BEAUTY BAR: Fresh Faced for Fall

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall,” said F. Scott Fitzgerald who couldn’t have been more right about that. With the new season comes an excuse to visit Sephora. Of course, not that you needed an excuse, but it usually helps if you suffer from buyers’ remorse.

There will always be certain things that feel like fall, pumpkin spice lattes, apple pies, Fitzgerald novels, a bold red lip and few things are better than a bold red lip. This Fashionista kept her makeup classic with a fresh face, pairing a clean cat eye with a rich red lipstick. Her outfit balances the look by transitioning summer pieces into fall with her fox socks peeking out of her brown ankle boots. This is definitely a look that inspires visiting a pumpkin patch or picking up seasonal produce from the local farmer’s market.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To first get this look, you’ll need a clean base. To make sure your foundation goes on smoothly and evenly you’ll need to first slough away whatever summer has left on your skin. First prep your face with Caudalie’s Instant Detox Mask. It does wonders to get rid of all your dead skin that months of sunbathing has accumulated. After you prep with the mask, you’ll see the difference it makes when it comes time to apply your foundation. Next, set your foundation with NARS All Day Luminous Powder. This will give your skin a smooth finish that avoids looking caked on. Add a few flicks of Kat Von D’s liquid eyeliner in Trooper, finish with a classic red lipstick like MAC’s Ruby Woo and you’re set and ready for whatever this semester throws at you (or at the very least you’ll look like you’re handling things well).
