Pretty Orange Fall Leaf Eye Makeup Look

I found this old fall video by MakeupByAlli that I had copied the look in 2012. It was in one of my Fall Makeup Looks list on my blog. I have been revisiting these looks and copying them using makeup I have now. (I haven't kept all of my old makeup.) 

Here is the video where I have copied or you could say learned from: 

This look was not hard to do. Here are the steps I took to make this look.

1. She used the Anastasia of Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette. I don't have this palette, but I have similar colors. I used what I have. I'll list what she used and then I'll say what I used along side.

Vanilla, under brow - The Balm Balmsai Palette in Wipe Out

2. Makeup Geek Creme Brûlée - Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette in Salted Caramel. She mixed this with Caramel from the Amrezy Palette. My dupe for this is Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette in Peanut Butter. She put these two colors in the crease.

3. Caramel, outer crease

4. Makeup Geek Purely Naked, inner lid - Milani Bella Eye Shadow in Cappuccino

5. Morocco, center of lid - Kat Von D Monarch Palette in Wrath

6. Lorac Pro Palette in Sable, outer lid - I have this palette. I recommend it.

7. Deep Plum - The Balm Nude'tude Palette in Sexy. She mixed this with LBD (Little Black Dress) from the Amrezy Palette. I have a matte black from an old Wet 'n Wild Palette called Greed. She put these two colors in the outer corner.

8. Morocco, over top dark color to blend it out. I skipped this step and just used a clean fluffy brush to blend it out.

9. Legend - Sephora Storylook Palette in Jasmine eyeshadow is Sand in the Glass. This is a pale golden beige shade slightly metallic. I put this in the tear ducts.

10. She used a black gel liner and blended it out with her finger. I used my matte black eye shadow and ran it along the upper lash line.

11. Mascara

12. She put on false lashes. I skipped this step. I still have not experimented with false lashes. I might get the Target Advent Calendar with comes with a pair of lashes. That might be fun.

13. She used the black gel liner to make a wing. I took my black eye shadow and made a wing, but one of my eyes started to water and was erasing part of the wing, so I decided to use my NYX Matte Liquid Liner in black to go over top the wings to make them more permanent. Using the eye shadow first made it easier for me to do the wings because using liquid liner seems so permanent.

14. Powder

15. Bronzer

16. MAC Peaches Blush - I used Flower Cosmetics Peach Blush. I don't know if this is a dupe, but it is a pretty peach blush.

17. Becca Moonstone Highlighter, top of cheekbones - The Balm Mary Lou Manizer

18. Nude glossy lips. I used a nude lip by Revlon, but when I took the picture it had all worn off.

Fall Makeup Look Pretty for Blue or Green Eyes

Here is the look I did for tonight. It was copying a video made in 2009 by a popular youtube at the time named sayanythingbr00ke. I like how it came out. These are the steps to create the look.

1. MAC Painterly Paint Pot from lashes to brow. I used Jordana Continuous Almond Eyeshadow Pencil 2. MAC Naked Lunch, under brow. I used the pink e/s from Wet 'n Wild Walking On Eggshells 3. MAC Tete a Tint, transition color between the underbrow and the crease. She said this shadow is similar to MAC Soft Brown. I used the light brown shadow from an old Wet 'n Wild palette called Vanity. 4. MAC Deck Chair Pigment, lid. She said this color is similar to Stila Kitten or Urban Decay Sin. Also she wet the brush. 5. MAC Deep Damson, outer corner and outer crease. She said this color is similar to MAC Fig 1. I used from The Balm Nude'tude Palette the color Sexy. 6. MAC Maroon Pigment, outer crease. I used Sephora Cinderella Palette in Maiden. 7. She put Deep Damson on the lower lash line. I forgot to do that! I was going to go back and do it after I put on concealer. I wore Maybelline Fit Me Blush in #15. Urban Decay Lip Junkie Gloss in Midnight Cowboy

This is the video I got the look from:

Burgundy Eye with a Wing

My look for tonight was inspired by a video on the Chanel channel on Youtube. A look created in 2014 by Lisa Eldridge.

