I am the type of person who is always seeking and learning. I'm eternally on a journey to be my best self. I think that life is too short to not do the things that you really love! I have made a pact with myself that I will celebrate who I am and I will honour my spirit!
Gold and Amber - the sound of these colours just brings the essence of warmth alive. In my admiration of the warm autumn palette and stepping into it once again, I couldn't help but want to customize a makeup palette around gold and amber shades. I started with creating a look around the lipstick Make Up For Ever #17 - its a pure gold/amber shade - in this photo I'm just wearing the #17 - no lipliner, no gloss, nothing but the #17 - at first I thought it would look too gold as a lipstick shade on its own, but it works!!! On the eyes I used the classic 'Amber Lights' shadow from MAC on the lid into the crease. I then used Urban Decay eyeliner in 'Burbon' - its my new favourite product and absolute new favourite eyeliner. I love, love, love this eyeliner for the warm autumn palette. I smudged a little bit of MAC saddle into the upper lashliner and also used saddle for my eyebrows. MAC Gingerly was used as the blush! Sometimes its really fun to pick out a classic colour from your personal colour palette and just have fun draping yourself in that colour and creating a makeup look based on that shade. I went all out with the gold/amber, even finding an amber toned scarf! Its practically matches the Make Up For Ever #17 shade. Recently, I've been playing around with the #17 and different lipliner shades - I can't wait to share that post soon with you!!! :)
