Best Eyeshadow Palettes for Fall

During fall, eyeshadows shades get darker and lipsticks get bolder. This year's eye shadow palettes combine rustic hues and vintage shades of bronzed sepia, rich plums, and emerald green with earthy browns and brick reds. Smokey grays and blacks will always be a safe and popular choice, but we have also seen a few surprise additions to traditional palettes with soft pastel lilacs and pinks as well as aquamarine.

You can take your fall eye makeup from day to night in a few simple steps! You should always carry a palette containing a rich cocoa brown or sparkling charcoal to take your look from natural to dramatic. Defining the outer corners of your eyes and blending the color up into the crease will create a subtle evening elegance effect. Alternatively, you can sweep a darker shade across your entire lid and complete your look with an extra coat of a waterproof volumizing mascara for a sultry effect.

Check out my picks of the best palettes of the Fall season.

Let Tenantify Verify Your Tenant

Got a potential tenant? Don’t seal the deal just yet. Go to Tenantify and have his employment and current income verified. You do not want to end up with a loss of income because of non-payment, right? Tenantify’s report will let you know if he or she is a worthy client.

The good thing about this service is it is always free for the landlord because it’s the tenant who pays for the verification process. The possible renter does not have to worry though, because the service is available at a minimal cost and he doesn’t have to pay at once. He will only pay when the verification process is complete. A report will be sent to the landlord and from that, the landlord will be able to decide whether to trust him with the property or not.

Of course, there are other companies who offer the same service, but the problem with these companies is their verification procedures are not as thorough as that of Tenantify. They usually rely on the tenant’s past seven year credit background. This could cause major problems because it does not indicate the renter’s current financial condition and who knows if he can actually pay the rent. Tenantify does not do that. Their main concern is to verify the person’s employment and income through electronic bank statements and by talking directly with the employer. This will give you peace of mind that you are entrusting your property to someone without having to worry about your income.

DIY Flower Arrangements

Want to save on your wedding or holiday flowers? Why not make your bouquets and centerpieces on your own? Don’t get intimidated because it’s really easy to make them. Here are some ideas.

Inspire instant smiles with a mix of old and new

IMG_3289

The secret to this soft, yet sophisticated tableau is to blend heirloom accents and fresh-picked flowers with streamlined dinnerware. An embroidered linen tablecloth is sprinkled with bright garden sampler bouquets tucked into vintage glass bottles. Simple porcelain plates and cotton napkins add layers of modern flair.

Elevate sweets with a mini glass pedestal pastry stand

IMG_3288

Even the simplest cupcakes or mini Bundt cakes will look holiday-ready with small cake cloches. Sprinkle powdered sugar and a few blooms and tuck the sweets under a sparkling dome and they will become a feast to the eyes.

Grace place settings with a fresh-picked cuff

IMG_3286

Make a beautiful napkin band using flowers from your garden. To do: Collect a dozen assorted blooms. Pierce a 14″ length of floral wire through each bloom’s base, then twist the wire ends to form a ring. This gorgeous floral napkin holder will surely wow your guests.

If you need more ideas, you can visit Bloominous, a really cool website I found while looking for DIY flower arrangements. The site specializes in wedding bouquets and centerpieces, but they also cater for other occasions. The prices of their DIY kits are very affordable, too. Below are some of  their awesome designs just to give you an idea.

Lipsticks For Pale Complexions

The best lipstick colors for pale complexions are those that are fresh rather than overpowering. Deep, bold lipstick colors can be suitable when drama is required or a sharp image is needed for a photography shoot. Softer shades however, can be the most flattering for everyday wear.

Incognito Lipstick Vibe Pink – Grrl Toyz

Incognito Lipstick Vibe Pink - Grrl Toyz

Pink colored lipsticks can help women with a pale complexion look healthy and vibrant. Care needs to be taken so that the pink color chosen doesn’t have a white undertone, unless a 1960s look is required. The best pink shades to choose range from those that are slightly darker in contrast to skin tone to those that are far warmer.

Incognito Lipstick Vibe Pink – Grrl Toyz – $11.99, Free shipping – Available at Amazon.com Marketplace

 

Color Lip Last Sephora 05 Rose Bouquet – Reddish Pink

Color Lip Last Sephora 05 Rose Bouquet - Reddish Pink

Rose pink can be especially flattering on women with very pale skin, and tends to look great on individuals with delicate features and blond to mid brown hair. Women with darker hair may find they need to define their lips a little more, and a dusky rose or deeper plum color lipstick will do the trick.

