October Beauty Faves


Fall is here and I am loving it! The week has started off with some cooler temps and I am crossing my fingers it stays this way. I am ready for sweaters, scarves, boots and hot chocolate. 

Anyways, I have been living for some great products this month that I find myself constantly reaching for. I rounded up a mix of makeup and skincare that I have been absolutely loving. These products are so awesome and are definitely items I won't stop using anytime soon.

ONE // Tarte Palette
I will admit, I have a crazy obsession with matte palettes and this one has made my faves list. It is so amazing. Not only is it perfect for your eyes, but it is also awesome for countering your face. The powders are so creamy and not chalky at all, which can be hard to come by with matte shadows. I also love the mix of cool and warm tones so you can really do a lot with it. You do have to be careful when using it for your face though because the colors are so pigmented.

TWO // Milk Makeup Hydrating Oil
I am totally that girl who slathers oil all over her face before bed. I find that being in an office all day, my skin is just craving moisture. When I wake up each morning my skin has absorbed all the oil and feels hydrated for the day. I LOVE this oil stick from Milk. Not only is it SO convenient for travel, but it is a great face oil. It absorbs super quickly and doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy. I can't wait to bring this to New York at the end of the month to help fight off dry skin!

THREE // Laura Mercier Matte Caviar Stick
I love the original Caviar Sticks, but again me and my matte shadows. This is perfect. I have the shade Caramel for the best warm brown to put under my shadows. It is so natural and adds just enough definition. I even use it alone for the perfect daytime eye.

FOUR // Becca Face Primer
I go back and forth with face primers. I really love this one, though, because it doesn't feel like a primer. It honestly feels like I am putting on moisturizer. It makes my skin look so fresh and dewy with the perfect amount of glow. It also helps my makeup wear throughout the day. I even love using this on its own for a super natural look. It is lightweight and just amazing.

FIVE // OPI Cajun Shrimp
I am absolutely loving this red-poppy color right now. I always used to do the same color on my nails but recently started branching out. I decided to do this bright poppy and LOVE it. It looks amazing with a tan or without and is bright but still classy. I can't get enough. I also think the poppy color is sometimes more flattering than a flat red. Definitely try this one out for your next mani/pedi. I think it is the perfect color for fall and winter too, even though it is bright.

SIX // Clarins Exfoliating Cleanser
So I walked into Sephora and was like I want an exfoliating cleanser that doesn't add an extra step to my routine. The sales woman led me directly to this and I bought it on the spot. Not only does it have a refreshing, light citrus scent, but it seriously gets the job done. My face feels so clean after using this and rid of all the nasty pollution and dead skin. I use it at night with my Foreo and it is gentle enough to use every day if you wanted (depending on how sensitive your skin is). I typically do it every other night or so.
