Autumn Golden Purple

I told you about my idea to do more autumn inspired looks on my Facebook page and I started searching for pictures right away. I ran into this beauty pretty fast.

Purple autumn leaves with light gold

Isn’t it stunning? As you probably all know I’m a sucker for purple and combined with this light golden colour it’s really stunning to me. So I got out my palettes and tried to recreate something like this on my eyelids. Or actually, eyelid, because I only did one eye. I did make fullface pictures though.

I loved this look so much that I decided not to just upload it on my Facebook page but to also make a blogpost out of it. I really hope you like it too.🙂

I basically got out all my purples and trust me: that’s a LOT! I pretty soon decided not to go overboard with all kinds of different shades. I really wanted it to be rich and dark and… well, autumny. I also thought the colours purple on the inspirational picture were pretty warm and pink toned so I tried to select those colours in my range of purples too.

I used some colours of my favourite brand again: Sugarpill.
Their Poison Plum is pretty much the perfect shade of purple for what I had in mind. Later I also added Hysteric to the middle part of the moving lid to make it a bit lighter. And since it’s a look with some gold in it, I couldn’t resist using a tiny bit of Goldilux too. I mixed Goldilux with a pale gold from my Sleek Safari palette to get a better tone of gold.

I also used my MAC Push The Edge pigment and Urban Decay Rockstar pigments. Those are the darkest purple pigments I have and it really created some depth and tone that I was looking for. It also added the tiny bit of glitter in the outer corner and I liked that too, even though I tried to contain myself. Once I get going with the sparkles I usually tend to go overboard, lol.

As you can see I also added the gold from Goldilux to my waterline to really get that golden accent to sparkle the way it does in the picture that inspired all this. I added some liquid liner but I tried to keep it at a thin line so it wouldn’t go over all the purple goodness.🙂

And like I said: some fullface pictures with just the one eye. I didn’t feel like doing both eyes because I was going to take it all off after this anyway. But I did want to show it with some lipstick. I first thought I’d do a dark lipstick with it but when I got to the lipstick I figured that would be too much. So I used a darker shade of rose I still have from an old range of Catrice lippies called Burgundy.

I just adore this look, what do you think?

The next look in this series might have to wait a couple of days because in the upcoming days I have a lot of fun stuff planned. My love and I are going to the Efteling with both our parents tomorrow and after that we have a lot of visits to friends planned. We’re bascially going to tour through all the Netherlands, lol. We just got home from our vacation in Macedonia and we have some days off work left so we decided to use them to cram full of fun stuff. Yay😀

I do think I’ll do another blogpost about the upcoming autumn looks. Are there any colours you really want to see in this series? Please let me know in the comments or on my Facebook page!

  1. Oh my Gosh, I love that colour combination. These purple shades look sooooo nice with your eye colour. You’re the dark beauty!

    Autumn is one of my favourite seasons, because of the many colours in the nature when the tree leafs change. *-*

  2. This is so beautiful, perfect autumn-y colours❤
