Hey guys! If you follow me on Instagram then you might have seen my Fall makeup look that I posted a few days ago! I was so into pinks and corals during the summer so I definitely wanted to bust out more of bronzy and vampy colors to create a wearable fall look! My face contouring was totally inspired by Samer Khouzami - celeb makeup artist in Lebanon (@samerkhouzami on Instagram)! I also got to play around with the new Urban Decay Vice 2 palette..which I blogged about in the last post! I actually created a product set so you guys can see exactly what I used!
Ok let's start with the face. As you can see I did some heavy contouring! I know it seems like too much but look how my skin looks! No I did not airbrush these photos...I don't even know how! Going heavy on the foundation/concealer definitely gave me great coverage! So I used the Benefit Erase Paste in all the areas I wanted highlighted. I love this concealer because it's heavy like foundation but gives me amazing coverage and doesn't move! For the darker shade, I used my Grafobian HD cream foundation palette and used a shade that's about 4-5 shades darker than my skin tone. I used the darker shade to chisel my face! Of course I blended everything out with the Beauty Blender! Afterwards I used the Benefit Hoola bronzer to go over the contouring to make it more intense. I finished off my cheeks by applying the new MAC Skinfinish in Scene to be Seen. This blush is such a beautiful pink/plum color and it's part of the new holiday collection!
For my eyes I busted out the new Urban Decay Vice 2 palette! I used the beautiful shimmery bronze shade called Stash all over my lid, matte brown Rewind in my crease, shimmery charcoal Smokeout in my crease and outter corner, peachy shimmery Dope on my browbone and gold shimmery Strike in my tear duct. I lined my lids with Maybelline's gel pot liner and of course loaded up on Benefit's They're Real! mascara!
And now to my favorite part...the lips! I think what really completed this look are the dark lips! I lined my lips with MAC's liner in Nightmoth and filled in using MAC's lipstick in Rebel! I'm loving this color combo for this season! It's totally towards the vampy side yet it's more wearable!
Lastly, I slightly filled in my eyesbrows using the new Benefit Gimme Brow gel which I am loooooving at the moment! I will sit down and do a detailed review of this product later this week because trust me, it deserves it's own post!
So what do you guys think? What are your favorite Fall beauty trends?
