Fall in love Tag #2: Foliage

Oh Fall, I so dreaded your arrival and yet I’m so happy you’re here and the second appointment with the Fall in Love Tag, initiated by Marta of Caffelatte for Breakfast lets me express my love for this season’s colors. I adore the orange, brown, red leaves falling from the trees among the green grass, and the bright blue mornings when the fresh air slaps me awake during a run. Autumn you are lovely season blessed with wonderful nature that inspired this look today. I went for a walk in the woods to collect leaves and pine cones to decorate the house and I was blown away by the green, red, orange and yellows, so here is what I came up with.

Face:
  • L’Oréal Infallible 24H Matte foundation in 24 Golden Beige
  • Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 20 Sand
  • KIKO Cosmetics Full Coverage Concealer 03
  • e.l.f. High Definition Undereye Setting Powder
  • Make-up Studio Loose Translucent Powder
  • Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit in Light to contour
  • MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Fairly Precious as blush
  • The Balm Mary Lou Manizer as highlighter


Eyes:

  • Maybelline Color Tattoo in Eternal Gold
  • Nabla Cosmetics Clementine in the inner third of the lid, Peach Velvet as transition shade
  • MAC Coppering in the middle of the lid
  • MakeupGeek Cosmetics Dirty Martini in the crease
  • Wet n Wild dark green “eyelid” shade in the outer V, I depotted all my WnW palettes so I have no idea of the name, sorry
  • Zoeva Graphic Eyes in Opulence under the eye, set with Neve Cosmetics Ember
  • Kiko Super Colour Eyeliner 104
  • Rimmel Scandaleyes in Black to tightline upper and lower lashline
  • Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara
  • Essence Half Lashes


Brows and Lips:

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Auburn and Chocolate
  • Makeup Geek Bitten eyeshadow
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel
  • KIKO Smart Lip Pencil in 704
  • Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in Fab Orange

I used all my current favorite makeup for this look and am quite happy with the result. However, this was one of the typical occasions in which your eyeshadow look is on point and then the eyeliner fails you. I will try the scotch tape trick next time to get a sharper line. Oh and forgive my unruly hair, hihi.

I would love to hear your thoughts and critique on this look. Practice makes perfect, so keep your eyes open for the following fall inspired looks, and don’t forget to check out the #FallInLoveTAG page for more info if you want to participate to one of the installments!
