Makeup Look: Autumn Vibes

Fall is in full swing (at least calendar-wise since So-Cal is more cold Spring mode weather wise), but that doesn’t mean that one can’t get into the Autumn spirit anyway! So Pumpkin Spice and all things creepy, makeup looks for fall tend to focus on rich gold and copper colours, and I’m here for that.

For this simple look, I chose to use Colourpop’s Eye Palette Head Capricorn in Charge.

This eye look is very easy to achieve:

Lid: Independent shade all over the lid, then top off with a light tap of Hustle Hard (it’s best to use your finger than a brush for this).

Crease: Use Independent again.

Lower lid: First apply Independent to the lower lash line, pulling the color down. Then use Ambition strictly along the lash line, as a liner.

Brow bone: Use a matte white shadow (I used Lancome’s Daylight).

Waterline: White eyeliner (I used Lancome’s Le Crayon Khol in Blanc).

Mascara: Colourpop Act Natural Mascara in Black

You can finish this look with any nude lippie, I’m a huge fan of Maybelline’s Liquid Lipstick in Poet topped off with Glossier’s clear lipgloss! For blush, I’d say go for peachy hues (I actually used a peachy eyeshadow from Lancome as blush).

And there you have it, a simple, glam fall look that takes give or take twenty minutes to complete, leaving you just in enough time in the morning to swing by your favourite coffee shop for the must-have pumpkin spice latte.


Gettin’ Rosy Make-Up Look!


This summer has been particularly warmer than usual, and because of that I haven’t been inclined to wear too much makeup. Hence, my choice to skip eyeliner (gasp!) and go for a fresher look. This look below is more on par with how I used to do my makeup as a teen, but I see that the look is still quite on trend!


I rarely use foundation (unless I have to do a photoshoot where wearing more makeup actually helps with photos coming out better), and even then I tend to use a BB cream rather than a foundation. So, I usually just prep my undereye skin with Smashbox’s Photofinish Primer so that it’ll create a smooth canvas for my concealer (I used Lacome Long-Lasting Undereye Concealer in Ivoire). I set everything with Makeup Forever’s Ultra HD Pressed Powder in Transluscent. For blush, I went with Lancome’s La Rose Blush Poudrer and highlighted my cheeks with Jeffree Star’s Skin Frost in Peach Goddess.


Eyes & Lips

For the brows, I used Medusa’s Makeup Brow Wow Wow which is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. This brow kit comes with a powder brow tint and a brow bone highlighter. I then applied Urban Decay’s Harajuku eyshadow on the lid (but any frosty pink shade will do the trick) and applied Urban Decay’s Anaheim eyeshadow in the crease as well as using it as a liner to give my eyes some extra definition (you can choose any taupe shade for this step, but the secret is to not go too dark because you want it to look subtle and seamless). I then applied Lancome’s Le Crayon in Blanc in the waterline to mask any possible redness and make my eyes really pop. I topped the whole eye look off with Benefit’s They’re Real Lengthening Mascara in Black.


For the lips I decided to go with Jeffree Star’s Velour Liquid Lipstick in Calabasas, which has become my go-to shade this summer because it’s such a pretty shade of pink without it being cheesy or leaning towards the Barbie or bubblegum territory.


I used 11 products in all (which isn’t too bad) and it took me about 20-25 minutes to apply, so you won’t be spending all day trying to get ready (cause really you’ve got places to go and memories to make!).
