Hey beauty lovers!
I’m back from my mini vacation from blogging. So sorry it took so long! I’ve finally settled into my new school and work schedule. Plus Halloween and my Fiancé’s birthday week is over. It’s already the first day of November and I just can’t believe it. Time is truly flying by this year.
I’ve been very into gel eyeliner this month. It’s a simple way to define your eyes and to me is less stress then a pencil. It does take some practice but nothing too stressful. I love L’Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner 24 hour in 171 Blackest Black. The texture is smooth and does not dry out.
To apply the gel liner I use my Sonia Kashuk angled eyeliner brush. This brush is the perfect size to get deep in the lash line and great to create the perfect cat wing. The bristles are so soft. Mine is from Sonia Kashuk anniversary brush set.
The best drugstore mascara I found is Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Express in Blackest black. The handle is flexible so you can reach all out your lashes. The brush on the other hand is super fat and has short compact bristles. This mascara is good for volume and lengthening.
Cream eyeshadow is my go to lately. Maybelline Tattoo cream eyeshadow 24 hour is Simple to use but it looks like you put a lot of effort into your look. I love the shade 25 Bad to the Bronze. It’s a brownish taupe color and has all day staying power. Just warm the product up on your finger and tap it on to your lid.
Looking for a concealer brush that blends like a dream? Check out Sonia Kashuk’s brush line. Also from her anniversary kit is my flat tapered concealer brush. It gets into all the tiny spaces to blend your concealer.
Nude lipstick goes with everything but for a funky twist this month I tried Lust for Blush 665 by Maybelline Matte lipstick. I’m sure by now you have heard of the new collection Maybelline launched last month of 10 matte shade of lipsticks. I picked up 8, a post to come on them soon. The color of Lust for Blush is a light pinkish purple shade closer to nude but has a kick to it.
Finally my last favorite of the month is Urban Decay All Nighter setting Spray. It helps keep your makeup on all day and it’s a simple finishing step. I also use it to prep my skin for foundation. The smell isn’t the greatest but once it’s dry you can’t notice it.
I’m going to throw in some pictures of my Halloween makeup and the makeup I did for my friend she pwent as Cleopatra and I did her roommate Nicole eyeshadow. What’s your favorite for the month?
