Metallic eyes are always on trend during this time of year, but for now, let’s focus on silver. Shades like Urban Decay’s “Space Cowboy” were popular during the summer months, which makes it inevitable that we’re ready for something a little moodier and darker for the fall season. That’s where the silver smokey eye comes in. It’s the perfect way to achieve a sultry and glamorous look for nights out.

For highlighting your eyes, a soft, muted glam makeup look is the best way to go. The main objective is to draw attention to the eyes, so it is important to keep the skin, lips, and cheeks muted and monochromatic.

Brown-red lips are a nod to the cool-girl style of the ’90s, and they’re also perfect for autumn. Brown-red lipstick complements most skin tones, but we recommend keeping the rest of your makeup look minimal to pull off the shade. Pair brown-red lips with a soft smokey eye or a simple slick of eyeliner to ensure your lips remain the centre of attention.
