Autumn-Inspired Makeup Tutorial

18 Nov
Happy pre-Thanksgiving guys!
While the holiday season is about to start come later next week, I decided to create an autumn inspired makeup look tutorial for you guys. When I think of autumn, I think of warm rustic oranges, and golds, along with deep brown or gray smokey eyes. This tutorial has a bit of those qualities, while keeping it glammed up during a festive holiday night as well.
Best part about this tutorial? The items I’ve used are all affordable. I’ve got a few more tutorials coming up for you guys next month, so be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see when those go live!
Hope you all have an awesome Thanksgiving and rest of autumn season!

Get the Look: Burgundy Eyes

16 Oct

Hey guys!

It’s time for an awesome “Get the Look” post, and it’s about celebrating fall! My next few posts in this series will be seasonal based. Be sure to subscribe and see what’s coming up next! I’ve got everything listed below in order for you to recreate this burgundy eye look, along with lip shade suggestions.

I wanted to do a warm eye look with a cool toned lippie. If you can’t find any cool toned lip color you like, just go with your favorite plum or nude lip. I did use some Kara lashes, but those are always optional. Here are the steps I took:

Step1

Grab your transition color first. This would be a matte beige or a light skin type of color. You won’t see this color, but it will help all of the colors come together in the end.

Then you’ll start to shape your crease by working up a burgundy color to almost the brow bone.

Step2

To add some definition, you’ll want to work a darker red color into the crease only. Do not work up into any other area, keep it strictly in the crease.

Step3

Go back into the burgundy and pack on above the crease you just created, to intensify the pigment if needed.

Take a wet (if desired) flatbrush, to dip into a champagne, metallic lavender color, or whatever bright color you prefer to work with that’s going to give your lid a “pop”.

step4

Go back to the burgundy color and work under crease a bit to blend out the lid color. Smoke out your liner with a kohl pencil for a smokey look.

Step5

Make sure to add your brow highlighter and tear duct color to clean everything up. Then you’ll want to add some of the dark red to the under eye lid for a more dramatic effect.

 If you haven’t already, line your inner water line with a white pencil liner.

Step6

If you’re going to add lashes to the look, I suggest a tiny bit of black liquid liner to hide where exactly you’ve placed your lashes.

Finished the look off after you’ve applied your mascara, with a nude lip liner and a cool toned nude lip color like this one I’m in love with, the MeNow Long Lasting Lip gloss.

Step7

It’s that simple, and I hope these steps have helped you in your attempt to achieve this look. The products I used are all affordable, and easy to work with.
