The Face: #08 - Summer meets Autumn

Just when I thought that Summer was officially over in Austria, it celebrated a little comeback the past few days. Thinking about it, September weather was a lot nicer than the rainy August of this year- this week, the temperature was over the 20 degree mark, which is pretty good for September in continental Europe I think. 

Anyways, for yesterday's Sunday makeup I still wanted to have two components: the autumnal purple smokey eyes, but mixed with a summery bright lip ... and because I'm just that adventurous, I threw in a heavy contour just for fun! 


PRODUCTS USED: 
Base/Complexion: Catrice Nude Illusion Makeup - Maybelline Fit Me Concealer - Catrice Colour Correcting Mattifying Powder - Sleek Contour Kit (Light) - Catrice Illuminating Blush 
Eyes/Brows: KIKO Street Fashion Eyeshadow Palette (Limited Edition) - KIKO Ultra Tech Curve Mascara - Catrice Liquid Metal Gel Eye Pencil 060 (not pictured) - MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme (Deep Dark Brunette) 
Lips: MAC Relentlessly Red (retro matte finish) 

Thinking about it it kind of "feels" like a lot of stuff going on on my face: dark eyeshadow, bright lipstick, strong eyebrows, a heavy contour- but somehow it works. Either way, I don't really care- makeup is such a fun creative outlet, I think its fine getting a bit carried away painting my face sometimes! 

What's going on on your faces these days? ;)
