Red Fall Makeup

What is the color of makeup that screams fall to you? I would say rich red. Especially red eye shadows are my favorite shades to wear in the fall. Almost every year I do at least one red eye shadow look. It seems like this year, red is also popular and I've seen a lot of beauty gurus use it in their makeup tutorials. Here's my version of a soft redish inspired fall makeup look. 

I always start my eye makeup with eye primer and a bone colored matte shade all over the lid. Then I added light warm matte brown in the crease. I deepened it with a red based medium matte brown. For the lid I chose a rich cranberry red shimmery shade.

Around the lower lash line I used the same shades. For eye liner I went with a red based medium brown shade. It's a bit shimmery. 

Because the looks is so basic and fairly light, I decided to bring out eyes a bit more by adding a natural looking false eye lashes. 

I moisturized my lips with a brown tinted lip balm to make them look nourished. Then I used brick orange brown lipstick all over the lip. I also added a cool toned darker red shade in the inner corners of the lips to create almost a bit of an ombre effect. I feel like mixing more shades of lipsticks gives your lips more dimension. 

For the rest of my face I used foundation, concealer and powder. I also lightly bronzed up my skin with a bronzer and added a brownish peach blush shade. For the highlight I used a very light peach based shade that has a cool reflection. 

Obviously I love this kind of warm makeup look. Peaches, reds and browns are probably my favorite makeup colors. Red eyeshadow can sometimes seem intimidating to most people. I believe that it's one of the sexiest and sultriest eyeshadow shades. You can't go wrong with it, if you pair it with neutral brown. I'd love to know what are some of your favorite fall eyeshadow shades. Are you a more cooler or warmer type?
