4 Must Have Makeup Palettes

Happy Makeup Monday! I hope that your liner is winged to the gods and your lipstick is on point. Today I am sharing my four favorite makeup palettes that I can’t live without! They are perfect for fall and have a multi-purpose use!

  1. The Kay Von D Alchemist Highlight Pallet. This pallet is an intense highlighting one, but it is the perfect inner corner highlight for the eyes! It makes you look like your eyes are glowing.
  2. The Urban Decay Naked Heat Pallet. I’m sure that you have heard of this bad boy before, especially if you are a makeup lover like myself. This gorgeous pallet has all of the warm tone shadows that you will ever need for fall. It is seriously the best!
  3. The Morphe X Kathleen Lights Eyeshadow Pallet. This little baby is a dream come true. It has a nice mix between cool and warm tone shadows. So many different looks can be created with this pallet.
  4. The Tartelette in the Bloom Pallet. This little guy is your perfect everyday eyeshadow pallet, but if you have dark hair like me, a couple of these shades can double as eyebrow powders. I love a twofer!

You can never have enough makeup palettes!

Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial 

My first attempt at a step by step eye shadow tutorial.. not bad right? Hello everyone! I promised more makeup posts, so here you go! 

This look is perfect for a party, special event, or just because! I hope that you enjoy! 

The first thing that I do before any eyeshadow look, is prime my eyelids. This helps the eyeshadow stay longer and creates a nice clean base to start with. 

Transition shades are always a good step. Light browns or skin tone eyeshadow are good transition colors. This step makes it easier to transition from a lighter shade of eyeshadow, into a darker shade. I make sure and blend the light brown like it’s no ones business. 

Once that light brown is all blended, I went in with a deep cranberry color to blend right in with that first shade. I cannot tell you how important it is to blend. Keep on blending! 

The step that helps create this smokey eye, is the dark outer corner. On a very small blending brush, I picked up some black eyeshadow and slowly started blending that into the outer V of the eye. I am making sure to take my time on this part, black eyeshadow can be very tricky to work with. 

Once that black is all blended to my liking,  I went in with a light, shimmer berry color and packed that onto the lid. 

To brighten up this look a little, I went in with a highlight shade and placed that right under my brow bone. This just gives the smokey eye a little bit of something extra. Another trick to opening up the eyes a little, is to add the highlight shade to the inner corners of the eyes. 

To balance out my eyes, on a blending brush, I used that same cranberry shade that I used in my crease,  and ran it under my lash line. I also added some black eyeliner in my waterline. 

After that was all completed, I threw on some mascara and a little highlight on my cheeks.  This is my finished look! I hope that you enjoyed it! Smokey eyes are my favorite looks to create. 
The pallet that I used for this tutorial is the Morphe X Kathleen Lights Pallet.
