Three Smokey Eye Fall Looks with One Palette

Fall is a wonderful time of the year where we get to break out of the bright summer trends and open up to some darker warm colors and looks. I wanted to share 3 awesome eye looks for any skin tone and play with some colors as well. Any of these looks can be a day or night look changed with simply a lip color change! Use a nice nude lip for a day in the office or add a warm burgundy/red or brown lip for a night on the town. These looks are age friendly and fairly simple because it’s all done with ONE palette, how great is that! Some other products are used but can easily be skipped or swapped out for another desired color from the palette. I made sure to list a nice alternative in the steps.

Palette used:

Lorac Pro Palette 1 – Can be purchased at any Ulta, Nordstrom, or Loraccosmetics.com for $42.00 USD.

Look One:

1. Eye shadow primer. I used the Lorac behind the scenes primer that works great with the Lorac pro palette and came with the palette.

2. Transition shade. It should be a nice neutral match to your own skin tone or even a little warmer to go with a warmer eye look like this one. I used "Cream" in the crease applying with a Sephora crease shadow brush #73.

3. I used a mix of "Cream" and "White" under the browbone with the Sephora precision shadow brush #61 and bended into transition shade.

4. Taking the color "Taupe" and I used the same Sephora crease brush in the outer crease and making sure not to go too close to the inner corner only about half way across the eye. Making sure I blend blend blend in a back and forth motion with a Sephora blending brush #71

5.  Using "Garnet" from the Lorac Palette (NARS Persia eye shadow as alternative) with a Real Techniques angled brush and apply it to the outer corner and inner corner of the eye leaving the middle empty; blend this color inwards with Sephora blending brush and reapply shadow as needed till desired color is achieved

6. With the same angled brush you apply "Sable" from the Lorac pro palette and apply to the outer corner of your eye being sure not to overlap the "Garnet" shadow to much and again blend blend blend with the Sephora blending brush

7. Take the color "Nude" on a flat eye shadow brush and pack the color onto the center of the lid which currently does not have color. Gently feather the edges out with the blending brush

8. Lastly take a small Real Techniques brush and apply "Garnet" eye shadow to the entire bottom lash line and smoke out. Apply "Sable" to the outer corner and ensure blends into the top lid

I curled my lashes and applied Benefit "They’re Real Mascara." You can stop here if desired. I then applied Ardell #402 lashes with tweezers and Duo eyelash adhesive in clear white. If applying lashes make sure to wait about 30 seconds for glue to dry and ensure they are turned up so the lashes will look full.

Look Two:

1. Eye shadow primer. I used the Lorac behind the scenes primer.

2. Transition shade, I used "Taupe" in the crease with a Sephora crease shadow brush #73.

3. Take "Mauve" and "Sable" and blend into crease with same crease shadow brush

4. Take "Champagne" with Sephora precision brush and pat all over lid 

5. Take "Espresso" with my Real Techniques angled brush and place in outer corner and blend inwards with Sephora blending brush.

6.  Take "Gold" wit a small Real Techniques brush and place in inner corner of eye and drag under to lower lash line

7.Take same brush and apply "Sable" on lash line and smoke out into the gold color. Take "Espresso" and apply only on outer corner of lash line  and blend into "Sable" and make sure connects to top corner of eye shadow.

8. Lastly take "Cream" and apply onto brow bone for a nice highlight and blend into transition shade used early for a flawless smokey finish.

Again I curled my lashes and applied Benefit They’re Real Mascara. If desired can also add your favorite pair of false lashes, I applied Ardell #105 lashes with tweezers and Duo eyelash adhesive in clear white.

Look Three:

1. Eye shadow primer. I used the Lorac behind the scenes primer.

2. Transition shade, I used "Taupe" in the crease with a Sephora crease shadow brush #73.

3. Take espresso with Real Techniques angled brush and apply to outer corner and blend inwards with blending brush

4. Take "Black" with angled brush and apply to outer corner and blend with blending brush

5. Take MAC Cosmetics Fix+ Spray and spray Sephora precision brush and apply Lorac "Deep Purple or "Gold" (a nice alternative is Makeup Geek’s "Insomnia" pigment all over lid) 

6. Take "Gold" wit a small real techniques brush and place in inner corner of eye and drag under to lower lash line

7. Take Real Techniques small brush and apply "Sable" on lash line and smoke out into. Take "Espresso" and apply only on outer corner of lash line into "Sable" and make sure connects to top corner of eye shadow. Take whatever color used on lid and apply to middle of lash line with same brush.

Again I curled my lashes and applied Benefit They’re Real Mascara. If desired can also add your favorite pair of false lashes, I applied Ardell #405 lashes with tweezers and Duo eyelash adhesive in clear white.

Hey! My friends and family call me Nizzy, I am a self-taught makeup artist, natural hair embracer, and all around frotastic nerd.

I was born and raised in New Jersey never really been around other then New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Florida. I know boring!

I started to care for my curls around May 2013 and practice makeup in April 2014, so I am still a newbie. I hope to help not only woman but men as well to feel empowered and strong enough to really embrace their natural beauty and with it learn to love themselves again. Just like I did.
