Autumn eyes
I’m in some sort of denial about the weather getting cooler and the mornings becoming darker – I’m not quite ready to pack away my summer sandals and my Lee Stafford Sea Salt Spray just yet. However, I realised that the colder weather means a new season, which means new makeup trends. The one trend I especially love (and can’t wait to try) is the array of gorgeous autumn eyeshadows trending right now.

Have some fun and transform your eyes with one these hot autumn shades. It’s all about blues, greens, purples, berries and anything in-between. Try one of the following:

1. Clarins Ombre Mineral Mono Eye Shadow in Lavender Tea, R240

2. Essence Eyeshadow in Get Ready, R19,95

3. Yardley Stayfast Quad Eyeshadow in Copper Gleam, R89,95

4. Revlon Photoready Primer and Shadow in Metropolitan, R179

5. NYX Eyeshadow, R79

6. Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Eyeshadow in Shimmering Emerald, R195

7. Rimmel Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadow in Enchantment, R64,95

    I want them all! I just love eyeshadow, but I have never before tried the really dark shades. I normally stick to a girly shimmery brown, tan or beige. The most daring colour I’ve ever tried was chocolate. Maybe I should get the Enchantment by Rimmel. Love their products. I also need to stop applying eyeshadow with a finger lol. Need to get myself one of those soft brush things asap!
