September Favorites

September Beauty Favorites

September was a month that got me more excited about makeup. I love Autumn makeup trends and I wore my favorite eyeshadow look almost every day. I love a good deep rusty color on the lids and I have found my favorite palette of all time for that: Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita eyeshadow quad. OMG it's the best. I cannot get enough. To complete my eye makeup, I have also completely ditched the liquid eyeliner and I've only been using pencils smudged near my lash line. I love using the Nicka K Angled Shadow Brush to smudge the line because it looks much softer and smokier. And this is no surprise, my favorite mascara of the moment is the Fairy Drops Volume Burst mascara. Simply does an amazing job volumizing, lengthening and just makes my lashes look super full.

On my nails I've been going through a nude phase and this was actually the color I wore on my wedding day: Essie Urban Jungle. It's such a pretty opaque pastel nude that looks really chic and elegant. It's a great neutral color and it looks great on your fingers and toes!

For base I have pretty much only worn the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation for the past two months. It's nice and light for day and so affordable! I literally just did a review so you can read about why I like it here. And finally a product I have been using for over a month now has been the Mederma Scar Cream + SPF 30. I am still working on any major results but I do think this stuff works in making your scars lighter and less visible over time. I'm hoping to help reduce the appearance of old acne scars on my face and for that it says it's takes 3-6 months but I am hopeful and I use this morning and night before I apply foundation. I got the SPF 30 version to protect my scars further from any sun damage but I might get a night time one as well. 

Those are my favorites this month!
