I'm not usually very seasonally bound with my make-up. I know that lots of people prefer corals for summer, pastels for spring, burgundy and coppers for autumn and darker looks for winter but I usually don't really care about that and do whatever I want. This time I wanted to do a look inspired by autumn leaves, which I find incredibly beautiful when the sun hits them just right and they postively glow a beautiful burnt orange.
On the eyes I used a shimmering gold as a base, with a brick red in the outer corners and run under the eye and a shimmering orange to blend it in. I also used quite a bit of white golden glitter in the inner corners, to really open up the eyes and a little bit of burgundy in the lower lashline as well. As a finishing touch I made a winged eyeliner and also lined a little bit under my lower lashes so that my eyes look a bit bigger and brighter.
On the lips I wore a peachy lipcolour, blotted on for a sheer finish and on my cheeks I used a coral blush without any glitter. There was already a lot of shimmer in my eye look so I made sure the rest of my face was shimmer and glitter free.
I really personally like this look! It's surprisingly flattering and although the colours are quite bright, they don't feel too overpowering. It's actually a pretty good alternative to my usual everyday look, and I think I might be replicating it very often. What do you think?
