I wish y'all were here with me as I'm writing this. I'm sitting on my balcony in only my
- I'm using cream shadow and gel liner, so eyelid primer is a must. I'm using ELF Primer. It's a $1, but I use it because it dries to a powder finish, unlike most primers, which is better for the rest of the products I'm using. It's also great for those with greasy lids and usually can't wear cream shadows.
- Just dab and pat it in. Done!
- Since it's almost autumn (September 23rd!), I wanted to use cream shadows, which I mostly avoid during summer.
- Apply ELF Copper Cream Shadow all over the lid. I use my finger for easiest application. You can build and make it darker, if you'd like.
- Next, use the ELF Essentials Duo in Butter Pecan,
- Apply the lighter shade to the inner crease.
- The darker shade goes in the outer crease. In other words, just half of your crease.
- Use the ELF Mineral Eyeshadow in Wild on the outer corner. It enhances the copper shadow and adds a little shading to the eye.
- TIP: I put a tissue under my eye to catch all out from the shadow.
- What makes this look a little different, and a little more autumnal, is that I use green liner. Green liner looks great on brown and hazel eyes, but it makes my blue eyes bluer, if that makes any sense!
- Keeping with the cream theme, put ELF Professional Studio Cream Eyeliner in Olive heavy on the upper lid. Maybe do a winged eye, if you know how (tutorial coming soon!).
- If you have a green liner, use that on the lower lid. Otherwise, gel liner on my lower tends to smudge.
- Use whatever you'd like, but I used Maybelline Falsies Flared. I wanted volume, and this brought it!
- If shadow intimidates you (I was intimidated for years), just apply the cream shadow, green gel liner, and mascara.
What autumn eye looks are you looking forward to wearing?
Has fall unofficially arrived where you are? Weekend plans?
