I've always preferred natural makeup, and usually I change up my lipstick for a fancy evening. While I do enjoy playing with makeup, I don't think that it's the end all be all for feeling beautiful. Everyone should feel as good without makeup as they do with it, which is a lot easier said than done, and I am no exception. Nevertheless, maybe this look will inspire you!
1. First I start fresh faced and fancy free. I've already washed my face and put on toner, moisturizer, and spot treatment.
2. Next I apply primer and foundation. The green e.l.f. primer helps tone down my acne scars and hyper-pigmentation, while the NYX helps with my oily t-zone. This e.l.f. foundation is the best one I have ever used! It's super cheap and has great coverage. I definitely recommend it.
3. I do my eye makeup with this Beach Goddess palette from Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale. It was definitely a good purchase because I've been using it for probably 2.5 years. It also includes blush, highlight, and contour! The picture on the right shows which products in the palette I use.
This is the final eye look -- I start with a light color, or gold, on the lid, the medium color from the bottom left of the palette in the crease, and the dark color from the top right of the palette to give an illusion of depth.
4. I finish with powder, contour, highlight, and blush, then I swipe on some mascara and lipstick!

I am a September baby, which may be the root of my love for fall. I love dark chocolate, popcorn, and I do actually like brussel sprouts. I'm the kind of person that listens to a Christmas song in September. (But only one. I don't want to ruin the ~magic~).
