Hey again everyone! 3 posts in a row! Holy cheese and rice! ;DI really wanted to do a fall and winter favorites since if you remember back, I did a Summer Beauty Essentials and figured I should do a fall and winter one! (I want to warn you first though, this is going to be a looonng post!)


So first off, I love palettes so of course I had to include this category!

I absolutely love my Bobbi Brown  Denim & Rose Palette! The colors are beautiful for the Fall & Winter seasons and it's very high quality (Wanna see my review & swatches of it? Click here!)

I also really love my Smashbox In Bloom Palette, which I know that this is a Spring Palette, but I think that it has a lot of really pretty fall colors in it as well! They're very pigmented and easily coordinated (Wanna see my review & swatches of it? Click here!)

And of course I had to include my Urban Decay Naked Palette! I also find myself gravitating towards this palette for pretty much any look I'm doing, and the colors are so versatile for any season! 


These shadows are my top picks for Fall and Winter!

First off, there are two CoverGirl Shadows that I have been using like crazy! The first one is in the color: Mink. It's very pigmented and and beautiful as an all-over lid color (:

My second favorite CoverGirl Shadow would have to be the color: Tapestry Taupe. It's soo nicely pigmented and I love using it as a crease and outer v color (:

I have also been absolutley in love with my NARS Tzarine Shadow Duo! It's sooo pigmented and makes for an absolutley beautiful eye. I like wearing the light gold shade all over the lid, as a brow bone highlight, and on the inner corner, and then using the dark grey in the crease and outer v, and also as liner on the bottom lashline. (To see the full tutorial with swatches, click here!)

I've also really been loving two of my MAC Shadows to create a smokey look, including my MAC Shadow in Satin Taupe, which is a beautiful dark brown with a hint of plum.

And my last shadow favorite would have to be MAC Ricepaper as an inner corner and brow bone highlight!


I absolutley love brown and gold liners and cream shadows for Fall & Winter.

This is a very recent purchase (you probably saw it in my Collective Haul) and I love it as an all-over lid color and inner corner highlight! It's the Benefit Gilded Tangerine Gold Highlighter.

I also really love my Tarte Lock & Roll in Bronze to create a beautiful Fall brown smokey eye! (Click here to see the full tutorial!)

And of course, I had to include my Urban Decay Double-sided 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Whiskey & Zero because it's my absolute favorite overall liner!

I also had to include my Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen in Blackest Black because it's my absolute favorite liquid liner!

And my favorite primer of the moment: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden, which is a matte, brightening yellow-toned primer! It has great coverage and really brightens my eyes. And when I use this, I experience absolutley NO creasing or smudging! Miracle eye product? I'd think so ;)


I really just love a good primer that works, a good brown mascara, and a good volumizing mascara any time of the year.

I recently got this free Deluxe Sample of the Diorshow Maximizer Base Mascara Lash Primer and let me tell ya, this is a great primer! It volumizes, improves your lashes, and actually has fibers that attach to the end of your lashes and makes them longer! Woah, right? ;)

I also really love a good dark brown mascara, such as this Benefit BADgal Brown Mascara. It's volumizing, and a wonderful brown color (:

And of course, my all-time favorites, Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara in Blackest Black (For a full review, Click here!)

And of course my all-time favorite bottom lash mascara, Maybelline Great Lash in Blackest Black (For a full review, Click here!)


My all-time favorite brow product is of course the Revlon Brow Fantasy (it truly is a fantasy ;D) in Light Brown. The pencil side fills in my brows perfectly and the tinted gel on the opposite side does a great job setting them and making them just that much more natural looking! And a new brow favorite, my Sephora Brow Tint in Medium, it's basically a felt-tip marker that creates a very natural-looking brow! (For swatches, Click here!)


Now for the face products! As for the "necessities," for foundation, I love my Neutrogena Healthy Skin in 90 Warm Beige. It has great coverage and is very moisturizing and light (: As for concealer, I recently picked up the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15 Fair and I really like it so far, it's very moisturizing and has good coverage for undereye circles. And as for powder, my all-time favorite is the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium, it has good coverage as well and makes my face look almost airbrushed!


As for blush, I really love darker pinks and light peaches for Fall and Winter, such as my Revlon ColorStay Mineral Blush in Roseberry, L'Oreal True Match Blush in Precious Peach, and Benefit Benetint!

Even in the Fall & Winter, I love using bronzer to give my face a nice, healthy glow. Right now I'm really loving my Benefit Hoola Bronzer and NYC Smooth Skin Sunny Bronzer! They're both matte bronzers, but NYC Sunny is just a bit lighter than Hoola.

I still love a nice highlight in the Fall and Winter months, and I always gravitate towards my Benefit High Beam because it provides just a nice, subtle glow (:


For Fall & Winter, I like the more dark pinks and medium-toned reds.

One lipgloss that I've been raving about is my Co. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tint in Pink Mint! It has a great amount of natural pink color, moisturizes, and gives a great amount of shine. It also gives your lips a nice, refreshing minty feeling (: (For my full raving, Click here!)

The one other gloss that I really love in the Fall & Winter is my Almay Whipped Gloss in Candied Cider, it's  a beautiful medium-pink, opaque gloss (:

The three lipsticks that I really love for fall are: (from left to right) my Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Tea Rose, my CoverGirl Lipstick in Warm Brick, and my Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Just Enough Buff!


Lastly, some of the fragrances that I absolutley LOVE for Fall & Winter are really warm and cozy include: (from left to right) my Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy, Bath & Body Works Sensual Amber, Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar, and my Bath & Body Works Secret Wonderland!

Welp, this concludes my extremely long Fall / Winter Favorites for 2011! I hope that you enjoyed it and that it helped you with what products to try out for the Fall & Winter seasons!
