Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! It’s becoming fall here in New York, the leaves are starting to fall off the trees and it’s freezing when I walk to work in the mornings. To celebrate my favorite season of the year, I thought I’d share my fall makeup look that has been my go-to the past few weeks. Check it out below!
First off, here is my bare face without any makeup, just some moisturizer and Chapstick on my lips. I’ve noticed that I have a lot of tiny bumps along my forehead and into my eyebrows that I’m looking to cover up, along with my normal everyday dark circles under my eyes and redness across my nose and cheeks.
For my first steps, I used the Rimmel Lasting Finish Liquid Foundation in Light Ivory. I’ve been loving this foundation because it does last a pretty long while and it has medium to heavy coverage depending on how much you put on. I try to go for a medium coverage look because my skin tends to look pretty cakey if I start loading up on the foundation. I also applied my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Fair, which I’ve talked about in length in previous posts and is just a generally good concealer. I applied both these products using the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, which applies liquids really well and is great for blending and buffing the product into your skin. This is a recent purchase and I have been loving it!
After apply my base, I set my foundation and congealer with the Maybelline Fit Me powder in Porcelain. This is a pretty good powder, it sets my liquids and keeps them lasting. I applied this with the Real Techniques Multi Task Brush and I used a light hand because my skin is both dry and oily in spots and I don’t want to look cakey and overly dry. Next up I applied the Benefit Sugarbomb blush using an ELF Powder Brush. I’ve always loved the Sugarbomb blush, it gives me a nice glow while not being too noticeable. The ELF Powder Brush is great for applying this because it doesn’t pick up too much product, giving me more control.
For the eye look I used two different eyeshadow kits, the Sephora Blinged Palette and the Wet and Wild I’m Getting Sunburnt Kit. First I placed the lighter skin toned shadow all over my eye using the Real Techniques Domed Eyeshadow Brush. This set a base for my lids, which I then put the darker brown color on using the same bush and blended the two colors together. Next I took the dark wine color from the Wet and Wild kit into my crease using an ELF Blending Eye Brush. I used this to warm up the look and make it more fall festive, and blending this throughout the crease to look more natural and smokey. Lastly, I took the gold color on an ELF C Brush and put this in the center of my lids to get a little sparkle and make my eyes stand out more.
I then used the Rimmel Exaggerate liquid eye liner to lightly line my eyes, following their natural shape. I then tight lined using the Rimmel Exaggerate Pencil liner and brought that down a bit on the lower water line. Lastly, the mascara I’ve been using lately is a sample of the Benefit They’re Real.
To finished off the look, I warmed up my face with an ELF Bronzer, using the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush and highlighted my face with Benefit Watt’s Up. I filled in my brows lightly using Benefit’s Goof Proof Brow Pencil, and applied the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Berlin to my lips. I love this look, it’s so warm and tends to lean towards neutral colors, which makes it great for an everyday fall look!
