Just to put it out there: I don’t believe in strictly following a seasonal color scheme or trends. I do believe in wearing whatever you enjoy, no matter if it is plum lips in spring or vibrant green in winter.
That bold disclaimer out of the way, I do realize that my makeup changes with the seasons. I guess the reasons are many. For one I am easily influenced, so when I see lots of dark lips and smokey eyes, I start doing, you guessed it, dark lips and smokey eyes. I am a victim of social media.
And second, I get bored quickly. So after wearing the same, or at least a similar look for a few weeks, I want change. And start experimenting again, reinventing myself through my everyday face.
Yes, makeup can be so deep…
But without further ado, here is the video for your entertainment.

Quick and easy, yet smokey enough to satisfy my autumnal makeup needs. And with a nod to red, which was big that season. What is not to love?
But I tell you something: Shortly after filming this tutorial, boredom did strike again. And while I sit here, happily typing away, I am wearing an entirely different look. One that may make an appearance here maybe next month? We will see.
