Fall Makeup Tutorial

Fall is almost over I heard! How I miss those beautiful leaves turning yellow, orange, and red! Anyways, since I’ve been reminiscing about Fall, I decided to do a Fall Makeup Tutorial, inspired by the beautiful maple leaves that turn red during the season. I’ve done a review on the lipstick that I’ll be wearing for this tutorial too! You guys should check Revlon Black Cherry out if you are looking for a dark lipstick for this Fall/Winter season.

I usually don’t do bold lips and eyes at the same time like on this post, but I like to break the rules some times, so hey why not?! Anyways, enough with the chit-chat, let’s get on the tutorial!

My eyelids are prepped using Urban Decay Primer Potion.


1. I applied MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Perky all over the eyelid.

2. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I applied The Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude Matt Rosen on the inner and outer third of my eyelid.

3. I applied Kat Von D Esperanza Placebo just slightly above my crease as the transition color.

4. On the crease, I used a small brush and applied The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hung.

5. I applied MAC Artistic License eyeshadow on the eyelid using a flat eyeshadow brush.

6. I lined my upper lash line using Shu Uemura Calligraphy Ink eyeliner, and created a winged liner. I also added MAC Carbon on the outer and inner third of my eyelid, and on my crease. I decided to add MAC Carbon to add extra intensity and depth.

7. I applied MAC Carbon lightly along my lower lash line.

8. I lined my waterline using L’oreal Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner.

9. My brows are filled using Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe and Brunette. My falsies are Gwiyomi false eyelashes no. 3

Product of the Week: Revlon Black Cherry

As you might have seen in my previous post and twitter, I have been raving about a specific lipstick called Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry (477). I do like this lipstick a lot!

What is Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick?


Infused with mega-moisturizers to seal in color and softness. Find your lip color amongst a dazzling array of 82 shade in 4 fabulous finishes of Matte, Pearl, Crème and Shine.

Revlon USA, 2013

I actually owned several shades from this series, but the one that’s making an appearance today is one of my favorite fall lipstick – Black Cherry. It is a nice, rich, deep burgundy shade. The finish is Creme.

I love this shade, it works really well for everyone. If you have fair to light skintone, you might find this shade to be a little bit too dark. However, you can modify it by applying it as a stain, or mix it with a clear lip balm to add color into your lips. This will look really great for medium to dark skintone.

I’ve worn this lipstick with lipliner underneath it for a good 3-hour before lunch. After lunch, I had to re-apply it slightly. The lipstick seems to last longerr even after dinner when I wore it with the MUFE Aqua Lip Liner. If you want to see how I apply my lipsticks, please check my previous post.

I bought this lipstick back when I was in Canada. I bought it at Rexall when it was on sale. I believe it was only around cad$ 5-ish. I’m not sure how much it is in Indonesia.

revlon black cherry review


  • Very rich, deep burgundy shade that works well for every skin tone.
  • Moisturizing on the lips, doesn’t feel dry.
  • Creamy finish, with a satin feel.
  • Can be layered – use it sheer as lip stain, or apply it with brush for a full-on look.
  • Affordable.


  • Lipstick might not last long, depending on the lip liner you use underneath.
  • Might have to layer it several times to get the right intensity.
  • Will stick to dry skin.
