Your Guide to Spicy Colour for Fall

This fall is all about pumpkin spice, and we’re not just talking about lattés. It was only a matter of time before that seasonal favourite went from scent and flavours to spicy makeup and hairstyles. Check out the STYLU team’s favourite ways to incorporate spice into your fall style.

Spicy smoky eyes

A trend hitting Toronto for fall that builds on an already popular eye shadow look is the spicy smoky eye. To get this look, start with your basic smoky eye technique, applying a base shade, a transition shade, and then your darker shade at the outer corner and blended into the crease.

Once you have your basic smoky eye set, apply a shimmery colour reminiscent of the changing leaves. The colour “copper shimmer” in the Flawless eye palette by Makeup Revolution is perfect for this look. Then, dust over your copper shade with a golden shimmer, like the “metal” eye shadow in the same palette. The end result is a pretty fall eye that will remind everyone who looks at you of pumpkin spice and autumn bonfires.

Warm autumn hair colour

Warm tones are always in for fall. And this year some new shades are taking the lead from the usual warm gold tones. Rose gold accents are especially hot this season. Unlike traditional golden highlights, rose gold colouring provides a hint of pinkish red to your golden blonde.

And just like shimmery pumpkin spice colour is in for eye shadow, it’s appropriate for your autumn hair colour as well. You can get pumpkin spice hair by having your stylist vary shades of golden blonde, chestnut, and copper, to create those reflective red and gold shades seen in autumn leaves.
