Let’s be real, most of the time I am not wearing any make-up or very minimal. BUT when I have the occasion and time I prefer to have a bit of selection what to use. Here are some of my favorites for Fall.
Moisturizer: Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream I have repurchased this product at least 5 times. Perfect for colder weather as it keeps my dry skin hydrated. If you have combo or oily skin try the light version.
Base: Bourjois CC Cream (33 Beige) Much more hydrating than the usual foundations. That is why I like this CC Cream for the colder season. It’s easy to use and gives me very decent coverage. Very reasonable price point for a great quality product.
(Unfortunately only available in UK drugstores, get it online e.g. via asos)
Eye liner: Mac Pro Longwear Eye Liner (Powerline) A deep and intense liner in plum which doesn’t look harsh as a black liner. The formula is truly smudge-proof and long-wearing.
Concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer (Light/Neutral) I always need a concealer to look awake and this one does a perfect job. Great coverage, extremely lightweight and it won’t crease in the fine lines.
Eyeshadow: Tom Ford Eye Color Quad (13 Orchid Haze) I adore Tom Ford eyeshadows in general. They are all buttery soft and super easy to blend. The berry/taupe colors of this quad are perfect for fall. Very up in price but worth it for a beauty addict like me.
Bronzer: Benefit (Hoola) I am getting pale and paler. This bronzer is just perfect to warm up the complexion.
Blush: NARS (Deep Throat) The name of this blush is slightly irritating (sexual) like most of NARS’ names for their blushes. But I don’t mind! For me NARS makes the best blushes with the silky soft and long-wearing formular. Deep Throat is the perfect mix of coral and pink with a golden shimmer-sheen.
Lipstick: MAC lustre finish (Plumful) Lustre Finish is my favorite finish of all MAC lipsticks. Its on the sheer and glossy side and not drying. The name Plumful perfectly describes this lipstick and it gives me the perfect pop of color without looking overdone.
Nail Polishes: Essie (Chinchilly) and H&M (Plum Fool) I have to rave about the H&M nail polishes. When it comes to nail polishes I am really boring and would stick to two brands: OPI and Essie. However, H&M has just recently launched a huge cosmetic collection in the US and I was really drawn into the nail polishes because of the color selection. Let me tell you I am more than impressed with the quality. Great coverage, not streaky at all and so easy to apply due to the great brush.
