5 Stunning Eyeshadows For That Crimson Autumn Look


Just like every other season, autumn comes with its own scents, looks, and colors. You step outside, take in the cool, crisp air, and admire the leaves beautifully changing colors on the trees. The deep reds, oranges, and browns are so gorgeous that wearing them on our eyes is what any makeup lover needs during this time of the year.

What’s more enchanting than smoking out your eyes with rich shades of reds or deep tones of browns? The colors of autumn are inviting and wearing any of its shades will have you blending right into the atmosphere; that’s why we need them all.

Cosmetic brands almost never let the fall season slip away so easily. By taking advantage of the gorgeous season, brands turn the fall colors into shadows and complement these colors with even more charming shades, creating the perfect palette to wear throughout the coming months. There are tons of palettes to choose from, but we picked out our top five favorites for you to consider.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette, $42, sephora.com

It’s clear that almost everyone knows about this palette and just how amazing it is. Anastasia Beverly Hills came out with this essential eyeshadow collection with 14 shades in neutral to berry tones. From earthy yellows to shimmery golds with a metallic finish, these shadows are high-pigmented — they are also fade-resistant.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette, $54, sephora.com

If fiery reds are what you’re looking for, then this palette is what you need. The Naked Heat palette from Urban Decay features 12 amber-hued neutrals including warm browns, burnt oranges, and rich siennas. Smoke out your eyes with any of their smooth red-brown mattes or glimmering coppers and deep bronzes. Each shade blends precisely with a velvet texture and ultimate staying power, making the perfect sunset or crimson eye look.

Colourpop Yes, Please! Pressed Powder Shadow Palette, $16, colourpop.com

For Colourpop’s first ever fixed 12-pan palette, it’s stunning. The palette features the hottest shades from brick red to pale peachy nude to deep reddish brown. Each shade is highly pigmented and applies on evenly, feels ultra-velvety, and leaves your skin silky. Whether the finish is matte or metallic, they will always blend out perfectly to achieve smokey warm tones.

Morphe 35OM – 35 Color Matte Nature Glow, $22.99, morphebrushes.com

If this palette doesn’t scream autumn, then nothing does. Morphe’s Color Matte Nature Glow says it all with their warm-toned shades resembling colors straight from a forest during fall. Every shade is creamy, highly pigmented, and blends together perfectly. Also, each color is a matte finish for those deep smokey looks.

Juvia’s Place Nubian Eyeshadow Palette, $28, juviasplace.com

Juvia’s Place is well-known for their amazing eyeshadow palettes. Their Nubian palette features four transition mattes and eight shimmery pearl-textured colors that are breathtaking to wear during this season. The colors on the palette are essential neutral colors such as sandy nude, rich brown, and their reddish brown shimmer finish. Just like their other palettes, this one is highly pigmented and blends flawlessly.

4 Cult Makeup Brands You Must Try


Even as a beauty enthusiast, I find myself overwhelmed by all the beauty brands out there with their cute packaging, eye-catching pigmentation, and tug-at-your-heartstrings advertising. Or sometimes I find myself dying to try it all and feeling indecisive over where to begin. Let’s be honest: we all don’t have a bottomless wallet, so even as beauty lovers we have to be smart with our purchases. Over the years, I’ve learned to do research before making my purchases, and it’s not only proven to be enjoyable, but it’s also eliminated buyer’s remorse. To encourage you to do the same, we’ve put together a list of the cult makeup brands you must try. From one beauty lover to another, we share in our victories.

Jeffree Star ($18)
The fearless and ever-so-glamorous Jeffree Star shares over-the-top pigmentations and noteworthy textures. Even our trustworthy beauty gurus (Jaclyn Hill, for example) believe that Jeffree’s velour liquid lipsticks in shades like “Androgyny,” “Celebrity Skin,” and “Unicorn Blood” are a huge hype and with good reason. Earning stripes in the beauty industry, Jeffree Star has proven to be an extremely talented artist by creating outlandish yet highly professional and beautiful products with great pigmentation, substantial size, and comfortable wear as you would hope from any higher-end makeup brand.

When you don’t know where else to go, you’re guaranteed that Anastasia Beverly Hills will have your back. Whether it’s pigmented lip glosses, eye shadows, or brows, we’d think that Anastasia is Queen Bee of the beauty world. At this rate, who are we to argue? With defined brows still creating a powerful force in the beauty industry, we suggest trying the signature brand for “your brows, but better”: the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz.

