This is just a casual days makeup with a sort of light orange/medium berry eye that definitely looks better in person rather than on my crappy phone - enjoy anyway!

I'm starting off here after putting my hair up out of the shower so I've nothing on my face. I'm not really doing much today or going out and its already late afternoon so I won't be wearing this too long and I decided not to moisturize since I'll be doing it again soon.
For foundation, I'm using my Clinique Even Better Foundation in #01 - Alabaster and buffing it in using my Flat Kabuki brush I picked up from Claire's.
I decided I would contour anyway today and in the normal bronzing areas I'm using a lip liner pencil from Kleancolor in Bronze to contour my forehead, temples, nose, cheeks and chin.
I highlighted my forehead, nose, under eye area and chin with my Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in #604 Milk
I blended everything in with my Elf Total Face Brush then added a bit of the bronzer from this Clinique palette in Sunkissed to my cheek bone contour using my Elf Bronzer Brush
I set everything with my Clinique pressed powder in #2 Stay Neutral with the same Elf Total Face Brush as before.
Using my Clinique Blush Brush, I applied the third blush in this Kleancolor palette: Make Me Blush - Stage Beauty to my cheeks and just above my cheekbones, I used the first color shown in the same palette.
For this subtle fall eye look, I'm using two additional Kleancolor palettes.
First I used a bit of Elf Eye Primer in Pearl on my eyelids.
Next I blended some of the 4th and 5th colors on the bottom Trickory palette which are a light orange and medium red.
Using the top Second Meaning palette, I brushed on some of the red on the outer lid with my Elf Blending Eye Brush and using my small Elf Concealer Brush, patted the deep chocolate berry color below it on the inner corner (yes the inner!) of my eyelid.
To finish my eyes, I used a retractable Wet n Wild Megalast cream eye liner in Noir to tightline and line my top eyelid as well as line my lower waterline.
I used the black lengthening and defining mascara from Elf (this is NOT my go to mascara by any means, I actually tend to dislike it, but its what I grabbed.) and also curled my lashes.
I wanted to do a red lip, but I'm still a bit afraid of doing the bright bold red, so I mixed it up a tad to tone it down but still have the rosy, red tint.
After putting on chapstick, I used my Kleancolor duo pencil in Plum to line my lips. I added some All Spicy lipstick from Kleancolor.
I used my bene tint lip stain from Benefit on top of that. Because I had already applied product, this didn't stain as a bright rid and instead mixed with the product that was already on my lips to tone down the color. I did two coats of this and followed it up with my bene balm form Benefit.
And there you have it - easy breezy beautiful casual Beso :P
