Sunday Standouts #1 | Easy Fall Makeup


Sunday Standouts #1 | Easy Fall Makeup

I can’t remember the last time I did a monthly favorites post and I really miss them. Monthly can be a bit overwhelming though because I tend to fall head over heels in love with lots of things so I figured it was about time we started another series around here. So I’ve got some easy Fall makeup choices for you for the first of my new Sunday Standouts series.

ELF CONTOURING BLUSH & BRONZER POWDER – You can check out my review of this here. This is the Antigua duo. It’s been one of my staples this season for my bronzer color. It’s a bit shimmery but you don’t get a ton of it on the brush so it still fits the season. I use my real techniques multi task brush to apply it and I love it.

MAYBELLINE DREAM BOUNCY in Candy Coral – This is one of my all time favorite blush choices, I probably have about six of them in this shade. Everyone else is reaching for berry shades but I just can’t give up on this colorful coral just yet. It’s super creamy and you can give yourself just a natural flush or build on it for more of a pop of color.

NEUTROGENA NOURISHING LONG WEAR FOUNDATION – With Fall upon us we are looking for more coverage and that flawless foundation finish, this is perfect for that look. I have been using it almost daily and loving it.

TARTE POWER PIGMENT in FLUSH – This is a sheer berry lip tint that I am absolutely loving. I got it in my most recent Glossybox and I’ve already ordered another. This shade is perfection for your easy fall makeup picks.

BARIELLE SOHO AT NIGHT – You can see a swatch of this here from the Barielle Me Couture collection. A perfect Fall shade that I am absolutely loving. It’s opaque in two coats and simply amazing.

What are you loving this week?
