Fall Beauty: Smokey Eyes For Now & Later

When it comes to makeup, you’ll almost always see me with winged lined eyes. It’s easy, ultra flattering on my eye shape and works with just about everything in my closet. But every now and then I find myself wanting something new and looking to the fall 2015 runways for inspiration and I found it: perfectly blended smoky eyes paired with mauve hues. Light enough for everyday wear and easily layered for a night on the town.

So, for this month’s Target Beauty post I’m transitioning my makeup from summer to fall with subtle touches of color. Using exclusively PIXI products, I’m creating two looks: one for now and one for later.

For the first look I wanted something feasible for the day but, still had the pop of color that I was loving from the fall 2015 beauty reports. I went for a light, smoky eye using the first two colors from Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Plum Quartz. You start with the Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal in Light Glow. The moisturizer in the tube squeezes out to provide buildable coverage, and then you can pop open the cap to use the full coverage concealer sitting inside. 
After blending, I pulled out the Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette and gave my lids a good swipe from the top color (#1), blended, and applied another swipe. Next, in the crease, I built up definition with the second color (#2) and a slightly deeper purple (#5), lightly blending in between applications. Finishing the look off with two coats of Pixi Lash Booster Mascara and a swipe of Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Natural Rose on my lips.

For later, I built up my smokey look with deeper hues from the Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Plum Quartz (#1, #2 , #3 & #5 ) and with a precision brush dipped in water, lined my eyes with #6.  Applying 2-3 coats of Pixi Lash Booster Mascara for bold lashes and a swipe of Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Natural Rose on my lips  and apples of my cheeks, {lip balms are always great for double usage!}  to complete the look.
Voila! Fall ready makeup looks for now and later.
