Get this look with beauty expert, Holly Gowers

It's officially Fall, and the weather shouldn't be the only thing that's changing---your makeup should, too. Here is an easy, every day look that is on trend with the season's hottest styles. 

Apply foundation and concealer where needed. Top with a light dusting of powder on your t-zone.
Apply CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in 230 Lush Berry on the apples of your cheeks using a synthetic blush brush, a makeup sponge or your fingers.
Apply CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in 200 Plush Peach on your cheek bones using a synthetic blush brush, a makeup sponge, or your fingers.
Gently blend the blush using a circular motion. 
If you are on the oily side, you may add more powder to set the cream blush.  I love switching over to cream blushes for the fall because they give a fresh, youthful look.

Using CoverGirl Smoky Shadow Blast in Bronze Fire 815, apply Step 1 all over your eyelids and blend upwards slightly above your crease with your fingers or a synthetic brush. Apply Step 2 in the crease of your eyes and blend with your fingers or a synthetic brush. 
Apply CoverGirl Queen Collection 1-Kit Eye Shadow in Down to Earth Q120 with a small brush along the outer 1/3 of your lower lash line.  Gently smudge with a brush, a cotton swab, or your fingers.
Use CoverGirl Intense ShadowBlast in 800 (shimmery snow white color) on the inner corners of your eyes (starlight) to brighten your eyes.

Using a liquid eyeliner in black, draw a thin winged line along your upper lash line. 
Generously coat your upper and lower lashes with CoverGirl Lash Blast 24 Hour Mascara in Very Black.
For your lips, mix CoverGirl Lipstick in 360 Euphoria and 255 Delish to make a neutral plum.
