Pumpkin Spice Jewels
I don’t need you to assume I’ve been neglecting my pumpkin spice devotion, seeing as the way it’s now October, and subsequently formally pumpkin season.
SO MANY PUMPKINS EVERYWHERE. One can’t even whip her excessive pony with out bumping into one, and I nonetheless have mad love for pumpkin spice, as demonstrated by this look, which I name “Pumpkin Spice Jewels.”
A number of issues I discovered within the strategy of doing my make-up…
1. This Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino will shake you to the core
Or, ought to I say, “shake your core”? As a result of after I’d completed about half of it my physique actually began shaking from all of the caffeine.
I’d by no means had considered one of these earlier than. It’s only a pumpkin model of an everyday frap (like the opposite drinks I’ve tried on this sequence, I obtained the recipe from theMacroBarista on Instagram).
I may solely end half of it as a result of I couldn’t take any extra caffeine. I dunno… Possibly you’re manufactured from stronger stuff than I’m, but when not and also you’re additionally a wimp with regards to caffeine, you’ll be able to nonetheless admire it from afar (as a result of it’s actually good to have a look at).
2. I could have to construct an alter to worship Charlotte Tilbury
Her stuff is so spendy, however with regards to that easy, dewy skin-that-looks-like-skin, C.T. has that recreation on lock. I’m sporting her new Magic Away Liquid Concealer ($32) and Genius Magic Powder ($45) on this look, and I didn’t actually need to do any of the buffing, mixing and dabbing that’s normally concerned in reaching a no-makeup make-up look.
I simply swiped a concealer wand on my face (I’m sporting shade 8 beneath my eyes and shade 9 on the remainder of my face), blended with my fingers, then dusted a sheer veil of the powder with a fluffy brush, which took all of two minutes.
I really like how my pores and skin appears after I put on C.T.’s stuff. Like, I can’t even inform I’m sporting make-up, and it doesn’t budge. Not one bit.
3. Inexperienced liner + Purple lips + Gold glitter = completely works
Notice to self: Bear in mind this jewel-toned combo, as a result of it completely works with heat orange-brown shadows (I’m sporting the City Decay Born to Run palette, by the way in which).
I performed with shimmery inexperienced liner, purple metallic lips, and gold glitter on the lids right here as a result of I actually wished to “go for it” and do extra of a LEWK, but when I had been to translate this into one thing I’d put on to, say, the moms membership potluck I went to final night time (facet notice: The Dealer Joe’s Salted Caramel Brownies had been a hit), then I’d swap the metallic lipstick for a sheer purple gloss, line simply my higher lash line with the inexperienced (so no water strains), and do a tiny dot of the glitter within the interior corners.
If ya wanna recreate this look, I additionally used MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color in Atomized on my lips, rimmed my eyes with City Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Overdrive, and dabbed City Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Stargazer within the middle of my lids.
