Fall Leaves Inspired Eye Makeup Tutorial

This sultry and bold makeup look is inspired by all of the rich copper and beautiful red leaves currently falling off the trees in my yard.

  • Cool Gray Eyeshadow from Lorac Pro 2 Palette
  • Red Crease Eyeshadow from Wet n’ Wild Poster Child Palette
  • NYX Eyeshadow Base in White

Step 1:

Apply NYX eyeshadow base in white all over the eyelid to ensure vibrancy of the look.

Step 2:

Using a flat stiff brush, pat “Creme Brulee” eyeshadow on the center part of the eyelid, stopping right below the crease.

Step 3:

In a sweeping motion, apply “Cool Gray” with a defined crease brush all over the crease. Apply this shade heavily on the outermost area of the eye to intensify the look.

Step 4:

Using a small crease brush, apply the shade “Red” directly above the cool gray shade applied in step 3. Be careful not to take this shade up too high on the eyelid, otherwise it can end up looking too harsh.

Step 5:

Using liquid eyeliner, carefully apply a thin line of black liner to the top lid, ending at the corner of the eye. Using an angled liner brush apply the black shade from the Lorac Pro 2 Palette to the outer corner of the lower lash and gently work the product towards the center part of your eye.

Step 6:

Apply Black Mascara on both top and bottom lashes to complete the eye look.

Step 7:

To complete this fall inspired look, carefully apply Wet n’ Wild Ravin Raisin Lipstick to your lips. To prevent smearing, I also lined my lips using NYX Earth Tone lip liner.

 

This look truly highlights all of the beautiful, rich colors of fall and will definitely make your eyes pop. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
