Fall Pumpkin Spice Eyeshadow Tutorial with Too Faced Natural Matte Palette

I’m not the biggest fan of fall or pumpkin spice but I am a fan of this warm glowy eyeshadow look created with the Too Faced Natural Matte Palette*.

Step 1: Apply eyelid primer (my fave for smoothing crepey lids is Tarte Clean Slate 360 Creaseless 12 Hour Smoothing Primer*) all over the lid from lashes to brows with fingers and let set.

Step 2: Using a Sonia Kashuk domed crease brush*, pat “Heaven” onto the moveable part of the lid (below the crease), and swipe under brow bone to create a brow highlight.

Step 3: Using an IT Cosmetics crease brush*, place “Honey Butter” above the crease from the outer corner of the brew to the inner corner of the brow in a straight line (this helps to disguise the sagging hood by making the puffy part visually recede).

Step 4: Using a Beauty Junkees Pro Pencil Brush*, apply “Chocolate Cookie” to the outer 1/3 of the eyelid from lashes to just above the crease in a sideways “V” shape.

Step 5: Using an IT Cosmetics Precision Shadow brush*, pat “Nudie” onto the center of the eyelid.

Step 6: Blend the shadows together to create seamless gradations of color using a clean crease blending brush like the Beauty Junkees Pro Blending Brush*.

Step 7: Using the small pencil brush again, place “Sexpresso” along the lash line at the outer 1/3 of the eyelid, then angle the brush up toward the outer corner of the eyebrow and in at the crease to darken the outer “V”.

Repeat step 3 if needed to punch up the “pumpkin spice” vibe.

Step 10: Using the small pencil brush again, apply “Nudie” to the lower lash line and connect it up into the upper shadow at the outer corner creating a soft wing.

Step 10: Dip the Beauty Junkees Angled Push brush* into water, tap on a tissue to remove excess water, then tap into “Sexpresso” to create eyeliner. Push the brush against the upper lashes from inner to outer corner, and drawing the line out and up toward the brow to create a wing (you can lift your brow up with the other hand if needed).

Step 11: Remove any fall-out with a soft brush or scotch tape.

Step 12: Apply NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker* liquid liner to upper lash line by pressing the tip of the liner pen to the lash line. You don’t have to use liquid liner if you’re happy with the push brush liner, but I love how the dark black punches up the soft warm shadows!

Step 12: Apply 2 coats of Bobbi Brown No Smudge mascara* to upper and lower lashes.

Step 13: Use an old spoolie brush to gently lift, curl, and separate lashes before the mascara dries completely.

It’s true, that was a pretty complicated eyeshadow tutorial but the results are worth the effort!
