Everyday Fall Makeup

I tend to get in a routine with my makeup, same palettes, same blush, etc. Every now and again I switch it up. This past month I have been grabbing for the same shadow, blush and lip combo a lot. The look is easy and perfect for fall. It is great for the mornings that I want to look put together but no have to take a lot of effort. 


I love a good eyeshadow that functions great as an all over lid shade but can be buffed out around the edges to create the illusion that you are wearing multiple eyeshadow shades. I recently fell back into love with MAC's Woodwinked eyeshadow. It is one of those mysterious colors that looks more brown in the pan, more gold on the eye and can be buffed out to create a reddish brown crease color around the eye. It really is the easiest eyeshadow to wear when you are in a rush.

The other way to get more use out of an eye shadow is to use a cream eyeshadow as a base, not only does it change the look of your eyeshadow, it can also help make it last longer. Using a light or white can make your eyeshadow look bright and true to color while using a dark cream shadow can give your shadow a smokier look. Lately I have been grabbing a dark shadow to use as a base, such as Makeup Forever Aquacream #15.

I finish off the eyes with a quick swipe of a black eyeliner pen and a couple layers of mascara. I personally love to layer my mascaras to get the look I like. Lately I have been layering my favorite CoverGirl Clump Crusher under the volumizing Maybelline The Rocket Mascara.


Because I have been going for a warm toned eyeshadow, I like to warm up my complexion with a bronzer, such as NARS Laguna , applied in the E3 shape. I finish off my cheeks with my favorite fall blush NARS Sin. It looks like nothing special in the pan, but when applied to your cheeks it gives you this great natural berry flush. I don't find that the gold shimmer in the berry blush really shows up on the face, which is good because I don't always want to look like a disco ball.

Finally I have been loving the pinky nude natural shade of the Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Celestial. This liquid lipstick 100% lives up to the hype that surrounds it. The lip lacquers are soft, moisturizing, have great pigmentation and are long lasting. I definitely need to get my hands on more of them.

I have been loving my everyday fall look. It is simple and quick for me to put on in the morning. I would love to find more eyeshadows that are great to wear on their own, creating a multidimensional look when blended out. What has been your go to makeup look for the fall?
