The November Beauty Bundle
With colder nights and chunky knits making their appearances, it's obvious that we are in the middle of fall. This month's 'Beauty Bundle' is a lovely mixture of drugstore and higher end products that are perfect for the month of November.
L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Eyeshadow in Bronzed Taupe: This eyeshadow demands attention when worn as a one-swipe type of glorious color. Its densely packed pigments are gorgeous and catch the light perfectly to make the lids look almost glossy. When paired with a couple coats of mascara and a light base, it's the perfect, sultry "I'm not trying" type of look.
NYC Color Wheel Mosaic Face Powder in Rose Glow: A popular drugstore favorite, this powder highlights, bronzes, and adds a touch of color to the face. Soft and natural, this blush goes for the whole pinched, just out for a run cheek that's perfect for Autumn.
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation in Sand Beige: Disclaimer- this foundation is not for the faint of heart. Silk Creme is one of my top ten base products, but I can easily find it to be a bit heavy. When mixed with my Chanel Vitalumier Aqua Foundation, I find a perfect coverage base with a long lasting, subtle glow.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze: A favorite of every beauty blogger and her uncle, this stuff seriously does not budge after application. I can trust it to last up to 18 hours without a crease or a smudge. It looks gorgeous as one of those shadows that has a bit of a darker shadow when blended into the socket. Looking for a cream shadow that does double duty on the lid and in the crease? This one's your pick.
Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Broadest Berry: The perfect plummy "This is my natural lip color" shade that looks perfect blended into the lips as a stain. The twist up crayon packaging is great for on the go and it lasts all day long.
Chloe Eau de Parfum: Although it's much more of a fresh, spring-y shade, I love this perfume for Autumn/Winter time. The light scent is great for layering with spicy or woodsy perfumes and colognes. The beautiful glass packaging also looks amazing on the dressing table.
