Welcome back beauties!
Into Autumn and with Winter approaching, I’ve really been feeling khaki tones and metallic warm lips. It seems the focus is on warm reds and berries this season, but I’m taking inspiration from the decades of the 90’s in these cooler months with basic browns and khakis, so I wanted to show you all an Autumn/Winter themed look that I created with some products available from Adore Beauty.
The main products I used to create this look are:
- Gorgeous Cosmetics 8 pan palette – Essential Shades*
- Nude by Nature ‘Virgin’ Blush*
- Napolean Perdis DeVine Goddess lipstick in ‘Thalia’*
- Any foundation of your choice! I used the new Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation*
- Claytime loose mineral eyeshadow in ‘Lime’
- Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector in ‘Opal’
After applying primer, foundation, concealer and bronzer + highlighter, I used the Nude by Nature Virgin blush on the apples of my cheek. This blush is a slightly warm tone blush but pretty natural. It has a beautiful, fine shimmer that adds a nice glow.
Up next I moved onto the eyes. Started off with my brows using the ChiChi brow pomade and set with the Eye of Horus brow gel. For eyeshadow, this Gorgeous Cosmetics palette has all the essential shades, and even though I haven’t captured it well, the second shade on the top ‘Gold Digger’ is described as a ‘green brown’ and has a subtle shimmer to it. This shade was the base for my khaki lids.
I used a combination of the matte, mid-tone brown ‘True Taupe’ and the soft taupe ‘Smudge’ for my transition shade. The deeper brown ‘Fudge’ was used to add dimension to my eyes, focusing on the crease.
I then applied the ‘Gold Digger’ shade for the base of my khaki lid, adding some more intensity by using the E.L.F Cosmetics Mist and Set spray. The Claytime shadow in lime was added to the inner corners to add some extra greenish spark to my eyes. Whatever was done on the top, I repeated on my lower lash line, and smudged out my eyeliner for a smouldering look. I added some Ardell individual lashes on the outer corner of my eyes after applying some Rollerlash mascara.
To finish off the look, I wanted a slightly metallic brown for my lips. Naploean Perdis Devine Goddess lipstick in ‘Thalia’ was perfect for this look. It has a slight metallic sheen to it. It’s super easy to apply and comfortable to wear. I love this shade for Autumn and Winter.
My hair was super simple. I used my Evo Hair ‘Easy Tiger’ smoothing treatment to make my hair sleek, blow dried it and tied it back into a knotted bun. I took inspiration from Phoebe from ‘Friends’ for this updo. It has such a 90’s vibe to it and I really think it completed the look!
I’m really pleased with the way this turned out. I’m loving my hardcore 90’s pose even more….
I’m definitely feeling the love on the khaki tones in this look paired with the brown lip, and I’ll probably be rocking variations of this look through the cooler months. I’d like to play it up with some different lip colours, and possibly add a muted berry tone to my lower lash line for a pop of colour. Overall, I’m pretty happy with the look and the products used to create them.
That completes this post! What do you think of the look? Loving the khaki tones as well or would you feature another shade for Autumn and Winter? Let me know in the comments section below!
