Let’s Make Up

Perusing all the great new styles and fashions for fall has me thinking how I never, ever seem to really change up my beauty routine…specifically the makeup I wear. Truth be told, any attempts at a cat-eye have me looking cockeyed, and anything more that a light pink gloss on my lips leaves me feeling garish and clown-like. However, at the risk of being stuck in a rut, or even worst…a time warp, I think I might want to tweak my look just a bit this fall…

As you can see, it’s not a major overhaul. Adding subtle shimmer to my eyes and some extra oomph in the eyelash department seem like just the thing for a more festive, evening look. And, because I just can’t seem to quit pretty sheer lip glosses, I thought I’d finally pick up one of these tubes that I’ve heard so many great things about. Have you made any changes to your makeup bag recently?

  1. I need to shake things up a bit in the makeup department too. I'm a play-it-safe kind of girl as well, but those eyelashes are speaking to me (aren't those the ones Alexa Hampton wears??)!

    I wear very little make up. No eyeshadows, neither eyeliner. I recently added coral lipstick and at the beginning I felt ridiculous but now I can't live without it. I want it to look natural and not like a clown so I only apply two touches of lipstick and then with my finger distribute it, that way my lips get a natural coral color, then I put gloss to hydrate them.
    I can't believe you have that atelier, how do you do it so that your kids don't take everything out of place?

    I love Nars products! I just bought their fast ride color for fall….it is a little daring…so a darker lip…but I think it will be fun for fall. I can easily spend money on so many things…but make-up is not one of them…not sure why.

  4. Right there with you. Since moving north 4 years ago, I barely wear any makeup. Which is not a bad thing, but I feel like I'm missing out on some fun! Please let me know how the eyelashes work out for you…the times I've tried have always been a disaster. I'd love some "how to" tips if you can figure them out!

  6. I've added some bright lipsticks to my makeup bag recently — the change was scary at first, but I don't know how I would ever go back! 🙂
