Lately, I've been looking for eyeshadow and liners that are true to the Autumn palette. Brown is a staple for Autumns and I love the warm brown and chocolate shades, but I also want some alternative shades for those days that I want to do something 'different'. I decided to try some warm olive green shade. Pictured above is Make Up for Ever #47 eyeshadow - it was a colour that was screaming 'buy me' when I saw it - and of course, I listened!!!
I decided to create a look based on this warm olive, almost khaki shade. I use #47 from my lid to the crease and then used MAC's Uniform eyeliner on the top and bottom lashline. I then used Stila's 'Flash' liquid liner and smudged it into the upper lash line:
To finish off the warm olive look, I decided to balance out the rest of the makeup with soft copper tones. I used Make Up For Ever #48 blush (a rust-orange shade) and Strength lipstick by MAC.
I really like the olive tones as an alternative. I was worried at first that it was too close to my eye-colour and would look muddy and dull, but I actually really like the effect of the olive shades!!!
