For the Pigments & Palettes Challenge, I wanted to do something a bit different from my usual wearable makeup looks and showcase my embodiment of Lady Autumn for the month of October (also my birth month)... I generally don't wear a lot of pumpkin colors, so I thought this was a perfect opportunity to branch out.

Here's my very literal interpretation of a branch... or a bird, depending on how you look @ it
For this look, I used mainly Coastal Scents eyeshadows from various palettes. I wanted the eye to be somewhat abstract (somewhat literal), hinting a leaf, a branch or a bird. For the art portion, I used Clinique cream liner in Black Honey (a lovely shimmery brown) and my falsies are accent lashes by Kiss.
On my cheeks, I'm wearing a bright orange blush from a no-name palette and Nars Albatross highlighter over the tops of the cheekbones. My hair is looking a little rough on purpose, I was going for the twiggy disheveled look (not the Twiggy--just twiggy :)
For my ombre lips, I used:
  • Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Soft Nude in the center of the mouth
  • Clarins lipliner pencil in Sienna
  • Revlon Superlustrous Creme lipstick in Bed of Roses on the outer portion of the lips
  • Sephora lipgloss in Bronzed Beauty (applied with a lip brush) over Bed of Roses lipstick
I did a slightly different design on my left eye (your right)--more scaly and leafy, but my "photographer" forgot to take pix of it, so the only ones I have are low res. Sowie :(
