A Fall Makeup Tutorial
I thought about calling this a Pumpkin Spice Makeup Tutorial just because everything Pumpkin Spice is a big deal right now and since I was channeling my inner Autumn spirit I thought it was apropos.
But then I remembered that I don’t like Pumpkin Spice anything so. . . it didn’t make sense. I feel like I need to be in a support group named “Those Who Do Not Love Pumpkin Spice Anything” so I don’t feel so alone in the world. Maybe I’ll get that started. Let me know if you need an invite. We’ll focus on Chocolate everything instead.
Anyway, I created a simple bronze-y fall look for you to try as we approach this upcoming season of dreamy weather and crispy fall leaves. I wanted a lot of warmth in both the shadow and the face! And my lips were a plum shade that I reserve for the cooler months!
Naked 2 Palette(tease), Tarte Exposed blush, Mac Lipstick in Syrup, Hourglass Arch brow pencil in Platinum Blonde, POND’S Dry Skin Cream, Maskcara IIID foundation, Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in No Pressure, Urban Decay Secret Service, Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen
I began with the POND’S Dry Skin Cream. This is super hydrating, making it very effective as dryer air moves in to the south. I’m so happy to be getting away from humidity, but the dryness around my nose is obnoxious in the wintertime! A creative way to use the POND’S Dry Skin Cream is to only put in in places that you need extra hydration. If you have an oily t-zone but dryness in other areas, use the POND’S Dry Skin Cream in the areas you need it, and a lighter moisturizer on the oily areas! Don’t be afraid to tailor your products to certain areas of your face based on need!
Next I applied Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in No Pressure all over the lid.
I added Secret Service, from Urban Decay, to the crease.
I didn’t want too much liner since the shadow was darker than usual, so the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen was perfect for a bronze definition along my upper lash line.
I added a few swipes of mascara on top, and held off on the bottom lashes for the time being.
I used the contour shade from Maskcara’s IIID foundation palette around the outer part of my face, and used the lighter shade for the center. I have a tutorial for how I use this foundation coming VERY soon!!
Because my under eye circles are so dark, I need to top off the foundation with a touch of concealer.
A strong brow was another part of this look, and I used the perfect shade of Platinum Blonde by Hourglass.
To add a touch of depth on my lower lashline, I piked up Tease from the Naked 2 Palette with a pointed brush and swept back and forth.
And here is the final look! Warm, glowy, and perfect for 60 degrees and sunny!
Do you warm up your makeup a bit for the fall? And do you change your moisturizer as well? I always have needed something a little heavier on certain areas, and POND’S Dry Skin Cream is perfect for that!
