The autumnal smokey eye

So first off I'm sorry for being such a crappy blogger in the past couple of weeks. I managed to get myself completely out of my routine which meant I wasn't writing posts and getting them up when I wanted too. However I'm back my thoughts are collected and I'm hopefully going to be getting out three posts a week.
So I've been doing the 100 days of makeup challenge on instagram and today I thought I would show you this look as I am so in love with it. I love a good smokey eye especially when it's bronzey and warm toned. I think that this is just the most perfect autumnal eye look so without further ado lets get on to the products I used.

L'Oreal Infallible Primer -
I love this primer and I'm pretty sure this is about my fourth tube of it. It is a really nice smoothing primer and even though it describes itself as matte I don't find it dries out my already dry skin.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation -
If you are a regular reader you will know I absolutely love this foundation. It is incredible for dry skin. It has a really pretty dewy finish with a medium coverage finish. I just find this to be the perfect everyday base.
Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer -
I love this concealer for under my eyes. For a change I actually find that I am able to slightly highlight with this which is something I don't come across very often. This is again very hydrating and I wear it a lot.
Essence Soft Touch Mousse Concealer -
I haven't quite made my mind up about this yet. It is such a strange texture for a concealer. I don find that it offers a really nice high coverage however it can look a little dry so I definitely prefer using it under my foundation.
NYX Micro Brow Pencil -
This pencil is such a good dupe for the Smashbox brow tech matte pencil which I love. It is very fine which makes it super easy to draw in little hairs in any sparse patches. I have the shade Brunette which is a little bit on the warm side however I can get it to work if I use a light hand.
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Shadow Pencil in Bad Girl Bronze -
These shadow pencils are so handy. Even though this is a super dark shade it stills blends out really beautifully, for this look I used it all over the lid and underneath the eyes as a base for the other shadows.
Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 1 -
Okay so I have no idea if the shadows from this palette have names so I'm super sorry about that but for this look I used the 6th shade from the right on the bottom row which is a stunning red-brown all over the lid and then I used the 7th shadow from the right on the top row which is a stunning chocolatey matte brown in the crease and under the eye to smoke everything out. Then finally I used the 2nd shade from the right on the top row to highlight my brow bone.
No7 Extreme Length Mascara -
This mascara has a super small wand so I tend to use it for my bottom lashes however for this look I also used it as a base for my other mascara.
LancĂ´me Hypnose Mascara -
I am so in love with this mascara, it gives the perfect amount of both length and volume. It honestly gives me the perfect almost false lash effect.
Sleek Solstice Palette -
Oh my golly this highlight palette is the best, if you are a fan of a super intense highlight then you need it. For this look I used a mixture of the bronze and the lilac shade.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer -
Again another one of my all time favourite products. This for me is the perfect bronzer for lighter skin as it isn't too orange but still does a beautiful job of warming up the face.
NYX Liquid Suede in Soft spoken -
Finally I finished off the look with one of my favourite products at the moment. This is just a beautiful dark nude shade which although I have worn it pretty much all summer I feel is a fab autumnal nude.
So that's it for today, I'd love to know what your go to autumnal look is!

  3. I have been hearing a lot of good things about that Sleek Palette, I wish it was easier to get my hands on in the US.
