full-coverage reds and nudes — it’s all enough to make a girl want to hibernate only to emerge next May. Fortunately, celebrities have been dabbling in fall looks for months now, so drawing inspiration from them can make the transition a little easier on the rest of us. Behold, the prettiest fall looks that may just have you looking forward to cable knits and crunchy leaves…
The “Magic Mike” actress nailed the quintessential fall look with radiant skin, a bit of black liner, and the perfect plum lipstick.
Milla works this lush, high-impact look — a vivid raspberry lipstick becomes a sexy just-bitten flush when dabbed on with fingertips, and smoky bronze shadow adds drama without the harshness of black.
With her perfectly sculpted brows, major lashes, and true red lips complemented by a peachy flush, Cobie looks like a modern Marilyn meets Jackie O. We love it.
The best way to wear the season’s deep burgundy lip is like this, with an otherwise fresh face and natural hair.
Thick black liner is always a good look, but a hint of plum shadow beneath the browbone takes it to the next level, and Lucy’s glossy berry-toned lip color is so flattering on olive skin.
If you’re not inclined to the season’s dramatic contrasts and dark hues, Jessica’s soft, neutral look is perfect. Mauve lipstick and shades of well-blended brown shadow are suited to every season.
If you want to look like a porcelain doll, this is how you do it — matte coral lipstick, loads of rosy blush right on the apples of cheeks, and highlighter in the inner corners of eyes to brighten up the whole face.
If you’re not ready to bid au revoir to your sheer pink lipstick just yet, pair it with contoured cheekbones and thick strokes of a creamy black pencil liner for a fall-ready look that’s still fresh and bold.
The notoriously flawless reality star always achieves perfection with her makeup looks, but this one is especially good: eyes rimmed entirely in dark brown kohl, with a mauve shadow on the lids, is the ideal counterpoint to a soft, low-maintenance berry-tinted lip balm.
