Fall Makeup | Oxblood Lip + Copper Eye






I (and every other makeup wearer on the planet) adore a smoky eye.  In fact, I'm pretty sure I love smoky eyes more than a lot of other people simply because it's the only type of eye look that'll show up on my flat, hooded eyelids.

For anyone who has eyes lids like mine, you know that you can keep putting on the eye shadow only to have it disappear immediately as soon as you open your eyes.  It can be frustrating, but it also means I get to wear more makeup. Win?

On Tod, I'll be showing you one of my favourite fall looks -- a coppery, red-toned smoky eye.  I never knew how much I could love this type of colour on me; there's definitely a risk that this could end up looking like a bruise.  That said, with the right products and good shadow placement, anyone can wear this look.

HOODED EYE TIP: Keep your eyes open as you apply the eye shadow, so you can judge how far up your lid to place the colour.

  1. Beautiful beautiful look!!! I usually avoid anything remotely reddish. Copper isn't my best friend, either. Tod wears it so well though! The LIPSTICK is ammmmaaazing!

  2. I am in love with reddish/copper eye looks right now. If you 'weigh' it down enough with that smokey element, it really ups the contrast and stops you from looking like you're suffering from chronic allergies. You did a beautiful job balancing everything here! Have you seen the new Lime Crime Venus palette? It has some gorgeous rusty brown shades...I am seriously tempted.
