When I was a little girl, I used to constantly get in trouble for getting into my mom’s makeup. It started with lip gloss, then eye shadow, and before you knew it, I was walking the middle school hallways with bluest glitter shadow and the glossiest lips. Fast forward 10+ years and I’m still wandering through the aisles of Ulta swatching every Anastasia Liquid Lipstick!
This Fall was no different, there are so many beautiful coppers and metallics that are trending this season, so I was excited to partner up with my friends at Ulta to recreate my version of their “Fire & Shine” makeup look.
Disclosure: I put my makeup on in the strangest order but I’ve always done it this way! So to all my makeup artist friends, I’m so sorry if i’m doing it all wrong- LOL!
To create this look, I started with the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30. My skin has been so dry lately, so this tinted moisturizer feels like a dose of water on my skin. The medium coverage is perfect for everyday use and definitely has an overall light feel!
After I set my moisturizer with loose powder, I primed my eyes and placed the shade “Sauced” from my Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette over my lid. Then in the crease, from the middle to my outer lid I applied the color “Cayenne”. To deepen the crease, I used the shade “En Fuego” and used a blender brush to smoothly blend everything together!
I know this is strange, but I like to put my mascara before I put my eyeliner and my absolute favorite one is Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara! After the first coat your lashes will be so thick and long. That’s probably the reason why I’ve gone through 3 tubes *oops!*
I always get questions about how I do my winged liner, and my secret is a felt tip applicator! In order for me to get precise lines, I love using Butter London Glazen Lustrous Liner. I start with an even line on the edge of my upper lid. Then, I form a line from the outer corner of my eye towards the tail of my eyebrow. Then you connect the lines and you’ve created the perfect winged liner in two steps!
To add my last layer of depth, I used Urban Decay Cosmetics Limited Edition Heat 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Collection on my waterline. To make the inner corners of my eyes pop, I placed the Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eyeshadow and blended it with my lid.
I don’t usually do a bold lip, but Fall calls for it! On the base of my lips, I used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in the shade “Gash”. My favorite part of this look, by far, was the Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip in the shade Moscow Muled. It’s a gorgeous copper, metallic shade that I’m going to be wearing all season! As much as I love the gorgeous sheen, I definitely recommend using a lip liner to help maintain the gloss!
To accentuate my cheek bones and slim the bridge of my nose, I used the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in the shade “Champagne Pop” . If you have thinner lips and want to make them appear bigger, you can place some highlighter on the Cupid’s bow of your upper lip! This reflects light off the top of your lips making them appear bigger! I love this shade for every season, but especially in the Fall! It has a warm tone that really makes all the oranges and reds pop!
I didn’t apply any fake lashes, but to add drama to your eyes I love the Ardell Faux Mink Lash #810! It’s the perfect amount of thick and flirty!
And that’s it! You’ve completed the whole look!
