Fall: Makeup

Fall Makeup

Fall makeup is ready to help you change your look. When I was brainstorming and thinking of Fall makeup, I was looking at photos on and off the runways and I kept thinking back to the grunge era of the 90's with Teen Spirit and Nirvana running through my head. Darker pouts, smoked out eyes with smudged liner, sporadic but fuller lashes (not strips) and brighter foundation that is definitely matte with a super defined brow. Phew! Thats a lot compared to Summer makeup and I am so excited to share all of these items above. 

Eyes// smoke them out, start with the liner and smudge it with a brush or Qtip, then run a bit of dark shadow directly over the liner, the mid tone blended right above that into the lower portion of your crease and the lighter color to highlight. Remember to smudge a little of the two darker shadows under your eye as well and I love lining my water lines on both top and bottom. 

Brows// fill em in ladies. Bigger, bolder brows are it! NYX makes a fab product for brows that come in different shades according to your hair color.

Face// Remember to lighten up your foundation as the season changes and your tan fades. I am loving the Maybelline Brightener to enhance my under eye area followed with MACs translucent powder to achieve that more matte look without appearing caked on!

Lashes// sporadic falsies are in. You can still wear an entire strip but try a couple individuals on the outer edge, one in the middle and one a little more spaced to wards the inner corner. If lashes aren't your bag then try my new fave mascara by Loreal. It looks very similar to falsies and is a whole lot easier to use. 

Lips// OK this is my favorite! We have all see the super gorg Kylie Jenner on IG and all her lippy photos right?! One of her famous combos is MACs Whirl liner and Faux Lipstick. However Whirl is sold out everywhere so I went to CVS and bought a high school fave from Wet 'n Wild #666 and I swear it is SO similar for $2. Lol Remember that with darker lips you'll need to exfoliate (I love sugar) and hydrate (coconut oil) at night so your lips look flawless for daytime. Put a little foundation on your lips and then line your entire lip area and fill them in. This will keep your lipstick from bleeding and help it last longer. 

If you try any of these Fall makeup ideas please take a pic and tag me on Instagram @parlorgirl 
I would love to see!!
Happy Friday...

Fall: Hair, Skin & Nails

Caviar | Its a 10 | Aussie | Coconut Oil
Hair// Fall for hair means the end of Summer which is typically very hard and drying on our lovely locks. We have all spent a number of days enjoying the sun, pools and other outdoor water activities that wreak havoc on our ends, not to mention trims are usually spaced out a little longer as everyone wants those long beachy do's during the Summer. When Fall approaches I always love to give my clients these simple steps of advice. Get a healthy trim to rid your ends of all the dry damage, use an overnight leave-in like the Caviar or Coconut Oil and Deep Condition once a week for 4-straight weeks! That should help soften your locks right back into gorgeous manageable hair. 

Bodywash | Sponge | Lotion
Skin// Fall skin is very similar to Fall hair. Wrapping up Summer from spending many days outside, exposed to sun can mean a bit more dryness and less supple skin. Or, if you were pregnant all Summer like me, I was just plain dry! I think I found a wonderful cocktail that has made my skin look, feel and smell amazing over the last couple weeks. First, I bought this loofah at target (two-toned) as they were out of my regular one. I put the body wash on it and went to town scrubbing and thought I was in pain as all of my skin was red. It was almost uncomfortable the first two times but then by my third shower I thought 'I need to go back and buy a dozen of these sponges to have on hand'. I was sold. I had been searching for a more moisturizing lotion with not a lot of scent as I have been really sensitive to smells and came out with this Jergens one. Normally, I love to wear Coconut Oil all Summer on my skin but I think because I am pregnant and running warmer than normal, I felt greasy all the time and did not like that. So only the belly got lubed in Coconut Oil and the rest of me got the lotion. By the third night of this skin combo, I noticed my skin glowing in bed. My skin is so soft and hydrated, I highly recommend all three of these products to nourish your skin back from Summer dryness. Also, on a side note, when you do want to wear perfume, I have not had these compete with my perfumes. The lotion scent is faint enough that I have not experienced it conflicting with any of my personal perfumes. 

Tan | Military | Brown | Burgundy
Nails// Fall fingers have me giddy! Maybe it is the nail polish hoarder in me or maybe just the fact that I looooove change. Whatever it is here are four of my Fall faves for polish so far. You can never go wrong with a tan/nude, the military/camo green is subtle and I just can't wait to get my fingers on it or it on my fingers ;], I always love a good brown for Fall and the Bahama-Mama burgundy I literally have on my toes and fingers right now! Love!!
