color of the day : plum and burgundy

I haven't posted that much lately, I'm a bit overwhelmed right now. But I will try to be more active this week. Anyway here's without further ado my color of the week. I've paired burgundy and plum together because they are quite similar it just depends on the perspective.

Look number one: burgundy and pink

I started my eye look by using Maybelline color tatoo in inked in pink as a base. I then used Make up for ever diamond shadow in Diamond burgundy in the crease. I then used Make up for ever star powder in 943 white with pink highlights. I used MUFE aqualiner in bordeau and a pencil olive green eyeliner on the lower lash.

Here's a swatch on the eyeshadows
 From L to R: maybelline color tatoo, MUFE star powder and Mufe diamond shadow.

The eye look
And the full look

I also played with a plum shade and with olive green eyeshadow
The plum eyeshadow is MAC star violet and I used the olive green from a MAC christmas limited edition from 2005! I used a graphite cream eyeliner with the look.

Here's the eyelook
And of course the full face ( I will invest in a better camera soon I promise!)

Anyway I love everything with a red pigment in it, I think It's a no brainer type of color for green and hazel eyes and a great color for autumn.
