Brown Eye (Shadowed) Girl

One of the best things about the transition of Summer into Fall is that your makeup and wardrobe transitions just as the seasons do. 

One of my favorite ways to spruce up my makeup in Fall is by utilizing beautiful browns, plums, golds, and warm toned shadows. Today's look uses one of my favorite eyeshadows from one of my favorite palettes - the Tarte 'Golden Days and Sultry Nights' palette. I go back to this palette all the time because it has 5 amazing shadows - a shimmery brown, true gold, shimmery green, matte brown, and matte white.

For this look, I blended the brown shimmery shadow into my crease - building color until it's deep and dark. Then, I patted a mixture of the gold from the Tarte palette and 'Beige' from my Lorac Pro 2 Palette, blending those two shadows into the brown shimmery shadow. For a little pop of color and fun, I used the green shimmery shadow in my inner tear duct and lower lash line. 

To keep the look a little more subtle and 'Autumn-esque' I used a brown liner. I find myself really opting toward brown liners lately because they're a little less harsh, but still give the same effect as black. 

I used L'Oreal's Infallible Lacquer Liner in 'Espresso' to line my eyes and create the cat-flick. The formula of this product is so perfect - it's creamy and smooth and goes on easily. I love this product so much!


I used my Nars Creamy Concealer under my eyes and then used my (newly-acquired and OH so LOVELY) Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette to set my under-eyes. I used that same Anastasia palette to contour, bronze, and highlight. I have been loving experimenting with this palette and I'll be doing a post on it soon.

To finish the look off, I used YSL's Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in 'Pink in Paris' - one of my favorite lipsticks of all time. 

Do you like this look? How would you transition your makeup into Autumn?
