I FIND BEAUTY IN THINGS THAT ARE ODD AND IMPERFECT- THEY ARE MUCH MORE INTERESTING.
Hello everyone! As happy as I am that October is on the way, I am hanging on tight and screaming, “How is this year going by so fast?!” It’s insane how there is only three more months in 2017. Anyways, I’m going to kick off my favorites by starting off with the weather. Finally, we’ve gotten out of the 100’s and 90’s and we’re in the 80’s and 70’s! Okay, I know this is literally the lamest favorite ever, but still, thank God the unbearable heat is over.
The next favorite I have are three of the Motives Pressed Shadows. One of them is one I’ve mentioned before, but I wanted to mention it again. The first is Bedroom Eyes, which is a subtle purple taupe with gold reflects and is perfect for a natural eye makeup look or a smokey intense look. The next two shades are no longer available, but I will link a similar one to their name. One is Catwalk (similar one: Tripped Out) which is a deep olive green with gold reflect and perfect for autumnal looks and really makes brown eyes pop. The last one is Rapture (similar one: Lit) which is a bright copper with orange tons, again, perfect for autumnal looks and makes any eye color stand out.
I was giving someone a make over at the beginning of the month and gave her a choice of palettes I could use on her. She chose the Motives I Do Palette. Once I was finished with the look on her I was obsessed and wondered why I hadn’t picked up this palette recently. I’ve been using it on a regular basis now and am back in love with it. It contains 3 matte eyeshadows, 2 shimmer shadows, a highlight, a bronzer/contour shade, a blush, and a mini kohl liner. It is definitely worth every penny that was spent on it.
I am now going to mention these brushes from Mikasa Beauty. I never mention brushes, but I am in absolute love with these brushes. They are excellent quality and the brush hairs are so soft. I have the F100 which is their powder brush, the F300 which is their foundation brush, the F120 which is their tapered contour brush (I use it to highlight the face), the E320 which is their tapered blending brush, and the E230, which is their Eye Shader Brush.
I also have their lemon drop, which is their version of a beauty sponge and I really life it as well! It’s not too firm or hard, and when you dampen it, it is so soft and bouncy. My Mom bought their full set and loves them and I love all of those as well. I bought the Mikasa 5 Piece Complexion Brush Set which is $65 with a value of $77.

Also from Mikasa Beauty is their CND Vinylux Weekly Polish in #110 Dark Lava. It is the most perfect autumnal shade for the nails and is such a deep and rich berry shade. I saw it when I was looking through their nail polishes and I knew that I had to get this one. I love it so much and it goes with everything.
Lastly for my favorites are these ear cuffs that I actually made for myself. I made two ear cuffs in gold and I also took apart a really heavy ear cuff I never wore and made a small one to wear, and I love them! I’ve been wearing these ear cuffs every single day since I made them in the beginning of the month. They add a little bit of edge without being too editorial. They’re so perfect and I just love them.
Alrighty guys, that’s it for this month’s favorites! I hope you all had the best September ever and I can’t wait for October!!! I love you all!
