autumn makeup edit

It's that time of year where I like to bring out my berry colored products and change up my make up routine to go with the cooler weather. My two go to lip products at the moments are Revlon's matte balm stain in Sulty- a brownish berry color with vintage vibes and Laura Mercier Healthy Lips which is a flattering sheer wash of berry.

These colors go perfectly with my new blush by Nars in Sin. This blush has been on my wish list forever now, and as fall approach I finally caved and bought it and I am so glad I did! It's a berry tone with gold shimmer and the perfect fall/ winter blush in my opinion. While it looks scary in the pan, with a light hand the shimmer gives a healthy glow to my pale skin and the plum shade is a unique and gorgeous color on the cheeks.

As for my eyes, I've been reaching for MAC's paint pot in groundwork. I like that this deepens the color of my lids but since it's matte, it can be quite understated. However, sometimes I want my eyes to pop more and that's when Stila's Kitten comes in. This shimmery neutral shade is loved year round, but lately I've been loving it as a bright inner corner highlight to balance out the darker tones on the rest of my face.

What are your favorite fall products?

fall music mix

As the seasons change, I always seem to get inspired to make a new compilation of songs I've been enjoying. Bands like Dead Man's Bones and Timbre Timber are quite eerie and atmospheric- perfect for getting in the Halloween spirit. I've also been loving the songs included by Jungle, Glass Animals and Sylan Esso which all are soothing yet hypnotic. Listening to music and going for walks in the park with a chai latte is my favorite thing to do this time of year.
