Happy Friday! Tonight I have a new fall tutorial with a smoky warm purple eyeshadow using the Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette. I wanted to do a more “wearable” look you could rock for this fall season. I was really inspired by the purple eyeshadow and warm brown trend I have been seeing around lately and a favorite song.
I got my metal cranked and some pumpkin pie herbal tea for this chilly autumn night. So grab yo drink and let’s get started.
As I mentioned above, the star of the show once again is the Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette. If you get anything from the Sephora sale, get this palette. I think I will be picking up ABH Subculture and the new glow kit… and maybe some of the lip value sets.
I have already primed my eyes and done my brows, as usual, so to start this eye looks off I am first taking the shade Amen from the Saints & Sinners Palette on a large fluffy brush.
Amen is going all over the lid to the brow bone to create a nice canvas for the eyeshadows.
Next up, on a fluffy crease brush, I am going in with Martyr, a matte toffee brown into the crease.
I focused Martyr on the outer portion of the crease and transition area and blended inward so the saturation fades to nothing toward the inner crease area. I also blended the shade outward toward the tail of the brow giving the eye a lifted look.
To bring in a little more warmth, on the same brush I dipped into Devil, a matte pumpkin orange.
I applied Devil with a light hand above the crease and where I placed Martyr and more into the transition area below the brow bone, haloing Martyr.
Then with a flat brush, I took this beautiful pearlescent blackened grape shade called Worship all over the lid.
I packed Worship on the mobile lid and lightly blended the edges into the crease.
I felt like I needed more warmth in the transition and crease so I went back in with the combo of Martyr and Devil and amped up the saturation.
To bring in a little depth, I took a little bit of Crucifix on a pencil brush and patted it into the outer corner of the lid.
I blended Crucifix up toward the tail of the brow a bit to give some lift and slightly into the crease and into Worship. I also tight lined my upper lash line with Nyx Faux Black liner in Blackberry. And apparently added some more orange in there with Devil.
Moving on to the liner, I opted for a black winged liner look using Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper.
I cleaned up the edges, and fall out, made sure everything was blended and went ahead and finished my face makeup up before moving on to the lower lash line.
On the lower lash line, I keep things warm and soft with a combination of Martyr and Devil softly blended from the outer corner to inner, keeping the inner corner light. Then popping on an inner corner highlight. I used a champagne-toned highlighter for this, I believe it was the Wet N Wild Gold Bar. I blended the highlight over into the Martyr and Devil combo.
Finishing off the eye, I applied a couple coats of L’Oreal Lash Paradise after curling my lashes and we’re done!
For the lips, I chose a warm peachy shade from Nyx Liquid Suede called Crushed. It was a bit deeper in person.
The Finished Look
I paired this eye and lip combo with a peachy blush to tie into the warm theme and a the same champagne highlighter I used on the eyes.
Pretty short and sweet tutorial today. I think I will wear this look for Thanksgiving this year. By the way, the title of this look was inspired by a Moonspell song. Listen here:
Music is one of my biggest inspirations for makeup looks, just about all my looks have a song they are inspired by, be it the words or the melody, it helps me come up with ideas whether it’s makeup, drawing or painting, music is the muse.
