Before social media, my first sources of beauty inspiration were magazines. From them, I learned that an intense eye look paired best with a neutral lip and that my concealer should be a little bit lighter than my actual skin tone to brighten my under-eye area and help me look more awake. But the truth is that most of the time, these tips were accompanied by a picture of a model who didn’t look like me, of course with a look done by a professional.
Thankfully, with the rise of Instagram, many people have jumped into the beauty space with their own take on beauty trends. These Instagrammers show their unique style and make their own rules when it comes to what they choose to wear on their faces, breaking with the beauty standards that magazines once portrayed. Increased representation in Hollywood has also been a major plus for beauty, as Latinx stars across film, music, and more rock statement looks that show off the best of their natural features.
If you, like me, are looking for inspiration from people you can relate to, we’ve highlighted 10 stunning beauty looks as seen on Latinx creators and stars across Instagram. These fall makeup looks in particular are worth saving into your “Beauty Inspo” collection to use as a makeup guide this fall.

Rachel Zegler's makeup look here may be professionally done by makeup artist Allan Avendaño, but it's surprisingly easy to DIY this sultry glow. Just be sure to prep your skin and blend out a few coordinating warm brown shades on your eyes, cheeks, and lips.

A cool trick I recently learned to add bright pop of color to an eye makeup look without covering my entire lid is to apply it in just the inner corner. Here, Cuban beauty vlogger Kathleen created the look by using yellow and blending it into a coffee shade on the rest of her lid.
Graphic eyeliner is a hard yes when it comes to experimenting this season. The yellow and green gradient seen here on Isabela Merced is a sure way to turn heads.
Sharpness and Shimmer
If you prefer a more classic look but still want to experiment, try adding some pale green shimmer to your sharp smoky eye.
I’m obsessed with this look that Panamanian vlogger Iris Beilin recreated from Lizzo’s MTV VMA performance.
