Drugstore Fall eyeshadow palettes you need!

Drugstore Fall eyeshadow palettes you need!

Drugstore Fall Eyeshadow Palettes that won't break the bank but will get you in the spirit :)

Hello again everyone !

Today I'm bringing you my two favourite drugstore eyeshadow palettes for the fall time! They have a lot of great dupes for higher end palettes or palettes that can be hard to get your hands on if you live in the land of no shipping (Canada) like I do!

Okay so first things first my go to eyeshadow look is always a red smokey eye with a pop of copper in the centre of the lid, and to achieve this without owning the Morphe 35O palette or the ABH Modern Renaissance I opt for the Makeup Revolution New-trals vs Neutrals palette. If you have green eyes you seriously NEED this palette, actually if you have eyes in general you need this. I have so many high end palettes but this is the one I always use because the shadow colours are beautiful and they blend so well and have good pigmentation for any level of shadow not just drugstore. It's such a well priced palette like the quality is so amazing for the price and I can not say enough great things. I purchased it while I visited England but they have an online store with world wide shipping and it's now sold at ULTA!

Okay enough ranting now let's get down to business. This palette will set you back a 10.00$ US if purchased at ULTA which is an absolute bargin.

Palette is pictured below ! (How stunning I know) p.s looks very true to colour and was taken in natural lighting without flash
Palette includes a double ended brush that works quite nicely!

Below I have swatched some of my favourite shades from the palette to give you an idea of how pigmented they are and how the colours swatch and will apply to the eyes

These shades are amazing for anytime of year but especially for fall looks they are perfect for that pumpkin spice burnt orange vibe everyone seems to love.

Next up on the affordable palettes you need for fall is Wet n Wild 8 Pan Palette in Comfort Zone. They have a bunch of beautiful colours in here and the one duo chrome is almost a dupe for Macs shade blue brown. Being a student means affordable makeup is very near and dear my heart because I am always balling on a budget. Below is a picture of the palette and it retails for 8.00$ US at Walmart but I got mine for 5.00$ because Wet n Wild is constantly 40% off at RiteAid and CVS! So keep your eyes pealed for those deals.

Top Row of swatches is the Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette and bottom row is the Makeup Revolution Palette

As you can see above the colours swatch beautifully! Both palettes do include a sort of chalky sparkly black but it can still be worked with. The green shade is my favourite for fall looks and the blueish silver shade in the palette is actually a duo chrome shift which switches to a reddish brown just like Macs shade Blue brown.

Hope you try these palettes out for the fall! Thank you for baring with me as I try and perfect a blogging format. I will post about my other drugstore favourites such as lip products in my next blog post! Let me know if you'd like to see that :)?

OOTD Two Piece Sets! & Transitioning Forals to the Fall Time

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to my very first blog post and OOTD post about two piece sets and how to transition florals into the Fall, I hope you enjoy!

This summer and going into early fall I have been loving florals and matching two piece sets. I love how versatile they can be as you can wear them separate or together or even layered with other pieces for completely different looks.

The outfit below is from New Look, and this is what I wore on a weekend trip to Toronto island about 2 weeks ago. As it was warm out this day I just wore the two piece, but if i was to style this for school in the fall Canadian weather we get I would pair it with a black leather jacket and grey suede booties for an edgier and warmer look. But if you don't want to go the leather jacket route I think a Army green bomber jacket would look nice over top and pull it into the fall season by breaking up all of the white going on! Something maybe like the one pictured below(which is from ASOS if you were wondering)!

Palm Trees in Toronto

Suggested jacket pairing!

What I love about this is the print and the wrap style of the skirt and blouse, very flattering on the figure! I also love how even though it is a crop top and skirt set my entire stomach isn't out for all of Toronto to see. Which means I can also get away with wearing this to work if i pair it with a nice blazer or jacket.

  •  The mini pink bag is Steve Madden from TJ Maxx (for 20.00$ what a steal I know)
  •  Matching skirt and shirt is from NewLook
  •  Strappy brown heeled sandals are from DSW (purchased about a year ago)
  • Grey Fluff Pom Pom on bag is also from TJ Maxx for about 6.00$ and I'm pretty sure they still have them so if you like it go check TJ!

I tried to keep this short and sweet! I hope you enjoyed and if you have any questions please ask away I'd love to hear from you :) I am so happy to finally be getting started on this blog!
