Makeup Picks for Fall

I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that Fall is the most colorful season of the year, especially in my little corner of Oregon, and that I get the MOST creative with my makeup looks in the Fall.  There’s no denying the beauty of all the rich colors, cooler weather, hot coffee, and large knit sweaters with scarves.  And plaid.  All the plaid.

Here are my favorite picks for Fall makeup this season.  I am loving a full range of purples, bronze-y browns, and pinks that have a very orange undertone.  Forgive my pictures, I was having a difficult time getting results that showed the true colors of the eyeshadows.


I could NOT pull off the matte lip trend.  My lips are constantly too dry and no matter how beautiful my lips looked when I initially applied, it went bad fast.  I’m a lip gloss girl, and I’m over the moon it’s coming back around.  I also like to keep creamy lipsticks around and I occasionally sneak in a matte (gasp!) crayon I layer under gloss.  That bottom lip gloss….I layer that over pretty much EVERYTHING!  The color is too pretty to put down.  These are the products I love for fall this year:

Continuing on the purple and pink-orange theme, these are the blushes I’ve been using to flush out my cheeks lately.  The top one feels a little bit like a cheat because it’s pretty new to my collection.  But it’s quickly becoming one of my favorites.  As for the other one, the left shade got me through summer but for fall I’m counting on the middle and right shades!

Eyes are my favorite.  I’m going to go out on a limb and say they’re the best feature on my face…and I like my face 😉   I’ll start off thinking, “I’m gonna do a simple eye look today!” But then I pick another shade and keep blending.  Over-the-top eyes are my thing I guess, just like my personality.  My eyes are brown, but in the right light they almost look green so purple and shimmery browns are my go-to this Fall with some olive-green thrown in because…well, my eyes.   Again with the purple (am I getting too repetitive yet?)  I’ve picked out my favorite Fall eyeshadow colors from my collection, and I think they’ll pair well with a range of skin tones and eye colors.
