A basic fall combo: brown lids/brown lips
Fortunately, I used to be carrying this chocolatey reddish brown smoky eye yesterday as a result of I spent the vast majority of my shift on the bakery prepping dry chocolate cake combine from scratch…which can or might not have left me coated in a tremendous layer of cocoa powder.
(By the way in which, you haven’t lived till you’ve virtually tipped an industrial-sized vat of cocoa powder on high of your self. Sure…my life is a thrill a minute, I do know. Facet word: Holy crap, there’s SO MUCH SUGAR in chocolate cake combine!)
Concerning the look
Apparently, the universe wished me to be coated in chocolate in each the make-up and culinary sense, and these chocolate smoky eyes have been tremendous easy to do with a fast smudgy eye base from an opalescent bronze pencil eyeliner, which I topped with a matte reddish brown eyeshadow.
After I first began carrying eye make-up about one billion years in the past, I believed that if you happen to wore any matte finishes, then the whole lot — your liner, your eyeshadow and your base — additionally needed to be in an identical matte, however that’s so not the case. You possibly can completely combine and match your finishes, which is what I did right here with the pearly base and the matte eyeshadow to create a satin end.
Be at liberty to play and layer totally different finishes if you happen to don’t already, since you by no means know what you’ll prepare dinner up!
Enjoying with mixing
Additionally, experiment together with your mixing. I’m usually inclined to “blow out” my eyeshadow, a.ok.a. “mix out the perimeters so that they fade out easily,” however I went for extra definition on the edges on this look by selecting to not buff out the perimeters as a lot as common… I kinda prefer it!
The extra apparent edges of the eyeshadow are framed by a bolder forehead, which I whipped up by mixing forehead pencil with an eyeshadow.
Make-up worn on this look
So now, in fact, I must know what’s your favourite form of chocolate. What’s it? I’m a semi-sweet kinda lady with regards to baked items, however for sweet, it’s MILK CHOCOLATE ALL THE WAY.
I’d take off my hoop earrings and throw down for a bit of See’s Milk Chocolate Buttercream, no joke!
