Hello my Beautiful People! It has been too long since I’ve posted to this blog. So much has been going on in my daily life. But things have finally calmed down enough for me to get back on here and post! Just in time for my favourite season. We had a strangely warm start to the season, but it’s actually beginning to cool down. Jackets are required sometimes, and makeup can be slightly heavier without it melting off in the heat. And I’m always excited to be able to do more with my makeup! So I’m here to outline my beauty picks for this season.
I’m into glitter. Shimmer and shine.
I always have been, but now more than ever. And that will be reflected in my choices. There is lots of shine to chose from, whether its highlighter, eyeshadow or loose glitter. Even on the lips! Let’s get started with the Eyes.
I have quite a few products and I think I’ll start with eyeliner. This is the perfect time of year to switch things up a little bit. How about trying a brown liner instead of black. It’s a little more subtle and natural than the contrast that a jet black liner usually offers. One of the eyeliners I’m loving are the NYX Liquid Brown Liner from the Chocolate collection. Its a nice change to the everyday liner. And if you want something a little more amped up, try on the Sephora Collection Long Lasting Eyeliner in 07. Glitter Brown. This is a deep brown liquid liner that has some copper coloured glitter in it. Perfect for bringing your day looks to the evening.
When it comes to eyeshadow, I have two palettes I was so excited to get a hold of. Neither of them are new, but I was a little late on the wagon. And there’s not much to say about them except that they are both full of fall appropriate colours! And also, I’m going to have so much fun playing with them. These are the Morphe 25A and the Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours the Brave palettes. Don’t they just remind you of autumn??
Finally for the eyes, I have these three loose glitter eyeshadows. I came across these when I was on Fashion Nova and I thought they were pretty. Glitter offers endless possibilities. Especially when they are this beautiful.
Of course I’m still in love with matte lips. So I recently found this brand called B’Ellegant who has some beautiful shades. Featured here I have Black Cherry, a very deep dark berry colour and Fall Photoshoot, a burnt orange/brown shade. I also put in the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the colour Berlin, which is a great nude brown for dark skin. On the shimmery side of lippies, I recently picked up this fun lip colour from Colourpop called 3-Way. It is an ultra Metallic lip and I really feel like this could be one of my new faves. Finally I have Jelly from Dose of Colors. A beautiful berry purple.
So unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would have heard about Rihanna’s new beauty line Fenty Beauty. I picked up a few of the products, and I am planning to do a little review, but for now, a couple of them made it to my favourites already. Her Matchstix are incredibly handy and easy to work with, so I have a shade for contour, a shade for undereye highlight, and two shimmer highlights. I picked up the KillaWatt Highlighter in Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule. Simply because I have nothing like it my collection. The deep pink shift and high shine is just what I need and they are so deep they could even double as blush. I love it when my makeup can multitask! And finally, the last highlighter I have is from Makeup Revolution in Shimmer Brick Rose Gold.
So these are all my beauty picks for fall 2017! I hope you liked them, and tell me if you want to try out any of these, or if you have already. What makeup do you like to wear in the fall?
