I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to the new month!
Because it is technically still Autumn (even though there is snow in the forecast for Thursday!!), I can still use Autumn in the title of this post! 🙂
I love a good berry lip and natural eyes for this time of the year. Dark lips add a little something to what would otherwise be a natural makeup look. I am so glad I am at the point where all I truly want to wear is a little bit of concealer, mascara, lip balm, and fill in the eyebrows! But sometimes it never hurts to add a pretty, dark berry lip color!
I love this look because of how fast it is, perfect for the time crunched college student!
step one: apply concealer on any blemishes, and under the eyes
step two: apply just a little bit of pressed powder to the T-zone
step three and four: add a glowy pink blush, and a shimmery highlight
I use Hourglass ambient lighting blush in “Diffused Heat” and Smashbox Light luminizing powder (which was discontinued! but similar highlighters can be found at Sephora, Ulta, or any drugstore!)
step five: fill in eyebrows
step six: add a shimmery champagne cream eyeshadow all over lid and a brown eyeshadow to define crease
I use Makeup Forever Aqua Cream in Warm Beige Champagne Shimmer and any matte brown eyeshadow that I have!
step seven: add a black mascara
step eight: finish off with your favorite berry toned lip stain and call it good! 🙂
What are your autumn makeup essentials? I’d love to know!!
