Well, well it’s finally time for the weather to cool down here in good old Texas. Although it has been “fall” here for several months, I feel like the weather is finally chilly enough to wear my favorite colors. Yes I love my turquoise, coral, and peach, but deep down my favorite makeup colors are peacock, cranberry, chocolate, and burgundy.
I know some might some say I’m too “pale” to wear these dark colors, but screw it. Wear what sings to your heart. That is why I love makeup, I can actually wear my favorite colors instead of just looking at them. Take the peacock eyeshadow from the Wet N’ Wild Comfort Zone Palette. I love this color…
I call it peacock, but it is really a teal/burgundy duo chrome color that many brands do well. But the Wet N’ Wild is one of my favorites. I love the Comfort Zone Palette so much. It looks like a crazy bunch of colors that don’t go well together, but they somehow do.
I used this palette almost exclusively for this eye look today.
Some other October/fall favorites, of course the best highlighter ever, BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal.
I have a whole post on this if you want to read more about it. In October I also found a facewash to help with my crazy combo skin of late. It’s oiler than a greaseball one moment, and than the next it’s as dry as the Sahara. The facewash I have down, thanks to Neutrogena Ulta Gentle Daily Cleanser. Now I just need to find a good moisturizer. Any suggestions?
And then there is my hair dilema. I am growing it out for the wedding, and I just don’t know how to deal with long hair, there I said it! I have had a shoulder length LOB, or a little longer for 8 years now. Therefore for hair that looks like this:
Is almost impossible for me to tame! But the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finishing Spray is a little baby miracle. I can just blow dry my hair straight or curl it, and than spray this guy everywhere. It just makes my hair look a little smoother, a little sleeker, a little more like I know what the heck I’m doing with this long hair. That is why it is a favorite!
Alright I am back to binge watching my new favorite show Scandal. Thank god for Netflix and Olivia Pope, why have I waited so long to watch this show? If you haven’t go, watch, now. That is all! Stay tuned and stay original!
