Autumn Leaves Makeup Look

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all having a good day. Today i have for you a little look for the Autumn time and it reminds me of the colour of the leaves that fall to the ground at one point or another. 

Here is the picture of the finished look and then i will tell you how i did it. make sure to stay tuned.

Things I Used...

Colour 1 :Matte Brown from Technic Palette.
Colour 2 :Gun Metal from Urban Decay Naked Palette.
Colour 3 :Half Backed from Naked Palette.
Colour 4 :Buck from Naked Palette.
Colour 5 :Virgin from Naked palette.
Eye Liner :Felt Tip Pen from Collection, Thick Eye Crayon from Barry M, Water Proof Gel Liner from Rimmel London in colour Black 001.
Mascara in the colour Black Brown from Natural collection 
True Match Foundation by Loreal Paris in the colour Rosy Ivory.
Pressed Powder From Natural Collection in the colour Neutral.
Rimmel London Sun Shimmer Maxi Bronzing Powder for Contour.

Step One. I start with my eyes because i always end up getting some fallout. So i take my first colour and put it in my crease but not all the way into the inner eye just into the center.  
As i do for every shadow i pack on the colour with a dense brush then i blend it out with a blender brush.

Step Two. I take the second colour and put it on top of the crease colour but keep the shade on the outer side of my eye just to make the corner look even more darker. 

Step Three. I take colour number 3 and put it on most of my lids but still keeping the focus point on the center of my eye. 

Step Four. I put the same colour on the center of my eye lid to make the colour stand out more.

Step Five. I take colour number 4 and put it in the inner hollow part of eye to give that bit more demention using a blender brush.

Step Six. Then i take a colour number 5 which is the lightest shade i could find and i went ahead and put that just on my brow bone to give my eyes a lift and to make them look more awake.

Step Seven. Now that my eye shadow is done, i can go ahead and apply my eye liner. This is where i use a mix of Gel and Pen liner because as most girls, i have trouble getting my wings perfect so i use the Pen to line the eye. This time i went right into the corner of my eye. Then i use the Gel to create the wing as i feel for me it makes it more precise. Then when i am done i go over with the Pen to make the wing stand out a bit more. And luckily enough, that was the first time i got both wings right first time! Hehe.

Step Eight. I use a Pencil liner to do my water line and my tight line.(I dont know about you but when i do my tight line it really hurts and makes me cry. Not sure if i am doing it right but it looks good right?)

Step Nine. Next is the foundation, there are always debate going on, whether you should put it on before or after. I normally do this first but today i wanted a change so i put it on after the shadow. I put a bit on the back of my hand then i dot it all over my face so it is even. Then i use a buffing brush to blend it all in. Dont forget the neck and your ears if you re gonna have your hair up. 

Step Ten. I set my foundation with a powder using a multi task brush. 

Step Eleven. I now contour my face using a bronzer, and the one i am using has lasted for ever and i haven't hit pan yet! I apply that on my face using a kobookki brush and i put it just below my cheek bones and on the two highest points of my forehead and all around my neck because if you put it on your neck it gives the appearance of a thinner neck. 

Step Twelve. I put a dark red lip on as it is Autumn.
Step Thirteen. I take my hair down and it is naturally wavy. 

And that is how i did that. If you want to see any particular look then let me know in the comments so i can do it for you. hope you enjoyed this blog and i will see you tomoz with another one!
