The Autumn Beauty Lineup

Today I’m writing up a post in collaboration with my best blogging buddy Makena, who blogs at Makeup By Makena.  Her posts are always well thought out and so easy to read, with some amazing photos thrown in.  She is so sweet and has a very similar vibe on her blog, go give her some love!  These are all the beauty products that I am using a lot more for Autumn, in my Autumn beauty lineup!

Autumn Beauty Lineup | Born To Be Bright


The first thing is this beautiful new Too Faced Beauty Balm I just got.  It has SPF 20 so it will keep my skin protected even when I don’t put an actual sunscreen on, this shade has a nice yellow undertone for me, and it looks even better as the day goes on.  I’m definitely a fan of this.

Next is this elf Hydrating Under Eye Primer I’ve had forever.  I just rediscovered how smooth my under eyes look when I use this primer.  I also have little or no creasing at all!  It’s so inexpensive and makes a big difference in my makeup.

I can’t have an Autumn beauty lineup post without a dark lip.  I have so many but this is my favorite formula.  It barely transfers, fades fairly gracefully for being a dark, and doesn’t dry out my already dry lips.  This shade is a beautiful one, a bit more red undertoned than a true purple lippie.  Sephora Lip Creams are bomb for the price, definitely pick some up.

Lastly is 3 of my top eyeshadows for Autumn.  As you can see they are all depotted for my Z Palette, which I use literally every day and love.  The square shade is Starlooks Gold Coast, a beautiful more natural type of gold.  This one is really pretty just all over the lid, but also looks awesome with the two other colors.  Mac Amber Lights on the left is a very orange-y copper color.  While this isn’t super pigmented, it looks so pretty washed into a shimmery eye look to warm things up.  This also looks awesome packed on the lid with a bronze shimmer in the crease, very Autumnal.  The last shadow is Mac Soft Brown, which Makena recommended to me and I love.  I didn’t think I would use this pink toned of a brown but I love just dusting it into my crease for every day or using it as a transition shade.  This one is so pigmented and very matte, right up my alley.  These three make a gorgeous eye look for something very coppery and Autumn-looking.

  • I LOVE your lineup! Your edits are always so amazing and this post was so much fun to collaborate on together! I am still in the summer makeup mode, so thinking about products I plan to use in Autumn was really exciting! I think your photos are always so nice! All of those eyeshadows look gorgeous and I am so sad because my Soft Brown broke and I haven’t been able to buy a new one yet, haha! I’ve never heard of that ELF under eye primer before, but now I’m really interested because my concealer never looks good if I have dry skin there! GOOD JOB!!! P.S. I’m sorry my post went up so late, but I thought I scheduled it before school, but it never published:) xoxo as always!

    • Thank you so much for collaborating with me! I totally agree, I’m still all in with my tinted moisturizers and summery makeup. Although I do love some good Autumnal shades! The ELF primer is so worth it, I think it’s $3 and my concealer never looks dry when I use it! THANK YOU for always being so supportive of me!! Don’t even worry about your posting time! Much love!

  • I’ve only used Elf’s eyelid primer before but this sounds really interesting, I may have to try it! I keep meaning to try Too Faced products, I think I’ll have to take the plunge soon! Beautiful eyeshadow shades too! Great picks 🙂

    • If you do get anything from Too Faced, try either the Hangover Primer or their Cocoa Powder Foundation. I love the primer and I’ve heard amazing reviews of the foundation! Thank you for commenting!
