Alluring Autumnal

This year has flown by so quickly for myself that I can't believe that it's almost Autumn already!

I have a tonne of new makeup waiting to be played with and I'm feeling a little spoilt for choice but seeing as the new season is just around the corner, I was largely inspired by the typical colours that we normally think of when we hear the word 'Autumn'.  

We typically vision the changing colours of the leaves, and for myself, I usually think of the blackberry's that grow during the run-up to the Autumn season.

With these images in my head, I chose warm toned coral and plum shades, along with a rich blue with a purple hue.  

  • Motives by Loren Ridinger Eye Base
  • Coral eyeshadow from the Motives for La La 'Muse Palette' all over lid
  • Plum eyeshadow from the Motives for La La 'Muse Palette' blended into crease
  • Mixutre of bright blue and plum eyeshadows from the Motives for La La 'Muse Palette' along lower lash line
  • Motives by Loren Ridinger 'Onyx' eyeshadow to deepen crease
  • Motives by Loren Ridinger 'Vanilla' eyeshadow to highlight brow bone
  • Motives by Loren Ridinger 'Antique Pink' eyeshadow to highlight around tear duct 
  • Motives by Loren Ridinger Luxe Precision Eye Line to liner eyes
  • Inglot AMC Gel liner in #'77 to line upper waterline
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Covet Waterproof Eyeliner in 'Steel' to line lower waterline
  • Eyeko Fat Brush mascara
  • Eyemimo #NTR06 false lashes

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in 'Caramel' 
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in 'Caramel'
