Hello loves; hope you are all doing well. Today is makeup day; one of the only reasons I love Fall/Autumn is definitely not because of the weather change but because of the MAKEUP!
I just love wearing dark lips so much and this is just the season where I can look like Morticia Adams and no one will bat an eye.
In this look I am showing a few things and doing mini reviews and I hope you don't mind.
Starting off with the face; I used the Becca shimmering skin perfector in Opal; I got this in my Space NK goodie bag and I love the glow it gives; although am oily I love to glow; just not get too greasy.
This product is great as it has SPF 20+ so you get that protection and it evens out your skin tone and give your skin a healthy natural glow.
Onto my eyes; for my eyebrows I used the Anastasia Brow wiz; and this is not like any other brow pencil; first off it's really expensive but for some reason I always reach for it; my eyebrows are nice and think normally just a few sparse areas so I noticed when I started using this I don't fill my whole brow in just the bits I need and I like the natural look. As you can see I have a golden shadow at the brow bone area; I decided to do something different as I was obsessing about a Beyonce makeup look I had seen.
Now for my eyes; I wanted to keep it smokey but without making too much of an effort. I used the Maya_mia palette by Anastasia Beverley Hills. I used the Sienna eyeshadow into my crease to add a warmth to my eyes. On the actual lids I just had a little swipe of my MAC mineralise skin finish powder in Deep Dark just to mute out any discolouration. In the outer corner I used Deep Brown in and packed it in a V shape; I then used Sienna to blend it in and blend it into the lids,
On the lower lash line; I added Deep Brown and blended it out with Sienna. My lashes are the 43 by Red Cherry which are my new favourites. I also used the Urban Decay Perversion eyeliner slightly on my upper lash line. I also put the nude eyeliner in my water line to make my eyes appear a bit bigger.
For my foundation; I opted for my Dior Nude foundation; which I did a review of here. Today I focused on the skin so for my concealer I just used the Make up For Ever HD concealer.
To contour, I used my Kiko stick Foundation which is about 4 times darker than my skin tone and then added my Sleek Face Form palette in Medium to set the cream foundation. I opted for no blush today but I highlighted with the golden colour in my sleek face form.
Now this lipstick was love at first sight; I tried it on and I simply could not walk away without buying it; this is the Urban Decay revolutionary lipstick in Shame. I love the creamy texture and it glides on so easy.
If you wanted to go for a safer option; I donned a nude lip; I just lined and filled my lips in Nyx Natural. I then added a nude gloss.
I really loved how this look turned out and I am excited to do some more looks for this Fall/Autumn.
