Fall makeup 2015

BareMinerals Ready 8.0 Star Treatment Palette 

Darkspice by Burberry

Hi again!!!!

So as promised, here is a fall makeup look for you lovely people using the Bare Minerals Ready 8.0 Star Palette, and the Darkspice palette by Burberry (I've done swatches of this palette here!) =). I actually recieved these two palettes a year or two back, and haven't really got to using them much til now! I think these two palettes combined will work to create the best fall look this year (despite how they are older palettes) due to the timelessness of the colors. It has the perfect combination of warm tones such as the browns, olives, and the golds. In terms of texture, the Bare Minerals palette definitely won. It's got such a creamy and blendable texture compared with Burberry's more matte and powdered texture. 

For my makeup look, I chose to use the lighter colors in the center of my lids, then slowly blended in the darker browns and black at the end and at the beginning of my lids. This will result in a beautiful gradient effect! For my brows, I chose to fill them in with a dark brown eyebrow pencil by Chanel, and blended it in using a spooly. I then opted to used a darker wine colored lipstick ( I used Mac's lipstick in "Film Noir") on the lips using the gradient technique to add to the overall fall look. Oh, and to finish the look off, I decided to use the lightest color in the bare minerals palette (in carte blanche), as a highlighter on the high points of my features such as the top of my cheekbones, center of my eyelids, cupids bow, and a tiny bit on my chin. This color has a hint of gold shimmer in it, and it looks AWESOME as a highlighter!!!! 

On another writing really does not due justice to how I bring out my makeup looks compared to video tutorials...I'm really working your imagination skills here haha! 

With love,
