So, are you also amazed that 2018 is almost over? And that we’re getting ready to enter fall, then winter? Same! Here at Elizabeth Mott it feels like yesterday was January 1st and we were gearing up full a full year of product launches.
Wonder aside, now we’re here in the beginning of fall and can’t decide what look we should go for. From pumpkin patches to holiday parties the looks are endless! Fear not, makeup friends. We’ve got you covered. We’ll walk you through a few how to’s for simple, gorgeous look with some of our all-time favorite products.
What’s the first thing you think of when someone brings up fall makeup? Lips, lips, lips! Oh la la. ‘Tis the season for dark, cranberry lips. We love a good long-lasting lip as well, so we whip out our Color is Bae Liquid Lipstick.
Color us Bae obviously has a lovely range (nudes, spring colors, and fall) but, duh, we have a theme to stick with here, people. We’d recommend choosing either Plumscible, Chili Red, or Daringly Red. You can’t go wrong with this long-lasting formula that glides on smoothly and stays put, your lips are sealed with an ultra-matte, fall-fabulous finish!
Next is eyes. We can’t forget the eyes, can we? Soft, glittery eyes are always so, so, so trendy this time of year! First, apply our Thank Me Later Eye Primer so your eye look doesn’t crease later while you’re out enjoying life. Next, grab our Natural Palette since it has the perfect colors.
Use Nearly Nude, which is a beige matte, as your base color. Place it over the eyelid and even up toward the brow bone to make blending easier. Then take Golden Brown and blend it into the crease.
HOT TIP: Make sure you’re tapping your brush out every time, so you don’t deposit too much eye shadow and end up blending your day away. Work smarter, not harder—you can always build up your look, but taking it down requires more effort.
Once your Golden Brown is blended, take Thunder Cloud, a black shimmer, and blend it into the outer crease and outer corner of the eye. This gives your look more dimension. If you want to keep it softer, just skip Thunder Cloud.
Next, grab Pop! Goes the Shadow in Champagne. Pop it onto the inner corner of your eyes and on your brow bone.
Almost done with the eyes—the next step is to define those gorgeous eyes with the handy No Lie Cat Eye. A quick flick of the wrist for a killer cat eye.
Don’t forget to top off your lashes with either It’s So Long or It’s So Big, and bam! You have a glittery, show-stopping look!

Face it, you’re a fa-la-la-la-bae!
For your face, we want to focus on warming it up, not necessarily do a full-blown contour with this look. So grab our Contour Palette and dust your bronzing shade (either the cool or warm toned one—whichever compliments your undertones) across your temples, into your hairline, your jaw, and just below your cheeks.
Next is blush and highlighter! Show Me Your Glow is the perfect product for this look. Dust it over your cheek bones, middle of your forehead, cupid’s bow, and tip of your nose. For blush, Show Me Your Cheeks in Soft Pink is the obvious choice. It’s softer looking and will just pull the entire look together!
