What's in my makeup bag: Fall Edition

I love to write about what's currently in my makeup bag because I like seeing how my taste changes throughout the year. Lately I've been loving the graphic eye trend, wearing makeup that is a mixture of 60s mod with a sun kissed Gidget twist. For those who don't know, Gidget was a show about a cute surfer girl played by Sally Field.

Matte skin is the trend for this season and I've been loving Becca's Mineral Powder Foundation. Because this is mineral-based, my skin looks matte but with a slight luminosity. For reference, I use the shade Noisette and I currently have medium-tan skin. I like to also put a mattifying powder on my forehead and I've been loving Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder in 005 Silky Beige. YSL Touché Éclat has been my go-to for highlighting my face, mainly under the eyes, brows and a touch to my Cupid's bow. 

For my eyes, I like to add subtle definition to my crease and lower lash line with the darkest color in the Dior 3 Couleurs palette in Smoky Brown. I line my upper lash line with a liquid liner and I've been switching between Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner and Marc Jacobs Magic Marc'er eyeliner pen (review to come). Some days I wear a thin line with a slight flick while other days I like to wear a thick-lined lid with a dramatic wing. Of course, I always fill in my brows with my fave Hourglass brow pencil and add a couple coats of Maybelline mascara.

To keep the focus on my eyes, I keep the rest of my face simple. I like to add color to my cheeks with MAC Sheertone blush in Sunbasque and I usually top off my lips with whatever sheer pink lipstick I have in my purse (usually Dior or Josie Maran).

  9. Im glad matte skin is in as I have been using lots of face powder recently. I love that eyeshadow palette. Great colors. I have been opting for a slightly brighter lip recently because the weather is foul and I need a bit of color in my life. (Namely Clinique's chubby stick in grandest grape- I love it)
