H&M 'Most Wanted' EOTD

A recent obsession with a colour scheme in the line of burgundy, aubergine, bright peachy pinks, sable and taupe has hit me these days. In particular, an unhealthy obsession with the colour burgundy - be it in dresses, bags, shoes, cardis etc. 

I thought an eye look translating my fixation was inevitable and here it is. Not quite as beeeeautiful as H&M's Most Wanted collection but just a fun take as if I'd be doing make-up for the campaign. Hah, one can wish endlessly. 

No that's not premature ageing you see there, I was simply cringing for a snappy picture than usual. 

I am not going to bother listing what eye shadows I used here because they were literally endless palettes of Sleek sitting on my dresser whilst I layered crazily like a make-up scientist. Although the end result captured by my camera is as if it was all one colour. *sigh*  Oh DSLR, when will you come in my life?

But I will show you the lashes I used here by Japonesque as I absolutely am in love with them. They are the Demi Flair Black I believe, a wispy half set which makes them super easy to apply. I do wish the band was a little thinner so it would be easier to disguise it with a liner. Except that, it is super fluttery and romantic besides being quite long at the ends. Definitely wearable for night outs or occasions, especially if you're looking for interesting lashes with a bit of a twist.

Regardless of whether you like my look or not, do check out H&M's collection as you NEED to own at least one piece of burgundy this Autumn (yes, Summer's almost ended Brits!). I have my browser bookmarked the checked trench coat and the burgundy boyfriend cardigan. 

Will you be getting something from here? What's you colour of choice this Autumn?
