Autumnal Reds

Friday, September 23, 2016

I can't get too excited about autumn in Charleston when the temperature is still 80 around here. I'll just be festive on the inside and watch Hocus Pocus on repeat. Thankfully autumn makeup is more doable than me stepping out in a sweater and boots without dying of heatstroke. This fall, red is having its moment in makeup collections everywhere. At first, I was a little cautious about red eyeshadow most of all since I've never seen it on anyone before, but honestly Chanel has done it best with their new eyeshadow quad for fall. They have other pieces featuring beautiful shades of red but these eyeshadows spoke to me the most. Enough for me to finally break down and add this gem to my collection.

Nars Rigel

Monday, September 12, 2016

Besides coffee and my dogs, I really only care about one other thing and it's eyeshadow. Eyeshadow definitely makes up the biggest chunk of my collection and there's only room to grow. Some of my favorite eyeshadows come from Nars. But these aren't just any ordinary eyeshadows, no, they're even better. They're the Dual Intensity shadows that can be worn wet or dry depending on how I'm feeling that day. One top of the versatility, they're super shimmery and leave a metal-like look on the lids. Did I need to buy another one? Probably not. Did I? You bet. 

Liquid Lipsticks

Friday, September 9, 2016


There must be something in the water around here because suddenly I have a thing for lipstick. If anyone knows me really well, they'll know that I never wear color on my lips. It just wasn't my thing for so long but I always lusted after my friends who were able to pull it off and wear it with ease. Like, props to my friends, I love you guys and your lipsticks.
