Obsessed with Classic Colors.

I'm obsessed with color this fall. Not over the top colors or anything wild; I like classic colors. I keep using the same few classic shades as accents in not only my fashion items, but in my makeup and nail colors too. I'm obsessed with white, blue and gray. Classic colors are definitely for me this fall.

To further draw upon, inspire and keep all of my color choices straight, I have created some eBay Collections centered on these classic shades. I like being able to organize my color finds into Collections.

Feeling Blue features items such as my favorite blue nail polishes that I love to paint on my nails when I carry my stylish blue woven handbag.  I also like to accent an otherwise boring outfit with a pop of blue by way of a chunky bejeweled blue necklace and earrings or finish it off with a pair of blue suede ballet flats. Of course, a smooth blue khol liner is a great way to add drama to an otherwise boring smoky eye.


Go Gray! is all about my greatest obsession with everything gray. It was a huge color for fall last year and it has carried to this year as well. From my favorite fall scarf to endless pots of gray shadows (I have so many and need so many more), gray is still a super hot shade this season. My favorite way to wear gray is on my nails; I love a gray sparkly accent nail. I have a few of those nail polish picks in this collection.

White HOT! is unexpected for fall and winter because it is white, but I wear white all year round and love it. My White HOT! collection includes my favorite white skinnies and sunnies, white accessories such as a white phone case, a big white bib necklace, an infinity scarf and white nail polish. White nail polish was really on trend this summer, but I will keep it around for nail art and glitter top coats this season too. One of my best kept makeup secrets uses a white makeup product that is in this collection as well. I use a white eyeliner on the inner rim of my eyes (the lower waterline) to open up and brighten my eyes.

Top 10 Makeup Palettes.

I own more makeup palettes that any other makeup. Well, except for maybe lipgloss. Or lipstick. No, make that mascara. Or eyeliner. Well, you get the point. I have a lot of makeup. I buy a lot of makeup palettes because it's where I get a lot of bang for the buck.

I change my makeup palettes out seasonally and always wind up buying one or two more each season.

The Best Makeup Palettes for Your Money

Here are my top 10 favorite makeup palettes.

1. Stila In the Light Palette

I am on my second Stila In the Light Palette. Though I do have so many simialr shades, I really needed them again. I love the formula and the shades and use them for everyday looks.

2. Bobbi Brown Antigua Face Palette

This is one of my go to palettes for travel and it comes with me whenever I go to Florida. It has everything I need for day or night looks.

3. Urban Decay NAKED Basics

This basics palette is perfect in every way. I use it often, as it is a "basic" palette and have bought one for my daughter as well. I'm sure I will be replacing this one too.

4. Too Faced 
Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Palette

This is another one of those that I am sure I will be replacing. I use it for everyday makeup looks when I want  a little bit of a kick of shimmer.

5. Anastasia She Wears It Well Eye Shadow Palette

This is another more natural shade eye shadow palette, but with more rich shades, some shimmer and some matte. I really like the long wearing formula.

6. Bobbi Brown Tortoiseshell Eye Palette

I used this all summer long for the last three years and really wish I had a replacement because I am at the bottom of a few of these warm shimmering shades.

7. Urban Decay Smoked Eyeshadow Palette

For smokey eyes, this is my go to eyeshadow palette. These are so ultra blendable and perfectly pigmented.

8. NARS Hearts New York City Eye & Cheek Palette

I bought this on a whim earlier in the year when traveling and I am so happy that I did. It is one of those that travels well and has everything I need for an everyday look.

9. MAC Bare My Soul Eyeshadow Palette

This is another summer palette, but I used this for summer nights out.

10. Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour Palette

An oldie but goodie, I love these baked shadows. The super soft shadows are beautiful in color and formula. I really need her to make another one.
