We’re still stuck in winter here in the Southern Hemisphere and fall is fast approaching the North, so I thought why not do a fall/winter look today. I chose very earthy yet bright tones because the most intriguing part of fall for me are the rich hues of fallen leaves: fading olive greens, burgundies, vibrant yellows and oranges!
In the photo above, I’ve just pointed out the eyeshadows I used on each area just to make it easier to understand.
Lid: Mac Sumptuous Olive described as a shimmery golden khaki color. Any shimmery olive color would do.
Transition: Mac Soft Brown: a matte, warm, light to mid tone brown which is my go to transition color! Just can’t live without it!
Outer Crease: matte Ox-blood burgundy shade from the BH Cosmetics 26 Neutral Eyeshadow and Cheek Palette….pheww that’s a long name! Have been obsessed with this shade and been using it a lot this fall/winter!
Crease: the matte black and dark brown from the Sleek Storm Palette. I gotta say guys, this black is one of the most intense black I’ve come across. Beats Mac Carbon anyday. It is extremely pigmented and sooo black!
Browbone: Mac Brule which is just a matte off-white creamy color…this is also my go to matte browbone highlight.
Tear Duct: Mac Amber Lights….a shimmery peachy bronze….so beautiful!
Underneath I’ve used the burgundy color in the outer 2/3 and the inner third I used Sumptuous Olive and a little bit of Amber Lights coming down from the tear duct.
Eyeliner: Maybelline Eye Studio gel liner in blackest black – really good drugstore gel liner
Waterline: Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 001 Black – my new favourite !
Mascara: Maybelline the Falsies – cult favorite !
Falsies: Red Cherry false lashes….i’m really sorry I don’t have the number 😦 lost the actual packaging it came in.
REMEMBER blending is key !!! You can always use a soft transition color to tone down the burgundy or any bold crease color.
Foundation: L’oreal Lumi Magique in W5 – just got this foundation recently and have been loving it so far!!
Powder: Chanel White Essentiel in 50 Beige Dore – rediscovered this powder and don’t know why it was stashed in my drawers….i love it!
Cheeks: Mac Ripe for Love blush LE from Temperature Rising collection
Bronzer: Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze
Highlight: Dior Amber Diamonds…..to die for!!!
Lips: Mac Ruby Woo – a cult favorite again!!
Till next time lovelies XO !
