GRWM: La Niña Fresa's early autumn face beat

Hi, My name is Sonali, a.k.a "La Niña Fresa," and I’m here to tell you why you’re gonna love me. Get into this cute end-of-summer trans-magical look.

1. Start off by priming your eyes.

 I like Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion ( $24 or $13 for the mini). Blend her out.

Also, if you don’t use eyeshadow primer, you’re lying to yourself — you don’t want to look pretty.

2. Pack on an orange shade in and around your crease area.

I’m using an orange from the Zulu Eyeshadow Palette by Juvia's Place ($20) .

Don't be afraid to get messy! You'll smooth it out later.

3. Go in, right at the crease with a darker warm color.

I'm using that lovely brown shade from the same palette.

Again, don’t be afraid to go in, bih!

4. Clean it up with your favorite concealer.

I’m using Smashbox Studio Skin Waterproof Concealer in the shade Light / Medium ($25). Take a synthetic flat brush to create a nice half circle.

5. Go bold or go TF home!

Use your fave gold shadow for a little extra glam. In this case, I’m using Wodaabe from The Saharan Palette by Juvia's Place ($20).

6. Blend with a shadow that is close to your complexion.

Even if it's not that pigmented, it'll work fine. TBH, I'm using a BHcosmetics palette with no name, but it was like 4 doll hairs.

Use that nude eyshadow to blend out the harsh orange line and it’s like magic!

7. Add a wing.

TBH, this is the hardest part. Except for me: I've started exclusively wearing eyeliner and I’m pretty pro. That’s why I can get away with using E.L.F.’s Expert Liquid Liner in Jet Black and I make it look expensive. (Two whole doll hairs! $2)

Also, you can always go in with a bit of brown and orange shadow to clean up and redefine that crease!

8. Prime your face and fill in those brows.

Now, I apply my favorite face primer, which is Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer ($36). She’s legit too fucking expensive and you can get away with using NYX’s Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer ($17).

I know, it looks like nothing happened. But trust me, it’s worth it!

Oh yea, by this point I did my brows using Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony ($18). I always cut it with a bit of coconut oil.

9. Inner corner highlight, duh!

The shadow Iman from The Saharan Palette is literally fire, but like, icy.

I like add this in after I do my liner. Oh and do your water line!

I used the same orange and brown shades from my Zulu palette to buff that out. I don’t remember where I got my brush in the picture, but I treasure that shit! It’s the perfect size for that inner corner highlight.

10. Finally, the finishing touches.

I used Ofra Cosmetics blush in Melon. It’s my favorite powder blush, but I don’t think they make it anymore. Some close blushes from Ofra are B-29 ($15) for a browner tint, Paradise Pink ($29) for a bright rosy color and Pink Lady ($15) for a dash of purple.

I also used my current fave Ciaté London Glow-To Highlighter in Moondust ($29). And of course, motherfucking Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow ($18).

I always set with NYX Matte Setting Spray ($8.50). I’m too lazy to do lashes, so I just used Benefit’s Roller Lash-Curling mascara ($25) and boom! Done.

I just slip on my outfit (bathing suit and jeans, LOL!), put on some hoops and I’m out the door. 🍒
