Just two months to 2015 -let that sink in! Just two months! Where did the time go?
As we start with the dry and cool November, it's time to share my favorites from October. I did not get to play with makeup so much except for when I did the Halloween Looks! I was the Half Skull, The Thirsty Vampire and Stitched Up Insanity. After all the crazy Halloween Makeup I had to give my skin the much needed care and rest.
To try to keep it minimal, here's what I used the most and loved!
2. Nivea Body Lotion - Sensual Musk
The only time I use lotions for my body is in Autumn and Winter. I bought this back in July solely for its fragrance. I love love how it smells, I'm into musky fragrances. This not only smells good but kept my skin hydrated without feeling greasy -and that's all I want from a moisturizer, hydrating without being greasy. I have used it all through October and keeping it near throughout Autumn and Winter.
3. Amarante - One Last Time
I first came across this in a Kathleen Light's video and the music just stuck to my mind. There was something so soothing about it. When I finally found it on soundcloud, that's all I listened to. Amarante has such a beautiful variety of songs and there is some depth to each one of em -their lyrics and the music. This one in particular is my favorite!! I can't stop listening to it!! You must listen to it here and tell me if you liked it.
4. L'oreal Paris Hydra-Total 5 Cream
I use this religiously every night in Fall and Winter. In Summer, I use it on alternate days. I also like to use this under my foundation. This hydrates my skin so well without leaving it greasy. This gets rid of all the dry patches and leave my skin feeling soft, supple and hydrated. I'll do a full review on this for sure!
5. Kryolan Cake Eyeliner - Black
I used this a lot for my Halloween looks (see them here) and did all my winged eyeliners with it. I found it so easy to use. just a little water to make it creamy and it glides on so smoothly. I was able to create some really precise winged lines with this amazing product!
6. Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge
This has to be my favorite for every month because this is what I use mostly for my foundation and blending the concealers! It blends so flawlessly giving that airbrushed look to the skin! It definitely is a steal for its price and the closest possible dupe for Beauty Blender. In fact according to Kathleen Lights and Jaclyn Hill, it performs exactly like the Beauty Blender! It's a staple in my makeup kit!
I wanted to do dome Fall looks but after the Halloween makeup my skin just couldn't take more makeup so I'll definitely do a Fall makeup look this month. Let me know if you want to see any specific makeup look, I am not a makeup artist but will try my best (:
Let me know what were your favorites for the month of October? You know I love hearing from you guys <3
Until next time, Good Luck and Ciao!
