I haven’t done a tutorial in a while, and I wanted to create a one that is really wearable for everyday wear rather than a more costume-based one. Autumn has well and truly hit the North East now, my garden is just covered in gold and orange at the minute. It’s so pretty!
So I have created this look today using quite a few old favourites. I hope you like the finished look.
Since my skin has been feeling quite dull lately, I massaged a bit of Laura Mercier’s Radiance Foundation Primer into my skin. Honestly, this gives such an intense glow to the skin; it looks amazing! Over this I blended Charlotte Tilbury’s Light Wonder Foundation into my face and neck. I currently use the shade 4, but I may need 3.5 soon as the shade is a tad bit dark for me at the minute.
Under my eyes I applied my usual concealer; bare Minerals Bareskin and blended this out with a damp sponge. I set it in place using the Dior Forever and Ever Powder. I then dusted this over my entire face to set the base into place.
To contour, I first applied the Chanel Soleil de Tan as a base then used my Makeup Obsession Contour pan as a bronzer over the top. Together these actually looked pretty amazing.
For blush, I used my old favourite, urban Decay’s Afterglow in Video. This does look pretty brown in the pan but on me it’s a gorgeous Mauve pink. It looks beautiful.
To highlight, I actually used an eyeshadow, and I loved how it looked on the tops of my cheek bones. I used Makeup Obsession’s Lucky Charm. It is absolutely gorgeous as a highlighter!
For my eyes, I wanted to create an illusion of autumn leaves. But before any eyeshadow went onto my eye, I applied Benefit’s Ka-Brow to my eyebrow hairs to define them a bit more.
On the lid, I then patted a bit of Nars’ Blush in Nico as a base. Then in the crease, I blended out a mixture of Makeup Obsession’s Chocolate Cream, MAC’s Haux and Nyx Butterscotch. I kept these quite light since I just wanted these as a subtle transition for the other eyeshadows.
To add some shimmer, I mixed MAC’s Amber Lights with Coppering. Together these gave quite a duochrome golden-copper finish which is the effect that I wanted. Over this I then applied a touch of Lithium and Element from the Urban Decay Moondust Palette to really add some sparkle.
Along the lower lash line I copied what I had done on the upper lash line, leaving the glitter step. In the inner corner, I used a tiny amount of Lucky Charm again to highlight it slightly.
To define my upper lash line a bit I used Makeup Obsession’s Midnight Black on a liner brush, pushing it straight into the lash line. And to finish the eyes I applied a few layers of Lancome’s Grandiose Mascara.
For the lips, I kept things quite natural. I first applied Bobbi Brown’s Lip Colour in Tulle to the entire lip. I then took Tom Ford’s Blushed Nude in the centre of the lip. Together these worked really well and I loved the effect.
And that is the finished look guys. What Autumnal trends have you been embracing lately?
Thanks for reading, and let me know if you do try out this look.
Bye for now!
