Hi.

I'm just a girl rapidly approaching mid-life who believes in awesome skincare, grown-up makeup, effortless hair, and classic style. Enjoy!

Current Fall Makeup

Current Fall Makeup

As fall approaches, wardrobes begin to shift. Because I generally only wear five colors - black, white, gray, taupe, bone - there isn't a stark difference in my appearance between seasons. Sure, sleeves get longer ad material gets thicker, but all in all, my clothing is somewhat seasonless. But what variety I lose in the changing over of my closet, I gain in makeup. Gone are my fast and easy cushion compacts and collection of peach and nude products, and in comes a bit darker, more vampy vibe. That being said, I still prefer a more classic makeup look, but it is a bit more sophisticated than what I slapped on in the summer. So, here is my current everyday fall makeup.
