Autumnal Eyes- FOTD

We all know that I love boring brown eyeshadow palettes and the thought of putting colour on my lids actually scares me. However this Maybelline Big Eyes Eyeshadow  Palette (in Luminous Browns) seems to be the perfect middle grown between colours and boring browns. It has three ‘safe’ colours and an autumnal rusty orange colour which I surprisingly loved. I never thought I would wear an orange eyeshadow but the surrounding colours really made it wearable and the quality of the shadow itself was impressive; pigmented and blendable. It’s probably one of the better drugstore eyeshadow palettes which I have tried. 
To make the orange even more wearable I piled up the mascara and used my favourite Too Faced Better Than Sex as nothing gives me more volume. I added black liner, Clinique Bronzer and a little highlight under the brow with Benefit High Grow Glow to finish the look along with my everyday Lipstick MAC Patisserie
What is your go-to autumnal eyeshadow palette? Have you tried any great drugstore products recently?

    Browns aren't boring 😉 They're classy!
    Oranges and reds are lovely for your skin tone, though! Don't be afraid to branch out!

    You look so pretty! 🙂 Those eyeshadows are really pigmented! I remember swatching them and being amazed 🙂 I really like the Revlon Lash Potion mascara – I didn't realise how much I liked it until now (since it's almost over)

    Such a pretty look, I have a lot of similar orange-toned shades and never knew how pretty they could look on the eyes.

    This is really pretty and I love the colours in that quad. They compliment each other so well.
