September has arrived and I cannot be more excited. This is the season for taking day trips to see the foliage, go apple picking, and shop for some new boots and cozy sweaters.
For the past three months, when it came to makeup my focus was to just control the shine. I would wear a sheer, juicy lipstick or some gloss with mascara. Now that the temperatures are cooling down, I’m slowly starting to wear more eye makeup. I am currently obsessed with our HazyView.Dense Eyeshadow in Planet Earth. Formulated with plant-based squalane along with rich fatty acids, this highly-pigmented deep cocoa shadow glides on so evenly. The elegant burgundy-colored micro-flecks add a touch of gorgeous radiance without a frosted or high-shimmer finish.
On more low-key days, I use a small fluffy eye blender brush for just a wash of color on the lids and buff the lower outer lashes to open and balance the eyes. When I'm feeling more like a rockstar, I apply more layers to create a smoldering look and also use it as a powder eyeliner to add more depth and definition. The 90’s grunge eye makeup trend is coming back (has it really been thirty years??) and I'm completely ready for it.
