It’s already the end of the first week of October. Where has the year gone?!
September was full of getting myself in the fall mindset and praying for weather here in gorgeous sunny California that allowed for flannels, boots, and sweaters. Well, I didn’t get my wish about the cooler weather, but I have had the chance to crack out some of my fall makeup.
I’m not sure about you, but personally, my entire makeup routine changes as the seasons do. I can’t wear the same foundations, concealers, powders, primers, or other products like I do in the summer months. To be honest, in Fall I want to prance around as a beautiful warm toned matte princess, rocking bold colors and deep tones.
So as September is the official start of fall, I pulled out all my old favorites and some new products that I have found recently. And let me tell you guys, I fell in love with some amazing products that I can already tell are going to be on repeat all season!
Let’s start at the beginning with foundation. I am super picky when it comes to my foundations in the fall because I prefer much more full coverage in the cooler months. In the summer I don’t mind a little bit of my skin and glow shining through. I picked up the L’oreal Infallible Total Coverage Foundation and was hooked from the very first use. I will say this, if you have more oily skin, I’ve heard people say that this breaks up on their skin but for normal or dry skin this is so perfect if you like some full coverage.
Even with the full coverage foundations, girl, the dark circles are real. And I’m not talking like oh you didn’t get good nights sleep dark circles, I am talking like you look like you haven’t slept since the day you were born type dark circles that look really purple against my pale skin. Enter, LA Girl HD Pro Concealer. This product saved my life when I finally picked it up, it makes me look like I’ve slept a solid 9 hours, had three cups of coffee and meditate on a regular basis, even when I slept 2 hours, drank an entire pot of coffee, and feel like a zombie.
And of course, because I still want to be bronze goddess even in fall, I can’t forget an oldie but a goodie in my Physcians Formula Bronzer in Light Bronze, which is the most perfect matte bronzer, especially for fair girls because its so easy to build use without worrying about over pigmentation or looking orange on pale skin. I use more shimmery bronzers in the summer but this one is so soft. buttery and matte for fall that I usually have a couple laying around.
I recently got a Pur Soirée Diaries eyeshadow palette in my Boxy charm, and guys I am so obsessed! The shades are so gorgeous for creating great neutral eye looks with perfect shades for setting your eye shadow primer, to transition shades to deeper shades for the crease as well as some shimmers if you want to add a pop of something extra.
And of course, who can forget about lip colors? I have been looking for a great drugstore lip scrub for a while that will exfoliate my lips before putting on some of my fav matte colors and the Milani Keep It Sweet Sugar Scrub is the best one I’ve found. It smells so good, and does such a good job of getting me pout ready for lipsticks! I usually don’t wear like any kind of lipstick in the summer because I just feel like my lips are to dry and its to much work, but I adore fall lip colors! I am loving the Lorac Pro Matter Lip Color in Pink Taupe, It lasts so long on my lips and is so comfortable and easy to put on! I’ve also fallen in love love recently with the Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes. I love the shades Devotion and Loved. They are so pigmented and long lasting, and they smell like cupcakes!
The finishing touch to any makeup look is a bomb setting spray to make everything melt into the skin and look flawless all day long. In the month of September I could not stop using the Milani Make It Last Spray. It is so good, I went through an entire bottle of it in a single month. Yes, I know that sounds excessive but its just so perfect and makes my makeup look so flawless.
These are products that will be on repeat all season long for sure and were favorites all month long in September. What are some of your favorite beauty products? What are some new products you’ve recently tried and can’t get enough of?
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for reading!
