Autumn Earthy tones; Bronze & Khaki!

So i jumped on the bandwagon of doing Autumnal looks, i've done it as a tutorial on youtube too, but the pictures are a little better to see for the eyes, i don't know what was going on with my camera!

The whole look is using this Maybelline eye studio palette in 22 Bronze drama which is perfect for Autumn! Bronze and Khaki's are something i'd never put together, so i used this palette to create a look which i actually quite liked in the end! The palette does have great pigmentation and all 4 shadows are shimmery! I did say on the tutorial that this was going to be a day look, i used the colours very softly to reflect this, however, because they are all so shimmery, this may not be a good day look for everyone.

On the back, it does have a little demonstration of where to put each colour. I think this is very helpful if you're starting out in make-up or if you're using colours you don't usually work with. It also comes with a little brush, a sponge oval applicator for eyeshadow and then a thinner, more pencil like end to use the darkest colour as eyeliner.

I used the colours exactly how it said, except i added some of the highlight colour to the inner corner. I also used the darkest colour and mixed it with some water to make it more like eyeliner. I didn't use the brush it comes with.

 I do like this as a daytime look as far as the tones and colours go, however, i would definitely use more of a matte khaki colour to balance out the shimmer. I love the colour of the eyeliner, it's not too stark but adds good definition and ties the other colours together beautifully.

To see how i did it step by step, watch my tutorial!

What colours do you like for Autumn? Would you wear bronze & khaki together?
