Recently I've been going for a pink smokey eye makeup look. Since the beginning of Autumn, I've been including some colour in my eye makeup, as it is really brightening and uplifting on my face. I've been using the Makeup Revolution palette Chocolate Deluxe, which I brought a few weeks ago and have been opting over my other eye shadows. The colours include a section of pinks and a gold eyeshadow. In this post I'll talk through the look and the different products I used. Hopefully it will give you some easy eye makeup ideas.
For this look, I use the brighter pink (1st one on the second row) and apply it using my Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. The eye shadows are really pigmented and can be built up as much as you like. You could also even use a slightly wet brush to make the colour more intense (which I have yet to experiment with). I then apply one of the lighter pinks with white undertones from the top row of the palette to my brow bone. I then blend the two colours using the Deluxe Crease Brush, also by Real Techniques. To make your eyes really pop, apply some of the pink shade underneath your lower lashes.
For the eyeliner, I've been using the Maybelline Master Graphic. I've been absolutely loving it. I'm so fussy when it comes to eyeliners, as they need to be super black, great intensity, long lasting and easy to use. So far it ticks all the boxes, and have really enjoyed using this one.
Lastly, I apply a generous amount of mascara. I've been trying out the Bourjois Twist up the Volume, which is pretty good. It's definitely not the best one I've used, but it would probably make my top 10 mascaras. It's great at lengthening the lashes and evenly coating them. If you don't like clumps, this mascara is for you. But I do think the whole 'twisty 2 in 1 mascara' is kind of gimmicky.
So there's my recent autumn eye make up. Super easy and hopefully it has given you a few ideas. Oh, and sorry about the grubbiness of my Makeup Revolution palette, but it is what it is. We keep it real here on this blog. What make up look do you go for in the Autumn and Winter?
