I know we're still about a week away from actually fall but that doesn't mean we can't start getting our autumn faces ready. For me, this season is all about rich color and layering textures. I barely fuss with my makeup in the summer because I know I'm going to sweat it all off anyway but come September, I go all in. Here are some of my favorites!
Now that I have a skin regimen that works for me, I have to do a lot less work with foundation and concealer. I know it's "so highschool" but bareMinerals does wonders for me so I'll keep using it as long as I have to. I don't fuss too much with bronzer, especially in the beginning of fall while I'm still sporting a (sort of) tan. I do love to add some blush though, and this plum one from Chanel is perfect. You've probably seen it here before because I've been using the same shade for at least three years. They recently stopped making the exact color but "Rosewood" is a really great match.
For the eyes, I love to overdo it. I've discovered the importance of starting out with a primer and this one by Urban Decay works really well. For eyeshadow, this Ciaté x Olivia Palermo palette is the stuff of dreams. (And currently on sale.) I rarely rock a liquid liner in the summer so as soon as there's just a hint of chill in the air, I go full-on cat eye. I've been loving Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner in Trooper. I've been experimenting with a ton of different mascaras-- mostly way too expensive-- and have finally found one that is exactly what I was looking for. The best part? It's only THREE DOLLARS. It's e.l.f.'s Volume and Plumping mascara and you can find it at Target. If for some strange reason you don't have a Target near you, you can grab it here. Equally important, if not more so, is a good eyebrow to top it off. Benefit's Gimme Brow is fantastic and keeps my brows looking fantastic all day long.
Last but not least, the lips. I find exfoliating the lips is just as important as exfoliating everything else. Lush's lip scrubs are my favorite because they have the best flavors and they're edible. As far as lipstick goes, the combination of Mac's Whirl liner and Velvet Teddy lipstick will always be my favorite but I'm branching out a bit. I tried out a few Liquid Suede cream lipsticks from NYX, and my favorites are definitely Soft Spoken and Vintage.
