Pumpkin Spice Makeup Tutorial!

I wanted to do a look using the Jaclyn Hill Morphe palette for Fall! I get a lot of comments and messages asking to do a look using the shades in this palette because so many people own it and love it! The hype is real, I’m obsessed with mine and use it on a daily basis. It has the perfect array of neutrals and bright colors.

Warm-toned smokey eyes are my favorite to create because they give your eyes definition, without being too intense. There is something about combining these matte shades of brown, orange, red, and yellow that translates as “more natural” than the traditional silver and black smokey eyes. I would personally wear this eye look during the daytime, but I think it would look great for nighttime too! You could even go extra glam by adding some gold glitter onto the center of the lid, falsies and a more intense winged eyeliner!

  1. I always start off by priming my eyelids with the Urban Decay Primer Potion in “Eden” to cancel out any redness and conceal veins. This will also prevent your eyeshadow from creasing throughout the day and allow the shades to appear more vibrant. I apply a light amount of translucent setting powder over the lids to help the shadows we place on top to blend easier!
  2. I always use a matte, light brown eyeshadow in my crease. Even when I’m rushing, I will still blend a little of my bronzer to lightly define the shape of my eyes. I applied “Silk Creme” in windshield wiping motions with a fluffy blending brush. With the same brush, I buffed “Butter” right underneath to add a layer of dimension.
  3. I took the color “Pukey” on a more precise blending brush and concentrated the color on my outer V. I made sure to blend it into the two other shades in my crease, but tried to focus it mainly on my outer corner to create a cat eye effect.
  4. “Hunts” is one of my favorite shades in this entire palette! On a tapered blending brush, I brought this color on the outer third of my eye.
  5. I used “Creamsicle” as my lid shade! I was so afraid of using a true yellow color on my eyes, but I think this one is actually super wearable and flattering! Taking a flat shader brush, I pressed this color on the inner third of my eye and lightly blended it with a clean, fluffy brush into the middle section for a seamless transition into “Hunts.”
  6. On a detailed blending brush, I patted “Jacz” on the outer edge in a V shape. I made sure to keep this darker color lower on the eyelid and didn’t bring it up too much into the crease.
  7. I drew my standard winged eyeliner and then decided that the look wasn’t as dramatic as I liked, so I took “Chip” on a precise angled brush and patted it on the outer edge, layering it close to the winged eyeliner. I took another clean blending brush and lightly buffed it into the rest of my outer crease colors.
  8. I just used some regular mascara for my lashes, but I think this would’ve looked amazing with falsies! My favorite are the Ardell Demi-Wispies Natural and I love the House of Lashes glue!
  9. On my lower lash line, I blended “Pukey” and “Jacz” and added “Chip” only on the outer edge for a gradient, eye-opening effect.

I circled the shades I used in the palette, just in case you didn’t know them by name and accidentally threw away the plastic insert that labeled them!

The additional makeup products I used on the rest of my face!

Anddddd that’s it! So easy right?! I really love how the eye look turned out and I definitely think it’s easy to recreate! It gives me pumpkin spice, Fall makeup vibes and that’s what I crave all October long! Do you own the Jaclyn Hill palette?! Are you equally as obsessed with it?! I’m already thinking of ideas for my next few blog posts and I would love to know what you want to see next! Feel free to leave your suggestions, I always respond to comments and would love to talk to you! I hope you had a great Sunday and enjoy the week ahead, thanks for reading!

The Best Affordable Fall Eyeshadow Palette! 

If you have been searching high and low for the perfect Fall eyeshadow palette, well look no further! The Morphe 35O – 35 Color Nature Glow eyeshadow palette is only $22.99! So you are getting 35 richly pigmented, shimmery and matte eye shadows that are all warm-toned, Fall shades. I find this palette is amazing for both daytime and dramatic looks since it has a variety of light and dark colors. Also there a couple of eyeshadows in this palette that give off an intense foiled effect that you can usually only find in high-end eyeshadow formulas. If you are just starting out with makeup and looking to build your collection, then you should definitely purchase this palette! Morphe also has a lot of other eyeshadow palettes on their website that are all matte or cool toned or neon if you aren’t into this particular one!        

   

When I began swatching these shadows, I realized just how pigmented they are and buttery soft! I find that it is so hard to find affordable matte shadows that aren’t chalky. However, these are so soft and blend out like a dream so you can’t go wrong! The shimmery shades are just as beautiful and give your eyes just the perfect amount of definition. There are so many gorgeous all-over-the-lid shades to help you achieve an easy, quick eye look. As I mentioned before, you’ll see in the swatches that there are a few foiled shades that are so bright and glittery! I love these eyeshadows because they look like a loose glitter pigment, but they’re 10 x easier to apply since they’re in a pressed pan and don’t have any annoying fall out! Here are some swatches row-by-row!






