Fall Face of the Day

I know it’s December but I’m still clinging to the last bits of Fall! It’s my favorite season! The big comfy scarves and sweaters, Ugg boots and deep colors just set my soul on fire. The weather has been so nice in Michigan these last few days so I decided to go for a nice Fall approach to my makeup today. Here’s what I used to achieve this look:

    • Milani Easy Brow pencil in Dark Brown
    • Sheer Cover duo concealer (conceal brows)
    • Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero
    • Ardell Lashes #105
    • Benefit They’re Real mascara (bottom lashes)
    • Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay concealer in Deep
    • Ben Nye Banana Powder (set concealer)
    • Sleek Contour Kit in deep
    • Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Stellar
    • La Femme blush in Russet
    • Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Wine Not
    • Loreal Infallible lip gloss in Barely Nude
