BEAUTY BAR: Fifty Shades of Gold

Fall is not only my favorite season for fashion, it is also my favorite season for makeup. Many college students don’t want to make the time commitment to applying makeup every day, however makeup application doesn’t always have to be time consuming. This Fashionista kept it simple by going with a natural makeup look that only took her 10 minutes to apply, allowing her to get to class on time while still looking good.

Many people are more susceptible to dry skin during the fall and winter, so this Fashionista always applies moisturizer five minutes before applying foundation to help with the application process and prevent foundation from sticking to dry skin. This Fashionista went for a natural, fall eyeshadow look using brown and gold shades from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette which is perfect for fall and winter.

Her favorite beauty tip is applying orange eye shadow to her cheeks before using blush in order to enhance the color. One of her most frequently used products is MAC Cosmetics’ Prep and Prime Fix+ Finishing Mist which helps pull the look together and enhance the eyeshadow color. As a college student, she is always seeking budget-friendly beauty products. This Fashionista recommends the Wet N Wild flat top brush because it creates a flawless, blended look and it only costs $3.

This Fashionista’s outfit is a perfect match for her natural makeup. Denim on denim is back in style. This trend carried over from the summer into the fall, and is now more in style than ever before. This look can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. This Fashionista chose more of a casual look, selecting distressed jeans and TOMS, but denim on denim is very versatile. For a more dressed up appeal, try a button-down denim top, bell-bottom jeans and heels or booties. American Eagle Outfitters is one of the best places to shop for denim because they always carry the most up-to-date trends.
