Loving Lately: Fall Makeup
Hello lovelies! Today when I woke up, I instantly grabbed my laptop and started brainstorming ideas for blog posts for the month of November. Today I decided to bring to you a few of my favorite beauty products I've been loving lately. Through the month of October and November, you can find me always rocking a darker, edgier look, all thanks to the fall season. I'm the type of gal that will rock a dark lip no matter what the season, but fall just helps me amp it up, just a bit more. Today I'm sharing four makeup products I can't get enough of, that are perfect to help you create the most bad ass, edgy fall look.
Loving Lately: Fall Makeup
Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad in Sage
Let me first start of by saying I was given this product by Sephora as gratis, so I was super pumped to receive an eye palette from them! I had been eyeing this palette for months, and to my surprise, it's like they knew! I received a big bag of goodies at our holiday meeting, and this was just one of the products in the bag. For the past two months, this has been my go-to palette for creating all types of looks. Of course I want to amp it up in the fall, and rock a sultry, smokey look but this palette allows you to do it all. I have dark brown eyes, so this green was perfect to compliment my overall look. On the bottom of this palette, it actually shows you where to put each eye shadow, making it easy to use for anyone. I did follow the instructions for the first few times, now I'm just playing around with all of the colors, creating my own unique look. I will say I am THRILLED with the pigmentation of this eye shadow palette, it glides on so smoothly and lasts all day-with help from a primer. If you're looking to rock a sexy, smokey eye this season, be sure to add this to your basket at Sephora.
Tokyomilk/Dark Everything & Nothing
This was another product I received as gratis in my holiday meeting at Sephora-how amazing is that? Sephora truly spoils their people and for that, I'm extremely grateful. When I initially saw this bottle of parfum I was worried I wouldn't like the smell. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous to begin with. I'm obsessed with the bottle, doesn't it just scream fall? I think so. This parfum has notes of: sweet orange, pressed petals, Desert moss, and tea leaves. Super earthy and filled with warm, dark notes. I would definitely describe this parfum as intoxicating. It's earthy, and dark, but still citrusy and sweet, an overall hypnotizing sensory experience. This parfum to me just screams fall, with its warm, dark notes, and a mix of spice. I've been rocking this fragrance for the past two months and I'm officially hooked! If you're looking to amp up your overall fall look, spray an earthy, dark fragrance such as this, or find your own signature scent.
Make Up Forever Aqua XL Eye Pencil
To me, when Fall comes in full swing, so does my eye liner! I'm always rocking a sharp winged liner, but for fall I do things a little differently. Using my favorite eye pencil from Make Up Forever, in the shade M-10 Matte Black, I can achieve any look, sharp or smokey. For starters, this is my go-to eye pencil for fall because of it's creaminess. It effortlessly glides on the eye, without force, tugging or pulling. Also, I love that this liner can easily be manipulated for up to two minutes before setting. I love being able to smudge, and play with my liner for a more smoky affect. For fall, I tend to do a lot more smokey looks with my eye liner, and this is exactly why I always reach for this eye pencil. I tend to forgo my sharp wing liner during the fall season, and go for a more sultry, romantic look. Also, this eyeliner last me ALL DAY! It stays on until you remove it, which I'm absolutely crazy about. This pencil also comes in a wide variety of shades, even bright, summer/spring colors. If you're looking to create the sexiest smokiest look of your life, you need this eyeliner in your life!
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen
I wont lie, even though I work for Sephora, I still love a good drugstore lipstick. Who doesn't love a good deal? At $6 and a wide range of shades, I'm obsessed with NYX, soft matte lip creams. I own about different shades, and I'm absolutely crazy over them! To begin, NYX is an amazing drugstore brand you can find just about anywhere, I buy mine at Target, Ulta or from their online store. I love that you can find just about any shade you're after, in multiple finishes between matte, glossy, or a balm. For fall, my go-to shade is Copenhagen, a dark berry color. What I love about this color, is that the more you layer it, the more intense it gets. I'm the type of girl that will rock any shade, but I'm always reaching for a dark burgundy, or berry, because it makes me feel confident. Copenhagen is a shade that's in between burgundy and berry, something you can't quite describe. I have super pale skin, so Copenhagen creates a whole lot of drama, which I love. This soft matte lip cream in Copehagen is affordable, and the perfect fall lip for any girl.
