I wanted to create a look with these colours because the weather sucks around here, we get loads of rain and I feel like we just shot ourselves from a great warm summer into a dreary autumn. Somehow, in a few days all the trees have lost their leaves and it’s starting to get cold inside!
So autumn colours seemed appropriate. I wanted to combine some of my latest Sugarpill beauties, including one of the colours from the Cold Chemistry palette I got from Enchantra, here’s what it turned out like.
I used Asteria on the inner corner, @#$%! on the outer corner because orange and red are a necessity when you’re going for an autumn look. And, you know… sparkly fun 😀 I also used a bit of Love+ but that got blended in with @#$%! a lot so you can’t really see the difference.
I also really wanted to add some green and because Subterranean from the Cold Chemistry palette is such a dark grey toned green I figured this would work for an autumn look.
After using it at the bottom lashline I also applied it to the eyeliner I had just done.
This look is filled with colour and still I couldn’t resist also adding a dark lip colour. Come on, it’s friggin’ autumn! Dark colours are almost madatory with weather like this. 😉
I have to admit I was dreading the coming of this season a bit. The darkness, the cold, the falling leaves. Blegh!
But with this look I also managed to see the good part of it: the nice smells, the leaves turning all kinds of gorgeous colours, pumpkin season (yay!!), cups of hot tea on the couch when it’s pouring rain outside.
I hope you like this look, I had a lot of fun making it and playing around with these eyeshadow. Which colour do you like most? And what do you like most about autumn?
