Autumn eyes

Now that Autumn is in full swing I decided to have a rummage through my make up and dig out all the season appropriate colours. I wanted to do a post specifically on eye products mainly because I am trying to get a bit braver with my eye looks and venture away from the standard neutral eyeshadow and black liner. Autumnal colours seem like a nice change without being too out of my comfort zone. So here a few of the things I have been making a point of using recently...

Mac- Cranberry

I bought this ages ago and it has always just sat in my Mac palette looking pretty with me thinking 'how the hell do I make that work?!' Well I found a way! I've been wearing it in the outer corner of my eyes, smoked out slightly and have been absolutely loving it.

Charlotte Tilbury- Dolce Vita Palette

This palette is just brilliant, the colours, the packaging, need I say more? Perfect for this time of year. The red tones really give it that Autumn feel and these shadows blend so seamlessly that you really can't go wrong.

Laura Mercier- Caviar Stick in Amethyst

Stick eyeshadows seem to be having a bit of a moment and its easy to see why, literally just a case of applying directly to the eyelid and blending out with a clean brush. I particularly like this one by Laura Mercier as its a gorgeous colour and lasts for ages!

Mac- Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo in Ever Amethyst 

An Amethyst colour again I know (think its safe to say I like these colours) but just look at how pretty *heart eye emoji*

Nars- Cheyenne Duo

This is an unusual colour combo but I just love the vibrancy of it and how it looks against my brown eyes. I also think this would look lovely on people who are more tanned that me.... which is basically everyone!

Mac- Teddy Eye Pencil

I have been wearing black eyeliner religiously for years so I figured I should give something else a go and this eyeliner gets talked about a LOT. I can totally see why though, it's a lovely brown/ bronze shade that compliments loads of looks and lasts well. I tend to smudge it out a little on my lower lash line just to soften it up a bit.

I'd love to know what peoples favourite eye looks are for this time of year so please leave a comment.
