La Perla took a key focus on burgundy shades in their New York fashion show, using a range of shades which would be perfect for autumn. The looks are also so easy to recreate on a budget, and whilst La Perla kept colour either on the eyes or lips, I’m going to show you a look which incorporates both and won’t break the bank either.
First, to create a flawless base I used L’Oreal’s Infallible Matte Foundation, followed by LA Girl’s Pro Concealer underneath the eyes to brighten that area. I then set underneath my eyes and the rest of my face using Rimmel’s Stay Matte Powder. After that I filled in my eyebrows, defining them a bit more than usual using NYX’s Tame & Frame eyebrow gel and an angled brush.
Then I made a start on the eyeshadow, applying the shade ‘Love Letter’ from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette through the crease of my eye. I started with a bit of the product and then built the colour up, always making sure it was blended properly.
After this step I picked up the Morphe 35F palette and used one of the vibrant glittery purple shades all over the lid, adding more of the product on top to make it even more intense. I then applied some layers of mascara using Maybelline’s Lash Sensational.
I then applied some bronzer to my cheeks to achieve the chiselled cheekbones that the model on the photo has, and I just used Rimmel’s Natural bronzer for this with an angled brush, then I put some highlighter on top using MAC’s Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle. I also applied some Eyelure 100 lashes to make my lashes as long as the model’s. This is my recreation of the first look of the show, using nothing on the lips to keep all the focus on the eyes.
Here’s the final look incorporating a burgundy lip too, here I used MAC’s Rebel but NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen would also be very similar. A really simple and affordable look that would be absolutely perfect for autumn!
