Fall Makeup and Outfit

I’ve been under the weather so I’ve not been wearing anything other than pjs for a few days lol. I don’t consider myself a fashionista but makeup and fashion go hand in hand more often than not so I thought “why not”.

For the makeup:
Eyes are Makeup Geek (MUG) Envy, Prom Night, and Peach Smoothie
With Coastal Scents (CS) dark mango in the crease and lower lash line
Lumikki Cosmetics Pigment in Forbidden Love.
Revlon lashes cut in half. I don’t know the style.
Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow for the brows.

Blush is MUG Romance and Bronzer is MAC Careblend Pressed Powder in Dark.
Foundation is Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation

Lips are Anastasia Dip Brow in Medium Brown with OCC Lip Tar in Hush over top to make a nice taupe brown color.

Outfit details:
J Crew Navy Cardigan
Grey Tank
AE Cropped De-stressed Jeans (pretty sure they’re boyfriend jeans)
Camel Booties from Rue 21 

Jewelry:
Bracelets are from a boutique in my town called The Boutique.
Monogram Gold Watch is from Etsy (you can pick different backgrounds as well)
Necklace and Earrings are from Forever 21

Product of the Week!

This week my stand out product is Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Sand Sable. This is supposedly the dupe for NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard. I do not know if it is or isn’t but I can tell you this is a nice concealer.  The color is what I’m always looking for which is something with more yellow undertone as opposed to beigey pinks or just plain beige. I like yellow to highlight and it just is what I need for my skin. The formula is really nice I think as well as the finish. It’s not super thick and creamy, it’s a little more thin and dries like a satin I would say. This is huge for me because I used it instead of my MAC pro longwear concealer today and LOVED IT. I will say though the MAC one has just a little better coverage though (just a little) but still this is amazing. A-MAZING. Ok I’ll stop now. This is huge for me though because I’ve never found a concealer at the drugstore that I loved. I have the LA Girl concealers and they do pretty good but the yellow concealer in those oxidize a little and get like a dark yellow. However, I do really like them for correcting under eye circles when I combine the Creamy Beige and Classic Ivory together. 

Have a great week!
