Fall Makeup Look 2016 with Lit Cosmetics, Viseart, Smith's Rosebud Salve, RCMA No Color Powder

Fall Makeup Look of the Day


Back again with another fall makeup 2016 look for you guys featuring some of my favorite long-wearing makeup products! This look was originally shared on Instagram, so make sure to follow me there if you want to be one of the first to see the products and looks I discuss.

I had a press event this past weekend in NYC and wanted to wear something with a bit of glamour to it, but toned down enough that it wasn't out of place with the event I was attending. I chose one of my absolute favorite glitters (Lit Cosmetics Champagne Wishes), contoured my eye with a soft, smoky crease and threw on a pair of my favorite lashes.

I kept blush/contour/highlight soft and natural.

Now here's where things get a bit more interesting. I had to leave at 4 am and didn't return home until close to midnight, which meant I started applying my makeup shortly after 3 am and it had to last. I pulled out all of the MUA tricks I've learned and discovered over the years to make this as long-wearing as possible and I'm happy to report that the photos above were taken at the 12 hour mark around 4 pm with no touch-ups. When we finally got home around midnight my makeup was still completely in tact--major win! I'm happy to share some of my tricks of the trade if you guys are ever interested.

The pictures above were taken in natural light on a super overcast, rainy down (Oh, did I mention this face went through 30+ mph gusts of wind and some rain?) and has not been edited to alter the look of the products or their performance.

I've linked the products below and none of them include affiliate links, but I'd appreciate it if you let the brands know that you saw their products here if my post inspires you to purchase!  I'm happy to be able to share some of my honest favorites with you guys. :)

    1. Thank you! Proper application and placement is definitely key and whether on myself or someone else, I prefer to enhance what's there rather than change someone's features entirely. Faces are so beautifully unique! :)

    1. Aw thank you! I think it takes a little practice, I've actually posted tips on applying them in the past, but two of the top tips I can give you is:

      1. Trim the strip to fit your eye (trimming from the outer edge if needed)
      2. Cut them into 3 pieces so that you only have to apply smaller pieces at a time.

      Good luck and feel free to come back with any questions if you're still having trouble!

    1. Aw thank you! You totally could with a little practice! It's taken years of practice and studying (my MUA classes have certainly benefited my own face along with those that sit for me) to get to this point and not every day is a total win, but the more you know your own face and find products that work for you the easier!

    1. MAC was my first major makeup purchase as a teen so they hold a special place in my heart, too! I didn't use any MAC shadows here, but I highly recommend my holy grail shadow brand--Viseart <3

  18. Such a pretty look! I really love how dressed-up your eyes look, but not overly done.
