Look of the Day: Everyday Fall Face

Hi, everyone! Today's look of the day is simultaneously nothing special and extra special. On the one hand, it's not an incredibly dramatic look and doesn't have any particular standout features or techniques. On the other hand, this look incorporates some of my favourite shades for fall; so much so, that it is really my go-to, every day fall makeup look. My no-fail, feel pretty, autumn-friendly face.


Overall, the look is warm and neutral, with a bit of a kick (because, hey, I'm not the type to let even my every day face be too natural-looking :). It features NARS Dolce Vita lipstick (the perfect "my lips but better" shade), NYX Taupe blush (one of my new favourite cheek colours, a fantastic neutral pink), and Stila Oasis eye shadow (a lovely, warm golden champagne). This is actually a makeup look that I did for my cousin last month on Thanksgiving (yes, us crazy Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in October) and I loved it so much on her that it's become one of my most worn looks.


Here's a list of the products I used...
