Makeup has never been so big. As soon as you look at social media, you’ll be bombarded with videos of all different kinds of girls and guys showing you their makeup tricks through a fun tutorial full of bloopers, spots, and all. The world has seemed to open up about their morning and evening routines, as once upon a time they would have been kept a secret so no one would know how they did this sorcery! But thank goodness the Queens and Kings of makeup have shared their secrets with all of us, and aren’t embarrassed by showing us their true face behind it all. Now you can see spots, scarring, pigmentation, and undereye circles – and exactly what you need to cover them up. While also showing the world that we all have our own issues and areas that we don’t like, or make us feel embarrassed and insecure.
On the catwalk this autumn it’s all about the earthy tones, rich textures, and orange hues, which means that makeup tones that are on-trend will be similar. When it comes to makeup, each year the on-trend looks for each season change slightly, depending what the colour of the season is. Of course, that being said, each year it is berry tones that take over when it comes to lipsticks, but that tends to be the only part of autumnal makeup that stays the same. When it comes to eyeshadow looks, trends tend to change each year.
To help you ensure that you stay on-trend this autumn with your eyeshadow, below are, a few autumnal eyeshadow looks to test out, as well as some tips for which eyeshadows are the best to use.
I am totally impressed with this product ‘Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer.’ I love to see an eyeshadow that is popping with pigments whether bold or nude on any and every skin tone. This is what the Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer does; it enhances the quality of the eyeshadow by providing a strong hold and colour vibrancy.
Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow PrimerThe product is creamy and glides onto eyes smoothly by using the tip of a flat brush.With the Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer I did not experience any product fall out, creasing or wrinkling in my eye area. The product does not tug while being applied as it goes on smoothly. Blending in eyeshadow is also easy with this product.
There were no signs of colour fading after wearing my eyeshadow for several hours. And as the rule says a little goes a long way; therefore excessive use of the product is not needed to get your eyeshadow to pop.
PackagingThe Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer comes in a 10-gram container with material made from polyethylene and terephthalate. The product can be easily identified with the labeling on top cover.
Where can it be purchased?Anyhow, the product is not 100% easy to come by as it is not widely available. It is made in Trinidad and sold for TT$12.

- I love a good wing liner even though I don’t normally get it right on the first try. I mostly wear wing liner when I’m looking to achieve a natural look or I don’t have much time to apply eyeshadow to my lids. The Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Eye Liner helps me to achieve a super defined and sharper look wing liner. With the brush tip applicator, the liner glides on smoothly. I also felt that I had to go over the same area several times to make a deep black line. To get it more pigmented I had to wipe the product on the back of my hands to help the product flow out much easier.
The formula is pigmented, it gives off an opaque intense black, matte finish. The staying power is long and it does not dry and chips off like some liner.Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liquid Eye Liner in Trooper ($20.00 for .02 oz.) comes in a black pen-like design with a brush tip applicator. The packaging is sleek and sturdy. The cap prevents the liquid from drying out and it snaps when being closed that way you know the cap fastens and the product will not stay drying out.
The tip of the Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Eye Liner is made from synthetic hairs packed together in a pointed shape that allows for a more precise eyeliner application.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Eye Liner is easy to use, precise, long staying power and I did not notice any form of dragging while applying the product to my eyelids.

Well, I would like to take the time and talk about my experience of this product by Urban Decay that I have found interest in testing and reviewing. It has been around the market for awhile now but it’s too good not to talk about. This palette is a follow up of the bestselling Naked palette, so not only do they have Naked 2 palette on the market, a variety of Naked palettes can be found and occasionally the Naked Vault is offered as a limited edition. In the Naked Vault, you can find all the series of the Naked palettes, including the Naked Smoky Palette. With that much Urban Decay Naked Palette around it can be difficult to choose which one to purchase and you might end up getting all.

The neutrals are perfect for seamlessly tying in brights together, great for highlighting under the brow, inner corner, deepening edges, creating transition shades and for that natural everyday look.
