Well I guess the title pretty much gives it all away, doesn't it (I'm not exactly great at keeping the suspense going). For this makeup look I have decided to switch things up and film a video to show you just how I created the look. It's been something that I have been thinking about for ages now & even attempted a few times but there was always something I wasn't fully happy with. It's not like I became content with it all overnight, but I realised that it may never look perfect so I just decided to give editing a shot & here it is. I'm not sure how I will get along with YouTube, it's all so new to me so I am just taking it one step at a time & seeing how I will get long. This blog will still remain my main focus for the time being because I just love writing and it's definitely much easier snuggled up on the couch/bed in your pjs & writing up content etc. But when I want to do something like a makeup tutorial or I want to experiment I will try use my YouTube channel instead or alongside my blog. This is such a nerve wrecking moment for me, so I do hope you enjoy the video and if Youtube isn't really your thing that's ok too because I'll tell you all about today's makeup look right here…
Considering we are now officially in October I thought I would create an autumn/winter inspired look, which focuses on a dark burgundy lip. The lipstick of choice is my newest MAC addition & that is of course Diva (I've got a full review all about it here by the way). It's a perfect autumn shade in my opinion & it feels really comfortable to wear too.
For the eyes I kept the autumn shades going as I used rich & warm tones of brown, as well as a shimmering gold (all within the Lorac Pro Palette which I have also reviewed here if you're interested). The eyes are actually quite simple to create, it's all about gradually building that depth in the crease & constantly blending for a smokey effect.
I opted for a light base & covered up any imperfections with a good coverage concealer. I also wanted to make sure that I had that natural glow to the skin so I used both a liquid & powder highlighter, but in small doses to avoid looking like a disco ball. I added some natural definition and colour back into my skin by lightly contouring my cheekbones.
I really hope you enjoyed this look weather you watch the video or you just look through the photos. I really enjoyed creating this overall. It was fun stepping out of my comfort zone with such a dark burgundy lip. I'm now really looking forward to all the cosy nights in, the candles, the hot drinks, the fashion & of course the makeup that comes along with autumn/winter. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the look & if it's something you could see yourself wearing this time of year?
