Guest Post | Autumn Plum Look of the Day

Hi, everyone! It's Jen from Vibrant, Vivacious, Veracious Beauty Blog. So excited to be posting on Stacey's blog today. Quite the honour! If there are two things that warm my heart, it's makeup and Fall (and cats, but that would make three). So, in line with these sentiments, I'm bringing you my first Autumn-inspired makeup look of the season! It's all about plums, golds, and berries, typical Fall colours that I can't help but fall for each time the cooler weather breezes around. I hope you enjoy it!

For the complexion, I kept the skin matte with a medium coverage. I opted for the lovely YSL Fusion Ink Foundation in B10 Porcelain, which I'm sampling currently and really loving! The cheeks are all about a glowy plum finish. I applied Becca's Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Raspberry/Opal on the apples of my cheeks with a stippling blush, blending up to the temples. I then swept some of the ultra luxurious By Terry Blush Terrybly in Sexy Plum underneath my cheekbones and on my temples to contour. For the lips, I reached for my brand new Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Aura, a gorgeous sheer plum. It's Fall perfection! 
On the eyes, I started by applying Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Velvet Plum (a purpley-taupe with gold shimmer) all over my lids, concentrating on the crease and outer corner. It worked as a great plummy base! I then applied MAC Cranberry eye shadow on the outer half of the lid and Stila Oasis eye shadow on the inner half of the lid to brighten things up a bit. I finished with some winged out neutral brown cream liner (Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel #89) and two coats of the lush Revlon Lash Potion Waterproof Mascara in Black. 

Here's a peek at the key products in this look, followed by a full breakdown of everything I used!
