Seek out your stunning for the season with these five fall beauty trends.

You don’t need to be a schoolgirl to associate fall with fresh starts and there’s no better way to begin this magical season than with some chic additions to your makeup bag. Cosmetic companies flood the market with a dizzying array of innovative colors and products that make it hard to know what will work. We’ve pared it down for you here with some universally-flattering new trends:

Airy mousse

A whipped foundation that leaves a powdery veil is the perfect canvas for fall colors. Maybelline Matte Mousse blends easily and keeps the t-zone glare-free. Best of all is that its new formula covers and even outs that fading tan, which makes you look like you have perfect skin. Why not put your best face forward for nature's most colorful time of year? Get from: Rite-Aid.

Oxblood lips

If you’re old enough to remember Mom dabbing Mercurochrome on your cuts and scrapes, then you know what oxblood looks like. A rich melancholy red with brown undertones that is surprisingly wearable in creamy formulations. Think red with a touch of roasted chestnut that mirrors the season’s glorious landscape. Try YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in Grenat Satisfaction. Get from: Nordstrom.

Petal pushing

With rich lips, cheeks need to be as natural as possible. L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Blush adapts to suit every skin tone. What you’ll get is rose petal soft color so that you can easily go big on the rest. Get from: CVS.


Eyes take on a molten metal look this fall with palettes of amplified colors in high-definition chromatics. Look for these frosted shadows in combination compacts so that you can create brilliant eye looks with impact. Estée Lauder Pure Color Instant Intense Eye Shadow Trios are powders that melt onto eyelids like liquid and will give that smoldering eye look that was all over Fashion Week runways. Fall evenings with its crisp air call for extreme eyes. Get from: Macy's.

Lasting liner

To go with your mystical fall eye shadows, you need liners that speak for themselves. Go with a wider line that stands out. Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks are as luxurious as their name. They are firm but go on like powder and come in beautiful fall-crisp colors like “Sterling” and “Plum”. The Harvest Moon will be the only thing brighter than your eyes.

Inky nails

The deep autumn air calls for more dramatic nails. Keep them short and they'll be able to handle some of the new rich push-the-envelope nail colors. Essie in “Wicked” won't intimidate and yet, it will look, well...wicked! Get from: Ulta

The fall look in make-up can be a bit more spectacular and atmospheric but with a balance. Choose saturated colors and frosts that reflect the burnished landscape and melodramatic nights of nature's most lyrical season.
