Last week marked the first official day of fall, but its been feeling fall here for the past 2 weeks or so. It's my favorite season, and for me, the change in the air warrants other changes too. Those changes should be going to Target less, or eating out less because the summer patios no longer call out - but really, my Target habits haven't changed, probably just gotten worse. No one can blame me if at least, I think, I'm looking better.. right? After hearing a few little dirty secrets about the difference between higher-end drugstore brands [think loreal, revlon] vs. department store brands I wandered into the makeup section and picked up a few new things that have quickly become my absoute favorites for a fresh and dewy face this fall...
I'm obsessing over this Garnier BB cream
. It looks flawless, you can't feel it, and blends beautifully. A's across the board in my book. I stand by a couple MAC mainstays that I will always love - like this Mineralize skinfinish
The new L'Oreal Power Volume Collagen
mascara is magic my friends. My long eyelashes stay light, bright, and thick with this stuff. MAC paint pot in Painterly
. A must have. Period. Next up is the lipstick I've sold all my friends on this Revlon lipstick in "Sweet Tart"
the color is juicy but not barbie-style, and it goes on smoothly. My favorite eyeshadow is MAC "Satin Taupe" its got a little sheen to it, and compliments most skin tones beautifully.
