My Fall Fragrance Additions ($25 or less!) by Erin Baynham

Fall Fragrances by Distillery General, Otremier and Elizabeth & James Although I’ve been a fragrance fan for years, I only really wore them when I was going out for an event or a date, or maybe to church. But now, I’m a fan of a daily fragrance. The first two fragrances came from my new favorite store, Anthropologie!

Eau de Toilette Vanille (1.6 oz, $18) is a pure vanilla scent that I wear non-stop. It’s like warm vanilla on a Fall day. It’s not overwhelming or super sweet.

Distillery General Eau De Parfum in Strawberry Vine is to die for. The second is called Strawberry Vine (1.7 oz, $25) , and it’s described as “a charming fusion of red fruits, nutty essences and soothing amber vanilla”. No wonder I liked it so much! Go Be Lovely Rollerball in Coconut Mango is my next bet!

The third is a rollerball from Elizabeth and James (.34 oz/ $22) . I love warm, spicy scents, so this one didn’t dissapoint! I’d been spying this one for a couple months, and I finally added it to my dream team. It’s described as “an addictive blend of alluring violet, sensual sandalwood, and rich vanilla that strike the perfect balance between masculine and feminine”.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Make Up For Ever: Part 1 by Erin Baynham

Hey girlies,

I have such a treat for you! I am working on a MONSTER story for you from the fabulous Make Up For Ever. It's a makeup powerhouse, and it needs the recognition that it deserves. I want to prep you all for the story, which includes a step-by-step guide to the hottest Fall look, and plenty of your favorite beauty questions answered! I absolutely can't wait to post it.

To prep you for the big story, here's a tutorial on Make Up For Ever foundation by Sephora. This is a great way to learn how to do foundation, especially by MUFE's standards. At the boutique a few days ago, I found some new favorites. All Mat is an amazing gel that keeps shine away all day. TRUST ME. I applied it around 10am, walked around Harlem for 3 hours in the hot sweltering heat, then back out to Chelsea for a comedy show with my roommate. It's 2am and I still have not a speck of visible oil on my face. This is the one!!!

There is a really interesting page with all of the tips and tricks of the brand. It highlights the products that makeup artists swear by and what you need in your personal collection. I love it because they have created products to help with the requests that we have all asked for! You know, long lasting shadows, lipstick that doesn't fade after 20 minutes, face powder that is non-cakey, etc. I already have the Eye Seal, Mist &Fix and Matte Lip on my To-Check-Out-At-Sephora list.
