This morning, I though to myself 'Megan, try that green eyeliner you got a few days ago'. And I did just that. And I happened to like it. A lot.
I primed my eyes with the Avon Eye Primer, then applied a layer of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze, with my ring finger. I then took a simple No.7 blending brush and softened the edges, before using a flat shader brush to pat on a 17 eyeshadow in Walnut Pearl. In terms of the crease, I used the contour colour in the Sleek Face Form palette, a perfect matte warm brown. Once again, I picked up my blending brush and used window screen wiper/ circular movements to ensure there were no harsh lines. Now the fun part! I used the Avon Glimmerstick Diamonds Eyeliner in Emerald Glow to create quite a thick line underneath my lower lashes. This happened to be quite blue toned, instead of the olive shade I was expecting, so to solve that I used a shadow from a Frontcover palette I got donkeys years ago... sorry! Using my shader brush once again, I patted this on top of the eyeliner and squished a blending brush between my fingers and wiggled it on my lower lashline, a more careful way of blending without poking yourself in the eye. Ouch. I must say, the green is more noticeable and vibrant behind the camera.
To top it off, I applied a thin line of the Barry M Blink Precision Eyeliner Pen, which is a new favourite product of mine and something I do hope to review in the future. I avoided a wing because the applicator isn't too good at that.
Lastly for the eyes, a coat of mascara was in order. This time I used Max Factor Clump Defy Waterproof, which again, is a new favourite!
I never do anything to my brows, as they always look too harsh being as they are already quite prominent. They do need plucking though, so excuse my little stragglers!
I adore Autumnal tones like bronzes, olives, navys and plums, so for the nails I opted for the latter by Avon, called 'Midnight Plum' I believe (which can only be found on EBay it seems). This took 3 coats but it's so beautiful I can look past that!
The colder months are definitely my favourite in terms of trends and colours! What's yours?
