I usually don’t post on Saturdays, but today is the start of fall–and well, I have to celebrate in my most fall outfit. The “Stanford” sweater is actually vintage! It belonged to my mom in the 80′s. The lace0side leggings (I don’t get to wear these nearly enough, btw) are from Papaya. The cute collared hearts piece was supposed to be a dress–but it totally shrank. Yes, again with my ELF Cheerful Cherry lipstick. It really is my fall favorite.
Even though the Fall Equinox is today, I don’t feel like fall has really set in. It’s definitely starting to creep around the corner, but I’m still holding out for 60 and 70 degree temps. Enough of this heat already! (But don’t come for a while, Winter.)
But, regardless of if we like it, the seasons are changing. Whether you pronounce it “Ee-quinox” or “Eh-quinox,” let’s remember to come together at this Season of Thankfulness–and let’s just all get along, okay?!
You can click this photo to see it larger if you want. I don’t normally do that with my photos. Keep scrolling for a delicious photo sampler of the makeup! More to come by the end of the week–I’m hoping to maybe even get a video. I’m in LOVE.

A mini-update because I just ordered some make-up on E.L.F. and I CAN’T WAIT to get it! They’re have a 50% off sale for some of their makeup. Let’s just say I got a $50 order half off!!
So excited! Below is a list of what I purchased. I’ve been needing new makeup, but some of this is also for the Halloween costume upon which I’ve already decided. More about that on Monday! Hope the weekend’s going well!
You can search any of these product numbers on the E.L.F. website (http://eyeslipsface.com) and it’ll pull up all the colors and versions of the product.
By no means am I completely saying goodbye to summer, but I have been thinking a lot about what look I’m going to go with for fall. I can just imagine the hayrides and corn mazes and hot chocolate! I wanted to go a little bit more dramatic and opted for a cherry lip and dark purple eye. It’s just a step lighter than smokey, which I love! I also put my hair in a side pony tail and just barely curled the ends with my straightener.
Is it me or does it seem like you have to work a lot harder in the colder seasons to look good? In summer, you can just look as natural as can be because the sun does all the work.
Summer is drawing to a close and as such, I wanted to give a kind of tribute to the bronzes and light colors that I’ve used on many a weekend trip.
Here I used my E.L.F. Sassy, Earthy and Chestnut eye shadows and lined the top lid with a pink/brown liquid eyeliner from Almay. The bottom lid is lined with the Sassy eye shadow. Lips are Body Shop & E.L.F. lip balm (with a Burt’s Bees base, of course.)
