Makeup Tutorial: A Runway-Ready Look For Fall

UPDATE: This post originally ran on September 12th but we wanted to re-watch this makeup tutorial for some weekend inspiration!

As we make the transition from summer to fall, there are changes you can make to your beauty routine as well to prepare your skin. In this video our makeup artist April shares her tips on the best products to use in fall — for example, a heavier moisturizer and cream blushes to keep your skin looking fresh and dewy as opposed to powdery and dried out.  Watch the video featuring lovely model Martha Streck for more tips and to learn how to get this beautiful runway-ready red lip for fall!

  1. Would it be possible to do a video that is step by step like some of your other tutorials
    ? Where the make up artist is explains each step?

  2. Is the “foundation” considered the Laura Mercier tint moister? if not what type of foundation did she use or what moisturizer did she use to pre the skin! My skin is in need a a good moisterizer for the cold months ahead!

  3. Hello there!

    Which tone of Mac Pro sculpting cream did you use?
    The links brings me to “Coffee Walnut” but it seems much darker to me.

    Thank you! :)
