I love fall, I love makeup…. I love fall makeup! And I really love the makeup looks that can be created with fall colors.
In one of my recent post on fall lipsticks, I featured Milani cosmetics Blackcherry lipstick as one of my top picks for fall lip colors. l LOVE this lipstick so much I decided to do a look centered around it. This will be helpful for any of you that have a hard time finding an eye look to go with your deep red lipstick or if you’re just interested in trying out a fall makeup look. So get your brushes ready, Divas!
Start out by priming your eyes with an eyeshadow primer to ensure that your eyeshadows last all day. I’m using Urban Decay Original Primer Potion.
With a blending brush apply a brown shadow into your crease. This will help the transition of your shadows to be seamless. Try to use a brown shadow that is not too dark or too light. It should work well with your skin tone. I’m using e.l.f’s blending brush to apply M.A.C’s Brown Down in my crease area.
bareMineral’s Happy Place quad has amazing colors that work well for fall. I will be using Imagine and Euphoria to create this look.
Using your favorite eyeshadow brush, place Imagine all over your lid from lashline to crease. NOTE: When applying shadows on my lid I like to pat instead of swipe. Patting gives your eyeshadow a more pigmented look while swiping can give you a light wash of color.
From here you can choose to either wear the look with just those two shadows (as seen on my right eye) or kick the look up a notch and apply a little bit of black eyeshadow in your crease (as I did with the left eye). As you can see the left eye is little more smoky than the right. I chose to go with the more smoky look on the left.
Here’s our completed eyes:
I’m so glad I went with the smokier look! It definitely complements those two shades. This will also go great with our lip color, which is a dark berry-red shade.Go ahead and apply Blackcherry. I applied two coats straight from the tube. For added sexiness, because we can never have to much of that on red lip days , apply bareMinerals Daredevil lipgloss. This gloss and lipstick are a perfect fall lip combo!
Our complete look is the bomb.com! I just love how everything complements each other. I can not wait to wear this out. I think it’s a great look for both night and day. Blackcherry lipstick + Happy Place palette = fall makeup heaven!
See you soon divas!
