Autumn Eyes!

Hello everyone!

I love all the different colours related to autumn but I sometimes find them quite hard to wear especially on my eyes. I find reds and oranges the worst since these colours can make your eyes look tired and puffy if they aren't worn in the right way. To create this look I used an orangey colour so I thought I would show you how I wore it.

The first product I used was MAC paintpot in Groundwork. I just used this as an eyeshadow primer and to give my eye lids a little bit of colour before adding the other colours on top.

I then took the colour Socialite from my Too Faced eyeshadow insurance policy palette and pressed this on to my eyes with a flat eyeshadow brush. After I had applied it all over my lid, I didn't feel the colour was pigmented enough so I then sprayed my brush with some MAC fix + and re-applied Socialite. This made the eyeshadow a lot more vibrant.

After that I took a fluffy blending brush and picked up the colour Buck from my Urban Decay Naked palette. I used Buck through my crease to give it some definition and to make the look slightly darker. On the same brush I then took a little bit of Naked and used this as a transition colour. This made Socialite and buck blend together perfectly. Finally from my Naked palette, I used Virgin in my inner corner and brow bone as a highlight.

The next thing I done was line my upper lash line with Essence liquid ink eyeliner which I winged out slightly. I then applied a few coats of my favourite mascara, Maxfactor Masterpiece Max. Last but not least I lined my lower lash line with Maybelline Master Drama Khol eyeliner and smudged it into my lower lashes.

That was the eyes done! Very quick and a simple way to incorporate Autumn colours into your make-up routine. I hope you enjoyed this post and maybe give this look a go.
