It goes without saying that I love fall and winter. One reason I do is because of the deep vampy smoky eyes and lips that are so reminiscent of the season.
Sometimes a bold eye and lip can clash, so I try to keep them in the same color family. I’ve really been liking smoky eyes with burgundy in the crease.
This look was super easy. I used bronzer in my crease as my transition shade to begin. You can barely see it once the look is complete, but it adds a nice warmth. I used this one by ELF:
e.l.f.’s blush and bronzing powder in St. Lucia. 4.00 at Target and elsewhere.
I then used e.l.f.’s Artistry Palette, below, for the rest of the look. I used the shimmery burgundy shadow on my entire lid and the second shimmery champagne shade in the top row in the inner half of my eye.ebates.com.
This palette is not very well rated honestly, but I’ve gotten many looks out of it. I like the pigmentation and quality so I don’t really care about the ratings. The mirror is also huge, which is awesome. I used the medium brown tone in the palette in my crease, to intensify it.
I then cleaned up the edges and blended all the colors into each other/smoked out the look with a clean brush.
To tie the look together I used a wine lip liner underneath this lippie, Megalast Liquid Catsuit in Berry Recognize, above, by Wet n’ Wild.
I really like how the look turned out overall even though I experienced some fallout. For the price though, it’s not that hard to take a wet wipe and clean it up and do your eyes first.
Love & light to you all and have a beautiful three day weekend!
