Adding autumnal tones to the classic smokey eye
As the cooler months breeze in, it’s time to start adding depth back into your makeup routine. Think rich, earthy tones, a pop of shimmer, flushed cheeks and a glossy nude lip; a look that can easily transition from day to night.
This makeup breakdown draws inspiration from the classic smokey eye to create a softer, warmer makeup look using best-selling #EOHBeauty items, including the Goddess Pencil Nubian Brown, Sacred Earth Palette, Bio Lip Elixir and the Dual Brow Perfect.
Here, we share useful tips to elevate your makeup application skills and perfect this sultry, sophisticated look, using our luxury range of clean, conscious and considered beauty.
Cleanse skin with warm water and the Organic Bamboo Cleaning Kit, gently exfoliating and removing any excess build up before makeup application.
It is important to keep skin nourished and hydrated as we transition into cooler, drier months. Apply a few drops of the Seven Seed Sacred Oil evenly across the face and neck. For a heightened beauty ritual, massage the oil into skin with the White Jade Crystal Gua Sha, up the neck, across the jawline, cheeks, forehead and under the eye area, in an upward and outward motion to relieve tension and increase blood flow.
To create a smooth, even base, while achieving the desired coverage, apply the Skin Tint Serum Foundation using the Vegan Buffing Brush. You can learn more about the benefits of Skin Tint Serum here.
Using the Triple C Concealer, apply under the eyes and eyelids, the high points of the face and any other areas you wish to add extra coverage, blending with the Vegan Concealer Brush. Using a darker shade of concealer, contour the cheekbones, jawline, forehead and nose to add dimension back into the face.
Using the Luminous Highlighter in Dusk Bronze, add radiance to the high points of the face, blending outwards using a finger.
Tip: You can also dust the highlighter lightly across the center of the mouth and cupid's bow to create the appearance of fuller lips.
Re-working the Bio Lipstick in Freya Rose as a blush, apply to the apples and high points of the cheeks, creating a warm, flushed look.
Tip: You can also dab lightly across the nose to give a natural, sun-kissed look.
Contour eyelids with the shade ‘Arc’ from the Winter Solstice Palette, and deepen with the shade ‘Cloud’, using the Vegan Blending Brush. Apply a shimmer of choice across the inner part of the lid, and lightly underneath. For this look we used the shade ‘Axis’ from the same palette.
Deepen and define the eyes with the Goddess Pencil Nubian Brown, applying it across the top and bottom lash line and softly smudging out with the opposite end of the pencil.
Tip: You can also smudge out the liner with the Vegan Angled Brush for more control. Tightline the top and bottom water line to make your eyes pop.
Curl lashes with the Goddess Lash Curler and apply the Goddess Mascara Black evenly across each lash until your desired coating is achieved.
Groom and fill brows with the Dual Brow Perfect. Start by shaping the brows with hair like strokes, followed by brushing upwards and outwards with the brow gel at the opposite end of the pencil.
Line and coat the lips in a nude shade that suits, followed by the Bio Lip Elixir for a glossy, hydrated finish.
