BEAUTY BAR: Simple With A Statement

Everyone’s favorite season is in full-throttle! October is the perfect month to submerge yourself in all of fall’s wondrous joys. It’s time to carve pumpkins, bake apple pies, find a killer Halloween costume and cozy up in your favorite big sweater. However, with so many seasonal activities consuming your time on the weekends and cramming for midterms during the week, it can be difficult to find the time to pamper yourself. The key is to keep your makeup simple with a statement.

This Fashionista does this perfectly. To get even and flawless coverage she uses bareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. This foundation gives the skin a long-lasting luminous finish, making her look as if she is not wearing any makeup at all.

With a clean and simple face intact, this collegiate chose to make a statement with her lips. Fall is a great time for experimenting with darker lip colors, and the trick is to find the right color for your skin tone. On her lips, she uses her NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. This product glides on smoothly and is super pigmented, making the need to re-apply less frequent. Although this Fashionista is not wearing any eye makeup today, it’s important to remember not to overpower your bold lip with dark shadows or harsh liners. If it’s a sunny fall day, skip the eye makeup all together. Opt for a classic pair of black or dark brown sunglasses. Dark sunglasses have the ability to create a sultry and vampy contrast between a bold lip and fair skin tones.

To finish off her look for a sunny fall afternoon she kept her outfit both simple and classic, with shades of white and black. Her olive army jacket gives a pop of color, without overshadowing her bold lip and immaculate skin.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Achieving this makeup look is super easy! A mineral foundation and a red lip pencil or lipstick that best suits your skin tone is essential to recreating this Fashionista’s timeless look. As for the eyes, go au natural and put on some dark sunglasses. Once these three steps are complete, you’re ready to take on any fall day!
