autumn make-up

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

1. step

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.

2. step

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.

    Very pretty look! What do you recommend for a natural mascara that doesn’t run or flake? I always end up looking like a raccoon!

      Hi Holly! Now that the giveaway is finished I reply to your question. I love very much Living nature mascara as well as 100%pure. They are quite dense and they work great for me as well as when I apply them on other people. Hope was helpful 🙂 Best, Dasha

    1) I love autumnal looks- if I could pick just one type of makeup look, I’d stick with that one. The Lavera blush in apricot is gorgeous! I’m gushing, because I have a hard time finding a blush that is good for my light-medium, warm skin tone. Also, I’m kind of in love with Badger balms. I haven’t tried the stress soother, but I think I’ll need it for when I get to grad school! 😀 Thanks for having such a lovely giveaway.

    Dear Dasha,
    may I be as beautiful as the model in the first pic? Maybe not, but the make-up you and Ecco-Verde are giving away would be really helpful! 😉 Joking aside, the most important thing of green make up is enhancing one’s natural beauty and this encourages an inner process.
    A couple of questions: if the liquid foundation is moisturizing by itself, can we skip the first step with the moisturizer? What do you think about thermic lash curlers?
    Keep up the good work and a presto! *

      Hi Mara!
      -Yes you can absolutely skip the moisturizer, otherwise you have too much layers. You want the make-up to look natural and flawless, while enhancing your skin.
      -I’m not a fan of thermic lash curlers. I have tried some of them, but I prefer the usual curler. I love the Japonesque curlers, they come in various shapes. Regarding thermic curlers I have the same thoughts as for the hair curlers. When you treat your hair everyday with temperature that is not normal, you will just end up with damaged hair. I have seen these too many times and even good hairdressers know that is not ok for your hair(in our case lashes) to use such a high heat everyday.
      Best, Dasha

    The makeup is awesome, just like autumn.I love the fact that you have shown different types of girls, it is very useful (and pretty) see different ethnycities. I’m specially excited about this giveaway, as I love Ecco-verde but it doesn’t sell to my country, so this is a great opportunity! Lily Lolo and Badger Balm are fantastic and I haven’t tried the products you offer. I haven’t tried Lavera at all, but I really adore peachy colours, so it sounds fun! Thanks!

      Hi Raquel! Are you sure that Ecco-verde does not sell in your country? Please email them and ask if they do? Because I’m almost sure they ship in all EU countries. Go on their website .com

    I love natural looks, so this is right up my alley. I have also been looking for a shade of blush that works with my skin… I have light skin with pretty strong yellow undertones, so everything seems to be too obvious on me (which I hate). I will definitely look into this Lavera blush… I like quite a few of the makeup items they do. I’ve also seen Lily Lolo mentioned in quite a few places but have not had a chance to try their products. Maybe I’ll be lucky this time!

    August 27, 2012 at 5:38 pm (11 years ago)

    Love the make up! It’s an everyday makeup suitable for everyone, and I myself do a makeup similar to this often in autumn. totally love the lavera blush, looks natural but still gives that pretty glow 😀
    Sadly here not a lot of green products, just some and quite expensive

    I love how natural and easy these looks are! I have quite pale skin so this blusher would be great to create a really rosy, autumn look. I’ve heard of both Lily Lolo and Badger before but I haven’t tried any of the products above and I would love to! I a huge fan of natural products too so this would be great to win!

    The looks are about glowy skin and natural makeup. I didn’t know pink can be so flattering on neutral skin tone. Awesome products!

    Absolutely stunning! I could relate.This is the kind of make-up look I always try to achieve because I prefer my bold coloured outfits to stand out more than my make-up, especially on a normal day. Would use these products everyday without a doubt! thank you for the opportunity.

    I only discovered your blog a few weeks ago and I really love it!!! I´m using natural products since I was 12 – so I really grew up with it. Still love the brands that I discovered then, Weleda, Lavera and Dr.Hauschka. I love this fresh look – would really be happy to recreate it with such beautiful products. I follow your blog + will like it on twitter and facebook (@EmmaWessels).

    I’m looking forward to fall makeup, too! I prefer nuetral looks, and the fall is the perfect time to deepen those calors to a more earthy, no makeup look.

    What you write about the fall is soo true! the light is my favorite light of the year and the skin often still has a bit of a summer glow in it. Although i also have to say that my skin in the fall also has a hard time adapting to the changing conditions. therefore I often use cream products. Especially the lavera blush (although not creamy) sounds perfect for the fall, not too bright, not too orange not to bronzer-ish… just fresh and natural.

    Btw I follow your blog regularly and love the combination of great writing (and not tooo long ;)) and your experience from your work! Way too go!!!!

    Greetz! Liv
