Hello, beauties. Welcome to your new Look Of The Week column! Today it's just me, myself, and I, but please do share your beauty looks in the comments and on social media (#xoLOTW) so I can include your gorgeous faces, hair, and nails (!) next week.

When I saw a few of you request a LOTW in Anne-Marie’s Open Thread, I jumped at the chance to get the party started. My current favorite look is basically a fall explosion on my face. And I'm totally OK with that.

As always, I started by filling my eyebrows in with MAC Pro Longwear Brow Gel in Brunette, applying Napolean Perdis Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation (more on that to come), and priming my lids with E.L.F. Eyelid Primer.

I’m totally hooked on Makeup Geek Eye Shadows, so that’s what I’m using here. I started with Cosmopolitan (a golden peach shade) on the mobile lid and then used Crème Brulee from crease to brow bone.

Next, using a fluffy blending brush and windshield wiper motions, I swept Cocoa Bear in the crease.

To add a little more depth and fall fun, I added Bitten to the outer V of my eyelid and went back in with the fluffy brush (cleaned with a towel) to blend out any harsh lines.

Then I lined my upper lash line with the Jordana Fabuliner Liquid Liner Pen (my HG staple) from inner tear duct to outer edge and added a bit of Bitten to my lower lash line.

With the deeper cranberry shade on my lower lid, I applied Shea Moisture Blush in Annecy Maroon to keep from looking washed out. Finally, I lined and filled in my lips with Jordana Easyliner Retractable Lip Pencil in Cabernet and swiped on Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Lipstick in Divine Wine.

Would you try this look? Make sure to show me your beauty goings on by tagging me and using #xoLOTW on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. You might just be next week's beauty muse!

Now, I’m ready to see what looks you all are rocking this week. Selfie party in the comments section!
