The end of the week definitely snuck up on me that's for sure! I've had my focus almost completely on starting my stationery business that the days just wiz by! Keeping things simple on the makeup front has become my bread and butter lately. It's all about the ease and whatever can get me out the door not looking sleep deprived the fastest.
With all the talk in the blogosphere about the new Naked Basics 2 Palette I've found myself showing the original palette ($29) some love lately. I'm not a cool toned kind of gal (at least I don't think I am...) so I'm not terribly interested in the new palette. I like the warmer toned shades in the first edition although I find the lighter shades a bit of work to get pigmented on the lids.
In the pan, the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in "Fearless" ($26) looks a little full on, but I've been loving it for a nice pop of color on my dull cheeks. It adds so much to my complexion and I'm glad I gave it a go regardless of pow factor upon first glance.
At the first sign of fall I immediately started to reach for my Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in "Sultry" ($9.49). A dark reddy plum that just screams autumn, I only seem attracted to it once September hits. It's more of a stain than a balm and can be a bit drying at times but nothing a good layer of vasaline can't solve. I'll be sure to be sporting this and other similar shades all season long.
