I did this makeup look recently and initially I thought it was a but summery for this time of year. Normally all the looks you’ll see in the autumn are based around a dark or matte lip or smoky eyes. However, I’m naming this orange toned look ‘pumpkin pie’ and forcing season appropriateness onto, and that’s that. I really like it, so whatever!
My base was super simple, a dab of Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, a pump of Rimmel Match Perfection foundation and a healthy dose of the Bourjois Cream Blush in ‘Nude Velvet’.
On my lids I used the matte shade ‘New-tral’ from the Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro palette all over, followed by the shimmery ‘Awaken’ over the top in the centre and inner corners. A quick slick of Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl and L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes followed.
Finally, I used the Barry M Cor Balmy! lip balm in the shade ‘Trouble & Strife’ for a dose of moisture and a pop of colour.
And, er, I forgot to do my eyebrows. Amazing beauty blogger right here!
I really like the finished look, even with the ungroomed eyebrows! The Iconic Pro palette is known as a dupe for the Lorac Pro palette, and while I haven’t tried anything from Lorac, I can say that the quality of the Makeup Revolution is excellent. The ‘Awaken’ shade is super shimmery but has no fallout while ‘New-tral’ is very well pigmented for a budget matte. I really must do a full review of this palette as it’s my current favourite.
Another budget bargain is the lip balm. It looks really cheap and crap, but actually applies really nicely and gives a good colour pay off for a balm. Plus, it’s punny and that is always a bonus.
What do you think of this look? Would you wear it at this time of year or do prefer a more classic autumn look?
