Those of us who love the fall season know how quickly it can seem to pass, especially with the early chatter of Christmas and winter right after Halloween. Those of us who love fall wait for it patiently every year, anticipating that slight, cool breeze that begins to indicate the end of summer. The fall season isn’t something to be rushed, but rather, cherished and savored. It’s easy to get caught up in the haste of the holidays, but we’re not quite ready to quit ordering our pumpkin spice lattes and burning our pumpkin spice candles. Nothing captures the essence of fall quite like pumpkin spice. It’s everywhere these days, from hand sanitizer to body lotions and air fresheners for your car. Between carving pumpkins and the pumpkin pie we devour on Thanksgiving, the pumpkin is the unofficial symbol of fall. In honor of the three weeks left of this wonderful season, we thought we’d do our own fun take on pumpkin spice-inspired makeup!
There are so many ways you can show your love for all things pumpkin spice through makeup! Whether you wear a pumpkin-colored lippy or go all pumpkin with your eye shadow, there are plenty of great makeup products to make you look fabulous. We teamed up with TV Personality and Style & Beauty Expert Emily Loftiss from Loftiss Says to create a fun and simple pumpkin-spice look.
Everyone needs a versatile matte eyeshadow palette and Stila’s Eyes Are the Windows Eyeshadow Palette in Mind is the perfect one to add to your collection of makeup for fall. From daytime looks to sultry eyes for evening, you’ll love all the warm eyeshadow shades this palette comes with. It also comes with the perfect burnt orange (Perception) for a gorgeous pumpkin spice eyeshadow look.
Rather than settle for a subtle pumpkin-colored lippy, we highly suggest wearing a bold lip to liven up your entire look. A bold lip is the perfect remedy for those gloomy, fall days where you just need a bright pop of color! One way to make your pumpkin spice look a little more vibrant is with Smashbox’s Always On Liquid Lipstick in Thrill Seeker. This bright red-orange lip color will give your entire pumpkin-spice look an edge.
