October Beauty Buys

This month I’m all about keeping it neutral. I like to ease into fall makeup with a dark lip here and there, and this shade — J’adore — from Marc Jacobs Beauty does the trick. I also love to keep the summer shimmer around for a little longer and have just discovered this creme highlighter from Becca. I have the ‘opal’ shade and love it’s warm, neutral hue for my skin tone. (It blends like butter.)
On the skincare front, I’ve been using this La Mer Perfecting Treatment moisturizer since May and can almost say I swear by it. (I feel like you have to use something for years to swear by it, but maybe that’s just me.) I use it right before I put my makeup on as a moisturizer and primer. It makes my skin like silk. (It’s only downside is it’s price tag, so the story goes with all things by La Mer. But well worth it if you’re looking for a great moisturizer.) And as I’m always looking for a new mask, this BC purifying charcoal mask does the absolute trick. It’s my favorite end of the week ritual.
My gadgets I’ve picked up? A lash comb (which my sweet husband thought was a mini stapler) to get my mascara as clump-free as possible and eyebrow scissors. I don’t trim my brows often, about once a month, but it’s nice to trim the crazies that pop up out of the blue. I don’t go crazy on the trim, just a few strays here or there and it always makes my brows look smooth.

    It’s kind of funny because I was looking at a bronzy jumbo pencil from nyx to really make my eyes pop. The rose gold bag is amazing as well, I’m on this rose gold madness at the moment, so I’m most likely going to buy something similar to yours (my makeup bag has been through a lot)

    Thanks for sharing!

      I will say this — the La Mer slope is a slippery one. That stuff really does work. I’m always a bit sad when I have to restock but it is worth it!

      And yes on Sephora’s lipsticks! Amazing quality!

    I got the Becca highlight in Opal as a sample and it’s gorgeous! I haven’t tried mixing it into my foundation yet, but I’m going to try that in the winter when my skin gets sallow and needs a pick me up. I sometimes do the same thing on Sundays! A charcoal mask in the morning (I use the Origins one) and then moisturize and then no make-up all day. My skin loves it.
