Happy Monday everyone and Happy OCTOBER!!!! I can't believe summer is officially over and it's time for all of our wardrobes to change. I don't know about you guys but I LOVE how this weather makes all of my outfits SO cozy!! Wear any chunky knit with a pair of leggings and some cute booties and not only will your comfort levels be thanking you... you'll look OH SO fashionable while doing so!!!! OH AND you can never go wrong with an ALL BLACK outfit... am I right!?! Easy peasy comfy outfits... What could be better!?!?!?
As we transition into fall, (which I am beyyyyyond exicted about!!!) I thought I'd pay one last homage to my love of pastels, blush tones and whites! I'm all about breaking the rules when it comes to seasonal colours...don't get me wrong, I do love fall fashion, but too many dark fall tones can get quite depressing!! Separate these pieces to mix them with deeper colours, and they're all the perfect fall staples!
I know you've all been requestins a post on my beauty routine, so TODAY'S the day!!!!! My lovely makeup artist Kaitlin Hargreaves is sharing my favourite makeup products and every day routine with all of you!!!
First I PREP the skin with MAC fast response eye cream, gently massaging under and around the eye. Next, I use Eminence coconut moisturizer. Be sure to use Embryolisse moisturizer for very dry skin.
For the cheeks, I contour with a Ben Nye medium brown powder color from the top of the ear towards the mouth, ending two finger widths from the mouth. Apply Christian Dior blush in "lucky pink" on apples and bring upwards onto cheek bones and temples. Lightly dust Christian Dior nude bronzer in "Cinnamon" on high points (forehead, temples, cheeks, nose, chin.)
Can't get enough of this CAMO trend right now...basically theeee perfect transition as we head into Fall, wouldn't you say?! Sharing a few of my favs with you today!!! And if you're scared of prints, muted camo is a GREAT place to start!
