Today I thought I’d do a quick blog post about my favorite fall makeup. What I like most about the following products is that they aren’t too over-the-top-glam. You can create multiple looks, whether you are wearing this makeup day-to-day or to a holiday party. Let’s get started!
I have to say that the Maybelline City Mini Palette in Rooftop Bronzes is one of the best items EVER at the drugstore. I’ve said many times that drugstore eyeshadows normally don’t do anything for me; they are usually too powdery with not enough pigment. However, Rooftop Bronzes is a game-changer!
As you can see, this palette is stocked with golden, bronze and champagne shades. Each shadow is so smooth and buttery–even the ones with shimmer! No need to worry about patchiness; these glide on like a dream and stay all day (with the help of a little primer). Fallout is minimal, if any at all–yes, the shimmers don’t make a mess!
You can easily create a natural or smokey look with Rooftop Bronzes. It may be a small palette, but the quality is legit. I will have to check out the other palettes in this line!
If you have dry or combination skin, a dewy foundation is a must for the colder months–the harsh weather can pull the radiance from your face. The L’Oreal Infalliable Pro-Glow Foundation is one of my go-to products during fall and winter!
This foundation infuses my face with the perfect amount of glow without looking too shiny. I do set my face with powder after I apply this foundation though; it keeps the unwanted shine at bay!
I also love that it comes in a mess-free squeeze tube that is ideal for travel. The formula is light and breathable, while still being buildable. It doesn’t break me out–and I have acne-prone skin.
I have just purchased my third tube of this stuff. It is definitely a staple in my collection and a great option for drugstore foundation!
I just mentioned the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed in my last blog post, but I LOVE it so much…I’m just going to talk about it again!
I know it doesn’t look like much in the pan, but Exposed is SO gorgeous on your cheeks. It gives you the perfect pink flush without being too bold, rosy or red. It looks like your natural flush, but slightly better…know what I mean?
I know $29 seems like a little much to spend on a pink blush, but I assure you that it is worth it! Exposed is fool-proof and it goes with practically every makeup look. Dramatic, everyday, red lips, nude lips, whatever!
Seriously, invest in this blush. You won’t regret it—I promise.
Lastly, we have ColourPop Matte X Lippie Stix in Daydream. I ordered this a couple months ago knowing that it would be perfect for fall! The packaging markets this lipstick as being a dark, nude pink. But in person, I would describe Daydream as a tawny rose shade with a brown undertone.
My favorite thing about Daydream is the incredible formula. This lip color is highly pigmented,; yet it applies with ease, like butter! Most of the time, bold lipsticks tend to drag and dry out the lips. But not this one.
Daydream is unique because it’s appropriate for fall, but it’s not “scary bold.” If you’re curious about trying a darker lip color, I suggest Daydream. It’s not too vampy or brown-toned; the perfect in-between shade!
Hope you all enjoyed this post! Selecting the right fall makeup can be tricky, because you don’t want to go too overboard with bold lips or eyes. These products just help you ease into the trends. 🙂
