Fall Makeup Tutorial: Smokey & Taupey Fall Eyes feat The Balm

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another tutorial!  I think this one is pretty universal to everyone.  I used a pretty popular palette to create a taupey, smokey eye and nude lip combo.  This is actually a re-do of an old look I featured on this blog and I think it came out even better.  Check it out!
Check out the video!

Here's everything I used in the look!
Everything really revolves around The Balm's NudeTude palette.  I still love it.  It's got a great mix of neutrals to help you pull of a look quickly.  The mattes are insanely pigmented too.  I don't usually rock taupes but I'm glad this palette had some because it forced me out of my warm brown tones box and I really like the color combo.
FACE
Graftobian HD Primer
Tarte Maracuja Foundation in Tan
Laura Gellar Balance and Brighten in Tan
Maybelline Eraser Concealer in Medium
Neutrogena Oil Control Powder in Translucent
Wet N Wild Blush

EYES
NYX Full Coverage Concealer in Light (Brow Highlight)
Velour Lashes
Kiss Eyelash Glue
The Balm Nudetude Palette
Ofra Cosmetics Eye Primer
Milani Liquif'Eye Pencil in Black
Tarte Brow Pencil
Senna Brow Pencil

LIPS
NYX Nude Lip Pencil
MAC Brave New Bronze Lipstick (Limited Edition)


Here is the original look from last Summer:
Here is my recreated version.  As you can see I played up on the eyes a bit more.  I did the first look in a dark room rushing after doing a bride's makeup.  I did however, use the same products.
I'm also using premium lashes - these are Mink lashes by Velour Lashes.  Big difference right?
That's all folks!  If you ever have a request for a tutorial, let me know.  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
