Classic 'Autumn Day' Look

Today its a beautiful day outside! The sun is shining, its warm, the fall air is ever so breezy and the leaves on the trees are just starting to change colour - today is one of those days thats perfect for picking apples, choosing a pumpkin, enjoying a hot chai tea latte and letting GO of all the worries in life. I wanted to create a makeup look that reflects the essence of this 'beginning of autumn' season!

I started with just a touch of concealer and tined moisturizer. I then applied a more bronze toned blush - Sweet as Cocoa by MAC. For the eyes, I actually blended a few shadow shades to create a silver-khaki effect - I used era+coquette by MAC and also blended in Sephora's queen for a day shadow. I used a warm brown liner (Mambo by NARS)and smudged 'queen for a day' into the upper lash line before applying black mascara to finish off the eye-look. For the lips, I blended in a deeper mahogany shade 'Fire Down Below' by NARS with Fanfare by MAC, a salmon pink shade! I think that blending soft shades with a bit of warmth is what the beginning of autumn is all about!!!

Renata, I really like your make-up, but I do not think denim is your fabric.
