Fall is here! When I think of fall I think of Halloween, lots of good TV series and yellow and orange leafs falling off the trees. Are you excited yet? I know I am. Here are my makeup favorites for fall!
My first fall favorite is the Naked 2 eyeshadow palette by Urban Decay. I had been wanting to get a hold of one of these for such a long time, and each time I decided to purchase one, if was sold out at Sephora. Then finally, I bought this palette at an airport this summer, and even for a discounted price (yay!).
My favorite eyeshadow is Bootycall (3rd from the left) – perfect for highlighting the inner corners of your eyes, brow bone, and I even use it as a highlighter on my cheekbones sometimes. As you can see, I am all about that shade.
My second favorite is Snakebite (6th from the left) which I happen to use on a daily basis without even thinking much about it. It is a great eyeshadow for blending and implying a more defined crease.
Even though I love the Naked 2 palette, I find that there are some colors missing that I use for my daily eyeshadow. I love using the NYC palette in my routine because it holds perfect colors that work for both day and night looks.
One is the Union Square palette (938) for brown eyes. It was actually pretty random that I came across this eyeshadow palette. I was on a two-day trip to Dublin and I desperately needed an eyeshadow palette; when I grabbed this one since it was cheap and looked wearable. Never had I thought it would become one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes!
It contains four shades: one white neutral base color, two brown ones and a deep purple shade, as well as a highlighter and concealer in the side.
As you see these three colors go fantastic together by themselves though I am most addicted to the deep purple shade that looks amazing with both Bootycall or Half Baked (gold shade) from the Naked2 palette, depending on the mood and occasion.
Browsing through a catalog on a plane trip this summer, I couldn’t resist buying this Benefit kit since it fitted so perfectly with the theme “She’s so… Jetset”. And I am so glad I did because it is absolutely adorable!
I love the earthy eyeshadow colors and the scented blush perfect for a “no-makeup makeup” look. I have tried the full-size mascara They’re Real before and I wasn’t a huge fan of it, but at the moment, I really like to layer it on top of my Lancome mascara. It gives my lashes a more voluminous feel. The palette also comes with a Ultra Shine lipgloss that smells like bubblegum. Yum. I haven’t tried the Porefessional yet but I should probably give it a try.
These are three products I love carrying in my purse. Now that it is getting colder I have either my Carmex lip balm that I bought in Dublin or my EOS lip balm (in Summer Fruit) on me. They’re both great for dry lips and cold weather. I also like to carry a hand creme with me on colder days, and this is my all-time favorite!
It’s by Alterra, bought in Germany in a beauty chain called Rossman. It has the perfect size for carrying in your purse, smells amazing and is good for both hands and nails. My bad German tells me it’s got Vitamin E and shea butter.
