One of the best things about the transition from summer to fall in the beauty world is the swath of new colors, tones, and textures that come along with it.
Summer’s shimmery neutrals and pops of color make way for fall’s intensely rich hues in deeper shades. But deciding which new eyeshadow is right for you is not quite as straightforward.
“As everyone is wearing face masks right now, makeup should be all about making your eyes look bigger, brighter, and more mesmerizing, as well as wearing shades that make you feel your most beautiful,” says Sofia Schwarzkopf-Tilbury, celebrity makeup artist and product and content creator at Charlotte Tilbury Beauty. “I think we’re going to be seeing eyeshadows to make your eye color pop, with universally-flattering shades of pink, berry-red, and warm rust.”
Luckily, this year’s new eyeshadow palette launches are bolder, prettier, and a more essential part of our beauty routine than ever before.
Here, we've rounded up the dreamiest new eyeshadow palette color combinations for fall that you'll want to add to your repertoire ASAP.
