  2. Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie

  4. Mac Blush- Peaches & Starlooks Blush- Cuty Peach
  5. Pure Smile Facial Masks in Peach Milk, Strawberry Milk & Milk

1) I absolutely love using the Beauty Sponge for my under eye concealer.  It blends out the concealer perfectly and gives a flawless look!  I prefer the sponge over a concealer brush.  I call it a beauty sponge and not the beauty blender because the ones I own are knock offs from ebay =).  They work just as great and are less than half the price of the original beauty blender. 2) The Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie has become a staple in my makeup looks recently.  I like to darken the lips a bit by using a deep berry lipliner underneath, it just screams fall!  3) Another staple or I should say staples this month are the following MAC eyeshadows:  Cranberry, Satin Taupe, Shroom & Ricepaper.  Cranberry is a great color to use during the fall season, it's not too bright but it gives a simple fall look some great color.  It's a beautiful berry color and gives off a nice frosty sheen when worn, especially when it's applied wet.  I love smokey eyes and satin taupe is a great color to sweep on the lids and lash line when wearing one!  It's a beautiful greyish brown eyeshadow with a frosty sheen to it and I mean frosty in a good way that intensifies a look without making it look too shimmery.   Shroom and Ricepaper are great highlighters under the browbone and in the inner corners of the eyes to brighten up a look.  Rice paper has a yellowish gold metallic frost finish that is also great to sweep all over the lids whereas Shroom has more of a light beige satin finish that is perfect for highlighting.  4) Now, I am usually more of a pink blush kind of girl, however, I have been gravitating more towards blushes with a peachy undertone and 2 of my favorites this month are Mac's Peaches & Starlooks Cuty Peach.  Peaches is a orange peach sheertone blush that looks matte and cuty peach is more of a pink blush with peachy undertones that has a light sheen to it.  5) Sundays are my personal leave me alone I am pampering myself today type of days.  I tend to my nails, hair, and skin on Sundays and that includes masks!  I am obsessed with all kinds of masks, from clay to facial cloths.  The Pure Smile Masks smell delicious and make my skin feel super soft!  I love the peach milk, strawberry milk and the original milk ones.  These are also very inexpensive less than $2!  I like to use them cold, makes my skin feel a bit more refreshed but you can also use them warm but just tossing the package in some warm water for a few minutes.  6)  Nivea's Smoothness Lip Balm glides on the lips very easily and really moisturizes the lips.  It also contains spf 10!  It feels a bit similar to vaseline, just not as thick or greasy.  Another one of my favorites from this line is the milk and honey lip balm.
