I Instagrammed this photo the other day and it seemed really popular! A lot of people asked me what products I used to make this look successful. I decided that this was probably going to be my staple makeup look! It is so perfect for the Fall. It’s warm and simple!

Let’s get started! Β I am one of those weird people who does their Face makeup before my eye-makeup! I put the products in the order that I use them! I start with Benefit’s “Big Easy”, which is their version of a BB cream! It is my absolute FAVORITE items ever. I have oily skin and this BB cream does wonders for my skin. It dries with a powder finish. I use the color Medium, but now that we are moving closer to winter, I will be going down a shade to Light/Medium.

I do still use a powder after it though! I use Benefit’s “Hello Flawless” in the color Honey! It literally matches my skin tone perfectly!

Next, I continue to MAC’s paint pot, which is an eyeshadow primer. I use it in the color Painterly! One of the reasons that I love this primer so much is because I use this product for two things. In addition to using it as an eyeshadow primer, I use it as a concealer!

I then move on to contour my face! I use Benefit’s “Hoola” bronzer and The Balm’s highlighter “MaryLou”!

Who doesn’t love a cat-eye? I sure do love them! I do one probably 4 days out of the week! I love Stila’s liquid eyeliner and then I use a few coats of Revlon’s “Lash Express” mascara! If you need length, then this is the mascara for you! I have the volume… but I always need as much help as I can get with mascara!

And finally, I complete this look with Mary Kay’s “Mystic Plum” lipstick! HOLY CANNOLI, this is my favorite lipstick in the world. It completes almost every fall outfit that I wear!

I hope you all enjoyed this Fall Makeup look!

Fun Finds at Nordstrom Today!

I found a GREAT find at Nordy’s today! It’s the bag that you see pictured! I am extremely excited to use it for school! I really wanted to get a backpack for school this year because I was tired of lugging around a bag when I am gone all day for classes… But when I laid my eyes on this bag, I lost the idea of carrying around a backpack! Haha! The bag is Nordy’s brand and was as you can see, $88 but, I scored it for $44. The bag is made out of a material similar to burlap, so it’s definitely going to last me a long time.

I am happy it will last me a long time because last year the bag I was using for most of the year broke on me in March. I was so sad because it was my favorite Longchamp. I am sure it is my fault the bag broke though, I basically carry my entire life with me ALL day. When I leave in the morning for classes, (which, this year I have a 7:45 am class, I already am so sad about that!) I am gone until I finish my last class and do everything else that I need to do that day. Which means I probably won’t be home until 5 pm.

I also bought a new MAC products! YAY! I bought a new eyebrow pencil, which matches PERFECTLY! It is in the color Lingering. I also bought a new Paint Pot, which is an eyeshadow primer. It is the only eyeshadow primer that I LOVE! I think it has to do with the thickness of the primer. I am not a fan of the ones that come in tubes, they become too oily for me.

These were my lovely finds at Nordstrom today! I hope you enjoy!
