Fall Makeup




Every fall I make one important change to my makeup routine: I switch over from my summer foundation to a fall foundation. The major difference? One is several shades lighter (haha!). I took the opportunity this year to do a little research, and pick a foundation that was a true match for my skin color and type (I have sensitive/combination skin that gets pretty dry in the winter!). Using Nordstrom's  Foundation Finder, I answered a few questions about my skin type and it recommended Laura Mercier's Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation. I went into the store to test it out, and it turns out that I'm a new fan! The foundation is medium coverage and very matte, which I LOVE. I hate for my face to get shiny, and this foundation combats it - since it's a liquid foundation, it's pretty moisturizing at the same time. I also ended up buying the Secret Camouflage Concealer to cover up dark spots & acne (my face is pretty clear of the most part, but I do tend to get hormonal acne on my chin). The concealer & foundation combo is a winner in my book! 

P.S. If you're looking for a new lipstick/gloss combo, the one I'm wearing is the BOMB and the perfect fall color for many different skin types. I mixed MAC's "pink plaid" lipstick with Dior's "trompe l'oeil" gloss. It creates a beautiful purple/burgundy/pink color! 

Hope everyone has a great Thursday :)

  10. I'm definitely going to have to try the lip combo! It makes such a pretty color! Have you tried Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation? It's the best and it combats my oily skin perfectly!

    1. Nope, I'm not wearing fake eyelashes here! I only wear them for special occasions. I normally wear L'Oreal Double Extend primer underneath my normal mascara - it makes all the difference!

  25. I wish I knew how your layers are cut and if you use extensions. My stylist gets shown pics of your hair on my phone every other month. Make my hair like this, please. :/

    1. Hey Dana! Nope, I don't wear extensions! I do ask for "long layers" whenever I get my hair cut. I'm due for a hair cut next week!
