This month I have a ton of beauty favorites. Over the last year, even the last few months, I have been getting more and more into makeup and I love trying new products! I am hoping that someday I will be comfortable enough to do some makeup videos, but until then, here are my October faves.
J.Crew Herringbone Quilted Puffer Vest – I have been wanting this vest for awhile and I finally got it! A quilted puffer vest is a fall staple everyone needs in their closet!
Express Lace-Up V-Neck Long Sleeve Trapeze Dress – I am loving this lace-up dress / shirt trend! When I saw this dress at Express and tried it on I knew I had to have it. It is flowy and flattering on my curvy body type. The best part is, Express is having 40% off everything right now!
ColourPop Baracuda Ultra Satin Lip -Ever since I discovered ColourPop last March, it has been my go-to matte lip product. Baracuda is a perfect fall color. It does look darker than it appears on the website, but it is still perfect. Plus, they are having free shipping until tomorrow, November 14 at 11:59 p.m. That’s a bargain!
ColourPop Lippie Primer – If you use ColourPop lip products, then you need to use the ColourPop Lippie Primer. It makes your lips so smooth and primes them perfectly before a matte lipstick. Some people have experienced dryness and flaky color from some ColourPop products, but I have found that this product really helps reduce that. It is only $5 so it is definitely worth a try!
Maybelline Master Fix Setting & Perfecting Loose Powder – Baking was a foreign concept to me until I saw YouTubers doing it in their makeup routines. I didn’t want to invest in an expensive translucent powder so I decided to give the Maybelline Master Fix Setting & Perfecting Loose Powder a try. Baking has helped my underage concealer last all day and brightens up my under eyes. I highly suggest everyone try it!
Morphe Brushes – I have been in the market for a good set of brushes for a while. Last month, Hautelook had a Morphe sale and I finally invested in the Beautiful & Bronze 12-Piece Set and the M439 – Deluxe Round Buffer Brush. I had great expectations from these brushes, especially because Jacklyn Hill endorses them! So far I am satisfied with my purchase and I highly suggest shopping on Hautelook for great deals on makeup brushes and other products.
OPI Infinite Shine Lacquer Collection – I first discovered the Infinite Shine Lacquer Collection last month when I got a pedicure. I liked it so much I decided to go to Ulta and pick up the primer base, Sick To Your Burgundies, and the gloss top coat (and I lucked out because it was buy two, get one free!). I have always liked OPI products and I love this system even more because it lasts forever! I can’t wait to pick up more colors.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – This sponge is just as good or better than the real beauty blender and it is way cheaper!
