If you’re looking to make a statement with your makeup this fall, you’re in luck — with the 2022 fall season on the horizon, eyeshadow trends are more dramatic than ever. Eye makeup is more versatile than ever before — you can use everything from liquid eyeliner to colored mascara to achieve eye-catching looks that are subtle or bold, and wearable day or night. Here are ten of the hottest eye shadow trends of fall 2022 so far.
1) Holographic Shimmers
Holographic shimmers are the perfect way to make your eyes stand out. These shimmers are usually in the form of a cream or liquid, which allows you to apply them easily with an eyeliner brush. This trend is great for people who want to wear a bolder look and don’t want their eyeshadows to be too dramatic.
2) Neon Reds
Neon reds will be a hot trend this season, so put on your favorite lipstick and get ready to show off those pouty lips. This hue is perfect for someone who wants to make a statement with their look. If you’re feeling daring, try wearing it as eyeliner or as blush. Just make sure not to go overboard and that you’re confident enough to rock the bold color!
3) Darker Browns with Gold Highlights
Have you been in the market for a new fall eyeshadow palette? Whether you’re looking for something to spice up your workday makeup or to give your night-out look an extra boost, one of these five options will surely do the trick.
The first option is from Morphe, which offers a range of colors from natural neutrals to bolder hues that’ll easily take your eye look from day-to-night.
4) Chunky Metal Pieces
The latest trend in eyeshadows is chunky metallic pieces. This style pairs well with a dark lip or smokey eye for a dramatic evening look. If you’re feeling more daytime appropriate, try pairing this trend with a natural makeup look to add some sparkle to your everyday life.
5) Silvery Nudes
Nude eyeshadows are one of the most popular trend for every season, and there are always new ways to mix up your palette. This fall, silvery nudes will be a hot trend. The light silver hue will make your eyes pop in any setting. To create this look, you can use a light brown shadow as a base and then layer the lighter shade on top of it with a fluffy brush.
6) Feathered Lashes
Feathered lashes are the perfect way to balance out a dramatic eye for a night out. This trend is perfect for those of us who love to wear minimal makeup during the day but still want something special at night. Feathered lashes can be achieved by using mascara that has thick bristles, or if you’re feeling adventurous, you can use eyelash extensions.
7) Statement Brows
Statement brows are the newest trend that has been taking over Instagram. They’re perfect for bringing out your eyes and making a statement. The key is to find the right color that compliments your eye color. Start by applying a dark shadow just above your natural eyebrow line with an angled brush, then blend it in with short strokes going upwards and outwards. Don’t worry about filling in all of your brows, just apply enough to give them more depth and make them stand out.
8) Matte Smoky Eyes
If you love a dramatic eye look, you’re in luck. This season’s smoky matte eyes are full of rich pigments and intense hues that will leave a lasting impression on all your friends. And the best part? These shadows go with any outfit or occasion. From day to night, these neutrals never go out of style!
9) Dramatic Glitter Lids
Glittery eyeshadows were a huge trend in the 1990s, and they’re back again! Glittery eyeshadows are perfect for more formal occasions, or anytime you want your makeup to really stand out. To get this look, all you need is a metallic or glitter-based eye shadow to layer over your base color. For example, if you use a dark purple as your base and add silver glitter on top of it, the effect will be dramatic and glamorous.
10) Boldly Colored Brows
Boldly colored brows are all the rage this fall. The most popular colors seem to be a dark purple or red, but that doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with different shades like blues and greens. For example, this look below is perfect for someone who’s feeling really adventurous:
1) Apply an eyeshadow primer to your eyebrows to make sure they’re evenly coated before applying eyeshadows.
2) Take some time to figure out which direction you want your brows to go in.
3) Use light eyeshadow from the same color family as your hair color at the front of your brow line and gradually work it towards darker colors on the back of your head.
4) Finish by brushing some hairspray over them for extra staying power!
