Wearable Fall Face Of The Day!

Well I woke up this morning and actually had to put a sweater on which inspired me to start thinking about fall makeup looks. I trifled through my collection and put together a look that I think is perfect for any fall day! Not only that but all the products I use are affordable and easy to find!

What products I used->
-Olay Daily Renewal Anti Aging Moisturizer
-Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup
-E.l.f Studio Pressed Powder
-Revlon Anti-aging Concealer
-Physicians Formula Baked Pyramid Matte Wet/Dry Bronze
-Wet n Wild Coloricon Blush in Pearlescant Pink
-NYX HD Eyeshadow Primer
-Maybelline Color Tattoo in Mossy Green
-Wet n Wild Idol Eyes Eyeshadow Pencil in Pixie
-E.l.f Eye Brightening Quad in Ivy and Day to Night
-Maybelline Line Stiletto in Black
-Forever Noir Long Lasting Eyeliner in Black
-Rimmel Day 2 Night Mascara in Black
Below is a closer view of the e.l.f eyeshadows I used! It will be helpful in this next part.

I applied all my facial products before I did my eye makeup. Brief how to on the eyes: 1) apply eye primer to your whole eye area from your lid to your eyebrow and under your eye near the lash line. 2) apply your green color eye base to the lid and a little above the crease and blend edges well. Also apply this color under your eye near the lash line. Then apply your lighter base color to the area right under the eyebrows and to the inner corners of the eye. 3) With a small eye brush apply the light green shade all over your lid. Do not go above your crease. 4) using a crease brush or a fluffy eye brush apply the bronzy brown color to your crease from your outter to inner corner. 5) using another clean smaller eye brush apply the dark matte green to the outside v of your eye. Blend it into the light green shade. If you have to apply more light green for blending purposes then that's fine. 6) Take the light cream color in your Day To Night palette and apply it to the area under your brow bone and to the inside corners of your eye where the bottom and top lash line meet. This will really brighten your eye area and make your eyes pop! 7) Take a blending brush and dab it into the cream color and blend out the edges of the shadows to soften them up. 8) with an eyeliner brush apply the dark matte green to the outer 2/3rds of your bottom lower lash line and smudge it a bit. 9) apply a black eyeliner to your upper lash line. I winged mine out but you don't have to. Now apply mascara and your done!
I hope this is helpful and if you have any further questions or suggestions feel free to email me! If you try this look yourself please share how it came out. I would love to see it!
*Remember that you never have to use the exact eyeshadows or products that I use. If you do not have these items but have other eyeshadows in your collection that are similar than by all means use those! If you have a highlight color that you prefer or an eyeliner that works better for you than that is perfectly fine!
