During the fall, I’m all about nourishing formulas that provide a bit of a blur and coverage to my complexion. One of my favorites, and a perfect fit for what I’m looking for, is the ILIA True Skin Serum Foundation in SF2 Tavarua. This foundation evens out my skin tone while still feeling very lightweight and hydrating. It has a skin-like finish and looks beautiful day and night. I’m still able to see my post-summer freckles while enjoying the “my skin, but better” look!
In the cooler months, I tend to experience redness around my nose and cheeks, so I add a few dots of the Hynt Beauty Duet Perfecting Concealer in Light to these problem areas and to my under eyes to disguise any darkness. I find that this concealer provides great coverage and works for multiple areas of the skin. Next, I use the Hynt Beauty Finishing Powder to set everything in place, directing most of my attention to my under eye and T-zone area.
Even though it’s fall, applying just a touch of bronzer to warm up the complexion and add some structure to your look is still a good idea! The W3LL PEOPLE Bio Baked Bronzer is my current favorite! With a light touch, I apply it to the hollows of my cheeks, over my temples, and under my jawline. This bronzer has an ultra-smooth formula and provides a very natural color with soft matte radiance—perfect for the fall season.
In my mind, glowy skin is always in. I add the Alima Pure Mineral Highlighter in Whisper to my cheeks and Cupid’s bow to add some luminosity to this look. It’s incandescent and brightening, and works great for daytime looks to achieve a youthful, healthy radiance. Next, it’s time to add some color. I absolutely love dusty rose shades for fall, like the Ilia Multi-Stick in At Last. This product seamlessly blends into the skin thanks to a soft, buttery texture that instantly melts upon contact. More good news? This formula works great on cheeks, lips, and eyes! Which brings me to…
I couldn’t really use a multipurpose product on just one area of my face, could I? I apply the same Ilia Multi-Stick on my lips! It matches the cheeks perfectly and the formula feels nice and nourishing. This product was created with a delicious cocktail of beautifying oils and will leave your lips soothed and protected. Plus, it’s super easy to reapply on the go!
I use the Plume Nourish & Define Brow Pomade in Ashy Daybreak, which is my go-to for natural-looking, long-wearing eyebrows!
For my cranberry eye makeup look, I start by applying shade #5 from the W3LL PEOPLE Taupe Nudist Palette in my crease. It’s a gorgeous deep, chocolatey shade that defines the eye nicely and provides a little bit of warmth. This palette features five neutral hues, formulated with a proprietary blend of botanicals to achieve velvety textures, rich colors, and serious staying power! This shade is high pigment and matte, so make sure to blend well!
Now it’s time to play with the fall hues. Kosas 10-Second Liquid Eyeshadow in Fahrenheit has been my makeup crush for weeks now! This shade is absolutely gorgeous, it blends easily, and once it sets it doesn’t move or lose its pigmentation (my longest wearing test was 18 hours long and this shade STILL looked beautiful when I took it off). Dare I say it’s perfection in a tube? Yes!
I use a fluffy flat brush to blend the eyeshadow. I focus most of the color on my eyelid, just slightly overlapping with the crease. Then I apply a second layer close to the lash line using a “tapping” motion to deposit the maximum amount of pigment! This eyeshadow formula makes this step so incredibly easy and fast, which is great for when you’re in a hurry! I finish the eyes with two coats of the Ere Perez Avocado Waterproof Mascara on both upper and lower lashes. This volumizing mascara is formulated to stimulate growth and strengthen lashes. It is also waterproof, smudge-proof, and it does wonders for my straight eyelashes, as it holds curl incredibly well!
And there you have it! An autumnal cranberry makeup look that will easily boost your mood on gloomy days and elevate your fall sweater/flannel looks to a whole new level. Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year and I hope recreating this makeup look will help you enjoy it to the absolutely max!
