September Favorites 2017

September Favorites

Fall is here and my makeup and hair care routine has changed a bit to match the season! Today I’m sharing my September Favorites, a mix of beauty, hair, and lifestyle products that I absolutely loved last month.


I think I’ve finally found my holy grail foundation and it’s the bareMinerals BarePro Foundation in the shade Pecan 18! I’ve always been a big fan of the bareMinerals Original Foundation, so once I found out that the brand was coming out with a liquid foundation, I couldn’t wait to give it a try! I especially love that it works so well on my combination sensitive skin.

As for lip color, I happened to stumble upon these awesome matte lipsticks by e.l.f. at Target and they are only $3! I have the shades Natural, Wine, Cranberry, Berry Sorbet, Mulberry Maven, and Tea Rose.

As for my favorite cheek products, I am loving tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in the shade Paaarty and Bobbi Brown’s Highlighting Powder in the shade Afternoon Glow. Both cheek products work together to give my skin a beautiful and healthy glow!

September was the perfect time for me to play with different eye makeup looks. I loved using my tarte Tartelette in Bloom eyeshadow palette and my tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte palette. If you’ve watched any of my YouTube makeup tutorials, you’ll know that one of my all-time favorite mascaras is the Chanel Le Volume de Chanel mascara. It’s the perfect mascara for volumized lashes.


I have so many new favorite hair care products lately. I am obsessed with my new Drybar flat iron, it works so well for my thick and curly hair. I also love the Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1 Texturizer and Drybar Sparkling Soda Shine Spray. Both work together to make my straight hair soft and bouncy!

When I wear my hair curly, I use the Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner and Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel. I really like that my hair doesn’t get crunchy after using these products but the curl definition is incredible!
