Fall Makeup Routine
Welcome to fall, the start of the seasons where my deep berry red lipstick obsession is appropriate to wear everyday! My fall makeup routine is my favorite! I work full-time, so my routine is simple, fast, and long-lasting!
For the dry skin girls, I feel you because its only November 2nd and my skin is starting to flake. I have to put a lot of prep work into my skin to get it ready for my makeup routine!
Here is my basic fall makeup routine:
The foundation I like to use a CC cream, my new favorite is IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better™ CC+™ Cream. I need the extra moisture for my skin. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiance is a staple primer for me. Makeup Forever Step 1 Smoothing Primer is a staple for areas with large pores. I like to use IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye to hide any lack of sleep I got the night before. To set my concealer and foundation in place I use the new Laura Mercier Candle Glow Sheer Perfecting Powder.
Next I like to bronze my skin with the classic NARS Laguna Bronzer. For blush I tend to reach for Nars Dolce Vita or Becca Wild Honey. Becca’s highlighter in CChampagne Pop is also one of my favorites, I have sadly hit pan on it. The days I like to give champagne pop a break, I use The Balm’s Mary Lou Manizer.
My eye makeup changes on a daily basis, I like to us either Kat Von D’s Shade and Light Eye or Urban Decay Naked. I use the shade virgin, naked, half baked, smog, and dark horse from the Urban Decay palette.
The days I want a matte eye I use the shade and light palette. The colors I use are samael, solas, lucius, succubus, sytry, and liberatus. I change the way I use them on a daily basis, it all depends on my mood that day, sometimes I where darker makeup and sometime light makeup.
Eyeliner is one of two choices, Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in black or Urban Decay’s Bourbon eyeliner. I use Maybelline on my darker makeup days and Urban Decays on days where i don’t have a lot of eye makeup on. For mascara I use Rimmel Lash Accelerator and L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black.
Last but not least is the eyebrows. I fill in my brows everyday because if I did not they would be too light to see. My eyebrows are thick but they don’t show up well. I use Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe, its perfection!
Lips are the star of the show, I used to want to hide mine since I was always told they are big but now I embrace them. My favorite lipstick color is a deep berry red. I have been wearing Rimmel 107. It is a deep berry-red with cool undertones and a matte finish. The lipstick is grainy and somewhat heavy, I wear it for its color and ignore the rest.
If you know any perfect deep berry-red lipsticks let me know.
