PS. I love fall (makeup)

fall makeup


Usually I refuse to talk about fall before my birthday (which is in about a week), but this year is different. I’m more than ready for all things autumnal, especially makeup.

Every year when summer ends, the contents of my makeup bag change. I move on to foundations, after rocking a very sheer bb-cream the whole summer. I go for dark lipsticks, even though I’m usually a nude gloss type. As for eyeshadows, well, I go for warm eyeshadows all year round. Fall is especially made for red, bronze and gold tones. And dark eye makeup!

On another note, it’s also quite lovely to walk the paths in a natural park in rain. Sit down on a mossy rock every once in a while. See how fall slowly arrives in the forest. Look for mushrooms and owls – without spotting either.

Fall makeup – dark eyes & lips

This looks is very much what comes to mind, when I think of fall makeup. Dark lips, light base with some warmth along with dark eye makeup. Think of warm, red and bronze colors.

For this look I was actually inspired by my own fall makeup from three years ago. I decided to recreate it and do some improvements. Looking at your own work unfortunately you always spot mistakes, always. It’s also interesting to compare these looks and see how my makeup style has changed. Can you spot the differencies?

This time I went for a darker, more golden eye. The palette of my choice was Too Faced Gingerbread Palette Extra Spicy. It’s definitely one of my favorite warm palettes with all the delicious warms, reds and mustardy colors.

When it comes to my base, I used less products – just a good foundation, some bronzer and a peachy blush. Now when I say a good foundation, I actually mean awesome. But I’m gonna do a review soon on it here, so I’ll save some of my enthusiasm for that.

As for the lips, I used a gorgeous deep fall red, YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Stain in 21. Typically darker lipsticks are difficult to get to go on evenly and smoothly on the lips. This lipstick formula is very lightweight and comfortable, making it easier to succeed. So if you’re looking for intense color, but a comfortable feel on the lips, YSL Matte Stain might be one to check out.

What do you think of this autumnal look?

I have to say, it feels weird to be back at blogging after a long holiday. Especially since I’ve kept quite a bit of break from social media, also on Instagram. But it’s very nice to be back too! Hopefully your summer was nice – or maybe you’re still enjoying it? Or are you ready to just bow down to fall?

I love fall.

Makeup Monday: My sister Jasmin

Who remembers Makeup Mondays?

I did my sister Jasmin’s makeup almost a year ago, yet I haven’t posted the results here. To be honest, I was unsure if I should continue the Makeup Monday posts. But after hearing positive feedback on them (and encouragement from my friends), I think I will. I love seeing the before and after. It’s also very refreshing to post someone else’s face here for a change.

Makeup Monday: My sister Jasmin

My sister Jasmin is creative, kind and fun. When she gets excited about something, the whole room lights up. She also loves adventures. A while back we both sat on her longboard and slid down a hill, laughing from the bottom of our hearts. It was raining and the weather was miserable, but somehow those things don’t matter that much when you’re fully enjoying the moment and making it memorable. I guess we are similar in some things, but also really different. I’m happy we’re friends as well as sisters.


Jasmin looks gorgeous in warm colors, so I went for warm colors. I chose an orange blush and bronze eyeshadow. This look turned out pretty basic (I’m sure I’ve done something similar for her before), but simple works. Jasmin also wears glasses and this look suited her gold rimmed glasses really well.

I think this makeup turned out beautiful and it suits Jasmin well! Also, I love how her skin looks in that Madara foundation. It’s just an awesome foundation, looks like skin, but better.
