Fall Makeup Picks
Welcome back my friends! Today I will sharing with you my fall makeup picks! Thanks to the lovely weather we are currently having in Florida, it is still summer here. However, to many of you it is now fall (and borderline winter) weather! Fall is my favorite season, I love the change in weather and the beautiful color change of the greenery! Of course, I always love the changing trends in makeup when fall occurs. I scanned my makeup collection and picked out pieces I know that I will use in the fall a lot more (and products I highly recommend to my friends!) That being said, lets get going to why I recommend this products!
Inglot AMC Eye Shadows - Review
One of my favorite eye makeup looks is using the gold (AMC Shine 07) and cranberry (AMC Shine 12) from this Inglot palette during the fall (this old blog post being an example of a similar look I've created using different makeup products!). I've raved about Inglot eyeshadows multiple times on this blog now and they are one of my favorite eyeshadows I own. If you have an Inglot counter near you, I implore you to go there and swatch your life away. I promise you that you will be impressed with the quality of these shadows.
Inglot AMC Pigment in 69
This antique gold pigment is to DIE for. While I have used this pigment in other months, this shade of gold will look stunning in the fall when its paired with cranberrys or green (example using the pigment). For those of you who are concerned with fall out, I can assure you that as long as you tap away the excess you should not have much issue with eyeshadow fall out.
Jordana Twist n Shine Balm Stains in Honey Love and Cranberry Crush
Jumbo lip pencils are a great lip product to have on hand. These ones by Jordana are moisturizing and the color intensity can be built up from sheer to medium! Honey Love is a darker nude that I love wearing when the weather gets warmer. Cranberry Crush is a perfect sheer berry or a bold statement. I don't see these having a staining effect, but I do enjoy them nevertheless.
Nars Blush in Deep Throat - Review
While Orgasm certainly gets a whole lotta love in the blogger world, I have to say that Deep Throat knocks it out of the park (in my humble opinion). This peachy pink blush has a slight amount of shimmer while Orgasm has a huge amount of shimmer which can make it slightly unwearable. My love for this blush is seen by my feature of Deep Throat in Top High End Blushes. Within the past month or so, I have consistently used Deep Throat on days which I have been wearing makeup. If there is one blush from Nars you should try out, definitely go for this one! I will certainly pick up the full size of this blush when I run out!
Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Enhancing Shadow & Liner Smokey Hazel Eyes
An old staple of mind in my makeup collection, I have to say that this little eyeshadow palette screams fall to me (thanks to the beautiful taupe and cranberry). This is a very well loved drugstore palette of mine and I used to travel with this constantly before the packaging broke on me! I highly recommend using a sponge tip applicator for these eyeshadows, for some reason or another using a flat eyeshadow brush won't pick up color as effectively with this formulation.
Sleek Blush by 3 in Pumpkin
I have fallen in love with blush in Pumpkin Pie (yes, the orange blush)! I initially did not think it would look good on me with my yellow undertone, but this blush gave me a really nice surprise! Its the main blush I use in the palette mainly because I'm too attached to it. A little bit of this bad boy goes a long way, especially if you have light/medium skintone. I use either the Elf Studio Complexion Brush or Real Techniques Multitasker Brush to apply and I have not had an issue with over application (but if you do accidentally over apply, just dab a bit of translucent powder on a brush and then start blending away!).
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Stellar
I hate to recommend a limited edition blush, but this is a honestly my favorite blush to wear during the colder months. This is a brown blush with a hint of shimmer that I adore (as seen by the fact that I have hit pan on it. If you don't like how brown this blush is, Exposed by Tarte is a bit more on the pink/mauver side from the swatches I've seen online.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette in Comfort Zone
This is another eyeshadow palette I love dearly (but pretty much only use in the colder months). On the left side, this palette has some beautiful browns that will create a beautiful natural makeup look. And on the right side, there is a complementary selection of greens. The right side has my favorite eyeshadow color, the definer color. I created a look here using this palette last holiday season and I have to say that this palette is worth getting just for this definer color. It's just that special!
