Today I am creating a look that uses all affordable beauty! I wanted to create a look that will transition us to fall and is easy to do! I am trying a couple of new finds from Walmart and staple affordable products from Walmart!
First I prep my skin with the Loreal Infalliable Pro-Matte Primer. This is great if you have oily skin because it will help you stay matte all day! I have pretty normal to combination skin but living in Texas I sometimes need something help my foundation stay matte and this is the perfect primer!
Next I try a new tinted moisturizer by Burt’s Bees. It is the Goodness Glows Tinted Moisturizer and I am going to pair it with the Loreal Infalliable Fresh Wear Foundation to get a little more coverage. The tinted moisturizer has a thicker consistency. I apply it with my fingers to see how it blends and to see what kind of coverage it gets. It has very sheer coverage and gives a slight tint to the skin and doesn’t offer much coverage. It evens my skin out a bit and adds some brightness. It looks very natural and gives my skin a little bit of a glow! Because I am adding foundation I am going to give the moisturizer some time to set and apply my concealer first.
For concealer I use the Loreal Infalliable Fullwear Concealer. I love this concealer! It gives great coverage and is very hydrating and does not leave the undereye looking dry and amplify texture. I use the shade 350 Bisque. I apply it with the BK Beauty 108 brush. It has been my go-to lately and because it isn’t designed for concealer I apply it by pressing the concealer into the skin. I also apply some to my eyelid so it can work as my eyeshadow primer. I think if you blend the tinted moisturizer with the concealer it may give you just enough coverage!
I want a little more coverage so I use the Loreal foundation but I will apply the smallest amount using the sponge to get a little more natural application. I start on the perimeter of the face to avoid putting too much product on. I love this foundation because it is long-wearing and gives natural to medium coverage. It’s so beautiful!
For blush, I’m trying a new cream blush that I picked up from Walmart and I’m really excited to try this I have been all over the cream blush bandwagon, especially now that we’re transitioning into fall. As we get into winter, I think cream blushes are perfect for the skin because our skin tends to dry out it gets more dehydrated the climate changes it gets colder and drier air so a cream blush is really going to give that life back to your skin. This is by the brand Found Beauty and it’s their nourishing cream blush tint. And this is the shade Petal Flesh. It’s a really pretty pinky peach shade the formula has some nice pigment to it.
I’m actually going to be using this blush on my lips later as well. So we are actually take what’s on my finger since I have it here and I’m going to apply it right there on my cheeks. I like to smile and apply it right where the cheek pops. And then I’m going to take my foundation brush that I was using, you can also actually can blend it in with your finger if you want. I like to use a brush though because I feel like I get a little bit prettier, softer natural blend. And I’m just going to kind of press until that looks like it’s just with one with the skin. Okay, and then it now that I’ve gotten most of it off my finger, I’m going to go on with the brush and we’re just going to go straight into the product and apply. This blush is nice because is pretty foolproof, you can really, I feel like it’s hard to apply too much of this. You can really share it out and get a natural look or you can layer it if you want a little bit more, I kind of want a little bit more. So we’re going to go in and layer this.
Basically, the way to work with cream blush is to apply the level that you want. If you feel like you get a little too much, all you really have to do is just kind of bounce your brush or your sponge or your finger whatever tool you’re using over it and over and it’s going to really share it out and make it look really natural. And I like this blush because it has a little bit of a glow, but it’s not real shiny, it’s not real liquid-y which is nice. If you are you know wearing a mask a lot throughout the day, you want something that isn’t going to be too creamy on the cheeks. And of course you can always set it with a little bit of loose powder. You don’t want to do too much, but just kind of lightly set a little bit of loose powder on top of it and that’s also going to help kind of lock the blush into the skin so that it doesn’t try to transfer so much if you wear a mask.
