Fall Makeup | 2014 ♥

Fall has officially arrived! Hurry and grab all your favorite vampy products because that’s what you’ll be rockin’ for the next few months! Although, I am a little sad to see summer officially go I am super excited to start wearing darker lipsticks and smokey eyes. That’s probably my favorite type of makeup to wear!

I decided to do a Fall makeup look for you guys using one of my favorite palettes and one of my favorite fall lipsticks! I definitely think the Amrezy palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills is the perfect Fall Palette, so if you don’t own it yet, I totally recommend you go out and get it! It’s one of the great ones, Promise!

Black Lips & Neutral Eyes ♥

Black lipstick has been the new trend lately, besides the Kylie Jenner Nude Lip. I’ve been wanting to try this trend for a while but was a little hesitant since black lips is so difficult to make wearable. I’m pretty sure the last time I wore a Black lip was when I was about 10 years old for Halloween (I was a witch btw).

Anyway, I’m super happy with how it came out! I made sure to bronze my skin and contour perfectly so that my face didn’t look too flat. I wanted to keep the eyes neutral but still a little smokey to give it a nice exotic effect.

I hope you guys enjoy this look as much as I did filming this. I am seriously obsessed with how it came out so I really hope you guys love it just as much!
