Holiday gift guide: warm eyeshadow

Blog, The Bella Edit

Ciao!

This season, warm eyeshadow has been the hottest item (pun intended) in the makeup world. This look has completely exploded, meaning there are so many different shades to choose from.

On this list, I’ll have an affordable one, a mini one, the original one, the popular one, the matte one, and the other one.

Also, bare in mind that there are many different types of warm eyeshadow.

  1. Bold, warm shades such as red, orange, and yellow.
  2. True warm shades, featuring lots of warm brown.
  3. Warm reds and pinks

I’ve tried to put in at least one of each type on this list.

Let’s check it out!

October favorites

Blog, Favorites

Ciao!

This October, I’ve continued with my love of orange eyes, nude lips, and general enjoyment of pumpkins.  I’ve really been getting into the fall spirit this year, as I discussed in my fall makeup post.

I’ve continued my setup from last month of doing my makeup at a makeshift vanity (comment below if you’re interested in a full post on it), meaning I’ve been using palettes for weeks in a row. This is a great way to get a feel for a product, and it’s encouraged me to be more creative in getting different looks out of the same palette or mixing and matching palettes.

The matchup: Mermaid makeup

Blog, The Matchup

Ciao!

This Halloween, I’m planning on being a mermaid, mostly because I really wanted to do a fun makeup look. Luckily, most of the makeup is affordable ($20 or less), which is great because I’m not willing to spend a ton of money on blue eyeshadows I likely won’t wear again. In fact, the only items I ordered specifically for this look were from Colourpop.

So keep reading to learn how to get this beautiful mermaid look!

My top picks for fall makeup

Blog, The Bella Edit

Ciao!

Things I love about fall (in order):

  • Pumpkins
  • Dark matte lipstick
  • Pumpkins
  • Sweaters and boots
  • Pumpkins
  • Copper eyeshadow
  • Pumpkins

Clockwise from left: Colourpop yes please palette, Tarte matte lip paint in bestie, Julep feels like velvet duo in cinnamon and spice, Charlotte Tilbury matte revolution in very victoria, Winky Lux double matte whip liquid lipstick in shortcake.

Jokes aside, fall is probably my favorite season for makeup. All of the looks people create draw from the changing leaves and amber scenery and I find they’re much more creative in general.

This list is entirely lipstick and eyeshadow, because that’s what I think of as distinctly fall makeup. Here’s everything I’ve been loving to wear this fall!

Disclaimer: no lipsticks or eyeshadow where harmed by falling off of/into pumpkins in the making of this post.

September favorites

Blog, Favorites

Ciao!

This September, I’ve been reaching into the depths of my makeup stash as I get back into my everyday routine. I’ve been reaching for subtler makeup that looks a little more natural. I’ve found some of my lost favorites in my collection, and I’ve been using things I haven’t reached for in a while.

This past week, I’ve experimented with only using a set amount of makeup (lipstick aside) because I rearranged my makeup area. 2/3s of the products in this post were at my desk this past week.

I’ve been also moving back into my matte liquid lipsticks. I thought I was completely over this trend in the spring, but now I’m loving them much more!

The best natural highlighters

Blog, The Bella Edit

Ciao!

I love highlighters a lot. However, I don’t wear bold highlighters (*cough* BECCA champagne pop *cough*) often, and especially when I’m running late or on doing my makeup in a rush, I don’t have time to blend out a super shocking highlight.

I also wear mostly natural makeup, so these are my favorite highlights I wear on a daily basis for a glowing face. None of these have glitter in them either, which is great!

Quick note: all of these are natural highlights, so they tend to look fairly similar on the face. I would recommend looking through this list and picking one (some of these are palettes if you really want more options) that suits you.

Enjoy!

July Favorites

Ciao!

When I went to organize the products for this post, it literally took me five seconds. All of these products I’ve been using non stop throughout July and I’ve loved them. A few are new to me and I’ve recently got in the last month and the rest are products I’ve had sitting in my collection and have only started to use them this month.
