A Fall Makeup Look

Fall 2014 (8 of 22)Have I mentioned how much I love fall? I am sure I have because it’s my absolutely favorite season. I didn’t always like it though. When I lived in Poland it used to be my least favorite season, probably because I lived in a big city and autumn in a city is usually gloomy, grey and rather ugly. However, once I moved to Michigan, it all changed for me and now, every year, I look forward to the beginning of fall.

In today’s post I am going to show you a makeup look, that’s great for fall and that’s inspired by the colors of the season.

Products Fall 2014 (11 of 15)Face:

  • Urban Decay De-Slick Oil- Control Makeup Setting Spray- used as a primer. I love using it as a primer, and not just as a finish spray, I noticed it makes my foundation last longer and it provides a nice matte finish to my skin.
  • Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Fluide in Creme. I received a sample of this foundation at Sephora and I am in love!
  • itCosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination in Light, applied with a ColorMe powder sponge.
  • Mac Cosmetics Powder Blush in Taupe for contouring.
  • Nars Cosmetics blush in Luster. Luster is described as “sheer golden apricot”, it looks a little brown on my skin but I love  the golden sheen it adds to my cheeks.
  • Hourglass Lighting Ambient Palette, Incadescent Light used for highlighting the top of my cheeks.

Products Fall 2014 (12 of 15)Eyes:

  • Nars Pro Prime Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base
  • Mac Cosmetics Paint Pot in Let’s Skate, which is described as “pale pink”. I got it a few years ago when it first launched as a LE and I have loved it since. I applied it underneath my eyebrow and all over the lid. It shows up on the eyes as the most beautiful iridescent shimmery pale pink.
  • Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 in The Next Big Thing. I used a true gold shade in Hoopla all over the movable part of my lid, blending it into the crease and to my lower eyelid, along the lower lashes. Fall 2014 (18 of 22)

  • Inglot Freedom System Eyeshadow in 452, which is a burgundy red and I talked about it in my Five for Fall post. Using a small crease brush, I applied it into my crease and to the outer 1/3 of my eyelid and also to the outer 1/3 on my lower eyelid. Products Fall 2014 (13 of 15)
  • Loreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner in Espresso applied to my waterlines. You know I don’t go anywhere without this eyeliner.
  • BUXOM Lash Waterproof Mascara in Blackest Black. It’s a new purchase for me but I am extremely happy with it, it makes my lashes a mile long!
