Autumn Vacation at Siesta Key Tutorial

I love how this look turned out, so I’m very glad I did a tutorial with it. I wanted to use Meow Cosmetics Siesta Key, since the color made me gasp out loud. I paired it with several gorgeous gold shades from BftE. Autumn is an amazing BftE color. Together, these two are breathtaking, in my opinion.

Wearing NARS Velvet Gloss Buenos Aires lip pencil on my lips.

How to Achieve the Look:

  1. Prep the eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
  2. Apply BftE Caffe Latte to the upper crease and lower browbone area.
  3. Apply BftE Autumn on the inner 3/4 of the lid.
  4. With an elf C brush, apply Meow Siesta Key to the crease and the outer corner of the lid.
  5. With a fluffy brush, apply BftE Salted Caramel to the upper crease.
  6. Highlight under the eyebrows with BftE Ornamental.
  7. Line the outer lower lash line and outer corner of the upper lash line with Urban Decay 24/7 Perversion liner.
  8. Smudge Siesta Key on top of Perversion liner.
  9. Line the lower waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 Midnight Cowboy liner and highlight at the inner v with Ornamental.
  10. Add mascara and you’re good to go.

Props to you, you have mad talent and such bold style! :-)

      This is gorgeous! I never thought to pair a warm, orangey gold with darker, smokier shades. This look practically glows! Your color combinations are a constant inspiration to me.
