bright autumn

black rose minerals recently released a new set of colors – mixtape collection. i’ve been eyeing on them especially the oranges when previews of the collection was posted on the facebook page. however i’m on no-buys until i get a job. it’s hard drooling over those colors. in the mean time i digged through my existing collection of oranges and did a bright orange look today.

    Again I’m a very boring person. I have only natural eye shadows. I wish I could have invested on a palette that has array of different colors I can play with. This looks so nice on you. Hope you are enjoying fall.

    @cyn, you have to try colorful eye shadows, especially it’s sprint / summer at your end of the world. you can start with some subtle colors to get use to them.
