FOTD: Fall Look -The Balm Matte Eyes and Burgundy Lips

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another Fall Face of the Day!  I was headed to brunch with the girls and I really wanted to finally use my Meet Matte Palette by the Balm.  It ended up turning into a look that I've wanted to do for a long time - a gray smokey eye and burgundy lip.  Check it out!


I've been wanting to do this color combo ever since last year when I saw Melissa Gorga from The Real Housewives of New Jersey on the Wendy Williams Show.
It turns out that the Meet Palette has a bunch of gorgeous gray tones.  I don't typically do cool shades but I like these shades for the fall.  On the eyes I chose a mix of gray, peach and taupe shades.  I also used another Balm product, Cabana Boy blush.  It's a great, deeper mauve blush tone for the fall.
On the lips I went for a classic - MAC Diva lipstick.  I lined with Ben Nye's Vino lip pencil, one of my favorites.

The final look!



I forgot that Diva was a matte finish.  So if you're like me, pop a gloss on top if you're prone to dry lips.  Hope you enjoyed!  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
