🍂🎃October Look Book🎃🍂

Hey everyone! I’m back with another monthly look book, this time for October. This series allows me to take a chance to look back on any flat lays that I have really loved, any events that I have attended, and the eye makeup and nail designs I have done during the month.

October has got to be one of my favourite months. This October was especially good for me as I got to indulge in quite a bit of new makeup, which is always fun! All of the holiday releases started this month, which arguably makes this the most exciting time of the year. I also got to do a couple of fun manicures, although I had hoped that I would have time to do more Halloween-themed nail art. Unfortunately, I ran out of time, mainly because I ended up having to devote Halloween weekend to chaperoning a field trip for the university lab course that I teach. Oh well, I will certainly be going all out for Christmas, just you wait!

One of my favourite palettes, the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette. I love doing cool matte looks with this baby!

Gotta do Pink Wednesday on Insta every once in a while!

This was a throwback picture in honour of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. The original Naked was my first high end makeup purchase and was arguably my “gateway drug” into my makeup addiction. What makeup product got you started?

oct06-2

One of my new purchases this month was the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette. Previous to this I owned no Huda Beauty products, so this was an exciting adventure for me. Her palettes are so expensive ($85 CAD), but I am very happy with this purchase. You will notice that most of my eye looks this month were done with this palette, and I still have so much more exploring to do! I will absolutely have to do a dedicated post to this palette. Have you indulged in this palette or any other Huda Beauty products?

Here is a flat lay that I did for my Top 10 Fall Nail Polishes post.

This is the makeup I wore for Thanksgiving (I live in Canada), featuring the new Tarte Tartelette Flirt palette, which I also purchased this month. I love love their mini palettes. I recently did a review on their tartiest Pro To Go Amazonian Clay palette, so I should also do a review on this one!

Here’s my first holiday purchase of this year! The Becca Après Ski Glow Face Palette 😍. When I saw the packaging, how could I ever resist!? The whole palette is highly mirrored, and the front has gorgeous frosted trees around the perimeter. What’s interesting actually, is that Becca Cosmetics actually travelled to Canada to do their photo shoot for this product, since Whistler already had snow at that time! This is pretty close to where I live.

Really, every single shade inside is gorgeous. I was slightly concerned about the Mineral Blush “Winter Berry” (top right), but it’s really quite nice. Not very pigmented, but I actually appreciate this so that I don’t go overboard! I’d much rather build up. To my surprise though, my favourite blush is the Luminous Blush “Blushed Copper” (bottom left). I really thought that this shade was going to be to dark for me, but I’ve recently discovered that it has a great tone for my skin. Should I do a review of this palette?

Here’s another variation I did using the September Scratch MMK, using some of my favourite fall shades.

Products Used:

  1. Gelish Mini Foundation
  2. OPI “A Women’s Prague-ative”
  3. OPI “It’s a Piazza Cake”
  4. Orly “Country Club Khaki”
  5. Essie “Merino Cool”
  6. Nina Ultra Pro “Ink-ling”
  7. Charming Charlie “Shake Your Money Maker”

  10. Onedor No Wipe Top Coat

One of the releases from the Fenty Beauty Galaxy Collection was this absolutely stunning Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter in “Plutonic Relationship”.  While this shade really doesn’t suit the current season, it will not doubt be my go to during the summer. You can read my review of this lip gloss here.

oct16

This month I also purchased the KL Polish 70’s Vibes Fall Collection. This collection came with 6 shades that really do suit the season. This was my first venture into KL Polish, and I have to say that I am so pleased with the formula! You can read my full review of this collection here.

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to do a manicure to honour this.

Products used:

  1. Orly Bonder Based Coat
  2. OPI “Can’t Hear Myself Pink!”
  3. China Glaze “Spring in My Step”
  4. China Glaze “White on White”
  5. Essie “Sparkle on Top”
  6. Born Pretty Store Light Pink Striping Tape
  7. Cina square gems
  8. Breast Cancer Ribbon Temporary Tattoo (from Michaels Craft Store)
  9. Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

oct19

My second holiday purchase were some items from the MAC Snowball Collection. I purchased the “Here Comes Joy” highlighter and the “Holiday Crush” Frost lipstick. I love LOVE the peachy shade of the highlighter. It isn’t too dark on my skin. The lipstick is also very cool. It’s a frosty nude, so its fun without being too crazy. Did you manage to snag anything from this collection?

oct20

Here is the only Halloween manicure that I managed to do. I wanted to do something that was a bit subtle, but also glam.

Products used:

  1. Orly Bonder Base Coat
  2. Sally Hansen “Ruby Do”
  3. China Glaze “Don’t Make Me Wine”
  4. China Glaze “Liquid Leather”
  5. Mini Mani Moo Mess No More Liquid Latex
  6. Makeup sponge to make the gradient
  7. Kiss Halloween Stickers -> WARNING, DO NOT USE WITH GEL. I tried to do this mani with gel first, and the lamp made the stickers warp and deform, totally ruining the two nails that I tried to do first.
  8. Cina red and purple gems
  9. Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Here is another purchase that I was incredibly excited about this month! From the first moment that I saw this palette, I knew I had to have it. This is so strange, because usually I couldn’t be less interested in palettes that are all neutrals. However, there’s something special about this one… Did you get this palette yet?

oct31

On Halloween, since I didn’t get a chance to do another mani, I decided to feature one that I did last year on my instagram! How cute are those pumpkins?!

  2. OPI “It’s a Piazza Cake”
  3. China Glaze “White on White”
  4. China Glaze “Paper Chasing”

  6. Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Well, that’s it for this month! What looks did you create? What type of looks or nails would you like to see me do during November??
