Happy Monday and Happy Autumn! Today I have a post full of all my makeup favorites that I have been reaching for this Fall season so far. I tried to narrow down what I have been loving but it’s still a ton of products.
Grab a latte and let’s get into this!
Starting with the eyeshadow. Eyeshadow is my favorite makeup product I think. This Fall I have been reaching for some new loves and old favorites.
As for the new, I have been living for the Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette. You can read my full review here: Review | Swatches | Looks – Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette
These are the perfect Fall shades, from cranberries and reds to olive, purple and orange. This is a fun palette to play with and really inspires my creativity with makeup looks. The shades are truly unique, and amazing quality. 10 out of 10 do recommend. This palette is not only ideal for Fall but I can def see reaching for it all throughout the Holiday and Winter Seasons.
A classic for Fall and moving into Winter is definitely the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance. It’s full of warm berries, reds, and browns. I have been reaching for it to complement looks I have been doing with the Saints & Sinners Palette and The Kat Von D Serpentina Palette.
Another palette I have been reaching for to go along with other the Kat Von D palettes is the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay Pro Eyeshadow Palette because it’s packed full of amazing shades that help create a polished look. Not only have I been reaching for this for myself, it’s been a go-to for clients lately too.
I’m pretty sure I included this last year in a Fall favorites. It’s an oldie but a goodie. The Kat Von D Monarch palette is Autumn in a palette.
And last for palettes is the Kat Von D Serpentina palette. Do I need to say more? Look at this guy. It’s got all the shades I love really for year round but especially for Fall.
On a more affordable front, there is Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Trio in Velour Vixen. This is a Fall release last year but it’s pretty and such good quality I wanted to include it along with the Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Beverly which is a matte cranberry. Can you tell I like cranberry shades?
And from the indie side, I have two single eyeshadows from Sparrow Cosmetics in Mr. Mint and Gloopy. These shades are gorgeous and super pigmented! Sparrow has a lovely range of eyeshadow and highlighters packed with pigmentation. You can check out the Sparrow Cosmetics IG and Etsy store to see all the pretties.
As for liners, I am still loving the Nyx Faux Blacks in Blackberry, Black Olive, and Oxblood. (not pictured) I use these guys year round but they are perfect for Fall.
As for face stuff, like blush and highlighters, Well, I am still using the same old blush shades from Tarte, Milani, Hourglass and Too Faced.
As for highlighters, I have been gravitating toward champagnes and golds mostly because they tie in with a lot of the warmer eye looks I have been doing this season. My favorite warm toned highlights are from the Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Palette and the Wet N Wild Gold Bar highlighter from last year.
Though I tend to lean toward warmer toned looks for fall. The Saints & Sinners Palette has inspired a few cool-toned makeup looks and for those looks, I go for the ABH Moonchild Glowkit. I really want the new ABH Glowkit for Holiday!
For lips, I have way too many pics and usual so let’s just get to it. LOL! Most of these are Nyx Liquid Suedes, I am a huge fan of those and picked up the lip vault when it was launched this year so it’s been my go-to lippies.
These are shades I have really been enjoying for Autumn from Nyx. Aside from Nyx is the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquefied in Demi-Glace and Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Damned.
And my other go tos are these beauties from Maybelline. The Maybelline Loaded Bolds in Raging Rasin, Gone Griege and Coffee Addiction; and Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lip Color in Molten Bronze because that shade is amazing.
Here is just an example of a look I did Molten Bronze.
A couple recent loves for fall are super affordable! First is BH Cosmetics Metallic Liquid Lipstick in Amber. This formula is amazingly comfortable and I picked it up for around $4. Then there is the WetnWild Silk Finish Lipstick Mink Brown I bought on a whim for 99 cents while I was getting groceries. It’s a perfect reddish brown, and the formula and pigmentation are insane. 99 cents? I can’t even!
Again, tons of picks!
First are some picks from Native War Paints. The glossy taco (topcoat) I am loving is a limited edition one for Fall. It’s special because it’s scented like Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie. So good. It’s a great top coat and the scent is glorious. It actually lasts!
Next from Native War Paints is Pumpkin Paradise. It’s glittery orange polish that can work as a topcoat or sponged on for full-on orangey glitter goodness. Next is Pumpkin Picking which is lighter orange shade with shimmer and a pink shift. Then Stuffed, a gold holo glitter top coat, and Gala, a cooler toned red based polish with holo glitter. I can see Gala making her way into the Holiday Season.
A couple more from Native War Paints is Deep Fried Turkey, a brown creme that is my kind of shade, and lastly from Native War Paints is Braeburn which is a peachy based shade with golden iridescent glitter. I love this shade for early fall.
Next up is a cool toned brown creme from Whim. called Spanish Lover. This shade pulls almost purple, it’s muted and smoky. A gorgeous fall shade.
Moving into the cooler purple toned shades, I love a good blackened cool toned purple like Mauvelous from Sinful Colors and a softer mauve like Absolutely Mauvelous from Pure Ice. These two will def carry over into winter.
And of course, you can’t go wrong with a basic black!
Lastly for polish is greens. I love a good green toned polish. My number one is OPI Suzi the First Lady of Nails, its a perfect olive green creme polish that I am addicted to.
Also in the green family is Revlon Parfumerie in Italian Leather which is a more greyed out olive with a slight sheen and Native War Paints Cable Knit Sweater which is a shifty shade. It can look more golden green or grey-blue with a gold sheen, depending on the light.
Finally is the Wet N Wild MegaLast Nail Color in Ninja Lovelace. It’s a brown-black with gold shimmer and greenish undertone.
That’s my makeup picks this fall. I haven’t purchased a whole lot of new things this season, and have really been enjoying the makeup I have instead. However, I still can’t get Subculture out of my head. I’m getting it.
Anyway, that’s all for today. I’m aiming to have a Lust or Bust on more Holiday up tomorrow or Wednesday as well as a review of the Mary Kay Smoky Palette and a makeup tutorial Friday, so I will see you guys then!
Before you go, here are some of my past Fall makeup tutorials from this year and last.
