summer TO FALL MAKEUP
*** THE WINNERS HAVE BEEN CHOSEN. SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE POST TO SEE!
Summer’s almost over and we’re slowly transitioning into autumn. (Though in southern California it still feels like we’re right in the thick of summertime!) With September upon us, it’s just a matter of time before the holidays sneak up on us, so I’m jumping into fall makeup right now!
Since we are still enjoying warm weather, I figured I’d do a summer/fall hybrid look. I headed to Kohl’s and picked up a few more items to make this look happen: I used the Cargo Summer in the City eyeshadow palette (which I showed you guys in my makeup haul and so many of you loved!) to add a golden bronze shimmery look to my eyes, a little bit of the Mr. Write Now eyeliner pencil by theBalm to add some definition, the LORAC PRO Fiber Mascara, and the Eylure false lashes in 080 for a little extra volume in my lashes. For my skin, I used the Time Balm Foundation by theBalm for the first time; it gave me excellent coverage and kept my dry skin hydrated. I also tried, for the first time, the Cargo HD Picture Perfect concealer in 3W and the LORAC PRO Contour Palette. To finish off the look and add an autumn touch, I used the LORAC Alter Ego lipstick in Secret Agent: The matte finish combined with the dark mauve/brown tone makes this the perfect color for fall!

Best of luck to all!!
Contest will end on September 17, 11:59a PST and winners will be announced September 18. (Be sure to leave a valid email address in the email field so I can get in touch with you if you win!)
Congratulations to the beauties below who won the giveaway for a Kohl’s gift card! As I mentioned, the winners were chosen via a plugin called “And The Winner Is…” which randomly generates however many winners you tell it to from all the comments. I so wish I could give it to each and every one of you! That’s why I make the random generator do it so I don’t have to pick. 🙂 Congrats, ladies!! I will be contacting you shortly to find out where the gift cards should be sent.
