We're in the clutch of Autumn and the colour of the season is Orange!
Pumpkins, leaves turning, and cute little berries on wintery walks amongst twigs.
A bright Orange pop is also one of my all time favourite shades so I thought I'd spice up the Autumnal palettes a little bit with a powder blue liner, bright nails and a bold lip colour from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.
I must admit I've heard a lot of positive noise about the OCC Lip Tars, but I really struggled to get to grips with it at first, however I think I might've mastered it. Lip balm to prime, not applying too much initially to prevent bleeding out of the lip line and allowing time for it to set. I wouldn't say it dries to a complete matte finish; it does still remain slightly sticky and I don't feel completely at ease that it won't bleed, but it's hard to compete against the ultra high pigmentation that I'm seeking.
This colour is called Beta.
Next, to match - Butter London's (3 Free) Nail Lacquer in Silly Billy - previously posted about here. And upon recently hearing that NARS are fully completely against animal testing, including in their third party suppliers, a playful little tick beneath the eye in their old-y but good-y powder blue (Istanbul) liner finishes it off.
And to top it all off, a couple of tassel earrings made by yours truly to tie in the powder blue and orange-red colour clash - yum.
