Fall Eyeshadow Looks To Inspire You This 2022

posted in: Makeup | 2

When the weather starts cooling and the leaves start falling it always feels exciting. It feels like the start of something new, which is exactly what it is! The part I love best about fall is the colours that come with it. The leaves turn into the most beautiful deep shades of the rainbow. From reds and oranges to yellows and purples.

While the fall weather brings out all my cosy jumpers, I’ve got to be honest, it’s the spring that’s really my favourite. The longer days and warmer weather have really won me over! That being said, nothing beats the fall colours, they are simply beautiful. With the change of colours to the leaves, it’s time to change the colours of your makeup.

I’ve put together some fall eyeshadow looks to inspire you the season! If the leaves can have fun, so can you! Recreating these autumn looks may seem complex but these are really simple to create and fabulous to wear! Get in the spirit of fall:)

Fall Eyeshadow Looks To Inspire You

1. Fall In An Eye

I’ve called this a fall sunset look because it really reminds me of a sunset, yet with deeper fall colours as appose to pastels or brighter colours. It’s a really simple yet effective fall look.

Start with a deep red all over the eye and bring it out a bit. To create that intense shimmery gold/yellow, either use a damp brush or my favourite way is to spray the brush with some setting spray and then apply the shadow. It gives the most intense colour! Don’t forget to add some yellow to the inner corner and copy the shades underneath the eye!


2. Sunset Fall Eye

This look is a little harder to recreate than the previous look simply because of its amazing smooth blend! You really need some good blending brushes to pull off this look.

The colours remind me of an autumn leaf just in a smoother version! Looking at the eyes is mesmerising, they are beautiful and this look can really be worn any time of year, especially with their strong resemblance to a sunset!

To recreate this look, start with the lighter colours and slowly add the darker ones blending the whole time! Don’t forget to add that shimmer to the inner corner and under the brow. It helps bring the wow factor to the look!


3. PB&J Look

Anyone who loves peanut butter and jelly will love this look! Haha, just kidding, I happen not to like peanut butter and jelly together. Being English, it just doesn’t go with my taste buds! However, I love these eyes! They are fun, autumny and original!

To recreate, start with a light brown/beige all over the eye and eyelid. Then using a deep brown cover your eyelid until the crease and blend it out softly. To get those beautiful copper lines, use copper eyeliner, it’s easier to use than glitter and you won’t need to worry about any fallout!


4. Smokey Bronze Eye

I am obsessed with these eyes! It’s so simple yet so effective and the best part is anyone can do this look, no matter your level of makeup skills!

All you need is a base colour and an awesome intense bronze. This person used the Naked Heat Palette which is ideal for creating this look.

Use a base colour to cover the eye until the eyebrow. Then with a deep bronze cover the whole eye and part of the upper lid to create a smokey look. To get that pop of colour, take a lighter shade of bronze and dab it in the middle. Of course, don’t forget about the shimmer on the inner corner of the eye and under the brow!


5. Rainbow Eyes

Ok, so this look is one of the harder ones to recreate, simply because of all the colours involved. However, the results are totally worth it. Maybe not for an everyday look, but definitely for a party and a fun evening out!

The rule of thumbs is to always start with the lighter colours when you want to mix colours. So start with a base colour, or go straight for the orange colour. Cover the eyes and bring it up the brows. Then take a light yellow shade and cover just the eyelid. Next, take a purply/bluish shade and apply it along the lashes blending out a bit. To get that beautiful blend between purple and yellow, take a deep pink and really blend it all out.

To finish the rainbow look, take blue, green and yellow and apply them under the lower lash. For that, I recommend a smaller more precise brush.

Don’t forget the most exciting part- the glitter! Use some makeup glue and apply the glitter to the inner corner. Now you’re ready to party!


6. Deep Reds

This look is simply breathtaking! The eyeshadow is stunning but what’s more, is that it totally complements the colour of her eyes!

To recreate this look you need some serious deep reds. She has used the Natasha Denona Sunrise Palette which is a really pretty palette.

Use a medium reddish pink shade and cover your eyelid and the outer corner. Then take a deep red and apply it to the outer corner to really bring out that smokey eye look. Apply a shimmery pink to the centre and some sparkle to the inner corner. To finish the look, use your deep red for under the eye connecting it to the smokey lid. Blend it out so that it looks smooth without any sharp edge.


7. The Wizard of Oz

This look is probably more fitting for a Halloween look, but, I couldn’t resist including it here! It feels super fall, and it’s fun!

Creating this look will take a bit more time and experience, but don’t you think it’s worth it?!

To create this look start with orange all over the eye, take a deep green and apply it to the lid and don’t forget to create that wing to it. Over the crease line add some gold glitter and continue the gold theme under the eye, really bringing it down.

The bit that finishes this look is the straw! Personally, I’m not a fan of sticking things onto my eyebrows, but I’m just a party-pooper. Go ahead and stick the straw on your eyes with makeup glue. Please don’t use super-glue or you may be left without any brows after! To finish make a bow from rope and stick it on!


My Thoughts

I hope you have enjoyed these fall eyeshadow looks! I don’t know about you, but they have definitely gotten me in the mood of getting out my eyeshadow palettes and having some fun!

Happy Fall:)

    Wow, these are some GORGEOUS fall looks for eyeshadow! I’ve been practicing different eye looks for my costumes this year and it’s been a lot of fun to play with all the oranges and fall colors in my eye shadow palettes. My favorite on your list is the one with the multi-color rainbow glitter. I bought a container of NYX purple-ish glitter but I still haven’t opened it because I’m not sure how to apply it to make sure that it stays in place. Think I’ll give it another try after this inspo! Thanks!!

      Aw, glitter can be tricky, the easiest way to apply glitter is with an eyeshadow glue. I think NYX sell a good one!

      Thanks for stopping by:)
