Falling for these colours….

Considering this is what I see every morning when I look outside (the Niagara Escarpment), or into my closet, really, it was just a matter of time before I would try to recreate it. As you’ve already heard me affectionately describe my love of autumn colours here on nails, I figured this time I’d adapt it to eyes…

I tried to incorporate the colours of the leaves, without making it look like it belongs at a fall parade. πŸ™‚
As always, a good base is a must. I used MAC Painterly paint pot to prime. In order to get a nice wash of a warm brown across my lid, I used a fluffy dome brush to apply NYX in Rust. Also using a similar brush, but smaller, I applied NYX Walnut Bronze in the crease. Incorporating the last colour in that NYX trio, I applied Golden in the inner corner, using a small stiff eyeshadow brush. Along both lash lines, I applied MAC liner in Rosemary & Thyme, a deep olive green with golden shimmer. Curled my lashes, and coated with L’Oreal Carbon Black mascara. I purposely left off false lashes, as I felt there was enough going on the lash line…

And I promise next time I fall into Cosmoprof, I vow to branch out… πŸ˜›

P.S. I’m a HUGE fan of NYX shadows, and promise to do another post dedicated to them. The pigmentation is unreal!

Let me know, have you ever tried this type of combination?

    Golden really makes your inner corner pop! I like how this eye look is soft and very wearable. Great job – I can totally see how you translated your inspiration into your eye look. πŸ™‚
