Fall Look Featuring the Jaclyn Hill Morphe Palette


Hello all and happy Monday! I wanted to share with you a look I put together using the above Jaclyn Hill Morphe Palette.  I absolutely love this palette, you have mattes and shimmers and neutrals and brights and everything in between.  I have really fallen head over heels for Morphe palettes since I purchased my first on last year, the 35OS.  I created this look with the warmth and neutrals that Fall and Thanksgiving make me think of.  I hope you enjoy!

I love fall eye looks, with the berries, the deep browns, the oranges, and the reds.  I love how those colors can pop against pale skin tones.  For my face I used
-IT CC+ cream for my base
-Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder to set my face
-Nars Orgasm for my blush
-MAC Soft and Gentle for my highlight
-Benefit Hoola Bronzer for some light contouring
-For my brows I used the ABH Perfect Brow Pencil and Soap and Glory Archery brow gel
-Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on eye pencil in ‘Smoke’
-Urban Decay Perversion mascara
MorphePalette1 For my crease I used the mid tone brown color called ‘Buns’.
To deepen my crease I used the slightly redder toned brown called ‘Roxanne’.
For the outer and inner third of my eyelid I used the really shimmery brown color called ‘Hillster’.
To give a slight “halo” effect I used a lighter bronze color called ‘S.B.N.’

I was really pleased with how this look turned out.  I had never tried the “halo” effect before and now I think I will be doing it a bit more because I loved the look it gave.  I’m still trying to get used to using matte’s in my crease (yes I know I’m late to the party with that one) so using these makes it easier to test out because the Morphe shadows are so creamy and easy to blend.  That way if I get too much dark shadow on the outer part of my eye, I can be less nervous and blend it out with ease.  The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette from Morphe will set you back $38 but given that you get 35 individual shadows, that’s only a little over a $1 for each shadow.  I don’t know about you but I think that’s a pretty good deal given the excellent quality of the shadows themselves.  The one thing I wish was different would be the casing of the palette.  It’s a white stiff board palette.  It doesn’t feel as sturdy as their normal palettes which are in a black hard plastic case.  It is more esthetically pleasing to the eye but won’t travel well.  You give some you get some I guess. All in all, I would definitely recommend this palette for makeup lovers and artists alike because of the nice range of colors and the quality.

Do you have a favorite Morphe palette? I’d love to know!!!
