As we are now a few weeks into October, I'm sure you have been hearing a lot about Breast Cancer Awareness and seeing a lot of pink! There are many ways to show your support for BCA even when it comes to your beauty products. Thanks to Certified Fabulous, I now know that many beauty brands release special edition products in support of BCA. So if you're going to purchase any beauty products this month, I recommend checking to see if that brand has any special edition BCA products. 


 Laqa & Co. Lil' Lip Duo

When you purchase this Lil' Lip Duo this month, Laqa & Co. will donate 20% of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This set features two little lip crayons in lighter shades of pink (Wolfman & Fairyblood) and comes in a beautifully designed box. The lip crayons themselves are the perfect size to throw into a little clutch or keep at your desk for lipstick emergencies. I also can't bring my self to throw away the box yet - I love the print design! This is a great set to buy as a gift this month - save it for the holidays or give it to someone you know who has fought with Breast Cancer themselves or with a loved one. It may be a small gesture to show your support, but it will also contribute to donations to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

  • mary kay semi matte lipstick pink moonstone certified fabulous cate mcnabb lipstick guava burts bees lip crayonI love, love, love trying new lipstick. I’m particular about my lipstick, but I still try different kinds, always searching for the next best thing. A good price point always helps. So when I had three to try this month, I was quite excited. Each one is very different in its own right, so they make great comparisons.

    Mary-Kay Semi-Matte Lipstick - Pink Moonstone

    I like matte lipsticks, but some tend to be a bit drying. So when I saw this semi-matte in pink rose, I was intrigued. Andddd I love it! It goes on smoothly with consistent & rich color. It is a tad bit creamier than a matte lipstick, but does not appear glossy or shiny (has a slight sheen due the creamy finish). This is one of my new favorites! It’s a nice shade for fall and is the perfect finish for many outfits!

    Cate Mcnabb Lipstick in Guava

    This matte lipstick is also a nice rich, warm tone for fall and a great day shade: wear to work, cocktails and even weekend adventures. With a true matte lipstick, I prefer to exfoliate my lips before. I simply use a little sugar and olive oil and wait a few minutes before applying the lipstick. This leaves a moisturized, even surface so the matte looks smooth and polished

    Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon Sedona Sands


    This lip crayon provides lightweight moisture and creamy matte color for every day. This is a great option to keep in your purse when your lips need a little pick-me-up. The formula is infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil leaving your lips soft and smooth. The Sedona Sands provides just that touch of color for a pretty, light pink.

If you're like me, you're enjoying adding bolder makeup items to your routine this fall. I love a good lipstick and when fall comes around I want to buy all the matte and luxious vibrant, sultry, rich colors out there! But to make sure my new makeup choices are at their best, I use a few base items on a regular basis. 

Mally perfect prep poreless primer glowMally Perfect Prep Poreless Primer Glow

Start with a flawless canvas with Mally's Perfect Pret Poreless Primer Glow. This primer is lightweight, making it a great base, but it also minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pores so that your makeup will go on smoothly and keeps a fresh appearance all day. This primer also helps hydrate your skin and seal in that moisture. With the cooler fall days, its great to have another product that will help keep your skin hydrated and looking fresh! Using primer truly makes a huge difference in the application and staying power of your makeup. Whether I'm using a tinted moisturizer or a powder foundation, I always have better results and smoother skin when I use a primer first. And this primer is no exception! It creates a smooth, silky base without feeling greasy or overdone. C O Bigelow speamint lip shine

C.O. Bigelow Spearmint Supreme 2x Lip Shine No. 506

Breath freshener and lip moisturizer in one. Not only will your lips look and feel fabulous with this rich lip shine, you'll also be rewarded with breath fresheners! This is a great lip balm to keep in your bag. If you forget lipstick and need a little pick me up, this is a great go-to. Keep this nearby and use regularly to keep your lips well moisturized and fresh so that any lipstick colors you choose to apply this fall go on smoothly and look their best!

I love fall! And fall style. But the early weeks of fall require different clothing layers of those later, chillier weeks. That's one reason why I love fall fashion! It changes and progresses and the weeks and weather change, so I put together a few outfits that will take you from the beginning of fall all the way to those crisp fall days!

fall florals

This first outfit is for those early September days, where the morning has a little bit of chill to it, but when the sun is out in the afternoon it will take you back to summertime dreaming. So for those days I like to pair a bright, still summery, but structured dress with cute light booties & a comfy/stylish cardigan. Add a bright purse for an extra color pop to the ensemble! Changing from sandals to booties instantly shifts your ensemble from summer to fall & with a cardigan you'll stay cozy and stylish!

As you change your makeup style this fall, there are a few items that you'll want to keep consistent and keep on hand throughout the season.

