Summer is my favorite season but when it comes to fashion and makeup Fall is where it's at! The most trendy and styled clothing paired with makeup looks I can actually where in public and feel good about. Fall / Winter 2014 is probably my favorite so far with metallics, illuminated skin tones, better bold lips and faint eyeshadow eyes leading the way. Which is your favorite look?
PIXI by Petra Mesmerizing Mineral Palette - Emerald Gold www.pixibeauty.com jane iredale Signature Gilded Collection 24-Karat Gold Dust Tip: Mix 24k with your favorite moisturizer or liquid foundation to appear instantly refreshed. For a foiled eye makeup look, spritz your brush, and apply by pressing onto the eyelid. www.janeiredale.com
Dull skin is not in this winter and the illuminated look carries over from summer into the colder seasons! I am grateful this is staying around because I love the look of illumination on certain areas of my face to make me look more awake, alive and glowing! It would be hard for me to give this up in style or not anyway :)
The Rimmel London 3D lip glosses are INCREDIBLE!!! Don't mistaken these for ordinary glosses...somehow they did create them to be 3D and the dimensions looks FAB on the lips! It's like comparing a glass window with stained glass one...no comparison, right? I wore the Popcorn for Two color for a wedding I was in over the summer...flawless! jane iredale
Fall 2014 20th Anniversary City Nights Makeup Collection - Celebrate Limited Edition Eye Shadow Trio Palette - Purple and Green Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner in Green and Purple - PureMoist Lipstick in Katerina - PureGloss Lip Gloss in Kir Royale
Jane commented on this collection and what the 20th anniversary means to her:
“When I started the company I had one product, Amazing Base, and with it launched the whole new category of mineral makeup. We are celebrating this milestone with new innovations and will continue to deliver personal, uplifting beauty that is as good for the skin as it is beautiful to wear. I know the next 20 years will be even more incredible than the last!” – Jane Iredale
This is one of my top fave looks! The minimal / sheer eyeshadow with no eyeliner is SO easy to create (especially when waking up late!) and it actually looks great while also highlighting eyes in a more natural way that really does make them pop! Who can resist that gorgeous Chantecaille Save the Bees palette?? Not only are the colors fabulous, but they give 5% of proceeds from the Save the Bees Palette to The Xerces Society to help protect bees and our environment!
The bold lip just adds to the look, finishing it off and completing it. It's elegant edgy and I'm crazy about it! I adore the MUA Lip Stain! The colors are beautiful and bold and hydrating with serious staying stain power! Palladio High Intensity Herbal Lip Balm - Blooming Berry
The COVERGIRL Outlast All Day Lip Color has perfect pigment with serious staying power...no dry, flaky lips either! In fact to test their claim of 24 hour power I left it on with out washing it off and when I woke up it did in fact stand up to the 24 hours and beyond! I hate touchups, so with this all you had to do to freshen up was add the moisturizing top coat that is basically like applying chapstick and your are good to go! Also, my new go-to eye makeup shadow look is here again only in true shimmery metallic tones!

* Wow...my new go-to mascara...coats lashes individually without clumping them together....lashes look so perfect you might be asked if they are real or not! LOVE IT!
* Tip: These are out for Halloween only, so buy them up while they last! These are the most natural lashes I have seen and used, I actually used the Devil lashes in a wedding I was in over the summer :)
Another of top fave looks! I've been rocking this out already and I love how sexy and simple it is to create! I put a nude or white tone shadow on my top lid with shades from the Too Faced: Boudoir Eyes. Then I take the Mary Kay black eyeliner and draw back and forth across the water line until it creates a thick line under my lash line. I then trace the line into the inner corner and a bit on the top inner corner of my lid. Then extend the line out away from the outter corner to create the cat eye. To lock in the look I will use the Mary Kay Gel Liner for a "wet" look or I will take the French Tickler color in the Boudoir Eyes palette and cover the eyeliner line, which also creates a smokey look. Mary Kay has a great makeup setting spray I use after this is all applied. Palladio Herbal Matte Blush - Berry Pink www.palladiobeauty.com Mary Kay Eyeliner - Black

Incredible foundation! The magic is truly all about the special brush design! I believe that foundation is best applied with your fingers and the heat of your hands, especially since when I use brushes the foundation seems to absorb more in the brush than on my skin...but that never happened with this amazing bareSkin foundation brush! Flawless! The makeup applied fast and easy with the brush and the foundation covered imperfections while leaving a light glow to my face. I LOVE this product!!!
