Face of the Day


It was a glorious weekend in Central Virginia with the high temps in the 60s and sunny! Since it’s not quite cold (merely cool in the evenings), I’m still wearing bright shirts and lighter colors but I’ve given up on the instant tan I usually sport during the summer. Today’s weather is much the same so I decided to post a transitional makeup look that focuses mostly on the eyes.
I kept the eyes fairly neutral but with a hint of blue eyeliner on the upper lash and waterlines, a bit of contouring, a golden highlighter instead of blush and a sheer, berry lip. I think it’s perfect for these in-between days of Fall! This works well for the workday as it’s not too dramatic. You can even tone the eyes down more with a brown liner instead of the blue. See below for the products I used.
