Unforgettable Autumn | Lip Colors to Wear – Beauty Article

I couldn’t leave you without some inspiration for fall lip colors — so many to choose from! While I’ll absolutely wear any color or finish during the year, autumn makes me think of richer colors, whether they are brighter (but saturated) or deeper, vampier. I’ve created three collections of shades: creamier, more matte to satin copper-hued lipsticks, plum-hued lipsticks, and shimmery lipsticks across color families. Copper in Cream Visionary (14), Night Rose (203), Sierra, Mama, Mind Trick, Freckle Fiesta, Palm…

Unforgettable Autumn | Eyeshadows to Love – Beauty Article

My favorite season is autumn–cooler but not too cold (at least, not in Arizona or California, the two places I’ve lived most of my life)–and I love the slight crispness in the air. It seems to be beauty’s least favorite season, though, especially as brands compete harder each holiday season for everyone’s attention. Holiday coverage typically starts early September on the blog, so I don’t have much hope for any last minute fall collections to come my way (I’m sure…

ColourPop Strawberry Shake Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x9) – Beauty Article

Colour Pop Strawberry Shake 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new palette that features a mix of coral, pink, and red with a smattering of peach hues. It’s a fairly versatile palette, despite living in a more monochromatic theme, as there’s a nice mix of depth and finish. There are three shades that are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area” and are “Pressed Pigments,” and those shades are: My Milkshake, Take a Sip,…

A Summer of Love | An Ode to Coral Lipsticks & Lipglosses – Beauty Article

Anastasia x Jackie Aina Eyeshadow Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x15) – Beauty Article

Anastasia Jackie Aina Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.392 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features a good mix of finishes, undertones, and depths. It’s one of the more versatile palettes that has been released recently, so putting together some ideas was fun instead of challenging! About This Series Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin…

ColourPop Orange You Glad Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x9) – Beauty Article

Colour Pop Orange You Glad 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, orange-themed monochromatic palette. It is going to be most versatile when paired with other products in your stash than on its own, especially as I removed the glitter eyeshadow from consideration in building the look ideas. If you had a lighter shimmer, deeper shimmer, and perhaps a deeper red-brown matte, you could stretch this palette out a lot! About This Series Each look idea…

Tarte Unleashed Eyeshadow Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x10) – Beauty Article

Tarte Unleashed 15-Pan Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.645 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette with a mix of rosy and warm-toned neutrals with pops of mid-tone teal and deeper blue-teal. I really enjoyed the palette from a quality standpoint, and I’m not always a fan of Tarte’s eyeshadows (often the mattes are too powdery), but these had a lot of intensity, good substance, and were easy to work with. About This Series Each look idea is…

Melt Cosmetics Impulsive Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x12) – Beauty Article

Melt Cosmetics Impulsive 18-Pan Pressed Pigment Palette ($65.00 for 0.714 oz.) is a new palette that features seven mattes and the rest are shimmers (and more metallic/sparkly ones at that. There were a lot of different shades in the palette, though it runs darker/deeper, and there’s a lack of cooler-toned shades to pair with some of the cooler-toned shimmers but does encourage thinking outside of the box a bit! About This Series Each look idea is centered around a “quad”…

ColourPop Uh-Huh Honey Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x8) – Beauty Article

Colour Pop Uh-Huh Honey 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a yellow-themed palette, and as it is monochromatic, it’s not the most versatile palette on its own but should be a great complement to adding pops of yellow to any looks when paired with other palettes in your stash. I did purposefully omit Palooza, which is a Pressed Glitter and isn’t approved for usage on the immediate eye area, from consideration in the combos! About This Series…

Huda Beauty Neon Pink Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x8) – Beauty Article

Huda Beauty Neon Pink Neon Obsessions Palette ($29.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a mix of mattes and shimmers across lavender and pink hues. There were warmer, almost coral-leaning pinks paired with richer fuchsia and magenta pinks. The colors come together well, and the subtle differences in tone and depth make the shades blend seamlessly. I think you can get a few different looks out of the palette, but it would benefit from a complementary palette for extended use. About This…

Huda Beauty Neon Green Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x8) – Beauty Article

Huda Beauty Neon Orange Neon Obsessions Palette ($29.00 for 0.45 oz.) is one of the least versatile palettes I’ve come across, given it has nine shades, but they are so light and mid-tone without enough contrast that I found it quite hard to use it cohesively. I think it might work better for certain skin tones and for someone who only uses one or two shades in a look. I’d say this is more my best attempt at creating eight…

Huda Beauty Neon Orange Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x8) – Beauty Article

Huda Beauty Neon Orange Neon Obsessions Palette ($29.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes bright pops of yellow, orange, and pink across mattes and shimmers.  I could see incorporating a few more shimmers if you want to add more versatility, as there was a good range of depth and tone for the mattes.  It’s a smaller palette, so while I think there are some different combos that can be created, it’s not one that stretches that far on its own. About This Series…

ColourPop Main Squeeze Eyeshadow Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x9) – Beauty Article

Colour Pop Main Squeeze 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes three true shimmers, one satin, and five mattes. I think the quality is there in the palette, but the shades ran together a little more than in past palettes so it was a lot less versatile. If you have lighter shimmers and some matte burgundy/plum shades on hand, I think you could extend this palette quite a bit by adding those to it! About This Series Each…

ColourPop Blue Moon Eyeshadow Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x9) – Beauty Article

strong>Colour Pop Blue Moon 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) has an assortment of blues ranging from pale, iridescent blue to darker blue. I think the palette could have used a really inky, blue-black and perhaps a true navy blue. The tone of Clued In seemed oddly warm-toned relative to most of the shades in the palette, and I felt like it didn’t go well with other mid-tone shades in the palette. About This Series Each look idea…

Natasha Denona Sunrise & Sunset Palettes Makeup Look Ideas (x15) – Beauty Article

As the new Natasha Denona Sunrise 15-Pan Small Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.67 oz.) is designed to complement the original Sunset palette, I thought it’d be nice to share some color combinations using both palettes! About This Series Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or…

Natasha Denona Sunrise Eyeshadow Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x15) – Beauty Article

Natasha Denona Sunrise 15-Pan Small Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.67 oz.) is a new, permanent palette designed to complement the original Sunset palette. There was a good variety of mattes, shimmers, and depths, so the palette easily stood alone and offered a variety of looks from slightly cooler (with Aster and Glory) and much warmer (with Carnelian and Clove). About This Series Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring…
