Affordable Fall Eyes feat. NYC!
So as you probably may know, fall is just up the corner and I couldn't be any happier. Not because of the changing trees (or palm trees rather) but because this means the temperatures are going to be below 80 soon and I can return to wearing cardigans daily :D
I was again inspired to do another fall look, and also because I've had a mini obsession with redish-pruples this week. Isn't that color gorg though - I die. This is a very warm tone purple look, pretty much suitable for any eye color - especially brown eyes! And this look also incorporates a cheap, drugstore palette - NYC's IndividualEyes in 938 Union Square. You can check out a review and swatches here:
I used the base that comes with the set, it actually works decently - it makes my shadows last over 6 or so hours before starting to crease and fade a bit. I used the purple color all over the lid, then added the medium brown shadow to my crease. The skin tone color served as a highlight as well as a shadow to blend out the harsh lines. Finish off my gel liner in black, sweep the purple under the eyes, and top it off with mascara and black kohl on the lower lashline!
I have a ton of other eye looks to post.. they will all be dark smokey looks for the most part because I am experimenting with shadows and I want to create that perfect senior photos look. Ahh I'm so nervous -______- What did you guys wear for your senior pictures?
