Simple everyday autumn makeup

Hey guys!

Though I haven’t had a specific makeup look that I’ve been doing everyday recently, especially because I’ve been loving to do a heavier eye look, I’ve often been doing something similar to this. This is a very simple look, full of warm tones and with a wearable, while still being quite autumn, lipstick: perfect for everyday.

These are the products I’ll be using:

Step 1: Starting with a completely bare face I’ve been trying out a new technique where I put eyebrows on before absolutely everything else, moisturizer and everything. I use the brow kit with my Real Techniques angled eyeliner brush:

Step 2: Moisturizer, primer and foundation. I like using a stippling brush to blend out this foundation.

Step 3: Then I lay down my concealer like this: the darker Fit Me on any spots or redness and the lighter True Match under my eyes in a lazy girl’s triangle, on my eyelids down my nose and on my chin. Blend with my Real Techniques contour brush:

Step 4: After I’ve laid down my concealer I set it with my powder and a duo fiber contour brush

Step 5: Eyes! First I apply the excess shimmer all over my lid with my finger. Then I take a bit of this taupe-bronze sort of color in the crease and outer corner. Then I take some of the gold shadow on my finger and tap it on the middle of the lid. This gives a great sort of depth and interest to the eyelook. I finish it off with a bit of liquid eyeliner, right by the lash line. I love doing a subtle eyeliner like this it just gives the lashes way more volume and definition and I don’t need to be as precise as when I do a winged eyeliner.

Step 6: Add a couple of coats of mascara and finally, a bit of bronzer. The thing is though that I like to take the bronzer on a cheek brush and use it as more of a blush than a bronzer. This is such a good deep orange based color that it works great as a fall time blush.

Just add lipstick and you’re all done!

This is such a nice wearable look for everyday and you could easily swap out the lipstick for a darker one to make it even more fall appropriate.

Tell me which looks you’ve been rocking this fall in the comments!

Until next time,
