Today I'm sharing my everyday matte nude fall makeup look. You can watch the video above, see swatches and pics below, and read more about the products I used as I review them in the coming weeks.
I know a lot of people like to go dark and smoldering with their makeup in the fall, but I prefer to keep it light and simple. While in the summer I embrace a dewy look (because I have a naturally oily T-zone), once the weather cools down I like go a little more matte because my makeup doesn't break up as much.
I used five main products for this look, as well as a few optional ones.
Stellar Limitless Foundation in S20| $38 for 1 ounce | Vegan
A basic foundation with a satin finish. There's nothing spectacular about the formula; it's real strength lies in the wide array of medium and tan shades.
Alima Pure Bronzer in Trinidad | $24 for 4.5 grams | Vegan | Natural
A cool toned matte shade that I find perfect for contouring. It's not super pigmented - but that makes it super easy to use.
Glossier Haloscope in Topaz | $22 for 5.5 grams
My favorite everyday bronzer, this particular shade has the same depth of my skin so it looks super natural. I like to keep this one in my purse.
Lily Lolo Black Mascara | $20 for 7 mL | Vegan | Natural
This is quickly becoming my favorite clean mascara. It's better than most clean mascaras I've tried and gives conventional mascaras a run for their money.
Clove + Hallow Lip Velvet in Cupcake | $18 | Vegan | Mostly Natural
An increasingly popular cleaner matte liquid lipstick, I just had to pick it up and see what all the fuss was about. Although I'm not a big fan of matte liquid lipsticks, this does last alllllll day.
The swatches below are slightly misleading. Yes, the foundation is a little too dark for me, but the bronzer is the perfect contour shade. The bronzer looks super light in this image, but as you can see in photos it's a great, subtle contour shade. That's why I think that it's important to see both swatches and face shots when I do reviews.
Primer: Amazing Cosmetics Anti-Aging Primer
Brows: Glossier Boy Brow in Black and NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Black
Concealer: Cantecaille Correcting Pen in 8
Powder: Beauty Bakerie Yellow Flour Powder
Lip Pencil: Bite Beauty Lip Pencil in 040
The result was a very understated but supremely polished look. Perfect for work, dates, and most importantly, every day.
