Autumn winter make up trend looks- nude and smokey.

Nude- Autumn winter look
Nude Look:
Think soft, delicate and ethereal, not bland and boring.
Skin is prepped and flawless with a hint of peachy/apricot creme blush on cheeks. Focus on the eyes, with a colourwash across the lids and a little crystal highlighter placed in the inner corner of the eye. 2 coats of mascara. Lips are lined and filled in with pencil then a slick of tinted colour with *treatment* to keep lips soft and supple in a honeyed nude shade complete the look.

Base-Foundation- Dior -Forever- foundation in shade 31
Concealer- Sisley in shade #3
Shadow-Morococo +  Diamonds & Pearls blingtone- myface
Mascara: Mac Plush Lash

Blusher-Becca Creme Blush-Terracotta

Liner- Medium tone/beige shade lip pencil-myface
Colour: Pixi-Tinted Brilliance Balm in shade Baby Bare.

Smokey -Autumn Winter Look

Smokey Look:
Eyes are the focus with defined, sultry smokey-ness. A strong smokey eye can be a little *draining*, to counteract this, add a very sheer hint of bronze across the complexion to add a little warmth and choose a warm terracotta blush but use it very sparingly. Lips can be kept very muted or a little *spiced* up.

Warmed up with a drop of Sisley- Sunglow mixed into the *base*
Foundation-Dior- Forever Shade 31
Concealer- Dior Skinflash #3 (to brighten)

Cheeks: Blusher-NARS powder blush: Liberte

Eye pencil: Use a black pencil on upper lid and on the edge of the lower lid (taken half way across the lower lid) Pencil- Bella Pierre-Black- blend out with cotton bud so there are no *harsh lines*
Shadow: Illamasqua Obsidianacross the lid and taken to the crease of the eye and then blended up gently. Highlighter in the inner corner of the eye: Illamasqua-Slink
Mascara- Mac Plush Lash
