Although the weather is nowhere near fall-like, I’m already thinking about fall makeup looks. I tend to go for bolder, and darker looks in the fall and winter. I can still do a bold look in the summer, but it’s a bit harder when you’re sweating your makeup off in the heat. After looking at my makeup collection, I selected a few items that I love to wear during the fall and winter.
When it comes to palettes, my favourite is Too Faced’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar. This palette works all year round, but the darker colours look incredible in the fall with all the leaves changing colours. I tend to wear Rum Raisin and Frosting all over my lid during this time of year. A new addition to my makeup collection is the Modern Renaissance palette by Anastasia. The bold berry and orange colours are perfect for this time of year. I can’t wait to create some amazing fall looks with this palette.
Lipsticks are definitely my favourite part of makeup, and in the fall I love to wear extremely bold colours. I love dark berry colours, dark reds, and mauves. I have a warmer undertone, so these colours look really good on my complexion. However, I like to use cool toned lipsticks too during this time of year, just to try something different. The lipsticks I love for fall include:
1. MAC Diva (Matte)
2. MAC Amorous (Satin)
3. Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Afterdark (Comfort Matte)
4. Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Disturbed (Comfort Matte)
5. Maybelline Touch of Spice (Creamy Matte)
6. Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Lyin’ King
7. NYX Lip Lingerie in Exotic
8. Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in #40 Pink Tea
I still use my other makeup throughout the year, but these particular items are used more often during the fall and winter. What are some of your favourite fall makeup items?
