As much as I’ll miss the beloved summer and all its glory, I happily welcome the fall and all it has in store!

Decorate!

Decorate your house, porch, bedroom, dorm room, or college apartment with all the glory of fall!

For outside, hang a fall wreath, make a cute fall display of pumpkins, bales of decorative hay, pretty fall grasses and flowers.

For indoors, add fall flower arrangements, fall scented candles, fill clear jars with faux leaves, chestnuts or fall coloured candy, and add fall coloured throw pillows and blankets to beds, sofas and chairs.

Indulge in Fall Flavours!

Pumpkin, caramel, and apple just to name a few. Fall has so many fantastic flavours to be enjoyed! Take advantage of the bounty of fall and drink up those pumpkin spice frapps, lattes and warm apple ciders, make some candy apples and caramel corn, bake an apple or pumpkin pie or try making a pot of milled wine! (Easier than you think and so worth it!)

Shop for New Fall Makeup!

It’s time to put away the pretty pinks and summer nudes, fall makeup means going darker and bolder! Beautiful coppers, bronzes and browns are perfect for fall. Darker lips are also a must this season. Don’t forget your nails! Deep reds, charcoal greys, dark burgundies and taupes are all great fall nail colours!

Have a Fall Photo Shoot!

Take advantage of the natural beauty fall has to offer! Pumpkin fields, apple orchards, and parks full of pretty leaves are all perfect settings for some stellar picture-taking opportunities!

Have Some Fun!

Gather your friends and venture through a corn maze, go on a hayride, pick apples, go for a walk or hike and observe nature’s fall beauty, have some friends over and make a pot of milled wine and enjoy by the fireplace, go to a fall fair, have an awesome Halloween party, visit a pumpkin patch (for the pics and the pumpkins) and pick your own perfect pumpkin! Have fun!

I’ll definitely be doing all of the above, how about you?

Look Naturally Flawless in Nude

Subtle and chic, a nude lip gives you an effortlessly elegant, fresh look!

The perfect nude lip should flatter your skin tone and brighten your face, while looking soft and pretty and its low maintenance unlike a red lip!

The great thing about a nude lip is that you can wear it with simple makeup for a flawless natural look or a with a smokey eye, allowing the eyes to stand out while the lips are soft and subtle.

Picking the right shade of nude is crucial to achieving the desired look! Too light and it washes you out. Too dark and you’ve strayed from the nude family all together!

Lighter complexions should stick to lighter beiges and pale, pinky tones. Medium skin tones work well with golden beiges, light caramel browns and peachy pink nudes. For darker skin tones, mocha hues and bronzey browns work well.

Enjoy looking flawless while going nude!

How to: Perfect Eyebrows

When it comes to brows bigger really is better! A strong, bold, well-defined brow is everything! Eyebrows frame your face and play an important role in achieving a great looking eye and overall makeup look.

Getting the perfect brow does require effort and maintenance but is so worth it! Be sure to use good quality brow products to ensure a natural looking, long-lasting brow! (I’ll mention my favs below, both drugstore and high-end).

To create the perfect brow follow my step-by-step below.

Step 1

Start with a shaped brow. Once your base makeup is complete start by lining the underside of your brows.


Step 2

Brush the brow hair downwards and outline the top of the brow starting just beyond the start of the brow being sure to achieve a perfectly tapered brow end.

Step 3

This step is crucial to achieve that polished yet natural looking brow! With gentle, short strokes follow your own brow hair and fill in the entire brow until your brows look full and luscious, brush upwards with spoolie to blend out any lines.


Step 4
Take a minute to observe that both brows are the same thickness and length. Most people do not have identical brows. For a more defined brow apply concealer to a flat brush and apply along the underside of the brow and blend. Set with a clear or tinted brow gel to be sure your brows last all day and night!

*Tip

For a more intense looking brow, great for a party night when you want to make an eye-opening statement go a little thicker and bolder! We all know big brows are currently coveted!

Here are some of my favourite brow products that work well and last!
