Fall Beauty Essentials // eyeliner wings & pretty things

You know those people who lose their minds as soon as September begins and start screaming about Halloween? You might even be one of those people. I’m kind of like that except as soon as September begins, regardless of how hot it is, I’m already losing my mind about how it’s basically AUTUMN! Or fall if you prefer the less pretty word for it.

Fall is my favorite season and makeup is one of my favorite things ergo, fall beauty essentials. I already have fall wardrobe essentials if you’d like to check it out, too!
