Why does an orange ‘autumnal’ eye shadow make me look like I’ve been punched in the eye?

Switching up the light pink lipsticks and the nude eyeshadow for an autumnal-hue-eye look is OH SO appealing right now,  a step into a different season with a little change in the wardrobe so why not a little re-evaluation on the make up side?

Problem is, the on trend orange/ dark brown/ dark pink eye looks amazing on everyone else, I mean Zoella is the queen of this look and Scarlett Johansson rocks it effortlessly but on me it looks like I have either been a victim of a punch or kept up all night resulting in a red sore eyes?

I know at least in Scarlett’s case a make up artist has spent ages seamlessly blending, layering and using expert techniques to get this look just right but for me, I think it proves that I should stick to what I know, a flick of liner, a fresh complexion and when I remember a slick of lippie but that doesn’t mean I cant Pinterest my favourite autumn make up looks in the hope that one day I can master the look worthy of an Anastasia BH pallet.

I think this is just going to have to be an autumn trend I let pass, for now I will stick to my Berry lip where I feel safe, secure and have blogged previously here

Let me know if you have mastered this look, I will keep practising!
