HOW-TO : Subtle Burgundy Eyes

Hi! Today I'm bringing an eye look that I sometimes like to do since I got the Etude House's Play 101 Pencil in 29 -  which is a shimmer burgundy shade. It's my way to do subtle 'colored' eye makeup look for daily look, in the summer I like to change the eyeliner color to navy blue. I planned to do one how-to post when I was wearing blue eyeliner, like, everyday in the summer. I guess I didn't get around to do that. 

Anyway, fall I think is the season when I like to try different makeup looks and using more colors. I think because I usually don't really like makeup shades that came out during spring or summer, while I like everything that came out in autumn!

So, to the tutorial!

(I accidentally deleted the first pictures :( but it's not a big of a deal though.) So the first step is to spread a light brown / taupe color all over the lid, and I came back again with a little darker brown shadow focusing on the down half of the lid. It creates a more depth contour than using just one color for the lid. 


Taking the burgundy eyeliner, I line my waterline, starting from the outer corner to the inner corner. I keep the middle part light, focusing the shade on the outer corner. After that, I take a espresso eyeshadow, layering the burgundy color so that it'll look less obvious and 'bloody'. You can add the burgundy again, which I think I did.


Next, is my signature eyeliner. Seriously, can't get away with no eyeliners! And then some mascara to the lashes, and we're done! It's so easy!

For the lips, I went with a red plum color, but I apply it sheerly. I think it matches the whole look!

What do you think? Gosh I love autumn, it's when I can experience with lots of makeup looks :p

    I've been loving the Burgundy eyeliners for a fall look! To help me look less sickly, I use a nude eyeliner in the waterline to cancel out the redness.

  5. Love love what you did! I've seen this shade from clio before and have avoided it because I really dont want such a reddish color near my eyes. I'm afraid it'd make my eyes looks tired or bloodshot. Love the touch of burgundy on your lips especially!
