Fall Beauty Favorites

At the beginning of every season I like to evaluate and reassess my makeup bag for items that might have to be put away (or thrown away - remember always check your makeup shelf life!) for the new shift in weather. I tend to make the necessary replacements and sometimes along the way I also pick up new to me beauty products and gadgets that come highly recommend. Today I thought I’d do the same and share some of the new additions to my cosmetic bag.

bareMinerals BARESKIN Liquid Foundation - This past summer bareMinerals debuted their first ever liquid foundations advertised as the first of its kind. No silicon, no oils, no parabens, no a lot of the stuff that tends to clog your pours and hurt your skin. A ton of blogger did reviews and convinced me that this stuff was liquid gold so I bought myself a tub along with the perfecting face brush that is sold separately and highly recommended. Truth time: I already have rather oily skin and using the bareMinerals BARESKIN liquid foundation only added additional shine to my face. Not what I wanted at all so I waited it out for cooler temps. Now that I’m not in the desert heat I have to say that my thoughts on the foundation have changed. I love how light weight it is and that that you can play customize coverage. So summer no, fall yes!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Kit - So this is actually a product that I have been using for a couple of years now. Keira of A Pretty Penny recommended it and I’ve never looked back. I recently realized that I hadn’t included the kit in any of my beauty posts so it had to make the cut this time around. This season I am dubbing it the Season of the Brows! I have been working on growing mine out and creating a more defined, dramatic, thick brow and this product is helping me look more fierce;)

bareMinerals Bare Radiance - A product that creates natural luminous skin? Sign me up! It’s a great powder to dust on after all of your makeup has been applied to help things set and a great product to apply after filling in brows!

Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Push-Up Liner - a gel liner pen that lasts, doesn’t smudge, and creates some maaajor drama. So easy to apply and creates an accurate angled line that doesn’t budge. I’m still trying to master the push-up thingy without overdoing it but I would highly recommend this product!

Pixi Spoolie Brush - this brow brush has helped me shape them up before applying the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow powder.

Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller - I watched a Jaclyn Hill makeup tutorial on Youtube (do it now!) and she used this to help minimize and hide her dark circles and it worked like magic so I bought it that afternoon. No joke it really works. It works as an illuminator that somehow reflects light. Add a little concealer and your set!

What are some of your favorite beauty products?

This is what I wore for my high school reunion this past weekend. When I was trying to figure out what I’d be wearing, my ultimate goal was to feel fantastic while still wearing something very reminiscent to my typical style. I went through my limited wardrobe and scoped out the situation. Peplum was an obvious choice as its a silhouette that has never failed me. First half, check! The bottom half of the ensemble was a little harder to figure out. I was originally going to pair this peplum with the faux leather skirt from Savers (last seen here) but loved the fun hem and quilted pattern of this little number. After a quick look in the mirror I was certain that this pairing was exactly what I was going for. A little edge, a lot of sass and some definite attitude (without over doing it, of course)

It was such a surreal experience to see the familiar faces of my youth, with a little more age and wisdom behind their eyes, was strange. We are all adults now. It was so great to chat and catch up with people, I had such an amazing time. Excited for the 20th!

Wardrobe Remix Vol.11

Just in time for fall, it was only natural that I dedicate the eleventh edition of the Wardrobe Remix to my favorite navy blazer! This baby has seen me through some great Arizona Fall days and will be an exceptionally great commodity for the east coast fall I’m about to experience. I can’t wait to style this little darling up for the cool, crisp days ahead!

How to Style: Fall Boots

Every year when Fall rolls around I tend to become boots obsessed! To be more specific, I become obsessed with ankle boots. There’s just something about ankle boots that makes my heart pitter-patter! While I tend to gravitate toward styles that are flat this year I’ve had my eye on ones with a stacked heel. I can’t walk on an itty-bitty heel and not look drunk, so the support of a stacked heel is always a thumbs up for this gal. 

Anyway, today I’ve rounded up some of my favorite stack heeled ankle boots for Fall and ways on how to style them up! I’ve also brought you a couple more options because what girl doesn’t like options. Am I right? Oh and all options are under $100!

Look 1: (All items under $40!) The hat may bring the boho but the booties sure do bring the glam! Whether for a day playing tourist in our own city or an easy breezy brunch with the girls, this peep toe stacked heel option adds a little something to any outfit pairing. I also love the touch of gold!

Shop look 1: Tee | Midi Skirt | Hat | Bucket Bag | Boots 

Look 2: Perfect for an easy date night, this feminine look is sweet with a little extra somethin’ something’. The cutout of this bootie option keeps it on trend while the neutral color make it easy to pair with absolutely anything from a sweet floral frock to a pair of cuffed black skinnies and cute peplum top!

Shop look 2: Jacket | Dress | Necklace | Boots

Look 3: This look is probably my favorite! I love the comfort both the distressed boyfriends jeans and the sweatshirt bring to the table but the the booties, complete with a fringe zipper, add that little touch of cool that elevates the typical slouchy outfit.
