I finally got some Christmas shopping done over the weekend and I actually just bought my last gift tonight. My mom’s birthday is this week so I got something for her, too. I’m feeling pretty accomplished since my first few attempts didn’t go so well. But, I’m done now, at least I think I am, haha. The Christmas season is fun but it can be stressful, too. I’m happy to get my shopping out-of-the-way so I can enjoy the other stuff. Like the fresh tree with it’s pretty lights. That’s definitely one of my favorite things about Christmas. What’s your favorite part?

Since I’ve been behind with these roundups I figured I should combine October and November. Here are the pictures and products I shared on Instagram during those 2 months. I’m trying a new way of linking items, I hope you like it!

Roundup- October

Eyeshadow Palette

Concealer | Foundation | Powder | Brush

I’m a big fan of the FitMe line- it works well with my skin.

Book

I saw a lot about this book online and wanted to read it since I’ve been trying to live more simply and be present in the moment. It’s well written and a good reminder to slow down.

Lipstick (in Goddess) | Lip Gloss (in Goddess)

This is not the first time I’ve shared this lip gloss. I’m sticking to fall shades now but this is a favorite of mine.

Sponge Duo | Brush Duo

I like using the big sponge to apply my foundation and blend out my concealer. When I apply my foundation with a brush I use the small sponge to keep concealer smooth under my eye.

I use the bronzer brush daily and the fan brush is great for a more subtle highlight.

Lipgloss (in CEO)

Clearly, I like Lorac glosses. This is my new favorite everyday color!

Lip Gloss

Another new gloss in my collection. This is a perfect vampy color for me because it has cool undertones.

Roundup- November

Palette | Blush Brush

I follow Melissa Michele on YouTube and other social media so I had to try her palette collaboration with Ulta. It’s a nice palette and it’s only $20!

L to R: ABH (in Vamp) | Lorac (in CEO) | NYX (in Soft-Spoken) | NYX (in San Paulo) | NYX (in Violet Femme)

I have a full post on these Fall Lip Colors here.

Vest (Similar) | Boots (Similar)

I love wearing my vest in the fall!

Whitening Pen | Young Living Essential Oil | Cuticle Oil (Similar)| Face Mask

What is it about a face mask that is so relaxing? Maybe because I’m forced to sit still haha. I recently started using this whitening pen and it works well-I like to apply it right before bed.

(I don’t sell oils but if you’re interested in singing up I can connect you with my sponsor!)

Top

Here’s the post for this look.

The velvet and lace details caught my eye! They make it the perfect way to be trendy and still feminine.

Eyeshadow Palette | Lip Liner | Lipstick

This palette has been sitting in my collection for a while now (like years lol) but I haven’t gotten much use out of it. I decided to play with it recently because it’s cool toned shades and those are much more flattering for me.

I recently got this liquid lipstick. I’m kind of over liquid lips because they’re harder for me to work with but this one is so good! It’s softer than most I’ve tried and it really does last! Plus a lighter color is easier to work with. This might be my new favorite makeup look.

Should I continue with a monthly roundup next year? Or should December be my last one? Let me know what you think!
