Top 10 Fall Makeup Looks of 2021

Top 10 Makeup Trends Fall 2021

Hey Beauties! As we get closer to the time of pumpkin spice and chilly nights, we’re sure you’re wondering what new makeup trends have been all over the runway, magazines, and Instagram. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of all the best upcoming autumn makeup looks, TikTok makeup trends, and every other runway look that will hit the fashion industry this fall season. We’ve included everything from natural makeup looks with dewy skin and light eye makeup to bold makeup with daring lip colors and bright eye makeup looks, so the fall makeup ideas are literally endless! We know you want to stay on top of the makeup game, and we’re here to help you do that. Solidify your image as a makeup guru with these swoon-worthy trends that will make you fall in love with makeup all over again!

1. Soap Brows

The first big look on our trend radar is the ever-popular soap brows. Yes, we know they’ve been in style for a hot minute, BUT the eyebrow game is changing. Well, at least here at OFRA it is! You heard that right! Our brand new “Don’t Play Eyebrow Gel” is the best eyebrow makeup, and it isn’t even really makeup! It’s a clear gel that will give you the natural fluffy eyebrows of your dreams, and the best part is that just like with soap brows, you’ll be able to play all day with perfect eyebrows. If you don’t know how to do soap brows, have no fear! We’ve made a soap brows tutorial just for you!

2. Kitten Eyes

Look #2 has a very close relationship with the classic eyeliner look that we all know and love, the Cat Eye. Everyone loves a good winged eyeliner look, and the Cat Eye is one of the best, especially if you’re going for a dramatic look, but sometimes, we all want something a little more subtle. That’s where the Kitten Eye comes in! Kitten Eyes are just a less dramatic and softer version of the Cat Eye. Kitten eyeliner is the best eyeliner when it is worn with natural tones and pinkish hues to accentuate the softness of the eyes. To achieve this simple, but beautiful look all you need is an eyeshadow palette with soft shades and the best liquid eyeliner you can find, and remember, with this look, less is more!
It’s a new makeup look, but it’s gaining popularity quickly; we’ve already started to see it pop up on Instagram on celebs like Whitney Peak, who plays Zoya Lott on HBO’s new Gossip Girl reboot, and Sydney Sweeney who has starred in hit shows such as The Handmaid's Tale, Euphoria, and The White Lotus. These ladies are a couple of the hottest upcoming and coming actresses, so keeping up with their style will be well worth it! 

3. Bold Lips

Bold lipstick is officially back in, and when we say bold, we mean it! With this look, red lipstick may be your first thought, and while it is a great one, you do have other options as well. Shades of purple and berry tones are coming in hot this fall season, so we recommend stepping out of your comfort zone. Try a lip shade with a purple tone, like our matte liquid lipstick in “Unzipped,” to start small, or if you’re ready to go all out, try a darker cranberry color, like our Milan” liquid lipstick. These are just two shades that will give your look the bold edge of this trend, but the possibilities are endless no matter if you prefer matte lipstick or lipstick with a satin finish. If you’re feeling especially bold, give purple lipstick a shot, or you could even try our black liquid lipstick!

4. Intense Black Eyeliner

This fourth look is a huge throwback! Don’t fret millennials; we have makeup tutorials now! That means, doing an all black, intense look like this won’t look like it did in 2013. Trust us when we say to embrace the eyeliner! Break out your black eyeliner pencils and your black gel eyeliner; this is gonna be fun! We can still have our nice winged eyeliner with this look, but we’re going to add a little spice. What was once considered goth eyeliner is now E-girl eyeliner, and it’s definitely trending! It’s gonna be so big that we’re even bringing back waterline eyeliner. To complete the edgy eyeliner look, keep your face natural but sculpted. We recommend a neutral / nude lipstick or even a soft lip gloss, and a lighter shade of blush. Put all that together, and voila! We’ve got the perfect makeup look that the 2013 version of you would certainly envy! We know these eyeliner styles aren’t for everyone, but if you change your mind and decide to join the intense eyeliner movement, we’ll be here for you every step of the way!

5. Full Lashes

Before you ask, yes, we know that full lashes are ALWAYS in, but this time we want long and voluminous lashes without having to worry about fake lashes or lash extensions. You may think that the full lash look can be hard to achieve without falsies, but we’re here to let you know it's not; all you have to do is find the mascara that will give you the eyelash lift you need! Before you apply, be sure to use an eyelash curler to plump up and lengthen your lashes. The best mascara will lengthen your lashes while also giving them volume! Find the perfect mascara for you and your lashes, then make sure to apply 2-3 coats to achieve the fluffy, full lashes of your dreams!

