THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY BOBBI BROWN.
My favorite season is here! Crisp air, leave foliage and everything pumpkin, your girl is a little too excited for it all! Fall makeup is supposed to be subtle but with a touch of the dramatic. Some classic favorites? Black eyeliner, rich red lips, and overall warm tones. I've been wanting to create a look that's not too difficult to do but at the same time, also super gorgeous and still quite natural. Think of a very underplayed smokey eye with a cherry autumn lip and some gold highlight glowy-ness. Which is why I'm thrilled to partner with Bobbi Brown to share this fall makeup look with you guys! Continue reading to learn about every single product we used to achieve this look along with a quick fun makeup video!
When I met Analise Traficante, the Bobbi Brown BDA & Brand Ambassador at Bloomingdale's in SoHo, during NYFW, I knew we had to work together! She and I instantly connected and along with her talent, her personality is what really drew me to her. Filming didn't even feel like work, but more like two girls just hanging out in our bedrooms (like teenagers) playing around with makeup. When I gave her my vision of the look I had in mind, she instantly got me. Say no more, she went with a very subtle smokey eye with hints of dark brown and purples along with a gorgeous rusty red lip and highlight to boot.
We used one of my favorite illuminating powders of all time: The Nude Finish Illuminating Powder from SS16. The warm, gold tones are perfect for transitioning from summer to fall makeup, plus I think warmer highlights for olive skin is more flattering than cooler tones in terms of overall skin complexion as well as hair (but we can talk about hair in a whole other post.) The color we chose for lipstick shade is called, "Burnt Cherry" in Bobbi Brown's newly launched Luxe Matte Lip Color Beauty. These luxurious matte lipsticks feature oil-infused powders and pure matte powder pigments that deliver full coverage, a comfortable, lightweight feel and 12-hour high-impact color.
Skin prep also included products from the Bobbi Brown line, such as their hydrating eye cream which has CHANGED my life. If you're looking something to rid of those bags, this magic potion in a jar IS IT! We also moisturized with face cream as well as a primer before setting in the foundation and concealer. Other favorites as well are the Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow Pencil in Dark Brown, the Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Chocolate Truffle, and the limited edition Camo Luxe Eye & Cheek Palette - A modern spin on iconic camo that features six matte, metallic and sparkle shadows for multidimensional eye looks, plus a light-reflective highlighting powder to instantly illuminate skin—all in one versatile palette.
