Fall Tutorial: Last Leaf

The end of autumn is here with all those Winter Holiday collections popping up everywhere! I've never been much of a make-up trend follower but I did enjoy the fall looks very much which is weird since the colors were pretty neutral.

What I loved most from fall are the mahogany brown and reddish plum shades. Something about those colors give me the warm fuzzies. I didn't quite jump into the dark-plum-lips bandwagon though. Here's one last fall tutorial for you and if you've missed out on the previous fall looks, click click: Buttered Plum, Candied Apples, Cult of Cherry: Tempting, Golden Cranberry

So, what's in for the Holidays?

Hmm... I don't see much of a consistency going on there. But I'm totally feeling the glittery golds, glowy skin and taupe smokey eyes!

Read on for the tutorial. It's a pretty simple one.

Items Used:

Garnier UV Protect (Purple)
RMK Creamy Foundation #103 + Moisturizer
Chacott Loose Powder
Everyday Minerals Blush in Walkee Talkee

L'Oreal De Crease
Benefit Creaseless Eyeshadow in Stiletto (Thanks, Plue!)
NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Penny
Sweetscents Pigments in Perfection and Blackstar Green
MAC Pigment in Provence
Indelible Gel Eyeliner in Endangered
Bloop Eyeliner Pencil in Black
Rimmel Glam' Eyes Mascara
Prescriptives Eyebrow Powder

NYX Round Lipstick in Cream

After prepping the lids with L'Oreal De Crease, apply Stiletto up to the crease with a small flat synthetic brush aka lip brush. With an eyeshadow brush, Pat on Penny over the Stiletto base.

Blend the harsh lines with the same eyeshadow brush. Apply Perfection into the crease with a fluffy crease brush. Apply highlight and blend well.

Line the upper lash line with Endangered. Smudge the remaining liner on the brush on 3/4 of the lower lash liner. Using a small brush, smudge Blackstar Green over the Endangered liner on the lower lash line and bring the green into the inner lash line. Finish off with mascara and fill in the brows.

Hi there, i knw this has ntg to do with ur post. But i wanna ask do they sell ELF products anywhere in KL, Malaysia?? How about Sasa? Since Sasa in singapore sell ELF product so i was wondering if KL does. Reply me at

This is a really lovely look!! I love how the green liner brings a contrast to the background colors!! I'll try to do this tomorrow!! :D

and oh, your lashes!! so lush and full!! me wants!!

Connie said...

Grace: Nope, ELF's not sold at retail outlets in Malaysia. It is only available through online orders/sprees. Do look up the member 'sgdrugstore' on
The USD1 products are sold at RM8 per product after conversion and shipping. But it should be higher now that the exchange rate has hiked up.

J: Thanks! Let me know how it turns out! I felt like I've been neglecting my green liner. Lol.
I have to thank Rimmel Glam Eyes for the lashes. I really do love that mascara. And my RMK curler too. Hee hee hee.
