These 8 Eyeshadow Must Haves will perfectly complement your fall wardrobe. Fall is the season for smoky, jewel-toned eye makeup to accentuate your eyes. The fall 2012 runways were crawling with models rocking gorgeous smoky eyes as well as bright, vibrant eye makeup. I’ve listed several of my favorite eyeshadow must haves for fall as well as some that are on my shopping list!

I was lucky enough to have gotten this gorgeous eyeshadow duo during its presale when I attended a NARS makeup class, so I’ve been wearing it for months and must say it’s a favorite of mine! It goes on subtly, but can be made more dramatic by continuing to layer and blend the shadow. The iridescent orchid and regal blue are lovely for fall and pair nicely with the rich tones in our fall wardrobes.

Plum lipstick was a big hit on the fall runways, so why not translate this same look into eye makeup? This matte, dark plum eyeshadow must have adds a richness to any eye makeup look. Wear it alone or pair it with a smoky black or gray shadow for a smoky eye with a twist. I think more people should wear matte eyeshadows… I think shimmer and glitter tends to be overdone.

I just purchased this palette 2 weeks ago and love its versatility. These eyeshadow must haves are called Aqua Creams and can be used as eyeshadow or eyeliner. Once applied, they set up fast so work quickly if you plan to blend them out, but they don’t budge once they’re on! These are great for wearing from day to night. The palette consists of shades of black with jewel-toned highlights as well as an ivory all perfect for fall.
