The air is crisp, leaves are turning brilliant shades of and the days are getting shorter — all signs that fall is upon us. One of my favorite ways to celebrate the new season is to try new makeup! Summer makeup is typically bright and light with glossy lip and sheer hues. In fall we get to play with deeper colors and take a color cue from nature.
Arbonne’s Victoria Lake Palette takes you from summer to fall without your even having to think about it. Here are the deets about Arbonne Victoria Lake Palette $89:
Be stunning this season with an all-in-one palette inspired by the enchanting scenery of Victoria Lake. Discover glimmering mineral-infused eye shadows, sheer plum lip colour, and a hint of illumination for the cheeks. It’s holiday elegance with colourful impact. Includes four eye shadows: Ripple, Maple, Dawn, and Cloud; Glisten Cheek Highlighter; and Sunset Sheer Moisture Lipstick.
Why I love it:
The shadows are smooth with a velvety texture and apply like a dream. I was afraid that they may be too sheer for my brown skin, but they are pigment potent and “show up.” Even the lightest color packs a punch.
I in particular love the cheek highlighter, Glisten, which is a golden shimmer, that adds glow and a bit of definition.
In my photos I am wearing two eyeshadows from the palette on my eyes –Dream (silver) on the lid from lash to crease, and Ripple (gunmetal) in the crease. I also used Maple (chocolate brown) to fill in my brows. I have glisten on my cheeks and Sunset Sheer Moisture Lipstick (applied heavily) for my lip color.
