Makeup Revolution Warm Makeup Look

Makeup Revolution Neutrals 2

While I love experimenting with makeup, I always come back to a classic warm makeup look. My annual Cinco de Mayo party seemed like a great occasion to rock one. For this makeup look I decided to try out the Makeup Revolution Neutrals 2 Palette that I hauled a few weeks ago from Orabel Beauty. It may seem a bit risky to try a palette for the first time before a party but I had full confidence that this palette wouldn’t let me down. Continue reading

Warm & Dramatic Makeup Look

Hi guys! I posted a picture of this warm & dramatic makeup look on Instagram on Saturday as it was what I wore out that evening. Since the photo seemed to be well received I thought I would share more details on that look with you today! Last Saturday I was going out to celebrate a birthday so I thought I would take a stab at the ever dreaded winged eye liner which I have about a 50% success rate with. After a bit of tweaking and evening, I managed to pull off wings that were relatively similar. When I do winged liner, my preference is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner as that style of applicator seems to work best for me. Continue reading

MOTD: Warm Eye Look

Hi guys! Yesterday was Family Day in Canada so I decided to take the day off to spend the day with my husband and post today instead. If I had posted I was going to do a MOTD post, but I didn’t even end up wearing much makeup anyways.

I had purchased a red knitted tunic on Sunday which I was planning on wearing today since my husband and I have an event to go to tonight and it really made me want to play with warm eye shadow. I also think that now that my hair isn’t red anymore I feel this compulsive need to add more warmth to my look. Maybe this is because I’m so cool-toned? Who knows?

Warm Look Using the Kat Von D Monarch Palette

P1010356

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share with you one of my favourite warm looks to do using the Kat Von D Monarch Palette. I wear this look all year round but it is particularly great for autumn! I got my hair dyed today so I thought a nice warm look would be perfect for freshly dyed red hair. The Monarch Palette is one of my favourites. The shadows are all very pigmented, buttery smooth and blendable. All the things I look for in a palette. Since the shadows are so pigmented you do have to use a light hand with a few of them.

Here is what the palette looks like, and some swatches:

Morphe 35W Palette

P1010015

Hi guys! I recently acquired the Morphe 35W Palette. I purchased it from HauteLook but you can also get it on the Morphe website as well (where it is currently on sale). It is a beautiful 35 colour warm based palette that is perfect for fall looks. The main reason I went for this palette was to tide me over while I wait for the 35O to come back in stock. With that said, I have been enjoying this palette immensely and am glad that I purchased it. I think I have been using it almost every day since I got it since it is so versatile.

Here is the look that I did with the palette….

This is a great palette as it has such a variety of warm shades in it. The possibilities for different looks seems endless. The shimmery shades seem to be the most pigmented, but I have had no complaints with any of the shades since I started using the palette. I definitely plan on purchasing more Morphe palettes in the future based on how great this one is.

What is your favourite warm look for fall? Let me know in the comments down below!
