HI!! How are you all? I have wanted to do this post since the start of October but only just got round to it! This is my ‘Soft Autumn Makeup look’, I wanted to use soft and dark colors to create that Autumn look, but I blended them so that the look wasn’t too harsh. Also half way through I decided I wanted to do a wing liner!!! This is going to be like a mini tutorial for this look, so I hope you enjoy:-)
I started off with moisturiser, I am using a new moisturiser called Yes To Grapefruit Daily Moisturiser, after this I used the Weleda Skin Food on dry patches on my skin, this helps my primer go on smoother. I usually wait for around 10 minutes to put my primer on top of my moisturiser so that it has enough time to soak in properly. I did also use the Carmex lip balm here, but I didn’t take a picture of it:( For primer I used the MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Base Hydrating Primer, whenever I do an eye look I always do my eyes before my base because otherwise if you have fallout then you can just rub it off, without taking off half your base makeup. To start, I used the Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer in the shade Minor Sin, which is a shimmery light pink color that blends beautifully!
I used the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette, I started off with the shade ‘Sand’, which is a light shimmer that be used to set the primer and make sure that there is no uneven skin tone showing, it also gives a little highlight to your eyes (woo!). I did a review on this palette in a previous post, you can check that out here !
Next, I lightly blended the Makeup Geek shade ‘Creme Brulee’ (picture on the left) into the crease and beginning to blend it onto the lid of my eye. I used the other shade ‘Latte’ in bottom of my crease in order to create a darker tone, going back to ‘Creme Brulee’ and using that under my lower lash line.
Once both of them shades are lightly blended in the crease and over the lid, I used the Morphe Soul of Summer Palette 12S, with the shade in the bottom right corner which is like a dark purple/red shimmer color, which is very pigmented. I didn’t want to use this to make the eyes look dark, so I only used a small amount in the center of my lid and then blended it out, to create a soft look, for brushes I just use the Zoeva Eye Brush Set!
Next up, I did a little wing liner, I used the Morphe Gel Liner in the shade ‘Black Slate’, I used a mixture between the Zoeva Fine Liner Brush and the Wing Liner Brush to apply my wing liner. I used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to clean up the edges of my wing liner and make it look more sharp, and there is the finished eye look!
For my base, I started off using the L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Green Concealer over any blemishes or red areas, over the top of that I use Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in the shade ‘Mont Blanc’, applied with my Zoeva Buffer Brush. For concealer I used the L’oreal Perfect Match Concealer in the shade 2, under the eyes, forehead, chin, cupids bow and under the check bones. For setting powder, I used the NYX Studio HD Finishing Powder which I applied with a little sponge, in order to bake my concealer. I baked for around 2 mins, then brushing off with a small brush.
Next is Bronzer and Brows! For bronzer I used the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer which is matte, I love using matte bronzers this time of year. For brows I used a mixture of the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil to fill in the sparse areas, then I use Mac Charcoal Brown Eye Shadow with Mac 266 Brush to get a precise and clean finish. Lastly, I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel to set my brows into place for the whole day.
The last final pieces to this look starts off with using the Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette on my check bones, cupids bow and above the brow bone, I use the Zoeva Fan Brush to apply this. For mascara I used the YSL Baby Doll Mascara in black, I absolutely love this mascara because it gives my eye lashes length and pigmented color. I wanted a light nude color for the lips, since my eye look was a little dark I didn’t want to go over board, so I used the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade ‘Seduction’. Finally, I used a spritz of Mac Fix + to give my face some hydration and added glow!
Here is the finished Soft Autumn Makeup Look:
