Let the eyes be the focal point. For this look that is neutral and the new effortless, and what Lilly Keys describes as "bold and dramatic", the celebrity makeup artist embraced a sense of mod and edginess, reflecting the fashion and cultural trends of the 1960's era.
Lilly says: "This red lip and shimmering eye combination is a modern take on the classic red lip choice for holiday makeup. The bold, cherry-red lip, created with a darker, ombré effect lip liner using Gucci lipstick in Crystal Black, exudes a sense of elegance with a slight vampy vibe. It instantly elevates the look. I used a tiny amount of it on the outer lip corners, using a precise lip brush."
Lilly Keys, on the key to natural makeup: "Keep it subtle, and enhance rather than conceal. Ensure that your skin is well moisturized and primed. Apply a light foundation or tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone, and then a touch of concealer to cover any blemishes or redness.I love YSL All Hours concealer. I love to add faux freckles across the bridge of the nose, and also dusted onto the cheeks, for a sun kissed look. This really plays up the youthfulness of the face and adds warmth. Once I’ve scattered a few freckles, I like to sweep a bronzing blush over the nose and cheeks where the freckles are, to both blend it better and for it to appear more natural."

Favorite fall memory
There have been a few Falls where I got to visit my grandparents. We sit around and play cards and do practically nothing, and that quality time with them means the world to me. My grandma always gets excited when the leaves change color, and so do I.
favorite fall Color
Burnt Orange is a pretty color to me. I feel most comfortable when I’m wearing dark colors but every once in a while, when I feel extra, I’ll wear orange.
favorite fall item of clothing
A few years ago I found a pair of vintage 90’s Fubu jeans at a thrift shop in Los Feliz. They’re so baggy and heavy. My mom gave me an old gold belt from when she was in high school. It’s falling apart and I love it, I wear it all the time with those jeans.
favorite fall drink
My friend Claudia taught me how to make my own ginger tea. It’s super easy and delicious. But if you let the ginger boil for too long, it’s really intense. I’ve definitely messed that up before which is an insane thing to do, considering how easy it is: Combine fresh ginger with water, let simmer for ten minutes. strain. add lemon and honey.
favorite fall accessory
I like a tiny gold chain that’s barely noticeable on the skin, and tiny hoops. Sometimes I’ll wear a statement piece, but not often.
FAVORITE Way to spend a Sunday in fall
Wake up late, eat a yummy breakfast, and read some of the book I keep forgetting about. If I can hang out with some friends, even better.
