Did you ladies have an awesome weekend? I spent some quality time with family and was spoiled with great food. While yesterday was a complete wash out, we all just lounged around in our PJ’s OD’ing on reality show marathons. It was a very relaxing way to say goodbye to the summer. I’m still kinda sad to see my favorite season go, I do have something else to look forward to – new makeup collections, getting my beauty bag season ready, and my birthday! Trust me the official countdown has already begun (t-minus 6 days).
To help you get Fall ready, here are six things to have in your make up bag.
Cold weather can wreck havoc on dry skin so amping up the moisture is essential. Going for a heavier cream can do the trick. Applying a little before bed can help restore your skin after a long day while you get that beauty sleep.
Matte Red Lipstick
The classic red lip is going anywhere and I’m pretty excited that I can stay on this beauty trend for a few more months! Instead of going the glossy or shimmer route, a matte finish is the trend this season (which is all right with me!)
This girl can never get enough black liner! I had fun with the colored ones this summer but I’m ready to get back to the basics. Besides, thick liner and fancy cat eyes are a big beauty trend this Fall.
This is another hot shade this Fall as well as one of my favorite colors to wear. Instead of going bold and bright, taking the subtle and sultry approach with this color is the way to go for Fall.
Grey Nail Polish
Ya’ll know I’m not the biggest nail polish person but one shade that’s grown on me these past few years is grey. I wouldn’t mind rocking a grey mani or two. And don’t forget the sparkle action for some fun!
After all that summer fun, the Fall means back to the grind for a lot of us with the holiday’s creeping around the corner. Having a quick and easy beauty look to fall back on makes life so much easier. That’s why having a collection of gorgeous neutral shadows is essential his season.
What about you? What are you adding to your beauty bag this season?