Makeup Geek ($6)
Our beautiful Marlena! Her products are worth every penny, particularly her regular, foiled, and duochrome eye shadows. These beauties are extremely affordable, and the color payoff is more than you can expect of some of the over-priced, higher-end individual eye shadow pans and palettes (yes, we said it!). Being a makeup artist and beauty lover herself, you can trust that Marlena will only give you the best of the best. A few of our well-loved Makeup Geek eye shadows include “Shimma, Shimma,” “Crème Brulee,” “Cocoa Bear,” and “Peach Smoothie.”

ColourPop Cosmetics ($6)
ColourPop may have taken a little time popping into the scene of makeup, but once this line did, it came out with more than its lippie sticks ah-blazing. Numerous YouTubers such as ClothesEncounters (Jenn Im), Kathleen Lights, and Manny MUA have collaborated with this awesome brand, creating products for the lips and eyes. Similar to Makeup Geek’s reasonable prices and great pigmentation, ColourPop is a brand to behold. We advise that you check out the brand as a whole, but what kind of beauty lovers would we be if we didn’t mention our favorite lippies from the shop, too? (This is not the makeup junkie speaking; we swear.) A few of their signature Ultra Satin Lips that we adore include “Echo Park” and “Frick n Frack.” Not to mention, have you checked out their simple but adorable packaging and sweet, genuine cards? I don’t know about you, but it makes me feel like a beauty queen.

Maintaining Your Eyebrows


brushingbrowsGetting your eyebrows on point seems to be a meticulous task as much as it is waiting for them to grow out. Our brows have both their good and bad days, much like our hairdos. Sometimes there is no telling how they will look or come out in the morning. In order to maintain a brow that is shaped to your unique face, there are some easy tips and tricks you can try, with nothing too crazy or expensive that will have you looking for rare ingredients or opening up your wallet each week. Maintaining your eyebrows can be as simple as changing up your hairstyle!
Go Natural
Creating the perfect shape to your eyebrows is a myth in the beauty world. Eyebrows are not meant to be perfect; in fact, everyone’s eyebrows are not symmetrical at all. Instead, they are just two fraternal twins sharing the same placement above your eyes. Don’t worry about trying to make them even or super similar! Natural brows are beautiful all on their own. Just let them grow out in their glory, and, if need be, there are ways you can tame those little hairs into obedient strands.
Another popular choice that has risen in favoritism is threading. The perfection of threading has been practiced for many years. It originated in India and has been passed along to beauty bars worldwide. It is done with a thin thread usually in the form of cotton that is double stranded and twisted in the process. Your unwanted hairs are plucked by the thread in a series of quick rolling methods. It removes the hair at its follicle, leaving you with bold results that will last for months. This option leaves your brows more defined and appears less harsh to the skin as well.
Waxing is a two to three week occurrence for your brows to undergo if you choose this option. It is meant to clean your brows up from the extra hair surrounding the shape of them and even take away that impending unibrow we all can get close to having. Don’t be shy, girl. We all get that “almost” look, especially when allowing our brows to grow out a little bit thicker. A hot wax is used over the hairs that need to be gotten rid of, followed by a strip of wax paper that is then put over them to remove the unwanted hairs. The downside to waxing is that it may leave your skin a bit red and irritated for a couple of hours afterwards. However, once that subsides, you’ll be left with brows made to show off to the world.
Stretching out the results from a wax or thread job can be done all on your own in the form of plucking. Plucking isn’t as precise as the other two procedures, but it does get the job done and keeps your eyebrows from turning into an uncontrollable mess. When doing so, make sure to brush over them with an eyebrow brush in the direction they are growing; this will help point out the hairs that are out of place and need to go. When plucking them, make sure to only pluck any hairs that appear to be growing around your shape; remove them in the same direction they are growing for an easier hold. Remember not to get pluck crazy, girls!

Once your brows are shaped out, there is the option of filling them in with an eyebrow pencil or shadow. Filling your brows in helps them stand out more as the frame to your face. You can even experiment with the shape of your brows, which can change up your look dramatically! A more arched brow can give you a sexy look, while a straighter brow can make you appear much younger. Some top tools of choice in creating full brows that can always be switched up have made it on here in the brands of Benefit, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Too Faced, and Whitening Lightening.
