Autumn Eyes #2

Today's post is another 'Autumn Eyes' for you all. This one was kind of an accident as I didn't plan on doing this type of post today, but I really liked how my eye make-up turned out so I thought why not! I used a lot of golds and bronze colours to create this look so it will suit a lot of people and should be quite simple to re-create.

I really wanted to get a really opaque gold base so with a flat eyeshadow brush I pressed Half Baked from my Urban Decay Naked palette all over my lid. After I had done that, I felt the gold was a little bit too yellow based for me so I took Smog which is from the same palette and applied that straight over the top of half baked. Smog is a more bronze colour with a little bit of a gold under tone so this just took the yellowness away from my eyes. I then took a fluffy blending brush and made sure there were no harsh lines. Since both of them colours were very shimmery, I decided I want to use a matte darkish brown through my crease to give my eye a bit of definition. For this I used Espresso from my MAC palette.

To highlight my inner tear duct I used Shroom also from my MAC palette and then I used MAC's Mineralised Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle as a brow bone highlight. The last thing I done to finish off my eyeshadow was I took a little bit of half baked and smog mixed together on a pencil brush and ran it along my lower lash line. I also smudged a little bit of a matte black eyeshadow into my outer corner to balance my eye.

I then used my Essence Liquid Ink black eyeliner and made a small line along my top lash line. Finally, I applied two coats of The Rocket mascara by Maybelline.
I hope you liked this look, I think it's perfect for Autumn so definitely give it a go if you get a minute!
