Autumn has finally come around, which of course means it is now time to crack out those oh so pretty deep berry and burgundy colours which are my absolute favourite. I decided to do this makeup after reading Anna's 'Autumn Edit' blog post, where I was inspired by the combination of a dark coppery eyeshadow and red lip that she used. For my look I used a Too Faced eyeshadow called 'Soleil' and for my lips I used my favourite lipstick which is Chanel 'La Désiéee'. The eyeshadow is so easy as I only used one colour and blended it out, but I think it is a nice combination with the bright red lipstick. I kept most of the makeup very simple as I already had two bright colours, but I think they compliment my dark hair nicely!

I will definitely be wearing this look a lot more often from now on and throughout the winter, despite the eyeshadow being quite different for me as I love how it has turned out!
