Guest Post: My Makeup Picks For Fall | Taya - MyLittleBeautyWorld


Hello, lovely readers of Meteo Beauty. My name is Tatjana and I'm author of blog Taya My Little Beauty World. I'm a Slovenian blogger, but I write my posts in English, so my international readers can understand them too. When Selma asked me to write a guest post for her blog I was honoured and I immediately said yes. I don't remember anymore, how I came across her blog, but when I started to follow her she soon became one of my favourite bloggers. I decided to share few of my favourite products for fall with you today. If you look through the window you see fall is already here. I started to pick up more fall beauty products lately and leaving summery shades behind, so this is a great chance to talk about my makeup and nail polish picks for fall. When it comes to fall I think about colours, like burgundy, plum, golden, purple etc. Today I'm going to talk about eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks and nail polishes that I think are perfect for this season.

I'm a huge fan of bold make up looks, but since I love to wear dark lips I also use neutral shades a lot. Last year Sleek released a perfect palette for fall, called Vintage Romance, that was unfortunately a limited edition palette, but I know in some online drugstores in my country is still available. It has perfect shades for fall looks, including golden, plum and burgundy shades, which I love a lot. I also find Deborah Milano trio palette Hi-Tech 08 with golden, purple and burgundy shade perfect for this season. It has baked eyeshadows, which have nice pigmentation and last all day. They can be used wet or dry. Catrice has a nice selection of mono eyeshadows and some of them I often choose for fall makeup looks. Some of them are shimmery, like Plum up the Jam, My First Copperware Party, Talk like an Egyptian, and some are matte, like Al Burgundy. These can be used in crease or all over the lids; it depends from the look one wants to achieve. Also, Maybelline Color Tattoo Pomegranate Punk is a shade I'll use a lot as a base for powdery eyeshadows. It's a perfect burgundy shade, a bit more sheer than other Color Tattoo eyeshadows that I own and that's the reason I mostly use it as a base.

In fall I like to wear burgundy/purple or coraly/peachy shades on my cheeks. My blush collection is quite big, but I have few favourites that I use all the time. Sleek Pomegranate, Maybelline 501 and Catrice Bed of Flowers are blushes from burgundy/purple colour family that are by my opinion perfect for fall. My cheeks are naturally very red and these give me similar look, maybe a bit darker, when they’re blended. Catrice Bed of Flowers is a purple creamy blush, that doesn't last that long on my cheeks, so I often set it with powder blush. Sleek Pomegranate and Maybelline 501 contain tiny shimmer which is luckily not too noticeable on face, are amazingly pigmented and last all day on cheeks. I also love coral/peach blushes. From this colour family are my favourite Essence Ap-ri(c)ot, Essence Asian Sensation and Etude House Grapefruit Jelly. Unlike upper three these gave my cheeks more natural, soft look, and I love to use them with stronger makeup, when main focus is on eyes or lips.

Fall is all about darker shades. This is the time when I put bright shades back in my lipstick corner and start reaching more for dark red, berry, plum, purple shades. These just scream fall, don't you think? One of my currently favourites picks is Catrice Plum&Base, which is amazing creamy plum shade that lasts on my lips for hours. Under it I sometimes like to use a plummy matte Catrice lip pencil Love the Way You Plum. Purple lipsticks that I adore are Essence Wear Berries and Catrice Russian Violette. Both are creamy, shiny and moisturizing. From dark red lipsticks I really like to wear Revlon lip butter in shade Red Velvet, which is very moisturizing, but unfortunately doesn't last very long; it completely fades away from my lips after two hours, but luckily it doesn't smudge, so I don’t need to worry if I have it somewhere else than on my lips. One of my favourite fall (and also winter) lipsticks is also Catrice Matt-erial Girl, a gorgeous berry creamy shade. Red is a classic shade and I wear it all year long. Recently I discovered Essence Adorable Matt, a classic red lipstick, which has amazing creamy formula and duration time also surprised me, because it lasts around four hours on my lips, which is a lot for an Essence lipstick. Essence says it has a matte finish, but I’d say it’s more semi-matte. Because I often wear darker looks, a nude lipstick is a must for me. I really love Essence Natural Beauty, because it goes well with every eye look and it suits my skin tone perfectly.  

Nail polishes
When it comes to nail polishes, I love to use polishes from red colour family in fall. Few of my favourites are P2 Before Sunrise, a metallic red shade with golden shimmer, P2 Hold Me Tight, a dusty red shade, and Essie Bahama Mama, a burgundy creamy shade, which is probably my number one fall and winter nail polish. Next is Essie Mind Your Mittens, a greyish black polish that looks completely black on nails. Can I just say how perfect this polish is? It looks great as a base for nail art, alone or as an accent nail in skittle manicure. I also included nudes. The reason I love nudes so much is probably because they are a perfect base for nail art. You will rarely see me wearing only one colour, I usually feel creative with my nails and I do nail art manicures on them all the time, even if I do the easiest and most simple one. My currently favourite nudes are Kardashian Beauty Buff and OPI Did You ‘Ear about Van Gogh. Last group of polishes are golden shades. For me the golden colour is the most connected with fall and Christmas. I really love polishes like She 230, a metallic golden shade, and P2 Precious, which is a golden glittery polish with sand finish. Of course I wear other, darker colours as well, but these are the ones I wanted to mention in this post.

For the end I have one simple makeup look for you, which I did with products I mentioned above. On my eyes I used eyeshadows from Sleek Vintage Romance and Deborah palette, on cheeks Catrice Bed of Flowers blush and on lips Catrice Plum&Base lipstick.
