From metallic eye makeup to bronzed cheeks, this easy-to-follow Fall 2015 makeup tutorial shows how to effortlessly and quickly create runway-inspired looks with Walgreens beauty products.
With New York Fashion Week quickly approaching, tastemakers and style mavens everywhere are buzzing about all the new fashion and beauty trends that will be making their debut on the runways. Since we’re in the midst of shifting into a new season, now’s the perfect time to start transitioning your beauty look from summer into fall.
Fall 2015 Makeup Tutorial with Walgreens Beauty
To show you how to create looks inspired by the runway (but suitable for everyday occasions), the Inspirations & Celebrations’ Fall 2015 Makeup Tutorial teaches you how to get a soft and sultry day-to-night look. In collaboration with Walgreens Beauty, in just a few easy steps (and with a couple affordable, convenient beauty products) you can quickly and effortlessly create the look of one of fall’s hottest makeup trends (metallic bronze eye makeup).
From Eva Mendes’ cosmetics line (Circa) and Botanics skincare to Essie Nail Polish and Boots No7 makeup line, Walgreens carries a wide variety of easy-to-use beauty products that are perfect for trying new beauty trends and techniques.
To boost the natural radiance of your skin before applying face makeup, lightly apply the No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum to freshly cleansed skin. Good skincare helps create a beautiful canvas (great skin) to work on, which is one key to flawless makeup.
To start, using clean fingers or a foundation brush, apply a mattifying, complexion-evening foundation all over your face. Next, fill-in and shape your eyebrows by lightly filling in sparse areas with brow powder.
To warm up your complexion, using a fluffy blush brush, sweep the No7 Perfectly Bronzed Mosaic Bronzer (which is a pretty mix of bronze and pink hues) along your cheeks.
To give your face a more chiseled, angular appearance, lightly sweep the bronzer underneath your cheekbones, along your jawline, around your hairline, and underneath the tip of your nose. This not only gives your skin a soft, sun-kissed look, it also helps create definition in your face.
To make your eyes sparkle this season, opt for warm metallic eye makeup in bronze and copper tones. To add a hint of reflection to your eyes, starting from the outer corner going inward, rim the waterline with Circa Color Saturated Eye Crayon (in Pure Topaz). The shimmer draws light to your eyes, giving them a radiant, effervescent appearance.
For extra sparkle and pizazz, apply the gorgeous bronze hued Nonie Creme Colour Prevails Eye Shimmer Powder to the outer corners of your eyes along the lash-line and into the crease.
What’s great about this versatile eye makeup is that it can be subtle (use your finger or a q-tip to gently blend and diffuse the makeup), or it can be dramatic (when applied in layers all over the eyelids).
Whether you have brown eyes or blue eyes, bronze and copper shades make your eyes pop, which is what makes this makeup so universally-friendly.
For megawatt lashes, brush on two coats of No7 Lash Impact Mascara. The look this season is all about deep, mysterious eyes and dramatic lashes. That’s why a volume-boosting, lash-building mascara is the fastest way to get thick, lush lashes without adding falsies.
Last, but certainly not least, to finish off this subdued but sexy Fall 2015 makeup look, swipe a little pink gloss (like the Circa Lustrous Shine Lip Polish in Chiffon Glow) on your lips. The shine makes your lips glisten while adding a hint of natural-looking color that doesn’t compete with the rest of your makeup.
Whether you want to update your everyday look by incorporating one of the Fall 2015 makeup trends into your makeup routine, or you just want to try out a new look for a special occasion, the Walgreens beauty department offers a wide assortment of on-trend, affordable beauty products and cosmetics that help you go from runway to the real way, easily and effortlessly.
