Fall is finally here! Bring on the crisp weather, pumpkin flavored things and burgundy lips! I have been trying a bunch of new makeup products lately and wanted to share which makeup and beauty items I am so excited about using for fall- along with some tried and true favorites!
A pre make up routine is fundamental to making your look flawless and long lasting- not to mention help prevent wrinkles and skin damage. I remove any remaining make up (hello raccoon eyes!) with the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Make up and rinse clean. (this stuff seriously melts off your makeup!) I then usually start my make up routine with Cosmedix’s SPF moisturizer and let dry completely. Next I add some IT Bye Bye Pores Primer + Too Faced Eyeshadow Primer. I finish off with the IT Lip Revive to moisturize my lips and the Pixi by Petra Milky Mist for an extra boost of hydration.

If you only get one thing from this post- it should be the IT Cosmetics CC cream. Seriously guys it is amazing! The It Cosmetics Bye Bye under eye illuminator works wonders as well. For a little bit of T zone highlighting I like to use the Benefit Watt’s Up highlighting stick. For powder and bronzer I love the seamless finish of the Physicians Formula Insta Ready BB powder and Bronzer. Never have to worry about your powders being cakey! For blush I am addicted to the MAC gingerly and coppertone colors. I have yet to find other blushes I like as much as!

I will admit, during the warmer months I tend to stray away from eyeshadow- but fall means bolder eyes! I recently receive the IT Cosmetics Super Hero Eye Palette and am in love with the colors. The fact that the palette has anti aging elements is another reason to love it in my book! Two palettes I have used for a while during the fall months is the Too Faced Natural Eye and the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette- actually these two palettes have more neutral and warm tones in them that I can use all year round in addition to some great smoky eye options!
Brows and Eyelashes:
Mascara is the least favorite part of my routine. Many mascaras I feel as if I need to put a zillion coats on to see results. The IT Superhero and the L’Oreal Feline Mascara’s go on smooth and generous. I LOVE! For lower lashes I discovered Pixi by Petra’s lower lash mascara that has the daintiest little wand which works like a charm. When I am looking for a bolder look at night I love the L’Oreal Voluminous Liquid Eyelines (which goes on so sleek and smooth) and an old favorite- Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeliner (I like blank and a dark coal color). For the grand finale there is the IT cosmetics brow power- Ladies- this brow pencil is amazing and actually adjusts to your eyebrown hair color!

Depending on the day I will throw on some lip color. If I am feeling bold and glamorus I will go with a dark burgundy- my favorite being Bite Beauty in Beet root (super dark), NARS velvet matte (medium) and Revlon in Red velvet (slightly lighter). During fall I also like to go for a good red and love the Maybelline are you red-dy. For a more suddle/ day look I love the
