The season’s hottest shades for eyes and lips

Discover the best ways to wear radiant lavender, vibrant red-orange and warm chocolate brown this fall.

Outside your door, nature’s changing colours are having a moment. Bring that energy to your makeup bag, too, for an equally stunning transformation. Whether you choose to dabble in a stunning new eye shadow, a bold lip colour or a rich, smoky liner, here are three must-try makeup trends for fall.

Digital lavender
Upload the season’s biggest makeup shakeup with lavender eyeshadow that’s vibrant and luminous. For a mesmerizing multi-dimensional finish, try Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Eyeshadow Palette in “Reflets D’Amethyste.” Use the palest colour as a base on lids, then apply the mid-tone shade along the crease. The darkest tone can be used as a soft liner along the lashes. A final dusting of shimmering lilac on the centre of the lids and in the inner corners unleashes a brightening effect.
Pair with: an equally radiant complexion. Press a few drops of Guerlain Abeille Royale Advanced Youth Watery Oil onto your face after cleansing, then dab a little extra along cheekbones after your makeup is done, for mega-watt radiance.

Red-orange pout
Fall’s go-to red lip has gotten a makeover. Choose an orange-based scarlet, such as Yves Saint Laurent Slim Velvet Radical in “True Chilli,” for a modern take on the signature bold lip. Precision is everything here, and the sharp angles of this square-shaped lipstick bullet can be a handy tool. Use the flat end to blend colour over lips, then utilize the edge of the tip to refine your cupid’s bow and around the lip line.
Pair with: enhanced lashes. Try Benefit They're Real! Magnet Extreme Lengthening Mascara, a long-lasting formula that uses magnetic technology to make lashes look 40% longer (thanks, science!). Allow a few seconds of drying time between coats to take your results to the next level.

Smoky liner
Taking a cue from fall’s moody vibe, a smoky halo is the latest way to amp up your gaze. You don’t need to be a makeup maestro — one eyeliner and a few application tricks is all you need. Choose Lise Watier Intense Waterproof Eyeliner in “Chocolat Intense.” Why brown, and not black? Glad you asked! A rich cocoa offers just as much depth without being harsh, so you’ll get that soft, hazy effect. Start by tightlining, the simple pro technique of tracing the inner rim of lash lines. You’ll be floored at how it makes your eyes instantly pop. Then, draw your liner along the top and bottom lashes and blend using a small makeup brush for that all-important blurred finish.
Pair with: full, natural-looking brows. Use Too Faced Super Fine Brow Detailer Pencil to mimic the look of hairs and fill in any sparse areas, for perfectly defined arches.
