Holiday gift guide: warm eyeshadow

Blog, The Bella Edit


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!

My top picks for fall makeup

Blog, The Bella Edit


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.

Colourpop + Lush haul!

Blog, Hauls


If you’d told me before I started my blog I’d be ordering from Colourpop, I would’ve said your were out of your mind.

Way back in September (almost a year ago!) I was beginning to get into makeup. I heard about Colourpop for the first time when they were in the news for their… um poorly named sculpting sticks. The line was heavily criticized for it’s lack of diverse colors and their offensive names for the darker colors such as Typo, Dume, and Yikes. You can read more about it here.

I vowed to never order from them, but as time went on I became interested in their products. Every time an influencer mentioned Colourpop, I cringed slightly. I began to feel like I was hating them for a small mistake, something they’d apologized for. So now, a year later I placed an order from them right after the wildly successful launch of their concealers, which have a line of 15 shades.

15 shades isn’t a lot, but it’s progress.

I was super excited and wanted to try a few things without getting anything I didn’t need. So, I sadly passed on the pressed bronzer and highlight and the super shock cheek products.

I also picked up a few things from Lush, one a well loved repurchase and one something new to try. Keep reading to see what I got!
