I’m a basic girl when it comes to fall. I don’t care to admit it. I love my pumpkin spice lattes, long knit sweaters, boots, plum lipsticks, you know. Basic. I don’t know why we give that such a negative sounding label… what’s not to love about fall?
Here’s primarily what my wardrobe consists of during fall and winter. Neutral browns, blacks, and some plum lipsticks, a light matte foundation, and fall inspired eye shadows.
I love wearing a camel coat during fall/winter, because it goes with practically anything. It can be dressed up or down, but I mostly dress it down because I’m a frump and I like it that way. I especially love wearing oversized knit sweaters, because that means I can stock up on all the lattes and sweets and no one will notice my expanding belly until spring time. I can easily pretend like I tried to look ‘put together’ in my huge sweaters by simply adding some cute knee-high boots and a nicer handbag (I received a similar bag for Christmas last year!). Voila. Cute, yet cozy.
As far as makeup, my go-to for fall/winter is alwayyyys the Lorac Unzipped Palette. I wrote a review about it, here. It has all the colors you need to create a light or heavy autumn inspired look. When fall comes around I like to keep my foundations on the more matte side. I have no idea why, since my skin is dry and becomes more dry during fall/winter, but matte is what I like… so I reach for my Laura Mercier Flawless Fluide foundation every time (I also wrote a review about this one, here). And lastly, no fall look is complete without a dark, plum lip. I love the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Plum Paradise. It’s matte, yet creamy, and has great staying power.
Welcome to my basic life. I kinda like it. What does your wardrobe look like during fall?
