I actually didn't wear much makeup this month because I've just started school -I've been trying to sneak in every last minute of sleep that I can get. But there are a few products that I've been able to squeeze into my routine.
1. theBalm Shady Lady Vol. 2 Palette- This is one of my favorite palettes. I haven't had time to do any looks with multiple colors but I've been using Mischievous Marissa and Just This Once Jamie for all over the lid. (click here for swatches)CARGO Blush in Polynesia- I've been using nude, peach, or apricot blushes all summer and this has been a nice change. Polynesia is a warm rosy pink with golden shimmer -perfect for the indecisive weather we've been having. One week it's cold and foggy and then the next week it's sunny and nearly 100 degrees!
Pari Beauty Precious Glow- I've been using this since I got it! It adds a little extra shimmer to my eyeshadows and I also use it for my browbones and cheekbones from time to time.
Too Faced Shadow Insurance- I've been reaching for this instead of my UDPP because my skin has been extra dry lately. I like UDPP in terms of how much brighter it makes my eyeshadows but TFSI does a good job with that too and is more gentle when my eyelids are dry.
5. MAC 168 Large Angled Contour Brush- I've been using this nonstop since I got it too (and it's in dire need of another washing.) I wanted this for contouring and I love it for exactly that. It sheds a little (as you can probably see in the first pic) but I haven't owned a brush that's never shedded.Fresh Twlight Freshface Glow- I included this in another Monthly Favorites before but I love it! I can use it along my cheekbones, browbones, or entire face for a very subtle glow. I'm almost out so a full size will be needed soon.
Usually, my hair is either down, in a ponytail, or in a bun. So I tried to put a twist on the usual ponytail/bun -literally! I know you've all seen this before but I took pictures anyways. All I did was part my hair in a deep side part, twist the front hair/bangs, and tie it back. I've been doing this about 3 times a week.. I'm super boring when it comes to hair.
Agh! My forehead is so dry.
Just some songs that I've been putting on repeat -none of them are new or anything.
1. Glitter In The Air- Pink
2. Can't Let Go- Anthony Hamilton
3. I Care About You- Babyface Ft. K-Ci, JoJo, Kevon, Melvin
What I've been reading..
I have books that I have to read for class but in my spare time, I've been trying to finish the 4th Twilight book -Breaking Dawn. My auntie gave my dad a Kindle a few months back and he gave it to me! I've been loving it too -I take it with me pretty much everywhere.
Have a lovely Monday everyone! What were your September favorites?
