Fall Beauty Favorites






I have to admit: I love fall. Don’t worry, I’m not going to list a bunch of basic reasons such as pumpkins and blanket scarves, but I love it because I get to play with darker, moodier makeup palettes and I’m not sweating my life away, meaning my skin isn’t super shiny all day long. It also isn’t winter, where my skin is about as dry as the Sahara Desert. Win win, my friends!

Here are a few of my favorite beauty products of the season. Plus, I’m teaming up with a bunch of fabulous bloggers and we’re giving away three Sephora gift cards! Now is your chance to try some of my beauty favorites!

  1. Lorac ‘Enchanting Elegance’ Palette

    This Eye and Cheek Palette from Lorac is both insanely budget-friendly, and excellent quality! The only thing I wish it had was a rich purple for the eyes, but other than that, these colors are all in heavy rotation for this fall. 

  2. Function of Beauty Custom Shampoo

    I’m not going to lie: I was a little tentative to try this. I normally stick to hair products that are specifically made for natural hair since I don’t have that much luck with mainstream hair products. However, when the folks at Function of Beauty asked if I wanted to sample some of their products, I’d figure I might as well try it.

    Natural hair ladies: I was impressed! You can either opt for the curly OR the coarse hair option, which blew my mind. You also list 5 problems with your hair that you wanted to fix: I said my hair was damaged, dry, and needed some deep conditioning. They sent over both a shampoo and conditioner and it was a gamechanger, guys. My hair was soft, moisturized, and felt incredibly healthy after using it. Highly recommend for you all to make your custom shampoo/conditioner set as well!

  3. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in ‘Consuming Red’

    My best friend has rocket a NARS lip pencil, and I’ve always semi stolen it. So I finally decided to get one of my own, and I absolutely love it! It’s a great lip color you can just throw in your bag and go, plus it doesn’t dry out your lips like a matte lipstick would. I love the shade “Calming Red,” it’s a rich color that’s still subtle enough for everyday wear on my skintone. This for sure won’t be my last NARS lip pencil!

  4. Make Up For Ever Mattifying Primer

    So fun fact: I actually have the whole set of Make Up For Ever’s primers: I have combination skin, and it gets crazy oily in the summer, and it needs a ton of moisture in the winter. Since it doesn’t get super cold until November here in D.C., I’m still using the Mattifying Primer while we’re still enjoying the warmer weather. It helps minimize the amount of shine greatly, and it’s something I put on daily!

  5. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup Remover

    GUYS. I don’t think I’ve been this excited for a new product ever. After I saw some of my Blog Societies friends raving about this product, I figured I had to try it for myself. My local Sephora hadn’t even put this product on the shelves yet, but they were nice enough to dig it out of their shipment boxes just for me!

    I don’t think I’ll go back to my old makeup remover wipes anytime soon after using this! Not only does it do a great job at removing my makeup, but it cleanses and nourishes my skin so it doesn’t feel dry or dull afterwards. It feels super luxurious, and makes taking off makeup fun in a unique sort of way. Trust me, you guys need to try this ASAP!

Now…it’s time for a fabulous giveaway! I’ve teamed up with an amazing group of bloggers to give THREE WINNERS a chance to win: a $175 Sephora Gift Card!

  7. Love your fall beauty favorites. I have the Function of Beauty shampoo and love it. It works well when you have hair color too to help hold the color longer. I need to try the IT makeup remover. I’ve heard good things about it.
