Fall Make Up Updates

Monday, October 3, 2016

Make up is one of my favorite morning rituals, I am not particularly good {and I'm trying so hard to get better at it} but I still have so much fun experimenting with color and different ways I can do things. I did a Sephora and Nordstrom run recently and purchased some products to update my make up bag for Fall. I have been using them for about a month now and I figured right now would be a good time to share my thoughts with you:

1. Gwen Stefani for Urban Decay Eyeshadow Palette
Eye make up is the one area I know very little of. I've always been a one-eyeshadow kind of gal,  quickly rubbed it on with my ring finger add some mascara and boom! done.  As I'm growing older I'm getting more interested in classic looks such as the cat eye {have not figured out liquid eyeliner yet} and smokey looks. I saw this palette at Sephora and loved the subtle colors and matte/shimmery options it offered. I don't think I will be using the pink, blue and yellow tones not the last row but the rest of them are AMAZING. Super pigmented, stay on all day, blend easily and the colors are just gorgeous!

I know it's limited edition and quantities are running out quickly, if you can't find it, the NAKED palette is another great option with easy tones that can create different everyday looks.

2. Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade
The first two weeks of wearing this were quite...interesting. It took me a while to understand how this pomade works best to give me a natural look. It did cross my mind several times to return this little pod but I refused to give up. So glad I didn't! I love the way my eyebrows look now. It stays on all day, it's super easy to apply and correct {before it sets} and the color is perfect with my hair {I use Ash Brown}. Practice makes perfect when it comes to this pomade; should you decide to try it, it will take time to get it right, but once you do it's so easy and fast to get amazing eyebrows that last all day. The little brush is key, make sure your get it!

3. Maybelline Lash Sensational
This one is from Target and I'M OBSESSED!!! It's less than $8.00 and it gives me the most amazing eyelashes I've ever had. It does clump up in a weird manner when I take it off {so it's not a complaint at all, just interesting} almost like little layers of plastic, but it does come off easily and doesn't rub off.

4. Chanel Poudre Universelle Compacte
Perfect powder for my oily t-zone. Looks natural and it keeps everything looking fresh and intact through the day.

4. Buxom Lipgloss in Raspberry Sorbet
My favorite brand when it comes to lipgloss. Minty, cool and the perfect shade to wear every day to the office.

6. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Bronze (Travel Size)
I love BB Shimmer bricks, I have been eyeing the triple set from Sephora so I decided to get the travel size for this one. I've used the tones separately as eyeshadow and I love them. The glow is perfect for a night out.

7. Dior Limited Edition Fusion Mono Cream Eyeshadow
You know how I told you I am used to using my finger to apply a single shade of eyeshadow? Well, I kind of still do that with this....IT'S AMAZING! Lasts all day {even without primer!}, you can do a little for a light shimmery look, a lot for a full on gold eyelid and even run a little on your cheekbones for a soft glow. I'm obsessed! The rose gold tone goes perfectly with my skin tone. Favorite product so far.

Hope you have a wonderful week!
