Lucy's Cruelty-Free Beauty and Living: Pumpkin Spice Inspired Cruelty Free Beauty Look

Pumpkin Spice Inspired Cruelty Free Beauty Look

Friday, October 2, 2015


Now with the Fall season upon us, everything is coming up pumpkin spice!  

This is NOT a post about beauty products containing pumpkin (although you may want to keep an out eye for a future post;).  I just couldn't help but think about all the Fall colors swirling around the different orange shades of pumpkin to cinnamon, and nutmeg...warm and rich shades of browns, golds, and even a hint of coral!  

So rather than hitting the stores, I opted to shop my stash and put together a look that I felt would work well for everyday and could easily be jazzed up to transition to something a bit fancier!



FACE
The first thing I did was take my Kaleidaskin Color Solve Primer in Red (meant to reduce redness) and applied that over my whole face.  I followed that up with my Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in 3.5.  This shade is a little light for me so I took my Tarte Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess and used it with a big fluffy brush to darken it up a bit.

EYES
 I gravitated to two palettes for this look, both from one of my favorite brands of all time...Too Faced <3.  Natural at Night and the Chocolate Bar are full of colors that scream pumpkin spice!

Chocolate Bar Shades:
Salted Caramel (all over the lid)
Marzipan (center of the lower lid)
Creme Brulee (brow bone and inner corner)

Natural at Night Shades:
Night Cap (along the lower lash line)
Cocoa Star (in the crease)
Eclipse (crease amplifier)

I took my Fior Minerals Organic Eyeliner in Brown Sugar (which I received in one of my Petit Vour boxes) and applied it on the upper lash line a little thicker on the outer ends.  I really wanted to keep the eyeliner low key since I am going for a simple day look.

From there I just finished up my eyes with my Lily Lolo Black Vegan Mascara (also from a Petit Vour box).

CHEEKS
I thought a coral hued blush would pair nicely with a pumpkin spice inspired look so I grabbed one of my favorite palettes.  I am so happy I picked up the Aqualillies for Tarte palette when it came out, because it was limited edition and it has gorgeous colors.  It actually became one of the first product reviews I did going back to 2013!  The blush shade, Captivating, has been one of my all time favorite blushes.

I also grabbed my Colourpop highlighter in the shade Wisp and used that to highlight my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, and my cupid's bow.

LIPS
I kept the lips super simple and reached for my new Elate Clean Cosmetics Creme Lipstick in the shade Lively.  Once again a Petit Vour item.  If you haven't checked out Petit Vour, you really should...it is a great cruelty free & vegan beauty subscription service.  I find great products and brands every month!
