Supernaturally Neutral Eye Look

Hello hello! I hope you all are doing well! I wanted to start a thing where I showcase an eyeshadow palette like once a week, where I only use that palette on my eyes? Something like that. We shall see how it goes! 
                                        IMG_20171206_112534

This weeks palette is the Supernatural palette by Models Own. I found this palette and honestly, out of all of the ones available, this is the only one that caught my fancy...and swatched the best. This palette retails for $17.99 at Ulta, so it isn't exactly cheap, but it also is not overly expensive. You get 10 eye shadows for that price, which really is a good deal if you think about it. The only thing that annoys me about how these pictures turned out, is that my mascara transferred and flaked a little bit. Otherwise I am pretty pleased with the final look! 

                                                                                                                                                                     EyeOpen
I started off with a base of NYX Proof It! eyeshadow primer.
For the lip I started off mixing Spiritual and Phenomenon together and applied them all over the lid.
For the crease and outer V, I used Curse.
For the lower lashline, I did the same combination of shadows that I used on the lid.

These eyeshadows apply quite well and are easily blendable and mix really lovely! You do have to be a little careful, just because there can be a little fall out, just because some of them are a little glittery.

For my eyeliner I used Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner in Trooper Black.

L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black ; Waterproof

Before y'all freak out on me, the nose piercing is totally fake! Thank goodness for Claire's! I know it isn't everyone's thing, but I like it! I wont get a real one though. :P

This is probably one of the rare times that I wear foundation! I have been wearing it quite often though!

I used Hard Candy Sheer Envy Shine Free Primer as my base, and I have to say I freaking love it!
Foundation Revlon ColorStay Combination/Oil in 200 Nude
Eyebrows; Urban Decay Shakedown eyeshadow
Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder 004 Sandstorm
NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray

For my lips...I know it was one of those old Urban Decay stick....lipstick type things? I can't remember the name of it, nor apparently can I find it at this current moment. My luck!

I definitely recommend this palette to try out and definitely try out this look or something similar too it! Putting gold with any kind of reddish purple is gorgeous! 

Have an amazing day!!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner Waterproof Liquid Liner

I have no joke been putting off buying this eyeliner because of how pricey it is. In total I payed $21.40 for this eyeliner at Sephora...In my defence though I was buying it as a birthday present too myself, so I kind of am justifying the price for that reason. Plus, the last time I .... wait scratch that, just kidding. That will be another post. Ha!

KatVonD-Tatto-Liner-Package

I have really been wanting this eyeliner for quite a while because I am always hearing how amazing of a product that it is and how crisp of a line that you can get with it! I will be putting up some makeup looks here within the next few weeks that will be showcasing this eyeliner! So be on the lookout for that, but for now, later in the post is just a swatch! What really jump started me to considering purchasing this is a friend of mine. She had just bought this and was talking about how she absolutely loves it and how it stays on her "Overly greasy Italian skin" Not exactly her words, but there was some profanity in it! Ha. As with everything eyeliner wise...or well at least liquid liner wise, I had to get the blackest possible eyeliner.

Trooper Black  is definitely a blackest black type of eyeliner. I was so impressed swatching it in store as well as actually applying it on my lid. I can't even tell you how smooth this applied! Like a warm knife going through butter, I am seriously so impressed by this eyeliner and it's application. I think I will be a longtime fan as this point!

I love the sleek black-ness (?) of this packaging and I love the roses that are on it. If I am not mistaken she hand draws all of the artwork on her packaging. I feel that is a thing, but at the same time I have been known to be wrong. xD This applies so smoothly without any skips or goodness forbid mess ups! Y'all know I did the wing like usual with it and it came out so smooth and crisp and sharp enough to cut someone! Per anything Kat Von D related, this is vegan and cruelty free. I'm not exactly sure how this compares to her Ink Liner because I've not used this, but I have a few other KvD items and am so far incredibly impressed with the quality of them all.

Sephora as well as her own website call this a "satin" finish, which I tend to take as, not matte but not glossy. I would say that once it sets, it is definitely a satin finish..it looks shiny in the picture, but it definitely is not that glossy in real life, the flash just exaggerated the look. I wont even begin to tell you how much I had to scrub with my Micellar water to actually get this off. I had a red mark on my arm for a few minutes for sure! So I would definitely recommend, using a makeup remover instead of a micellar water to take this off.

KatVonD-Tatto-Liner-Close-Up

I seriously can not get over how fine of a point that is! This is a BRUSH liner, not a felt tip, so if those are not your kinda brushes...I would say give it a try anyways! This is definitely worth the money 100% and I am so excited that I finally took the leap after all of the suggestions and tried it.

I can't stop gushing about this eyeliner to be honest. It has quickly become my favorite product that I have purchased recently!

You can purchase this eyeliner at Katvondbeauty.com as well as Sephora.

Well, Hello!

