I’ll skip the part about WHATHOWWHY it’s already October, but seriously, it’s the most fun time for makeup right? I traveled a bit this month and my go-to’s were: those rms coconut oil face wipes I mentioned last month, the kenra blow dry spray along with the it’s a 10 spray, and I tried the moroccan oil shampoo and conditioner in travel sizes. Not sure if I’m freaking over it yet, but I’ll let you know!

To sound like a broken record, I just flip over the shades of fall when it comes to makeup. Since I have green eyes, I’ve always gravitated towards purples and berry and burgundy shades since I’m sure that 15 years ago I read in Seventeen magazine that those are the colors I should wear. And I just love them! While I didn’t break much of them out in September because it was still totally summer, they will be in full force come this week.

So! Let’s get to the faves. 

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Body Oil. I’m usually not a huge body oil person (though I love it for my face), but tried this and am hooked. So is Eddie. I have NEVER come across an oil that so instantly absorbs into the skin, leaving no greasiness at all. I have some mild eczema patches and this cleared them up in about two (yes TWO!) days. For more dry areas, I’m putting this on first and then using lotion over top because this is more of a dry oil. I also love that this has a pump. Only downside is that it smells sort of weird, but it does not linger.

Formula X Nail Polish in Pacific Haze and Taken by Storm. These are theeee perfect fall and winter shades. Also, since formula x tends to be my favorite nail polish brand, I can’t say enough about how perfect the formula is.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I’ve talked about this for a few years now and it saves my face, especially when traveling. I still use the Sunday Riley Tidal cream morning and night, but I often use this as well and I only take this when I travel somewhere. This is the best thing ever for my dry skin.

Hourglass Vanish Foundation Stick. Okay, so we all know that I am soooo not a foundation person. I’ve gone through more Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue than I can count. I wanted to try a stick foundation for just a little bit more coverage in places and using this beauty blender, I completely fell in love with this. It is SO smooth.I love that I don’t need to cover my entire face with it and it doesn’t look cakey at all. It actually looks BETTER as the day goes on.

And! I love it best with a beauty blender. It’s been ages since I mentioned mine, and I rarely use it with tinted moisturizer but I ALWAYS use it with any sort of foundation. I don’t know how I’d live without it!

Too Faced Born This Way Concealer. So I’ve been using this for about two months now, but only when I’m wearing a foundation or something on my skin with more coverage. I’m loving it. It doesn’t crease at all and covers up my dark circles. I wouldn’t say it’s moisturizing, but it’s not as dry as the MAC prolongwear concealer which is what I’ve used for year when I want more coverage. I still use the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind daily, but this is great for when I’m wearing more makeup.

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick. I still freaking LOVE these lipsticks! This is Liv it Up and Carina’s Love. I want to get a berry shade now that it’s October and today, I’m breaking out MAC Rebel, my favorite ever fall lipstick.

Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamom. This is a repeat mention but I’ve been wearing it this month (even layered with the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon) and I’ll never get over how delicious this smells. It’s a different scent for me too since it’s slightly floral, but not so much that I’m sneezing my face off. I love how “warm” the cardamom smells. This was the perfect scent for September while it was still too hot to break out super warm perfumes.

That’s it for me! I’m looking forward to a few of the holiday sets but don’t think I’m going to do any eye palettes this year. I’m probably going to wait to buy anything from Sephora until next month – we are so close to the VIB sale! Though I do realllllly want to try the Nars Velvet Lip Glide. What are you loving now that it’s fall?! And what is you favorite lip color for October?!
