Cool-Toned Colorful Fall Makeup

It’s officially the Fall season and I am so happy. I sometimes get just a tad too psyched on Makeup during this time of year. I’m not sorry for it. I feel like this is the season I tend to get more inspired than normal, and I always welcome that wholeheartedly! I love cooler weather. I love to be outside. I love rain. I love chilled days and hot tea. So many awesome and happy things come with this time of year. So let’s “makeup” accordingly, shall we?!

Here is a list of all the shadows I used to create my first Fall look of the year!

Summer Gold: Birthday Girl Makeup (3 Shadows)

ColourPop Cosmetics Birthday Girl Limited Edition ColourPop Nillionaire MakeupGeek Creme Brulee Best Cruelty-Free Makeup

I have been loving this particular look this week. I wore it for the first time at my niece’s 10th birthday party last week and I’ve worn it two more times just since then. I love this eye makeup so much; It’s simple, quick, universal, appropriate for so many different occasions, soft, neutral, glam…you understand, I’m sure….

I was feeling festive on that Saturday and I felt a birthday party was the perfect (and most obvious) occasion for me to break out my limited edition Birthday Girl shadow by ColourPop Cosmetics.

Makeup Favorite: My Top 5 ColourPop Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Cosmetics Super Shock Shadows makeup bblogger cruelty-free makeup affordable makeup

As always, I’ll make this super brief. Super simple….
I’m pretty much obsessed with this company. I made my first purchase about 9 months ago and I was blown away by so many things. Customer service being first on the list. I’ve since made more orders from ColourPop than I care to publicly admit, but I will tell you this; I’ve never waited longer than 7 days before I received my order in the mail, nothing has ever come to me broken, and they leave hand-written notes for you…need I say anything else? Second, is obviously the product itself and the unreal quality and pigmentation you get. These babies stay ON and don’t budge. I always receive compliments from strangers  when I wear the Super Shock shadows, they’re way too intense to ignore, but not “too much” for everyday wear. Third, THE PRICES. Not only are these products amazing, and cruelty-free, but the prices_are_RIGHT, you guys. $5 dollar shadows and lippie stix, $8 dollar blushes, highlighters, and bronzers….like, come on, let’s get real. If you’ve been on the fence about making an order, I encourage you to please hop off, and just do it.

These are my top five most favorite shadows, in no particular order:ColourPop Cosmetics Super Shock Shadows makeup bblogger cruelty-free makeup affordable makeup


L to R
Liberty: The most insane and pigmented, true silver that I have EVER seen.
Bae: There’s nothing to say about this shade. It’s genuinely Bae…100% truth.
Hammered: The most beautiful cool-tone deep bronze color with deep green/brown undertones. I die.
So Quiche: A super neutral light bronzy color with the most legitimate amount of lavender flecks.
Mooning: The most perfect warm brown you’ve ever seen.

Lush Cosmetics cruelty-free handmade cosmetics Ocean Salt Scrub Lip Scrub Mint Julips bblogger

I’ve been getting quite a bit of people lately commenting or asking questions about what I’m doing that’s making my skin so “clear” or “flawless”. First of all, that word in general makes me uncomfortable lol. No ones skin is perfect and without flaw 100% of the time….. BUT, I do have an answer to their questions nonetheless, and it’s not usually an answer they’re expecting.

Neutral Makeup: Wings, Brows, and Lashes

MOTD winged liner Maybelline Master Precise Liner anastasia brows neutral makeup MakeupGeek Cosmetics
I finally decided to quit being a total pansy, and busted out the falsies. I have a ton of them just sitting around on my vanity and they never get used because I always tell myself things like “they’re too tedious” or “they’ll be too difficult for me to get on” but it’s all nonsense. I threw these bad boys on yesterday in only about 3-4 extra minutes! I find that letting your glue get plenty tacky and using tweezers is such key. False lashes are life, and I wish I could have them just permanently glued to my eye lids forever. Here’s a super simple, neutral look that works for pretty much any “everyday” occasion.

I used all MakeupGeek shadows as per yoozsh, with a ColourPop shadow (I ♥ This) on my inner corner. I winged out my liner, applied some Ardell lashes, threw on some brows, and called it a day.

MOTD: Spring Sparkle

Spring makeup MakeupGeek Makeup Geek Cosmetics foiled shadow Showtime MOTD cruelty free winged liner brown eyes

Everyone does Spring a little differently. Some do it with pastels, and bright pinks. But I like to keep it smokey, glam, and sparkley – as always! I wish I could tell you that I’m super great at “light” makeup but……you know I keep it exceptionally real with you guys so, I’ll do no such thing. I do always try to get better at it of course, but I just have a heavy hand by nature so, that’s that. This has been my most favorite go-to look for Spring as of late and I cannot get enough of the MakeupGeek foiled shadow “Showtime”. This shade is the star of the show, hands down…

It’s four shadows, and it doesn’t require any thinking on my part…which, lets just be real, is always a plus before I’ve had my coffee.MakeupGeek neutral makeup bblogger Barcelona Beach cruelty free makeup I use all MakeupGeek shadows for this (click the link to shop their site).
