As the summer heat begins to slowly fade away, it’s only natural to start daydreaming about fall. While for some that might mean thinking about apple picking and pumpkin carving, we’re busy scoping out the season’s makeup tips and trends. From dramatic, sultry eyes to rosy and flushed cheeks, we’re looking to Pinterest for the best how-tos and image inspiration. Keep reading for five makeup ideas we’re currently pinning to recreate this season.

Glossy, Plumped Up Lips

Glossy-finish lip products aren’t going anywhere this fall. We love pairing the perfectly pigmented Maybelline New York Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipstick with a long-lasting lip liner, like the NYX Professional Makeup Line Loud Vegan Longwear Lip Liner. We also love the NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss in a dark, vampy shade like Lava Cake. If you’re someone who loves a glossy and plumped lip but prefers more natural makeup looks, try the L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Balm-in-Lipstick.

Siren Eyes

A sister to the classic cat eye, this subtly sultry eyeshadow look is effortlessly alluring — and seriously everywhere right now. You just need three things: a fine-line liquid eyeliner, a warm and natural eyeshadow palette (our favorite is the Urban Decay Half-Baked Mini Palette), and volumizing mascara, like the Lancôme Lash Idôle Lash-Lifting & Volumizing Mascara or the Lancôme Monsieur Big Volumizing Mascara. The end result? A striking look that will catch everyone’s eye.

Hot Pink Beauty

As you’ve probably noticed, hot pink is having a moment. This specific look focuses on making your eyes pop with the help of hot pink shadows and voluminous lashes, complemented by fresh and dewy skin. Pro tip? When applying highly pigmented eyeshadows, a trustworthy concealer will be your under-eyes’ best friend. Try one of our favorites, the Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer.

Rosy Blush

As temperatures drop, it’s only natural to lean into flushed rosy cheeks. The simple look is a staple for those who love a glowy no-makeup-makeup aesthetic and can easily be achieved by generously applying your favorite warm blush. Just be sure to prime your face (the NYX Professional Makeup Marshmellow Primer is our current favorite) and balance your skin tone with a hydrating tinted serum — try the L’Oréal Paris True Match Nude Hyaluronic Tinted Serum — to keep your skin looking fresh and dewy under your flush.

Smudged, Smoky Eyeliner

Indie Sleaze eye makeup is back. Dark shadows and smudged liner creates an effortlessly cool and edgy look that will pair perfectly with the fall season. Luckily the technique is straightforward and customizable — just apply a waterproof eyeliner, like the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliner Pencil, and buff it out until you’ve reached the level of smudge that you like.

Face Gems

Add some sparkle to your fall makeup routine with face gems. Reminiscent of something you’d see at a music festival, party or other celebration, this trend is a fun way to try something that’s maybe a little out of your comfort zone. Whether you’re adding a couple of rhinestones to subtly accentuate your eyes or doing a full design for a night out, the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Setting Spray can help keep everything in place as you dance the night away.
