Good Morning and Happy Monday. This post has been in the making for a while now. I am sharing my updated (for fall) everyday makeup routine. The timing couldn’t be better because Nordstrom is offering limited time savings on your favorite beauty brands HERE. And there are also plenty of opportunities for free gifts with your purchase. I don’t know about you, but I love getting free goodies with my purchases.
Nordstrom has been my go to not only for fashion & shoes but also for all my makeup / skincare purchases. The store offers such a huge selection, and always free shipping and free returns.
Updated Fall Makeup
A lot of you have been asking about the tanning drops – here’s what you need to know.
I use the Tan Luxe Illuminating drops in Medium / Dark. I am naturally pale, but based on the reviews I went with the darker color option. You can control the color with the amount of drops you use.
I add 3-4 drops into my daily moisturizer. I have been using the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. It has a thicker consistency and with the weather slowly changing, I like to prep my skin for cooler temperatures ahead.
Even though you apply the drops with your moisturizer, it is a self tanning product. Same rules apply – distribute evenly, blend into jawline / neck area. And don’t forget to wash your hands after.
I have been using the drops 3-4 times per week to maintain the summer glow.
Mascara / Primer Combo
This combo is an oldie but a goodie. I have been using the Cils primer for years now. Not only does it make your lashes appear longer and thicker, but it’s also infused with vitamins and acts as a conditioner. The Monsieur Big Mascara has been one of my favorites for a while. I rotate between different ones, but always end up coming bak to this one. There are so many gift sets available, and for limited time Lancome is offering a gift with purchase. GIFT WITH PURCHASE – use code REPAIR OR LIFT at checkout to qualify (min $39 purchase).
BRONZER / BLUSH & EYES
I have been loving the Bobbi Brown bronzer / blush duo in 01 “Golden Light / Maui “. Grab this palette while it’s still on sale, plus you will receive a complimentary gift with your purchase!
To create a smokey eye makeup in under a minute, I have been using Bobbi Brown cream shadow stick in Golden Bronze. Just dab it in the crease and outer corner of the lid, the gently dab it blending towards the center of the lid.
UPDATED FALL MAKEUP – LIPS
My new go-to lipstick is the Bobbi Brown Luxe Shine Intense lipstick in Power Lilly. I have been using it with the Mac Lipliner in Soar. I tend to avoid dark browns and reds when it come to lip color. I feel that these colors age me and nobody needs that haha I tend to stick with rich pink and mauve tones. The lipstick is super moisturizing with high shine finish. It is a gorgeous color that will compliment most skin tones.
Thank you for visiting Blushing Rose Style and I hope you enjoyed the post. Make sure to take advantage of the sale event and don’t forget to claim your gifts with purchase. It’s the best time to grab re-fills on your favorite makeup or better yet, try something new!
