Fall Neutrals & Go-To Basics: Makeup & Fashion

Hi beauties! It's "Neutral Makeup" season and I find myself reaching for my Motives Mavens Element Palette more often than any other. The Element has the perfect compilation of Autumn-appropriate shades for day or night that result in fool-proof smokey eyes every time. This palette is by far my favorite neutrals palette out there and I love to pair it with classic styles and outfits. Today's post is highlighting just that, featuring a cool-toned neutral smokey eye and my go-to denim on denim outfit of the day + bonus "neutrals with a twist" nails.
