Playing around with fall makeup colors, and switching up a few things in my makeup routine for a seasonal change is just so fun. It doesn't have to be because I have some where fancy to go, I just like to create new looks with the overabundance of eye shadows that I have collected over the years. So I wanted to create a pretty smokey eye with some seasonal colors. Copper, golds, even cranberry.
I went with my normal foundation routine, and I will link all the products I used below. I actually mixed two of my favorite foundations to get the color right, because my pale skin got a little bit of color over the summer coming from Alaska. But I haven't spent too much time outside recently, and my foundation routine needed a switch-a-roo.
For my eyes I started with a gold base, and then went in with one of my favorite eye shadows from MAC, called Coppering. I have been using this color since high school. It is one of those colors that looks amazing on blue eyes, and helps to really make them pop. It can be a subtle color, or you can layer it and the reds in the shadow get more intense.
I wanted to add some brown in there as well, just to give it some depth. If you do not have the Prism eye shadow palette, I highly recommend getting one. It has every color under the sun, it is incredibly affordable, and really allows you to play with color. I used the gold and brown from this palette.
For the lips, I thought about going with a deep cranberry lipstick, but decided on a darker nude just to keep the look a little more toned down. Plus, I am a creature of habit and a nude lip is always my automatic response. So I layered one of my favorite Colourpop liquid lipsticks, with my lover of all lip glosses, Buxom in White Russian. Then I set the whole thing with my humidity fighting setting spray!
Done like a fall dinner my friends.
