Featuring matte lip colorsburgundy mascara, and more, these are the 22 fall makeup looks (including some stunning fall eyeshadow looks) you’ll want to add into your fall beauty repertoire.

FALL MAKEUP LOOK #1: ALL-OVER BURGUNDY

If you haven’t heard, burgundy is totally on-trend. From interior design to the runway—we’ve seen this color popping up just about everywhere. Of course, there’s no better time of year to rock this gorgeous color than fall!

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation

L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Deep Burgundy

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick in 70% Yum

STEP #1: APPLY FOUNDATION

Before incorporating any burgundy hues into your makeup look, you want to create a flawless base. Apply your foundation for matte coverage that lasts all day (and night).

STEP #2: ADD SOME COLOR

Of course, you need to add some color to your face! Take blush that's a bit darker than your go-to and apply it to the contours of your cheeks, bringing it up over your cheekbones. This will give you an instant fall flush.

STEP #3: GRAB YOUR EYESHADOW

When it comes to eyeshadow, using an eyeshadow palette always makes things a little easier, since it removes the guesswork of choosing complementary shades. First, apply the pink shade from your palette to your eyelid. Then, apply a light brown shade to the crease. Next, deepen the crease by applying a darker brown shade to the outer “V” of your eye. Lastly, apply the lightest shade to the inner corner as your highlight.

STEP #4: COAT YOUR LASHES

Ready to amp up your lashes? Grab your burgundy mascara and apply a few coats for instant color and bold volume.

STEP #5: COLOR YOUR LIPS

You can’t forget lipstick! This lip color serves as the center of the look thanks to its rich burgundy color—not to mention its delicious, chocolatey scent.

FALL MAKEUP LOOK #2: BURNT ORANGE EYES

Rust orange is one of the biggest colors for fall—and with good reason. Color your lids with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Sunset Seine for a fall eyeshadow look that resembles the crispy, just fallen leaves we love so much about the season.

FALL MAKEUP LOOK #3: PURPLE POUT

Looking to try a new lip color? Look no further than a purple hue, which is a bold, trendy lip shade for fall. Paint your pout with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Les Macarons Scented Liquid Lipstick in Blackcurrant Crush or L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Enjoy to give the trend a try.

FALL MAKEUP LOOK #20: ORANGE LIPSTICK

We covered orange tones when it comes to your eye and face makeup, but what about your lips? Turns out, orange lipstick happens to be all the rage for fall as well.

FALL MAKEUP LOOK #21: MUSTARD YELLOW LIDS

FALL MAKEUP LOOK #22: BRICK RED LIPS

Rather than painting your pout in a burgundy hue, if that’s not your style, opt for a subtler brick red color like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Cowboy. This red-meets-brown color screams fall. Pair it with a smoky eye or make it the center of your everyday makeup look.
