One of the most versatile eyeshadows in our By Night Fall collection is Breathless Pearluster Eyeshadow. This gorgeous beige grey brightens the eyes no matter what undertone or eye color you have. Wear Breathless all over the lid, on it’s own, as a base with deeper By Night shades like After Hours or Labyrinth, or as a face highlighter. Here’s one of many ways to get the Breathless look this fall.
1. Begin with freshly cleansed and moisturized skin. Apply Satin Matte Foundation in your favorite shade with a #25 Foundation Brush. Our lovely model Ashley is wearing a light application of Warm 2 Satin Matte Foundation.
2. To brighten the cheekbones, apply Apple Blossom Satin Matte Blush to the apples of your cheeks with a #17 Blush Brush and blend outwards. This gives a gorgeous natural flush to the cheeks.
3. For a luminous highlight, use your #23 Kitten Brush to apply Breathless Pearluster Eyeshadow on the tops of your cheek bones and down the bridge of the nose. With your finger pop it right onto the cupids bow.
7. This soft and feminine look calls for bold brows. Take your #33 Angle/Liner Brush to define your brows with your brow shade. Ashley is wearing a mixture of Blond and Cocoa Satin Matte Eyeshadow to create her perfect shade.
9. Dab on Sweet Pea Lip Tint to enhance the natural color of your lips.
There’s no denying it, this fall is all about the eyes. Bold colors and monochrome lids were seen at Dior, Alturzarra, and Chanel while lux lashes of all lengths and thickness captured the attention at Saint Laurent and Prada.
The most accessible and our favorite trend to grace this fall? Metallics. Whether worn strong and sultry, or playful and understated, metallic shadows are THE fall trend to add a little depth and glow to your look. Inspired by this, we launched the cinematic By Night collection last week. Each shade in the collection looks gorgeous with the others or worn on it’s own.
By Night metallics:
Breathless is an ultra-flattering pearled two-toned grey gold. It illuminates, brightens, and beautifully awakens the eye. Breathless is lovely with eyes of all colors, we love it as a soft glowing wash over the whole lid.
Vertigo is a soft, antiqued taupe with a glowing finish. Versatile and ultra-flattering, Vertigo has just the right amount of warmth to brighten the eye area. It is quickly becoming one of our favorites for day and for night.

The By Night fall collection is here! We’ve created five limited edition eyeshadows to add drama to your look this fall. Inspired by film noir, each shade beautifully captures the light and adds mystery to the eyes with just a simple wash of color. As always, each of these vibrant eyeshadows provides intensity using just three natural ingredients.
Each shadow is unique and can be simply worn on its own or combined for a day or amped up nighttime look. Each week we will show you how to ‘get the look’ with each of the eyeshadows. This week is all about Labyrinth which is a glowing, sultry deep sea green.
3. Apply a touch of Mimosa Satin Matte Blush the apples of your cheeks and blend to your temples for a natural flush with a #17 Blush Brush. This blends well with Sombra Contour Powder and lifts the cheeks while adding a hint of sweetness to your look.
5. Wet your #35 Eye Detail Brush and liberally apply Labyrinth Pearluster Eyeshadow all over the base of your lid and up to the crease (never going above the crease). Wetting the brush intensifies the eyeshadow into a vibrant sultry blue green.
9. Dab on Sweet Pea Lip Tint for gorgeous neutral pink lips.
