Autumnal Smokes - Step by Step - Kate Valentine

For my second look I wanted to create a simple but fun beauty make-up with the LaRoc Pro Chocolate Box Palette.

What with Autumn fast approaching (and being my very favourite season!), I wanted to create something dark and smoky but still using some warm, autumnal colours. Check out the step by step below to see how I achieved this look :)

1. I started off by using 'Orange Crisp' in the crease, using a small fluffy brush to pack on colour, but also be able to defuse the edge softly. Step 1 - Autumnal Smokes Eye Shadow - Step by Step - Kate Valentine
2. Next, I used 'Honey Nut' to blend out the first colour up towards the brow, keeping the shape rounded to the eye. Step 2 - Autumnal Smokes Eye Shadow - Step by Step - Kate Valentine
3. After that, I used a flatter brush to pack 'Melted' on to the lid. I also went softly around the edge with 'Fudge' to blend the dark and light colours together. Step 3 - Autumnal Smokes Eye Shadow - Step by Step - Kate Valentine
4. I added a dark purple liner to the waterline and repeated the above steps under the eye, but keeping the colours closer to the lash line by using a pencil brush and smaller blending brush. Step 4 - Autumnal Smokes Eye Shadow - Step by Step - Kate Valentine
5. For lashes, I used Ardell Wispies for volume, and on top of those I added a cut up pair of more dramatic lashes for a more creative and customised effect. Step 5 - Autumnal Smokes Eye Shadow - Step by Step - Kate Valentine
6. To finish the look, I used 'Orange Crisp' again, but this time as a blusher to tie in with the colour theme. I added the 'Toasted Coconut' Highlighter to the high points of my face and in the inner corner of my eye, and popped on some Make-up FX Silver Face Gems for a bit of sparkle!
