My Go-To Fall Palette

Ah, we are finally in the midst of Fall! It seems to be every bloggers favourite season because of the fashion, berry lips, pumpkin spiced lattes (that I am not the biggest fan of), etc. Personally, I like Fall because there's a whole switch up when it comes to makeup. There's no need for a light, sweat-proof routine any more. But more importantly, there's no need for an excuse to go crazy with your eyeshadow! You can do a smokey eye everyday and no one will care because it's just acceptable in the Fall. The palette I'll be reaching for the most this season is the infamous Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette.

I don't know why it took me this long to try out some ABH eyeshadows, but I'm so glad I finally did because I now know the hype around them. This palette is such a gorgeous one that includes the most perfect shades for Fall. All of the shades are extremely smooth and buttery to the touch. I kid you not, when I dipped my fingers into the eyeshadows to do swatches, my fingers would just sink into them like it was butter. Aside from that, all of the shadows are equally pigmented. It's really hard to say anything bad about this palette but I think the only downside would be the packaging. Even though it looks gorgeous with the blush pink, velvety cover, it does unfortunately get dirty easily. If you look closely at my first photo, you could see a smudge of orange on the bottom right side of the palette (not too sure where that came from). 

L-R: Burnt Orange, Realgar, Red Ochre, Love Letter, Vermeer, Primavera
The shades swatched above are some of my favourites from the palette. All of them just scream Autumn to me. I already know that I'm going to be using the crap out of this palette. I've seen so many different looks created by so many different people using this palette. The options are endless when it comes to this gem. This is definitely a palette you need for this season! 

What palette will you be using this Fall?