Heya everyone!
I know it has been a hot hot minute since I have actually blogged, and lets be real, my last post wasn't exactly an easy post to write.  We all are always going through something, whether we hide it or not. I wont lie, over the past year and a half I really lost the part of me that loved blogging. I love the drive and want to take pictures and to work on posts. It's a shame really, because I do miss it and I miss all of you so much!

So, no not beginning the new year, beginning now, I am going to try and get back into blogging!

Let's play catch up though!

You may have noticed that a -lot- of pictures are missing from my blog. Unfortunately, it is taking me ages to download them individually from Photobucket, since they decided that they wanted to charge you $400 to use your own pictures on a website that isn't their own. Okay, cool photobucket! At least let me download my own pictures! I mean come on.Y'all are killing me!

So catch up time!
I have finally taken the leap and dyed my hair something other than blonde or one of the other colors it was! I'm not gonna front, it was supposed to be a silver/gray with blue undertones in it! My hair literally turned Smurf blue! -_- I rocked it for a good month though and seriously loved it! I just dyed it a dark blue/teal color but don't have a proper picture just yet! The next post you will see it!

I also ended up finding my LOVE finally (I know right?!) for lipsticks, but my lipstick love is only for dark lipsticks! I still can't get the look of lighter ones right! I always feel like it turns clownish!

I still have my three crazy kitties that I am still absolutely obsessed with!

I'm still going to Busch Gardens, obviously! It's Christmas Town currently so the park is absolutely gorgeous! I will have to do a full post on that at a later date before it ends!

I haven't been painting my nails, because they are still so brittle and break so easily! So I have been wearing fakes...but I am going to get back into painting my own nails and hopefully growing them out! ...I just have to wait...or not paint my pinky! Long story short, I was hanging out with some friends playing Pokemon Go and my nail got stuck in a table some how and ripped the fake nail off and ripped almost the entire nail off of my pinky. It's been a week and the top of my finger is still numb and it's still pretty painful. I can always just bandaid it though so you don't have to see it! :O

I have so many things that I want to share with you all that it isn't funny! I am so excited to get back into taking pictures and blogging about everything! Hopefully This week I will be able to get some posts up! I need to clean a couple things before I can take pictures of them!


But for now, have an amazing rest of your weekend!


Best, Autumn

Mental Illness...

So this is a topic that I have touched on a couple of times in the past but I always end up deleting the posts or making them private. Simply because back then I was embarrassed about it and about the Stigma. I don't particularly like talking about it just because it's something most people don't understand..I was even going to do a post along with a bunch of other bloggers back a few months ago, but I never got to it because..well I simply didn't want to talk about it then. However in light of the recent suicide of Chester Bennington of Linkin Park..I want to talk about it.

Usually celebrity deaths don't affect me in the slightest..Yes they are upsetting and god damn it sucks. However none of them have affected me like Chester's has. Back when I was in middle school I had starting listening to Linkin Park but in high school is really when I started to really struggle with some stuff. Linkin Park and Chester's voice had helped me get through a lot. I religiously listened to Linkin Park and I have most of their albums, except for the recent 3 of them, but I listen to them on Spotify. That is beside the point though. This band helped me get through so much when I was in high school, even when I tried to kill myself. Yes, I am going to admit that right here and now...there is a little known fact about me...After that had happened and after the self harming, I decided to get help from a therapist as well as when I was diagnosed with depression, anxiety as well as Borderline Personality Disorder.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) has nothing to do with schizophrenia, so let us just stop that thought process right there. The symptoms include emotional instability, feelings of worthlessness, insecurity, impulsivity, and impaired social relationships. So if you have ever wondered why I am crap at having social relationships...there ya go, now you know. I am also extremely insecure as well as I am pretty impulsive with quite a few things. I also can jump from one emotion to another in seconds. People don't particularly know how to handle it, especially my Husband. Even after 10 years he still doesn't quite understand but he tries. That is all that matters though.

Anyways, all of that aside, BPD is a pretty difficult mental illness to deal with because there really isn't anything that helps it at all. I even stopped taking the medication for it because it didn't help.

Basically what made me decide that I wanted to finally address and talk about it is ultimately Chester's death. I honestly don't think that I will ever get over it. He was such a bright light in everyone's lives. So many of Chester's fans and LPs dans are greatly affected by his death. It just goes to show you that no matter how happy someone seems, there are always demons that you cannot see.

All I ask is that if you know someone who has a mental illness just check in on them. They may not want to talk about it BUT you just letting them know that you care could mean the entire world to them. You never know what is going on in someones mind or if they are struggling with some thing. People are pretty good at hiding things, myself included. Just check up on your friends and loved ones to make sure they are okay and make them smile and happy. You could end up saving their life and not even know it.

I think hearing or possibly talking to someone does more good then you all think. I sure as hell would have appreciated it back in high school. Especially when every one thought it was just for attention.

Be kind to others.
