Fall Burgundy Bliss: A FALL Tutorial


Hey readers! So this fall, the "IT" colors are forest green, taupe, charcoal, nude, and burgundy. I have a beautiful burgundy Stila Eyeshadow that I thought would be perfect for fall, so I decided to do a fall eye look with this color! Honestly, I think this is the prettiest tutorial I have done so far. I am in love with this eyeshadow look! I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! Keep reading for directions, products, and pictures!!

Products Used: 
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • MAC's "Satin Taupe" Eyeshadow
  • Stila's "Burgundy" Eyeshadow
  • Sephora Black Kohl Waterproof Eyeliner 
  • Covergirl Lashblast Volume Mascara
  • Maybelline One By One Mascara (bottom lashes)
  • Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in "Candy"
  • Clinique Lipstick in "Angel Red"
  • ELF Lipgloss in "Berry Cherry

Directions:

Eyes: 

Step 1: Prime your eyelids. Make sure to put primer on your lower lash line because we are going to be using a lot of products on that area. 
Step 2: Take a taupe eyeshadow and pack it onto your lid. I used MAC's Satin Taupe. It is a beautiful taupe color that works so well with the fall trend!
Step 3: Blend the burgundy shadow into your crease and outer corner. This will intensify the look and add a beautiful hint of burgundy to your eyeshadow look. 
Step 4: Take a blending brush and smooth out all the harsh lines. 
Step 5: Now take your eyeliner and heavily line both of your waterlines and lower lash line. I am never the type of person to wear eye liner on my waterline but I felt like being creative and making it work! I actually like how this turned out. 
Step 6: Take the burgundy color with a pencil brush and bring it under the eyeliner. This will give a sultry appearance to your eyes that looks GORGEOUS! The purpl-ish undertones warm up your eyes. 
Step 7: Curl your eyelashes. I think this is one of the most important parts of this look. Spidery long lashes make your sultry winter eyeshadow look into a fall appropriate look! I used Covergirl on the top and One By One on my lower lashes because the wand is easier to use for that. 

Lips: 

If you have a cranberry/mauve lip color, you do not need to do as much layering as I do for the lip portion of this tutorial. I just had to mix and match to find my desired color. I chose a deep mauve lip with cranberry undertones for a festive and fall feel. First I put a light coat of the Estee Lauder lipstick, then dabbed some of the Clinique red lipstick. To tone down the bright colors, my mauve lipgloss by ELF gave a great finish. 

 Face:

I went pretty easy on the face. I just heavily contoured my cheeks for a harsher appearance. No blush or anything.
