The Autumn Base



With autumn in full swing I've switched things up base wise to keep up with the change in weather. Although I'm still madly in love with my Stila One Step Correct primer, I'm giving it a break and using the Tarte Clean Slate Flawless ($30) primer to prep my face. It's a lovely creamy primer that dries quickly on the skin and doesn't leave a weird silky film behind. It doesn't color correct as well as the Stila offering, but a heavier base hides anything it can't cover.

For foundation I've been making a mixture of three different products. Up first is my beloved L'Oréal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup ($12.99). It's a bit on the lighter side for me so I've been adding a blob of my NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in "St. Moritz" ($42) to darken things up a bit. Plus any excuse to use the tinted moisturizer! For the hell of it I've been plopping a dab of the Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm ($14). I'm not crazy about the scent of this; peppermint mixed with something medicinal. However when mixed with another product the scent isn't as overpowering. 

I still haven't gotten back into using powders despite my best efforts to give them an honest shot. I move swiftly on to applying blush without much thought of setting powders. I've been enjoying Tarte's "Fearless" ($26) as it provides a beautiful pink pop on the cheeks without looking overdone. 

This base lasts the entire day I'm running through an apple orchard or picking out pumpkins. It provides the perfect amount of glow without looking too dewy. It's definitely a winner.

What's your autumn base?

xoxo Kayla
