Here’s a subtle jewel-toned gradient—a perfect look for fall! We don’t have four seasons here in Manila, but I still seem to pattern my makeup accordingly, for some reason. I think the natural inclination towards the end of the year is to go a little bit darker and vampier, though I couldn’t tell you why! A really popular direction is to also incorporate lots of berry colors, whether it be on your eyes, cheeks, or lips.
The focus of this look is the little peek of cranberry down at the end. I kept the rest of the face bare. Because I have no imagination.
1. Cover the entire lid with a blackened purple base. (shu uemura x Karl Lagerfeld Painting Liner in Blackish Satin Purple)
2. Pat on a cool, periwinkle blue with violet undertones on the inner two-thirds of the lid. (Art Deco 82)
3. Apply a midtone cranberry color on the outer third of the lid. (Stylenanda 3 Concept Eyes #Saturn*)
4. Blend the two colors together.
5. Add a matte ochre shade on the crease to transition the shadows and blend it out. (theBalm Sultry)
6. Line upper lashline with a black liner for definition. (Maybelline Master Liner BK-1*)
I’ve been enjoying this 3CE Eyeshadow a ton, which is weird because I usually go for neutrals or purples. Still, I’ll take it! 🙂
For the rest of my face, I just added clear mascara to groom my brows, a neutral blush for warmth (NYX Raisin), and a rosy sheer gloss (Le Métier de Beauté “Esthetique” from Bauhaus Kaleidoscope Lip Kit).
I hope you found this helpful and easy to follow. I really love the transition into the cranberry; it’s sort of like how we’re easing into fall and winter. 🙂* This product was provided, free of charge, to be reviewed as part of the bntgirls’ first mission.