I copied the look using eye shadows I already have in my collection that were similar to the Chanel shadows. I made another tutorial for youtube showing what I did on my face if you want to check it out. 

Here are the steps I was following to get the same look...

1. Chanel Hesitation #106, lid: Wet 'n Wild Knock on Wood, eyelid color. A warm burgundy with a pearl finish

3. Chanel Exultation #108, center of lid. Urban Decay Spectrum Palette in Backlash. A cool fuchsia with a matte finish.

4. Chanel Admiration #114, inner corner. The Balm Balm Voyage Palette in D1. A warm yellow with a pearl finish.

5. Chanel Sensation #102, under brow. Urban Decay Mariposa Palette in Skimp. A warm beige with a satin finish.

6. Black Liquid Liner, upper lash line, wing

Pretty Golden Eye and Plum Lip

I had fun playing with my makeup today and filming another tutorial. This look turned out really pretty. I copied a video by Tanya Burr using cheaper makeup than her, but it still came out looking nice. I used Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bold Gold and put The Balm Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter on the top. I used NYX Matte Liquid Liner in Black. In the crease I put my bronzer and I also put it on the lower lash line. For lips I wore Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum. Tanya wore a dark vampy lip. I think this suits me better. For blush I wore Milani Romantic Rose Blush.

Here is my tutorial, if you want to see it. I was so happy the liquid liner went on ok!

1. MAC Vanilla, warm beige with satin finish, under the eyebrows. I used Too Faced White Peach from the Sweet Peach Palette

2. MAC Patina, warm gold with frost finish, eye lid. I used the 2nd eye shadow color from Wet 'n Wild Nude Awakening Palette. This was a limited edition palette, but you might have it like I do.

3. MAC Satin Taupe, warm taupe with frost finish, outer 1/2 of eyelid and outer part of the crease. I used The Balm Nude'tude Palette in the color Selfish.

4. Blend out the edges.

5. Bronzer in the crease. I used Benefit Hoola Bronzer.

6. Liquid Liner, upper lash line

7. Mascara

Lipstick: Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Addiction

Here is the video I made of when I applied my makeup. I think it's fun watching people put on their makeup. Somehow it is relaxing to me.

October Favorites

My favorites for TV this month is Once Upon A Time on Netflix. I am not up to date with the series. I went some time without watching it. I think that season 7 is on TV, and 6 is on Netflix. I'm in season 5 where the gang is in the Underworld and battling Hades' antics. I don't know why, but I just like this show. It keeps me entertained when I am eating lunch for a few moments. I have always liked fairy tales, and I guess that hasn't gone away with age.

This is the book I read for this month. It was so good. It takes place in the 1700-1800's. At first you get to know Mr. Whitaker and a little bit of his life, but that is just the beginning. The main character is his daughter, Alma. She is a botanist, and her life is fascinating. You get to learn about her and the people she meets up until her old age. I read this for my book club, and I was surprised to learn that about half of the people in the club liked the book, and half didn't like the book. There are some sexual situations in the book that offended people. It didn't bother me, but I can see how some people might be disturbed. I thought the book was really well written, and it seemed so real to me. I felt like I was really taken to a different time and place. I like it when a book can do that.

My favorite singer for the month is Jeremy Camp. He is a Christian singer I got to see him in concert. This is the first Christian concert I have ever been to. I wasn't sure how I would like it. I wondered if maybe the music wouldn't be as good as you hear on the radio. I know that for some famous singers that is the case. They look good, but they aren't very good singers. Well, Jeremy Camp is very talented. And his is the real deal. He has a powerful voice. I was surprised at all the songs I knew of his. He has done a lot of good songs. It felt like a worship service. The concert was held in a church. And Jeremy started out his career with leading worship for churches. He spoke to and it was all inspired by God. It was like a church service only tons more people than attend a regular church.
