MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Plum Foolery
If you are looking for a sheer but buildable, darker blush with a golden shimmer to it that lasts forever (exaggerating, but no that much), you can stop now. This blush is the first and only one I have bought from MAC and I must say it’s one of my favourite blushes ever. Not only is it of high quality but the shade itself is unlike any other I have ever seen. Nowadays it truly is a staple in my collection, especially during the current season.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Zero
Lately I have not been much for eyeliner. Since seventh grade the cateye has been my everyday go-to, but that is not the case at the moment. Instead I like smoking out this bad boy along the outer part of my lashline. I find that this defines the eyes more intensely and blends in better with eyeshadow, if one is wearing such, than eyeliner does. It’s also quicker which is always a bonus.
Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette
Inspired by the leaves, probably, warmer colours are a given for me when autumn comes. This palette contains the perfect eyeshadow shades for anything from a subtle warmth in the crease to an all in burnt look. The shadows are blendable, vivid and long-lasting. Urban Decay sure knows their makeup.
IsaDora Eyeshadow Quartet in 96 Coffee & Poetry
Another bunch of eyeshadows that have been spending a lot of time on my lids lately are the ones in this quartet. They are, like the Naked Heat ones, the perfect shades for fall and the brand is to be trusted to offer high quality makeup. The tones are colder than the previously mentioned ones though, leaning more towards grape and plum, but it’s nice to be able to vary.
Deborah Milano Red Laque in 3 Lady Be
This glossy lip laque is the ultimate cherry on top, taking your lips to a new dimension. The shade is a dark nude with warm rosy undertones which really brings out my best features. Furthermore the formula feels comfortable on the lips and keeps them moisturized in the cold.
Model Co Shimmer Bronzing Powder
It feels weird to say that I, as a huge makeup enthusiast, have discovered the power of bronzer first at the age of seventeen… I have quite pale skin and I am perfectly happy with that. But what I didn’t realise was that using bronzer to frame your face could give a much more dynamic expression to it. This bronzer in particular is incredibly subtle which makes it almost impossible to make the result look unnatural.
Sleek Highlighting Palette in Cleopatra’s Kiss
Using this palette, you get a lot of glow considering the price is so low. (Extra credit for rhymes? No? Okay…). I own two of these palettes and I swear by them. Many times I am not satisfied with the colours available, wanting a more neutral one, but following the theme of this post I must say that the shades of the Cleopatra’s Kiss palette goes well with many of my fall looks. On my right finger I have swatched Sphinx and on my left I have swatched the same one on top of Dynasty. A picture says more than a thousand words, that’s all I have left to say.
BellaPierre Lipstick in Cherry Pop
This is a lipstick that I always go back to as soon as fall comes to town. It’s a dark wine shade that is surprisingly universal considering how vampy it actually us. The only con is that it often gathers in chaps on the lips, but it is manageable.
