Just like every other season, autumn comes with its own scents, looks, and colors. You step outside, take in the cool, crisp air, and admire the leaves beautifully changing colors on the trees. The deep reds, oranges, and browns are so gorgeous that wearing them on our eyes is what any makeup lover needs during this time of the year.
What’s more enchanting than smoking out your eyes with rich shades of reds or deep tones of browns? The colors of autumn are inviting and wearing any of its shades will have you blending right into the atmosphere; that’s why we need them all.
Cosmetic brands almost never let the fall season slip away so easily. By taking advantage of the gorgeous season, brands turn the fall colors into shadows and complement these colors with even more charming shades, creating the perfect palette to wear throughout the coming months. There are tons of palettes to choose from, but we picked out our top five favorites for you to consider.
