A little more drama...

Warm-Toned Fall Look

Since it’s technically fall, regardless of what the weather here in San Antonio suggests, it’s time to do something warm with a touch of drama.  And just to spice (or pumpkin spice?) things up, I switched up the lipcolor as well. One is more subdued and the other is a bit more dramatic.

Happy Pumpkin Spice Season!

For this look, I built it around a Nars single eyeshadow called Persia. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH, even though it took me a long time to figure out how to wear it without looking crazy. It’s very intense and intimidating looking in the pan. I mean, it’s bright, burnt orange or rather “matte paprika” as Nars describes it. So I get it.

A little more drama...

A little more drama… (P.S. the red lip was my favorite combination)

But Persia likes to play with warm browns, especially mattes! So that’s what I did here.

For this look, I used a combination of Urban Decay’s Pulp Fiction eyeshadow palette (discontinued, but dupable), the Naked Basics palette and Nars Persia and Galapagos.

  • A matte beige all over the lid, from lash line up to the brow (I used Righteous from the Pulp Ficition palette)
  • Matte burnt orange into and slightly above the crease using a fluffy blending brush (Nars Persia)
  • A warm, medium matte brown into the crease using window-wiper motion with a slightly more dense, pointed crease brush (Tyranny from Pulp Fiction)
  • A yellow-based matte cream on the lid, using a flat brush and tapping motion (Foxy from Naked Basics)
  • A matte or shimmery dark brown in the outer V (Nars Galapagos, which has a nice golden sparkle)
  • A shimmery highlight on the brown bone and inner corner/tear duct (Venus from Naked Basics)
  • On the lower lash line, I layered first Persia and then Tyranny, followed by Galapagos on the outer portion of my lash line
  • Nars Eye Paint in Baalbek as liner (I used Real Techniques Silicon Liner brush to apply on my upper lash line and a flat definer brush to push it into my lower lash line)
  • L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade in Medium Brown
  • Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in Clear

Lips

If you like this look, but don’t want to commit to a $25 Nars single, I would suggest the Morphe eyeshadow palette in 35O. It’s 35 colors that include a dupe for everything I’m using above plus a bunch more colors for about $22 (there are a lot of blogger affiliate codes out there, just google to find one!)
