You eye smoky, peach-tone looks perfect for fall. Your everyday palette just won’t cut it. Creating a stunning fall makeup look can be daunting…and expensive. You don’t need to rely on Sephora to create professional-looking eye makeup. Instead, use less expensive products that from your local drug store.
Keep reading for 10 affordable beauty products that can add to your fall look.
1. Elf Blush Palette
As the seasons get colder, we get paler. Combat the dullness of Winter by adding color back into your complexion. Elf blushes are creamy, easy to blend and affordable. Each pallet has four warm-tone shades and comes in a light and dark variety, perfect for every skin tone.
2. Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter
For a glow that outlasts the sun’s early setting time, use Maybelline’s Master Chrome Highlighter. It’s long lasting, flattering and thoroughly blinding. It comes in two amazing shades. Opt for a rosy look in the daytime and a golden look at night with the different shades of the Master Chrome Highlighter. The pan size is huge, as well, so you won’t worry about running out.
3. Loreal Pro Infallible Foundation
When you want to go full out, a simple brow and mascara will not cut it. Use foundation to cover up imperfections without feeling and looking cakey. College student Alex said, “It adds just enough coverage.” The foundation comes in matte and glow varieties, appealing to all skin types. Supposed to last all day, this foundation can sustain any snow, rain or wind the Autumn weather may throw at you.
4. Physician’s Formula The Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid Lipstick
Liquid lipstick outlasts your busy day perfect. Physician’s Formula is light and non-drying unlike other liquid lipsticks. The pointed applicator makes the product easy and quick to apply. With a wide shade range, the line has everything you need from a warm-toned berry color (Berry Healthy) to more nude options (All-Natural Nude).
5. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
No matter the season, a dramatic lash is always in style. New York University Sophomore Rhea said, “[Lash Sensational is] the best mascara I have ever used. It beats expensive brands.” This mascara will separate, lengthen and blacken lashes easily. It will not flake out throughout the day. Bring on the tears—this mascara will not crack under the pressure.
6. Maybelline Facestudio Master Fix Setting and Perfecting Loose Powder
Don’t avoid setting powder because of the fall’s dry air. Keep the powder to the center of the face, where the face produces more oil naturally. Maybelline’s Facestudio Master Fix Setting Powder is finely milled and will not make you look cakey or emphasize any dry patches.
7. Milani Color Statement Lipstick
If liquid lipstick isn’t your schtick, this Milani traditional stick lipstick makes a great option year-round. As your lips adjust to the cooler weather, they’ll crack and chap. That’s not the case with Milani’s Lipstick, though. Its pigmented color payoff, long-lasting power and hydrating qualities ensure your lips look luscious from the start of the day to the end.
8. Wet ‘n’ Wild Eyeshadow Quad
Small eyeshadow palettes from the drugstore pigment your lids just as much as enormous pro palates from Ulta. Wet ‘n’ Wild’s Eyeshadow quads, at your local drugstore for years, pack a big punch in its small container. Plus you can pick a quad for every mood from natural to smoky to full glam. The shadows are pigmented, easy to blend and buildable.
9. Elf Makeup Mist and Set
Setting your makeup is a key last step to any routine to ensure your makeup will stay on all day, no matter the weather. This setting spray’s fine mist is user-friendly. It noticeably increases the longevity of your makeup.
10. Rimmel Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner
Lip liners lock in the pigment you just picked up in the drugstore beauty aisle. Rimmel’s liners are creamy and extremely pigmented. The automated tip deletes the necessity for sharpeners making them accessible and convenient. The range has tons of colors perfect for fall, like Eastend Snob. It can be worn on its own or transformed with a lipstick or liquid lip paired on top.
