Not sure if it's the weather getting colder every day or all those fallen leaves, but of late, I find myself reaching for darker (than my normal) makeup colors. It's still quite bright and sunny outside, though, and a vampy lip or a smokey eye seems quite out of place. A softer plum eye and a deeper tinted lip color helps bridge the gap just right for me. Among the products I have used, MAC Fluidline in Dark Diversion is well past it's toss-away date, and I really don't know a close enough dupe for this. Any suggestions would be awesome! As for the makeup, here's what I used and also an easy how-to:
|Products used on the eyes|
Tarte Clean Slate Eye Primer
Chanel Seduction eyeshadow quad (peach shade and the darker berry shade)
MAC Dark Diversion Fluidline
2. Apply a light peachy beige shade all over the lids with a flat eyeshadow brush (I have used Chanel #25).
3. Apply a deeper berry shade along the outer corner of the eye, keeping the color concentrated along the outer thirds of upper lashline and a bit into the crease. Blend the color softly using a fluffy eyeshadow blending brush (I have used the NARS #15 large dome brush).
5. Using a small smudging/blending brush (have used Chanel #14 contour shadow brush) and some of the dark berry shade used earlier, smudge the liner softly - the line should still be visible but much softer and not so defined.
6. Using whatever is remaining on the smudger brush, run some of the darker color along the outer thirds of the lower lashline. Also use the same dark eyeliner along the waterline. Curl lashes and finish with mascara.
The eyeshadows I used had a bit of shimmer in them which caused some fallout apart from some more flying around while smudging, and I didn't bother with applying concealer until after my eye makeup was done. Clean up the undereye area with makeup wipes or makeup remover, and finish the rest of the makeup. Here's what I used.
