A Pumpkin Spice Makeup Tutorial For Fall

One of my favorite things about fall is the pumpkin spice latte… can you blame me? There’s truly nothing better than wearing cozy sweaters, snuggling up by the fire and baking treats while sipping on this yummy fall drink.

Today, I’m going to show you guys a fall beauty look that will warm you up like a pumpkin spice latte. Watch the YouTube tutorial and step-by-step guide below:

Step 1:  Start with the base. I used a palette that I’m obsessed with! It’s Urban Decay’s Naked Heat Eye Shadow Palette. Trust me, this one is a keeper. I’m using four colors from the palette: Chaser, Sauced, Low Blow and Lombre.

Step 2: Tap a Morphe brush in “Sauced” then sweep it over the crease and onto the lid. A little goes a long way but if a little powder falls, that's okay! 

Step 3: With the same brush, use "Low Blow" and stroke halfway over the crease. 

Step 4: Switch brushes to MAC’s #239 and gently pat on “Lumber” to the base of your eyelids. This gives you a little bit of a rust and ombre effect.

Step 5: Now tap the “Chaser” color in the tear ducts and the brow bone to give it a little bit of a highlight. I love that this one is pretty matte and doesn’t give a shiny finish.

Step 6: Use Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On eye pencil in “whiskey” just on the water line. Just like the eye shadow, a little bit of liner goes a long way.

Step 7: Last step for the eyes! I used a mascara that I’m obsessed with from BareMinerals called Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara. It’s thick but not too thick. Trend alert: Heavy lower lashes are really trendy for fall.

Step 8: Now time for the cheeks! I absolutely love this blush that I used. It’s from Lilah B’s Divine Duo Lip and Cheek collection in “B. Lovely.” This product is so small and perfect that you can just throw in your bag on the go. Apply it on the apple of your cheekbones and blend, blend, blend. Use the warmth of your hands to sweep it across both cheeks and over the bridge of the nose. It really gives an all-over glow. 

Step 9: One of my favorite new products is a bronzy highlighter from Senna. It’s their Divine Shine in Baked Glossy. (See similar here) I used the B 28 Morphe brush. You only need a couple of strokes with this.

Step 10: For lips, I used the Laura Mercier lip liner in “natural lips.” It’s the perfect beautiful neutral beige color! For a bigger pop of color, I ended up using my all time favorite chubby stick from Honest Beauty in “Sheer Chestnut Kiss." I wear it day and night and always keep it in my bag.
