There’s something about warm smoky fall looks that make me feel happy. It’s like a pumpkin spice latte for the soul.
This warm toned smoky eye look, evocative of fall, literally took five minutes and it’s probably my favorite lately. I used two very affordable palettes you can find at any drugstore, Target, etc. and all affordable products for the rest of my face.
Most of the shadows I used are from the palette above. I primed my lids with Physician’s Formula Touch of Blur concealer, though it wasn’t as full coverage as I would’ve liked. In general, I like how creamy and blendable it is though. You can use any full coverage concealer or primer.
I used the base color from the Elf palette all over the lid as indeed a base. I then used the pretty golden yellow and rusty orange lid and crease color on the lid and crease. I placed the rose gold color labeled eyelid on the center of the lids from the Wet n Wild palette and the shimmery champagne/ivory color on the inner corner and inner part of the eyelid.
I then used the medium bark colored brown color labeled crease in the Wet n Wild palette on the outer corner and crease to further define the smokiness and the bottom chocolatey color on the very outer corner, lash line, and bottom lash line. I created the blown out gradient by blending continually. Nonetheless, the look was simple to complete and both novices, experts, and anyone in between can create it.
I tried the look a few days earlier before creating it again for this post for work and paired it with NYX’s matte liquid Lip Lingerie in Teddy.
I honestly don’t know which lip I like better with the eye look. The first one with the metallic Glazed Lip Paint by LA Girl in Gleam is more pumpkin-y whereas the bottom one is vampier. I guess it depends on your mood.
I hope your fall is filled with many beautiful smoky eye looks, soul-warming goodness, and many pumpkin spiced memories. 🍂🍁🌰
