LOOK: Summer to Fall Makeup

Yesterday, Los Angeles hit a 113-115 degrees and it was the hottest day ever recorded in the history of L.A.  OMG, my skin felt like it was literally burning under the hot sun, I was sweating like crazy, the metal buckle on my purse was burning my arm and, I felt like I was dying. I've never killed so many water bottles in one day. At one point, I  didn't even want to leave to work where the a.c. was full blast lol

I don't know what's up with this weird weather but I hope this heat goes away soon and I am so ready for fall. With that being said, here is a makeup look combining burnt orange, shimmery burgundy and dark plum eyes with peach lips, colors that represents the transition from Summer to Fall. There is no video tutorial since it was too hot to film but I still hope you guys like it.








Mark Face Xpert liquid foundation in Golden




I used a burnt orange e/s on the inner 1/3 of the lid, shimmery burgundy e/s in the center and a dark plum on the outer corner and crease.






Revlon lipstick in Peach

eyes:

-Glamour Doll eyeshadow in Taylor (on the center of the lid)

-Wet and Wild lip liner in Willow (to line the natural lip line)
