Lipstick Picks (Fall)

 I decided to show three lipsticks that I think will be perfect for fall. I know it's still summer, but before we know it, the leaves will be falling and the air turning chilly and crisp.
For fall, my lipstick picks are Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Frosting, Maybelline Color Whisper in Made-It Mauve, and Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Natural in N28.
 Sugar Frosting is a super light almost nude pink. It's very shimmery and good for a natural look.

Made-It Mauve is a brownish-red. Like the other Color Whispers, it's sheer. I can definitely see this lipstick paired with a strong gold eye.

N28 is my favourite of the three (but I do wish it had an actual name!). It's a deep purple/magenta. It definitely adds that pop of colour while still sticking with the palette of fall.

Gatsby With a Twist

When I first read The Great Gatsby (in anticipation of the movie), I fell in love. I'm not sure if it was the writing or the story or just the whole feeling of sadness and restlessness, but something about it stood out from other books I'd read. I was super excited for the movie, and I have to say it definitely met my expectations. It was artsy and mysterious and I left the theater totally in love with the twenties.
So when I saw this gorgeous drop waist dress for sale at a boutique while I was on vacation, I knew I had to have it. I had no idea when I'd wear it, but I knew I'd regret not getting it.
Today, the middle of the summer, just like when The Great Gatsby was set, I felt I should wear it, even if I didn't have an amazing party to go to. Unfortunately, I don't have a cool twenties bob, nor do I have that decade's style of shoes. So instead, I put on my favourite platforms and some red lipstick, spicing up the Gatsby look.

What I'm wearing:
dress - Shabby Chic boutique
shirt/jacket - H&M
shoes - Urban Outfitters
lipstick - Revlon Certainly Red

Lipstick Love

When it comes to makeup, lip products are one of my favourites. I think the first lipstick I ever wore was a bright red Dior one that belonged to one of my friend's sister, and I fell in love.
This summer I've been loving bright pink lipsticks, so here are three of my favourites!

Cherry On Top is one of the Maybelline Color Whispers. It's more of a sheer lipstick, but it still adds a pop of colour.

Pink Lyric by NYX is a bright creamy pink. I love pairing it with a little mascara and a clean face.

Lollipop is a Lip Butter by Revlon. It's more of a magenta, and is a little bit pearlescent. It's a nice deeper purple tinted pink.

Vintage Shoot

A little over a month ago, my cousin, Josie, took me on a vintage photoshoot. We wandered around a meadow with balloons, flower crowns, and of course, vintage cameras and suitcases. It was so much fun! She is so talented and the photos turned out wonderful. Here are just a few of them! 

The sky was so incredible!
