Halloween is coming, which means October is almost over (which means...basically it's Christmas!!!) This month's beauty favorites are all new products that I haven't able to put down - with the colder months coming I need all the help I can get to keep that healthy glow.
What are some of your favorites this month?
I've always been a little hesitant with liquid lipsticks that are "long wearing" because they usually don't last but decided to give Kat Von D's a try and holy-moly-batman I'm obsessed with the formula and color. I'm wearing the shade "lovesick," which is the perfect nude-y mauve color for Fall. I got this over a month ago and it's been my go to ever since I tried it for the first time. It goes on like a gloss but dries a matte shade and it actually lasts. I usually only have to touch it up once after eating or drinking. Before applying any lipsticks I always exfoliate and moisturize my lips so that the color doesn't settle into links or clump up.
I know I've already mentioned some of my favorite masks but it's time to add this one to the mix. The winter months (and pretty much year-round in SF!) really dries out my skin so I started using this hydrating mask by Skin Inc and it makes all the difference. It's gel based so you can leave it on over night, which is what I do, or leave it on for 30+ minutes. It leaves your face feeling super hydrated and dewy. It's also great on those long overnight flights because it won't leave your skin dry up in the air. Seriously, though ever since I've been using the hydrating mask my friends have commented how dewy and glowing my face looks. Boom!
Burberry is known for their natural glowing skin (especially down the runway), so when I got the sample from Sephora I was super excited. This illuminator is super light and sheer so you can put it on your face (duh!), body and décolletage. I add a drop or two on the back of my hand then mix with a pump of my foundation and apply. I love the natural glow and dewy-ness it gives my skin. I'm officially out of my sample and will be purchasing.
This isn't anything new per se, but it's new to me. So many people told me to try the Brow Wiz and I'm so happy I did. I was very loyal to my Benefit but haven't looked back since I started using this one. The Brow Wiz makes my eyebrows look the most full and shaped without looking drawn on.
