Make-up | Autumn Berry Eye

I am a neutrals girl when it comes to  shadows, but recently I've been loving mauve-cranberries as my new everyday shades. They are the perfect colour upgrade for autumn.

 how to...

For this look, I started with the elf Mineral Infused Primer for my face and the Urban Decay Primer Potion for my eyes. I have been loving using the tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation as my base during this season. The Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla has been my go-to concealer.

For the eyes, I started by using the Mally Age Rebel Waterproof Shadow Stick in Smoky Quartz as a base. I love the smokey berry shade. Next, I used Tease from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette as a transition shade in the crease to blend out the cream shadow. For my lid shades, I used the pink and burgundy shades from the Sleek i-Divine Storm palette. I used the mauve-y pink shade on the first two-thirds of my lid and the cranberry/burgundy shade on the last third. Using the same burgundy/cranberry shade on a denser brush I deepen up the outer V. I Next, I used Bootycall for the inner corner highlight and Foxy for my under the brow highlight, both from the Naked 2. Now it's time for liquid liner, I use Jordana Fabuliner and Wet n Wild H20 Proof Liquid Liner. I like the Jordana Fabuliner, but it isn't waterproof and my eyes tend to get water-y, so I like using the Wet n Wild for the wing. I then set that with Blackout from Naked 2 for a matte finish and long-lasting wear. I followed that up with curling my lashes and using the Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Zero on my tightline and Whiskey on the outer half of my waterline. For mascara, I used tarte Gifted.

 As for the rest of my face.... Eyebrows, I used tarte's Brow Architect. For contouring, I used the Sleek Contour Kit in Light. I used NYX Dusty Rose for blush and the highlight side of the Sleek Contour Kit for a highlight. Lastly, I used tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Plummy Rose.

I have been wearing this look constantly. It's just a touch different while still being completely wearable. The mauve cranberry shades are perfect for fall.
