Cranberry and Pinks for an Easy Fall/Winter Makeup Look

It's been a while since I posted any makeup looks or reviews, and the start of a new year seems like a good time for updates.  The big news, if you haven't already noticed in the photo above, is I have been growing out my grey hair.  I noticed my first grey hair some time in my early 20s, started coloring a couple of years later, and at this point, I feel like I really need a break - from my boring hair color and the constant upkeep.  It has been an easy 3-month journey so far for me, mostly because I stay at home and don't have to interact with people much except on weekends.  I haven't made up my mind, though, on whether to stick to this or hop back on to the hair color wagon, so it made perfect sense to post on the internet for the world to see 😛.

On the makeup front, I have been obsessed with berry and plum tones this fall, and my current favorites are the Bite Beauty Multistick in Papaya and MAC Cranberry eyeshadow.  I bought both quite recently - Papaya as part of a Bite Beauty mini-multistick duo pack from Sephora, while the MAC eyeshadow was an impulse buy when I found a nearly empty MAC store with a really friendly SA.  While I generally opt for neutral lip colors, I felt like my current hair color (or the lack of) needed a brighter/bolder lip.  Scroll on for an easy makeup how-to.
