Autumn Colours with Periwinkle Liner

I felt like doing something different with my eye make-up yesterday and came up with this combination.  I added in a slick of pale blue liquid liner along the upper lashline to add an unexpected flash of colour to a peachy-pink, orange and brown eyeshadow look.

Tip: If the blue liner is too much for you, you can just leave it out and stick with the eyeshadow look.  I really liked how the eyeshadow combination looked on its own as well.

Adding a sweep of coloured eyeliner to an otherwise neutral eyeshadow look is a nice way to introduce colour to your make-up.  This technique is particularly nice if you fancy trying out colour but find it a little daunting. 

Tip: Sticking to neutral tones of eyeshadow also means you can experiment with different colours of liner.  Try purple, blue, bronze and silver for a twist on the same look.

I’m a huge fan of the Kiko Water eyeshadows and so I couldn’t resist picking up another one when they had a sale in store.  I just love the shimmery, candy pink hue of this particular Water eyeshadow.  I mixed it up a little by applying purple in the crease and and a silver liquid liner along the upper lashline.

For this look, I added a slick of a glitter liner (Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Amp) along the lashline to add some sparkle to this aqua-green combination.  I really like the glitter liner adds a little extra something to the look, without changing it too much.

For this particular look, I took inspiration from a skirt I have with a tie-dye, swirled effect.  The skirt has a mix of black, pink, blue and purple and I thought it would look so cool to mimic that combination on my eyes.

For this look, I brightened up a deep teal smokey eye by applying a true gold eyeshadow on the inner part of the lid.  Using a lighter, shimmery shade on the inner lid adds some contrast when using deeper colours elsewhere on the lid.

MAC Patina is a really interesting eyeshadow, in that it can look more gold, taupe or green, depending on what other shades you use alongside it.  I combined Patina with green, brown and taupe tones to bring out the different flecks in the shade.

For this look, I used shades from the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette to create a soft, plummy effect on the eyes.

Note: I used the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and the brush that comes with it to create this look.  You can use any brand of eyeshadow you like which has similar shades to re-create this look (if you don’t have the Naked 3 palette), along with any similar brushes in your kit.

Green is one of my favourite colours and so I wanted to create a look based around this shade.  I combined together the NYX Slide-on Eye Pencil in Tropical Green with gold and lime green eyeshadows.  I completed the look with golden peach blusher on the cheeks and a satiny peachy-coral on the lips.

MAC Melon pigment is a very versatile shade, as it can be paired with other neutrals or used alongside brighter colours.  I used a teal eyeliner along the upper and lower lashlines to give a pop of colour to this neutral, golden-peach look.

Tip: You can easily change up this look by using a different colour of eyeliner.  Purple, blue and green would all work well and give a different twist to the look.
