Makeup Tutorial - Rusty Autumn Colors

Autumn has definitely arrived in Seattle: wacky Halloween decorations hanging on every door, bulky sweaters worn around the streets, and leaves aging into rusty colors. It's really quite a beautiful site.

To celebrate Seattle's gorgeous Autumn days, I'm wearing rusty colors too. Here's an easy makeup tutorial on how to wear shades of Autumn:

Step 1

Using a flat shadow brush and brown eyeshadow palette, like Hard Candy Baked Eyeshadow Duo in "Rush Hour" (below), apply darker shade to your lids.

Stop at your natural fold.

Using the same color, line your bottom lash line with the same flat shadow brush.

Step 3

Using a blending brush, apply the lighter shadow to the rest of your eye lids, including your brow bone.

Step 7

Apply a rusty colored lipstick to your lips.

I am using Estee Lauder Long Lasting lipstick in "Sand Stone."




Easy, natural and perfect for fall.
