I’m all about easy. These days I rarely have enough time to take a shower AND put makeup on, so a great, fast makeup product is gold. I love a bronze shadow and cream formulas are so easy to use.  They look great from morning to night, and compliment all skin types and eye colors. Major bonus for not having to use a brush to apply. I’ve rounded up a few of my faves.  Simply rub a bit of product on your lids, using a clean finger and blend.  Voila!

Fall is pretty much here (except for the 90 degree heat in SoCal right now).  Pumpkin spice lattes are abundant, and Halloween stores are stocking up for the holiday. I’m all about fall makeup and while a dark lip can be worn year ’round, I tend to break it out more in the cooler months.  Groomed brows and dark lashes are all you need to pull off bold lips. It’s appropriate for day as well as night, and can be sheered out by blotting if you’re not quite ready to commit.  I’ve rounded up my current faves from balms to glosses.

A girl can never have enough lipgloss right? Thought so. I’m forever on a quest to find the best formula and color and I probably find a new favorite every month. This month’s obsession is ILIA’s lipgloss in “Heartbeat”. It’s a bright red hue, but can be sheered out by dabbing just a little bit on the lips.  It’s hydrating, smooth, and smells amazing.  It’s the perfect pick-me-up and can take you from a casual office, to a date.
