Five Things I Like: Cosmetics and Color

All my favorites this time are about color! Mostly in the form of makeup! My favorite! Let's get to it:

I've been fantasizing about Urban Decay's Electric Palette for the past few weeks and caved in earlier today. I'm especially enchanted by Slowburn, the neon orange shade on top, but really all the shades inspire me. For the most part I'd like to use these wet as bold eyeliner.

Another product I'm excited to use is Stila Magnificent Metals Eyeliner in Gunmetal. In person, this product has a very cool toned, slate-like cast almost verging on purple. However, true to the name, this liner does look almost like molten gunmetal. During the holidays, I will use this on my upper lids with a very heavy, only slightly winged line.

Berry, plum, bordeaux, oxblood or whatever you call deep shades of red, it looks alluring on lips. Last year I discovered that MAC's Deepest Wish with lipglass in bold and brash layered on top creates a gorgeously dimensional, jewel-like mouth (photos coming up soon on Instagram).

On a similar vein, I'm digging Dark Magenta Combined with Teal. This doesn't appeal to me as a good makeup combo so much as for furnishings and clothes, especially if mixed with sage green and/or pink.

Seen here on foxy Yolandi Vi$$er, White Eyeliner also strikes my fancy this fall. I am using Rimmel's white eyeliner and/or MAC's Avalanche with a wet angled brush. 

This fall I feel completely reinvigorated about my wardrobe and about makeup in general, especially on the eyes. I have a hard time getting good pictures these days, but I do post outfits and makeup weekly on Instagram so check me out!
