I absolutely adore wearing my Warm Autumn palette and I'm so happy that I got draped by Jelena Heger in Stoney Creek, Ontario. I feel like my search to define myself is over and now my journey is about to take a new turn, to shed another layer where now I can rediscover everything about my personalized/custom colours. I get to 'transform' myself within my own palette.
For this look, I'm not wearing any lipstick because I wanted to show the natural colour of my lips (which I have often misdiagnosed as 'pink', when in fact, it's a stunning mahogany shade and matches perfectly to my warm autumn swatch). In fact, this shade would be my Zyla 'Romantic' shade - my perfect red - it harmonizes and matches the red tones already present in my colouring:
I have already found a few lipstick matches to this shade and will share those in another post. However, for the makeup look I created, I wanted many elements of warmth to take centre stage: Coppertone blush by MAC, Amber Lights eyeshadow by MAC and Scorch eyeliner by Urban Decay!!! I'm really looking forward to creating more warm autumn looks and also to explore/experiment with discovering my own Zyla archetypes and colours.
