Fall Beauty Essentials - Guest Post

Hello everyone! x

Today I'm doing a collaboration blog post with Juliana Grace. I am giving you my fall makeup essentials and she will be sharing her fall fashion essentials. You can check out her post on my blog.

Matte Foundation
When switching from summer to fall, I tend to toss away my BB creams and search for a matte foundation. My personal favorite is Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup by Clinique. It retails for approximately $23. It was completely worth it. 

Correcting Concealer
If you've read my blog before, you already know that I am completely obsessed with the SkinClearing Blemish Concealer by Neutrogena. It retails for $8.99. I find that it's slightly expensive for a drugstore concealer, but it most certainly does a fantastic job at concealing any imperfections on my skin. 

Shine ControlPowder
Right now my favorite powder for every season is Healthy Skin Pressed Powder by Neutrogena, which is $11.99 in stores and onlineI love this product. It wipes away shine in an instant. Usually, if I'm feeling oily throughout the day I use a Clean and Clear Oil Absorbing Sheet and quickly dust this powder on my face with a brush.

Plum Blush
A plum colored brush sets the tone for autumn by a far. My favorite high end blush is bareMinerals READY Blush in the shade The Indecent Proposal. It's a nice berry color which compliments my fair skin tone.

Dark lips
These are a must for fall and winter. I love vamping up my lips. They certainly make a statement without overdoing it. For those nights out, I tend to lean towards a classic red lip; T-Swift inspired of course. You can use any lip product you want- if you're not comfortable with a bold lip, apply a sheer gloss.

Smokey Eyes
When I'm not wearing a bold lip color, I love to bring the attention to my eyes. (I sometimes wear glasses, so it's important to me that my blue eyes don't hide behind my frames.)

A subtle amount of color can easily amplify your look. For the fall, I tend to lean toward these copper tones, just because they add a nice amount of warmth to my face. Try Maybelline's Eye Studio Color Tattoo Pure Pigments Loose Powder Shadow in Bold Gold for that hint of color as a base. Simply dust a deep copper/brown into your crease and outer corner for that daytime smokey eye.

To complete the eye look, I recommend curling your lashes and applying 1-2 coats of mascara on to your upper and lower lashes. 

I'm not very good with eyeliner, so I don't even bother with it.

I recommend choosing one feature to play up on your face: eyes, lips, or cheeks.

To top it all off, apply a dark nail polish to your nails. I love this subtle sparkle in this. It's still bold, but the glitter adds that feminine touch that every girl desires. 

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed this post. It was so much fun collaborating with Juliana and I hope to do it again in the near future.
