FULL COVERAGE MAKEUP

This is what I personally do every day. Because full coverage foundation everywhere covers but ages me. I feel pretty when I put it on in the bathroom but when I look at it in the car mirror, it makes my creases look deeper and my pores bigger. On the other hand, if I just wear regular foundation, my chin and my nose still are red, my sun spots are still glaring and any blemishes I might have aren’t covered. So here’s the beautiful compromise that I made. First I apply my favorite tinted moisturizer all over my face and neck to even out my skin tone enough and give me a glowing radiance. Then I pump a tiny bit of my favorite full coverage foundation and apply it only to the areas that I want more coverage. These areas are nowhere near my smile lines or creases so I don’t have to worry about it settling into them and making them bigger. Then I do a quick powder and a quick spritz of my favorite setting spray and go!

Most of us have a browbone highlighting pencil, right? Well, you must use it to do this too! You can think of it as contouring your lips: you lighten what you want to appear fuller and you shade the rest. Here’s how:

THE EYE POP

This is a subtle way to pop your eye color with colored mascara! But the trick is twofold. First you coat the lashes with the colored mascara, then you go back over them with black mascara, except you leave the pop of color at the lash base. If you have blue eyes, match the color with a blue mascara; green eyes, use a green mascara, and if you have brown eyes, you can use any color (purple, teal, blue, green, etc) because they won’t compete with it. You can also pair complementary colors like purple mascara with green eyes, copper with blue eyes, etc! Here’s how to do it with blue eyes:

FALL MAKEUP INSPIRATION

Every Fall I love researching what lip color is going to be the big shade of the season. We had the Oxblood Lip in 2014 and the Merlot Lip last year (which is still going strong this year). But this Fall, I feel like the pendulum is (finally) swinging from the heavy-handed Kardashian-style makeup to the other end of the spectrum: still adding a pop of color but in an “I don’t care” and more effortless way. And the best way to achieve it is fingerpainting it on, creating a non-stain stain look in the prettiest way possible. Here’s how:
