Tutorial: Colour Pop Eyes For Fall


Hair and Makeup Addiction Brushes

I have been getting a lot of questions about the brushes that I use for some of my looks- here it is! This complete set is from Hair and Makeup Addiction- the brushes are synthetic hair with bamboo wood handles plus Vegan friendly!   Visit the site for other sets if you feel you don't need a complete one like this- there's sets for eyes, face and individual.  So many uses for each one that you really don't need any other brushes.  I know, at times,  a big set like this can get confusing or overwhelming but don't you worry! You will find the name of the brush labeled on the handle- the names relate to the the purpose of the brush.  Of course, you don't have to use it for the particular purpose/feature but hey at least you won't be left in a dark.  I will do a more in-depth review of these brushes and how I like to use them.

products to create this fall inspired smokey eye. Here are the products that I used to create this look.

For the eyes the  Shadows  are Smoke (lid) Smokey (inside the crease), Chocolate (above crease) all from the

Motives My Beauty Weapon Palette

.  This palette is wonderful! You can really create a variety of looks from natural to super glam.  Another thing I like about this palette is the matte shades, super pigmented! Make sure you use a really good base for Smoke to adhere to.  Even using a gel eyeliner, or cream black shadow will really help.  Liquid Liner in Noir.  Brows are from  Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel Espresso and Brow Genius Kit in Brunette.

I wanted to show you the Pixie Lashes from House of Lashes up close.  These are my favorite to wear for a dramatic look as the lashes really compliment the darkness of the colors.  Length and fullness you have it all in 1 package.
