When I sat down to do my makeup last night, I wanted to do something fall-ish because I’ve been pinning nonstop plaid/ pumpkin/ boots/ all that. It has been SO smokey here in Oregon from all the fires, and it basically looks like a cloudy fall day when I’m sitting at work in the cold AC. Then I step outside into 89 degree weather and get upset/ confused.
I really liked how this makeup turned out and I’m planning on wearing it a ton for some fun weekends I have coming up. Surprisingly I didn’t put false lashes on, which helped show off the bold wing. For once I was having a good natural lash day and rolled with that.
Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Copper Blush is a must have shade if you like colors like these. If you don’t like colors like these, this one might change your mind. The formula of these lipsticks is killer and so comfortable. After I put this makeup on I ate a BLT and the lip definitely needed a touch up, but nothing drastic. More on how much I love these lipsticks here. Another reason that I loved this look was because I used the Tartelette in Bloom Palette and used smokeshow to darken my outer crease a bit more than I usually wood, which made it feel more dramatic and good for a night out look. Whenever I put dark colors on my lid I go back in with a million more layers of warm medium tones to blend it out, which created a nice gradient from the dark outer corner to the inner corner highlight, where I used Taffy from ABH Sweets Glow Kit.

I know this look isn’t anything groundbreaking, but it made me feel confident and I used products I really love. It was nice to be reminded I don’t always need to go over the top with a bunch of glitter and falsies to get my makeup to look nice. Have a happy weekend!
P.S. Thought I would share something cool that happened this week- I commented on Nicole Cutler’s faves video about depotting the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe palette and she made a whole video based on my idea! She was nice enough to mention me and link my blog post about depotting the palette as well. Check her out! She does my favorite kind of makeup- grunge blown out warm eyeshadow looks!
