Obsession – warm cozy neutrals

Hello my loves!

As the fall season began, I am all about the warm neutral tones. Don’t get me wrong, I am a neutral girl all year long, but I love fall because of those deep, dark, warm, cozy colors with a pop of dark red or berry both in make-up and fashion. Today I wanted to share my current most used make-up product that deliver such vibe.

I love Z Palette – I have a large one where I keep all of my depotted eyeshadows, but this small one is my favorite because it is easier to carry around and it is just the right size. It fits all the eyeshadows one make-up look needs. I mostly use MakeUp Geek eyeshadows because they are affordable and their quality is amazing!

Illamasqua Pure Pigments are one of those products that you fall in love instantly. They are described as: ‘Pure Pigment is made to be played with. A metallic, high-shine, pure-colour powder that highlights eyes, cheeks and brows.’

Furore is beautiful. It is such a multitasker – can be used both as an eyeshadow and a highlighter. I would describe it as muted peachy /champagne shade. And Ore is a dark, metallic bronze / brown shade, very hard to explain.  I am not a big fan of the packaging of these pigments because it can easily get very messy, but I keep using them because both Furore and Ore are incredibly stunning and sparkly.

I have mentioned Guerlain Bronzer before in my previous posts. I use it whole year long because it is not too warm, not too cold. On my skin tone looks just right. And this Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzing powder is not actually a bronzer – I use it as a blush. Nice rosy-berry, hard to explain color 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this short, but sweet post of mine. If you have any questions about the mentioned products or you wish to share your current favorites, don’t hesitate to drop your comment below.

Until my next blog post…

Love,

    I love this palette you had chosen, the colors are nice and pigmented. I love warm cozy colors especially in autumn time and how they look on my blue eyes. Nice picks!
