Autumn is all about the beautiful colours on display as the seasons change. It represents the transition from the neon brights of summer, to the cooler tones of winter. Think milky corals, smoky greys and earth-toned hues. Most palettes contain matte and shimmery finishes to brighten up these moody seasonal looks. Here are a few of our favourites.
NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette Warm
This palette has the most romantic autumn colours in warm, neutral tones, and we’re just in love with its burnt oranges, nutty browns and pale pinks. Plus, the added highlighter colour allows you to sneak in some shimmer on cooler days. If you’re lucky enough to have blue or green eyes, these shades are an ideal backdrop.
Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyeshadow In Coral Drama
Just as the name suggests, this quad palette promises to inject some sparkle, lightening up your autumn mood. The colours consist of quiet corals, copper browns and a dusty beige. Expect this palette’s light-reflecting particles to add a glossy finish that does double-duty as a highlighter. Blue grey eyes? This one’s for you.
Urban Decay Naked Smoky
It’s pretty much an all-in-one palette with every light and dark colour you’ll need, from dimmed-down browns and greys, to bright peach and a deep plum. The 12 shades come in shimmery and matte finishes along with a blending brush to create a smoky eye. These rich hues best complement hazel and dark brown eyes.
L’Oréal Colour Riche® Pocket Palette Eye Shadow In Haute Hazel
Expect rich, earthy tones of green, bronze and one deep blue-grey. The three shimmery shades and one matte colour stunningly match the changing colours of nature that surround you. It’s conveniently pocket-sized and will complement hazel eyes perfectly.
