It’s October? Already? 2018 flew by!!! I’ve had some MAJOR life changes in 2018 and can’t believe we are already knocking on 2019’s door.
One major change was a cross-country move to the desert town of Palm Springs, CA. Now that we live in Palm Springs, fall looks a bit different for us than it did in Birmingham. Palm Springs is hot year round, an average fall day is 85 with s slight breeze. Birmingham, AL isn’t known for its cool temperatures but its the coldest climate I have ever lived in and I was obsessed with fall there.
Palm Springs is the most beautiful and instagrammable place I have ever lived but definitely comes with some downsides, like no seasons. I don’t get to experience the leaves changing or the cool evenings of fall but that doesn’t mean I can’t get myself in the Fall Spirit. I love Halloween and my birthday is in the Fall so I have lots of things to look forward to in Fall.
One of the things I really look forward to is updating my makeup routine. No matter the actual weather, every season I love to update my makeup routine just a little. For instance, in summer I like lots of golds and shimmer and by winter I prefer a clean more matte look. In the fall, I like to soften my blush to a more mauve color and use a lot of cool-toned eyeshadows. I like to subtly update my entire makeup routine every season but one thing I really love to update is my lip color.

I’ve said it once, I’ll say 10 more times, I LOVE A BOLD LIP! This summer I was obsessed with a very glossy nude lip but my usual go-to colors are purples and reds with a strong brown undertone.
Okay now, let’s get to the lip colors I am OBSESSING over this fall.
I have talked about this ALL over this blog but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE lipstick! To quote my girl Rhianna, “Lipstick. It draws attention away from any flaws. When someone is wearing lipstick, you just assume they’re wearing a full face of makeup. And guys are stupid–they won’t notice when you’re not.” YES GIRL!!! I couldn’t agree more! Its the easiest makeup to apply and really completes a look.
If you were to look in my current makeup bag about 40% of the bag is lip products, I really can’t live without a strong lip collection. What’s your go-to makeup product? Are you as obsessed with lip products as I am? If so, what brands are you obsessing over? I always need more lipsticks!!!
