I've been loving all the summer themed posts that have been popping up on alot of blogs but living in Australia means that I have to wait a while for summer to show its face. Seeing as I haven't seen much winter EOTD's lately, I thought I'd try one for myself.
Winter is usually about the greys and blues but I'm still stuck in Autumn mode so that means I've been loving all my burgundy's, plums and rusty oranges. I haven't really given my MAC Antiqued or Cranberry eyeshadows any love of late so I thought I'd throw them into a look. The look came out very smokey and dramatic so I'd personally reserve it for a night look.
Here are swatches of the products I used: (From left to right) MAC All that Glitters, Antiqued, Cranberry, Sketch and Embark eyeshadows and Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on liner in Corrupt
Here's how I got the look:
I started off by priming my eyes as usual with Urban Decay Primer Potion also bringing it on to my bottom lashline
I then patted MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot all over my eye from lashline to brow bone
I patted MAC Antiqued eyeshadow on the inner half of the lid
I patted MAC Cranberry eyeshadow on the outer half of the lid and blended the point where the two shadows meet
I took MAC Sketch eyeshadow on a belnding brush and worked it in to the crease and outer v
I then darkened the crease and outer v with MAC Embark eyeshadow and also worked it into my bottom lashline
I blended out the crease using MAC Soft Brown eyeshadow
I took some MAC All that Glitters eyeshadow on a pencil brush and worked it around my inner corner
I lined my top lashline with NYX Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Black
I lined my waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on eye pencil in Corrupt
I coated my lashes in Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara
