Shades of Plum


I usually like bright and popping colours, or then no colour at all, but as it’s the fall season, darker shades have started to lure me. I am not feeling the fall right at this moment though, as I’m in Chennai and it’s 31 degrees :D. But in Finland on the other hand, the fall is on and it’s probably dark, wet and gloomy. Cudos to you all there ;). In those days you don’t feel at your best so bright colours just seem off.

Every single year in the fall season, there’s one colour to make a comeback in clothing, accessories, nail polish and make up. It’s the plum shade, or aubergine or burgundy, or the different hues of these. I have mixed feelings about that colour. One year I purchased so many pieces of clothing and accessories of that shade and I got fed up with it very quickly. I re-sold most of my clothes and accessories of that shade, but I still love it in nail polish and make up. I found this gorgeus Sephora nail polish  in Paris but it was sold out, so I bought it in Delhi last week. It’s actually more of a taupe colour.

I did find some plum and pink Sephora eyeshadows in Paris and I’m really loving them, as I have green eyes, the colours of the eye shadows really make them pop. I wouldn’t use the pink on its own but as an accent colour on the eyes it looks great. I wanted to accentuate the eyes and the nails with a statement necklace of similar colours.

Even the hair turned out great in this humidity. It didn’t stick for long though, the downside of having flat and straight hair :/.

Tomorrow on Friday the 2nd of October, it’s an occasion of Gandhi Jayanti here in Chennai and it’s a public holiday. Let’s see what that day brings along.
