Fall-2014-trend

No one creates a color palette like mother nature, and the rich berry hues found in the fall aren’t just for lips anymore!  Create an iridescent eye shadow color with a mix of textures and pigment.

Here are 5 steps to getting this dusky look:

  1. Rich Base.  Sweep a grape colored cream shadow all over the lid with your base shadow brush and clean up the edges with your domed shadow brush.  The cream will give the shadow something to hold onto while giving the red shadow a plum undertone.  Try Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Mould (1).
  2. Frosted Top.  Choose a shimmery red shade like MAC Eye Shadow in Cranberry (2) and press over the cream with your base shadow brush.  Work from the base of the lid up into the crease. For extra drama, go back into the crease with the plum cream and under the eye.  Top the center of your lid (again) and your lower lashline with the cranberry shadow.
  3. Dark Edge.  Add a tight black liner across the upper lash line with your fine liner brush (3). Red based pigments will bring out red in and around the eye, so the black liner creates a visual break as well as adding definition.  Try NYX Gel Liner in Black (4).
  4. Sheer Finish.  Choose a sheer berry lip color like No 7 Sheer Temptation Lipstick in Entice.  This color will balance the face without competing with the eye color.
