Fall Make Up Tutorial

In honor of Fall, pumpkin-spiced lattes, sweaters, and vanilla-scented lotion, here's a rusty red eye look for you all:

 Let's begin!

First, fill in your eyebrows to look natural! Mine are pretty full but I fill them in a little to make them polished. Eyebrows are one of the most important aspects to a make up look! I promise (compare my the eyebrow I did on the left to the eyebrow on the right ... SO MUCH BETTER!)

Next add a base so your eyeshadow stays on all day. I'm using Urban Decay Primer Potion

Goofing off

Next, mix a rusty orange and lighter orange together. You may be saying ... orange??! I promise this ties the look together!

Apply to this your crease area, avoiding the brown bone and eyelid. This will help our lid color transition better.

EEEK I love this eyeshadow! (MAC Glamour Check! .. so good for any eye color) Apply any rusty red eyeshadow to your eyelid.

With a tapered blending brush (or ANY clean brush) BLEND BLEND BLEND the rusty red into the orange! We don't want any harsh lines


AHHHH! Perfect

Now take a little itty-bitty brush like this....

 ...and apply the rusty red to your lower lash line!
Take a warm colored highlight color!
Apply the highlight to your brow bone, tear duct, and a little inwards on your lower lash line. This will help brighten up the whole look!
Now add black eyeliner to the top lash line and wing it out (shown on my right eye). I used a liquid liner, but you can use gel or pencil liner

Apply a black liner to your upper waterline. This is called tightlining


Look how much of a difference curling/not curling your lashes does

Apply mascara!! Top and bottom. My favorite is Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash

And you're finished!!! Apply bronzer to your cheeks, temples, and a little on your nose to warm up the rest of your face.

Love this look

Perfect for falltime!
