10 Maximalist Makeup Looks to Recreate This FallOctober 06, 2022
Fall is officially here, and it's time to start dreaming up some seasonal makeup looks. If you're in a creative rut — or just seeking inspo, you're in for a treat: So many celebrities, makeup artists and beauty influencers have flooded Instagram with some head-turn-worthy autumnal glam. From graphic eyeliner and foiled eyeshadow to rhinestone-studded eyeliner and negative space eyeshadow, there's no shortage of bold ideas for makeup maximalists to screenshot and recreate ASAP.
Ahead, we've rounded up ten of the best fall makeup looks from the 'gram — and we think you should try your hand at them stat.
The Perfect Fall Foil
Love glitter and a warm-toned lippie? Say no more and try your hand at this soft glam look that was born to be rocked this fall. One of the key products you’ll need is glittery eyeshadow, one of our favorites of which is the Urban Decay 24/7 Moondust Eyeshadow in Lithium.
Gone GreenIf you’re looking to try bold pops of color for fall, why not try green? We love how this look highlights the creator’s eyes, thanks to the statement falsies and inner corner eyeliner. Not to mention her lippie is perfect (it’s the Urban Decay Vice Plumping Shine Balm in Runyon).
Autumnal Hues — With a TwistThis autumn makeup look is highly customizable in that you can swap out the unexpected pop of color on the lid with any bold hue of your choosing. You’ll need to stick with the brown lip and siren eye to maintain a similar look overall — and don’t forget a good pair of falsies à la the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Lash! Longwear False Lash System.
Floating EyelinerNot to be dramatic, but this statement eye look is everything — and it’s extremely easy to recreate at home. Oh, and if the light blue liner isn’t your vibe, you can swap it out with any color you have on hand — maybe berry or orange for fall? We love the Maybelline New York TattooStudio Limited-Edition Sharpenable Gel Pencil in Orange Flash.
Crystal-Studded EyelinerWhether you recreate this look to a tee, or incorporate face gems into your eye makeup look more moderately, you’ll need to snap a selfie for the ‘gram. Here, the gems are the star of the show, but to complete the look, you’ll need brown lip liner, lip gloss, and a coat of mascara. (You can’t go wrong with the Lancôme Le 8 Hypnôse, a TikTok favorite.)
A Bold Berry EyeThis understated eyeliner look is perfect for maximalists who want all of the attention on their eyes. This creator used a makeup crayon to get the look, but you can also achieve it with eyeshadow, like the berry hue from the Lancôme Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Fusion.
If you want to look like a literal work of art, take notes from celebrity makeup artist Raoúl Alejandre’s triple-wing eyeliner and equally bold red lip. Pictured here is the Valentino Rosso Lipstick in the shade 22A called Ambra Matte.
Negative Space Graphic Eyes
If you’re not feeling the autumnal hues, consider trying a graphic eyeliner look, like this epically cool negative space design. The L'Oréal Paris Grip Precision Felt Eyeliner will help you perfect it — and it also comes in other shades if you want to embrace some color.
Calling all Halloween girlies: This vampy glam has your name written all over it. You’ll need red and black eyeshadow, orange-coral blush (we love the Maybelline Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush in Coral Ember 30) and a neutral lippie to cop the look.
We love this look for countless reasons, one being that you can use whatever shimmer eye pigment of your choice to fit your vision. Team it with a clear shade of gloss and you’re good to go. We think the R.E.M. Beauty Midnight Shadows Lustrous Liquid Eyeshadow in Telescope would look so good.
