Finally the weather has started to change and I feel like I can fully embrace autumn. The one thing that I absoltley love about the change of weather and seasons is changing things around in my makeup bag and picking colours that suit my mood and the weather outside. The thing that really gets me excited about autumn is bringing out the berry toned shades whether this be in my choice of lipstick, blush or eye shadow. After what seams years of having this eye shadow on my wishlist I finally got around to picking up the gorgeous frost Mac eye shadow in the shade 'Cranberry' as it must be the ultimate autumn shade to wear on your peepers.
As soon as I got my little beauty mitts on this shadow I feel in love, it really is that gorgeous. Uusually I tend to stay away from anything with a frosty finish as I find that it can be a bit too much for daytime and I don't want to go out looking like a disco ball, however 'Cranberry' has just the right amount of frost finish to it - I find it rather subtle and it really adds a pop of warmth to my makeup look.
As far as an eye shadow goes, its everything that you would expect from Mac and more; It has a long lasting finish, is super pigmented and blends like a dream. Today I've paired it with 'Toasted' and 'Hustle' out of my Naked One Palette to create the perfect autumn eye look. I've popped 'Cranberry' all over the lids of my eyes and then blended 'Toasted' and 'Hustle' in the crease and outer corners. I think for more of an evening look, cranberry will look gorgeous paired with a gold shadow such as 'Half Baked' for a more of a glitsy look, but the look I've created today works so well for daytime and evening, especially if your wanting to make a bit of a statement with your eye makeup, its perfect.
I would love to know if you have 'Cranberry' in your makeup collection and if your planning on wearing it this autumn, let me know in the comments below.
Lots of Love
