Thanksgiving Makeup Idea: Olive with Pop of Coral

As I was looking on some Pinterest posts, I saw a Thanksgiving wreath that had all these beautiful colors, that truly made me dive into Thanksgiving spirit. Then scrolling through my makeup looks, I found this look, that also combined some of the prettiest colors for Thanksgiving/Fall season, so I decided to share it with you all. I hope it gives you an idea for upcoming holidays. 

Let's get right into the tutorial!


For this tutorial I used Lala's Court Palette by Motives Cosmetics (you can find it here, use code "beautifyandcreatify" for free shipping if you decide to buy). Here are the steps:
1. As usual, I started with priming my lids to make sure that eyeshadow lasts long and doesn't move around during the day. After, I defined the crease using blending brush and light brown eyeshadow. 
2. I applied olive green to my entire lid, except the area close to tear ducts. I left it out for pop color.
3. Add that pop! I added  coral shade to the tear ducts, and then decided to extend it to the waterline. How I made waterline pop? Here's the trick, apply either white or neutral eyeliner on waterline, then set it with the eyeshadow of your choice (coral in this case). 
4. I added some grey to outer V of the eye, as well as outer half of my lower lashline.
5. Blended all the grey with matte brown for smooth transition. 
6. I loved how soft this look turned out, so I decided to stay away from black eyeliner. I used olive liner by Tarte in deep sage as a liner and added some false lashes as well (it is optional, though). Here is better view of the liner:
