Berry and Copper toned Eye Look

Okay so I didn't even know what to call this makeup look but sure I am using berries and coppers in honour of autumn's changing colours so I decided why not!
These shades will work well with blue or green eyes, as the coppery orange colours bring out blues, and the purple tones bring out green tones. So it is a look that will really make blue or green eyed gals eyes pop!

I used all Inglot shadows for this look, but I am just going to speak in general terms of colours so you can recreate it with what you have at home without having to go out and buy specific shades!
First I did my foundation using KIKO skin evolution foundation in shade 'Natural Rose' I bought this foundation in Portugal, and barely use it, but it's not bad! It gives quite a glowy finish which I really like. Then I used my old favourites of Catrice translucent powder, Catrice matte bronzing powder and Catrice blusher in Apropos Apricot. I highlighted using MAC Soft & Gentle.
Now onto the eyes!! I used MUA's brow kit in fair to fill in my brows. I'm having a bit of a love/hate relationship with my brows at the moment. I just can never seem to get them how I like them...any tips leave in comments below :)
I used a small fluffy pencil brush and a matte light brown back and forth in my crease, in small circles. Then I took a fluffy blending brush and followed the same routine to get rid of harsh lines. Then I took a shimmery burnt orange and ran it back and forth just under the crease again. I followed this on again on the outer edges with a burgundy shimmery colour. Then I blended all this out with a fluffy blending brush again. I took my pencil brush, dipped it into a matte dark brown and did a V motion on the outer corner of my eyes. I repeated this under my lower lids. In the corner of my eyes and halfway on my lids I patted a light shimmery pink shadow to add highlight and depth. Then blended it along the lid.
I used my black gel liner on the inner rims to 'tightline' and then did my flick on the upper lids, coated my lashes in Better than False Lash mascara from Catrice et voila!!
My lips are wearing Bellapierre mineral lipstick in Catwalk.
And that's it! Haha it probably sounds easier than it was, I love trying out new colours so if you have any suggestions of colours I should use leave them in the comments below my dears :)
