Holding On To Summer EotD

It's Labor Day here in the US, which is the holiday everyone associates with the end of summer and the beginning of autumn.  But I am not ready for summer to be over.  In the most serious way.  I know this summer has been one of the hottest on record for the entire earth, so I'm sure there are plenty of people ready for autumn.  However, our summer was pretty mild, temperature-wise.  I personally love having at least a few scorching hot days each year just so it's obvious it's really summer.  I even had to get out some sweaters a couple weeks ago.  Bah.

Anyhow, I decided that I was going to keep using summery makeup colors for as long as I can stand it.  I love fall fashion and makeup that is all moody and deep and jewel-toned and what not, so I will probably start transition to wearing them soon.  But not yet!  So, I used the Too Faced à la mode Eyes palette from their spring/summer collection today.

I used:
  from the Too Faced à la mode Eyes palette
                      Jardin (coral pink) all over the moving lid
                      Soleil (reddish brown) in the crease
                      St. Tropez (cream with tiny glitter) under the brow and in the inner corner
                      La Croisette (ivory) by the tear duct
                      De La Mer (navy blue) as liner on the upper and lower lashlines
  Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner in Fierce Blue on the lower waterline
  L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara

I love the color "Jardin" from the Too Faced palette.  It's such a pretty, feminine shade with enough gold shimmer to make it seem almost duo-chrome-y.  Plus, jardin translates to garden.   :)

So, are you ready for autumn?

    Super gorgeous as always! And I feel like I say this all the time but why can't I have your eyelashes?! SO pretty!

  2. While I'm always excited for Fall, I can relate to holding onto summer- can't believe it's nearly over! Love this look on you- the A La Mode palette was made for you! xo

  3. Thanks, Chelsea! I seemed to be having a good lash day. lol

  4. I was on the fence about the A La Mode palette in the spring, and I'm beyond glad I bought it. It has gotten a lot of use!

  5. I don't love the heat, so I guess I'm ready for autumn? But I also hate snow. And winter comes next. What to do?!

  6. If we have another polar vortex winter I'm moving to Arizona. Which might be a problem because my husband hates the heat and sun with a passion.
