For this look I started with my basic foundation, concealer and bronzer as powder. On my eyes, I used Elizabeth Arden Sparkiling eyeshadow as a base, MAC Soba from lid to crease (my tranquil shade), Lined my eyes with Coffee eyeliner (my 2nd base shade) and smudged Smut into the upper lashline (my 1st base shade). I finished with Zoom Lash - Lofty Brown mascara. On my cheeks, I used NARS Madly blush (a browned/neutral version of my romantic shade) and then mixed MAC's Kinda Sexy and Plink to acheive that perfect warm 'romantic' pink - and voila - a basic everyday makeup look, using David Zyla's colour concepts!

Here is the look that I came up with using some of my best Zyla power colours:
