Flying into Fall: Green & Plum makeup tutorial!

Published September 15, 2012 by majormakeupmadness

Hey guys,

So today I felt like doing a tutorial to do with fall, but I didnt want to do your average ‘neutral eyes and dark red lips’ .  So I started playing around with colour and found that greens, plums and golds complement eachother really well, and as a bonus those colours are on trend!

Id also like to thank: for nominating me for the ‘one lovely blog award’

and for nominating me for the ‘Liebster award’

It really made me smile, so thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Now with the tutorial


1) As im using bright colours, I like to use a white base to make the colours as bright as they can be. I use a avon colortrend eyeliner in white, and apply it on my lid and blend. Image

2) I then apply an olive green near my lashline, with this tutorial I start with the darkest colour to lightest colour. Im using Accessorise illusion eyeshadow in Sage.Image

3) I then apply a medium green to my lid (not going over the olive green we applied previously). I use Maybellines eye studio duo in Green Glam.Image

4) I then thought it would be nice to add a really warm colour to the eyes as its so god damn cold in England.  I apply a gold to the crease, so it almost looks like the green is fading out to a gold. I use Half-baked by urban decay. Image

5) I then add the same gold to my inner corners, and apply a matte highlight to my brow bone. I use MUA eyeshadow in shade 16. I then apply a black gel liner to my top lashline. I use Elf’s cream eyeliner in Black. Image

6) I then apply Rimmels scandel eyes show off mascara to my lashes. Image


1) Starting with moisturised lips, I apply a mauve lipstick with a gold undertone (to complement the eyes). I use avons colortrend kiss lipstick in Be Mine. Image


1) I bronze and contour my face with the bourjois bronzer in shade 52.

2) I apply my sleek blush in Pomegranate. ImageImage

I hope you liked the look! .

Thanks for watching!!! You guys are amazing!
