Coming to a close soon, AH! I figured for this post I’d try something really new; I’ve been seeing a bunch of people do this lately, and I wanted to give it a go, so I’m sharing with you my everyday fall makeup. I am not a super talented makeup artist, I literally just like not looking like a goblin when I leave my house everyay. I’d like to get better, but for now, I’m just pretty average. Still going to share it anyway, but just with the disclaimer that it’s pretty average.
Most days I use my Urban Decay Ultimate Basics palette, which just has a bunch of really beautiful matte colors (Thanks for the best Christmas gift ever, Gab!!!). Even when it varies based on specific shades, the essence of what I do everyday is the same. What can I say, I’m a creature of habit.
So here’s an eye makeup-less Kate. I am wearing foundation, and I combed out my eyebrows and such, but that’s about it.
It’s a really easy look, okay? First, I just put a light champagne across my lid and in my inner corners (in the palette it’s called Blow), and then go over the outer half of my lid with matte peachy brown (called Nudie). I take a medium, warm matte brown (Faith) into my crease, but not too exact. It’s more of a widespread sweep of color. Then, I use a dark matte brown directly into my crease in almost a harsher line to make it stand out more (but it’s not actually harsh? I told you I was bad at this). Usually I drag a little of that color down on my lower lashline too.
Then I usually do some really thin eyeliner and a couple coats of mascara, and we end up here:
I usually do bronzer, blush, and a highlight most days because I’m an extra bitch, but that’s just me. So I’ll do a quick all over bronze, a light blush on the apples of my cheeks, and a highlight on my cheekbones, brow bones, tip of my nose, and cupid’s bow. Then I put on whatever lipstick I’m feeling that day, and that’s pretty much it. (Yesterday I was really feeling like an extra bitch so I went with my new, super dark violet-red lip).
And that’s basically it!
It’s not a super crazy look, it’s not hard, and I’m terrible at taking these pictures, BUT I tried something new that made me a little uncomfy so we are just going to roll with it and that’s that.
Anyway, I’ll talk to y’all tomorrow for the LAST day of Blogtober! WOW!
