Late-Summer/Early Fall Look - Purple, Bronze, Peach, and Gold

I purchased this.
PR samples.

It may officially be fall, but here in Colorado, it still feels like late summer. There's a nip in the air both morning and evening, but the daytime is warm; yet, the trees are ever-so-slightly beginning to fade into autumn shades. Yesterday, I was in the mood for something summery, but I wanted to incorporate some pretty fall colors, so I pulled out some of the eye shadows from Darling Girl Cosmetics' Queens of Horror Halloween collection (which is available now!) for my eyes, and a few other high end products for the rest of my face. This is what I came up with.

Darling Girl Cosmetics:
  - eye primer all over eyelid area, upper and lower (not yet released)

EOTD: Japonesque Velvet Touch Eye Shadow Duo in 02

I purchased this.

I returned from vacation this week to find my September Birchbox in the mail. It was an awesome box with some great things in it. One of the items in the box was the Japonesque Velvet Touch Eye Shadow Duo in shade 02, which consists of one darker matte brown and a lighter, peachy-pink sparkly shade. I figured I'd use them in a look today and take pictures.

Please disregard my crazy eyebrows. I didn't touch them at all when I was on vacation. I have an appointment this afternoon to go get them cleaned up.





WHAT I USED:
MAC Painterly Paint Pot to prime eyelids
MAC Bamboo in crease and on brow bone, and on lower lid
Kat Von D Indwin on top of Bamboo
Japonesque Velvet Touch Eye Shadow Duo in 02
  - darker shade in deeper crease and outer lower lid
  - lighter shade on moving lid
Kat Von D Liberatus to highlight beneath eyebrow and on inner corner
MICA Beauty Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner in Black to tightline upper lashes
Dior Diorshow Mascara (2 coats)
Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil in Medium Brown
