Natural BASIC Fall Makeup Look 2016

This makeup look can only be described with the word BASIC. Cranberry and gold eyes, golden highlight, and a berry lip- replicate this look and you'll be identical to all the bloggers, youtubers, and instagramers! All jokes aside though, this has been one of my favorite daily looks. The eyes aren't crazy dramatic (I don't add the falsies on a daily basis).If you haven't seen enough tutorials on this look yet on blogs and youtube, keep reading!

I started of this look with eyes to avoid getting fallout on my face makeup. I primed my eyes using eye primer. Then I used the mid tone browns in the 5 color Paula Dorf palette pictured below in my crease to begin adding definition. Next I added deeper browns in the crease to amp up to definition in that area, and after that I added the almost black-purple shade from the 10 color Born Pretty Store Palette, also pictured below. I concentrated this color mostly on the outer corner of my eyes and blended the remaining product into the crease. Then I took a sparkly black eyeshadow and ran it along the outer corners of my lower lash line. Finally, I placed the terracotta color, and the gold color on my lid (mixed together).

I finished off the eyes with liquid eyeliner with a baby wing, mascara, and false eyelashes.

The face was pretty simple as well. I primed my face, applied foundation and concealer, and applied my blush and highlight. Then I warmed up my face and contoured with a powder foundation darker than my skin tone. Then I finished the look with a loose powder which muted the color of the blush, highlighter, and contour shades. This really made the look more daytime friendly.

I finished off the whole look with a lip treatment which I put on before my matte, berry lip color!
