This past Sunday, we were invited over to friend’s house for a little pumpkin carving to really set off the Halloween/Fall season. Usually, Sundays are my days to decompress and not fuss with my makeup whatsoever, but since it was a festive day, I decided to channel the festivities through my look. I’m loving the oranges and browns for fall right now so this is just one of my favorite looks I’ve been rocking lately. Be aware that I hadn’t had the time to put my lips on for the day in the photos. I sometimes have a bad habit of putting my lips on right at the last minute. Shhh don’t tell anyone! Even though I’m sure they notice this by now. Here’s a little preview of the look and the products I used.
For the face:
I’m in love with the new YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation. It’s my new favorite foundation as it gives me full coverage (which I need) and looks flawless, especially when applied with my beauty blender. I set it with the YSL semi loose powder. For blush, I use NARS’s Sin and Albatross highlighter on my cheeks and to get the perfect contrast.
For the eyes:
To start, I used MAC’s Vanilla all over the eye and brow bone, then I swept MAC’s Daydreaming shade just in the crease and slightly on the brow bone. You could even stop here and add a little liner and mascara for a simple pop-of-color look. To continue, I added MAC’s Cranberry (one of my absolute favorite colors!) shade to the outer corners to the middle of the lid. To add some depth, I add just a touch of MAC’s Sketch color to the outer corner and then finish the look with a sweep of MAC’s White Frost on the brow bone and the inner corner of the eye. I line the inside and outside rim of the eye with MAC’s Fluidline liner in Blacktrack and brush on a few coats of Benefits They’re Real! mascara to finish it all off. For the brows, I used my trusty Anastasia Brow Powder duo in Ebony.
There you have it! Try it out and tell me what you think!
