Fall makeup tutorial using Vice 4 palette

Fall makeup tutorial coming your way!

I’ve been using my Vice 4 palette a lot lately and I realized it’s quite the palette for fall and winter. In this burnt orange smokey eye look I used Bitter, Delete, Flame and Deadbeat from the palette. The star of the show is definitely Flame, that beautiful shimmery orange color, which I used all over the lid.

For once, I decided that more is more. So this look ended up quite dark and dramatic. But I kinda love it. If you want to tone this look down, skip the black eyeshadow and do a thinner liner.

  1. Start by drawing a straight line from your lower lashline all the way to your crease area with ‘Bitter’. Create the shape for your eyeshadow with this color. Once you’re done, blend longer than you’d like. This look is supposed to be smokey, so don’t worry about blending the orange color too far or too low on your lower lashline.
  2. Darken the outer corner of your eye with ‘Delete’. Blend well.
  3. Add ‘Flame’ all over your lid. Pat it on to get the best pigment.
  4. Line your eyes with a black pencil. Line your lower lashline as well, and connect the liner in the outer corner. Blend the pencil with a small brush and make it nice and soft. I only brought the pencil about 1/3 of my lower lashline, and then blended the color, so it looks nice and soft.
  5. Add ‘Deadbeat’ right where you lined your eyes and blend it to make it even softer and so that the colors blend seamlessly together.
  6. Add some inner corner highlight (I used MAC’s Soft&Gentle). Then apply mascara and possibly some lashes. Done!

I could have added bigger lashes (those would suit this look), but I just wan’t mentally prepared for that fight. Lightweight lashes are easier to apply! I like Eylure’s lashes.

P.S. I’ve been finding more and more dark brown hairs in my hair and I’m realizing my hair is.. quite brunette actually? I’ve been blonde my whole life (not counting the hair disasters with purple, orange or green hair). What’s frightening, is that my mom used to be blonde, but her hair got dark brown as she got older. #Firstworldproblems I know, but I think it’s also fascinating how your looks and coloring can change. Growing out your own hair color can bring out surprises.

How to: Makeup for deep set & hooded eyes

hooded and deep set eyes makeup

Applying eyeshadow can be tricky, because we all have different eye shapes. My eye shape is a mixture of hooded eyes and deep set eyes. I’ve definitely struggled with eyeshadows, but through fail and error, I’ve learned some important things. When you’re working with hooded or deep set eyes, it’s all about making your eyes appear more open and balancing the area between your brows and your eyes.

Hooded & deep set makeup tips

hooded eye

Here you can see my eye shape. My eyes are a bit hooded, which you can see when I look straight and don’t lift my eyebrow at all. With hooded eyes the skin droops over the crease causing the lid to appear smaller. My lids also droop in the outer corner, making cat eyeliners impossible. My eyes are also deep set, which means my eyes are deeper into my skull making the brow bone more prominent.

Hooded eyes and deep set eyes are very similar, because in both cases you don’t have that much visible lid space. Your brow bone and the hooded lid are what’s drawing in the attention and your eyes can appear ‘sunken’. And gorgeous. But you knew that, right?

How to contour hooded and deep set eyes?

how to do eyeshadow for hooded eyes

When you’re applying eyeshadow on deep set or hooded eyes, you’re always bringing the color way above your natural crease. Here you can see my natural crease – and where I actually contour my eye. I think of that as my “contour area” or “crease”, even though my natural crease is way lower.

When you’re doing your makeup, make sure you can see some eyeshadow, when your eye is open and relaxed. Other than that, you can choose how high you want to bring the color. I always bring my color right where the natural shadow occurs under my brow bone (more on it on this post about my ultimate makeup trick!).

An open contour.

With my eye shape this is where I should contour. It’s definitely above the crease. A neutral matte shade balances the eye when it’s brought here. It’s almost, like I’m faking my crease and imagining it’s somewhere this high.

An open contour is quick and easy to do and with a more neutral shade, it looks quite natural. It’s almost like a shadow floating on your lids. Except it contours your eyes and does them wonders.

Whenever I’m doing my makeup I always open my eyes and see how it looks that way. I even apply the shadow eyes open to get it just right.

A closed contour/banana contour.

This is a very basic eyeshadow style – contouring the eye in a banana shape. This compliments all eye shapes. The only difference is, in how high you bring the color (obviously with hooded or deep set eyes you bring it above your natural crease).

This is exactly the same as above except the color is brought in the outer corner as well. This makes the eye appear wider and if you bring it even further you can do a cat eye.

This is my eyeshadow base, almost always. After I’ve done this banana contour on my eye, I can just ‘fill in’ the blank space with whatever colors I want.

On to the tutorial!
The base for this eye makeup is that banana contour. That is the highest I bring any color. I apply other colors inside that contour or on top of it.

  1. Prime your lids and set the primer, so that it’s not sticky.
  2. Start to contour your eyes using first lighter and then darker colors. I used first ‘Limit’ and then ‘Nooner’. I did a banana-shaped contour as the base for my eyeshadow. I also brought ‘Nooner’ on my lower lashline.
  3. Add a darker color in the outer part of your eye and slightly all over your contour area. Almost like in a banana contour way, but don’t bring it that high, leave some ‘Nooner’ to show on the edges. I applied just a touch of it on my lower lashline as well.
  4. Fill in the blank lid space with a lighter color. I used ‘Liar’ and ‘Factory’ mixed.
  5. Add your inner corner highlight ‘Strange’, line your eyes and add mascara.
