'Fall Foliage' Look

'Fall Foliage' Look
This look is inspired by the great colors of the leaves in autumn. I finally used my Vainglorious eyeshadow and a new pigment from Magnolia Makeup (sent to me). I have to try out the other colors before I give a full review but so far so good. 


I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte beige) all over my lid and on my brow bone as my primary base.

On my inner lid I applied MUFE #22 Pure Pigment (matte mustard yellow).
Next on the middle of the I applied Magnolia Makeup 002 Kente Pigment (shimmery gold orange).
On the outer lid and crease I applied MAC Vainglorious Eyeshadow (metallic maroon).
For the inner crease I used MAC One-Off Eyeshadow (frosty kelly green).
To define the outer V I used MAC Shadowy Lady Eyeshadow (matte dark plum).
On browbone area and for blending I used Wet 'n' Wild Brule Eyeshadow (matte light nude).
For my lower lashline I used MAC Shadowy Lady Eyeshadow (matte dark plum) - OUTER and MAC Vainglorious Eyeshadow (metallic maroon) - INNER.

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown).

I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Gel Eyeliner in Black.
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black.
I used MAC Opulash Mascara in Black for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Princess False Eyelashes for effect.


For my lips I used MAC Ravishing Lipstick (peachy coral) topped with MAC Ember Glow Lipglass (nude peach).


I prepped my skin with Stila One Step Correct Primer. I used MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC45 for my face set my t-zone with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. I used MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW35 and NC45 under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage Set.
I used MAC Gingerly Blush (ginger bronze) for my cheeks and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour and highlight.

* Magnolia Makeup Pigments were sent to me by the owner/creator of Magnolia Makeup.
