Getting Ready For Fall Fashion

Autumn is here to stay! And with the first day of Autumn just passing us by a week ago, I don't know how much more official it can get. I'm sure by now you all know that I hate the fact that Summer is going, but I definitely can't deny my love for Fall fashion. Every year I look forward to wearing my cosy sweaters, pretty jackets, and cute booties. Here's a few of my favourite Autumn trends that I'll be wearing all season:

Dabbling Into Fenty Beauty | Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter

Ah, Fenty Beauty. The brand of the moment. The day the line was released, it was all I saw on social media. Though there's quite a few things in the collection to choose from, I decided to opt for one thing before shelling out wads of cash without reading reviews first on them first. The product that caught my attention and was added to my basket within seconds was Rihanna's Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby.

6 New Makeup Brushes In My Collection

There's something about new makeup brushes that just makes me so happy. For the longest time, I've been contemplating on buying some new makeup brushes, but held off because I know quality brushes come at a price. However, when I was IMATS a couple of weeks ago (see my haul here), I knew I had to grab some new new. I ended up picking up six beauties and the best part is that they weren't even too expensive.

Mary Kay's Fall Colour Collection

Mary Kay's Fall Colour Collection - The Glam Surge
Chilly mornings and the sun setting anytime before 8pm is rolling in. Though I'm not a fan of both of those, there is one thing that eases my mind when I think of Autumn - and that is Fall beauty launches! The transition of makeup from Summer to Autumn is always an interesting thing to see. One moment you're wearing light, bright colours, then all of a sudden it's all about finding the perfect berry lipstick.

Making Brush Cleaning A Tad Bit Easier ft. The Brush Bar

Makeup is such a wonderful thing. The way it enhances your beauty and the ability you have to create & express yourself through the art is pretty darn amazing. The many products that are available to do just that is endless. However it's all fun and games until you're all done and realize the tools you used to create your work of art are all filthy. Of course I'm talking about cleaning your makeup brushes - a task that nobody seems to be fond of.

Collective Summer Beauty Haul | ft. Glossier, Morphe, Lime Crime, Nyx

Ugh, why can't I ever keep my money in my damn pockets! I feel like I spent way too much money this summer, but ask me if I have any regrets.. nevaaa! This haul is a collective one from the start of summer up until now, so I don't think my spending was too too out of control when it comes to beauty products. A lot of these things are products I've been meaning to try or repurchase for a while now. However, if you asked me about comment
