My Favorite Fall Makeup Look | Dewy Skin

Fall season excites me more than words can describe. The level of excitement is akin to my anticipation of Thursday, my favorite day, because it signals “the weekend is here”. So the first day of fall to me is like “the holidays are here”. I know, I’m weird like that.

Last week, I shared fabulous ways to welcome fall in four aspects: beauty, fashion, food and fitness. This time around, and in collaboration with my fellow beauty bloggers, I will be more specific as to my favorite makeup look, dewy skin for the win ladies!

To achieve dewy and youthful skin, the “not-so-secret secret” lies on lightweight foundation such as my go-to foundation ILIA True Skin. So what makes this quite unique from my other vegan and cruelty-foundations (read how to veganize your beauty)? first, the list of naturally derived ingredients is impressive. Considering that I have combination skin, I find that it doesn’t make my face look greasy but rather radiant. While having dinner with my friend, she actually complimented how my face looks so smooth and glowing under the light, and this foundation had been on for over 8 hrs straight. When a woman, a very close friend for that matter for 30 years compliments you, you better believe her!

**Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, *Coconut Alkanes, Caprylyl Methicone, *Polyglyceryl-6 Polyricinloleate, *Cetearyl Isononanoate, *Polyglyceryl-2 Isostearate, *Boron Nitride, Dimethicone, *Disteardimonium Hectorite, *Oryza Sativa (Rice) Hull Powder, *Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, *Gluconolactone. Contains 1% or Less of Each of the Following: *Glycerin, Isopentyldiol, *Sodium Chloride, *Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, *Sodium Benzoate, *Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, *Adansonia Digitata Seed Oil, **Rosa Moschata Seed Oil, *Sclerocarya Birrea (Marula) Oil, **Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, *Squalane, *Tocopherol, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, *Pentylene Glycol, *Pistacia Lentiscus (Mastic) Gum, *Hydrogenated Lecithin, *Calcium Gluconate, *Ethylhexylglycerin, *Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Flower/Leaf Extract, *Phenethyl Alcohol, Bisabolol. May Contain (+/-): Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77499, Ci 77491, Ci 77492).

My next tip is to lightly dust a transclucent setting powder (Hourglass Veil) under the eyes, side of the face, and nose bridge using a fan brush. I don’t powder my entire face because it defeats the purpose of dewy and radiant skin.

To complete this simple day-friendly look, I opted for minimal eye makeup. This particular palette from b-glowing (Illuminate + Shine) has all the shades that are fall-appropriate. It does have an eye base and highlighter and eight neutral shades, presented in a classy faux leather case with built-in mirror. Handy and travel-friendly, I like that a lot.

This creamy eyeshadow from Au Naturale (watch my Whole Foods Haul video) is a lovely addition to my stash. I like to use it as an eye base to make the eyeshadow last a tad longer.

Having well-groomed and natural-looking brows are ride-or-die-for me. This brow pomade from Kat Von D (taupe) has been a constant fixture in my vanity.

A new-to-me brand, I am glad to have discovered this lip gloss from Clove + Hallow (Candied Hearts). It applies nicely and as you can see from my photos above, it gives my lips a sexy pouty “lift” sans fillers.

What about you? what’s your favorite look for fall?

    I want to try the Ilia Serum Foundation! I’m all for dewy! I think it makes your skin look really healthy!

    You look so radiant and pretty! I am so ready for fall. Right now, there is little evidence of it, in my neck of the woods. It’s still hot, everything is very green, the birds are singing and the cicadas are making their racket in the poplar trees.

      I can visualize your fall there and it’s making me jealous.

    Dewy skin is so pretty on you! I love the look but can’t pull it off myself as my skin looks like an oil slick far too quickly.

      I used to have oily skin too. Now it’s combination, age-related haha

    I am with you all the way: dewy skin for the win! Very pretty look! I will have to look at the cream eyeshadow from Au Naturale next time I’m at Whole Foods

    I’ve been eyeing that b-glowing palette. I hope they come out with more palettes with different colour schemes! I wish I could pull off dewy – MATTE turns dewy on me within minutes.

    Lovely photos and great post! I love the every day look!

  7. September 17, 2018 / 5:52 pm

    That b-glowing palette is on my wishlist. I don’t remember if you said that the Ilia Serum Foundation had fragrance. I’m much preferring a serum foundation now since I don’t want anything heavy on my face.

  8. September 17, 2018 / 7:09 pm

    The palette looks nice – neutrals are my thing. I wasn’t able to read the top part as photos were covering up the wording for me.

    The palette is just so appealing to me! I really like the KVD brow products and the Hourglass powder. I’m powdering my face regularly forthe first time!

  10. September 18, 2018 / 6:22 am

    That palette is so cute! What a pretty glowing look!

  11. September 18, 2018 / 10:35 am

    I want that b-glowing palette! I absolutely LOVE the look that you created, it’s so gorgeous and flattering!

  12. September 18, 2018 / 10:48 am

    Ugh you’re just so gorgeous!!!! I love the KVD Brow Precision Pencil and I’ve been wanting to try out the Pomade. I’ve found a few I like but none that are staples. You’re definitely giving me the desire to buckle down and buy it!

  13. September 18, 2018 / 10:56 am

    What a great fall look! I like that it’s not heavy but still gives the appearance of dewy skin.

    Looking gorgeous! I’m so in love with that b-glowing palette!

    Fall is my favorite season as well, I just love it. I wish that it would change the leaves and we would experience a little more change of season here in Hawaii, but I digress. I love this palette. It’s definitely something I would love for an everyday look. You look fabulous my friend.

  16. September 19, 2018 / 9:52 am

    Your skin looks so healthy! I love this natural look. Also, I’m a fall baby so fall is my favorite season. Plus, I just love watching the leaves change – it gets really pretty here in Michigan around early October.

      I’m jealous that you get to experience real fall 🙂

  17. September 19, 2018 / 12:54 pm

    I really like that case on the palette!!! Nothing worse than damaging your favorite palette!!

    Digging the shimmer colors in that palette. I want it!

  19. September 20, 2018 / 2:21 pm

    Dewy skin suits you! If I tried, I’d look like a greaseball. You look radiant and your brows are A+

  20. September 21, 2018 / 6:24 am

    I’m so ready for fall so that we can get back to that dewy skin look! I’m loving the look you created and I’m now eyeing that Hourglass Veil Powder and that foundation!
