Warm Up for Fall with Jessica Alba’s Autumnal Beauty Look



Who: Jessica Alba

Where: Variety's 5th Annual Power Of Women Event

Why we like it: Now that we're into October, it's the perfect time to bring out the warm brown and bronze shadows and berry toned lips. We love Jessica's look here because it's autumnal without feeling heavy. 

How to get it at home: As the weather gets cooler, the first instinct is to layer. Unfortunately, this sometimes goes too far and we enter into makeup mask territory. To combat this, no matter the look, it's helpful to start with a lighter base in the cooler months. We love Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' OCC Tint Tinted Moisturiser ($29.50) which is sheer and moisturizing (important for winter!) but offers buildable coverage. Add some color back into the cheeks with Benefit's Rockateur ($28) which is a warm rose gold tone that suits most skin tones.

The simplest way to get a multi-tonal eye such as this is with a palette. Then not only do you save money on buying multiple shadows, but you already know that all of the tones work together. For this look, we love the Beauty & The Box Amazonian Clay Eye Shadow Quad in In the Buff ($22). Top off your eyes with a dark, dramatic mascara, such as Bobbi Brown's Smokey Eye Mascara ($28) and finish your look with a lush berry lip gloss, such as Marc Jacobs Beauty's Lust for Lacquer in 206 Fame ($28).
