The word "basic" gets a bad rap these days, but there is a time and place for everything. There are days where you are feeling experimental with your makeup and there are days where you just need a palette that works. These are the basic palettes that you need in your kit on a vacation or for your "I have a huge important meeting today!" makeup. Check out swatches of 5 eyeshadow palettes below that serve the basic b*tc$ in all of us, because sometimes its necessary!
Everyone knows that when Sephora's Annual Beauty Insider Event comes around, it's time to splurge. It is one of the very few times during the year that makeup actually goes on sale. 🙌🏿🙌🏽🙌🏾

Starting TODAY, 11/3, Rouge members will get 20% off of their purchase until Nov 6th. Rouge members, VIBs and Beauty Insiders will get access to the sale on the weekend of Nov 10th to the 15th with Rouge and VIB members receiving 20% and Beauty Insider members receiving 15% off their purchase.

A few months ago we asked you all, the Cocoa Collective, what some of your favorites were. We provided you with some of the most popular brands and products we've seen on social media and you let us know which ones you thought were the best of the best! Now it has been a few months, so we are sure some things have changed (like Fenty Beauty giving the entire beauty industry a run for their money and Morphe launching a sister palette to their infamous 35O,) BUT hopefully this helps you all try out some great products and great brands!
I decided to hop on the Morphe train and picked up my first palette: the 35O2. Love is an understatement. This is the PERFECT palette for anyone who loves warm toned palettes and definitely gives off fall vibes. (Check out the Cocoa Swatches App for swatches of this palette) This week's Cocoa Color Story is inspired by this palette.
I had the privilege of going backstage with Maybelline for the GCDS RTW SS18 runway show! I was so pleased with the diversity I witnessed -- from the variety of complexions to the varying hair textures, to the athleisure aesthetic mixed with a glamour attitude, this show was everything.
When I first saw the Fenty Beauty video campaign appear on Instagram, I couldn't help but scream YAS! at my phone. An inclusive campaign with a minimal aesthetic shot at the golden hour - SIGN. ME. UP. That whole vibe is right up my alley. Once I was able to get my hands on some of the Fenty Beauty products, the Cocoa Color Story was the first thing I shot.
Like the rest of the internet I am OBSESSED with Fenty Beauty. Not only are the products inclusive but the aesthetic still manages to feel fresh while bringing a touch of glam to the table. Check out how I get my #FENTYFACE in the video below! All products used are listed.
