November is for Topaz & Citrine: 18 Color Stories to Celebrate November Birthdays

November has two birthstones: topaz, which is often found in shades of colorless, light blue, yellow, orange, pink, violet, and brown, but topaz birthstone jewelry is typically sold in shades of blue (which can be heated colorless topaz); and citrine, which is typically light yellow to burnt orange.

About This Series

Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. Consider these ideas a jumping off point with four “core” colors that can inspire your next look. For reference, based on how I usually apply makeup, I would consider applying the shades in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease or lid.

November is my birthday month and these colours and shades are right up my alley! I love the blue shaded combinations, the taupes and the gold/copper combinations. I really like the Glam one, the Citrine 6.0 and individual shade of the blues….all beautiful. Thank you.

I could look at these all day…and sometimes do. Good cue to use the CP orange palette. And boy do I want SG Biscotti. One of the most perfect neutrals ever for me, anyway. How can you search for all the birthstone color stories, to get a list of all of them? They’re all so dreamy.
