#MOTD: Leaves

Hey all! I am going a little make up crazy this month while I can still pull off these warm, rich shades. This look was inspired by an instagram collab with three LOVELY ladies: @xonoelle @lauraissharperthanyou and @stephaniejane.mua. Each of us pulled inspiration from a season and hopefully, you can tell I was inspired by beautiful fall leaves. This look is pretty dramatic and I hope you love it!

Lips: Annabelle Stay Sharp Lip Liner in Java**, Make Up For Ever Lab Shine lip gloss in D16**

Starting with a primer, I used my fave Smashbox Photo Finish all over the face and used the Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lid and under my eyes. I find it helps keep things in place a little bit better. Continuing with my base, I used some green concealer from my Lise Watier wheel as well as the Ivory under my eyes as per usual. I blended in the Benefit Hello Flawless foundation all over and have found I prefer this without a powder on top so I skipped setting it today.

Further concealing and brightening my under eyes, I used my favourite method of applying the Hard Candy Glamoflauge all over and blending it out before using a blotting paper to take away some of the creaminess that it has. Then I blend once more and set it with the Well Rested concealer. With my base complete, it’s time to fix up my eye brows. I have been using the Annabelle Brow Show to highlight and fill in my brows quite a bit lately and then to set, I am using up my Gimmie Brow.

Onto the eyes, I started strong with the Jesse’s Girl 9 pan palette using a very rich burnt orange (shade #6) in the crease and then brightening it slightly with the true pumpkin orange (shade #3). Then, I used the slightly shimmery nude (shade #2) all over my lid before taking a wet brush (using the Mac Fix +) and putting Blue Brown all over the mobile lid.

To keep the look warm but sharp, I used the Annabelle liquid liner in Espresso which is super matte but does fade a bit and gave myself a nice wing. At this point, I decided I was missing a little something and added Bronzey by Annabelle to my lower lash line and smudged everything out before applying mascara. I do not have any record of what mascara I used but it’s a pretty safe guess that it was my usual Too Faced or Marcelle mascara.

To finish up the face, I took the Buxom Illuminator and tried it as a highlight to no avail. I then went in with the Balm Mary-Lou which never fails me. My blush is Tarte’s Mirage. To finish the look, my lips are a mixture of Annabelle’s lip liner in Java and my vert favoutire lipgloss: the MUFE Lab Shine gloss in D16.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this warm and autumnal look! Please check out everyone elses look on Insta.
