Match your makeup to your mood
If I were to describe autumn in a colour palette, I would pick copper tones, rich browns and red wine. Lucky for me, this is also the must have makeup look of the beauty world for autumn/winter ’18.
how can we achieve this?
Start with your eye makeup. Move over smokey/panda eye there’s a new kid in town and she’s much more subtle and easy to clean off. Whether you’re all about a matte or shimmer effect, golden copper and rich browns are all the rage. Blend together a mix of light to darker shades. Don’t just stop on your top lid, add a little under the eye to replace your usual eyeliner.
For a more relaxed look, don’t perfectly fill in your eyebrows (that’s so 2017), instead try the relaxed and wild brushed brow. Swap your brown pencil for a brow gel to keep those hairs in place.
Bronze those cheeks
With summer gone, we need to fake it till we make it. A light dusting of bronzer contoured strategically around you face will give you the illusion of a thinner, more defined facial structure. Contour your bronzer by brushing it Along the sides of your forehead and temples. this will create balance between the wider upper half of your face and the more narrow lower half.
Next move onto the area below your cheekbones starting from your ears and ending in the middle of your cheeks.
End by brushing a small amount right below your chin.
End with a wine stained lip
Time to trade your spritz for a rich red. Match your liquid to your lips and opt for a dramatic stain, gloss or matte lipstick.
Make sure to prep your lips before applying this dark colour. I like to make my own DIY lip scrub using a teaspoon of raw sugar and a pea size amount of pawpaw ointment. Combine the two then massage gentle onto you lips. Wipe (or lick off) then apply a hydrated lip balm while you do your other makeup. By the time you’re ready to apply your lipstick your lips will be prepped and plump.
For a perfect lipstick look use a lipliner in the same colour to outline the shape of your lip before applying.
For a more relaxed look (which is all the rage in 2018) use a lip crayon and blend it through using your fingers. This will yield a smudged, effortless look like you missed your mouth on the merlot.
