Every season has its charms, but there's something particularly magical about autumn—the nip in the air, the cozy wardrobe, and, of course, the rustic color palette. If you're tying the knot during the 'ber months, the season's chilly evenings and turning leaves can provide plenty of wedding makeup inspo. Be it a smoldering eye look in deep tones, a rich lipstick moment (or both), there are many ways to channel fall in a style that's uniquely yours. Ahead, we've rounded up 30 makeup looks to inspire any and every autumn bride.
