After uploading my Top 5 Eyeshadow Palettes post, the requests to recreate my makeup started pouring in on Snapchat and Instagram. I honestly didn't think anyone would comment on my eyeshadow look, but little did I know that you guys were going to love it. This is a much different makeup than what's been circulating on YouTube, so I can definitely see the appeal. For this look I decided to play with plum and pumpkin tones, aka two fall basics. I don't think many people would think of pairing plum tones with a "pumpkin spice" type of color, but I personally think the both colors look amazing together. All the eyeshadows used for this look come from the incredibly affordable Juvia's Place The Nubian 2 palette which I've been obsessed with as of late.
Hourglass. This year's palette includes a universally-flattering powder, bronzer, two blushes, and a highlighter. Not only are the powders stunning, but so it the beautiful marbled packaging. Being the marbled obsessed blogger that I am, I nearly lost my shit when the promotional images started appearing all over my Instagram feed. I honestly wonder why a brand hadn't tapped into the marbled obsession sooner, but leave it up to Hourglass to create an elegant looking palette for the holidays.
Sephora (as any girl who's obsessed with makeup does) and proceeded to spend over an hour walking around and swatching items. I went into Sephora with absolutely no intention of buying a foundation but then a certain powder foundation caught my eye. I will completely honest with you when I say that the Sephora Collection makeup hasn't really appealed to me much, but something about the Sephora Collection Matte Perfection Powder Foundation really made me think twice. I literally had to go on the Sephora app to look up reviews and once I saw the near to perfect score, I went ahead and purchased it. If you're someone who's lazy or doesn't like a complicated makeup routine, then you better listen up!
Nuxe is one of the wonderful French skincare brands that I was lucky enough to discover when I was studying abroad in Paris. I'm sure you've heard me rave about the Rêve de Miel Lip Balm one too many times before. That is my holy grail lip balm and it's one of the most irreplaceable products in my skincare routine. In fact that's been my go-to lip balm for almost 5 years now, so that's goes to show how much I love and trust Nuxe as a skincare brand. Apart from the lip balm, Nuxe is also known for their famous (dare I say iconic) Huile Prodigieuse. There wasn't a French pharmacy that I would walk into where I wouldn't see bottles among bottles of that beautiful gold oil. Well if you're a fan of the Huile Prodigieuse, then you might want to look into the Crème Prodigieuse range. In this post I'm going to be talking about the Crème Prodigieuse Eye Cream which has replaced all my other eye creams and is now that only thing I use in the day and at night.
Birchbox has me completely covered! This month's theme was reviving and restoring products, which is absolutely perfect for me since the air in San Diego has been drying my skin quite a bit. I was very excited when I saw a Tata Harper product as a sample choice, so I went ahead and got it. I feel like I've been hearing a lot about Tata Harper skincare products a lot as of late, so you can imagine how excited I am to see if her products live up to the hype. I also got a product from a brand that I've been very curious about in this month's box.
Dollar Tree, show how each product applies, and also how they wear throughout the day.
