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. 🙂
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… 😛

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?
