Gold, Olive and Brown Smokey Fall look with Morgana Minerals

I got up at my normal time (6:30 am) and instead of letting myself take the time to wake up fully, I did a makeup look while sipping...OK gulping down a HUGE cup of coffee. I don't think I look tired, but my eyelids tend to be puffy and weird for the first couple hours after waking up, so it was a little weird to apply makeup right away.

Also, I don't think I have ever said this before but Morgana Minerals has become my fav makeup brand. I think inside I've known it for a while but I've never posted about it. I just really love the eyeshadows, lipsticks and glitter so much! I find myself wanting to reach for my Morgana stash more than anything. I've also done more makeup looks in the past year with Morgana Minerals more than any other brand. It's like Morgana Minerals was made for ME! :-)  OK like a dork, I said Morgana Minerals too many times!
Does anyone have a particular brand they feel this way about? I would love to hear what is your all time fav and why.

So here's my look. I'm still not fully awake so I hope I describe the application correctly!

  1. I need to order that lipstick, so I better get busy finishing up some dog collars.

  2. how beautiful are you! i've missed your facee! i can't wait to try some of her glitters, they look so awesome!

  3. Wow i need to try something like that out, never thought a could like golden look so much.

    Sadly, the brand i use most is MAC - not very cheap here in germany. -.-
    But it works well, i don't know why, but mineral eyeshadows crease and fall off my lids with any base combo i ever tried. :(

  4. This is really pretty, but you don't look like your normal, happy self! Still gorgeous, though.

  5. OMG! This look is amazing! Well done!

  6. Very beautiful, as always :)
    I wish I had eyes like yours!

  7. Loving the olive eyes and wine red lips combination. Very sultry! .x

  8. Ooooh this is so nice ! Yah love it :)

  9. Wow, don't think I've seen you do a look this sultry and sexy before. You are lookin' way hot here! Loving the lashes too.

  10. I think this look is seductive, it's really nice!

  11. I love this! This is probably my favorite look of all time! Only because I know its something I could pull off! lol

  12. I looove your look! I want to do this look tomrrow actually!

  13. hoooooly shitcakes that is a hot combo!

  14. I loove that eye colour with the red lipstick! It's a really pleasing combination :)

  15. Great colour combo! It is a nice fall look!

  16. Ahhh I thought there might've been Joust and Stonekeep at work in this look ;] I really love the smoked out upper liner!

  17. Those colors and that lippie were totally made for you! This look is amazing!

  18. oh i really love this look girl!!!!
    that lipstick is soooooooooooo beautiful!!!

  19. This is gorgeous, the olive looks great on you.

  20. Awesome work as usual! I love this color

  21. Wow. You always look awesome, but I just have to say that with olive around your eyes you look just like you stepped off a movie set. You look like a fabulous movie star taking a photo break. It is a very flattering, very adult look for you, and it brings out your eyes in the best possible way. I must say that what I like most about your blog is seeing the bright color combinations, but I think this is the most flattering look I've seen you wear.
