For me fall is always a time to start new. To reorganize my life and my room and give everything a good once-over. Step 1 was coloring my hair this year. I had gone a warmer shade of brown before but after this had grown out considerably I decided to make the change a little more extreme and went red, and I have to say I really like it. Plus it’s fall for chrissakes, the red is called for. Enough with me envying other red-heads while the October sun set their mane ablaze, now mine will be ablaze, too.
Also, my messy inverted side braid looks considerably cooler and a lot more artsy in red, no?
What fall also brings with it, are my favorite eyeshadow shades. Yes, I can wear them all year round, but in fall my oranges, reds, greens and browns seem to fit particularly well.
This is the first installment of what will be a series both on this but also on my nailblog (which I share with my bestest of besties). Here you will find my favorite (eye-)make ups for fall, over there my nail color suggestions.
So let’s dive right in:
For the eye make up above I primed my eyes with Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pink Gold, pressed MAC’s Club on with a dense synthetic brush and blended the whole shebang by softly blending MAC’s Cranberry through the crease. I added a flicked half-line with a black liquid liner, tightlined and lined the waterline with MAC’s Feline, blended Club through the lower lash line and added a coat of Max Factor’s False Lash Effect Waterproof. On my lips I wear a blend of MAC’s Myth and Catrice’s Hey Nude. I can’t help it I’m still all over the strong-eyes-nude-lips thing. For some reason I am not brave enough for the strong-eyes-strong-lips trend.
