Update and my First Makeup Look Post!

Hey everyone! So I just wanted to do a quick update and let you know that the reason I haven't been posting for the last few days is because I'm on vacation on New Mexico! The hotel we're at finally has internet so hopefully I can a get few posts in but when I get back I'll also be telling you guys all about my trip and what I did. But the main part of this post is to show you guys a look I created that I think is a good look for a fall night (or day if you want to tone it down or you like going dramatic during the day). I just wanna note that my camera picked up a lot more shine and glitter as opposed to the deepness of the look, so if you get a chance to try it out it will look more deep than it appears. So I hope you like it :) 

Start with a bare eye and prime your lid and
 lower lashline so your color lasts 

Apply a lavender (shimmery or matte) cream
shadow all over the lid as a base

With a shader brush, mix a light-medium plum
with a medium beige color and place it all over
your lid

With a crease brush run a dark plum along the
crease and with a pencil brush sweep the same
color along the lower lash line

With a crease brush place a deep brown
along the outer-v of your eye and with
a blending brush blend the colors well
but be careful not to over-blend

With a brown eyeliner pencil, line along your 
upper lash line and waterline. Then put on a few
coats of brown mascara (black is fine if you don't have) 
Note: the reason I chose browns is because it keeps the look warmer and more "fall-ish" to me but black is fine as well 

Use a plum blush on your cheeks and a nude gloss
and/or lipstick on your lips to complete
the look!
