For today’s look I’ve dipped into something seasonal. Right now it’s the time for warm browns, rusts and gold. It’s coming into autumn! But of course I couldn’t resist adding a bit of glitter and sparkle. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t!
It’s a long list of products today, but here you go :
Yesterday I gave you the run down on how I do my base, so I’m going to jump right into my eye makeup. Today I went for another cut crease, so with a light brown colour (shade 6), I shaped out the crease with an angled brush. Then I took a fluffy brush and blended it out a little. Then I took a bronze colour (shade 12) and blended upwards towards my brow from the inner corner of the crease to the centre of the crease with a small fluffy brush. With the same brush I dipped into a darker brown that still had some shimmer to it (shade 27) and blended from the centre of the crease to the outer corner. To define the cut a little more, I took a tiny packing brush and dipped into some black (shade 26). I blended that out with the fluffy brush that still had the dark brown shade on it.
I then took some concealer and carved out and cleaned up the cut crease. With the first brown shade I used, I laid down a base on the lid, leaving a few millimetres gap between the cut and the shadow on the lid. I then covered this with some glitter primer and patted on some brown glitter from the inner corner to the centre, and from the centre outwards I patted on gold glitter.
Next I took my felt tip eyeliner and drew on a small wing, also adding a tiny one in the inner corner of my eye. With a white eyeshadow (shade 1) I added an inner corner highlight. With the tiny packing brush that had the black on, I ran that underneath my lower lash line, before taking the fluffy brush that had the brown on to blend and smoke it out a bit. Some mascara and false lashes and I was done!
For the lips I first lined my lips with a dark brown liquid lipstick. I also over-line my lips because I have a small top lip so I like to try and make it look fuller. Then I filled in the middle of my lips with gold lipstick, smacked my lips together for a good blend and the look was complete.
What do you think? What are you thinking for your fall looks?
