My Favorite Fall Accessories 

Fall is finally here! I absolutely love fall and everything that comes with it:) The pumpkin spice everything, warmer clothes, and delicious scents Bath and Body comes out with:) Here are some of my favorite fall accessories!

Germ-X is a must have product for me every day of the year but I looovveee the smell of Bath and Body’s during the fall time. Coconut Pumpkin Latte is by far my favorite! It’s 3 of my favorite flavors rolled into one great scent! Plus, with fall comes flu season and viruses, I wash my hands like a crazy person so this comes in handy when I can’t get to a sink right away. 

I use this palette basically everyday. But with colder weather comes warmer eyeshadows😂 This is my go-to palette! 

I love hats. In the summer i prefer hats to sunglasses I just think they are alot cuter. Beanies are one of my favorite things though 😍 My mom bought me this one last year and I love it because it matches alot of my outfits. I also have a purple one and teal. 

Obviously Im bad at taking pictures😝 I see these type of boots EVERYWHERE during fall. They are the pinterest shoe of fall basically. My friend talked me into buying these at a yard sale recently and I loovveee them! I normally don’t wear wedges or heels because I am tall anyways, but these are so cute I don’t care.  Oh and they wear only like 7$

BBW came out with this scent last year and I fell in love😍😍😍 I haven’t seen it yet this year though which breaks my heart:( It is sooo warm and cozy smelling! Plus the bottle looks like a cable knit sweater.. And yes I am the type of person who switches body sprays with the seasons😄

I also coordinate lipsticks with the seasons. These two from colourpop are my top picks for this fall. Aquarius is my perfect everyday color.  And Dalia is my favorite dark lipstick. (My little sister is also named Dalia:)

Tj said that he can also tell what season it is by looking at my nail polish. The two I bought for this fall are Essie’s Stylenomics (a dark forest green) and Sally Hansen’s Navy Fleet (a light colored navy). 

I hope you enjoyed this post! I love seeing people’s favorites and what they love! Have a blessed day!

10 Ways To Look Less Tired

It doesn’t matter if I get 8 hours of sleep or 5 hours, I always look tired. I have had dark circles under my eyes even when I was little. So with that being said, I have learned a thing or two about how to look awake, fresh, and rejuvenated:) 

1- Avoid dark colors 

Especially if you already have dark hair and eyes (like me), wearing a black shirt or even a dark lipstick can draw more attention to dark circles under your eyes. Even black eyeliner can drag you down. Try to opt out for an eyeliner that compliments your eye color. (I use copper or purple since I have brown eyes)

2-Wear your hair in a half up-do. 

With all of my hair up, I look tired. With all of my hair down, I look tired. But wearing a half up-do opens up and frames the face. Plus its in style now!

3- Use a color correcting concealer. 

Color correcting is definitely not something I was on board with. Except for peach toned concealers. I got mine from NYX for only 5$ and it really does make such a difference! I either just use the NYX concealer or layer it under my Nars Radiant Creamy concealer.

4- Wear earrings.

What better way to distract others from your dark circles than a pair of sparkly studs?! 😉 But really though, whenever I wear earrings it draws attention away from the center of my face and balances it out. I prefer 💎 studs or something sparkly.

5-Avoid matte finish makeup.

This may be debatable, but in my personal experience whenever I use matte foundation/concealer/lipstick, I tend to look more tired and flat. I prefer more dewy, glowy skin. Or even like a satin finish foundation because I feel like it looks more natural and healthy. (I’m not saying that everyone who uses matte finish foundation looks tired btw)

6- Wash your face with cold water. 

When you feel awake, you tend to look more awake and what else wakes you up like a splash of cold water? Personally I love washing my face with cold water in the mornings, though it did take some getting used to!

7- Use light/beige colored eyeshadows.

Whenever I’m in a rush I take a light pinky beige eyeshadow and apply it all over my lid and up to the browbone. This brightens up the whole eye area,makes your eyelashes stand out a bit more, and makes your eyes look bigger.

8- Use an eyecream.

I am a skincare junkie. I love finding new products that help better my skin. This eyecream by Clinique is fairly new and I got it with some of my Sephora points. A hydrated under eye area not only looks healthy and youthful, but also helps prep the skin for makeup. 

9-Keep it simple. 

Less is more. Whenever I wear a ton of eyeshadow and liner and blush and bronzer and highlighter etc etc….. Throughout the day it can make me look tired. Some nights I wash off my makeup only to find that I looked more tired with it on than I did without. So if you didn’t sleep a lot or have been traveling, or stressed lately try to keep your makeup simplistic.

10-COFFEE☕☕☕

I don’t really think this one deserves an explanation because isn’t coffee the answer to everything?😜

I hope some of these helped you and if you know of anymore let me know! Don’t stress away your joy over vanity (like i tend to do sometimes). Remember that God made you beautiful and for a purpose (dark circles and all)!!

Too Faced Natural Matte Palette Review

So for my birthday I went to Ulta and one of things I bought was this palette:) Ever since I got into makeup I have wanted the Too Faced Natural Eyes palette… Until they came out with the matte version of it!!

image

First of all… the packaging is goooorrgeous!! It’s a tin palette with almost a victorian flare to it:)

image

But even though they killed it on the packaging, it’s the inside that counts;)

I’m a sucker for neutral colors. Especially when it comes to eyeshadow. I honestly dont stray away from neutral colors very much. Every now and then I’ll throw in a purple, blue, or a peach. So these colors are some that I will get a lot of use out of.

This palette is designed for 3 different eye looks. A day look, classic look, and a fashion look which I guess is the most dramatic. It comes with a little pamphlet that shows you how to achieve each of these but honestly,  I haven’t even looked at it;P It is nice for beginners though!

This is my first Too Faced palette and when I bought this I expected great things. I have heard sooooo many good things about their palettes. Especially the chocolate bar ones! The only high-end eyeshadows I have to compare this palette to is Urban Decay, and Tarte (their shadows are amazing btw).

When I first used this palette I was surprised at how powdery they are. I felt like I kept having to apply shadow to get the color to show. Especially with Honey Butter, and Strapless. The longevity of these are about the same as my Urban Decay shadows. I used eyeshadow primer yet I still noticed some creasing. But thats normal for me because I have hooded eyes and oily eyelids (that just sounds weird right? ;P).

I swatched the darkest shade, Sexpresso, next to my Tarte eyeshadow in Picnic Basket.

That’s two swipes of Sexpresso and two swipes of Picnic Basket.

Tarte eyeshadows are soo creamy and buttery so compared to those, the Too Faced shadows are powdery. BUT….. compared to Urban Decay’s matte eyeshadows, Too Faced’s are more pigmented.

So, in simpler terms… I would put Too Faced right in between Urban Decay and Tarte.

Here’s some of my favorite shades:) (I marked them with a really cheesy heart sticker in case you can’t tell;)

Would I recommend this palette to a friend? – Absolutely!

Would I repurchase this palette? – Yes. I love the colors and the size of this palette. Plus it’s been the only shadows I’ve used since I got it!

Would I rate this in my Holy Grail makeup products? – For now, yes I would! But who knows what the future holds so of course that could change;)
