Fall Makeup Finds and Everyday Fall Makeup Look

I promised to speak more in depth about some of my recent fall beauty finds. This week's video shares these finds with you as well as shows a two part tutorial: my everyday fall le no makeup look and an amplified version.

Fall makeup finds:

CHANEL Perfection Lumiere Velvet- for me, this is matte makeup perfection. I love this foundation and relied on it when I gave my TEDx talk (I did not want to look shiny on stage with all of those bright lights on me) and it performed! You must shake it side to side before applying. Then put a small amount on your fingers and apply with your fingertips. This foundation is not to be applied any other way. You would not use a beautyblender, brush or makeup sponge to apply this foundation. I love a good matte foundation for fall/ winter and this one is my favorite so far! I know it's pricey so if you have any drugstore or less expensive matte foundation recommendations, please leave them for us in the comment section below.

YSL Volume Effet Faux Clis mascara in burgundy
Yes you read that correctly: burgundy mascara. I know! It is not something I would have ever considered but I've heard from many people that burgundy mascara is very natural-looking and flattering and can bring out the intensity of green or hazel eyes. It's all true! I love this beauty find and think it's perfect for fall.

Hourglass ambient blush in mood exposure. You can use any plumy or deep rose blush and it would look perfect for fall. This is the one I am using today.

L'Oreal Paris Infallable Never Fail Lip Color in mulberry. This is a marvelous drugstore find. If you've had bad experiences in the past with lip stains that fade in the middle, dry your lips and don't last you will not be disappointed with this lipstick. I happened upon it at the drugstore and thought I'd give it a try. It's a two part system. Apply the gloss to clean, dry lips and let it sit for two minutes. Then restore moisture and seal in the color with the lip balm attached. A great lipstick that literally lasts 8 to 12 hours through meals, drinks and everything.

These are some of my favorite fall makeup finds. Do you have any to share with us? If you have any "dupes" or drugstore versions of the higher-end products, please let us know in the comment section below.

Madame Chic Inspiring Thought
Focus on one feature you'd like to highlight this week, such as your eyes or your lips, and develop a no makeup look to support that. Frame your pretty eyes with a natural mascara or break out that plummy lipstick you rarely use and switch up your makeup routine. Embrace your femininity and celebrate your beauty in a way that's fun and true to your style.

Comment of the Week
The comment of the week comes from Bronwyn, who writes regarding last week's post, Eat Lunch With No Distractions:

After years of getting crumbs at my work keyboard, to now being a stay at home wife and picking at food from 11-2pm, today I had a Madame Chic lunch.

I knew I would enjoy savouring my food, but I was also surprised to re-learn the lesson "How you do anything is how you do everything". This morning I hadn't bothered to dress nicely (slaps wrist), wearing comfortable clothes suited to the dreary day here.. and if I am totally honest look a little like pajamas, at least when worn together.

As I was eating my nicely prepared and dressed lunch I just felt uncomfortable wearing such slouchy clothes, and ended up changing into another pair of trousers that I'm much more comfortable answering the door in!! Suddenly I feel much more motivated to get my tasks done.

Bronwyn, I love your testimonial! You have motivated us to live better at home with your story. Thank you!

I love reading your comments, observations, musings and testimonials. Even though I am unable to reply to each one, I read them all. Also, you never know, your comment might be picked as comment of the week!

See you soon x

I smiled when you found it awkward to put on eye shadow after applying your mascara Jennifer. We women with deep set eyes have to do that all the tim, otherwise we have mascara spotted eye shadow.

It's all a matter of what you are used to I guess.

That was fun to watch, thanks. I have written L'OREAL to find out if the lip colour is gluten free. Serious issue for Celiacs. I'll let you know incase there are others out there like me.

When I was in my "goth light" phase a few years back, I used to use an eye shadow that Chanel came out with called Night Magic... or maybe it was Magic Night. Anyway, it was that really dark plummy color (at the time, I called it Dried Blood. Which is prettier than that makes it sound.) I used it at the outer corners of my eyes and as an eyeliner. It really made my green eye color pop! I'd love to try the mascara, but can't justify paying department store prices for something that drugstore brands do so well. I'll have to check to see if this color has trickled down to the mainstream yet the next time I'm in Rite-Aid.

Having bought, read and very much enjoyed your first book, Jennifer, I have now bought and am reading the second. It is most enjoyable and even at my great age (over which I will draw a veil) I am still learning a few tips from it.
As for makeup, I recently took up the offer of having my skin tested in Boots (UK chemist chain) and, lo and behold, I'd been using the wrong shade of foundation and lipstick. Yes, this could be a good advertising ploy but I have to say that once the beautician had applied the 'correct' shades I did look a lot better. But Burgundy mascara? As I have green eyes, this might be worth a punt!

Great post. txs.

I like the matte makeup from Maybelline called - Dream Matte Mousse in the jar. Yes I also apply with my fingers only.

Here is a link for details.

The L'OREAL lipstick intrigued me, so I made a quick drugstore run this morning. I purchased it both in mulberry and garnet . . . for half price! Then I was told the product was on sale, because it is being discontinued. So glad I bought two. The packaging is a bit awkward, but the colors are lovely, and the product really did last all day. Thank you for your recommendation. The two I purchased should take me right through fall/winter.

I just purchased the YSL mascara, can't wait for it to get here. I have green eyes, so I think this will look great!

I'm about a month away from running out of BB Cream, so I'm going to give the Chanel foundation a try.

Thanks for the suggestions, Jennifer!

I bought the L'OREAL lipstick in mulberry yesterday and tested it out for a day of wine tasting...it lasted all day! I think I may need to find a few more colors now!

I can't quite bring myself to pay $50 for mascara, but I love Cover Girl Exact Eyelights in Black Ruby. (Hard to find in the drugstore but always in stock at Ulta.) Almay has had some purple/burgundy shades in the past but I find them too smudgy and hard to wash off. I also liked Benefit Bad Gal Lash in plum, but they seem to have discontinued it (isn't that always the way...)
