Makeup Monday, Inspired by Nature: Woodland Eyes
As summer is just beginning to mellow into Autumn, my thoughts start to turn toward all things cozy and fall-ish, including more muted makeup colors. I thought it would be fun to do another look in our Inspired by Nature series; this one takes its cues from the waning greens of summer, the deepening browns of nature, and the rich golds of early Fall.
What You’ll Need:
- Sandstone Cream Eyeshadow
- Army Eyeshadow
- Fen Gold Eyeshadow
- Moss Eyeshadow
- Rich Earth eyeliner
- Small All-Over eyeshadow brush
- Angled crease brush
- Smudger brush
- Eyeliner Brush
Start off by applying Sandstone Cream to your brow bone with the Small All-Over brush, and add a dab right over your pupil area of your lid. Then, using the same brush, grab up some Army shadow and stamp it all over your lid, working around the spot of Sandstone Cream in the center.
Now take your Angled Crease Brush and dip up some Fen Gold; using a slightly circular motion apply into your crease, starting at the outer corner and working your way in to about the center of your lid. Be sure to blend, blend, blend; we really want these greens to meld together and create a nuanced look. For an extra touch of bright green, add a touch of Moss eyeshadow right in the center on top of the Sandstone Cream.
Now, using the Smudger Brush, dab a little bit of Sandstone Cream on your lower lid in the inner corner, then some Army in the center, and a bit of Fen Gold on the outer third of your lower lid. Again, be sure to blend and smudge those all together really well. Use your eyeliner brush to finish off the look with Rich Earth and a generous coat of mascara.
I like to pair this rich eye look with a warm blush such as Cherry Bloom or Warm Rose. I used Kiss of Ruby lip shimmer on my lips to add just a hint of warm color. Check out more Inspired By Nature looks here!
