Tutorial: Autumn Desires

Hii :D

I showed a picture of this makeup a while ago on my FB page, and I am finally getting around to posting it. I wore this to my friend's engagement party (which was so much fun!). If you can't tell, I cannot wait until autumn! It is my favorite season, so I decided to do a more autumn-y look. This is a burgundy eye with a very awesome lip color, NARS 'Autumn Leaves' Lipstick!

Products Used

-ELF Eyelid Primer
-Maybelline Color Tattoo 'Pomegranate Punk'
-NYC IndividualEyes Custom Compact 'Berry Bloom'
-Urban Decay 24/7 pencil liner 'Perversion'
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara

-YSL Teint Resist Foundation in #3
-MAC 'Eversun' Blush
-NARS Sheer Lipstick 'Autumn Leaves'

Autumn Desires Tutorial 

1.Apply a burgundy color base.
I used a very small amount of the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pomegranate Punk and applied it with a small brush in the desired shape. Also apply some on the lower lash line.

2. Apply a dark burgundy or brown on the outer V and blend it inwards. 
Using a precision brush, I used the darkest color from the NYC palette and applied it on the outer V and lower lash line right over the color base. Then with a fluffy brush, I slightly blended it inwards.
3. Apply a lighter purple on the center of the lid.
I used the shimmery medium-toned purple from the NYC palette and applied it on the center of the lid and of the lower lash line. This will create a gradient effect from darkest to lightest, making the eye look bigger.
4. Highlight the inner corner.
I used the highlighter from the NYC palette and applied it right on the tear duct area.And make sure everything is nicely blended out.
5. Apply some black eye liner.
I applied my favorite black eyeliner, Perversion from Urban Decay, and smudged it along the upper and lower lash lines. All you need it to apply mascara and you are done!

Finished Look

Please! Summer be over already! I can't wait to wear dark lip color and warm sweaters!
