Hello Fall: Copper & Plum

A bold welcome to Fall 2016. With metallic, almost haloed copper eyes and a deep plum, near eggplant lip.

Drawn On Freckles + Pat McGrath Blood 2

I’ve been enjoying the faux natural skin trend this month, with barely there contouring along the jawline and cheekbones, a truckload of liquid and cream highlighter, sheer bright blush, and freckles made of eyebrow pencil. It’s a great way to pretend you woke up like this, or to showcase a strong lip. At the time of this writing, you can still buy Blood 2 from Sephora, which I recommend if you’re looking for a beautiful deep deep plum because it is really well formulated and wears very well for a dark color in a classic lipstick formulation. If you can’t get it, the MAC Nightmoth pencil I used to line is a very close match used alone.


Less Is More

A skin-focused and natural design, quick and easy. Plan was to achieve a demure, humble “no makeup” ingenue look that I can wear anywhere including church, office, hayride, hiking.
