FOTD: Mauve + Coppers

Another day, another look that involves incorporating fall colors into my makeup routine. For me it’s shades of mauve and coppers that work best for my complexion. They’re usually the shades I gravitate towards and are somewhat of a safety blanket. Add in loads of mascara and tamed brows for a complete (yet simple) fall look…


I’ve been traveling a lot lately – and missing out on a good amount of sleep – so any products that give my skin some sense of glow is alright with me. My Too Faced Hangover primer has been a staple in my routine and gives that perfect sense of hydration to dry skin. I’ve also been mixing my NARS 413 BLKR highlighter to my foundation to thin it out a bit, while also giving a slight glow. Speaking of glow: Becca’s Champagne Pop is still a daily go-to. For me it’s the finishing touch and gives the perfect amount of highlight on my cheekbones to make skin radiant from within. I also pop some in my tear ducts and over my cupids bow to give my face an overall pop.


Anything that’s quick and easy to apply on the go is my solution to still looking pulled together. Cream shadows – like this Brownie Points shade from e.l.f. – are highly pigmented and don’t require the use of a brush. I’ve been smudging it all over the lid with my fingers and blending out for some warmth. Maybelline makes a bunch of great mascaras and I’ve been slowing picking all of them up. Lately I’ve been using their Falsies Push-Up Drama for heavy lash impact. The mascara is super long-lasting, and leaves me with uber black lashes.


I’ve been straying away from my normal pink/peach lip into more mauve-focused colors. My MAC liner in Boldly Bare and lipstick in Craving are the ultimate combination. I’m looking forward to introducing deeper/darker shades as the months continue.

Do you have any shades you tend to use in the Fall? Or are you the type who introduces a whole new range each year? Let me know what you’ve been loving!
