There are still a few weeks of summer to joyfully sweat through, but the chill in the air this morning reminded us that soon, we’ll be trading in our bikinis and flatforms for leather jackets and cozy hats. And that annual shift applies to our beauty looks, too: From brights to moodier hues, our makeup inevitably reflects the changing temps. This fall, there are a bunch of new trends we’re really excited about, from a berry lip so dark it’s almost black to pretty washes of apricot sheen.

Berry lipstick comes back every fall as reliably as the changing of the leaves, but this time around, it’s way darker—so dark it’s almost black. So, we’re calling this color “blackberry.” Keep the rest of your makeup as raw and fresh as possible, and don’t worry about your skin being shiny, too. In fact, the glowier your complexion, the more modern this vampy lip will feel.

Desert-inspired Bohemian vibes might be traditionally reserved for summer, but this fall, the makeup is holding onto that bronzed, windswept thing a little longer. This time around, though, there’s a futuristic feeling, like you’re a model on a sandy, alien planet. Because this is totally how you’d do your face for that situation, right?

Graphic-liner looks pretty much always show up on the runways, but this is the first season in a while that people will actually be taking the looks from the shows to the streets. Try creating a chunkier version of your go-to cat eye to get started, and then experiement from there.

Orange is a hot color for fall clothes this season, so why not throw some on your face, too? Just keep it sheer and peachy to get the look, with a shiny wash across your lids, dusted on your cheeks, or glossed on a lip.

Just because metallic makeup is pretty doesn’t mean you can’t be tough with it. The coolest autumnal metal hues this season are heavy, punk, and full of attitude, so don’t be precious about your application—really lean in.
