Everything on Point for Fall // Updated Makeup Routine and First Impressions

 Hey there,

Today, I'm back (yet again...) with a new makeup tutorial. (Yes I spend most of my weekends trying out new makeup and products for possible makeup tutorials.)

Speaking of which! I actually went shopping this week and bought some drugstores makeup products that I already love! So today's makeup is my daily makeup routine for Fall and a kinda first impression post.


Let's get into it now!

I start with applying my makeup foundation, which is the ColorStay makeup foundations from Revlon in the shade fresh beige, same one as always. I seriously adore it so much, I don't think I could ever change it. Anyway, so I apply it with the same foundation brush from Real Technique. 


Next, I'm taking my newly concealer from L'Oréal. It's the "Accord Parfait" concealer in the shade "light beige". It's made for concealing and highlighting your face and it's really amazing. I must say, I had a hard time figuring out how to use it, but I eventually found out. You just have to turn the end of the thing until the product comes out of the brush on the other side. Really practical! 



So I apply the concealer directly onto my face, under my eyes, nose, cupid bones, a little bit on my forehead and chin.



To blend it, I'm taking the foundation brush that I used right before, and just blend the concealer. I was truly amazed by the product because I really didn't think it was going to highlight my face that much, but it did. 


I know I look quite pale, but I promise it's the flash of my camera. The lighting in my bathroom isn't that great for photos, but I do need a big mirror to do my makeup so I've got to use my bathroom...


Anyway, next, I take my Stay Matte pressed powder from Rimmel in the shade transparent and I apply it all over my face with my powder brush from Real Technique.


For contouring, I wanted to spice things up a bit, so I bought a contouring kit from L'Oréal, which has a bronzer and a highlighter and a little brush and a mirror. Great kit! The shade that I got is brunette, which is actually perfect for my face. 



I apply it in a 3 shape with my bronzer brush from Sephora, on the side of my forehead, under my cheeks and down the jaw line on my chin. I also like to apply it down my chin because I have quite an oval face. It does help in making my face looks rounder, or at least less oval. 


I really like the bronzer, I love the shade, which is even more perfect than the bronzer that I used from Bourgeois. I love how pigmented this is, which actually surprised me the first time I used it. It is so pigmented, I tried my best to blend it. I also love the texture, the smell, and how easy it is to apply. 


For blush, I'm using my Mac powder blush in the shade Desert Pink. I'm gonna be honest, this is not my favorite blush... I'm actually really disappointed in this one, I find it very hard to apply... But I do like the color it gives to my cheeks, and it lasts quite long.


For highlighter, even though the L'Oréal concealer is quite great for highlighting, I still need to set it up with some serious highlights. So I'm taking the highlighter, which comes in the contouring kit from L'Oreal. It's a really cool highlighter, which almost reminds me of the Mac Mineralized Highlighter that I use normally. 




However, I feel like there's not enough products compared to the Bronzer, and I find it hard to take the products with the brush. Anyway, I apply the highlighter with a powder brush that I actually got from Forever 21, down my nose, cupid bones and on the top of cheeks. 


For brows, I also changed my routine. I got the Maybeline Brow Satin pencil in the shade dark brown, which has a pencil on one side and a powder "smudge" brush on the other side. 


 First, I start with defining my brows with the pencil and I also fill them a little bit. It gives my brows quite a rough look, and that's when the smudge thingy comes right on time!



To make my brows a little bit softer, I take the other side of the pencil and smudge the pencil, or blend it. It really gives me the Eyebrows on Fleek look. I love it, maybe even more than the brow gel from Benefit. 



Now the eyes. On my last monthly favorite I told you I was going to show you my makeup routine using the Naked3 Palette from Urban Decay. And today, my friends, is the day. I didn't prime my eyes this time, just because I was lazy, and I think that the Urban Decay shadows are greatly pigmented and also they last on the eyes forever. 




So I directly apply the shade Liar, which is a glittery light pink/purple with grey undertones, on my eyes with the brush, which comes with the palette.


It is not the best eye brush ever, but it's quite a good "all over the lid" brush. I apply it all over my eyes.


For my creases, I'm taking the Nooner shade, which is a "Taupe" matte shadow. I apply it with my 218 fluffy brush from Makeup Forever, in my crease and I bring it down to my outer corner, down my lower water line. 



For eyeliner, I decided to try a new one. I found this liner from Rimmel, which is actually not a liquid liner. It's the Scandal Eyes Micro Eyeliner in the shade waterproof black. It doesn't give my eyes the same "fierceness" as a liquid liner would do but it works well, and I actually feel like it's easier to draw a line with this pencil.



It's similar to a gel liner, or an eye pencil. It's waterproof, black, not an intense black but a black that will work for a day to night look. I draw a line, quite a bigger line than I normally do, and finish it with a big wing. I really like this liner, again, really simple to use and great if you're learning how to draw your eyeliner wing and line.


For mascara, I'm not changing my routine, it's too great. I actually just got the Better than Sex Mascara from Too Faced again, because the last one I got was quite dry and hard to apply. Anyway, so I apply this mascara on my upper and lower lashes.



For lipsticks, it's fall so it means that it's officially dark lipsticks season. I mean duuuuh, have you seen my last makeup tutorial? I did change the lipstick I'm using because I wanted to stay in this "Almost all drugstores makeup tutorial" vibes. 


So this lipstick, similar to the Diva from Mac, is actually the Inhibition lipstick from Topshop. It's a matte purple lipstick, with dark red undertones,

that I absolutely adore for Fall and Winter. It's high quality, as all Topshop makeup products, and it's quite cheap compared to Mac Lipstick (only 10€ or 12€ VS 19,90€).



That's it for the finished look. That's literally the makeup that I wear daily for school during fall time, but since I was going out on that day, I did went crazy with the eyeliner. Again, perfect for day-to-night look, I just added some black eye pencil on my lower water line for my Night Out.


Anyway, I hope you like it, I do think it's wearable, but it's just my opinion. Little disclaimer, I'm no professional, I do my makeup as a simple marketing student, who just loves makeup and fashion, and has literally no idea what she's doing.
