Hi, guys! How are you doing today? For today’s tutorial, I’m doing a Fall/Thanksgiving look. Thanksgiving (US) is coming up this Thursday and I am so excited! Shortly after is Black Friday, yet another holiday I love. Tomorrow I’m going to be posting ways to save money this Holiday season (or any season, really) so keep your eyes out for that! I always put our Christmas tree up on Black Friday so I’m really excited for that too!
Anyway, back to the tutorial. I love bronze tones, particularly around Fall. I think they look flattering on every skin tone and every eye color.
Step one: This is one of those really sublet steps but it makes a big difference in the end result. Using a cream bronze eyeshadow, place it all over the lid, bring it a little bit above the natural crease.
Step two: Next, use a dark brown eyeshadow. Place it in the inner corner and outer corner. Using a concealer brush, gently blend the two shades together where they met.
Step three: Go all over the lid with the bronze shade. It will cover the brown but leave an underlying depth. Taking a darker, shimmery bronze eyeshadow, blend it into the crease and above using your finger.
Step four: Using the brown cream shadow (or a brown eyeliner) liner the lower waterline into the inner corner, and the upper lashline (tightline). Apply the bronze shade on the lower lash line. Finish with mascara.
Step five: Do your eyebrows, concealer, foundation, blush, all that fun stuff! Ta da! Your look is complete.
This look is so simple, it’s great for beginners or just an easy makeup day.
