When we think of autumn, the first thing that comes to mind (after the slowly-dropping humidity — obviously a number one priority) is gorgeous autumn makeup looks. Inspired by falling leaves, changing colours and the cooler weather, we love trying out new things as the seasons change.
3 Eyeshadow Palettes to Add to Your Autumn Makeup Wishlist
Autumn makeup usually means a transition to darker, warmer shades. It also acts as the perfect excuse to break out the shimmers, especially on the eyes where they create a totally glam effect. To help celebrate the new season, we’ve rounded up three stunning palettes that come jam-packed with apt shades.
Keep on reading to discover the three eyeshadow palettes you should add to your autumn makeup wishlist.
Illamasqua Vanitas Rose Gold Palette
Illamasqua are a high-quality, avant garde makeup brand known for their all-inclusive approach — they’re avid proponents of the universality of makeup, which we love! Their Vanitas Rose Gold Palette screams autumn, right down to its reflective rose gold packaging. Looking at the shades up close, you’ve got a great range of subtle and bold tones with this palette.
Our favourite accent shade for an autumn makeup look is ‘Terra’, the clay red-orange that sits second from the right on the bottom row. Use this shade all over the lid, pairing with the ochre colour ‘Vernau’ to blend out. Perfect for emulating the rich, vibrant colour of falling leaves!

We also love going a little more subtle with this palette from Illamasqua, as the variety easily allows you to do so. Shimmering champagne hue ‘Bronx’ looks killer on the lid, whereas ‘Servant’ (top row; third from left) is the perfect inner corner or brow bone highlight. This palette is a must-have in any autumn lover’s arsenal.