Color Lip Last Sephora 05 Rose Bouquet – Reddish Pink – $36.00, 4.49 shipping – Available at Amazon.com Marketplace

 

Mac Lipstick- Relentlessly Red From Retro Matte Fall 2013 Collection

Mac Lipstick- Relentlessly Red From Retro Matte Fall 2013 Collection

Red colored lipstick can be daring next to a pale skin tone. Therefore, unless this is the wearer’s aim, subtle reds that have an orange, rather than blue-based undertone tend to achieve the most appealing result.

A great method for applying red lipstick to achieve a natural looking effect is to use a fingertip to spread color over lips. This results in lips appearing flushed rather than heavily made-up.

 

Mac Lipstick- Relentlessly Red From Retro Matte Fall 2013 Collection – $16.00, Free shipping – Available at Nordstrom

 

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor Magnificent Mauve

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor Magnificent Mauve

Women with pale skin need to be wary of using purple-based lipstick colors. Subtlety is the key to achieving the best result. Gentle plum-toned mauve colors, rather than blue-based purple tones, are the most flattering.

 

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor Magnificent Mauve – $5.59, 5.02 shipping – Available at Target.com

 

Paris Infallible Le Rouge Lipcolor, Coral, .09 oz

Paris Infallible Le Rouge Lipcolor, Coral, .09 oz

Just like white-based pink tones, orange lipstick colors can appear old fashioned and stale. Warm, pink-based orange lipstick colors can be flattering.

 

Paris Infallible Le Rouge Lipcolor, Coral, .09 oz – $10.70, Free shipping – Available at Amazon.com Marketplace

 

New York Colorsensational Lipstick, Mochachino 310, 0.15 oz (4.2 g) Browns 0.15 oz (4.2 g)&&

New York Colorsensational Lipstick, Mochachino 310, 0.15 oz (4.2 g) Browns 0.15 oz (4.2 g)&&

Brown lipstick colors are not generally attractive next to pale-toned skin. Colors that appear muddy provide an unflattering result. Women who love brown-based lipstick can benefit from adopting a warm, plum-based brown that is light in tone, or mixing subtle brown lipstick with pink.

New York Colorsensational Lipstick, Mochachino 310, 0.15 oz (4.2 g) Browns 0.15 oz (4.2 g)&& – $5.49, 5.48 shipping – Available at Amazon.com

 

Colour Riche Lipstick, Raisin Rapture (Plum Burgundy) 892 0.13 oz

Colour Riche Lipstick, Raisin Rapture (Plum Burgundy) 892 0.13 oz

Burgundy lipstick can achieve a completely different result to subtle pink. Burgundy is a warm color, although not as severe as red. Used sparingly, it can add color and depth so that lips are more noticeable without makeup looking too obvious.

Colour Riche Lipstick, Raisin Rapture (Plum Burgundy) 892 0.13 oz – $79.49, 4.49 shipping – Available at Amazon.com Marketplace

 

Women with a pale complexion have plenty of colors to choose from, depending on their mood and choice of venue. By avoiding brash colors and favoring subtle, fresh tones, women can achieve a great appearance with lipstick.

How to Style: Flannels

Everyone has been going crazy about this trend for a while now, so I thought of writing a blog about it.

Let’s get started!

Since the rainy season has started, most days of the week are cold. Attached are pictures for those days:

When it’s the rainy season in our country, we still wear shorts because it isn’t too cold like the other countries.

Your first option is to wear it like the usual, and then you pair it with shorts and a statement tee below. Your shoes may just be boots, closed shoes, or sandals that can be paired with an outfit like this. Whichever you prefer. If ever you feel like it’s still too cold, you could put on a beanie or a hat to feel a little bit more comfortable while outside in the rain.

Your second option is to tie your flannel to your waist. This is most preferred by people who like to dress up. Put on a  statement shirt paired with black skinny jeans. And to top it all of, tie your flannel around your waist and accessorize as you like.

This outfit is quite plain, but it already looks good. You can wear a comfy t-shirt paired with ripped jeans, and tied to your waist is the flannel. Finish the outfit with loafers and a bag that can carry all your things.

And when there are days when it’s not too cold, we wear this:

Sleeveless tops or cropped tops also suit this style. Pick whatever top you want and wear your favorite leather shorts, and then tie your flannel on your waist. For more edge to the outfit, put on socks with the color of your flannel and finish it off with shoes with cut-offs on it.

Hope you guys now know how to style flannels! Rock it!
