Super quick look for fall!

Today I felt like doing something easy for fall, with some dark (well, darker than normal for me) lips and a bronzy fall eye.  This is like the easiest look ever but I like it.  The lips look darker in person, I swear.  The lip color is one of the Revlon Balm Stains in the color "Honey" which is like a natural plum color, it's not nearly as light as it looks on the package so if you like light lips like I do, you may not like this color.  But anyways, here's the look I did!

My lighting was super off because the lips look way darker in person!

What I used on the eyes:
Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper
Makeup Geek eyeshadow "Pretentious" all over lid, slightly above the crease, and under the eye
MUG "Mocha" shadow in crease
MUG "Bleached Blonde" to blend "Pretentious" 
MUG "Bling" as a highlight
Avon Glimmersticks Liqui-glide Eyeliner in "Black"
MUG "Corrupt" shadow to set liner

I just thought the color "Pretentious" looked like such a fall color, it's a cool toned bronze color, and I thought mixed with the natural plum lip, it would be perfect for an easy fall look.  Do you have a favorite fall color combo??

And I just got this Avon Glimmersticks Liqui-glide eyeliner and I really like it so far.  It really does feel wet when it goes on, but it glides on like one of the Urban Decay 24/7 pencils.  And it does not transfer.  I have the biggest issue, because of my eye shape, with eyeliners transferring onto my lid and it drives me bonkers.  That hasn't happened yet with this liner.  I'll do a full review on it once I give it a bit longer of a trial but so far so good!  

That's all I have for today, just a really quick post, but as always, thank you so much for your support!

New post! It's been a while!

Sorry guys that it's been so long since I've posted anything!  My daughter brought a nice stomach bug home with her from school that I caught and it messed everything up.  My immune system couldn't shake the bug by itself so I had to be put on antibiotics and fluids and that helped but it pushed my chemo schedule back.  I was supposed to be done the week before Thanksgiving but now my new goal is to be done by Christmas so I guess that's better than nothing.

Well for my birthday, I decided to check out the sale section on Sephora's website and I ordered a bunch of these Prisma Chrome eyeshadows because they were only $3 and I figured I couldn't really go wrong (there are only 2 colors left now but there were way more when I ordered).  There's an orange one that's really pretty and I wanted to wear a bright pink lip (using OCC Lip Tar in "Anime") so I figured I'd go with simple orange on the eyes and this is the look I came up with:

please excuse the lazy brows, I just filled them in with pencil.
Two of my shadows came broken (the orange one being one of them), they are pretty soft, but here's what the orange one looks like in the pan (they sure made a weird shape with them in the pans, almost like a wave).
From not really expecting too much from this, I was surprised at how much I liked it.  I've been using these shadows quite a bit, a lot like how I used it here.  Just super basic.  I haven't even been adding a crease color lately.  Gosh, what is wrong with me??  I need to get back to my makeup doing, I just don't feel like it, you know?

Here are unedited pictures of all of the colors I got: 

too bad this is broken because the color is GORGEOUS!!

I did this look probably 2 weeks ago, just between being sick and chemo I've been really thrown off schedule.  So I'm sorry for that and I really hope to post some more.  Thanks for hanging in there with me!
