For this collection of looks I really wanted to focus on how to balance wearing fall trends and fall classic pieces together! Here I've partnered a bold deep purple lip with a soft neutral eye.
Skin preparation is truly the most important part to achieving a flawless makeup application. To begin I used a gentle exfoliator to remove any dead skin and get a smooth even surface. Next I applied a vitamin c toner. Toner is a must because it balances your skin so you don't get super oily or dry mid day plus it removes any traces of grime that your cleanser may have missed. I follow my toner with an antioxidant serum to repair protect my skin from free radical damage. I mixed a few drops of liquid bronzer to my oil free moisturizer for an overall radiant glow! To complete my skincare regimine, I used a lightweight eye cream for hydration and it will help concealer blend easier!
I know it seems like a lot of steps, however they are really essential because if you want to have beautiful makeup you have to start with great skin!
I started with using a foundation primer. A good primer will help your foundation blend better and stay put all day! I applied a medium coverage liquid with a foundation brush and filed with concealer under the eyes for brightness! Since strobing is a fun trend now I went with a peachy gold highlighter on my cheekbones and blended it with a warm orange blush. This is one of my favorite cheek combinations!
Eyes and Brows:
I used a loose brow powder to fill in a few sparse areas and finished with a tinted brow gel. This is my go to brow for a quick polished look for my naturally full brows.
For the eyes I wanted to keep it simple and classic since the lip color is very bold.
After applying an eyeshadow primer I used a warm brown shadow in my crease then blended a nude shadow onto my lid. To add a bit more dimension I worked a deep chocolate brown into the outer corner. I applied a very thin liquid black liner to the upper lashline for framing the eye. On the lower lash line I paired a nude liner on the inner rim with a purple pencil smudged underneath to complete the look. I chose this color palette because it's easy to wear and it will compliment your entire fall wardrobe!
I mixed a couple of colors together to get this deep smoky purple lip! Since I didn't have a liner to compliment this shade, I used an eyeliner of a similar color for a liner. Also to make the finish more matte, I pressed a translucent loose powder on top.
This is a great look to wear during the fall season plus by partnering a classic eye with a vivid lip trend you will look polished and chic!
OK, BRB going to recreate this look.
