♕ Periwinkle in Autumn ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Potion Paradise Collection}

Here is the second look I made using the new Potion Paradise Collection by NABLA Cosmetics! This time I wanted to use as much of the new shades as I could - and I ended up using 5 out of 6. I was about to use the sixth too, but gave up because I thought it was  a little too much (plus I didn't know were to place it XD).

Overall it's a pretty autumn-like look, so many warm tones, muted shades - with a touch of periwinkle that brings some spring vibes to the whole look! 


I didn't have any particular inspiration for this look, I just wanted to use as much colours I could - which happens all the time honestly, I'm such an eyeshadow-oholic XD I kept the colour scheme pretty basic, with some small twists here and there... After all, attention to details makes all the difference ;D


First of all, no Primer Potion - again. This time I wanted to try Morning Glory as eye primer, so I applied it all over my lids with my fingers. It has some coverage, so it's good to even out the skin and hide small capillaries, imperfections - things like that. On my lids looks pink - no beige. Hallelujah. And feels weightless also!

I waited for it to dry, then I applied Petite Mélodie on my inner corner - this time I used a thick, dense brush and the application was waaay better. After that, I applied Entropy on the first half of the lid - and please appreciate the effort, I was so tempted to skip it XD
On the rest of the lid I applied Utopia, which as you can see looks a little muted on me - more like a soft bronze than a pure copper. On the crease I applied Rea (alone this time, no black base beneath), not blending it with Utopia and so creating a sharp line - especially towards the end. I quickly blended it out by using a stiff pencil brush, then I added an hint of Juno Moon to soften the blending. Narciso is the usual transition shade and Antique White, on the other hand, is the usual brow bone colour.

(Notice the double wing? The lashes covered it ç_ç)

I did pretty much the same on the lower lid - same colour scheme: Entropy, Utopia, Rea... But I wanted to add a little detail, so I drew a thin line with Rea, basically creating a second eyeliner wing. Then I applied my black eyeliner and, to add definition and clearness to the space between the two wings, I applied Morning Glory again (this time using a small lip brush). Being matte and so light, it's perfect to clean up shapes and highlight negative spaces.

I completed the look by applying false lashes, mascara, a black eyepencil on my waterline and lashine... And by defining my eyebrows (still using NABLA's Brow Pot in Mars!).


So which shade did I leave out? Well, it's Hyperspace! I got very, very close to add it, just for the fun of using all of them... But, as I said at the beginning of the post, I decided not to. I was afraid to overdo, plus the make up already looked nice... Your thoughts? 
Personally I liked the look, even though half of the shades used are not my cup of tea. Petite Mélodie really added a lovely touch to the whole make up, while Rea gave that nice depth and definition to the outer corner. I only wish the double wing detail was more noticeable in picture, it was so cool in person! (I'll try a different angle next time, I promise!)
