An Autumns Eve - Make-up Look


The other day, I went shopping with the oh so gorgeous Rachel, and I did something I swore I would never do, even in the car on the way to shopping, I declared I would never do it, but I did. I bought a MAC lipstick (gasp!) I always thought they were way too overpriced, especially for someone who rarely wears lipstick, however Rachel really wanted a deep red/brown lipstick, and after swatching away, I found her this. I then tried it on, and well, the rest we say, is history. (My bank card calls it lack of control, but that's a different story.)


Instead of doing a whole post on just the lipstick, I thought I would do a whole look. I find that this colour just sums ups Autumn evenings, and think this would be a lovely look to wear to the pub, sitting by the fire, drinking mulled wine (yes?)



Base:
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

Eyes:
Brows: Mac Omega & Charcoal Brown
MAC Painterly Paint Pot
Loreal Super Liner
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara

Face:
MAC: Harmony and The Perfect Cheek Blush
Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow

Lips:
MAC Dubonnet Lipstick


I really like the strong lips and liner with a more nude cheek, I think it just makes the look that much bolder. But I think to tone it down a bit I could use a bit of black shadow instead of liner, but overall I'm really pleasantly surprised with this look.

What do you think of dark colours for Autumn?

  2. Beautiful colour for fall - and I think it's gorgeous with your colouring (i.e. fair brunette). Love how you kept the rest of the face simple to really let the lipstick shine :) It's funny you say you'd never buy a MAC lipstick (until now) - that's almost all I bought at MAC when I was in the States :p

  8. I generally wear dark colors all year round so my opinion for dark colors for fall is about the same. I do love wearing pink lipsticks in fall, because while everyone is wearing red. I stand out with my pink!
