Thank you to Ulta Beauty for sponsoring today’s discussion. #UltaTrendAlert #StyleHunters4UltaFall is on the horizon…..and I’m OBSESSED with fall friendly makeup. One of my absolute favorite fall trends? A soft, daytime smokey eye. Soft suede-like shadows blended in beautiful warm colors……one of fall’s prettiest looks is a Suede Eye. It’s soft enough for everyday wear…..but also looked stunning when we had a MUCH overdue date night last weekend. This soft look will be on regular rotation for me…..I just LOVE it!
Ulta Beauty is the perfect place to feed my makeup addiction…..and I visited a few weeks back with the intention of finding an eyeshadow palette that would help me to create a soft Suede Eye. Enter the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar shadow palette. It’s soft, super blendable colors are stunning, and it SMELLS like a candy bar. I’ve been playing with the soft colors…….and am in love!
So, how did I create a soft Daytime Smokey Eye?
Daytime Smokey Eye:
1) Apply Urban Decay Cosmetics Original Eye Shadow Primer Potion to lids. Brush Butter Pecan shadow to entire lid.
2) Apply Frosting shadow in crease and on edges.
3) Use Caramel shadow to blend around crease and gently brush up to brow bone.
4) Blend Caramel and Butter Pecan shadows to lid. Soften edges of each color.
So what is your favorite fall makeup look? Will you be trying a Daytime Smokey Eye or a Velvet Eye?
