FOTD | Autumn Gold Day to Night

I really want to start doing more of these types of posts especially with the festive period springing upon us. I also chose to do a little twist and go from a day look and transfer it so it was suitable for a night out or if you're going out for a meal. So without further ado, welcome to my FOTD.

Having blue eyes I like to wear more neutral/brown/bronze shades as it accentuates my eyes. Which is perfect for me when it comes to Autumn/Fall. Although this year I'm hoping to incorporate more colour into my eyes such as greens and purples so watch out for future FOTD.

To start with on my face I used my beloved Smashbox Photo Finish Light Primer followed by L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation and Smashbox Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer to hide those pesky breakouts I've been having recently.

On my cheeks I just wanted a subtle glow of colour so I chose Benefits Coralista just lightly swept on the apples of my cheeks with a highlight of RiRi Hearts MAC Diamonds Cream Colour Base. I lightly bronzed my temples and hollows of my cheeks with MUA Bronzed Perfection.

Now the fun part, my eyes. For a base I just used my MAC Painterly Paintpot all over the lid and under along the lashline. Then to really make the colour pop I used the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 621 Pure Gold all over the lid up to the crease. I then patted MAC All That Glitters Eyeshadow on top and moved on to the next colour. To define my crease I used Maybelline MNY My Shadow in 721 which is a shimmery brown colour and blended that out. I also took this colour under my eye and blended it along. I chose a Phloof! from my MAC palette to highlight my brow bone and the inner corners of my eyes.

I lined my eyes with Guerlain Liquid EyeLiner in black, tightlined with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Zero and applied a couple of coats of CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume mascara. I filled my eyebrows with MAC Charcoal Brown eyeshadow. To finish the look of I chose a very natural lipstick, Laura Mercier Creme Lip Colour in Caramel. Voila my autumn day makeup look.

Now for the twist.... Let's darken the look for night time.

All I did to achieve this was take the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Liner and lined my waterline. Applied a couple more coats of mascara, this time I used L'Oreal Miss Manga Mega Volume. And finally switched up the lip colour for a more berry colour. I chose MUA £1 Lipstick in Shade 2.

Hope you enjoyed this kind of post. Do give me feedback in the comments below and look out for future FOTD.
