Burgundy Eyes | Autumn Edition

This Autumn, I have been all over simplicity and layering, which the two products I use, portray beautifully! I tend to only have about 10-15 minutes in the monring to do all my makeup, so anything quick and efficient is a perfect combo for me!
I have a few shades of the Maybelline Colour Tattoos, which are a pigmented creamy base product. The latest addition to the collection is Pomegranate Electric, a deep pomegranate/burgundy shade. The beauty of these cream based products, is that they are quick to apply. Either warm the product up with your fingers, and blend into the eye, or you can use a flat synthetic brush, which is my favourite of the two. I swipe this across my eye, and blend the edges with my finger. Quick and easy! These products are very forgiving, which is great for those rushed, dark autumnal mornings! Finally, I pat on a little Stila Pigalle. This sets and deepens that burgundy tone. You could use literally any similar shade you have for this step. I pair this look with cat eyeliner, my ultimate go to eyeliner.
This look is so quick to create, it barely needs a blog post, but I wanted to show some products that can create a vampy look, if like me, you're too afraid to pull off a dark lip!
