A Cool (Toned) Makeup Look

As it gets ever closer to Autumn (no, I don’t want to admit we’re there just yet), all I can think about is cool tones, natural skin and blushed cheeks – like they’ve been caught out in the cold.

To fulfil my need to have all these aspects in my makeup, whilst keeping it not quite full on Autumn, I created this gorgeous look.

The warmer tones of the eyes, mixed with the faux freckles and cool toned lips really scream my ‘mood’ – if you know what I’m saying. There’s also nothing I love more than mixing two lipsticks together to create the perfect shade for my look – I’ve been doing it a lot lately. If you’d like a post about my favourite lip combos, please let me know and I’ll be happy to get them across to you (although it might mean you’ll be wanting to buy two lipsticks rather than one, to create the dreamy colours I create – sorry about that).

So without further ado, here’s the look and how I created it…
