Indian Summer Eyes



I forgot how gorgeous MAC Mythology eyeshadow is; it made a lovely lid color when applied wet with a bit of dry eyeshadow patted on top. It brought out the color and diminished some of the fallout that Mythology has. Paired with a deep pink and purple on the bottom lashline, this rich, warm look is reminiscent of both summer and fall.

Romantic Purple Eyes | Too Faced Romantic Eye Collection



Recently I posted swatches and my thoughts on this lovely collection of eyeshadows from Too Faced. Now, you get to see the Romantic Eye Collection in action.

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.

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.
