Keep scrolling for a full list of the products I used to create this whole look.

  • Deepened the crease with Colourpop shadow in Paradox (matte cranberry shade)
  • Deepened the outer corners with Makeup Geek shadow in Bitten (deep red shade)
  • Applied a metallic copper shade from the Morphe 35O palette to the inner half of my lids (shade on the very bottom right corner of the palette)
  • Added a dark brown shade to the outer corners to add more depth to the eyes.

  • I mixed the Maybelline Master Chrome in Molten Gold with Laura Geller’s Gilded Honey for my highlight
  • Filled in my brows with a dark brown shade from the Morphe palette

LIPS:

  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Bordeaux

 

MOTD: Soft Purple Smokey Eye + Pumpkin Lippie

This look incorporates color, but it is toned down enough to be wearable in the daytime or nighttime.


For the eyes, I used the purple shades from the Morphe 35B palette and focused on created a soft wash of color rather than building up the intensity. I also smoked out a darker purple on the top and bottom lashline to make my eye color stand out more.

The lipstick is a new matte shade from Maybelline in the shade Raw Chocolate and I am obsessed with it! I don’t own any other shade quite like this one and I think the warm orange undertones go really well with the eye makeup.

My face makeup and routine is pretty much the same as in my other MOTD posts, so be sure to check them out to see more details!

Hot Product of the Week: Palladio Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks 

Welcome back to another Hot Product of the Week! This week, I have been loving the Palladio Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks in the shades Tapestry (left- deep purple) and Boucle (right-dark brown toned nude). I got these at Ulta and they were around $5 each. 

Keep reading to see a full review! ​

I have never bought anything from this brand before, but when I saw that these were a velvet matte finish rather than a full matte finish, I wanted to give them a try to see if they would be less drying. 

Overall, I am LOVING the formula and color of lipsticks and really want to go back to get more shades! The darker shade was a little streaky, but not hard to work with at all and can be corrected really easily with another layer. I find that these did not dry out my lips at all since they are not meant to be a flat matte finish, but they dry down really well and did not transfer. 

The only thing I do not like about this product is the fact that the color you see on the outside is kind of deceiving as to what the actual color is. Just looking at outside of the packaging, Tapestry (the dark purple shade) looked like a rich chocolate brown and when I got home and opened it, I was really surprised to see that it was not brown at all! Same thing with the shade Boucle. It looked like it was going to be a pretty pinky Nude color and actually turned out to be a dark brown nude. Even though the colors fonnot really match what they look on the outside, I still am obsessed with the shades and would have still bought them anyway. 

Overall, I think these liquid lippies are amazing and for such an inexpensive price, you can’t beat it! 

MOTD: Green & Purple Fall Smokey Eye 

I love recreating different makeup looks and this one created by Melissa Alatorre really stood out to me! I think that using the deep plum and green shades make this a gorgeous fall look while also incorporating color.

FACE

  • Becca Ever Matte Poreless Perfecting Primer
  • Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation in warm nude
  • Maybelline Better Skin concealer in light/medium
  • Set my concealer with the NYX HD pressed powder in banana
  • Benefit Hoola bronzer
  • Benefit Rockateur blush

  • Morphe 35b palette (I cannot put this thing down- OBSESSED!)
  • Applied one coat of Essence Lash Princess false lashes mascara to my top and bottom lashes
  • Applied a pair of Kiss false lashes in the style Shy- my absolute faves

BROWS & LIPS

  • For my brows I fluffed them up using the “soap brow” trend (if you don’t know what this is, I posted a quick tutorial of it on my Instagram @marinaleebeauty). Basically you run soap through your brows and it makes them stay in place in any style ALL DAY.
  • I filled them in softly using the ABH Dipbrow pomade in medium brown
  • For lips, I applied the Milani lipstick in Bahama Beige and used NYX Butter Gloss in fortune cookie overtop.

Hope y’all enjoyed this look!

Cranberry & Gold Halo Eyes

Check out my Instagram @marinaleebeauty to see a quick tutorial on how I created this gorgeous fall eye look!

For my eyes, I used the Colourpop Super Shock Shadows in Central Perk (crease), Drift (inner and outer corners), and KathleenLights (center). For my lips, I lined them using the Rimmel lip liner in Natural then filled them in using the Colourpop Satin Matte lipstick in Too Lips. Lastly, I just dabbed a little bit of the Wet N Wild ColorIcon lipgloss in the shade Ring My Bellbottoms (this is from their new limited edition fall collection).

Greensmoke: Fall Makeup Look

I have another Fall inspired makeup look for y’all today! Typically Fall makeup consists of a warm eyeshadow looks and deep vampy lips, but I wanted to mix it up and add a subtle hint of color. The focus of this makeup look revolves around the MAC eyeshadow in the shade Greensmoke. It is a gorgeous mossy green shade with gold reflects that I think goes perfectly with a mauve lip color.

  • I used the Maybelline lipstick in the shade Mauve It (satin matte finish).

Copper Eyes & Brown Lips: Fall Makeup Look

Even though it is still summer, Fall makeup and fashion trends are popping up everywhere and I couldn’t wait! I love dark lip colors, especially chocolate brown shades, so I decided to pair this with a shimmery copper eye look. I did use, yet again, my Morphe 35O palette on my eyes. I know I probably over-use this gem of a palette but it has every shadow I could ever need to create a warm toned makeup look for Fall. I also used the same “draping” blush technique that I explained in yesterday’s post.

I hope y’all enjoy this look and are inspired to start playing around with Fall makeup as well!

Products Used:

Face

  • I primed my face with my Murad Oil Control Mattifier (this is meant to be more of a moisturizer for oily skin, but it works really well as a primer for me).
  • For foundation I used the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation.
  • For concealer I used the MAC Pro Longwear concealer. I also used this to prime my eyelids.
  • I set my face and concealer with the Coty Air-Spun powder.
  • I used the Makeup Revolution matte blush in Nude to “drape” my face. “Draping” is a technique where you skip out on your typical contour shades and contour with a neutral blush. I have a full post all about this technique if you would like to check it out!
  • I highlighted my cheekbones using the Essence Pure Nude highlighter.

Eyes

  • For my entire eye look I used, of course, the Morphe 35O palette.
  • I did not apply an actual eyeliner, instead I just used a dark brown from the palette and an angled brush to smoke out my top lashline slightly.
  • I applied a couple of coats of my Covergirl Super Size lengthening mascara.

Brows & Lips

  • For brows I used the Anastasia Brow Wiz in Dark Brown and then set my brows in place using the Essence Make Me Brow brow mascara in a dark brown shade as well.
  • For my lips, I lined them using the Essence lip liner in the shade All Natural.
  • My lipstick is a deep, chocolatey brown shade- L’Oreal lipstick in Spice.
