How To: Makeup for Fall Ft. Pla Beauty

Hey you! It's almost time for my favorite season: fall! Bring on the darker shadows and lips because I'm ready. Today I am sharing a tutorial doing just that! I had the opportunity to try Opulent: Fall 2014 collection from (Plā) Beauty. I met the founder, Stephanie Green-Bass, at the Southern Bloggers Society Conference, and just fell in love with her products as well as her story. Before I share my tutorial, let me tell you a little more about (Plā) Beauty (via site):



Capturing the essence of every woman, (Plā) Beauty features
  • a specially formulated, high-quality customizable, refillable cosmetic line, which contains paraben-free, hypoallergenic products, infused with antioxidants and hydrating properties
  • luscious lipsticks, glosses, and liners; stunning eye shadows, blushers and bronzers; and (Plā) all day foundations, mascaras, primers, and concealers
  • environmentally-friendly makeup that creates more than just a physical impression
  • an opportunity to support Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, as portions of every purchase support this wonderful establishment. This cause is a way to give back to the amazing and giving staff that offered words of encouragement and hope at a time when the founder, Stephanie, felt like she couldn’t go on after her infant daughter passed away. I have visited CHOA many times and love that this place is being supported in such a way.
Now that you know why I love this makeup brand, let's see the Opulent Fall Collection:



(order here)
-In The Sun Bronzer - Blazing Beauty
-Cheeky Blushes - Surrender & Divine Wine
-With A Wink Eye Shadows:
  • Vanilla Ice (light nude shade with a touch of shimmer)
  • Imperial Plum (deep matte plum)
  • Groovey Baby (shimmery medium blue shade)
--I was also given Disco, which is part of the permanent collection.
--There is also a gel liner, Noble


(order here)

There are also some gorgeous lip products, like Glam Glosses in Eye Candy and In the Nude. The lipstick in the fall collection is Damsel, a deep burgundy-red. It's a bit darker than it's showing in my pics, so check out the swatches below:


Here are some quick swatches and what I received in my magnetic Pla Book--it also comes with a huge mirror. I've been carrying this around and it's my favorite travel palette. You can fit in way more than shown. Now onto the tutorial:

I patted Disco all over the lid--it's a gorgeous shimmer. All of my brushes I purchased from here.

Next I swept Imperial Plum into the crease and then used a clean brush to blend it out. Brown eyes are going to love this shade. I have been able to get a full day of wear out of these shadows--no primer needed!

I went back in with the Imperial Plum and added it just to the outer "v" as shown. I blended it in slightly with a clean, fluffy crease brush. I smudged the shade under the bottom as well, using a pencil brush. 

I used a clean pencil brush and swept Vanilla Ice (totally singing it right now) under the brows as a highlight. I added liner to the upper lashes and added mascara.

I used both blushes, with the darker swept on first (it's wonderfully pigmented) and then dusted the lighter shade on the apples of cheeks.

I love how my eyes turned out! I did a quick dusting of bronzer before adding Damsel to my lips (pics below) but I wanted something a little more daytime, so I added glosses on top. The glosses aren't too sticky and have a mango scent that I LOVE. This scent was influenced by Stephanie's travels to Thailand.

Here I am wearing Damsel and then I lightened it with gloss in the second pic! This is a gorgeous collection and I highly recommend (Plā) Beauty. You can order here (or visit Woo Skin Care Cosmetics in Atlanta, Charlotte, or Nashville).

  2. You always take such beautiful pictures! While I love reading beauty posts, I love it moreso when the pictures are nice. I'm very visual, so it's always easier to have a picture to go along with the post.

    I've never heard of this brand before today. Looks like they sell really nice quality products. Thanks for the mini review and tutorial :-)

  31. Yay for the fall colors, your makeup looks gorgeous and simple to try to do with my own makeup, I think I have some similar colors. I think its a great simple look to do for fall, so I'll have to try it for myself. But yeah I'm loving the lip color, it's such a gorgeous red color that I think will go with so many skin tones. I'll have to look up this brand because I've never heard of them before. :)
