I think I did a similar themed look last year around October-time, but it’s a classic for Autumn so you can’t just leave it out. I also did this look a LOT in summer but it was based more around peachy pink tones, and less orange tones, but I love when you can just go properly all out and make it look like your eyes are on fire. That’s the kind of makeup that gets my heart going. All of my makeup looks are ridiculously quick and easy; the kind that you can do in about 10 minutes, but I still don’t manage to do them for work because who can be bothered putting that much effort in?
I am obsessed with this look, I love the way I did it and I love how it all comes together so nicely. I used The Ordinary serum foundation as a base and the Seventeen Stay Time concealer to cover any blemishes. For my eyes, I primarily used the ABH Modern Renaissance palette for this but I had to slip in the classic Autumnal Morphe 35O, because it just screams out to be used at this time of year. The oranges in there are to die for. I put Burnt Orange all over my lid, and then a wee bit of Love Letter into the crease to give it a bit of a pinky hue. Then I used the bottom corner orange out of the Morphe palette and kinda just put that all over the lid and then continued to darken the crease with the pink until I was happy with it.
Then I lined my eyes with the Soap & Glory Supercat liner and put some mascara on, and used the same orange from the Morphe palette to do a bit of colour under my eyes and put some of the brown end of the Sports FX eyeliner into my waterline and I also used that on my brows, which is something I’m starting to do a lot more. I’ve ditched the powder for pencil, which is something I never thought I’d do. I contoured using the Rimmel contour palette shown and used the highlighter out of there as well, which is my current everyday favourite highlighter, which I’ve probably said before.
The lip I chose today is one I don’t normally wear because I’m not a fan of the forumla, but it just fit so well with the whole look that I couldn’t resist. That and I couldn’t find any of my other nude lipsticks. I used the NYX Lip Lingerie in Push-Up, which is a really popular shade for good reason. It’s completely beautiful and I really just wish I loved the formula as much as I love the Soft Mattes, but I just find these way too drying!
This is what I usually go for in terms of an everyday Autumnal look, it’s probably the easiest to do and you don’t need any sort of technique to do it at all. Just slap some vaguely Autumnal colours on your lid and off you go.
