Matching your scrunchies to your knee high socks was all the age when we were kids, so why can't matching your eyeliner to your lipstick be a thing as we transition into the warmer months? Berry lips have always been an autumnal favourite of mine, but the warmer toned eyeliner is a trend I shunned for fear of creating the illusion of pink eye, previously preferring to leave this eyeliner colour to the lighter eyed girls, who red tones seem to suit so perfectly.
That was until I discovered a new favourite, KIKO Glamorous Eye Pencil in 403, a deep burgundy, shot through with glimmering flecks of red. Much to my horror, I actually love it. Somehow the creamy liner manages to veer away from the 'I've had zero sleep' vibe, and rather imparts a soft defined look that I adore.
I pair it with an old favourite, Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk Lip Cheat under an old, rediscovered favourite, No 7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Classic Rose, something I hadn't unearthed since those hazy days working on the No 7 counter in my youth. In photos the eyes and lip complement each other and as the evenings draw in darker, its a combination perfect to match the falling leaves on the ground.
