’90s Glam | Fall Makeup Look

With a defined nude lip, matte eyeshadow, and rosy cheeks, this sophisticated and stunning look is perfect for fall. Inspired by one of Jessie James Decker’s YouTube tutorials, it is ultimately a more glamorous version of my everyday makeup routine for work.


For this look, I opted for a more matte, full coverage base, but it’s far from dull or cakey.

I wanted soft yet accentuated cheekbones, so I took my time layering products. I added an all over warmth with cream bronzer, used a dark concealer shade as cream contour, and then piled on one of my favorite rosy cream blushes. I finished the cheeks with a matte powder bronzer as well as a matte powder blush.

This eye look is simple and timeless, composed of all matte shades. I warmed up the crease, defined the outer corner with a more cool-toned brown and used the matte cream shades on the lid. I used the dark brown and black shades for an easy, more soft winged liner. I layered on lots of mascara but kept the brows more natural.

A darker, more defined nude lip is key to bringing this whole look together. ‘Nude 2’ and ‘Velvet Teddy’ are perfect ’90s brown shades, while ‘Myth’ is great for dabbing in the center of the lips.
