Thanksgiving is approaching, and I am pumped. It is my favorite holiday, a day to be grateful, surrounded by those you love, and being able to eat good food all day. It is also fall, cuddle season, layering clothing season, and darker bolder makeup season. I came up with four looks perfect for this time of year, they are also great for making eye colors pop depending on the look and your eye color.
This first look is a matte cranberry wine look. Everything is supper blended and warm. I started with a base as normal, you know eyeshadow primer and then a matte cream from lash line to brow bone. Then for number 1 I used Salted Caramel, a light warm mid tone brown orange, from Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette as a transition color, I really brought it high above my crease. For number 2 I used Cherry Cordial, a wine color from Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette with a fluffy pointed brush to lightly blend it carefully into my outer crease and v building up slowly. I finished with some mascara and was ready to go.
The next look I did was a purple plum graphic one. I started with the same base and added tape to the corner of my eye. I started with number 1, a light purple color, I used a purple from a Pixi duo called Lavender Bloom. I applied it to the inner 2/3s of my lid. Then I took Risqué from my Too Faced Natural Matte Eyes Palette and Hustle from Urban Decay and blended them into the outer third of my eye. They are both deeper to mid toned purple colors, you don’t have to use two colors or even these two purples, honestly I was gonna use one, but couldn’t pick which one. I then for number three used a Nars duo in Demon Lover, the deep matte purple color. I took it on a angled brush and lined my eyes using the tape to get it sharp and dark. I then dragged it from the wind into the crease, I blended it a bit with a pencil brush to keep it very concerted and to a small amount. Then of course finished with mascara.
This golden look is so easy and looks very nice. All I did was apply Maybelline Tatoo Cream Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze on to my lid and blend it up past my crease with my finger. Then I took a gold eyeshadow, Caramel from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Semi Sweet, and set and blended it all out. I added a tad bit of eyeliner to the outer corner just for a bit more definition. Then I added mascara and continued on with my day.
This last eye is supper pretty and warm, I used the halo technique to switch it up. I used the same base technique as the first two looks (number three was the color extra creamy for this look). I used my Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette for a lot of this look. I started with Nuts About You on a pointed blending brush. I packed it into the corners using the brush than blended though the crease to connect them (number 1). Then I took Peanut Butter on a fluffy brush and just blended it all out again (number 4) . I then used my Too Faced Natural Matte Palette in the shade Honey Butter right in the center of my lid (number 2). I then intensified number one so it did not get lost and blended the edged between number one and two to get rid of harsh lines. Then of course the mascara.
I hope you enjoyed these looks, I am loving them all for fall. I think some would really make some eye colors pop. Even if you are not celebrating Thanksgiving I hope you still enjoyed these looks for fall.
