Pre-Fall Makeup

It’s almost fall. Can you believe it? Where did the summer go?

As soon as The September Issue hits the shelves, summer is dead to me and I’m all about fall. But it’s still hot outside so it’s too early for tweed and full spackle.

For this time of year, I like to keep the formula light and the colors a little deeper.

For lips, I’m loving RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in Diabolique, which is a deep red stain that is very buildable. And, just like my beloved Beautycounter, it’s non-toxic. And, it’s a great blush too (use a light hand and blend blend blend.)

Beautycounter Dew Skin maintains because it’s a Gwyneth pick and she knows things. And, you can buy it from me.


I’m in love with Pacifica polish since it wear quite well for a 7-free polish and has a wide range of colour. For pre-fall, I love Drift.

I’ve also discovered a new youthifying trick. I put a dab of RMS Beauty Living Luminizer on the inside corner of my eye and BAM: I look 25. (I don’t really, but it does open the eye and make you look less tired.)

For mascara, I’m back to Blinc, since it works with my post-eye surgery eye woes. I don’t wear eyeliner much, but when I do, it’s always Marc Jacobs Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner.

And for brows, Beautycounter’s brow pencil is a capable player.

Are you planning to change your makeup routine in September?





  1. Hi Jen, I normally don’t wear too much make up, but right now I am in the process of buying new glasses and will be choosing between two pairs of transparent frames. (I usually go with the ‘librarian with nerdy dark frames look, so this is quite a departure for me.) I think I will definitely have to up my eye game – only thing is, I’m really not good at doing my eyes, which are rather hooded. My plan is to go to Nordstrom and get some help at one of the make up counters, Bobbi Brown perhaps. Other than that, I can’t think about Fall – it’s still way too hot! Plus we are going on a Mediterranean cruise in October, so I won’t even be putting all my summer stuff away any time soon!


    • Bobbi Brown is good. Her colours are classic and you cannot go far wrong. I’m sure you are looking forward to your cruise. Not too long away now! So exciting. XO


Love to hear from you!
