Fashion Magazine: Transitioning Your Makeup Into Fall

Fashion Magazine Beauty Panel Challenge 101

Fall makeup often consists of smokey eyes and dark lips but for me it is sometimes hard to jump straight into fall mode after my ultra easy summer makeup routine.  Actually, who am I kidding? I am ALWAYS a fan of a quick beauty routine.  Typically, in the summer, my makeup ritual consists of tinted moisturizer, bronzer, mascara and a coral or pink lip.  Since by October my tan has faded and I need a bit more makeup to bring out my features, I like to add a few products for my transition into fall.

For this look I swapped out my lighter coverage tinted moisturizer for my fave Giorgio Armani Foundation, “Luminous Silk”.  This foundation gives the skin beautiful coverage without feeling heavy.  I lightly bronzed my skin with a matte bronzer and added subtle colour to the cheeks with a pink toned blush.  For the eyes I used a light beige shimmery cream shadow all over my lids and softly swept a brown shadow in my crease.  To make my eyes pop, I then lined with a brown liner and smudged into the lash line.  For lips I used the cult favourite, “Rebel” MAC lipstick.  I love this lipstick because it looks good on a variety of skin tones and is the perfect bright plum shade to ease your way into the darker shades of fall.

Products Used: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation “Shade 5”, Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage “#3”, Benefit Bronzer “Hoola”, Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blusher in “Love Glow”, Shu Uemura Cream Shadow in “P Beige”, Laura Mercier Eyeshadow in “Bamboo”, Charlotte Tilbury Rock ’N’ Kohl Liner, MAC Brow Definer in “Fling”, MAC “Clear” Brow Gel, MAC Lipstick in “Rebel”.
