I already uploaded these pictures to my Facebook page but I figured I’d keep all the Autumn series looks together on my blog. So here’s a little blogpost about it. I started the idea for this series with this picture and it needed a look to go along with it, right?
So I made a look with gold, orange, a brownish red and green. The colours in my look are not nearly as vibrant as the picture but I still like them.
I used Sugarpill’s Goldilux, Asteria, Midori and Olivia on the bottom lashline. And a tiny bit of Diamond Eyes below the brow.
The dark brown/red and green are from some of my Sleek palettes.
I didn’t do any fullface pictures because I only made up one eye and I was basically too lazy to do half-face pictures, hihi. Sorry!
I hope you guys like this addition to the All About Autumn series. There is another update coming but I still need to work on cropping those pictures and I started work again after my vacation so my spare time is limited so it might take me a few days.
I don’t have lots to tell but a lot has been going on in my life but that’s mainly preggo talk and I’m not sure if anybody is waiting on updates about that. I actually doubt it but if I’m mistaken: let me know. 🙂
And let me know what you think of this look, do you like it? What’s your favourite part about autumn? Please let me know in the comments!
A long time ago I saw *this* look from Marjolein, a.k.a. The Art Is Makeup, on Facebook. I was immediately smitten with the brown and red colours and I really wanted to do something like it. I actually forgot a bit about these pictures and suddenly I ran into this unfinished blogpost. So I finished it as fast as possible, I hope you like it.
I added a little touch of gold in the inner corner but I think, other than the gold, this look is a lot like what I wanted to do with the inspiration Marjolein gave me.
When I saw promopictures of this palette I knew I had to have it. Just had to!
All the colours in it are so beautiful and if I could make a palette, I even think it would be a lot like this one. There are a loads of green shimmery and matte colours in it, so even if the rest wouldn’t be interesting to me I’d still want it. But the other colours are browns, pinks and purples in various finishes and the combination of those colours make this one of the most usable palette’s for all kinds of eyecolours.
It just looked too perfect to be true!!
But my last Sleek experience wasn’t as great as I’m used to from Sleek and I read some negative reviews about this palette too.
Those reviews were negative because of the bad pigmentation of some eyeshadows in this palette. Would this be it? Would Sleek let me down again and crush my love for this brand completely? Would this be the last addition to my Sleek palette collection because, as so many brands out there, they are just not worth the money anymore?
The lovely people from Enchantra were kind enough to send me this palette so I could see for myself.
Read on to find out what I think of Sleek’s Garden of Eden.
Some time ago I got an amazing pigment from Enchantra called Darling. I saw a picture of a bird called a Racket Tailed Roller on Pinterest.
It’s gorgeous pale but intense teal feathers reminded me of the colour Darling but also of Sugarpill’s Lumi. And I could easily imitate those beautiful brown feathers with my Kat von D Saint palette.
So on one of my last days of vacation, I got my pigments together and got to work on this cute birdy look. Isn’t he adorable?
Here’s what happened.
At Linda’s request I made a tutorial for the Quite Colorful Quetzal look. She liked the colour combination and she also provided me with the perfect blue/teal colour for it! When I made the original look, I had to mix a lot of colours to get close to the colour of the bird and she mentioned Sugarpill’s Darling might just be perfect for the job.
When I received Darling I was pretty sure this would fit perfectly so I got to work right away. I used some other products from the original look but that only makes this tutorial easier than it originally was. I also made it a bit lighter but that’s just to make it a bit more wearable, just pile on some more colour if you want this look to be more smokey.
I’m sorry about the quality of some pictures, they are not always a 100% sharp. I didn’t take too many pictures of each step and because of that I sometimes only had a choice out of 3 pictures, none of them being entirely sharp. My battery was almost empty so a lesson for next time: recharge battery first!
