Easy Summer to Fall Makeup

I'm in a summer slump. I'm kinda over summer, but yet I'm not ready for fall (thanks, hot weather). And my makeup lately has been reflecting that--an in between. I wanted a little of that summer sparkle but with a darker lip like I normally wear in fall. Happy weekend and hope you give this a try!

For foundation, I wanted a satin finish--in between my dewy skin of summer and the matte skin for fall. I'm wearing Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation.

For eyes, I used the Sonia Kashuk's Eyes on Neutral Matte and Eyes on Shimmer palettes. Any neutral palette will do. Check out the video below for specific recommendations!

Use a flat shader brush and pat the gold shade all over the lid. I chose gold because I wanted that summer sparkle. Creepy eye pose, optional. ;)

For the transition shade, use a light matte peach. Apply with a crease brush into the crease and gently blend it out with a clean crease brush.

Take a crease brush and apply the warm chocolate brown in the outer corner. Use a clean crease brush and blend it out. Please see the video for more details.


Time for a little secret: instead of blending and blending with one shade, I then take a dark chocolate and make a tinier sideways V and blend it out.

Add liner, mascara, and brow highlight as desired. I used Loreal Telescopic mascara.

For blush, I used Tarte blush in Exposed. It is a nude and one of my year-round favorites.

I lined and filled my lips in a darker berry (Prestige in Fleur) and then placed Mac's Twig on top. Now these colors are way too dark for me, so to lighten things up, I added Mac's Sweet and Sour on top. The result is a pretty nude that isn't matte.
