Fall is Here - Fall Inspired Look, Pumpkin Spice

It comes as no surprise that Fall is one of my favorite seasons since I mentioned it recently in my Autumn Tag post.

What can I say? I am a sucker for Fall. I love the weather, the holidays, the food, the family gatherings, pumpkins, apples, the wind, leaves changing color, and so on and so forth.

With the coming of Fall comes yellows, golds, oranges, reds, and browns.

Also it may be time to dust off some of those Fall makeup palettes and put them back in the makeup rotation. My favorite Fall palette is the Fall Festival Palette from Coastal Scents. I don't know if it's just me, but I love themed makeup palettes be it seasons, colors, character inspired, I just like them. To me it offers inspiration in one handy location.

Back to my beloved Fall Festival Palette and beloved it is. It contains mainly shimmery eyeshadows that are highly pigmented. If you are interested in purchasing the palette it is $12.95 from Coastal Scents. Below is the direct link too purchase the palette:

To kickoff the start of Fall I have decided to use this palette all week for my Fall is Here Series. This is the first look in my series entitled Pumpkin Spice. Keep reading to find out how to recreate this look:

I started off my priming my lids with UD Primer Potion and I then applied Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Barely Beige as a base on the lid.

I applied Chamois Nude (1st row, 1st color) on my brow bone.

Next I applied Deep Cantaloupe (2nd row, 2nd color) to the first 3rd of my lid up to the crease.

Then I applied Bright Copper (1st row, 2nd color) to the middle of my lid up to my crease.

Finally I applied Cherry Chocolate (3rd row, 1st color) to the outer corner of my lid and outer crease.

Then just when I thought I was done I blended, blended, blended, applied some more color, and blended some more.

I curled my lashes and applied They're Real Mascara by benefit.

I lined my top lid with L'oreal's Infallible 24 Hr Cream Eyeliner in Espresso.

I lined my bottom lash line with Almay's Intense i-color in Brown Topaz and applied the shadows from the lid in the same order under the eye.

I love this look for Fall. What's your favorite color combination for Fall looks? Have you heard of the Fall Festival Palette from Coastal Scents?
