Stay Glowing for Fall
With the weather turning and fall creeping in, it's easy to go from glowing to gloomy in no time flat. Keep the spirit of summer alive with a few key makeup looks from Samantha Chapman, celebrity makeup artist, #1 YouTube Beauty Guru in the UK, and force behind Real Techniques makeup brushes. Armed with the right tips and tools, it's easy to achieve an enviable end of season style.
"Some of the most glam, modern looks I've seen during the warmer months are dewy skin, bright eyes and bronzed goddess beauty," says Chapman. "There is no reason to stop rocking these trends now they can look really fresh into the first months of fall. Real Techniques makes it simple with our best-selling makeup brush sets."
Swap your full coverage foundation for a tinted moisturizer to provide a healthy, dewy glow. All the brushes needed to create an airbrushed canvas are in the Real Techniques core collection ($18). Use the buffing brush to apply the tinted moisturizer, the contour brush to set with powder through the T-zone or just where it's needed and the pointed foundation brush to apply concealer where more coverage is required.
"A pop of cool, ocean-inspired color on the lids makes eyes appear larger and adds a fun contrast to skin tone," says Chapman. Get this look with the Real Techniques starter set ($18) by using the base shadow brush to apply a wash of bright aqua eye shadow across the lid and the deluxe crease brush to blend the shadow upward towards the brows. Finish it off with a beautiful winged cat liner using a blue gel that can be applied with either the fine liner brush or the angled eyeliner brush. When the cold really kicks into high gear, this look can easily be updated using a jewel-toned shadow.
