Autumn Inspired Look

Autumn is one of my favorite times of year. I love all of the fun activities and the colors. This look was inspired from a trip to the pumpkin patch. You've got corn, pumpkins, gourds, leaves changing colors, the dirt... it's all so beautiful!

I wanted to create a look using these colors, that was simple and you could wear to the pumpkin patch or whatever Autumn activity you're doing. It only takes a few minutes to do this look. Plus if you have blue eyes, it will make them pop!

I will walk you through the steps, or you can watch the video here

Start with primer if you chose.

Then take your NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk and put it all over your lid. Do put it on the inner corner of your lower lash line. This will be the base for the colors, mostly yellow. It's important that they stand out as colors and don't make you look sickly. When done incorrectly, yellow and orange can make you look sick.

Start by defining your crease. It's best to do this first when working with such light colors. This requires a dark brown shade.  I used the Bare Escentuals Light Stroke brush. It's much like their Max Coverage Brush.

Next, apply your yellow shadow to your inner third and onto the lower lash. Use any eyeshadow brush to pat it onto the eye.

Now, Apply the lighter brown shade to the outer corner. This doesn't have to be perfect. I used my Precision Eye Brush (they eyeshadow brush end). Make sure to only use one side.

Lastly, pat orange into the middle third of your eye. This is right above the iris and will make blue eyes stand out. I used to the other side of Precision Eye.

Now, highlight you brow bone and under the eye. Then using a fluffy blending brush, carefully blend the colors on your eyelid together.

Curl your lashes and apply mascara and you are good to go! :)
