There is nothing quite as beautiful as New England in the Fall; there is nothing quite like Fall-inspired makeup. Eyeshadows get warmer and richer; lipstick colors turn burgundy and brown. The crisp air makes it suitable for wearing glam without fear of products melting off your face. In today’s post, I’ll be sharing a curated selection of my best Fall-Inspired eyeshadow palettes.

The Best Fall-Inspired Eyeshadow Palettes
The best, most Fall-inspired shadows fall into three categories: (1) rich brown, grungy neutrals, (2) warm orange-red tones, and (3) grungy rainbows.
The Dose of Colors Baked Browns* 5-Pan Palette is a perfect warm-toned, all-matte eyeshadow palette for neutral eyeshadow lovers. This compact little palette
Dose of Colors Blushing Berries Palette | $32.00, CF
The Dose of Colors Blushing Berries* 5-Pan Palette is a dark, berry-toned, all-matte eyeshadow palette that still runs very neutral. This palette is a wonderful buy for anyone who is looking to dip her or his toes into colorful eyeshadows.
ColourPop You Should See Me In a Crown | $40.00, CF
ColourPop’s You Should See Me In a Crown bundle is easily the brand’s best Fall-themed palette released this year. This pre-made single shadow bundle has much greater depth in tones and a wider range of colors than the other fall-themed releases. When I look at this palette, I can clearly see the vibrant, ever-changing autumnal leaves changing color.
If orange tones aren’t your vibe then the KKW Classic Blossom Palette may be worth checking out. KKW Beauty’s Classic Blossom is an underrated palette full of classic, pink and berry-toned shadows in a full spectrum of light crease shades and deeper, smokier berry tones.
Persona Cosmetics Copper Color Theory Kit | $38.00, CF
As someone with a large collection, I’m a huge fan of micro-palettes and the Persona Cosmetics Copper Color Theory Kit is no exception. This mini 5-pan palette comes in a copper-themed kit with an eyeliner and eyeshadow brush. Although monochromatic, this highly curated, vibrant orange-copper kit creates many beautiful looks.
Also, overall, the Persona eyeshadow formula is a favorite of mine. Check out this review of the Persona Identity Palette or this review on the brand’s Season One Liquid Lipsticks and Season One Lip Glosses.

The Best Fall-Inspired Eyeshadow Palettes – Grungy Rainbows
Grungy Rainbows & Vampy Vibes
Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture | $42.00, CF
Say what you’d like about the formula, but the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette remains a stunning, a-typical rainbow palette perfect for the Fall season. These shadows do take work to build and blend on the eye. However, the color story is unrivaled for the Fall.
Sadly, this palette was discontinued. However, makeup lovers can readily find this palette at most off-price retailers in the United States. In fact, that’s where I purchased mine!
Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina | $45.00, CF
ColourPop’s Good Sport Palette remains one of the brand’s best curated and most beloved eyeshadow palettes. Like the Subculture palette, this 12-pan palette is an a-typical grungy rainbow palette that features everything from neutrals to greens and purples. Moreover, both neutral lovers and color lovers will be able to create gorgeous Fall-inspired looks.
The Melt Cosmetics Gemini Palette is easily one of my favorite palettes in my collection. This palette enables wearers to create the most grungy, green and neutral looks. Moreover, the range of olive and pukey-colored shadows of this palette inspired countless copycat palettes. Each shade is vibrant, creamy, and easy to blend out or pack onto the eye.
Final Thoughts on my the Best Fall-Inspired Eyeshadow Palettes
At the end of the day, makeup and clothing no longer have to be seasonal. Nevertheless, there is something about the changing of the leaves that makes me want to mimic that with my beauty choices. Ultimately, each of these palettes enables wearers to bring a little bit of autumn on their eyelids.
