my go-to makeup this fall

Colder days are here! I am very much excited to play with makeup (without the sweat) because I can be lazy AF on hot, humid days. I was given a foundation to try on by a good friend of mine that led me to go ahead and update my makeup stash. Currently these are my go-to products.

These are the ones I reach out for. From left: L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Lips Nude Allude (314), Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup in 2W0 Warm Vanilla, YSL Black Opium, Mac powder blush in mocha, L’Oreal Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick 232 Beige Couture, Becca Macaron Glow Kit, Hourglass ambient lighting powder blush in Diffused heat, Happy Skin X Love Marie Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie in Skinny dipping

On lipsticks I recently tend to go for the subtle warm color, as it less hassle to maintain thoughout the day. So its mostly MLBB shades with a bit of warm brown. As for the Estée Lauder foundation that was gifted to me, I love how lightweight it is on my skin! I blend it with a beautyblender and its good to go. For the blush, I now favor the classic Mac powder blush in mocha that lends a subtle color to the cheeks and I top it off with Hourglass diffused heat.

Since I am new to highlighters, and honestly a bit afraid to try it out. I worry that it might make my oily skin look greasy. So I decided to get the Becca macaron kit to try using a highlighter, thankfully it did not add to the oily-ness look. I usually go for the shade Opal, I apply this with a light hand and using a fan brush.. it leaves a soft glow on my skin. This makes me look rested and healthy.

For fragrance I am back to using Ysl Black Opium as it is a very cozy scent. Hopefully this weekend I get to sort out my fragrances, keep the summery ones in favor of the heavier, cold weather appropriate ones that I adore! 

I just need to add hunt for a few more things to my closet and I am ready for the holidays!

missing my make-up

I am missing my make-up bag. I seem to have lost them, along with some of my cosmetics/beauty tools.

the favorites of the lot

my favorites are in the land of the lost now. 

While it seems silly to be sad about a lost bag of make-up. I really do feel the urge to:

a.) scream like mad.

b.) run off to the nearest beauty counters and grab a replacement.

c.) cry and eat ice cream.

All of those seem pointless as of the moment. So, I just did a quick inventory of my stash and figured out what I lost.

Majolica Majorca Jeweling Eyes in SV887, Majolook Illuminator Eyeshadow in BR788, MAC Powerpoint Eyeliner in Engraved, My Curling Iron, Make Up Forever Mat Velvet Foundation, Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Mascara, a Shiseido Eyelash curler and lastly a mini sized Shu Uemura lash curler (for the tiny lashes on the edge of my eyes).

Lost quite a lot of items and those are worth a lot to me. As I have carefully collected mt stash and made sure the shade/s and tools are right for me.

I have nothing to wear on my face if i have a special occasion to go to. All that was left of my collection are my lippies and a few of my colorful eye shadow palettes. No more nude/ smokey eyes. Literally half of my make up is gone.

The only consolation is I don’t use make up daily.

 

Excuse me for a moment while I go eat ice cream.
