Fall Beauty Favorites!

I think fall makeup is my absolute favorite type of makeup to wear. I feel that you can experiment more and become more daring. I love wing liner, super dramatic lashes, mauve or darker lips and definitely a STRONG highlight to keep that summer glow. #highlightonfleek ;) 
So here are my everyday staples for fall that I think everyone should have in their makeup bags.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer (the pore minimizing one) | MUFE Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation (153=Y405 Golden Honey) | Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer (Med-Light Neutral) *Hands down the best concealer I have ever used, very full coverage.

Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil (in the shade-Medium brown) | Anastasia Clear Brow Gel (best to keep crazy brow hairs in place)

Kat Von D Ink Liner (in the color-Trooper) | L'oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara
NARS blush (in shade-Dolce Vita) *my favorite NARS blush, I'm obsessed! | Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer (in shade- Dark Chocolate) *smells just like hot cocoa! | BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector (in shade-Champagne Pop) *THE best/prettiest highlighter on the market!

CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick (in shades 34 La Raffinée+39 La Somptueuse)
*LOVE these, very moisturizing and long wearing. Plus the packaging..I mean c'mon so perfect!

M.A.C Lip Pencil (in shade-Hover) | Marc Jacobs High Shine Lip Laquer (in shades Pretty Thing + Hey You)

Tarte Swirl Power Contour + Bronzer Brush | M.A.C Powder/Blush Brush (#129) *This was the first makeup brush I ever owned, got it 9 yrs ago and it's still going strong!

I hope you all enjoyed this post of my beauty favorites for fall. Comment below and tell me your favorite fall beauty must haves! Until next time...

Fall In The Smoky Mountains

This week was absolutely amazing. Alec and I went up to Bryson City, North Carolina and stayed at a family members cabin up in the Smokeys. The view from the cabin was breathtaking, we both were excited for something other than the 80 degrees we get back home in Florida. The first day was a pretty relaxing day, we just got situated, went and bought groceries at the cute little supermarket in town, and admired the scenery.
Insane right?! This was our view from the cabin. (Ugh can I go back now?)

Day 2: We met up with my dad at The North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville. It was so beautiful and botanical. It even had it's own green house!

On me: Faux fur pom beanie (similar here) | Sweater: Target (old) | leggings | duck boots (the hunter green are also really cute.)

My dad snapped this picture of us at the Arboretum.  Definitely going to be a new profile picture lol. (Everything Alec is wearing is from American Eagle)

Isn't this green house cool?

The bonsai exhibition garden was so cool, I had no idea that their are that many different bonsai trees all over the world.

Hope y'all enjoyed this post from our first two days in North Carolina, we already want to go back! Next post will be on days two and three, so look out for that.