Okay, moving right along to eyes. I do have a little bit of a brow gel and from earlier but I’m going to go in and just kind of softly fill in my brows and I’m using my NYX Precision Brow Pencil. This is my go to brow product. I love it I am the shade “Taupe.” I’m just going to kind of fill in right in the front of my brow. Then fill in the any areas that need it. I did get my brows micro-bladed several months ago so it’s nice that I don’t have to do too much to them when I’m putting makeup on.
Okay, for the eyes, we’re going to use the Maybelline 24 Karat Nudes Palette. I dug this out of my collection. I’ve had it for a while. It’s just a really nice kind of basic neutral palette but it definitely has some pops of color with purple and green. I feel like you can really create a variety of looks from this palette. I’m going to go in first and we are going to apply the brow highlight shade. We’re going to go on underneath a brow and I use a brush that is really going to pick up a lot of product.
I go in and grab a little bit of the whitest shade from the palette and mix it with the brow highlight. This shade is this like a kind of vanilla shade, but it has a little, I want it to be a little bit brighter. So I’m going to mix the two together, I don’t want it to be as white as the white shade is, but I want to brighten up this so I’m going to grab them both.
Next, I’m gonna zoom you guys in a little bit closer, so we can see that I work in more detail. So I’m going to go in with a shimmery bronze shade. And we’re going to dust this all over the lid and kind of blend it into the crease. And for that, I’m going to use a tapered blending brush, something that can blend but it also is tapered so I can really kind of pick up color and deposit it. And we’re going to load up the side of the brush with this product, the side and the tip. And we are just going to go and apply this to the eyelid. And I’m pretty much going to play it all over. But I’m going to keep the inner corner a little bear so that I can brighten that up with another color here in just a second. I’m going to keep this look pretty simple and I’m going to keep the actual steps really simple, easy to follow and minimal.
So I’m just layer the bronze color on the outer corner and kind of blending it in. And then I’m going to take whatever’s left and diffuse it up into my crease. What’s important here is that the first place you put your brushes actually on your lid, you don’t want too much of this into the crease, especially if you’re like my skin tone are a little bit lighter. If you’ve got deeper skin, then you know you can be a little heavier in the crease with this, but I don’t want this to be too heavy in the crease. And this is a bit of a darker shade than I like to use in my transition. So I just kind of want what’s left on my brush to make its way up there. But I don’t want to apply a lot in the crease if that makes sense. So really pretty kind of taupey smoky bronze.
Once I’ve got all the product up, then I’m going to turn my brush upside down, go in little circles back and forth and kind of do the windshield wiper motion. That’s how I was taught many many years ago about how to blend in the crease do a windshield wiper motion, it stuck with me! It’s funny how things like that just stick with you forever. Then I’m just going to go and kind of layer it make everything look well even. So you can see that this gives a pretty like taupey deep, smoky eye and this is just really one shadow, we’ve really only applied one shadow on the lid.
Next I want to go in and brighten up the inner corner. So I’m going to go in I’m going to use this a silvery pewter shade. We’re going to pack that onto the inner corner. I am going to stick with the same brush, we’re going to keep things really simple today. So I’m just going to pick that up on the side and the tip and we’re gonna pack that on right here in the inner corner. The tip of this brush is really nice to get right there in the inner corner of the eye. I’m going to pack it and then kind of blend it into the deeper shade.
What are some of your favorite makeup techniques to change when we hit fall? I know for me in the summer I’m wearing a lot lighter weight foundation. I’m also wearing kind of more bronze gold shades and the fall I tend to go a little bit more with like a natural matte foundation, or I shouldn’t say that because I like a natural matte foundation year round, but I tend to look for something with a little bit more of a kind of a makeup look. You know, I feel like the Fall is really a fun time to glam it up a bit. You know in the summer we spent a lot of time outside depending on where you live, it’s likely a hotter time of the year. So I usually keep the eye makeup a little lighter in the summer and come fall and winter. I kind of have fun dolling it up a little bit.
