Autumn Look Inspired by MakeupByTiffanyD

Tiffany recently posted a fall tutorial (Changing Leaves), I loved the look of using a green, brown and bronze combination.  This summer I'd done mostly crazy bright green looks, this was a nice transition into fall and I had to toddle over to the makeup table and try it out.  Her look is much deeper and smokier, but with my pale skin and eye shape going dark and smoked out on the lower lash can get tricky.  What I was inspired by the most was the green brown transition.

Updating to include pictures of a fully done face in natural light I did the next day.



Here's the finished side first time through in questionable lighting/wb:


And here's what my other eye looks like without anything on for reference. :)


I used Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Whiskey as the base, Too Faced duo Lucky Charms (just the dark green side) for the green, not pictured but fudged around with Urban Decay Smog and Buck to deepen the crease/outer edge a bit but ultimately used more of the Too Faced Ever After dark brown bronze shade, Urban Decay Sin as brow highlight and Too Faced Honeymoon to brighten up/warm up my inner corner with the yellowy gold (not something Tiffany did).  And as most days, used Urban Decay Shakedown for filling/darkening eyebrows.


Been loving CoverGirl LashBlash Volume for mascara lately and used the Physicians Formula liquid liner even though I'm not that great at applying it.  Came out acceptable today though, whew.  So, that's about it.  I took more pictures but getting the lighting and white balance, well.  It's a challenge.. everything went strangely cyan/cool in these pictures, but at least I'm not orange eh. :)

The rest of my face was recently washed so I just buffed on some MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in Light to even it out a little and cut the shine, Milani Minerals Blush in Luminous (loving it so much!), a couple nude and bronze lip glosses and Revlon Age Defying Moisturizing Concealer under the eyes.

And on the nails are Nicole by OPI in Sounds Grape To Me with Sinful Colors Frenzy on the tips to cover some chips - ended up looking pretty neat too!
