The perfect eye make-up for the perfect fall night

Before we all hibernate and refuse to go out because of the cold weather, enjoy the last moments of bearable, breezy nights. It’s not freezing yet, so play up the makeup while you can. Let me suggest a good look for these midseason days. This look is actually inspired by Mila Kunis, who has gorgeous eyes, but it also works for both blondes and brunettes.

Neutral colors don’t have to be reserved for daytime; neutrals can easily be applied for a nighttime transformation. Brown is such a good color for when you’re still uneasy about heavy eye makeup. Go slow. Add light brown to the outer corner of your eyes, until you feel comfortable going darker. Sweep the darker shade back and forth on your crease to create depth.

riend. I love using gold eye shadow because it’s so versatile-- it works for any season. Add some gold to the middle part of your lid. I love using the gold colors from the Urban Decay Naked Palette, but any gold eye shadow will do.

Be bold and wear liquid eyeliner, with a winged-out look. It’s my favorite way to

wear eyeliner because it will really gives you that “night” makeup you’re looking for. When I’m going out I prefer liquid eyeliner because it feels heavier and more precise. It can be tough to find a lipstick that’s not too summery or fall-ish, so I suggest a toned down pink lipstick.


You can add silver or gold jewelry to this look as well. Enjoy these nice nights out because we all know it won’t last for long. Winter is coming. If you want to learn to create this look, you can check out the video on my YouTube channel: honeyeyes494.
