All of a sudden, fall has hit Philadelphia. It is downright chilly in the mornings and even during the day if the sun isn’t out (you’re all like yeah, duh, don’t you have a biology degree?). But it feels very autumnal and I am absolutely loving it! The leaves are well and truly on their way to deep reds and oranges and I felt very inspired!
I painted my nails black and decided that I felt like a pumpkin so I kept the palette simple with just a pop of orange. I really love how this look came out, it’s just so fun and simple. I have seen both Kathleen Lights and Karima from Shameless Fripperies use this eyeshadow placement and I absolutely love it! It’s a great way to add some color to an otherwise neutral look.
I kept everything completely matte and I used a grey eyeshadow for my wing because even though some liners claim they’re matte I still find that a lot of them have a sheen. I only did a bit of crease shading, nothing too overwhelming.
I recently bought a few single eyeshadows from Makeup Geek and this orange shade, Chickadee, was just calling out to me! I popped it in the tear duct since I couldn’t do my shimmer inner corner highlight. What do you think? Would you rock this? Halloween is just around the corner..
