Go to Fall Makeup Looks!

Hello my beautifuls! I decided to show you guys my fall looks, which is basically my everyday look with a warmer tone. I am not going to show or tell you what products I personally use because I don’t want you to feel limited to those products! Take this look and make it your own. I will only show you my strategy and you can do with it however you feel best! ūüôā

Fall is my favorite time of year so fall looks will be very usual on my blog so be prepared! But this look is special! I collaborated with a good girlfriend of mine! You can find her at Lunalovehim.blogspot.com and she also has a youtube channel! Go check her out because she has more in depth fall looks that I know you will love!

First I will show you the look I came up with and then I will show you her beautiful go to look.

For my go to fall look this is a more subtle and warm look. I go simple on everything but the eyes. I use a dark shade in my crease that draws attention to the entire face and the rest of the eye is light and gentle. The reason I only do a dark crease is that when doing a darker lip or a full smokey type eye you lose that blendable look where everything pulls together evenly without one aspect of your makeup being more dominant than the other. A dark crease draws the attention to the eye and then the rest of the look take action and you will seemingly have a beautifully pulled together look that can be a little dramatic.

For the lips I perfer a brown tone nude because it seemlessly fits into every fall look. The look I did you can easily make a darker lip but if you want the seemless and pulled together look you might want to darken the eyes a little. Over all I went with warm undertones which reminds me of fall!

My good friend took a bolder look which is also perfect for the fall! She went with a dark lip and a light eye which couldn’t look better!

She pulled off the perfect vampy lip color with a simple eye look!

L’Oreal True Match Foundation Review

Hey guys! I have yet another review for you. It is one that many beauty bloggers have raved and talked about but there were a few things I noticed while using this foundation that was never mentioned in reviews that I had seen so I wanted to share my thoughts with you!

The L’Oreal True Match Foundation is one of the most raved about foundations in the beauty world and I had never tried it so I figured it was time for me to hop on the band wagon. It is a liquid foundation that has SPF in it. It doesn’t claim to be long wearing, matte, or anything significant other than easily blendable.

This foundation is very thin and a little goes a long ways. It applies very smoothly and evenly on the face. Though after first application of the foundation I noticed that the formula was more matte and it seemed very powdery. When finished setting I noticed the dry sections I had on my face were more accentuated. I almost took this foundation off because it just seemed so powdery and drying but for the sake of the review I was a trooper and wore it through the day.

Wearing throughout the day it seemed to get better the longer it was on my face. The more my face produced natural oils the better this foundation looked. I never had to touch up with powder and it was very long wearing. I applied this foundation at 11:00am and went to the fair at 4:00pm and didn’t get home until 12:00am and when going to remove my makeup I found that the foundation was still applied fully and looked flawless on the skin. I was not oily even though I spent all day in the heat running around which is a big plus in my book and probably one in all of those who have oily skin! This foundation is definitely long wearing!

Overall the foundation is amazing and the negative things I found about it can easily be worked around with different application choices and ensuring that the skin is moisturized before application and the longer this is on the better it looks because it works well with the natural oils your face produces so I suggest that you apply this 30 minutes before you plan on going out and it should leave you looking stunning and flawless!


Here is a before and after. This foundation is medium coverage as you will be able to see on my face!


Here is a photo about an hour after the foundation is applied!

Hope this review helped! 

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms and Lacquer Balm Review

Hey Guys! 

I hope you were able to keep up with all of the sudden blog changes Hotdougandbun.com under went! 

I wanted to do a review for you guys since fall is upon us and all anyone is talking about is lips lips lips! I am not the biggest fan of lip products I usually slap on a tinted balm so when I heard about these Revlon Colorburst Balms I had to try them out! I only picked up one in the Lacquered Balm and four of the Matte Balms and they are amaaaaazingly pigmented! I can not express that more to you! The pigmentation is insane in these balms, so insane you wouldn’t even think that they were a balm.¬†

The Lacquered Balm goes on smooth and has an extreme shine factor. I¬†particularly am not a fan of such shine but if you are a shiny glossy girl there is nothing I can say bad about the Lacquered balms! Definetly a winner in my book and I need to get more of the Lacquered Balms. They have a large color range and they aren’t high priced! They last on the lips about 2 hours and fade evenly on the lips so you don’t look like some crazy lady with patchy lip color!¬†


Now for the Revlon Matte Balms the colors are phenomenal! These are once again very pigmented! But the formula is a little off in my opinion. Being a matte they do sink into the lip lines and highlight every little flaw in the lips so exfoliating the lips are a must before using this product. The Matte Balms go on very creamy and smooth but a matte to me means it drys and has intense staying power. These never seem to be very matte they are creamy and smooth and the only difference between these and the lacquered balms is the shine. To me not having a shine does not make them matte. 


The staying power on both the lacquered and matte balms is about 2 hours then you should wipe the product off before reapplying or they tend to get a little gross. The reason I go for mattes is for the staying power and the Revlon Matte Balms do not have more lasting power than the lacquer balms and in my opinion if I am not getting the benefits of the matte I would rather have the lacquer. 

Overall the Revlon Lacquer and Matte Balms are impressive. The pigmentation is on point and literally these are worth it just for that. These are both creamy and smooth and feel nice on the lips they are not drying at all. The only problem I had was the staying power of the mattes. 

I picked up one Lacquered and four Mattes. Here are lip swatches to show how great they look!
