5 Matte Makeup Looks to Try This Fall

Enhance your beauty game with fall’s rich matte hues.

SEEING RED
Turn heads with a smouldering scarlet gaze. Apply a bright red shadow like Nars’ Fatale to lids, underneath the eye, and atop lashes for maximum monochromatic impact.

GOLDEN GIRL
Swap your go-to nude with a warm mustard shade like Essie’s Fall for NYC, and top it off with the Matte About You top coat for shine-free perfection.

AT FIRST BLUSH
Do away with summer’s shimmer and transition your cheeks to fall with a pigmented matte pink blush. Sweep a rosy shade like Shiseido’s Minimalist WhippedPowder Blush in Sonoya along cheekbones while keeping the rest of your makeup minimal to accentuate a romantic flush.

FEMME FATALE
A classic red lip is always in season. This fall, opt for a sleek matte finish to elevate this beauty staple—Armani Beauty Rouge d’Armani Matte in Four Hundred is the perfect shade of Old Hollywood–glamour rouge.

BLUE SMOKE
Shake up the traditional smoky eye with an essential autumn hue—navy. For the ultimate midnight-blue palette, try Chanel’s Les 4 Ombres in Quiet Revolution, pairing with Chanel Stylo Ombre et Contour in Contour Graphique to give eyes a defined, dramatic look.
