Top Five Autumn Eyeshadows
Following my Top Five Autumn Nail Polishes and Lip Colours, I had a request for another post in this series; so today, read on to find out my Top Five Eyeshadows for Autumn!

Top Five Autumn Eyeshadows Swatches
Swatched left - right: Urban Decay 'Half Baked'; W7 Rock & Roll Eye Shadow 'Terracotta'*; Urban Decay 'YDK'; MUA Immaculate Collection shade 14; Calvin Klein 'Merlot'.
I love 'Half Baked' all over the lid for a gorgeous shimmery look, or applied with a damp brush as a liner to really brighten up my eyes on these horrid dark mornings we're getting now the clocks have gone back. I reviewed W7's 'Terracotta' a couple of weeks ago and have been wearing it regularly since as it's just so easy to apply and the colour is perfect for this time of year. 'YDK' is another really easy-to-wear shade which is perfect just blended all over the lid for a pretty smoky look which is suitable for daytime wear. Shade 14 from MUA's Immaculate Collection is just stunning and looks amazing patted onto the lids quite heavily, it reminds me of Autumn leaves. Finally, CK 'Merlot' is a beautiful dusky purple with the tiniest hint of a shimmer which is just barely noticeable once on the eyes; I have to be careful with this one to avoid looking like I've got a pair of black eyes, but it's another beautiful colour and one I think works really well this time of year. I've used it blended fairly softly over my whole lid for the look below, along with a dab of shade 14 in the outer corner and crease of each eye. I really like how this looks, it's subtle but still decidedly Autumnal!
