EOTD: Autumn Leaves

UPDATE: I’ve added links for all the products I’ve used. Someone requested a video on these kind of things and I may try that, when I have some more time on my hands. I’m not too keen on videotaping myself though, so it might as well never happen!

This morning I didn’t have to rush rush to catch a train, because my class at uni doesn’t start until 10.45 AM. However, I was a awake anyway and decided to use my extra morning time to try out a new color combination with my eye shadows and I think it worked out quite nicely. So after work, I touched it up a little bit and decided to take some pics and show you. So this is my Eye of the Day, which I’ve dubbed: Autumn Leaves.

I’m sorry about the shade of my camera in the second one, but you can still see the colors.

Products used:

Eyebrows:

– Clear brow & lash gel from The Body Shop

– Benefit Instant Brow Pencil in medium to dark

Eyes:

– Eye Colour Matte in Vanilla Cream no. 13 (The Body Shop)

Applied: on my brow bone

– Eyeshadow base: Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Applied: all over (from lash line, to eyebrow)

– NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Rust (no. 619)

Applied: all over, until just above my crease line

– Sephora Mono Eyeshadow in Lucky Penny (no. 54)

Applied: all over, covering the Jumbo Pencil base

– Sephora Mono Eyeshadow in French Riviera Gold (no. 48)

Applied: inner corner, going up a bit & until 1/3 of my eyelid, as well as on my lower lash line, just below my eyelashes.

– Sephora Mono Eyeshadow in Milestone (no. 17)

Applied: outer ‘V’, & up into the crease from there.

– Guerlain Khôl Me Brown 03

Applied: on the waterline, into the line of the outer ‘V’, as well as along the waterline of the upper eyelid.

I finished it off with:

Dior Iconic Extreme mascara in Black (no. 090)

– Inner corner of eyes: Ooh la Lift by Benefit

– Outer corner of eyes: Eye Bright Pencil by Benefit

Looking at it, it could have perhaps used some eyeliner on the upper lid as well, but I didn’t have time to do that this morning.

What do you think? Is this type of post a keeper? Would you like to see more of it?

    I really so like seeing make up, but perhaps, a photo or link to the products would be helpful to people to see what they look like before they go on.

      You’re welcome. Videos are also good, if your into that. I watch a few make up tutorial people on youtube.

        nah I’m not too hot on videos. That would take even longer and I’m not a very patient person with this type of stuff.
