Capsule Makeup Collection (Autumn)

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.

6 Thoughts on “Capsule Makeup Collection (Autumn)

  1. I’m now in the process of binge watching Melissa’s videos, what a great find! I started reading The Minimalists blog late last year and the wake-up-call I got regarding sentimental items was just amazing. I got rid of so much junk that I never looked at and felt so much better for it. It’s been a hard process slowly trying to adjust my habits but I’m getting there.

      It is a hard process, especially getting rid of sentimental items. But it always feels so much better afterwards. Good luck with adjusting your habits!

  2. I went on a bit of a makeup spending spree this last month so definitely not the best person to ask about a capsule makeup collection lol. Now my focus is using and enjoying what I have for a while.

      I go through phases, so I’m interested to see if this capsule wardrobe idea will last more than 1 season for me!
