“Roll the windows down,this cool night air is curious”
Lyrics from the song ‘Passenger’ by Deftones ft. M.J.Keenan
Open your windows people! Let some fresh air come in and let your air-conditions relax a bit! Fall is finally here!
I know I may get some hate for expressing my love for this time of the year but let me explain myself.
Living in Greece summer can become torture sometimes for many of us. Temperatures rise up to 40°C … plus humidity! Ang yes I know what you’re thinking. You live by the sea, you fool! I know, i know… but honestly how often can you go swimming when you’re working full-time 5, sometimes 6 days a week? See? Not that often!
And should I talk about sleeping? Finally I can sleep without waking up a million times at night because I am literally melting… because my poor cat wants to cuddle but his hair is sticking all over me… because I am under attack by some bloody mosquitos!
So yes… I am definitely a fall girl! I was born in September so maybe that has something to do with it! I love the smell of fresh made coffee in the morning. I love the grey-golden skies when I’m driving at 7 am to work. I love the sound of the rain and the melancholy this season brings with it! And lets not forget the fall-fashion and makeup! Oversized hoodies, hats,coats, booties- burgundy red lips, coppery eyes, red nails…Autumn is THE season, where you can boost out your most fashionable attire!
As you can imagine I have already begun to experiment on some new autumn looks. The following is one of my favourites so far!
To achieve this look you will need:
For the eyes:
Apply Soft Ochre first all over the lid as a base. Then Texture, all over the lid as well and a bit of Swiss Chocolate in the the crease.
Finish off with some eyeliner…
For the face:
Apply your base as usual and bronze up your face by using a lighter bronzer for this season. Concentrate on the areas of your face that the sun would normally catch, such as the apples of your cheeks,nose and forehead.
For the lips:
For the nails I don’t always go matchy-matchy with my lipstick. But this time I did, and I loved it.
I have been enjoying this look lately. If you want to wear this look during the day then skip the darker color in the crease and the eyeliner and you are good to go!
