Another thing I really like about A/W is the make up. I never wear much in summer but for winter I like to pile it on. Usually in the form of dark lipsticks but this year I couldn’t resist Chanel’s new eye collection Illusion d’ombre. They are little pots of cream to powder eye-shadow packed with shimmer. You can swipe them on sheer for day or build and layer them up for a dramatic evening look. The runway models wore Epatant a greeny-grey, whilst I chose Illusoire a mauve-grey and Mirifique which is black. As always the nail colours are amazing too I am wearing Graphite a silver-gold iron-filing-like colour, I also picked up Peridot which is a golden-green which shimmers like beetle wings and there is Quartz a champaige-browny-gold which is very pale. These are going to fly off the shelves so I would be quick to snap them up.
I am preparing for winter early I know but it is so cold up North, especially at night. I already bought a new coat and will share it with you soon, next on my list is a nice pair of boots, is it too early to put my fire on?
