Autumn is upon us and I can’t be more exited, as it is my favorite season of all, so today I created this super simple, yet pretty and sophisticated look that was autumn-inspired. Keep reading below to see all the products used and how I achieved this look!
I had so many requests on doing a simple classic smokey eye, that I thought why not write a step-by-step guide on how to create it. I used all Clarins* and I have to say I’m absolutely in love with the products. This is pretty much my first time using their makeup so I will be sharing my first impressions as I go thought the products with you.
Start by applying foundation/concealer to even out your complexion. I used the new Clarins Everlasting Compact foundation (shade 109 – wheat) because it lasts really well, gives a great matte coverage and pretty much perfects your skin, I applied it with the makeup sponge that it comes with because I love the smooth finish that it gives. This foundation also has spf 9 which is great, as it’s important to wear sun protection all year round.
Blend a blusher/bronzer underneath your cheekbones for a healthy glow, I didn’t have one by Clarins so I used Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic Swish & Pop blusher in First Love which is very pretty and natural.
Dot some highlighter on your cheekbones, brow bone, the inner corner of your eyes, down the centre of your nose and on your cupids bow – to get that beautiful glow! I used the light shade from the Eye Palette as it gives a lovely pinky champagne highlight and looks very fresh and dewy.
Using the Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Forest’ apply shade 2 all over the lid, use shade 3 to add a bit of definition by applying it on the crease and blending out and up towards the brow bone. Apply the 4th shade in the outer V, upper and lower lash line and blend. Finish by adding the lightest shade (shade 1) to highlight the inner corner.
I love this little palette it has a beautiful selection of neutrals/forest green/greys and the quality of the shadows is really good, so creamy and easy to blend. And just look at the packaging – I absolutely adore it! Apply mascara/eyeliner to finish the eye look. I also applied some Eylure falsies for even more drama, but feel free to skip this step
My lipstick of choice was Clarins Joli Rouge in Litchi 755 and Roseberry lipliner to go with it. Such a gorgeous rosy/berry shade I absolutely love it. It’s lightweight on the lips and not drying at all beautiful satin finish, the pigmentation is also wonderful.
So there you have it – your perfect easy Smokey Eye look perfect for the Autumn season, in a few simple steps. Have you tried anything from Clarins? Their new Graphik Autumn collection is to die for! Tag me in your pictures if you decide to recreate this look.
