Top 15 Favorite Fall Eyeshadows!

Since fall technically is coming to an end, I though it would be appropriate to get around to doing some of my fall favorites! Toady I felt like doing eyeshadow because I wanted too..?! Reason enough, right? Any who most are Deep Purples, all shades of gold, some green and rich browns.

MAC Copper Sparkle Pigment

Is that not the most stunning color you have ever seen in your entire Life? This color is pretty much in technical terms a "BAM IN YOUR FACE" Copper color. This pigment isn't even wet! Just over some Shadow Insurance. This looks amazing if you have blue eyes. And very November/ October-esque.

Fyrinnae Dressed to Kill
This is a Moss green pigment with gold, lime green, and even yellow glitter embedded in it. This color is my favorite color to do a smokey eye on the lid without being too over kill with dark colors. Apply it over Pixie Epoxy and you might have an eye-gasm.

Revlon Cream shadows in Moonlight Jewels
This is a really nice drugstore product, and is one of few companies in the drugstore market that doesn't test on animals. The jewel tones really warm up any eye color and they are pretty pigmented for such a cheap price.

Fyrinnae Medieval Haunting

Medieval Haunting.. Don't you love the name?! It is a black/ brown based gold with antique gold sheen? It is quite complex.. and pretty sweet for some golden smokey eyeness...

Fyrinnae Velvet Vampire
Such a cool color! It is a berry based color with a pink undertone and gold sheen. Especially pretty on green and blue eyes.

Suds n Sass Fall Harvest
This color seems to appear brown in the picture... but I promise you it is a deep purple :) It has some gold undertones, probably so strong that the color appears slightly brown. It is beautiful though because it is one of those special ones that changes in different light. Great for Autumn!

Fyrinnae Beholder
A dark taupe... A delicious dark Taupe :) I have worn this almost every day this month! In my crease, lid, Lower lashline... it is pretty much an awesome taupe with insane sparkle :0

MAC Antiqued
An true Antique looking color. It is a Reddened Bronze color that looks like the color of the trees when they are changing colors. Makes me feel all Autumnal :)

MAC Saddle
I Find this and Satin Taupe very similar.... except Saddle is more warm toned because it has slightly res/ bronze undertones... where as satin taupe is very cool toned. But if you are Warm toned this would look very nice. This color also appears gold in some lights but a red brown in others.

Urban Decay Gash
This is the color of Maraschino Cherries that my mom makes when she makes Cherry Winks. Basically a dark, burgundy, wine.

MAC Cranberry
Cranberry... pretty much describes itself. It is a berry color with strong pinked bronze undertones. Looks really nice with Woodwinked ;)

MAC Woodwinked

This is a hit or miss for most people. It is a personal win for me because it makes my blue eyes look amazing, and doesn't look horrible on my skin. Some people complain it turns orange on them but... hey I like it :) A vintage gold color.

MAC Blackberry

The only Matte color! I was disappointed that it didn't show up as well as I wanted it too, but that is life ;/ It looks patchy in the picture but In real life it is perfect for darkening the crease without using a black. It is a matte dark plum.

MAC Trax

The first MAC eyeshadow I ever bought! I used the heck out of this in Middle school, he he ;) But it is such a beautiful color! It is a plum color with prominent gold sparkles in it. Truely a unique color!

MAC Satin Taupe

Last but not least Satin Taupe. A slivery/ brown/ purple, the true definition of a taupe color. Extremely wearable, especially for fall because smokier, darker eyes are more acceptable. Looks good buy itself or under a black base!

Post yours below! Would love to see what your favorites are!! Have a great Tofu Turkey day!! (I am a vegan that is why i said Tofu turkey, c'est Vrai)

My Highland Honey.... Met me at the Faerie Glen ♛

So my lovelies I recently went to make to pick up some stuff from the new Tartans tale collection ( Loved the theme!!) and So I went and only picked up four things. When I went home I ran into my Makeup Room and Tried on My highland Honey blush, and Faerie Glen Lipstick. I thought Highland honey wouldn't look that good on me because I am soooo fair but I showed up great, and is a perfect peach color for me :) Faerie glen is nice too, but since I have really pigmented lips it didn't show up as well as I had hoped :( But the name is still worth the purchase! I have loved faeries since I was pretty much born! And just Thought I would throw it out that I am wearing sunscreen in this picture which is why it makes me look lighter than my neck :)

Products used:

Urban Decay perfection primer
FRESH Twilight Face Glow

MUFE Mat Velvet + Foundation in #15

What's your Makeup Fantasy?

So what is your makeup fantasy? Did you ever have a thought that a themed Makeup collection like the Nightmare Before Christmas would be the best idea ever? I always think of these things... I would love to see a Makeup line launched revolving around of course the Nightmare Before Christmas, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, and a mix of all of the shows I watched when I was a kid ( 90's). So I guess my question is if you had the chance to create a makeup collection revolving around anything you want, what would it be and what would you name some of the colors? And what would those colors look like? I am very interested in hearing what you have to say! And more posts will be up soon just been super busy with school lately and haven't really worn much Makeup at all!
Until then
