Fall is here! That means it's time for some fun bold looks inspired by autumn's beauty. We're going to show you how to create the perfect smokey eye featuring our Certified Organic Quattro Eyeshadow Noisette. This palette absolutely embodies the beauty of fall with its copper, gold, and earthy tones. It's eco-friendly, and made with natural ingredients. The best part is these colors are super pigmented, so a little goes a long way. If you're ready to embrace autumn, give this stellar look a try. You'll have all eyes on you in no time.
Step 1: Highlight Your Eyes
First, using a Medium Eye Shadow brush (#7) start by applying the lightest color on the palette (top left) to the inner corner of your eye and brow bone (just below your eyebrows). This will create a highlight that makes you look more awake. This is very important, considering we'll be working with some dark shades. It helps open your eyes. You can blend it out a little bit into the middle of your eyes as well.
Step 2: Darken the Crease
Next, use your Blending brush (#10) to gently blend out the coppery color on the palette (bottom left) in the crease of your eye. You want to make sure you're blending the color from the end corner of your eye into your crease. Blend it out carefully so it doesn't look too overdone.
Step 3: Add Sparkle
Now it's time to add a bit of sparkle to the look. Take a little bit of the golden color in the palette (top right), and blend it using a Medium Angled brush (#8) in the same way you did with the copper color. This should create a nice, subtle shimmer, not overpower the copper. You could even let a little bit find its way into the middle of your eyes as well. This will brighten up your overall look.
Step 4: Make it Smoky
Now it's time to really heat things up. Take the darkest shade on the palette (bottom right) and apply it to the outer corner of your eyes, and underneath your eyes using a Small Eye Shader brush (#12). Only go halfway to your tear duct. This palette is very pigmented, so you won't need that much on your brush to create a nice smoky look.
Step 5: Wing it Out
Now it's time to create a nice eyeliner wing using our Certified Natural Eye Pencil in brown (or black – in the shade noir). If you'd like to go with a softer look, we recommend choosing brown. However, for an even bolder look, go for the black! It doesn't need to be a huge wing: Just flick it out as soon as you get to the outer corner of your eye. If eyeliner wings aren't your thing, just line the tops of your lids as close to your lash line as possible and stop at the outer corner of your eye. Eyeliner helps make your eyes pop and gives them that extra bit of definition.
Step 6: Add Mascara
To complete the look, use our Certified Organic Mascara Lola Lash Too. This mascara will give your lashes a nice boost in volume and length. It's definitely a must-have for finishing off any smoky eye look. We recommend applying 1 to 2 coats of it to both your upper and lower lashes. If you're looking to tone it down a little, just skip coating your bottom lashes.
Bonus Tip: Lips!
If you're wondering what lipstick you should wear with this look, we recommend pairing it with our Certified Natural Lipstick Pencil in the shade Naturelle. This nude lip will help balance out the boldness of your eyes. It will definitely make your eyes the center of attention, without taking anything away from your lips.
