Pumpkin Spice Smokey Eye Look – No Starbucks Were Harmed in this Creation.

It’s officially autumn which not only means that the leaves have started falling off the trees, the nights are drawing in and scarves are making a more regular appearance in your outfits, but that Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is back (my favourite autumn drink). Yay!!
Now in celebration I decided to create a warm orange brown smokey eye with very simplistic bronzed skin, and what better palette to mostly use than the Morphe 35K (the K stands for Koffee) alongside the Morphe single eyeshadow in Spice. I feel like it’s all just meant to be.
Read below for instructions and products which I used.
What’s your favourite Starbucks drink in the autumn?

Base
B. Youthful Anti-Ageing Foundation in Honey (£3, Superdrug)
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 20 (£5.99, Boots)
Both foundation and concealer applied with Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (£5.99, Boots)
L.A. Girl PRO. face powder in Creamy Natural all over the face and Toffee as a bronzer/natural warmth around the perimeters of the face (£6, Beauty Bay)

Brows
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown (£15.50, Beauty Bay)
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Medium Brown (£15, Beauty Bay)
Using Brow Brush from Zoeva classic eye set – see eyes section.

Eyes
MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre (£16, MAC Cosmetics), applied all over eye and upto brow bone with fingers.
Morphe 35K Palette (£21, Beauty Bay)
First using the icy white shade [1] all over the paint pot to set it into place using biggest eye brush from the Morphe Brushes 12 piece set (£12.50, Beauty Bay). Then using the same brush I took the two lightest taupe shades [2/3] and worked it into the crease upto the brow bone to create a transition.
Then from a Zoeva 96 palette, which unfortunately is no longer available, I took a neon orange shade and also worked this into the crease where I had placed the other two colours using the soft definer brush from the Zoeva Classic Eye Set (£38, Beauty Bay).
Using a small flat eye brush from the Morphe 12 piece set I then took the single Morphe eyeshadow Spice (£2.35, Cocktail Cosmetics) and pressed the colour all over the moving lid until I had the desired effect.
I then took a warm brown from the Morphe 35k [4] mixed with a red-brown [5] and used this with the same flat brush to softly line my eyes both on top and underneath.
Finally taking the Zoeva soft definer brush once more, I took more of the single Spice shade to further blow out the undereye.

Face
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Give Me Sun as a bronzer (£24, MAC Cosmetics)
Applied using powder brush from Morphe Brush 12 piece set (£12.50, Beauty Bay).
Zoeva Pink Spectrum Blush palette using the shade pk010 (£15, Beauty Bay)
Applied with Real Techniques Blush Brush (£9.99, Boots).
