Gold & Cranberry Eyes

The fall weather has finally reached NYC, and I am loving it! Today, I thought I would share this autumn make-up look. It reminds me of the changing leaves and incorporates some of my favourite eyeshadow shades this season, gold and cranberry.

I wore this look for my birthday and thought it worked well for both the day and night. It's a bit of an everyday look with a twist. I had a lot of fun using the different eyeshadows to create a gradient effect and kept the rest of my face on the neutral side.
