The awful humidity that comes with the otherwise wondrousness of summer has finally dissipated. Your hair has returned to its normal volume, your makeup is actually still on your face at the end of the day, and it's socially acceptable to start prepping for the holidays. But what does this all mean? It's time to try out the season's newest beauty trends. And where better to get fall makeup inspiration than from your favorite Insta-celebrities?
You may associate a colder season with vampy eyeshadow and moody nail colors. But this season, celebrities are sporting brighter, more understated looks, even going a little more low-key with their glam than you might expect. Don't be mistaken, your favorite stars are still looking majorly hot, but they're sending a reminder that oftentimes less is more. Fret not, you can still rock that smoky eye palette you maybe spent a little too much money on. Just hold onto your lighter lip shades, too. And don't be shy with your highlighter, not that you would. It may finally be sweater weather, but your face can still be lit like the summer sky.
Grab your pumpkin spice latte, throw on your favorite flannel, and scroll down below to check out fall's most on-fleek beauty looks.
Rihanna's bronze eye and highlighted cheeks are the perfect way to ease into the new season. Her look is all about working what your mama gave you and elevating it, ever so slightly.
Try RiRi's own Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Galaxy Eye Shadow Palette ($59; sephora.com) to copy her sultry eyes.
It's Wine O'Clock
Rihanna isn't the only celeb rocking the bronze trend this fall. Gabrielle Union's wine-colored metallic look is goals. Maybe she's dipping into the Morphe Bronzed Mocha Eyeshadow Palette ($18; ulta.com)? And that amazing hair — I'm dead.
Craving This Look
Chrissy Teigen is the queen of social media, IMHO, and now she is dominating sun-kissed fall beauty. Pink cheeks like Teigen's will boost any cold weather blues, so snatch up her BECCA X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette ($46; sephora.com).
Shine Bright Like An... Amethyst
Selena Gomez, a long-time client of makeup artist to the stars Hung Vanngo, is schooling everyone on how to do purple eyeshadow without reverting back to any junior high faux pas. Her smoldering, steely purple eye is paired with a neutral lip and a rosy cheek. Vanngo's strategy: Highlight one asset at time in order to keep things bright.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eye Shadow Palette in Frivoluxe ($49; marcjacobsbeauty.com) provides a range of purple shadows to play with.
The Other Kind Of Cat Lady
Take a note from Kendall Jenner's book and try low-key glam. Jenner is sporting the tiniest cat eye known to womankind, and little else, and it's perfect. Get the vibe with Estee Edit's The Blackest Liner ($11; esteelauder.com), a chunky liquid pen.
Flick On Fleek
Nicki Minaj is anything but subtle, but the queen of rap knows how to do a vampy look that her over 80 million followers can (and should) copy. Score the perfect mega-liner accoutrement, nude lips, with the Nicki Minaj x MAC Cosmetics Lipstick In Nicki's Nude ($18; maccosmetics.com).
'Cause I'm So Into This Look
Ariana Grande is serving up a Venti dose of perfection. Her no-makeup makeup look is everything. Did she wake up like that? Probably so, but with a touch of matte neutral lipstick like NYX Lip Lingerie ($6; nyxcosmetics.com).
Krushing It With Klossy
If you're more into a bold lip, Karlie Kloss has you covered. Kloss skipped mascara on her lower lashes to really drive her bold pout home. And those rosy cheeks are out of control amazing. L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints in Velvet Pout ($10; ulta.com) will help you emulate the just-sucked-on-an-exotic-berry style.
Star Light, Star Bright
Blogger Huda Kattan knows that a bold lip doesn't have to mean a dark look. Her eyes are equally bright and entrancing. Try out her own Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lip in Heartbreaker ($20; sephora.com) to melt some hearts yourself.
It's impossible to talk about bold lips without the lip kit queen herself, miss Kylie Jenner. Jenner's Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Lipstick in Goals ($16; kyliecosmetics.com) is fierce, so she smartly used brighter products elsewhere.
A Pretty Pout
As always, Zendaya is cool girl chic. Her bright red lip, which might be the work of CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Lip Color In Your Classic Red ($8; amazon.com), is flawless. If you don't have a girl crush on her, then I can't help you.
