Early Fall look
You know the deal, its cooling down and there's a slight snap to the air. Stores are beginning to line their shelves with Fall decor and Autumnal fashion is officially in. So, its time to phase out the bold and bright shades of Summer and usher in those earthy tones and rich jewels. Today, we're showing you how to get this early Fall look, perfect for between-seasons!
We are going to start with the brows for this look. We brush through the hairs using the spoolie end of our Bella&Bear Iberian Lynx brow brush to neaten them up.
We then use the brush end to apply product to the brow. We use some Revolution brow pomade to define and fill in the brows. We then brush through the hairs again with the spoolie to disperse any excess product and achieve a softer finish.
Now, using our Bella&Bear fishing cat brush and some Essence Camouflage concealer we outline the brows to define the shape further. We pull the product outward to allow it to blend into our foundation seamlessly later on.
Lets work on the eyes now. We are going for an earthy look here. We start by working over the lids using some Kryolan shadow primer to give our shadows a strong base and make the colours more intense.
Now, using our Bella&Bear Sand Cat brush we are working a matte chocolate brown shadow all over the lid, blending it out on the crease and outer edge for a softer finish. We also take this all the way to the inner corner of the eye. You can build up the colour to a depth you prefer. We use the Delicious by Revolution.
Next, taking our Bella&Bear Marbled Cat we are pressing a brown shadow with gold glitter onto the centre of the lid. We chose the MUA Rusted Wonders palette here. Again, keep building this up until you are pleased with the result.
We want to define the eyes with some liner now to stop the dark colours from making them appear small. So, taking our Bella&Bear serval angled liner brush and some ELF Cream liner we are drawing a wing along the upper lash line.
Lets curl those lashes now for some lift. We use our Bella&Bear Eye and Mighty lash curlers to curl for 20-30 seconds on each eye, giving gorgeous lift and a fanned out effect. Lock that curl in with a coat of the TooFaced Better Than Sex Mascara.
Your eyes already look beautiful. But if you want to add a little extra, then go for some falsies like us. We are using our Bella&Bear Angled tweezers to place a set of the GWA Jungle falsies as close to the natural lash line as possible for an undetectable finish.
Its time to work on our base and face now! Starting with a primer of course! We use the Benefit Porefessional Pearl, working it over the skin to mask the pores and make a flawless base for our foundation.
Speaking of foundation, we are now using a full coverage one. We take the Estee Lauder Double Wear and we use our Bella&Bear Jaguar kabuki to work it over the face and slightly down the neck, working in downward and outward strokes for a streak free finish.
Lets go in with some concealer now too, to disguise any blemishes. Using our Bella&Bear Golden Cat conealer brush and some of that same concealer we are working the product over dark circles and blemishes to mask them.
We are going to have a matte skin for this look so we are now picking up our Bella&Bear Leopard face brush and using it with some Laura Mericer Translucent setting powder and we are dusting it over the face. If you prefer a dewy skin then simply only apply your powder on top of your concealer.
We lock that in place with a spritz of the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. Spritzing it in a 'X' across the face and then a 'T' down the centre.
Lets add a delicate hint of colour to the skin now. We are taking our Bella&Bear tiger brush and a matte dusty pink blush - we love Essence Matt Touch - and we are swirling it onto the apples of the cheeks in circular motions.
We also want to finish working on those eyes now - to really balance out the shadow. So, taking our Bella&Bear Sand cat brush again, we are working some of that same matte brown shadow along the lower lash line.
We also use some MUA Brown eye pencil to fill in the lower water line.
For something super cute, lets add some faux freckles! We are using some of the Revolution brow cushion and we are pressing it over the nose and cheeks using our Bella&Bear Caracal liner brush.
Once that has set we gently dust over them with our Bella&Bear Leopard brush to soften them and make them appear more natural.
Lets finish up with those lips now. We start by lining them using some Revolution Renaissance Liner in 'Blossom' to accentuate the shape. Then using our Bella&Bear Rusty Spotted Cat lip brush we paint the lips using some Revolution Renaissance lipstick in 'Blended' - we dont want to go all out berry pout just yet!
For our hair we are keeping it loose and lovely. We start by brushing through using our Bella&Bear Brush on you detangler for silky, tangle-free locks and we then use the comb to create a centre parting.
Now, we curl the hair using our straighteners and, once cooled, we brush it through again to make them nice and loose.
We finish by popping on our fave wool beret, keeping it in place with bobby pins.
All done! You look super cute and ready for some early Fall fun - decor shopping or even just to pick up your first PSL of the season! Don't forget to share your #bellaandbearbabe snaps with us over on Insta for a chance to be featured on our grid!
