The Fall Makeup Edit (2020)

MAC raizin Blush, NARS Savage blush, NARS Noumea and Guayaquil Eyeshadow, Revlon Raisin Rage, Chanel Antoinette, Beccay Maui Nights, Clinique WN 82 Latte, Chanel pourpre profound, Dior Sienna

I decided to pick out some products to focus on this season. I don’t usually care whether a particular shade coordinates with the season, but I wanted to try something different this year. This assortment went in a somewhat monochromatic direction, which is a look I don’t mind. But I’ll see how long it lasts before I want to swap any of these out.

Foundation – Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer (WN 82 Latte)

For my dry skin, this is the best-looking finish on my skin that I have come across. The brand claims a natural matte finish, which I always assume means satin, and I would agree with that. I have no issues with wear time, but due to my dry skin, I hardly ever do. While it does last throughout the day, it is not transfer-proof or resistant. I have worn it on its own, but it transfers easily. So I prefer to set it with powder. The powders that I do not find to change the beautiful finish are the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural and the now discontinued MAC Next to Nothing Powder.

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick (Golden Honey and Golden Swatches)

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick in golden (W-074/previously 6) and golden honey (W-068/previoulsy 5.75)
Top: Golden (6) | Bottom: Golden Honey (5.75)

The Macy’s 10 Days of Glam continues today with the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick on sale for $23.50. This foundation has a beautiful natural satin finish on my dry skin type. I do use heavy oil-based moisturizers, so that may make a difference. It has medium coverage that I’d say is slightly buildable to full. I do have some hyperpigmentation and acne scars that it doesn’t completely cover. I don’t have an issue with that, but I wanted to mention it since the brand claims it has medium to full coverage.
