I am embracing autumn in every single way possible (as much as I can considering I live in the tropics). You can be certain that hot coffees and pumpkin flavored beers are being consumed on a weekly basis. In terms of makeup, I have been favoring vampy lipsticks (so original~) and really warm, almost orange toned, eyeshadows. Here's a makeup look I created the other day incorporating the warmer eyeshadows in my collection...

I was recently contacted and asked if I would like to create a makeup look that would complement a wedding gown. It was not in exchange of sponsorship or products, but the idea still appealed to me because I had never posted a bridal inspired look on my blog. It thought it would be fun to create one so here it is! I was sent three images of wedding gowns to choose from and the one above was my favorite. The company that contacted me is Lover.ly, a wedding inspiration/planning website.

I had never published a Drugstore Hits and Misses on my blog before. I enjoy watching/reading these videos/posts a lot but usually don't have enough products to create one myself. This time I have a few and they fall into three categories: like, dislike, and indifferent. Admittedly, this is an old post that I had already photographed but never got around to writing so most of these products have been featured here already. My opinions on them haven't changed and I will link to individual reviews below.

June. I was really excited with my new glasses because I had been wearing the same pair for almost five years. I wore them for a while and loved them. Some time after that, I was offered to try a new pair and was encouraged to choose one of their more recently released frames. I thought about it and decided to accept the second pair from Firmoo because, first of all, glasses are both a necessity and an accessory; you can always benefit from having more than one. Secondly, I regretted not getting the anti-glare lens upgrade last time and wanted to do so this time around. Here are the details about my second experience.

Here's a lipstick which I'm sure won't suit most people's taste. Whenever dark or vampy lipstick shades from MAC come up on blogs, Film Noir ($16) isn't usually among them. I do understand why. It's a very dark color and it leans more towards brown, as opposed to the typical purple or red undertone. I purchased it for that particular reason. When I was doing a roundup post on my dark lipsticks, I noticed a lot where looking
exactly the same too similar on the lips.

Here's another makeup look I found from when I visited my sister in Seattle. I did some shopping and touristing that day so the look is very minimal. I skipped the eyeliner because I simply couldn't be bothered. Actually, I've been going out sans eyeliner for about two months now. I'm sure the next time I try to wear it I'll have totally forgotten how to make a straight wing. Anyhow, I used some eyeshadows from Coastal Scents and along with the first NARS product I ever bought, their Cactus Flower cream blush. Here's how my face turned out...

If you've never taken a look at the MAC Mineralize Blushes ($27) then I highly suggest you do. I'm a huge fan of the shade Warm Soul (reviewed previously here) and now I'll be showing you Dainty, a warm toned light/medium pink. Keep reading to see my full thoughts and swatches.