6. Dewy Skin

Dewy skin is still in! Well, of course it is; it’s beautiful! It’s been a popular look all year, and it’s only going to get bigger, so we’re here to tell you the best way to get that glow! Some may think that glowing skin is all about the highlighter, but that’s not entirely true. Having the best highlighter makeup and a quality highlighter makeup brush is SUPER important, but there are some other factors of your routine that you have to keep in mind, and that starts with your skin care routine.
Moisturized and hydrated are two of the most important words in the cosmetic language because if your skin is well taken care of, you’ll have the perfect canvas to perfect your makeup look! If you’re going for the glowing, dewy makeup look, your skin needs to be hydrated to stay soft and supple, so we highly recommend finding a great, non-drying face wash as well as the best face moisturizer you can find! Skin hydration is key! Once you have your canvas prepped, start with a quality face primer, follow up with some smoothing foundation makeup, add some light blush, then highlight! If you want your makeup to give you the perfect dewy shine, the last step is to spritz setting spray on your face to emphasize your luminous glow. 

7. Graphic Eyeliner

 Graphic eyeliner will never NOT look amazing, but there will be a bit of a twist on this fav in the upcoming seasons. It won’t just be exaggerated black eyeliner or adding some liner in your crease; it’s going to be so much more. There’s going to be color.
Yep, you read that right! One of the biggest upcoming trends is bright and colorful eyeliner. Don’t worry, you can still do all your favorite eyeliner looks, like winged eyeliner, E-girl eyeliner, or whatever eyeliner style you love most. The only difference is you’ll be using colored eyeliner.
What color? Well, any color you want! Blue eyeliner works, but so does red eyeliner; the possibilities are endless. You can even use white eyeliner, especially if you couple it with navy eyeliner or a dark purple eyeliner! That would be stunning, especially if it is paired with complementary highlighter makeup!
So, are you into these graphic eyeliner looks? Let us know if you’re going to jump on this new eyeliner trend!

8. Color Block Eyeshadow

Bright eyeshadow trends have come and gone, but we predict that this one is here to stay! We’re loving the simplicity of these eyeshadow looks! The best part is, you can use any color you want, but the most popular products have been blue eyeshadow, pink eyeshadow, purple eyeshadow, and even orange eyeshadow. This fall, berry shades are SO in, so you’ll look fab if you use any shade in that family! Since you’ll be so bright up top, we recommend a neutral or peachy lip! All you need to get started on this look are some great eyeshadow brushes, primer, and a colorful eyeshadow palette! We think the best eyeshadow palette for the job is our Glitch Baked Eyeshadow Palette if you prefer a shimmery look or our Bright Addiction Pro Palette if matte eyeshadow is your fav. Either way, you’ll be the trendsetter in every room you enter!

9. Lavender Lids

We just talked about color block eyeshadow, but there is one color in particular that is ALL the rage, and that color is lavender. Like we said before, any color in the “berry family” is on-trend right now, but out of all the purples in the world, lavender is everyones fav!
Celebs like Shay Mitchell and Dove Cameron are ALL in on this look too! This color is unexpected, but we’re here for it! Not only are celebs loving this look, but this shade has been dominating the Autumn / Winter runways too!
Since it’s such an unexpected look, it may be hard to find the perfect lavender eyeshadow, but lucky for you, we have the perfect eyeshadow palette for the job! Our Galaxy Signature Palette will have you serving bright, bold looks all year long! you can even combine this lovely lavender trend with the final fall makeup look of 2021 to give you a "berry edgy" look! Don't miss out on this popular makeup trend. When you rock it, everyone will know that you were born to be a beauty guru!
Are you ready to try out this lavender makeup look? We sure are!

10. Smokey Eye

So smokey eyes haven’t been the name of the game lately, but they are on their way back in, baby! Bold and dramatic eyes have been seen everywhere from runways, to celebrities, to influencers, like Addison Rae, who always goes glam with her eyeshadow. We’re excited to say that the age-old smokey eye is officially back in, but not all smokey eye makeup looks are equal. Like we’ve been saying purple is the queen of makeup right now, and that’s not likely to change! We recommend sticking to colors within the violet family or pairing your purple eyeshadow with some metallic eyeshadow or even some pastel pink shades to get a super fun and retro look! You can also play around with matte and shimmer shadow, but if you’re looking for the best of both worlds, our Symphony Signature Palette will give you everything you need to stand out from the crowd! As for lipstick, you can go neutral or stay within the color palette you’re already working with by using a lighter shade of lipstick with a hint of purple undertones, like our fan favorite Liquid Lipstick, Laguna Beach. If you follow these tips you’ll have no problem rocking the fall trends of 2021!
