Where but Instagram can you go to find the most inspiring makeup looks in the world? It’s a hotbed of endless ideas for those of us who can’t get enough of electrifying color combos, innovative looks and fierce new trends.
As we inch ever closer to fall, it’s time to prep the makeup bag with a few new additions. Here are six best beauty looks to inspire your shopping.
Best Beauty Looks Now
1. The autumnal eye
@monaaa.c coats her lids in a festive mélange of seasonal hues that spell perfection. Warm bronze, bright gold, and radiant berry play together in perfect harmony. Then, a pop of pearlescent color radiates on the browbone and wakes up the inner corners of the eyes. It’s the ultimate fall-worthy look!
2. The matte lip
You know you can never resist a great matte lip when the weather cools down. Pumpkin season also calls for a return of all things rich and dramatic, which in turn means shades like the one @malvina_isfan shows off here are well worth your attention. Coupled with bold lashes and a wash of metallic shadow, the look is TDF.
3. The soft bronze
We may be ready to bid summer farewell, but there are still a few weeks to go. With that in mind, take a glance at @doralysbritto, who creates a beautiful, natural, sun-kissed glow that looks positively lit from within. The trick here: don’t pile it on in layers — keep it simple for the most effortlessly glamorous finish.
4. The pink touch
Pretty in pink makeup is always irresistible, especially when it’s as beautifully defined as on this look created by @sofiaschwarzkopftilbury. A fresh rosy gloss, rose gold lids and soft pink cheeks complement the model’s glowing skin perfectly. It’s an elevated take on everyday chic, perfect for date night or a special event.
5. The vibrant pop
A shock of color is the best way to shake things up at any
time of the year. This look from @fredriktambromakeup
captures a certain innocence gone wild. The rest of the look is pure and
natural, but the pop of vibrant blue along the lower lash line creates an
electrifying finish that is absolutely perfect because it’s so unexpected.
6. The lush lashes
A few layers of mascara — and maybe a pair of falsies, if you’re so inclined — are all that you need to transform your lashes into wow-making, cover-worthy accents. For your thickest lashes, wiggle the mascara wand from root to end and brush outward at the temples to create a rich, dramatic look.
