Fall means hayrides, pumpkins and crisp air.

But more importantly, it means that you can finally wear dark colors on your lips and tips again.

That makes me happy.

I am teaching a fall makeup class this coming Thursday. As a preview I posted this pic of the look my students will be learning and it caught like wildfire. There were lots of questions so I am here to answer them for you guys!

The lip color I used in the photo is Sephora’s Cream Lip Stain in #13, “Marvelous Mauve.” It’s GORG and I can’t wait to rock it all season. I originally made the trip to Sephora to pick up Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick in “Lolita” but my store were sold out, which actually turned out to be a good thing since it led me to discover these amazing cream stains. Nonetheless, Lolita looks just like this color above and it is also super pretty, so I linked it below for you guys incase you wanted to check that one out too!

There were also TONS of questions about my foundation. I have on L’Oreal Pro Matte in #102. This is a pretty thick, full coverage formula. Some days I apply with a damp Beauty Blender if I want less coverage. Other times, like in this photo, I apply with a stippling brush.  As far as drugstore foundations go, this one has been a constant favorite.

One of the most important steps is to prime your skin before you apply foundation. I love Hourglass’ primer because it feels so smooth and it is not sticky like many silicone-based primers.

Check out all the products I used to create this look. If you have any beauty related questions feel free to get in touch on Facebook or Instagram!