WaxeleneIt's always important to keep your lips moisturized, no matter what season it is. But as you start to wear bolder, darker, perhaps matte lipstick, you'll want a good lip balm to ensure a smooth lip surface! I suggest applying a thicker lip balm at night before bed so that your lips are smooth, moisturized, and lipstick ready come morning! Try Waxelene - the petroleum jelly alternative. Made from Organic Soy Oil, Beeswax, Organic Rosemary Oil, and Natural Vitamin E (from soybeans), Waxelene is a rich lip balm without petroleum or artificial ingredients. You can also apply this to your hands or any dry spots on your skin. It's thick texture makes this the perfect night treatment and with natural ingredients, you can feel good about using this over and over again. If you're a devoted user of petroleum jelly, I recommend giving this natural alternative a try, you won't be disappointed!

Skindinavia Makeup PrimerIf you're like me, you'll start wearing more makeup come the fall season. I like to keep my makeup light during the summer months, but come fall I love to play with more eyeliner, lipsticks, blush and makeup in general! So to ensure my makeup stays on and looking fresh, I start with Skindinavia Makeup Primer. This makeup spray primer is silicone free and creates a light, breathable barrier between your skin and makeup. Makeup will go on smoother and last longer with this primer used before makeup application. You can easily mist this primer over your skin, or brush it on. It also helps to prevent redness, uneven skin tone and large pores. Another way to help your skin before applying makeup, and to keep your makeup looking flawless all day and/or night long!

Last but not least, nail polish. Whether you like a more subtle touch to your outfit, or you all about the bold nail colors, its always good to keep a couple neutrals on hand for the fall season. Nude goes with so many styles and is a great fall color. Right now I have a couple Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquers that work great for the fall. C&E Almond for a darker, beige nail color and C&E Peaches for a lighter but still neutral/pink color. With two coats, this nail polish leaves an even and consistent finish. The brush is also thicker and sturdy, making it easy to apply the nail polish. I am not a fan of those thin and flimsy brushes! So whether I'm feel like using a brighter neutral, or a more subdued nude, I'm all set with C&E for this fall!

If you're looking for a few essential makeup products to finish the summer with a fresh look and take with you into the fall, L'Oreal has just the items for a simple and beautiful look: Magic Skin Anti-Redness BB Cream, Miss Manga Mascara, and the Glossy Balm.

Loreal magic skin beautifier bb cream

 

During the summer months, and yes it still is summer (August is not over yet!), I don't typically don't wear foundation as it feels too heavy on my skin. Instead, I use either a tinted moisturizer or a BB/CC Cream - these are great for light coverage and a fresh-faced look. L'Oreal offers a few BB Creams, one of which is the Magic Skin Beautifier Anti-Redness BB Cream. So how does it work? This BB Cream includes "Beautifying Beads" that are encapsulated with color-transforming pigments that counteract redness. It starts out green and as you apply (or even rub in your hand), it transforms to a universal skin tone shade that reduces the look of redness, which is pretty neat to watch! On top of the anti-redness benefits, this BB also works to even skin tone and hydrate for a smooth, bare finish. Just for fair warning, although it is pretty cool to see this BB transform to a universal shade, I would be tentative to use it if you have fair skin. My skin is quite fair and the shade was a little too dark for my preference. Other than that, this BB cream is lightweight and perfect for warmer weather.

Loccitane rose perfumeCelebrate the flower of Queens with Roses et Reines Eau de Toilette. I like a fragrance with a story and this one really enhances the perfume. This fragrance is inspired by the four daughters of the Count of Forcalquier, all of who cherished roses (L’Occtaine). As the flowers were said to have made them queens, this fragrance includes their favorite roses – the Grasse rose, Bulgarian rose, Moroccan rose, and the Turkish rose (L’Occitante).

I love the smell of Roses and this eau de toilette has just the right amount without it being too overpowering. There’s a richness to the fragrance, but maintains light, floral, and fruity notes. This fragrance will be my go-to as we head into the end of summer and beginning of fall. It doesn’t have a musky or spicy scent, so it’s perfect for summer evenings, and it’s not too sweet that it can carry well into the fall. Although I love deep and intriguing fragrances, I’ve always wanted one that just smells like roses: something simple, elegant, and wearable. Thankfully I have found Roses et Reines and it now has a permanent front row spot on my bureau!

If you want to enhance the intensity and longevity of Roses et Raines, layer with Roses et Reines Beautifying Body Milk. If you just want to experience a touch of the fragrance throughout the day, Roses et Reines Hand & Nail Cream is perfect to carry in your purse.Shaveworks Pearl Souffle shave cream

How else can you feel like a queen other than using Roses et Reines? Well I think smooth skin is a good way to start. Upgrade your ordinary shave cream to Shaveworks Pearl Souffle Luxurious Shave Cream. Not only will this shave cream ensure a smooth shave, it also exfoliates, moisturizes, and soothes your skin. This shave cream includes capislow to minimize the appearance of hair growth, phytic and glycolic acid to exfoliate and reduce ingrown hairs, and mediacalm complex for moisturizing benefits. Herbal and botanical extracts also help heal and soothe your skin. After using this shave cream, I’m left with smooth, moisturized skin, and a longer lasting shave. I tend to get razor irritation and this is a great cream to reduce that irritation and redness. I now use this cream every time I shave!

There are many luxurious products that can make you feel, even just a little bit, like a queen, but these two have now established themselves as staples in my beauty routine!
