swatches from the top:
YSL Golden Gloss in Golden Pebble [a beautiful plum with multi coloured glitter],
YSL Long-Lasting Eye Pencil in Amber Brown [a reddish brown],
MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork [a satin soft brown],
N7 Eyeshadow Palette [satin plum and taupe]


I decided to go for one-tonal make-up, creating a warm fall trend inspired look... Plummy shades are flattering both on brunettes and blondes... It's a nice way to use colour on your face but still keeping it within the natural colour scheme... For a flush of plum on the lips I used the YSL Golden Gloss in Golden Pebble from the Summer 2012 Collection... I kept it light-handed as I didn't want to cancel out the strong plum eye make-up... 

For the eyes I found this N7 palette I had for ages... Even though it came free with a purchase the texture of the eyeshadows is beautifully velvet with a satin finish... I find brown and plum eyeshadows come out best on MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork... I have stayed away from a black eyeliner for a change to keep it all warm... The YSL Long-Lasting Eye Pencil in Amber Brown beautifully brings out the blue in blue eyes as it had a hue of red in it... And to warm up my complexion I used Guerlain Terracotta Light in Sun Brunettes, which has been my most used bronzer for the past few weeks...

LOVE
