Makeup in the autumn and winter means smouldering, smoky eyes paired with sharp contours and glistening highlighters. The second the leaves started turning orange we swiftly waved goodbye to light, natural summer makeup and cracked out the dark eye shadows and bold blushes; and honestly, we haven’t looked back.
In celebration of these colder months we have created a quick, simple to follow yet dramatic (as always) makeup tutorial, inspired by the beautiful burnt orange autumn leaves we love seeing at this time of year. Although the eye look is wearable both during the day and of an evening, we couldn’t resist paring it with full coverage and high glam face makeup to give you some Friday night makeup inspiration.
Of course, not all makeup products are created equal and we had to mention the ones that stood out to us as the best of the bunch while we created this look. The gorgeous, glittering orange shade we applied for this eye look is called Orange You Fancy by Anastasia Beverly Hills; the formula of a lot of Anastasia’s eye shadows are just perfect, they are easy to blend and build- making them seriously versatile and a staple for makeup kits. We also love the Sleek Contour Kit, which is perfect for achieving a sculpted complexion and for a fraction of the price of most contour kits on the market. The cream consistency of the product makes it quick to blend, a must for glamming up on the go!
