Sassy mamas! Fall season makeup is all about warm, earth tone shades with a bold, to semi-bold and deep lip color. Here are my top 5 must-have makeup essentials for a perfect fall look!

The first is the obvious…a great matching foundation. I use IMAN Cosmetics Stick Foundation for my perfect shade, which is Earth 7. Find one that best suits your complexion. 

The second is a warm contour/bronzing shade. For this I use a Black Radiance foundation that is 1 to 2 shades darker than my normal skin tone, which in my case is rich mahogany. The finished effect is fabulously radiant!

The third essential is a blush. I have a year round blush that’s great for deeper skin tones and it’s called MAC Raizin. This shade blends beautifully with my natural hues. Look for one that compliments your natural tones.

The fourth is a good highlighter to bring a little life back into your face. There are a ton out there but a good and inexpensive one is actually found in the Black Radiance dark contour kit. It brilliantly highlights your natural curves.

Last but not least is a dark semi bold matte lip to complete the look. I love love love the ColourPop liquid lips but Black Radiance and IMAN have great options as well. If you can get your hands on some ColourPop liquid lips I recommend the color “Limbo”. If you decide the bold lip isn’t for you and you are more of a natural look kind of girl, go for a foundation color that is 1 shade lighter than your skin tone. It’s one my favorite tricks for creating matte nude lips.

Enjoy and be Fall Fabulous!
