october favorites: nail polish, makeup and more

It’s finally November, and it means two things: it’s just two months until Christmas – and it’s time to share my October favorites with you. Here in New York, it’s never fall in October. However, I try to make the best of it and find autumn spirit within myself.6i4dq2erpzo1. Zoya Nail Polishes Collection ‘Urban Grunge.’
I absolutely love this collection of 6 metallics and six pure shades that are perfect for the fall time. With different shades of wine, blue, green and nude, I felt that I didn’t need any other nail polishes as I could use these for any occasion.
2. Eyeshadow Palettes
Double Exposure by Smashbox: at first, I didn’t like it at all. Probably, it was because I’ve bought it in summer, and I never wear eyeshadows during hot months. But now, I’m falling in love with it more and more, I like that it’s tiny but has eight shades. The palette features three perfect shades of brown – and even one of them doesn’t have any shimmer to it. I would also recommend using a wet brush with these shadows.
Glo Minerals’ Elemental Eye Collection features eight shades, four matte and four have shimmer, all of them are wearable, and you can create perfect daytime smokey eyes – or nighttime if you like.
3. Argan Enlightenment Illuminating Wand and Veil by Josie Maran
When I got it last year, I didn’t like it at all as it was more a bronzing shade than a highlighter, but now I’m more tanned, and I love using it to highlight my face when I want something warm and nothing too strong. I usually use Veil as a base eye shadow, and Stick to illuminate my chick bones.
4. Liquid Lipstick by Ciate
I loved the shade called Pin Up. This mauve shade reminds me a lot of Kat Von D’s Lolita, except it has more of a cold undertone. I love Ciate’s formula; it doesn’t dry out my lips though it won’t survive food.
5. Perfumes
Florabotanica by Balenciaga was a weird choice for October as it’s very grassy, cold and fresh, but it was fun wearing it.
Narciso Rodrigues’ For Her and Dolce&Gabanna’s Pour Femme (haha, it’s a coincidence) are two perfectly autumnal scents that are warm, sharp and a bit spicy.
