Fall Beauty

img_2221.jpg

Saturday September 22nd is when Autumn 2018 officially starts, are you ready?! Well ready or not, it’s here! There’s Fall and Halloween decorations everywhere, pumpkin spice is in the air, and stores are already selling you on that must have sweater! Meanwhile here in LA, I’m still frolicking around in my rompers and crop tops…

One of my favorite things about Fall is not only the awesome fashion, it’s all the beauty products and creations that come to L-I-F-E! That darker, more bold makeup look is back in town. Many brands are showing off all their hot new collections, and beauty bloggers are showing off their Fall lewks. I’ll be sharing with you guys some of the great shades I’ve come across from six different brands. They’re all right on the ball with this seasons color trends, so take your pick!

 

YSL

YSL has amazing hues for their new Fall collection. They hit the trend on reds, blues, and earth tones perfectly. Whether it’s for your lips, face, or nails they’ve got something just for you! Check out their collection and see for yourself!

 

DOLCE & GABBANA

Gorgeous hues in matte, and shimmer for this new season from Smashbox! I’m dying for all the shimmer shadows! The amazing eye palette you see last, which is also the first picture on this post, is called ‘Sunlit Yellow’ and it’s only $29. Not bad at all ladies! Check out what’s new on their website.

 

DIOR

Dior has always been one of my favorites for lipsticks and glosses. They offer so many great shades, and different textures. This look was created by @peterphilipsmakeup using two of Dior’s new Ultra Rouge Lipsticks. They’re ultra shiny, with a semi matte finish, and amazing hydration for your beautiful pouts. Dior has 25 shades currently, and each lipstick goes for $37 on their website.

 

CHANEL

Chanel has got this Fall on lock when you see their newest collections. I mean look at those deep hues. Their olive-green hits right on Pantone’s ‘Martini Olive’ AW18 color trend forecast, check my previous post for more on Pantone’s AW18 color trends. The pods are Chanels ‘Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow’ and the green beauty is color ‘836- Vert Metal.’ Nordstrom carries them and they go for $36, not bad for such an elegant satin finish!

 

FENTY

We all know how Rihanna changed the game of the beauty industry when she brought out her own brand last year. She has some of the best lip colors and textures out there! Fenty ‘Mattemoiselle’ has some of the top shades for this season, and they are only $18 each!

Santa’s coming! I know him! I know him!

Santa’s coming! I know him! I know him!

We’re officially in Holiday mode, and 24 days away from Christmas!!! Where did the year go?! I’m not complaining though, I’m obsessed with the festive lights and decorations.

Have you been shopping for your loved ones with all these Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales?! I’m totally guilty of doing some damage myself, there’s always so many great deals. This year I also dedicated some time for shopping for things that I personally needed. Home appliances and decor, some lounge/cozy clothes, intimates, a warm coat. I’m pretty proud of myself for starting my shopping early and getting everyone in my family covered. December in general is such a crazy busy month for me because I have so many birthdays in my family, and then it’s immediately hit by Christmas. Before you know it, BAM it’s New Years! Anyone else feel me on this?

Haven’t done much shopping yet? Or just quite haven’t found the right gift? Don’t fret! I got you covered with some awesome finds below. Gifts for her, him, and even your pets!

While some of those crazy Thanksgiving sales are done, there are still LOTS of sales happening online and in store. I prefer online shopping though, do you?

Calling all Beauty lovers!

Below is where your heaven is…

There are so many options for gift giving this season, and some don’t even need to be popular items. Donating food, toys, and warm clothes are great ways of giving. I make sure each year to help donate to as much as I can personally afford. This past year I have donated well over 10 bags of old furniture, and clothing to help others who are in need. Volunteering at your nearest shelter is also a great way to give back. This season is all about love and giving and it’s a great way to put your own personal touch of warmth to it. I hope you enjoyed my finds for gifts, and would love to hear if any of you have these items/have purchased them.

Happy Holidays loves!

 

XO,
