Makeup Trends & Fall Fashion with Fake-Leather: Part II

38 comments:
 
I'm back with another tutorial and the second installment of my Makeup Trends & Fall Fashion Series with www.fake-leather.com To reiterate what I explained in the first post, I teamed up with Adriana of Fake-Leather.com (my absolute favorite fashion blog) and asked her if she would create fall outfits in this season's hottest colors to match my makeup eye-looks that would do the same. She agreed and together we created the five killer makeup & fashion combos - this is just one of them. Let's get to it!

Every fall without fail we see a a switch from summer's airy, easy makeup to the dark and sexy smoked out looks of fall and winter. Let's face it - the smokey eye is here to stay! But just because it's an age-old look doesn't mean you can't update it by infusing it with some of the season's favorite colors for Fall/Winter 2012; Titanium & Ultramarine. Start off by putting a grey/silver color all over your lid (recommendations for eye-shadows after the look), then blend it out into a beautiful blue green color. This unexpected mix of colors adds instant allure to the traditional smokey eye while still staying true to timeless fall trends. For an extra eye-catching effect, take some silver glitter and pat it all over the lid to enhance the grey undertones of your eyeshadow base and brighten up an otherwise dark look. This look is great for an evening out and even better because it takes only minutes to complete. Don't believe me? Check ou the tutorial later on in the post and see just how quick and simple this super smokey look is!



My recommendations for a great Titanium Silver & Ultramarine Green are Galaxy and Sea Mist both $5.99 by Makeup Geek. I used these two shadows in the creation of my look and you can see them in action in the tutorial I created for this look.




Here's Adriana's interpretation of the color combo. I love how she took shorts, an item usually reserved for spring and summer, and worked them into a fall outfit by doing them in a rich color and fabric, then kept the rest of the outfit appropriate for the season in that sickening gunmetal grey jacket which I WANT SO BAD! Don't you love it??

    1. Thank you Alexis but no need to be jealous, I can assure you. What little talent I have has come to me entirely over the past year and a half simply through admiring and imitating the work of others. I still have lots to learn, but if I can do it so can anyone. Before I was blogging I couldn't have told you the difference between eyeshadow and mascara for the most part. Lol.

      Thanks for taking the time to read & comment, I appreciate it!
