Happy Monday!

Happy Monday morning everyone!

Grab a nice hot (or cold) cup of coffee/tea/beverage of your choice, eat your favorite healthy breakfast, get dressed in something that makes you feel confident, comfortable, and ready to tackle the day, and have a fantastic Monday. The first day of the school/work week can be a drag sometimes, but make today a good one!

Sending you all positive vibes!

Wishing you the best

Classic & Simple Autumn Makeup | Taupe Eyes & Berry Lips

In the fall I am all about the taupe and berry tones in terms of makeup. I find that they compliment each other really well and aren't overwhelming on my fair skin.

Now there are plenty of days where I don't wear makeup because:
1) I'm in college so lazy days happen
2) If I'm going to the gym in the morning, makeup is NOT necessary
3) I really hate taking off makeup at night...
4) It's nice to give your skin a breather!

BUT this is my go-to "fancier" makeup look during the fall (and probably seasons to come).
For a more everyday look, apply the lipstick with your finger and it gives a subtle berry tint (which is what I'll normally do for daytime wear).

Note: the lipstick photographs on the red side, but it's more berry/vampy in person.

E Y E S :
MAC Satin Taupe (aka my favorite eyeshadow of all time)
Urban Decay Hustle (in the Naked Palette)
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Black
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black

L I P S :
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in 124 Bordeaux

I think this would be a great look for the upcoming holiday season!

Wishing you the best
