Everyday Makeup Look for Fall

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

As we start to face chilly mornings and less sunlight, there isn’t much that I like to do except snuggle during my downtime with good books and delicious coffee. While I love to do my makeup and put on as much highlight as possible, most days I enjoy keeping my look simple and elegant for the office.

I’ve partnered with Yves Rocher to show you an easy breezy everyday makeup look that is perfect for fall! You can add your own touches and make it suitable for work (or school if you’re a student). I’m so excited to be a brand ambassador for Yves Rocher; the brand’s passion for botanical beauty and a healthy, green environment are two factors that really stood out to me. We’ve got a lot of great content planned for you – stay tuned as we unveil it all!

Eye products used:
Once you get the hang of using eyeliner, it’s hard to not incorporate it into your daily makeup routine. I always suggest using a felt tip liner to follow your natural eyelash line for a sharp, polished look. At the edges you can enhance the drama by creating a cat eye effect or lining your under-eye portion.

Mascara is great to use on an everyday basis as it lifts your lashes from drooping to help you look more awake. The one I’m using here (photographed above) is enriched with Elemi, a botanical fixing extract that keeps your lashes perfectly curled for up to 12 hours! No tools required.

Lip products used:
With just one even stroke, these buttery lip crayons glide on smoothly and bring a lot of colour to your lips. Enriched in candelilla wax and other nutrients, I love how moisturizing they are. When I do touch ups throughout the day, it doesn’t cause flaking or dryness. They come in 12 beautiful shades, so if you’re not into the dark burgundy lip, you can opt for something more subtle or nude.

Face products used:
This is where I try to keep my daily routine as simple as possible. Forget the contouring or strobing (especially if you don’t have time or know what suits your face) and stick to basics.

I begin by concealing areas that I want to cover up or even out, including my under eye area, bridge of my nose, little spots on my cheeks, chin and forehead. Using a beauty blender, I blend the product into my skin and try to ensure the overall colour of my face looks the same! An error that I often see is when women apply concealer to cover blemishes, but if you don’t blend it out to match the rest of the face, it can look spotty. This concealer gives great coverage without feeling too heavy.

I complete the look by mattefying my face with a powder. As I go about my day, I will often re-apply it to keep everything in place! I'm really enjoying Yves Rocher's Flawless Skin Powder because the soy extract helps it blend well into the skin for an even finish.

Pick a blush that matches your lipstick or the look you’re going for and you are ready to head out the door. I went for a peachy pink because it adds a nice contour and shine at once but doesn’t over-empower anything else that I have on my face.

I hope you enjoyed this everyday makeup look for fall! Don’t be afraid of a bold lip or a matte face, you may be surprised with how much you like it on a daily basis. Be sure to follow me and Yves Rocher on Instagram for more on our partnership!
