7 Bold Makeup YouTube Tutorials to Inspire You This Autumn

Lisa Patulny

Autumn is arguably the best time for experimenting with bold makeup. During summer, sweltering temps mean any tricky eyeshadow you apply has an ice cube's chance in Bikram of actually staying put. In winter, we're often too busy rain-proofing our skin and hair to care about much else. Not so, come fall when covering up in turtlenecks and cashmere beanies means you've got to bring the party somehow.

Ahead, we've compiled seven of our favourite bold makeup tutorials from YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Whether you come away with concrete inspo for a seasonal smoky eye or just marvel at the skill of the teacher, each one is a must-watch. Grab yourself a jewel-toned eyeshadow palette (like Nars' new Narsissist L'Amour Toujours, $93) and keep scrolling to watch the videos!

Grungy Smoky Eye

A how-to for three different takes on the grungy eye Eldridge created on Kendall Jenner for the December issue of Vogue. 

Mauve Makeup

Super-wearable, this tonal look is perfect for daytime. Not sure about mauve? Trust—it brightens up skin instantly.

Autumn Leaves-Inspired

How pretty is this? The only way you'll feel more autumnal is by coordinating this look with a pumpkin spice latte.

Vampy Smoky Eye

A little OTT for the office but perfect for a big night out. (Especially since during autumn you'll likely need extra encouragement to leave the couch...)

Olive Green Glitter

Jewel-tones like olive green never look better than when paired with wintery basics like grey cashmere jumpers and frayed jeans.

Glowy Skin + Wine Lips

Cooler weather can turn even the most radiant complexion scarily dull. Fake a little luminosity then add a burgundy lip.

Rose Gold Lids

Created as an N.Y.E look, we think Brook's rose gold lids are a delight anytime. Even without the glitter, the metallic tones sing.
