One of my best friends decided to start up something called Pot Luck Dinner Club, where once every 6 months or so we all meet up at someone’s house for a themed dinner party (to which we all bring a dish). The ‘pilot’ dinner party was a Vegetarian Mexican Fiesta, and I decided to slap on my Autumn Capsule Makeup
for the evening and share it with you all. Here’s what I wore: Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundation in Perfect Ivory, YSL Touche Eclat in #1, Laura Mercier Loose Powder in Translucent, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Ethereal Glow, Urban Decay Primer Potion, NARS Kalahari Eye Duo, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Hustle, Hourglass Brow Arch in Soft Brunette, Lancome Hypnose Mascara, Chanel Lipstick in ‘Rivoli’.
I watched quite a few of Melissa Alexandria’s
videos during the week, and started feeling motivated to streamline my possessions. I feel like this change has been coming for some time now and I’ve kind of been doing it in a gradual manner over the past year or so (in small ways), but I think I’m going to be embracing minimalism a lot more moving forward. I decided to start by building a capsule makeup collection for Autumn, as it’s around the time that I start digging out some of the more cold-weather friendly shades (gimme those deep plum lips!). Here is what I put together for my Autumn capsule makeup collection –
Foundation – Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundation in Perfect Ivory
Highlighter – YSL Touche Eclat in #1
Blush – Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Ethereal Glow
Eyeshadow – Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in Shell
Event Eyeshadow – NARS Eye Duo in Kalahari
Eyeliner – Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Hustle
Eyebrow Pencil – Hourglass Brow Arch in Light Brunette
Mascara – Lancome Hypnose
Lip Product – Fresh Tinted Lip Conditioner in Rose
Standout Lip Product – Chanel Lipstick in Rivoli
Let me know if you choose to do something similar this season, because I’d love to know which products you decide fit into your capsule collection.
