Terracotta Eyes and Red Lips



Never have I thought to combine such warm, red tones with a bold red lip, but after seeing a Pixiwoo tutorial like this on Youtube, I had to try it on myself, and I ended up loving it. It's dramatic, but wearable and so easy; summery, but perfect for autumn.

Glowing Teal Eyes | Sugarpill Cosmetics



Glowing...I thought so anyway. Sugarpill has some absolutely stunning teal eyeshadows. For this look I used a few of their loose eyeshadows. Starling steals the show as the main color, while Magpie darkens the look a bit, and just the slightest touch of Lumi brightens up my inner corners.

Copper, Purple, and Pink Eyes | Sugarpill and MAC



This look is definitely bold, dramatic, and quite different from my current state of simple makeup. Copper Sparkle, a MAC pigment, is just lovely. It's one of my favorites! Paired with some gorgeous purples and pinks from Sugarpill, this look is certainly eye-catching.
