I don’t know how I managed to come up with 58 different color combinations for autumn, but I did… I got carried away, obviously! ? I split them into two posts so that each post is a little more digestible. Happy fall!

About This Series

Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease for how I would wear them.

You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!

Overwhelmed by all the sumptuous fall shade combos! I saved a BUNCH.
Now if our weather would please cooperate and feel more autumnal….I’m so sick and tired of triple digit temps!

I love it when you do these groupings and have such a wide variety from inexpensive to incredibly, indie to mass availability. It’s super nice. Aaand I hadn’t thought about my Smoke Sessions as being a fall palette (silly me) from your Pt2.

Haha! I think that is why I ended up with 58 — now that I have more indie single ranges, I wanted to make sure to include some from the recent additions… but I also wanted to pull in from past (but still “present” in terms of availability) palettes that readers may already have. Since it’s less about “here are 12 unique combos” but rather showing multiple ways to get the “fall looks” with different products/brands/palettes.
