BECCA Ombre Rouge Palette Review + Fall Makeup



I've had many fall makeup requests over the past few weeks, so today I'm showing you the eye shadow palette I have been using for the fall season, the BECCA Ombre Rouge eyeshadow palette.

I have been wearing the same eyeshadow combinations for a while now, and felt like trying something new, so I picked up this palette. I wasn't sure I would like it because of the tinges of red (hence the 'rouge') in the shades, but I was pleasantly surprised! These are very natural looking shades that would be universally flattering. I like them because they bring out my eye color and are still quite subtle.



In this week's video, I apply the eyeshadow and show you swatches. I also give a quick tutorial on how to apply eyeshadow on a hooded eye. Whether you have this palette, or not, I hope I provide inspiration to use whatever fall makeup you do have to change your le no makeup look with the season.


Also featured in the video are the usual suspects, YSL Faux Cils burgundy mascara, Urban Decay primer potion, Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist's Palette and CHANEL Rouge Coco lipstick in Mademoiselle. On my nails is OPI Barefoot in Barcelona.

I hope you enjoy this week's video!

Comment of the Week
From last week's Facebook Etiquette discussion,
On YouTube, Kristen C. writes:

This is a great video. My general rule of thumb is: if you wouldn't want to see it on a billboard while driving down the freeway, don't post it online. This may sound a bit extreme, but you never know what can happen after you've shared something. No matter how good you think your privacy settings are, the things you post can be discovered, even after you've deleted them. Another thing to think about (that most people don't consider) is how your social media accounts could be used against you in a lawsuit. I am a paralegal, and I have seen so many cases where Facebook pages, and even text messages, are used to great advantage (or disadvantage, depending on your perspective). As we were told in paralegal school, always behave as though the judge were looking over your shoulder. In other words, be courteous and gracious, particularly in times of disagreement. If someone has wronged you, give that person every chance to make things right.


Hi Kristen, Your advice really reinforces that what we post on Facebook is important. Thank you for sharing your experience as a paralegal with us!

This week, I would love to know... what is your favorite fall makeup right now? Do you have hooded eyelids like me? What are your tricks for applying makeup?

Hi, Jennifer. I was just wondering if you could give us an update on the hair vitamins you were using. Did they help?

Love the makeup video. And the music in the background.

I have always read descriptions of people in books, where it was said they had "hooded eyelids," and pictured something more extreme. Imagine my surprise when I realized -- Hey! I have hooded eyelids! No wonder my eyeshadow disappears when I look at myself straight on in the mirror. I can't wait to put my makeup on this morning; I will try it your way and see how it works. Thank you so much for the tips!

Nice colours. I need to replenish and renew my eye colours.

Well, I tried your tips for applying eye shadow to hooded eyelids, and it did make a difference. But I also noticed that it looked even better still when I went just a shade or two darker than I usually wear, followed by brushing the slightly lighter shadow on the middle of my eyelid. It brings the focus to my eyes instead of my "hoods".

Jennifer, I bought this color set and it is beautiful! Thank you! Also, have you done a video about brushes? What kinds are best to use and how to care for them? I really need some advice. Do ya always have to buy top of the line in brushes or can you get away with more inexpensive brands?

Candice W said...

Thank you for the make up video. I agree with previous comments here and think a hooded eye shadow tutorial along with brush styles and care would be very helpful. Thank you for your time and graciousness. It's very refreshing! ~Candice
