It's November and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Which means there's going to be functions, dinners and get together's for you to go to. I put together 9 looks that I would wear to any one of those. Some have glitter, some are more colorful, others are simple and natural. It's all in what you're comfortable with.
So instead of telling you how to do each one and what I used I'm just going to give you good option for Thanksgiving/fall inspired looks. All these looks are on my Instagram page with details of products used. (@lovemascara)
So here's some tips:
Neutral liquid lipstick. If this comes off it won't be as noticeable as a dark color or a bright color. So think Lolita from Kat Von D, Lovely or Pure Hollywood from ABH.
For dark lips or if you don't like liquid lipstick, use lip liners and fill in your entire lip with them. They last longer than a lipstick and certainly last longer than gloss. I love Colour Pop Cosmetics lip pencils. They have a ton of colors and they're $5. They are also a bit drier so they really stay on for a long time.
Colors I love:
For berry lips I really like Dose of Colors Berry Me. It's dupe is Rebel from LA Girl Cosmetics. I think Dose of Colors will look better throughout the day and fade prettier.
For a neutral eye and a pop on the lips I recommend Ofra Cosmetics Miami Fever. It's like a pumpkin color. Like a burnt brown orange.
For eyes that pop, try using a pigment. They're easier than you think. Buff in a crease color and then lay down a pigment either with your finger or a flat stiff brush. It makes your eye makeup look so much more complicated than it is.
Some pigments I recommend are:
MUG Vegas Lights
MAC Rose Gold
MAC Heritage Rouge
Also try applying a foiled shadow or a duo chrome shadow to the lid with your finger. I like In The Spotlight foiled shadow, Amber Rush from Loreal, or Mai Tai duo chrome from MUG.
Also don't be afraid to try glitter. Using a glitter glue and your finger to apply it with. Tap a small amount out into the lid and go slowly so that you don't pack on too much glitter. I love Violet Voss glitters like Rosalind and Copperella, and I also love Beauty Bar Baby glitter stacks that are sample stacks where you can try a bunch of glitters for a fraction of the price. I use Fantasy and Send Me and Angel glitter from them the most.
Lashes are the final touch. If nothing else I will put on Lolita lipstick and a great pair of lashes and some Benefit Gimme Brow and call it a day. I LOVE House of Lashes "Siren" and also Violet Voss "Vamptress". Of course my tried and true are still the Bianca lashes from Lena Lashes but mink lashes can get on my nerves after a few hours so I tend to go for lashes that are lighter and fit better on my lash line if I'm gonna wear them all day.
I'm from Tennessee. I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
