MY FALL MAKEUP ESSENTIALS

Fall is one of my favorite seasons, and I’m so excited it’s finally here. Being a makeup junkie, I love changing up my makeup a bit when the seasons change. For fall I love wearing more warm-toned eyeshadows, a winged eyeliner, and a darker lip color. There are a few specific products that I love wearing during the fall time to create the perfect makeup look for this time of year, and I’m going to share them with you in this blogpost.

Eyes

As I said, I love wearing more warm-toned eyeshadows during the fall season and I’ve found the perfect palette for it. This is the Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette. It’s my most used eyeshadow palette in my makeup collection and I love it so much. It has the most perfect colors for the fall season and it’s also really affordable. The quality of the eyeshadows is really amazing and you can create so many different looks with it.

I also have one single eyeshadow from MAC that I love wearing in the fall season. This is the MAC eyeshadow in ‘Star Violet’. It’s a beautiful shimmery purple color (which sounds scary, I know) with some warm tones to it. Even though it’s a purple color, it can still look quite natural as it’s not bright at all. It especially will look amazing when you have green eyes, as it will really make the color of your eyes pop.

If I’m not wearing any eyeshadow, I love to have a little winged liner on. I think winged eyeliner looks really flattering and I especially love wearing it during the fall time. I really like the eyeliner from essence as it can create a really precise wing and doesn’t dry out that fast as other ones I’ve tried before (and trust me, I’ve tried a lot of eyeliners). This eyeliner is also really affordable, so you can’t really go wrong with it.

Lips

Bold lips are a staple during the fall time and I especially love wearing it with some winged eyeliner. I’ve already done a whole blogpost about my favorite lipsticks for the fall time, so if you’re interested you can check it out here. For this post I’d like to point out my absolute favorite dark lip color of the moment, which is the NARS velvet matte lip pencil in the shade ‘Cruella’. I think this is the perfect color if you really want that dark red lip.

If you’re a bit more into the purple shades for fall, the MAC retro matte liquid lipcolour in the shade ‘tailored to tease’ is a really good option. This color is a bit more bright, but it’s such a beautiful purple. I think this color will look good on so many skin tones and the formula of this products is also amazing. It stays on all day and dries up completely matte.

Face

When it comes to face makeup in the fall time, I love having a bit more of a strong contour. The Sleek face contour kit is the perfect product for this, as the color is cool toned, very pigmented and really easy to blend. This contour shade makes it really easy to create a very precise contour as it’s not patchy at all. Another plus is that it’s really affordable and it even contains a powder highlight too.

For blush, I really like the MAC blush in the shade ‘dainty’. This blush is a light yellow pink with gold pearl. I really like wearing colors like this during the fall time as the pink color gives the look of having these flushed cheeks from the cold, while still looking very natural. This blush is definitely a staple in my collection, so if you’re looking for a new one, give this a try!

What are your favorite products to use during the fall season?