I wanted to mention that there are always coupon codes floating around to save even more money on Morphe makeup! I always use the code “JACLYN” for an extra 10% off! Also since these are only available online (since I live in MD and not California) you do have to purchase online at MorpheBrushes.com or click the link here to shop the 35O palette directly! I want to do another blog post on my favorite Morphe brushes because they are really high quality and very affordable! I know the 35O palette is so popular and loved by many, but I want to try out another palette and see if it’s just as good! What is your favorite eyeshadow palette by Morphe? What brushes do you love using? Let me know because I would love to try those out!

Favorite Fall Lip Colors!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, “Exorcism,” $20. M.A.C Satin Lipstick, “Rebel,” $17. M.A.C Matte Lipstick, “Diva,” $17. Bite Beauty Matte Lip Creme, “Aubergine,” $24. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick, “Craft,” $20.


Berry toned lipsticks are my favorite way to turn any simple makeup look into a full Fall themed glam. I have found my absolute favorites after trying out various formulas and shades over the years. I have a medium-olive skin tone, however I know these colors look absolutely beautiful on many other skin tones. As you can see in the swatches, these are all very berry-burgundy toned lip shades, but I personally see a difference in the colors! I’m in no way suggesting you need each shade to achieve a Fall lip look; I am just trying to show you different formulas, undertones and brands to help you determine which one may be a good fit for you!      

    


First up we have the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade, “Exorcism.” This is probably the darkest lip color I own, but I absolutely love wearing it for a fun night out! I was gifted this product by my beauty-loving cousin Cora and I am so happy she sent me this because I don’t know if I would’ve been brave enough to purchase this on my own! In the tube, the color is a bit intimidating, but once applied onto your lips, it blends out into a deep brick red shade, with a hint of a plummy undertone. The formula is super pigmented and you only need one swipe of this to cover your entire lips. It is SUPER matte, so I would definitely recommend wearing a lip primer underneath if you tend to have dry lips. This lasted for 6 hours straight on me without fading or a need for touch ups, so it is definitely perfect for going out! 

     

Next is probably the most wearable shade in the bunch, M.A.C’s Satin Lipstick in the shade, “Rebel.” This is by far my most worn shade in the Fall because it transitions easily between day and night makeup looks. It is fairly natural for being a berry colored lipstick and I get compliments from women of every age when wearing! I love that this formula is a satin because it moisturizes my lips throughout the colder months. I think this color is a perfect violet-toned berry shade that you can pair with really natural looks or dramatic makeup. Rebel lipstick may not last as long as some of the liquid lipsticks I am mentioning, however it does leave behind a beautiful stain on your lips that I personally love! 

      

M.A.C’s Matte Lipstick in the shade, “Diva” is very bold with a deep burgundy undertone. In the swatch, I only swiped on two coats, but you can build this color to look even darker and more vampy. This is a color I would typically wear during nighttime because it is super bold and can be very attention-grabbing during the day, but that is just how I personally rock it! This is a matte formula, which I prefer in super dark shades because I don’t want it to bleed and transfer onto any parts of my face, which can tend to happen with creamier formulas. It is super long-lasting and is a good alternative to a liquid lipstick which can be overly drying. I would highly recommend lining your lips with a darker lip liner before applying this color to ensure it doesn’t bleed outside of your natural lip line and looks as clean as possible! 

       

I had to mention the Bite Beauty Matte Lip Creme, in the color, “Aubergine” because it not only is a stunning mauve-toned violet shade, but the formula is one of the best I’ve tried in a matte lipstick. The packaging provides a super precise tip, so you can basically line your lips and fill them in all with the same product. Plus, Bite Beauty uses all food-grade ingredients, meaning if you accidentally lick your lips or eat while wearing this lipstick, you can rest assured you aren’t ingesting any toxic stuff! Since the exact name of this product is a “matte lip creme” I will say that isn’t a true matte that dries down to a velvety finish, but I personally don’t mind the extra moisture that creates a semi-matte look! I feel like this would be a super “safe” shade to transition into your Fall makeup routine if you have never experimented with berry toned lip colors!

       

Lastly, I had to shout out the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in “Craft.” On my skin tone, this color turns out nothing like it looks in the tube. When I first bought this product, I thought it would be a pretty close dupe to M.A.C “Rebel,” however it is totally different and definitely has much more of a purple undertone. I would consider this shade to be on the more dramatic side of the spectrum. It’s formula is super pigmented and very matte. It is a cool-toned berry shade, which differs from the others in my collection in a good way! I think this shade pairs beautifully with cool-toned, mauve eyeshadow when I am going for that on-trend, monochromatic makeup look. This is a super drying formula that I always have to wear a lip primer or Chapstick underneath. The formula applies in a way that you can get super close to your lip line for a very precise application, which is convenient if you don’t have a matching lip liner on hand! 

   

As you can tell, I am mildly obsessed with these colors during the Fall months and have an excuse to own each shade and find different ways to categorize them! I feel like this is an essential product if you want to look like you put effort into your makeup look, but don’t want to do a full-face glam! Just swipe on some berry toned lipstick, grab a pumpkin spice latte and you’re good to go! Thank you for reading this post and feel free to leave me a comment about all the Fall lip colors you’re loving this season!
