I used Mocha mixed with Bronzer on my cheeks and I lined by lips with Nude lipliner by Annabelle and filled them in with 'Mauve it Over' lipstick by Revlon. As for the shadow on my lid/crease - I used Copperplate by MAC (it a no fail neutral for me). I'm still in the process of getting used to my SS colours and learning how to create that perfect neutral balance!

Ash Brown Hair Colour - Part 2
After taking a long look at the last set of photos I posted, I decided to play around with some different makeup colours, mainly my eyeliner. In the original 'Ash Brown Hair Colour' post, I was wearing Charbon eyeliner by Lise Watier, a charcoal grey liner with a slight blue tinge. I don't know why I gravitate towards the cooler grey shades for my eyes, but I don't think they are my best. One of the great things about being a Soft Summer is being able to embrace the autumn influence of a coffee shade of brown. My eyecolour has a lot of naural grey tones in it already (its almost hazel like in colour with grey-green-blue plus some amber flecks in the centre). I think the grey liner combined with the grey in my eyecolour washes me out slightly. I decided to take another photo, this time simply changing the eyeliner to Coffee by MAC and smudging Brun eyeshadow into the upper lash line. Just making this one simple change made a huge difference - my eyes pop instead of hide and now my haircolour seems harmonious with the rest of my colouring - check it out:
