Are we tired of Halloween skulls yet? I hope not, because I have two cool neon skull looks for you. The other one is more traditional with black, whereas the second skull is more glam and toned down with brown matte shading.

I got to collaborate with nobe and Suva Beauty on this on Instagram, but I figured I needed to share the looks on the blog as well (and tell you more about the amazing palette!).

Suva Beauty UV Taffies Hydra Fx Palette swatches & review

I had seen and heard of Suva Beauty and these amazing colorful liner palettes before. But I was still amazed of the quality and the amount of pigment these have! I have never owned makeup that is this bright. The UV Taffies palette has 5 bright colors that are activated with water. So you just wet your liner brush and dip into the color. It’s quite easy to get the right water-pigment ratio.

The colors looks beautiful and bright in natural light and they shine in UV light. Once these dry on the skin, they are really locked in and don’t fade. However, since they are water-based, I love how easily they’re washed off with water.

These colors work as a fun detail on every day looks, but obviously they really shine on Halloween or festival looks. 

I also like the fine liner brush that comes in the palette. It’s great for details – the brush is dense, but flexible. Another brush I used for these looks is Suva Beauty’s Six Forty. It’s bigger and was more convenient for example on the bigger lines of the skulls.

Now tell me  – which skull is your favorite? I actually had a mild nervous breakdown after one of these, thinking it was the ugliest thing ever. Then a few days after that I looked at the makeup again and realized both of the looks are pretty cool after all. I think we can blame the pregnancy hormones for this…

P.S. I’m already on week 23!

PS. I love fall (makeup)

Usually I refuse to talk about fall before my birthday (which is in about a week), but this year is different. I’m more than ready for all things autumnal, especially makeup.

Every year when summer ends, the contents of my makeup bag change. I move on to foundations, after rocking a very sheer bb-cream the whole summer. I go for dark lipsticks, even though I’m usually a nude gloss type. As for eyeshadows, well, I go for warm eyeshadows all year round. Fall is especially made for red, bronze and gold tones. And dark eye makeup!

On another note, it’s also quite lovely to walk the paths in a natural park in rain. Sit down on a mossy rock every once in a while. See how fall slowly arrives in the forest. Look for mushrooms and owls – without spotting either.

Fall makeup – dark eyes & lips

This looks is very much what comes to mind, when I think of fall makeup. Dark lips, light base with some warmth along with dark eye makeup. Think of warm, red and bronze colors.

For this look I was actually inspired by my own fall makeup from three years ago. I decided to recreate it and do some improvements. Looking at your own work unfortunately you always spot mistakes, always. It’s also interesting to compare these looks and see how my makeup style has changed. Can you spot the differencies?

This time I went for a darker, more golden eye. The palette of my choice was Too Faced Gingerbread Palette Extra Spicy. It’s definitely one of my favorite warm palettes with all the delicious warms, reds and mustardy colors.

When it comes to my base, I used less products – just a good foundation, some bronzer and a peachy blush. Now when I say a good foundation, I actually mean awesome. But I’m gonna do a review soon on it here, so I’ll save some of my enthusiasm for that.

As for the lips, I used a gorgeous deep fall red, YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Stain in 21. Typically darker lipsticks are difficult to get to go on evenly and smoothly on the lips. This lipstick formula is very lightweight and comfortable, making it easier to succeed. So if you’re looking for intense color, but a comfortable feel on the lips, YSL Matte Stain might be one to check out.

What do you think of this autumnal look?

I have to say, it feels weird to be back at blogging after a long holiday. Especially since I’ve kept quite a bit of break from social media, also on Instagram. But it’s very nice to be back too! Hopefully your summer was nice – or maybe you’re still enjoying it? Or are you ready to just bow down to fall?

I love fall.
