Hey everyone, happy October & happy Autumn/Fall! I am so ready for this season. October is one of my favourite months. Today I am going to share with you an ‘Autumn makeup look’ which I created recently. For the eyeshadow look I used only Makeup Revolution eyeshadows from the Extra Spice palette. I was so happy with how the look turned out so I decided to make a tutorial post for this one – It’s been quite a while since my last one.. It’s actually super easy, but the end result looks more complex than it really is. All’s you will need is patience to keep on blending! If you want to see all the products I used & how I created this look then keep on reading.
Rare for me, but I actually did my eye look before anything else for this look as I knew I would be going in with a lot of shadows. I filled in my brows using the Benefit Brow Zings palette (£27). This is still my favourite way to do my brows! I then used the Too Faced Born This Way concealer (£25) all over my eye lids. I set this concealer with the Too Faced Born This Way Translucent Powder (£22). Next I opened up the Makeup Revolution x Soph Extra Spice eye shadow palette (£10). On a Morphe s27 brush I applied the bright yellow shade ‘Vitamin C’ on the inner portion of my eye, including on my inner corners. Then on the same brush, I added the orange colour ‘Sweet N Sour’ right next to the yellow, further along the lid. I did the same next to that one using the Pink colour ‘Twenty One’, and then finally I added the Purple shade ‘Mulled Wine’ on the outer portion of my eye, blending right out. I intensified all these shades and blended them more seamlessly into one another, adding more pigment to whichever section needed it! I blended until everything was smooth, not patchy & seamless.
Once I was happy with the blend, I curled my lashes and added Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara (£8.99). I popped on some Eyeronic Cosmetics lashes in the style Anna (Discontinued).
On my lower lash line, I blended out the same shades that I applied on my eyelids, as if to make my lid mirror my lower lash line. I did the exact same process and blended blended blended!
I think the colours I chose are perfect for an Autumn makeup look.
To prime I used the Fenty Beauty Hydrating Primer (£24). As you may know if you read my recent September Favourites post, I have been loving this primer to give me a nice smooth hydrated base. I then applied the Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Foundation (£32). I love this foundation for a flawless full coverage look, and as this is a full glam look, it was perfect for this! I applied the foundation using a Real Techniques beauty sponge.
I used the Too Faced Born This Way concealer (£25) under my eyes, on my chin, down my nose & on my forehead. I blended this out with the same sponge. I set the concealed areas of my face with the Too Faced Born This Way Translucent Powder (£22) on a Real Techniques contour brush.
Next I dipped into the Zoeva Contour Spectrum palette (£17). I took my Morphe s13 brush and picked up the cool toned contour shade and applied this under my cheek bones to carve out the face. I also added a little of this shade onto the perimeter of my forehead. Then on the same brush I applied the darker bronzing powder onto the same areas I applied the contour colour, as well as down the sides of my nose & under my jaw. For blusher I used the Clinique Cheek Pop (£18) in the shade Ginger Pop; for this I used the Wet n Wild blush brush.
To highlight I used the Makeup Revolution x Soph highlight palette (£8). On a morphe s26 brush I picked up the peachy toned highlight and applied it to the tops of my cheek bones, down my nose, on my cupids bow & on my brow bone.
I set my whole face using the Morphe Continuous Setting Mist (£15).
To complete the look I applied Makeup Revolution x Soph lipstick in the shade Cake (£4)!
That’s everything! What do you think of my Autumn makeup look?! I’m obsessed with the outcome!
