Everyday Fall Make-Up

A daytime subtle smokey eye is a must for me during Fall. Light brown shades are always easy to pull off during the day. So keep scrolling to find out I achieve my everyday Fall make-up.

First I started with the Maybelline 'Dream Fresh BB Cream' in the shade Medium. I love a BB Cream or tinted moisturizer for daytime make-up, it still allows your skin to breathe and gives you natural looking coverage. This is personally my favourite BB Cream to date. I love how light it feels and how fresh it makes my skin feel, also SPF is a must anytime of the year to protect that beautiful skin of yours!

My skin straight after I applied the BB Cream using a foundation brush. It leaves a natural dewy finish, if you don't always like a dewy finish then you can of course powder, which I will be doing in a couple of steps.

Next, concealer. I have personally always loved a stick concealer as I prefer a creamer concealer rather than liquid. I used my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to seamless blend my concealer in with my foundation. I always dampen my sponge too as it allows for easier blending.

Here is where I apply my concealer, I never do a contour for everyday just because I personally feel that it looks to heavy on my skin. So I place it in a triangle under my eyes, brow bone, in-between my brows, chin and my cupid's bow to conceal and give a subtle highlight.

After BB Cream and concealer I like to set all of my make-up so that it won't be moving around during the day.

Eyebrows are an everyday essential for me as I got a little pluck happy with my tweezers when I was younger and they have never been the same since! But they are getting better (thank you castor oil), so I can't leave the house without them filled in. Today I used the eyebrow pencil from 'Essence' in the colour blonde, for $3 this is too much of a good deal not to buy! It has a slight waxy texture to it so I actually sets your brow hairs in place too!

Seriously though my face looks so different when my brows are done.

Blush and bronzer is next, my favourite blush right now is the 'Too Faced Chocolate soleil' matter bronzing powder, I usually love a shimmer bronzer but I love the bronzer combined with 'Mac powder blush' in the shade 'Mocha'. These two combined make a perfect fall palette.

Can you tell that my eye palettes are very well loved? For eyes I wanted to keep in with the matte theme so I used the shade 'Buck' from the Naked 1 palette in my crease, I like to build this shade up gradually, I also smudged 'Buck' under my eye.

For eyeliner I used 'cocoa chocolate' from the Sephora collection, I always love to smudge my eyeliner with a brush to achieve that smoked out look. Brown eyeliner is a little less harsh than black so that's why I love it for everyday wear.

This. Mascara. Seriously. This is my No.1 drugstore mascara of all time! The formula is so incredible it lengthens and separates the lashes perfectly and builds up so well. I would 100% recommend this mascara for anyone!

Final step. Lips. I always love a glossy and nude shade lip. For liner I used Annabelle's lip liner is the shade 'natural rose'. I layered NYX butter gloss over the top in the shade 'Madeline', I love the consistency of this gloss it super hydrating and is long lasting.

So there is my everyday fall make up. I love all the nude shades combined and this look is very comfortable to wear daily.
