Fall Makeup Favorites
It is that time of year again, the leaves are changing and sweaters with boots are a must, yes it is fall! This time of year is my second favorite, a close first to winter. Yes, I know, winter, right? I love winter! I know it is not the normal season to love but everything about winter makes me very happy. Besides sweaters, boots, warm coffee, pumpkin patches and Halloween, I am in love with fall makeup trends. I adore dark colors, the different shades of browns, burgundy, orange and my favorite red.
I wanted to share a few of my must have makeup products in the fall. When we want to stay in bed longer these are the three must haves to grab and look fab!
My first fall favorite is…
NYX Butter Lipstick in MoonLit Night. NYX is extremely affordable and I love the texture of this lipstick. It is so creamy, like butter HaHa! It has a silky, satin finish. My favorite part of this lipstick is the color! It is a beautiful wine/deep burgundy color. This color has been a top pick for my fall bridal parties. I have had a lot of bridal parties choosing burgundy colors this year. Every single bridesmaid that lets me choose this color for them loves it! I always have another bridesmaid coming back asking for that same color “she has on!” The picture online does not do this color justice. Online the lipstick looks as if it has more red tones in the color but in person this lipstick has more purple tones.
My second fall favorite is…
Makeup Geek Eye Shadow in Cabin Fever. This is a matte eye shadow with deep red/brown tones. Makeup Geek Cosmetics describes it as chestnut brown. I love this color! I personally wear this color a lot. I had a fellow makeup artist compliment me on this color and how it made my eyes stand out. It is gorgeous on everyone. It has that deep rich color for fall and it works well in the outer corner of the eyes. It will make all eye colors pop! Makeup Geek eye shadows are becoming my favorite eye shadows, they are very well pigmented. Their company is also paraben and cruelty free. You can purchase Makeup Geek as pans and place them into Z-Palettes or you can buy palettes pre-made or customize your own. Makeup Geek pans are $6 and they have a ton of shadows to choose from!

My third fall favorite is…
Viseart Theory Highlighter, Blush, & Bronzer! Honestly this is just a favorite all year! You could use this palette any time of year, especially summer time when we like to wear less makeup. Personally I have darker features and I love to express my natural look and this is what I grab! On these cool fall mornings when you just want to stay in bed, and you do, well now you are running late getting to work, you don’t have time for the full face of makeup. This is your go to kit. This palette comes in a compact case with your facial essentials. It fits perfectly in your purse for on-the-go touch ups. You have blush, bronzer and highlighter all lined up next to each other. It cannot get any easier than that! The bronzer and blush are a matte finish while the highlighter is the perfect amount of glow and shimmer. Viseart is a legendary makeup company. Their products are high end and well worth it. Viseart is highly pigmented and blended effetely. This will be more expensive but extremely worth it!
Above I am wearing Cabin Fever in my head shots and Viseart Theory. You can see the glow and shimmer perfectly in my checks. My eyes are not as dark as the bride above because I did not blend Cabin Fever with other dark shadows. I used it very lightly and blended just Cabin Fever with other light shadows to make my eyes pop but just enough, not too much. You can build heavy with Makeup Geek and get that gorgeous dark eye like my fall bride above or you can blend it out evenly to create stunning eyes for more professional occasions.
All I need is a little Makeup Geek eye shadow, Viseart Theory palette and NYX lipstick and I have the perfect fall look. These are my top three favorite products to grab this time of year! What are yours?
