Missing Summer FOTD

Hi everybody,

This year, I realize my makeup is veering more toward neutral with smokey eyes throwing in once in a while. Fall is here and I am kinda missing summer. Well, not really. In the Sunshine State, the sun shines approximately 300 days out of a year. Not so bad, right?

I did this simple FOTD using the cutting the crease technique to add drama to my eyes. I also used Viva Glam VI SE to add a pop of color to my lips. This look is simple and it is not as intense as the cutting the crease look I did in the past.

1. Fluffy fan brush
2. EDM kabuki brush
3. MAC 266
4. ELF blending brush

Colors used in this FOTD are numbered

Application chart decoded: brown line: cut the crease with color #1, orange area: blend with color #2, green area: blend with colors #3 and 4, highlight with color #5

Your eyes should look like this after lining both upper and lower lash lines with Teddy eye Kohl and applying mascara

Semi-close eye
Apply foundation, concealer, blush, highlighter, and lipstick to your face and voila, you're done!
Please let me know if you like this new format of FOTD. As I am a visual learner, I find having a chart is better to show where the colors should be. If you feel the same way, please let me know and I will use this method from now on. I feel like the written direction is not as effective as I don't receive so many comments from you guys.
