Hello Autumn. MAC Rebel and Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 1 in action.

Happy Tuesday my Lovelies. Weather outside is truly remainding me of Autumn so I thought, it's time to share this makeup look I created recently. Deep browns, pomegranate and golds mixed together topped up by MAC Rebel on the lips. 

I like Autumn. Gold leaves, cute jackets, autumn wardrobe. I'm all for it. Ability to wear MAC Rebel daily? Yes please. I find that autumn colours suit me well, with my pale blue/grey eyes anything so deep makes them pop beautifully. This look isn't perfect, it's messy. I saw messy brows on catwalks everywhere and here you have them too. It's me re-discovering grunge in a way, making sure everything is just a step away from perfect. My lips, my brows, my eyes. Base isn't full cover either, allowing my skin to show. I really hope you like it. As usual I appreciate your feedback so please let me know what you think in the comments below :)

As usual I started with base and I applied Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue to cover the redness. It has minimum coverage but it makes my skin look really radiant and I like it. I skipped concealer. I wanted to show a little darkness under the eye. Autumn mixed with heroin chic. I set the base with a little of MUA's Prime & Correct Powder. I tried to use a lot of budget brushes in this look. I wanted to stay away from my usual Zoeva/Real Techniques/Beauty Blender mix. I applied my base with my fingers and used Wilko's Powder Brush (RPR £4) to set it with powder. I used a little of Makeup Revolution Matte Blush in Nude to finish off my face.

My favourite part was working on the eyes. I wanted it to be a mixture of heroin chic/autumn/catwalk style makeup. I started with a primer and used Maybelline Color Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate as base. I love this colour for autumn and if you have pale blue/grey/green eyes, this one alone will make it pop. I applied it to the mobile lid and blended it out above the crease. I then went in to Iconic Pro palette which is a perfect one for this time of year. I used Drama - medium matte brown shade to blend just above the crease (for those lucky ones without sad eyes, you want to blend this in the crease instead). I then used Afflicted deep matte brown with a  hint of burgundy to deepen the "crease" and the outer corner. I wanted shine so I used Stage - deep shimmer brown with burgundy on the middle of the mobile lid to accentuate the look. I then used Getter - deep gold with a  bit of antique feel to it, to blend Stage out towards the inner corner. I finished off the inner corner with a Dawn and Breathe. I replicated all of the above at the bottom lid with an exception of the inner corner that I left matte and white using Ghost shade from the palette. I finished my eyelashes with two coats of my Clinique High Impact Mascara. I used an old Lancome Mascara wand to brush out my brows in different directions and filled them in ever so slightly with Frisk shade from Naked 2 Basics palette. This whole look was created using Makeup Revolution eye brushes with a little help of one Zoeva brush to blend out a matte white shade to clean it up a little bit.

I wanted my lips to look a little undone so I didn't use a lip liner to fill them in. I used MAC Rebel directly from a tub and made sure the insights of my lips are not fully filled in. It gives this beautiful colour the finish I wanted. Little grunge, little heroin chic.

I hope you like my newest invention. Please let me know in the comments below what are your favourite autumn products. This look is little undone, little me in every way. 

Thank you for reading.

Let's be friends:



  1. Gorgeous look! I really love the eyes! And Rebel looks beautiful on you ;) xx

  2. Thank you so much. I wanted this look to be about both eyes and lips with a little undone effect to it. I think it worked :)

  3. I love this look! I don't like it for things to be overly perfect. You know, sculpted brows, heavy contour, cut crease and perfectly lined lips are not really my thing... The look you created is my kind of perfect!


    1. My kind of girl. I always thrive for perfection and only recently I started looking at my passion with a little distance. I found through that, we are all different people and I should stop trying to be perfect for the sake of everyone else doing that. I now prefer more natural looking Brows or eyelashes. I like when something is a little undone because it means it's not finished. And I'm not finished. I have plenty more to say yet :)

  4. I love it, you look so pretty! Burgundy and plum shades are definitely my favourites. :)

    1. Oh thank you beauty. I am enjoying playing with deeper tones right now :) And it's becoming an obsession :)

  5. Looking beautiful with those vampy lips, Dorota! Deep berry lips are my favourite for Autumn :) x
