EOTD: Fall Leaves

Hey guys, Happy Pepero Day! Okay so it's after midnight here but it's still the 11th somewhere, right? (If you don't know what it is, Google it! ;D)
Another EOTD using BFTE! This one was for a Fall Leaves inspired makeup challenge I participated in. I wanted to do something unconventional and bright, since I'm better at bright looks than dark ones lol. I'll admit I didn't know how I was going to successfully use all these colors together, but thankfully it turned out way better than I pictured! Although as soon as I blended the yellow with the blue the whole thing started looking like a rainbow eye but whatever, I can live with that. ;3
My inspiration: yellow, orange, red leaves against a blue sky. This is from my backyard :)

The bronziness of Isis makes it look orangey in the light! Loooove this color...<3

 Products I used:
BFTE shadows in:
-Cornflower(almost matte baby blue, inner lid)
-Sweet Nibblets(matte mustard yellow, next to Cornflower)
-Yellow Brick Road (shimmery yellow, to blend blue and yellow)
-Hangover(matte orange, next to Sweet Nibblets)
-Wacky(shimmery red-orange, to blend yellow and orange)
-Addicted(shimmery bright metallic red, outer corner)
-Isis(blackened metallic red/bronze, outer corner and crease)
-Ornamental(shimmery metallic pale gold, above crease and on tear duct)
-Autumn(metallic gold, middle of lower lashline and a tiny bit in inner crease)
-Dragon Slayer, my favorite!!(dark metallic bronze-gold, outer lower lashline
-Very Vanilla(matte skin color, brow bone and all around edges)
-Celtic Charms(over black liner)

Everything else:
-NYX JEP in Milk(as base on lid)
-Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue(lower lashline)
-Loreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black liquid liner pen(upper only)
-Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Zero(upper tightline)
-Milani LIQUIF EYE metallic eyeliner pencil in Brown(waterline)
-Shu Uemura curler
-Cover Girl Lash Perfection mascara in Very Black(2 coats top, 1 bottom)
-mark. eyeliner on brow
-Hard Candy Glamouflage concealer in Light
-BFTE Cosmetics mineral foundation in Alabaster and Bisque(mixed)

I didn't edit any of these photos except to crop, yay for good pictures! :D I've been asked for tutorials, both for this look and also my picture-taking techniques, so hopefully those will be coming up sometime soon!
