Hello October, my favourite time of the year! There’s something so tempting and sexy about those autumn colours that I’m instantly feeling inspired when it comes to makeup. So obviously I prepared a new Face Of The Day look for you and this time my new-ish Marc Jacobs Beauty Parisienne eyeshadow palette steals the spotlight.
BASE: For a light coverage and glowy complexion I used the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser in the shade ’01 Finland’. To conceal my dark circles I first applied the Bobbi Brown Corrector in the shade ‘Light Bisque’ and then buffed in the triangle shape the Maybelline Eye Eraser concealer. To set it in place I used the Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot powder very sparingly.
CHEEKS: For a bit of sculpting and bronzing in one I used the Benefit Hoola bronzing powder and then I dusted a bit of Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in “Sweet” on the apples of my cheeks for a healthy pinky and glowy flush.
EYES: And now comes the fun… The whole look is done with the Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No 7 eyeshadow palette in ‘Parisienne’. First I applied the lightest shade on the whole lid and buffed the light brown into the crease. Then I patted the burgundy-eggplant shade on the outer 2/3 of the lid and the dark brown in the outer V. To smoke it even more I used the darker taupe silver on the left end throughout the crease. In the end I took the burgundy and the taupe silver shades also on the lower lashline.
For the liner I used the Marc Jacobs Highliner in Blacquer and to hold my curled lashes in place I applied the Catrice Glam & Doll Mascara. Lastly to fill in my brows I used the MAC Mystery eyeshadow, just like always.
LIPS: To complete the autumnal look I used the newest addition to my MAC lipstick collection – the MAC Captive that looks definitely darker on my lips than on swatches.
