Okay y’all, I am finally going to be sharing a makeup look on here. I have been wanting to do this for quite sometime but have never really had the look to share, so to speak. I love doing fall makeup. Playing with golds, reds, and coppers are honestly some of my favorite things to do and I guess you could say my safe zone. To be completely honest with you, as I was doing this look I didn’t really think about wanting to post it until it was finished so sorry about not having many during the process pictures. So Enjoy!!!!
That all being said this look will have all of those tones plus a fierce-ish liner and some falsies that slay, as well as a classic lippie that you can rock year round. This look features items from Tarte Cosmetics, Tash Cosmetics, Prestige Cosmetics, Ardell Lashes, and Kat Von D. Since this is my first beauty blog post that goes into detail on the look of it all I will do my best to explain what I did. Meaning I won’t really be able to tell you what brush I used cause I don’t own all these fancy Mac or Morphe brushes with names… I own amazon brushes that are cute, but I will do my best. If anything I will include the brush that I use in the image I share. So I’m that weirdo who does her foundation and brows before doing her shadow look and once that is done I finish the rest of my face… I don’t know why, it is just how I have always done it.
Ok so on with how I created this look! First thing I did was conceal and prime my eyes with Urban Decay’s Primer Potion in the shade Minor Sin. I love this shade because it add a little bit of glam to the base of your look!
After I apply Minor Sin to my lids I let it set a few moments then apply a base shadow. For most of my looks… if not all… I use the shade Flower Child from the Tartelette In Bloom palette. The reason I use this shade for my base is because it is PERFECT nude tone to give my eyes a clean canvas that doesn’t show my dark raccoon like circles. I apply this shadow all over the lid and in the crease so I can build later.
Once I have prepared my canvas… er.. well, eyelid for this look. I take my newest shadow and honestly the reason for this entire look, Tash Cosmetics loose pigment in the shade The Devil Wears Prada, and apply it to my crease as well as the inner corner of my eye. Keep in mind that this is a VERY pigmented red so I highly recommend applying a little at a time and building it up so that it is that perfect shade of red and not too overpowering for this fall look. Don’t worry, we will have an overpowering red look as winter approaches CAUSE CHRISTMAS!! I used a fluffy brush to apply this color and found that it applied it evenly and was very easy to blend.
Next, using a slightly smaller brush I applied the shade Warmth from the Tartelette Toasted palette lower in my crease so that I could begin to create beautiful fall tones while keeping the red vibrant and visible higher on my eye.
Once my crease looked like the perfect transition of red to burnt orange/copper using a small brush… idk the name of it… I applied the shade Cozy from the Tartelette Toasted palette to the outer corner of my eye to add a little bit of a smoky look to the outside.
Now onto my lid! One thing you will learn about me is I am all about using sparkly shade to glam up my matte looks. Using a flat brush to push the shade onto my lid instead of brush it on I applied the shade Flame from the Tartlette Toasted palette until my lid was coppery and shiny.
Please keep in mind to blend so you don’t have any harsh lines because trust me… ya girl didn’t blend for the longest time and it. was. a. nightmare. I hate looking back on picture because of that. So please for the love of all things beauty with this look… BLEND.
The last thing I did shadow-wise for now was, I applied the shade Sunset from the Tartelette Toasted palette to the inner corner of my eye to give the look a little bit of gold and light! I also applied this shade to my brow bone as well
Next I added Prestige Cosmetics Vinyl Liquid Liner in Black on my upper lash line to create a simple wing. Honestly you go as dramatic or minimal with the wing as you want. I swear some days my wings will be larger that the angels in heaven, some days they will dainty or non existent, and rarely are they the perfect balance.
Now, my lower lash line is a combination of The Devil Wears Prada and Flame. Using a liner brush I applied The Devil Wears Prada half way across my lower lash line and then applied Flame on the other half. I did blend so that it wasn’t a harsh transition but you can go as harsh and as smoky as you want with this.
The last thing I did for this look was curl my lashes, apply a little bit of Two Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara, and then apply some dramatic false lashes to complete the look.
I absolutely love makeup but have neglected it because of my health. I can’t wait to share more looks with y’all though! What is your favorite thing about makeup? Do you prefer a glam look or a more subtle and natural one? Let me know below!!!
