Getting Figgy

Hi everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend! I'm starting the week with another FOTD, and I thought it'd be nice to use some colour this time. I love purple eyeshadows on brown eyes, and thought it would also be really nice for Autumn. 
I started the look the same way as the last one, using the same brow products, concealer and eyeshadow primer.

After applying my NARS primer, I used Benefit's Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Get Figgy all over the lids. It's a really nice shimmery fig colour (would you believe!) and it applies really well and easily. 
Next, I applied NARS Eyeshadow in Ashes to Ashes on the outer corner of the eyelid and through the crease, then I blended it out a bit. This colour really doesn't show up well on camera, so the pictures don't really do it justice, but believe me, it is gorgeous.
Then, instead of my routine of black eyeliner, I decided to use brown instead. I think it goes really well with the purple, and it's not as harsh as black. I used the Rimmel London Soft Kohl Eyeliner in 011 Sable Brown on my top and bottom lashline.
To finish off the eyes, I used my new Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express Smokey Eyes Mascara on my top and bottom lashes. I really like it so far, it didn't clump and left my lashes looking separated, full and fluttery. It didn't make them quite as long as the Chanel mascara I used last time, but I don't really, because I tend to use Maybelline mascaras for more natural looking lashes anyway.
Moving on to my cheeks, I used NARS Douceur, for a hint of colour, nothing too dramatic since there's a lot of colour on the eyes. I left my lips bare, apart from some lipbalm to moisturise them.

Hope you liked this look, let me know what your favourite Autumn colours are!
