Beauties on Fire Fall Themed Makeup
It's time for a Beauties on Fire Collaboration! This week's theme is Fall!
I love Fall. Though I live in Florida and we don't get much of one, once it starts to cool down in the evenings it's awesome! We still have warm days and cool(ish) nights!
I'm going to be using the Makeup Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer.
One of my favorite foundations for colder months is the Loreal Infallible Pro Glow. Really great for when you have dry skin.
I'm just going to add a few drops to a flat stippling brush. First, I randomly dot it on my face then go in and blend it. I love this brush for foundation, it makes sure to get it in the skin for a flawless look.
Next, I take my Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer and apply it to my eyelids as a primer and to any other places that need a little more coverage.
Then, I set it all with my e.l.f High Definition Powder. Don't forget to really get the eyelids, this helps to make sure your eye shadow applies evenly and makes it easier to blend.
Now, on to the eyes!
The thing I get asked most is " how do you get such a crisp line when you do winged out shadow!?" The answer to that lovelies is TAPE! That's right, regular old scotch tape!
Looks a little funny, feels a bit weird but, it does the job and very well!
For this makeup look, I am going to be using the Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Palette. The first color will be Leather.
I am using an angled liner brush since I want more of a cut crease look. Apply right above the crease and angle out using the tape as a barrier.
Once the base is down, I am going to use a small blending brush with nothing on it and blend up and out.
Next, I am going to use Mandala to add a little more orange to the brown focusing on the outer edge.
Then, I am going to use Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Pure Gold for all over the lid.
To help blend that in, I'm going to take Platonic (L) and Brass Dutchess(R). Going to use Brass Dutchess on the inner corner to about 1/3 of the way to the center of my lid. Then the rest will be Platonic.
For liner, I am using the Maybelline Gel Liner and a bent liner brush. Again using the tape as a barrier make your wing liner.
After lining the bottom, I am going to go in with an angled brush and M.A.C eyeshadow in Mystery. This is one of my favorite taupe-browns.
Now the tape comes off. You can see there was some fall out from the shadows that I used, however, with the tape we do not have to go back in with a q tip and makeup remover.
Moving on to brows. I am going to be using Benefit Cosmetics Ka- Brow in #5
Once I have a nice base down, I go back in with a spool and blend into the brow and make sure they are laying correctly.
For my contour I am using Benefit Cosmetics Matte Bronzer in Hoola and an angled contour brush.
I am going to take this from the top of my ear to about the middle of my cheek(using my pupil as a stopping guide). I am also going to contour my nose to slim it a little.
For blush, I am using a mix of 2 colors Ulta's Flush (top Right) and Adore (top left) Starting on the apples of my cheeks and blending to my ear.
To get the lips the color I want, I will be using 3 products. Nyx Suede Matte lip liner in Los Angeles, Nyx Liquid Suede in Brooklyn Thorn and Revolution Salvation Liquid Laquer in Vamp
After that, we take our lighter color (Brooklyn Thorn) and fill in the middle blending into the darker color
