FOTD: Fall

In case you didn’t know, I live in a tropical country where it’s sunny most of the year. When it’s not hot and humid, there might be thunderstorms and the occasional cloudy cool days. Even that is relative. My dear friend Tracy from Beauty Reflections thinks 22 Celcius is hot but hot for me is 38 Celcius. LOL! Anyway, if you live in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s Fall now. We call it Autumn, and it’s my favourite season. I love the rich colours and the sound of dry leaves rustling by. When I was living in Australia, I’d look forward to April and May. I remember the red autumn leaves and the golden evenings. This look is inspired by the colours of Fall.



These are the products I used. Estee Lauder Violet Underground, Tarte Exposed for a neutral blush and Dior Addict Extreme Black Tie as a stain on the lips. For EL Violet Underground, the brown is not red enough for me so I mixed it with the hot pink. Swatches below show you the difference.




The mix of brown and hot pink adds additional dimension and it looks beautiful on the lids. Here is what it looks like worn.




I really dislike pinks on the lids, but when mixed with this brown, it becomes a beautiful warm burgundy-ish colour. It doesn’t make me look sick nor does it make my eyes look swollen. Oh, the key is black liner 🙂

I think this look can be paired with a nude lip and if I were to go for a night out, I’d wear Black Tie dark and opaque. Black Tie can be too vampy for me to wear opaque in the day, since it’s like summer all year round here, but at night, I can get away with darker vampy lips which I absolutely love!

Hope you liked this look. Do you mix your eye shadows to create a completely different colour? Isn’t it fun?? (yes it is. LOL!) Oh, and in case you haven’t checked it out, there’s a blog sale going on. Do head on over there and have a look!
