FOTD: An Apricot/Rust Autumn Look

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I wanted to share a Face of the Day from this past weekend that I think turned out pretty well, using apricot and rust colors. I wanted to play with just one warm color that I could use just as a wash all over my lids. I also had this new Korres blush I picked up in a Hautelook haul that I was dying to try out. All the products I used for the look will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Take a look!

The two stars of the show are Prestige Total Intensity eyeshadow in the shade Charmed and Korres Zea Mays blush in Apricot.

Here's a closeup of the eye, I just did an all-over wash of Charmed with Benefit Hoola bronzer blended on the crease. This apricot/rust color really makes blue eyes pop.

By not using eyeliner and keeping the lips pretty low-key, this warm, bright look is still appropriate for daytime.

Products Used:
* Foundation: Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation (Light 44) applied with a damp Beauty Blender
Undereye Concealer: MAC Pro Longwear concealer (NW15)
* Powder: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium all over the face, with Light under the eyes.
* Eyebrows: Smashbox Brow Tech To Go (Taupe)
Eyeshadow: An all-over wash of *Prestige Total Intensity eyeshadow in Charmed with Benefit Hoola bronzer blended on the crease.
* Mascara: L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara (Blackest Black)
* Blush: Korres Zea Mays blush in Apricot
Bronzer/Contour: Benefit Hoola
* Makeup Setting Spray: MAC Fix+ 
Lips: * Kardashian Beauty Joystick Lip Lacquer in Sea Coral and NYX Megashine lipgloss in Frosted Beige

 Hope you enjoyed!

  1. Okay, I just found your blog through your comment. I love this look! I keep trying to do orangey eyeshadows, and failing, but this has inspired me to try again. Maybe I will have to add a dark brown liner to keep it from looking like pinkeye, though. (It doesn't on you at all - that's my problem.)

  2. Thanks for checking out my blog and the kind words! Yes, orange shadow can venture into the pink eye territory. Maybe adding more browns in the crease and as a liner could make it all work!
