Summer’s almost over and we’re slowly transitioning into autumn. (Though in southern California it still feels like we’re right in the thick of summertime!) With September upon us, it’s just a matter of time before the holidays sneak up on us, so I’m jumping into fall makeup right now!

The Look

Since we are still enjoying warm weather, I figured I’d do a summer/fall hybrid look. I headed to Kohl’s and picked up a few more items to make this look happen: I used the Cargo Summer in the City eyeshadow palette (which I showed you guys in my makeup haul and so many of you loved!) to add a golden bronze shimmery look to my eyes, a little bit of the Mr. Write Now eyeliner pencil by theBalm to add some definition, the LORAC PRO Fiber Mascara, and the Eylure false lashes in 080 for a little extra volume in my lashes. For my skin, I used the Time Balm Foundation by theBalm for the first time; it gave me excellent coverage and kept my dry skin hydrated. I also tried, for the first time, the Cargo HD Picture Perfect concealer in 3W and the LORAC PRO Contour Palette. To finish off the look and add an autumn touch, I used the LORAC Alter Ego lipstick in Secret Agent: The matte finish combined with the dark mauve/brown tone makes this the perfect color for fall!

The Giveaway

If you haven’t seen the video yet, have a look below. And if you have, let me know what you think in the comments! If you did like the video, I’m giving away 5 gift cards, each $200, that you can use at Kohl’s stores or and score all the products I used for this look if you want! Because of shipping issues, this giveaway will have to be restricted to US residents only, and all you have to do is leave a comment below and I’ll have an app randomly pick the 5 winners. Best of luck to all!!

Contest will end on September 17, 11:59a PST and winners will be announced September 18. (Be sure to leave a valid email address in the email field so I can get in touch with you if you win!)

Congratulations to the beauties below who won the giveaway for a Kohl’s gift card! As I mentioned, the winners were chosen via a plugin called “And The Winner Is…” which randomly generates however many winners you tell it to from all the comments. I so wish I could give it to each and every one of you! That’s why I make the random generator do it so I don’t have to pick. 🙂 Congrats, ladies!! I will be contacting you shortly to find out where the gift cards should be sent.

  • Rhea says:

    This look gets me excited for fall. It’s been a hot summer and I am ready for cooler weather. Love the gold tones on the eyes and the mauvy, brown lips. You make it look so effortless. As I was watching you apply eyeliner and false lashes, I asked myself how does she do it. My eyes are always twitching when I attempt to apply eyeliner with one hand. Lol. I guess I have to keep practicing. 😉

  • Tara says:

    Hi Teni
    First of all: I love you’re work you’re amazing!
    I’ve written you two comments on youtube and one on instagram a while ago asking you which camera (and what lens) you use for your headshots and close-ups (especially eye-make-up)? I do want to invest in a good camera and I just have no clue where to start and if anyone would ask me what kind of pictures I would like to achieve it would be just like yours! In your previous “How to start a blog” video you said you had the Canon T3i but now i’ve seen another comment of yours where you say you use the Canon 5 D? I would be so so grateful if you could help me with this camera issue as they are a lot of money and maybe also tell me what lens I would need?

    It would mean a lot to me. I hope you’ll never quit blogging you’re such a big inspiration!

  • Jennifer Tisdel says:

    Watched the video when you first posted to your SC/channel, and I loved this look so much I went out to buy the lipstick that day. Who knew Kohls had so many quality makeup brands in their stores?!

    The number of great products I’ve gotten just from watching your videos is astounding.
    VIB Rogue at Sephora for a reason haha 🙂

    You’re the best,
    kisses xj
