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.

fall makeup tutorial burnt orange

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.

Colourful yet wearable – tutorial

Wearable or natural is my second nature, when it comes to makeup. I usually do very neutral looks.  My makeup is a part of me – not a mask – that you can see clearly. If you get what I mean? But that doesn’t mean, that my makeup should look boring. I actually use different colours in my makeup a lot. There is not a colour, I wouldn’t put on my eye lids.

With this makeup look and tutorial I want to show you, that you can pair different colours together and it can still look very down to earth (but fun!). Don’t be afraid of the brighter colours in your eyeshadow palette – they don’t necessarily have to look that bright on your lids. It’s all about how you prime your eyelids, are you using the eye shadow wet or dry, and how much pressure you use with your brush. In this makeup I used my colours dry without my usual colour-priming (white base), so the colours aren’t as in your face, as they could be.

In this look I’m wearing brown shades as my ‘base colours’ and pops of colours on my lid and lower lashline. Pink and orange look surprisingly nice together, don’t you think?

colour placement eyeshadow

This is what we’re doing today. In this photo you can see colour placements clearly.

  1. Start with a basic eye contour and sketch out the ‘frame’ to your eyeshadow. This is the transition colour and also the crease colour and it’s also kinda the base to this look. Blend it well, so that there isn’t a harsh line where the eyeshadow starts.
  2. Add a deeper brown colour to your outer V. If you don’t know what that means, this photo explains it. Blend that out with the first colour. Then you can just build up those two colours how you wish – leave it natural, or make it darker and more visible.
  3. Tap on the pink colour right in the middle of the lid and blend the edges with tapping motions. What I mean is, take some eyeshadow on your brush, press it to the lid close to the lashline and without taking any more eye shadow use that brush and tap around the edges of the colour. Then line your lower lashline with an orange eyeshadow.
  4. Well, you know how it goes – line your eyes, add mascara and/or lashes and you’re done! Or actually, I almost forgot: you can line your waterline with a white pencil to make your eyes appear bigger and a bit brighter. And then you’re done.


Is it really a selfie, without a hand in there somewhere? Also: I don’t always paint my nails, but when I do I make sure I take photos. My friends always say to me, how my nails are always on point. Yeah they are – in my photos. 😀 #confessionsofabeautyblogger

For this makeup I used my beloved Vice 4 palette, which has been featured here before in this tutorial.
