Matte Nude Fall Makeup Tutorial

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.

Products

Review and swatches of STELLAR Limitless Foundation in S20, Alima Pure Bronzer in Trinidad, Glossier Haloscope in Topaz, Clove + Hallow Lip Velvet in Cupcake, Lily Lolo Black Vegan Mascara. Five Product Face.

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.
