Summer in Arkansas is six to seven months of humid, oppressive heat that makes your hair flat and your skin melt. In recent years, I’ve started wearing less makeup in the summer, just because it feels gross on my skin and usually smears all over my face by lunch anyway. But when the heat lifts and fall arrives, I welcome back my fun makeup.
This fall, I’ve decided to try some new eye shadow moves. I’ve been doing the same thing for a long time, but I recently saw this post on The Beauty Department and thought I’d give it a shot.
I used my Chella highlighter pencil under my brow and at the inner corners of my eyes. Next, I lined the crease with Bobbi Brown‘s eye pencil in Taupe and smudged it according to the directions. I lined the upper and lower lash line with Bobbi Brown‘s creamy eye pencil in Dusk (which is purple-ish – for green eyes) and smudged it as well, then went back with the Chella pencil right in the middle of the lid (above my pupil) and blended it all together with a few taps of my fingers. Finish with mascara and voila! It’s eyeshadow for those of us that want to look effortless and natural. I’ve found my new fall routine!
What makeup item do you swear by? Let me know! I’m always up to try new products!
