My Top 10 Picks for Fall Eye Shadows

I'm loving the fall eye shadow colors!  There are so many gorgeous browns, bronzes, golds and really warm colors that can make your otherwise dull winter skin really pop!  I'm a huge fan of using all of the colors I mentioned as well as using shimmery colors.  Using something with a bit of a shimmer or shine just gives an extra oomph to your eyes and plays really nicely against a matte finish.  After extensive, laborious (lol) research I've picked these 10 shades as my top 10 fall eye shadows.  Let me know what you think!

MAKE UP FOR EVER - Artist Shadow
Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow- Pinky Earth
This is a gorgeous cranberry, shimmery brown, great for making all eye colors pop

Urban Decay - Eyeshadow
Urban Decay- Half Baked
This is a gorgeous shimmery gold color with a hint of bronze to it.  It looks especially beautiful on blue eyes


NARS - Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow
NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow- Subra
This is a gorgeous plum, shimmery color that looks amazing on the lids as well as in the crease.  All of their Dual-Intensity shadows are gorgeous this season!


NARS - Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow
NARS- Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow- Dione
This shadow is a beautiful champagne, beige color that looks amazing on all eye colors.  It's so nude and effortless it really makes eyes pop
Bobbi Brown - Eye Shadow
Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow- Mahogany Dark Ash Brown
It's easy to love the shimmery and metallic colors, but you can't get the full effect  of those without a few matte colors!  This color by Bobbi Brown is perfect for creating a gorgeous contrast to any of the colors I mentioned above, and brown is so neutral it goes with almost anything.  Also, this particular shade is dark enough to create a smokey impact but also able to be blended out for just a hint of brown.


Dior - Diorshow Fusion Mono Long-Wear Professional Mirror-Shine Eyeshadow
DIOR Diorshow Fusion Mono Long-Wear Professional Mirror-Shine Eyeshadow- Millennium
This is a gorgeous gold color with hints of green.  It's super metallic so it really makes your eyes pop and brings out the natural color.  It goes on smoothly and you can really layer it to get as much or as little of an impact as you like.


Laura Mercier - Baked Eye Colour - Wet/Dry
Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour- Wet/Dry Hot Chocolate
This color is phenomenal because of it's versatility. You can add water or fix spray to your brush to get a wet, creamy look or you can apply as it to get a gorgeous finish.  Either way this color is so neutral it looks great on all eye colors.


MAC Cosmetics: Eye Shadow in Cranberry
Mac Eyeshadow- Cranberry
This color is just beyond gorgeous.  It's a purple, burgundy color that is the epitome of fall.  It compliments almost every color you pair it with and it has the most gorgeous finish.

This color is a great, neutral brown.  It's a perfect crease color for creating definition and deepening eyes.  It's definitely worth getting if you're a fan of neutrals.
