Fall 2014 Fashion, Hair + Makeup Haul



August has been the most exciting yet intense month of my life! My no-longer little Australian shepherd puppy is growing taller and longer by the day, and I have been so busy with work that I haven't been sleeping or eating well. To remedy this unfortunate health crisis, I embarked on my first official juice cleanse to clear out my digestive tract and 'reset' my body. I love juice and it has been quite effective thus far, but the second day was pretty awful. I was sluggish, cranky, and craving pizza every waking minute! This, of course, called for a bit of extra shopping. And while not all of my acquisitions made it into this video (of course my Tom Ford Fall order arrives the day after I film), I am happy to share some wonderful new goodies with you!

So many of you asked me for a Cle de Peau 201 lipstick dupe that I made it a mission to find a similar color. Koh Gen Do's new Fall Lipstick in BE04 is as close at it gets in terms of finish, texture and shade. It's also a lot more affordable, so give it a whirl and let me know what you think! I know most of you are waiting in anticipation for my Tom Ford Fall 2014 Review + Tutorial, so I promise I will have it posted late next week. I just received all my purchases from Neiman Marcus today, which means it is time to photograph and swatch NUDE DIP! If you are interested in the TF eyeshadow palette, call any Neiman Marcus store and have them ship it to you from a store since it sold out online within a day. Good luck! xo

Dior Fall 2014 '5 Couleurs' Eyeshadow Palettes in Pied de Poule and Tutu + Vernis Gel in Pied de Poule and Carre Bleu



Dior's Fall collections never fail to impress me. Now available at Nordstrom, the newly repackaged and reformulated eyeshadow quints come in five different colorways, all reinvented to achieve multi-faceted looks. The matte, satin, iridescent, and ultra-shimmery eyeshadow formulas are intended to create varying effects to suit any occasion. 876 Tralfagar seems to be the running favorite thus far, but I will be featuring my top two picks after the jump!

Shu Uemura Fall 2014 Brave Beauty Collection Review, Photos, Tutorial



I love the concept of this Brave Beauty campaign. In my opinion, brave beauty is all about assertiveness. Some colors and trends can be intimidating, but researching, practicing, and wearing any look of your choice with confidence makes all the difference! Branch out and experiment. Makeup is about reinventing yourself just as much as it is about embracing/enhancing your features, so try to relax and have fun! More photos and individual product breakdowns after the jump!
