With Fall being here it means pull out the warm and fuzzy clothes and all the fun, Fall makeup too. I love doing Fall looks, but I also like products that won’t break the bank.
I also have a new Fall makeup tutorial on my YouTube where I go through all of my steps in more detail!
Now, more than ever, it is important that you keep your skin healthy and hydrated, especially in the Fall and Winter months. Skin prep is not only important for how your skin looks bare, but under makeup as well.
I always like to start with these base products to prep my skin. I do some light chemical exfoliation to remove dead skin sitting on the surface of my skin and then go in with these moisturizers. I use these nearly everyday and ALWAYS talk about them on my YouTube as well!
I prep my skin with each of these items in this order:
-exfoliate with The Ren Ready Steady Glow
-Apply Niacinimide from The Ordinary
-Apply CeraVe PM Moisturizer (even in the day time)
-Apply the eye cream
-Top it all off with SPF (DON”T FORGET THIS STEP!!)
Just as important as the skin prep, you have to make sure you are choosing the best base products to accentuate your features-not cover them up or cause you to look cakey. I recommend going with something that is a little more hydrating and then using a small amount of powder to set anything that you feel is too shiny!
Remember, it’s better to be too glowy than too matte if you have more mature skin.
These are my favorite base products!
I picked each of these base products because I think they are the best for every skin type.
The Bare Minerals stick foundation can easily built up to give you a lot of coverage, but it still looks really natural and feels light on the skin. Plus, it comes in tons of shades!
The D-Bronzi serum is a bronzing serum that you can mix in with your facial lotion or your foundation. I always mix it with my lotion and it gives a really nice, bronze and healthy look to my skin. It also provides a nice base for foundation on concealer on top. I usually use this and then put the concealer on top!
This Neutrogena concealer has recently become my FAVORITE ever for facial concealer- not really for my under eyes. It looks so nice and natural on the skin and gives great, medium coverage but feels very light.
This Maybelline BB Cream is great if you want something quick to put on and get out the door. I rub it it in with my fingers and then throw on my concealer and I am ready for the day! It gives light coverage, but just enough to even out the skin. And it never looks cakey!
This Glossier concealer has been my favorite for years. It’s nearly all I talk about on my YouTube because its just that good. It also lasts for a really, realllyyy long time. It looks SO GOOD under the eyes and it also makes any under eye creases look plump instead of making them look worse!
This Charlotte Tilbury blush is a bit pricey… which I hate. But to be quite honest, there is no blush like it. It looks wonderful on every skin tone and It somehow blurs out your skin too. It is a beautiful color to use all year and that is exactly what I do. I have used the same one for almost 2 years and I have never hit pan… It’s just really good.
All of these eye products are perfect for Fall!! I like using warmer tones and find this time of year is the best time to use them. I have linked a ton but my favorite one is under $8.. The Maybelline City Mini Palette in ‘Cocoa City.’ It has the best colors and pigment, especially for the price. Here is the Maybelline one, and I will leave the others down below 🙂
Isn’t this the most popular thing in the Fall? The dark and vampy colors? I like those, but I also love the nude looks, the glosses, and red lips. So, here are some of my favorites!
