I’m so glad that October is over because it only means that Christmas is getting nearer and nearer! I love Christmas and I couldn’t wait to attend Christmas parties, exchange gifts with friends and binge eat on a delicious holiday feast!
But before all those merry-making activities, let me share with you my October beauty favorites! My October favorites is well categorized, if I must say so myself (gives self a pat on the back). I have makeup favorites for the face, the eyes and the lips. And, I threw in some skincare bits as well!
I’ve been wearing foundations a lot recently and my go-to foundation has been the Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin in the shade 240 Medium Beige. I adore this foundation because it blends easily and it sits well on my oily face. I combine this foundation with the Eye Need A Miracle Corrector in the shade Salmon from Happy Skin Cosmetics.This corrector has been an instant favorite of mine ever since Happy Skin launched their new products at the beginning of October! I find that the color of this corrector is great for concealing darkness around the eye area. I use it on some dark spots on my face as well and it conceals wonderfully!
I can’t seem to let go of the Get Cheeky With Me Blush in the shade First Kiss from Happy Skin Cosmetics! This product has already been featured in my September Favorites but I’m still in love with it! I’ve also been loving the E.L.F. Small Stipple Brush. This brush is awesome for cream and powder brushes because its bristles aren’t too dense that they pick up the right amount of product for a natural flush on the cheeks.
I like a quick and easy eye look and my three favorite eye products from the month of October epitomize quick and easy! For eyeshadow, I apply the Too Cool For School Dino Platz Shadow on Flatiron in the shade Bronze all over my lids. This product was also featured on my September Favorites. After applying the cream eyeshadow (which sets quickly btw), I line my upper and lower lash lines with the Eye Am Here To Stay 24 Hour Gel Pencil Eyeliner from Happy Skin Cosmetics. This eyeliner is superb because it stays on all day and is nicely pigmented! To finish the eye look, I apply multiple coats (you can tell I like big, fluttery lashes) of The Cheek Room Curl and Volume Mascara. I got this mascara from the Memebox Special #28 All About Eyes box. This mascara really gives great volume and length! A review on this product is coming really soon!
I know that this blog post is looking more and more like a Happy Skin centered blog post, but I can’t help it that I find their products awesome! Happy Skin Cosmetics recently came out with a few new shades of their Shut Up and Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies for the holidays. I blogged about their new launch a few weeks ago and like all the other colors that they’ve launched in the past, I’m in love with the new shades! The brand brought out 3 new colors but I’ve been switching it up between Under the Sheets and Naughty and Nice. The other color called Mistletoe Kiss (a vibrant red) is great as well but I don’t usually go for reds on an everyday basis. The formula of these lip products is very moisturizing yet long-lasting!
I love face masks and the one that I’ve been using in the month of October is the Secret Nature Volcanic Ash Pore Pack. I got this product from the Memebox Special #31 Earth & Sea Cosmetics box. I love how this pore pack cleans out my face as a whole! After using this product, my skin always feels soft, smooth, and clean.
Another product that I’ve been loving and that I also got from the Earth & Sea Cosmetics box is the Ariul Spa Water 24 Hour Moisturizing Refreshing Mist. I use this product after applying toner but before moisturizer. This product adds a refreshing and moisturizing boost to the skin. I also notice that when using this product, the moisturizer that I apply after this product sets really nicely.
