makeup monday: fantastical floral


Happy Monday, everyone and happy fall, too! Now that we’re a week into the official autumnal season, I’m getting all sorts of excited for impending cooler weather and fall holidays. Of course, it still feels like summer in Texas, so today’s post is sort of my final farewell to this year’s sunny spring/summer style.


A couple of months ago, I did this soft, pretty makeup look on Cassidy for an outdoor photo set with local photographer Nick Bruner. The results are beautiful and vibrant, and I think this look is simple and versatile enough to instantly make anyone look and feel a bit rosier.

Product details at the bottom of the post!


•I filled in Cassidy’s brows with a brown powder (by Anastasia Beverly Hills) and angled brush, but did not alter the shape or use harsh lines. The goal is to simply amplify natural features for this look, rather than too much contour or illusion.
•Use a felt-tipped liquid eyeliner pen for faster, cleaner, more user-friendly cat eye application than you’ll get with a brush or gel liner. Need tips for perfecting your cat eye? I’ve written a post about that!
•A rosy pink or peach blush with a little bit of warm gold shimmer will flatter all skin types and brighten up your whole face, making it perfect for a fresh and feminine look like this.
•Choose a lipstick and gloss combination that’s close to your natural lip shade, but slightly brighter and a couple of shades darker. Dusty pinks look great on fair skin, and more bronze/tan neutrals work well with darker complexions.


•brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in Caramel
•eyes: Kat Von D Ink Liner in Trooper + Rimmel Pin-Up Tease mascara
•skin: Bare Minerals powder foundation and mineral veil
•blush: NARS Orgasm
•lips: Sephora lip liner in Royal Rose + Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Peony

I hope you dig this look! I absolutely love the way the makeup colors and Cassidy’s dress and hair color blend perfectly with their surroundings. They found these amazing flowers in south Austin, near St. Edwards University, and I’m incredibly happy with the magical finished product.
