Monthly Beauty Picks: SEPTEMBER

_1110729-2

For my Beauty Picks this month, I decided to focus on a Fall-friendly makeup refresh!  Even though I mainly use a consistent makeup look, it’s nice to mix it up seasonally to introduce a tweaked color palette or new texture.   For example, when the weather gets a bit cooler, I like to use a creamier texture blush that will keep skin looking dewy in harsher climates! With just a few new fab products this month, I’m transforming my glowy everyday look to reflect Fall’s more warm and earthy tones.  I hope you love them as much as I do!

Eva Amurri Martino of Happily Eva After blog's monthly beauty picks for September include Hourglass concealer

Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer

I had been looking for a new chemical-free concealer and I love this one! It’s substantial enough to cover my dark circles and any redness or blemishes, but it also goes on easily and smoothly.  It’s formulated with Vitamin E to protect the skin, and contains no phthalates, sulfates, or synthetic dyes or fragrances.  I wear “Pearl”.

Chantecaille Cheek Creme Blush, “Shy”

This blush is awesome.  I love the cream texture because it isn’t slippery like a lot of cream blush can be.  It goes on easily and blends well, and I adore the color which is a perfect mix between a dusty rose and a bronzer.  It’s the ideal stepping stone from Summer sun to Winter!  To apply, I swirl the pad of my middle finger in the blush, and then pat it from the apple of my cheeks, along my cheek bone, and up to my temple.  Then I blend with a brush.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, “Bahama”

Another perfect Fall color! This shade of earthy rose is just about as close as I’ll get to the brown lip color trend that is sweeping the nation.  I adore the matte finish of this lip pencil, and it’s beyond easy to apply.  I can even stash this in my diaper bag and apply with no mirror! It creates a sexy lip without being fussy or too dark.

    Beautiful as always. That lip color is to die for! As a bit of a non sequitur, I was reading your post about Spotify and I remembered something funny. Please don’t think I’m weird, but I was listening to the Rocky Horror soundtrack (as teenagers do) and I stumbled upon a list of songs, podcasts etc. voiced by your mom. She actually narrated a fairy tale (I think it was “Jack and the Beanstalk”) and I couldn’t help but think of you and Marlowe. How cool would it be if tehnology allowed Marlowe to be read to by her Honey whenever she pleased?! Anyways I hope this doesn’t come across as invasive, just a tid-bit I thought you’d enjoy.
    Have a Happy Fall! (New England does it like no other)