I do want to add a little bit of this mossy green shade right here to my look! I’m just going to add it and use the same brush you guys we are using pretty much one brush for this entire look. I’m going to grab a little bit of that mossy green shade and we’re going to pack it on the outer corner right here to deepen that bronze shade. Because all of these shadows that I’ve used so far have a shimmer to them, it’s really going to create that kind of sultry, smoky look where all the shades kind of blend together, there’s not really a lot of, you know, harsh lines or definition between all of them.
Next, I want to deepen the lash line. So I’m going to take the matte black that is in the palette, and I’m going to take a tiny little angle brush, and we are going to create eyeliner and a little bit of a winged liner with this shadow. I’m going to really load this brush up so that it’s covered in products, I’m going to tap it off, since it’s black, I don’t want a lot of fall out, I don’t want it to fall and ruin my concealer, that’s really hard to clean up. And then I’m just going to kind of press this into my lash line and I’m going to start in the outer half, so I’m not starting an inner corner, I really don’t want black there because of my eye shape when my eyes are open, you don’t really see that if I put black liner there, it’s going to cover that hole part of the lid. And I don’t want that. So I’m just going to keep it on the outer half. I pull it out a little bit and then I’m going to thicken the outer corner a little bit by connecting more my natural lash line is to where the end of the wing is. Pull it up like that perfect for the lower lash line because the upper lid is pretty dark, I want to keep it a little brighter. So I’m going to go in with this guy kind of gold, the bronze shade right here. And we are going to kind of just smoke out that lower lash line. I don’t really want to use anything dark down there because I want to like I said I want to brighten it up. And I’m just using a pencil brush and we are first going to just kind of sweep this across. See how that looks, we might add a liner. If I feel like we need a little more definition so I’m going to go back in and we’re going to take a kind of a smaller brush that’s going to deposit a little more color. And we’re going to go in with this matte brown right here. It almost looks black, but it’s a really dark chocolate brown. We’re going to go in with that shade. And we’re going to concentrate that on the outer half of the lower lash line. So we’re going to start right here in this outer corner. And we’re just going to sweep it back and forth, back and forth until we get about middle of the lash line.
Having that gold down first is going to soften this a little bit if I had gone in straight with the dark brown and I didn’t have that softer shimmery shade down as a base, it would make this look a lot more harsh and it would be harder to blend into the lashes. And then the last thing you can do is just take that pencil brush that you use for the gold and just run it over the two shades just to make sure that they’re really nicely blended together. Every time I do my eyes I have to keep going back and forth with a little brush to sweep away any fall out sometimes it’s hiding there you don’t even see it. But as it sits there under your on your concealer foundation throughout the day you look in the mirror and you’re like where did all that darkness come from.
Next, I’m going to top my lashes with a little bit of mascara. This is the Essence Get Big Lashes and I’m going to just kind of pop it on the tips of my lashes and on the lower lash line.
I’m really liking the way this blush looks. It looks so so natural. Okay, moving right along for lips. I grabbed one product that is going to work as my lip color and my gloss. It is the Milani Amore Shine Liquid Lip Color. This is like a hybrid of a lipstick and a gloss it has a lot of shine to it but it also has a lot of color. So there’s really no need to wear a lipstick underneath it because it’s going to kind of conceal anything you put underneath it but it also gives you that shine. So I love it. It’s a great kind of go to one and done product. I also really like the point on the applicator. Cuz you really can kind of line the lips with it. And because the formula is leans a little on the thicker side doesn’t really move a whole lot. And then I just pressed together to get a nice kind of even look.
I love this look! It’s so simple but it’s definitely a look that you could transition from day to night. It’s easy and quick so you can get it done in the morning but it can also take you to a zoom call that you might have or let’s say you’re going to do a virtual zoom happy hour later. You can certainly wear this I feel like the makeup is very versatile. I definitely feel like it’s kind of transitioning from that light summery look into a little bit more fall glam. I hope you guys enjoyed this video. Thank you guys so much for spending your time with me. I know our time is so precious. So I want you to know that I really appreciate the time you spend here with me.
