Tutorial: Fall Leaves

This is a tutorial for my Fall Leaves look using all Beauty from the Earth pigments. I kinda rushed through the process because I wasn't feeling well so it's a little sloppy, lol. Anyway, this is roughly how I did it so if you'd like to see how then keep reading! :)

I started with a clean eye and applied UDPP on lid and directly around eye area.

After applying NYX Milk JEP and patting that out with my finger, I applied Cornflower to my inner lid area. For better success though, don't carry it in quite this far, I think it threw off the look a bit. You just want a subtle hint of blue.

Next I applied Sweet Nibblets to my middle lid. (Again, don't carry the color too far. It should be directly over your iris; see first photo for reference.)

Next I applied Hangover to my outer lid.

I patted on some Wacky between the yellow and orange, and some Yellow Brick Road between the yellow and blue to help soften the lines a little. I also added a little Wacky to the outside of Hangover to aid in adding the next color. You don't have to do this part, though.
Next I added some Addicted to the outer corner, winging out slightly. Don't go too far though, you still need room for Isis! I also gently patted on a little of the red over Wacky to blend the two.

Next I added Isis to my outer corner, lightly blending over Addicted, and carrying the crease over Cornflower. (I made the crease a little too thick here, though. ;P)

Then after applying DGC Glitter Glue to my inner corner and lower lashline, I applied Ornamental to my tear duct area. I then applied Autumn in the middle, and Dragon Slayer on the outer corner, blending the colors into each other a bit.

Next I took my Isis brush and blended a little color from my outer corner onto part of Dragon Slayer. I also brushed some Ornamental along my browbone, lightly blending with Isis.

Then I used the same Ornamental brush to lightly connect the Ornamental on my inner corner with the Isis at the inner crease(over the blue).

Lastly I used Very Vanilla to blend around all the edges to soften them a bit, and a very soft brush to blend the general colors to keep it soft. The crease/browbone should look especially soft, blending out for a sort of smokey effect.
Add your own liners as you like; I didn't use any for the tutorial because it wasn't necessary and because I didn't want to have to remove it all, lol. For the original look (pictured) I used liquid on my upper lashline and brushed Celtic Charms, a deep almost purplish shimmery brown shadow, over top.

Curl lashes, add mascara or falsies or whatever you like to do. :)
