HAPPY 1ST OF OCTOBER! it’s basically nearly Christmas now.
I thought id do an autumn inspired makeup look as we are fully into autumn! For this look i used burnt orange colours, and a dark red/berry lip.
Step 1- For my base colour i used Laura Mercier baked eye colour in ‘Terracotta’ you can wet this to intensify the pigment which i did for this look. I swept this all over my eye lid. Its a lovely burnt orange colour which has a lovely iridescent sheen once applied.
Step 2- I then used a fluffy clean blending brush to blend that out.
Step 3- With a clean eyeshadow brush i then used BarryM dazzle dust (doesn’t seem to have a name but has number 5 on the bottom!) the way id describe this is a loose shimmer pigment, it’s a beautiful copper colour with an orange tone. I used this colour in the centre of my eyelid to make my eyes pop. I then used a slightly smaller brush to take the pigment under my bottom lash line (this also brings out your eyes)
Step 4- To define the eyes a bit more i used Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow stick in ‘Amber haze’ i used this in the outer corners of my bottom lash line and the outer corners of my crease.
Step 5- With the fluffy blending brush- blend blend blend!
Step 6- Finished the look of with my favourite mascara, Maybelline lash sensational.
This literally took 10 minutes the copper and burnt orange colours compliment each other so well and really make your eye colour pop! It was a more simple eye look because i went for a bold lip so didn’t want anything to crazy. These colours i find suit EVERYONE!
I never knew how bad i was at putting bright lipsticks on myself until now!! The way i find bright lipstick works for me is literally patting it on and then smudging it in, i don’t layer it on to get the full pigment of it. I smudge it in for a more softer effect. The colour i used was ‘Audrey’ by Nars it’s a lovely plum colour with a satin finish. If you wanted a stronger look id suggest using a plum lip liner and layering the colour on with a brush!
Here are all the products i used to create my eyes and lips..
And here is the finished look! hope you all like it, happy autumn!!!
