Fall Makeup Look: From Day to Night

Fall Makeup Look: From Day to Night

I hate Fall. So cold, so windy, and basic ‘fall’ makeup looks. So basic.

So here is a list of products I used for my basic fall makeup look:

IT Cosmetics CC Foundation

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer

NYX Bronzer

Fenty Beauty Highlighter (I just realized you can’t really see it) 🤨

And shades Enchantress and Star from Butter London’s Natural Goddess Eye Pallette

Trending Beauty: Euphoria Makeup Looks

Trending Beauty: Euphoria Makeup Looks

Euphoria makeup is the trending style of insta-glam inspired by the hit HBO show, ‘Euphoria’. It showcases modern day teenagers overcoming daily drama and typical high school scenarios.

BUT, their makeup is what’s hype. The head makeup artist for the show, Doniella Davy, uses ‘euphoric’ (or intense) makeup looks to portray the characters constant changing feelings.

Now, the makeup isnt always “intense” or extreme. But it’s not something I would want to wear during the day, unless I’m not giving a d-mn.

It’s usually associated with bright colors and glitter. But darker tones and simplistic looks are often used as well.

It’s a work of art. Sometimes abstract, minimal, or a canvas filled with emotion. Except it’s on your face. It’s pleasing to the eye when done in the right manner.

Take a look at these few Euphoria Makeup Looks:

BoxyLuxe September 2019 ($330 Value)

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter | Review

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter | Review

Ever since I purchased the Becca Highlighter in pressed powder form, I’ve been OBSESSED with the brand.

I’ve never been dissatisfied with BECCA, however I’ve never been “wowed” either. Call it my ‘safe brand’. It’s one of the few prestige brands that is actually worth the extra money for when you want something nice but don’t want to gamble.

For $41, you can purchase the full size liquid highlighter at Sephora. It’s a huge bottle, with a weight of 1.7 oz. (trust me, it’s a lot of product even for me)

I should have gotten the travel size, but there were only full size bottles in the store. And I do not enjoy waiting for makeup. When I want it, I need it pronto.

*Travel size is only $19 at Ulta

There are 5 shades to choose from:

I purchased moonstone, the most popular. Right away, you can notice a shimmery dewy glow when swabbing. It contains ultrafine, light-reflecting pearls that glisten in the sun. Giving you a ‘sunset’ glow.

Sometimes I mix this in with my matte foundation, if my skin is cooperating. (If you have bumpy skin don’t do this. It will pronounce the bumps a lot more in the sunlight).

You don’t need a lot to do the trick and the pump squirts out a lot of extra product I don’t need. (It’s very touchy)

I’m definitely going to buy this again, but in the travel size.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review

Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review

My first thought: Money. Is it really worth the $43 to test it out? (I was just in Ulta last week and spent $250)

Let’s just say I ended up buying $170 worth of makeup today with the foundation. Go figure.

The foundation though! It glides on seamlessly and is so easy to build coverage with out looking cakey. (I used a foundation brush) I only need one layer to conceal my pigmented skin. (Thank god)

What it’s suppose to do:

  • Oil-Controlling
  • Transfer-Resistant
  • Waterproof
  • Won’t Clog Pores
  • Long lasting
  • What it did for me:
    • Oil-controlling
      Transferred on everything
      Semi waterproof
      Doesn’t clog pores
      Lasted a long work shift

    Tip: I’ll mix in my liquid Becca Shimmering Perfector if I’m not feeling a matte base.

    I wouldn’t say this foundation lasts for 24 hrs, but it could. If you just didn’t move all day. But it beats all the other competitors so far.

    Definitely worth the $43, and will be using this daily!

    Luxury Lashes: $15 Lashaholic Review

    Luxury Lashes: $15 Lashaholic Review

    Strip lashes are either a hit or miss for most gals. They can look natural and perfect in photos, but in person they look like feather dusters (on me).

    I received these $15 Lashaholic Lashes in my Boxycharm (I was pretty bummed). Could have used a highlighter or anything else.

    I ran out of my individual lashes and ended up wearing these strips while I ran to the store.

    I wish they had a clear band instead of a thick black one, it definitely showed. And I felt the judgement. (I don’t wear eyeliner because of my hooded eye problem) The mascara didn’t even seem to help 😦

    If these were cheaper, I would recommend. But they’re not worth $15 per pair. (Or let alone $20, like their original price)

    Although, you almond eyed gals can rock these lashes!
