MOTD: Pumpkin Spice

Kansas weather seems to be really holding on to that warmer weather (much to my chagrin), so I’ve been playing with a lot of my favorite fall colors in the hopes that the temperature will suddenly lower to meet the theme of my makeup. So far it’s not working. *shrugs* Anyways, I love warm gold and orange tones and that is exactly what inspired this look for today!

Usually I start with my lid color, but this time I wanted to start with my transition shade so that all of the colors would blend a little more seamlessly. For this particular look I used two different warm orange tones in my transition (Makeup Geek Chickadee and Burnt Orange from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette).


Once I was satisfied with the amount of color there I added a warm gold shadow (MAC Amber Lights) all over the lid with a flat shadow brush to really pack on the color.


To add more depth to the crease I applied a matte deep orange shade (Realgar from the ABH Modern Ren. palette) concentrating more of the color on the outer third of the crease and lid. I really wanted that outer corner to have a little more depth so I packed on a bit of a matte deep red shade on the outer third of my lid as well (Red Ochre from the ABH palette).motd-pumpkin-spice-3

The next step to really defining the eyes was a black cat eye applied with a small angled liner brush (Sigma E06) and black gel liner. I applied this gel liner to the lower lash line and then smudged it out with the same dark orange shade I used in the crease.motd-pumpkin-spice-4

After I applied mascara and filled in my brows, I finished the look off with a warm, orange-leaning blush (Colour Pop Super Shock Cheek in Quarters) and a brownish lip (Maybelline Touch of Spice).


Do you long warm orange tones in makeup? Let me know in the comments below!

Love and hugs,

  1. Love this! I have a coppery orange pigment from MAC I shared with a friend (why I don’t have the name), and I love it. I have find fall to be the perfect time to wear all of these colors of pigments. I try to find fun ways to blend them so all my eye looks don’t look the same, but the emphasis is always on the sparkle anyways!
