Simple Autumn Makeup

8:55 PM

As soon as the first chill is in the air, I get incredibly excited for autumn. Fall is my favourite season - the bright leaves, crisp air, cozy sweaters and of course, Halloween - all combine to make the months of September and October one of my favourite times of year. In the last couple of years I've had another reason to be excited, and that reason is the makeup! 

Fall is the season of bright berry lips, smoky eyes and flawless (well, as close as possible) skin. Although I am definitely still learning the ways of the makeup world, I've been enjoying experimenting with different looks for the season, and thought I would share my current favourite "look" with you, lovely readers.

As soon as the temperature cools down, my skin dries up. The ProEVEN BB Cream by Vichy helps to create an even skin tone while adding moisture without the greasiness. Make sure to set with a powder though, or by the end of the day you may mistake your forehead with an oil slick.

I've been playing around with a lot of different concealers lately. It is a difficult task to cover up my dark (and I mean, DARK) circles, and the L'Oreal Magic Lumi brightening concealer does the job - although I'd love it to have a little bit more coverage.

For eyes, I've been sticking with an easy application of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze and a quick swipe of mascara. The bronze colour of this great drugstore cream shadow brings out my blue eyes without the hassle of three or four different shades. 

For lips, I used a little bit of MAC lipstick in Rebel and rubbed it into my lips to create a stained effect, instead of the full on colour that may be more appropriate for evening.

And perhaps my favourite part of this look is Benefit's Rocketeur blush. It adds the perfect rosy and natural glow. Definitely worth the up-there price.
