How To: Fall Makeup--All Drugstore (Plus Video!)

Hey you! Did you have a wonderful weekend? I'm still reminiscing about my birthday. I love celebrating, but hate getting older. Ugh! Anyway, today I have another Fall Makeup Look for you, and this one is all drugstore, making it very affordable. This is a more intense look, but I wear this to work and during the day comfortably. I hope you watch the 5 minute video below to see how I did it!

Products Mentioned:
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo in Rich Mahogany--Use all over the lid as a base.
  • Maybelline Natural Smokes in Stylish Smokes Quad--Use the taupe shade all over the lid. Use the brown shade in the crease. Place the darkest shade in the outer "v" and smudge underneath bottom lashes. Use the lightest shade as an inner corner highlight and to highlight underneath brows.
  • Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara--I swear this isn't a Maybelline-sponsored post! But I really love this mascara!
  • CoverGirl Ink It Liner--Line the upper lash line and waterline/tightline. Make the line thicker at the end of the eye and taper it as you get closer to the inner/tear duct area. Smudge with a Precision Q-Tip.
  • Wet N Wild Mellow Wine Blush--Use this to define cheekbones and add a slight bit of color to balance out the intense eyes and bold lips.
  • Revlon Lipstick Black Cherry--This is a very bold color, so apply it as usual and blot away with a clean finger, if desired.
