BEAUTY BAR: Welcome to the Dark Side

With fall quickly approaching, the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. Naturally, bright summer colors begin to fade into the dark shades of fall, which is exactly what this featured Fashionista has accomplished in her beauty look.

With some help from Sephora, this look was easily created with a few simple layers. First, she applied her Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème under her eyes, on her forehead, on her chin and in the middle of her nose and proceeded to blend it. The next layer consisted of MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation that she blended onto her entire face with a moistened blender sponge. These two products are incredible for a lightweight look that lasts all day long. To highlight her cheekbones, she applied a light layer of NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator with her blush brush. This way, her blush color blended with her illuminator to create the perfect mixture of pink tones and highlights.

To draw and color in her eyebrows, she dipped her slanted bristle brush in Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW by Pomade and went to work. Every Fashionista needs a nude eye shadow palette, but the infamous Urban Decay Naked Eye Shadow Palette can be a little costly for college students on a budget. As a substitute, this Fashionista uses her budget-friendly version from Hot Topic, the L.A. Girl Beauty Brick Nudes Eye Shadow Palette, to create a dark blend of neutral fall colors on her lids. Once she created the mix she preferred, she applied a thin streak of Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner both on top and underneath her eyes. She completed her eyes by plumping up her lashes with Sephora’s Outrageous Volume – Dramatic Volume Mascara on both her top and bottom lashes.

Last but most definitely not least: lipstick! She colored her lips with “Girl Gang,” a plum color by Smashbox’s Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick that’s smudge-proof and lasts up to eight hours, so it’s perfect for any occasion!

This featured Fashionista coordinated her outfit to match her dark eyes and lips. She chose a burgundy dress with a little flare across the neckline to give her look some sass. She paired her dress with black cutout heels to keep her looking flawless head to toe. To complete her look, she brought along her black leather jacket. This way, her outfit is perfect for any occasion during the day but can quickly be ready for the night scene in absolutely no time!
