I decided to do a fall eye shadow look using some oranges, browns & gold shades! For this I used the Ring the Alarm palette from The Vault collection. I didn’t have time to record a video tutorial for this one, but the steps are similar to my usual eye shadow techniques that I’ve done in the past, just using some different colors! I hope you enjoy this look
After I primed my eyelids with concealer and set with my setting powder, I first went in with my transition shade called Rush (1). Don’t be scared that this is an orange color, because as you can see from the swatches picture, you can really use this lightly and build it to the color you want. I put this shadow in and above the crease with a fluffy blending brush.
Next, I went in with an orange-brown shade called Mugshot (2). This color was more focused in the crease directly, and in the outer corners of my eyes. I didn’t bring this in too far to the inner corners, because I wanted to keep that area lighter. To apply this I used a more dense, natural hair blending brush.
After that, I used a darker brown called Secret (3) in the outer V (outer corners) of my eyes and just blended that in with Mugshot, but again, kept this darker shade to the outer parts of my eyes. To apply this I used a smaller, denser brush specifically for the outer V, but you can use any smaller blending brush. I just wanted to keep the application more precise.
Here comes the bling...for the lid, I went with a foiled gold shade called On Camera (4). This has a bronze tint to it, so it went really well with the browns and orange shades. I applied this with a firm shading brush that I sprayed with MAC Fix Plus, and put this color all over the lid. I then went back in and blended the crease colors back in and also went in with more On Camera as needed until I got the smooth, blended and pigmented look that I wanted!
After I completed my eye shadow look, I used my Kat Von D liner to draw on my top winged out liner, and then curled my lashes and applied my Arbonne It’s a Long Story mascara to the top lashes. I then went in and did my standard foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush & eyebrows.
Last step is to finish the lower lash line and highlight. I went in with my Tarte “Tartelette” palette in the shade Supermom (hah!) to highlight my brow bone and blended out my transition shade more. Then, I put on my L’Oreal Voluminous black pencil liner in my lower water line. I blended that black out with our transition shade, Rush, on a pencil brush on the lower lash line and connected it to the outer V. Finally, I highlighted the inner corners of my eyes to really brighten them up, so I used my CoverFX highlight palette and used the 4th shade which is a more champagne shade.
I hope you enjoyed this eye shadow look! There will be plenty more to come since there are three other palettes from this one amazing collection!
