How to Do Makeup for Fall

The leaves on the trees are changing color and so should you. Liven up your look with a whole new color palette.


  • Step 1: Use moisturizer Work a mineral-based moisturizer into your skin and let it dry.
  • Step 2: Add primer Add a primer to smooth out your skin's texture and to cover large pores.
  • Step 3: Brush on foundation Brush on powder it to set it, creating a base for the makeup.
  • TIP: Warm earth hues that reflect nature are great choices for fall. Ask a cosmetics consultant about shades that will suit your skin.
  • Step 4: Lay on sheen Lay on a sheen of subtle, metallic foundation that is not shiny but will give your skin a glow.
  • Step 5: Darken the eyes Lay on a matte gray, brown, copper, or gold eye shadow. Darken your eyebrows one shade deeper than they are naturally to add emphasis. Then line them with black for a smoky look, amplified with black mascara or false eyelashes.
  • Step 6: Apply blush Apply a light peach or berry blush, but don't overdo it.
  • TIP: If you draw attention to one area, lighten up on the others to keep that focus. For emphasizing makeup, choose eyes or lips; never both.
  • Step 7: Use deep glosses for lips Use deep cherry red, wine, orange, or hot pink lip gloss in the fall. Holding it with a lip foundation first will make the colors pop even more. Now go out in confidence that you will look your best for the duration of the season.
  • FACT: Before the 19th century, men were as likely as women to use cosmetics.
