I’m always so inspired by first autumn days and the great light that they bring. For me it’s a little bit like spring, a new start and the feeling to create something new! After reentering from vacations, our skin is beautiful, maybe still touched by the sun. With all this divine beauty the everyday makeup should be enhanced with soft autumn inspired earth tonalities that suit every skin.
I have found inspiration from the Pucci runway where they presented a beautiful natural look for fall. Emilio Pucci is especially close to my heart because I worked as a make-up artist for them when I lived in Milano. It was a great experience! I loved being around the 70’s inspired Pucci signature prints and all that glamourous dresses! I also loved the fact that they wanted me to create a nice and natural look for the models, in the same mood like this one on the pictures today. When the dress is so rich in print and hand-crafted glamour the best way is to wear a delicate make-up and a simple hairstyle. Let me show you how to achieve this quick but beautiful make-up step by step. What is more, you will also have the opportunity to recreate it at home because I’m offering again a FANTASTIC GIVEAWAY with amazing green products!
How to create this makeup look
Prepare your skin with a good organic moisturizer and follow with a light layer of your favorite foundation. It can be liquid foundation or mineral powder. The best option is to use just a tinted moisturizer, especially if your skin is perfect.
Apply a few generous coats of mascara on previously curled eyelashes.
Groom your eyebrows and if needed fill them with an eyebrow pencil.
4. and 5. step
With the Lily Lolo mini kabuki brush sweep a soft layer of Lavera blush in Shimmering apricot on your cheeks and eyelids. Your face will look fresh and slightly sculpted. You can also use an eyeshadow brush for a precise application.
Enhance your lips with Lily Lolo lip gloss in English rose – a beautiful neutral rose shade suitable for everyone.
That’s all! So quick, easy and perfect for autumn days!
