Don’t miss this » A Burberry-inspired Autumn/Winter makeup look

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

One of the Autumn/Winter promos that I love (loved, loved) this year was the one for Burberry’s Autumn/Winter colour collection. I still have yet to give the brand a try, but the aesthetic is just stunning — clean lines and gorgeous, classic shades.

Here’s a quick, easy look based off their fall face. With a focus on warm, diffuse eyeshadow and soft black liner, the tutorial (see the link below) is a snap, and I’ve swatched a few colour substitutes for below (seeing as I didn’t pick up Burberry Mulberry and Dark Sable Sheer Eyeshadows to do the look with.)

Hope you enjoy the look, and here’s to a great autumn!

Read the full tutorial here on She Said Beauty.

Swatched L-R: Senna Eye Shadow in Sphinx (sheerly), Taupe Glow, Intrigue, and Smolder.

Products used

EYES – colour: Senna Eye Shadow in Sphinx (Matte), Intrigue (Matte), Smolder (Glow), Taupe Glow (Glow).

EYES – basics: MAC Eye Shadow in Blanc Type, Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio in Nude Eyes (taupe shade only), NYX Eye Shadow in Black.

FACE: Smashbox Eye Shadow in Smoke (Matte), Senna Eye Shadow in Sphinx (Matte).

LIPS: Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Colour in Heather Buff, Clarins Rouge Hydra Nude in 01 Hydra Rose.

    You look awesome in this colour palette Rae! I tried so many times to pull this off, but every single time I looked like I got punched in the eyes. :(

    You on the other hand look AMAZING.

  5. Thank you, darling!! It's all in the undereye concealer. (And the brows. Er, and the liner.) Without those, I look like I've been punched in the eyes a few times, too! :p

  6. Thank you, m! I'm really glad to hear you liked the look, and–more importantly–that you can get inspiration from the looks on theNotice :)

  7. Thanks, Natalie!

    so pretty! SO PRETTY! (<– this was originally SAD!@$DFS MARRY ME, RAE)

    I'm the same as Geekz. Those colors will make me look like I was socked in the eye.

    (Maybe it's a skintone thing. Sometimes I feel like my face is less of a colour and more of a… greenish canvas of canvasness.)


  13. Oh, wow, that's some pretty loud makeup desperation.

    The quad itself is from Annabelle; the shadows in it are by Senna. As far as I know, most of them are discontinued (sorry) >.<

  14. Gah, I loved this promo, too. The figgy shade! The neutral browns! Cara looked amazing.

    I love the way she used Gold Trench along the lower lashes along with the kohl – subtle. This and the Siren Red look (probably not the metallic/cropped trench coats that season, but still…) are probably my two favorite Burberry Prorsum makeup looks, I think!
