Makeup Look : Bronzy Plum on the Eyes, Berry Pink Lips

An easy, everyday face using some of my favorite eye shadows for autumn. I kept my face quite minimal with just some light foundation and a nude blush. Used some must-have bronzes paired with a gorgeous, muted plummy purple from Burberry for the eyes. I kept the eyes quite simple with just a pop of bronze, but you could turn up the intensity a bit more if you want something more richer and deeper!

For the face, I used Burberry's Fresh Glow Fluid in Nude Radiance over moisturizer and Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide in Suntan. Applied the same foundation under the eyes too. Used Bobbi Brown's Corrector in Peach to neutralize my under eye area and used Clinique Airbrush Concealer in Medium over it. Skipped using powder and used Laura Mercier's Creme Cheek Color in Praline on the cheeks.

For my eyes, I primed with Urban Decay's Anti-Aging  Primer Potion on the lids. I then went over with a sheer wash of Laura Mericer's Caviar Stick Eye Color in Burnizhed Bronze and topped it off with MAC's Antiqued Eyeshadow. These two make for a fabulous copper/bronze eye that is just so wearable and beautiful. I used a little bit of Burberry's Mulberry Eye Shadow on the crease and the outer corner. Mulberry is another favorite of mine - its a beautiful plum with hints of brown and a perfect color for fall. The formula is amazing and the texture is so smooth and silky. Completed the look with some eyeliner on the lash and waterlines, I used Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero, curled my lashes with Dior's Backstage Curler and used a couple of coats of Dior's It-Lash Mascara in It-Black. I also filled in some sparse areas of my brows with the Elizabeth Arden Brow Pencil in Natural Black.

For the Lips, I used NARS Damage, a perfect berry pink! Its quite a sheer color, but looks beautiful on any skintone.
