This autumn makeup tutorial is picture perfect and totally chic. Best of all, it’s so easy to achieve that you’ll be able to wear it every day! For this look, you’ll need a neutral eyeshadow palette, a dark lipstick, and a great highlighter – which, by the way, is a whole new different talk altogether and I have just the list for you. Anyway, more importantly, you’ll need a great primer. Did you know that the secret to long-lasting makeup is applying primer before your foundation? It’s a total game-changer. And it works for eyeshadows too! A great eyeshadow primer will keep your shadow crease-free and pretty all day and night. Amazing, right?

Step 1: Apply Eyeshadow Primer
Eyeshadow primer is a must for keeping eyeshadow on all day! I used a mini blending sponge to apply Inglot Eye Makeup Base to the eyelids.
Step 2: Apply Bronze Shadow To Lids
Use an eyeshadow brush to apply this beautiful bronze color to your eyelids. I love Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze – its creamy texture makes it easy to apply, and it lasts all day.
Step 3: Define the Eyes
To give your eyelid some definition, opt for a pallet with lots of golds and browns. (I love the bold colors in the Kryolan Eyeshadow Palette!) For this autumn look, I’m using four colors on the palette: bronze, gold, brown and black.
Step 4: Blend
I picked up the bronze and gold eyeshadow with the brush then I applied it to the center of your eyelids. Next, I blended a little brown and black eyeshadow on the back of my hand and apply it to the outer corners of the eye. With a clean brush blend the colors on your eyelids. Use a large brush to dust off any excess shadow that may fall onto your cheeks.
Step 5: Highlight Brow Bones
To highlight the brow bone area, I used the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in white and blended out to sheer the product down.
Step 6: Apply Eyeliner and Mascara
Give your eyes, even more, definition by applying black eyeliner to the top and bottom lids. To make this the perfect day-to-night look, I chose a waterproof eyeliner by KleanColor. After curling the lashes I used a black mascara to coat the lashes. We love Lash Sensation by Maybelline – it gives the effect of full lashes, no falsies necessary!
Step 7: Apply Foundation and Highlight
When applying foundation, using a primer helps for long-lasting wear so using a foundation brush, I applied a thin coat of Smashbox Photo Finish primer. (It’s a bestseller for a reason – it really smooths your skin and makes your foundation last all day!) Next, I used a blending sponge to apply liquid foundation to your entire face. I love Makeup Forever’s Ultra HD Foundation because it’s super lightweight and it looks really good on photos and film. I also applied a highlighter to the cheekbones and the nose bridge to create dimension to the face.
Step 8: Set the Makeup
I dusted a translucent setting powder over foundation. This last step will seal your autumn look and keep it in place, I used Ben Nye’s Luxury Powder in Banana which is perfect for her of skin tone.
Step 9: Apply Lipstick
The Autumn look is all about dark neutral colors, and this lip color is no exception! I love a brown lip for fall, so I opted for KleanColor Everlasting Lipstick in Brown, then I lined the lips in their Deep Red Liner. (Do you have any favorite fall lip colors? Let us know!!)
Step 10: Fill The Brows
I saved the best step for last! Filling in your brows is an absolute must. I used a tinted brow gel that sculpts and defines – Sculpting Brow Mascara by Maybelline.
