Welcome back to my Fall Makeup Series. Click here to see the first post! Makeup Look 1
I primed my eyes with an eye primer because eye shadows will never stay on my eyelids without one. As a base for the entire eyelid, I mixed Foxy and Venus. For the crease, I applied my favorite cool tone crease shade, a cool matte taupe and followed up with a medium matte brown all over the lid. Mixing shimmers with matte shades gave more dimension to the eye look so I chose a yellow gold to be layered on top of the medium brown and put a light maroon shade on the outer third and blended into the crease area ever so slightly. I used a taupe brow pencil to fill in my brows and topped it off with a brow mousse to keep the hairs in place.

Time for the statement lip! For lips, never forget to apply lip balm. Then, I topped that off with a wine colored lipstick. Because it leaves a semi-matte cream finish, it lasted a very long time on the lips.

I primed my face so that my makeup could last all day. I applied my liquid foundation (review here), followed by my concealer for my under eye area, a liquid concealer for blemishes, and powdered my entire face. For blush, I used a satin finish “immaculate pink” blush and contoured with a darker bronzing powder. Its pigmentation is crazy for a drugstore bronzer.

Bold lips are something I typically stay away from especially in the daytime, but I think a berry or wine colored lipstick for Fall is the best place to start!
How bold do you go with your lips in the daytime?
