Back in 2016 Instagram added the “saved” section to every profile, and the beauty game was changed forever. Gone were the days of screenshotting a notable makeup look or palette to buy, only to lose it in the mess of photos in our camera roll. Now, if we spy something we love, we can simply click “save” and add it to our private vault of inspiration images.
That being said, inspiration can
still be hard to find when you’re inundated with hundreds — no, thousands — of images daily. That’s why we decided to share the photos we’ve archived in the past month. Hopefully, it’ll get your creative juices flowing for the upcoming weeks. Ahead, check out 30 looks to try this November.
Thanks to makeup artist
Quinn Murphy, we have yet to tuck away our bold and bright lipsticks from summers past.
Want to try something softer? Make it
blotted and worn-in — like Alisha Boe.
Or keep your lips as lacquered and slick as a patent leather boot.
Then again, there’s still
nothing better than a perfect bright red. Our proof: Gigi Hadid, obviously.
Deep Wine Lips
Is it even fall without a berry lipstick to keep you warm? Nina Park chose a Sade-inspired hue for Tessa Thompson.
Want something even darker than a wine-stain red? Take a risk with a chocolate-y brown. Get the exact look with
MAC’s Film Noir.
Follow Duckie Thot’s lead and go for a vampy color that includes a slight iridescence for some added
Ditching your classic jet-black eyeliner for something colorful is the fastest way to revamp your routine without making too much noise. Case in point: this green cat-eye.
Just because it’s darker outside (damn you, daylight savings time) doesn’t mean your eyes have to follow in suit. Add a quick swipe of coral paint to your crease to offset the fact that the sun sets at 5:45 p.m. now.
Diggin’ the richer hues, like purple and blue? Copy Jennifer Lopez’s
upside-down eyeliner when you want to add a little color to a look.
Create a tiny flick of blue on your outer corners and you’re finished in minutes.
If you’re on the hunt for even more glitter, layer a chrome formula on top of a holographic shadow for a 3D effect.
Or keep your eye paint a little messy — and a lot ‘
80s — by adding glitter.
The holidays are somehow just around the corner, which means planning your best party looks is nigh. Luckily, you won’t have to ever worry about your makeup melting if you use a long-lasting paint that works any time and everywhere. Makeup artist
Danessa Myricks used her own Colorfix to get this floating crease so precise.
Remember when we suddenly became obsessed with dewy,
glowy skin? Well, we still are. Except now our eyes are on the kind of highlight that’s somewhere between Kim Chi and a Glossier ad — oh, and not just made for your cheekbones. Lily Aldridge’s shimmery complexion is the perfect example: glowy, not greasy, all over her face.
Make your glow the center of attention by bringing it a little further down on to the apple of the cheeks.
Take it from the master, makeup artist
Nam Vo, and create layers of dewy shine. (Or cheat the system and add one swipe of Becca’s Prosecco Pop to your cheeks.)
Create an all-over glow by mixing a liquid highlighter with your primer or foundation.
Don’t be afraid of thinking outside the box with your glow. Cream highlighter down the center of your nose, on your forehead, and tapped on the inner corners of your eyes is brightening — not greasy.
Smooth even more highlighter on your lips and eyelids for a diamond-bright glow.
Bonus: A radiant complexion always looks good with freckles.
We’ll always love a carefully curated palette of shadows, but when time isn’t on our side — but we’re still hoping to pack a punch with color — single eyeshadows are the way to go. Rowan Blanchard’s tangerine lids are seasonly-friendly and downright pretty.
Sticking to one shadow gives a whole new meaning to minimalism — although this color is anything but low-key.
Not recommended for beginners, but still really rad, is this glossy eye. Makeup artist
Maddie North actually used a lip palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills to get the look.
Cover the whole lid — from lashes to brows — in a purplish silver to copy Priscilla Ono’s iridescence. (Credit:
Fenty Beauty’s Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Palette, natch.)
Halloween may be over, but that doesn’t mean we’re giving up on any wickedly green shades — especially not the one on Emma Stone’s eyes.
Haven’t you heard?
Orange eyeshadow is the new “It” shade for fall.
Sticking to one shadow can be hard for us commitment-phobes. But sticking to one glitter? Not so much. Adwoa Aboah focused her frosted sparkles just on the inner corners of her eyes.
One color doesn’t equate to boring or subtle. In fact, cover your whole eye in a shimmery gunmetal and you can achieve an instant smoky eye.
Combine glitter with face gloss and you’ve got show-stopping, albeit evanescent, disco makeup.
