Bronze Fall Makeup: On The Rocks

ColourPop Cosmetics ColourPop On The Rocks House of Lashes Iconic Lashes MakeupGeek Cosmetics MakeupGeek Sugar Rush MakeupGeek Duochrome Ardell Brow Gel Fall Makeup Bronze Fall Makeup

Well, we made it to Friday.
This week was a terribly long one.
Our dog has had diarrhea since Monday, poor little guy.
We “evaluated” our finances and tracked spending this month (shoot me).
We’re heading to Europe in 4 more days.
We’re incredibly short-staffed in my department at work.
I’m honestly amazed I found the time to even do makeup at all this week now that I’m thinking out loud.

Bronze Fall makeup.
I dug out my “On The Rocks” shadow by ColourPop Cosmetics and I forgot how perfect it is for this time of year. It’s so buttery and perfectly sparkly.
Keep on reading for the full product breakdown used to get this eye look.

Very Neutral Everyday Makeup – No Lashes

MakeupGeek Cosmetics Everyday Neutral Makeup Makeup For Work bblogger Ardell Brow Gel Maybelline Nude Lipsticks Maybelline Color Elixirs Fall Makeup Neutral Fall Makeup

This has been my main everyday neutral “go-to” look this fall.
It’s ridiculously simple.
It’s super toned down and soft (minus the liner).
It would look great on anyone and everyone.

I tend to still do a more “dramatic” cat kind of winged liner with this look sometimes, but that’s totally optional. Other times I do no liner, or smoked liner using a black shadow. Whatever tickles your fancy.

Cooler weather is almost among us, and it’s so close..I can taste it.

I’ve been doing a lot of traveling lately. I’ve failed to post the last six or so trips I’ve taken. Life is just freakin’ jammin’ so hard right now, I’ve been loving it. I have tons of makeup and travel posts I need to catch up on but, here’s something I did more recently (yesterday) because, ALMOST AUTUMN!

Dramatic “End of Summer” Makeup

Yesterday I wanted to do something that said “I may or may not be (but definitely am) a little excited for cooler seasons but, I’m also still enjoying what’s left of the Summer time”.
Jah feel?
I used cool blues and cool browns on the eyes but still brought back the brightness and warmth with a rosy pink blush and mauve colored lips.
I was super heavy-handed. 
I’m not sorry for it.
