Fall will be officially here in a few days and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for the change in weather (hopefully) and attire.  With all the changes in the air, we tend to forget about changing up our makeup routine.  This is the time of year for berries and browns when it comes to beauty products. While I love a nice burgundy it doesn’t always go with my day-to-day, so I thought I’d share some of my favorite neutrals to help you through the sea of fall colors that are out there.  

First things first, with every outfit you must have a good lipstick or gloss to compliment your look.  I am a huge bareMinerals fan and I absolutely love there Gen Nude Matte Collection.  There are so many beautiful shades but moving towards fall I tend to go with Icon.  It is a great neutral pinkish shade with bits of brown that make it less springy… I am also currently loving the Urban Decay Vice line.  My personal fave for fall is called Vanished.  It has a bit of a matte rose gold look to it and it’s super creamy.  I also love M.A.C. in Stone this is a little on the darker side.  It looks great on mostly brunettes but if you have a platinum blonde, white, or light gray hue, I think you could rock this color too.

Next up let’s talk about nail polish!  I love that nail polish has totally come back in a big way.  I remember for years it seemed like everything had to be a french manicure or Bubble Bath pink, but with all the great colors out these days you can’t help but take advantage of them.  I have my colors that I look forward to every season and I want to share with you some that I have either tried or want to try this fall.  Rose gold is trending and it took me a while to find the right one.  My go-to on this hue is Penny Talk by Essie.  Looks great and not too pink.  I am currently on the lookout for Modern Love by Deborah Lippman.  I love this velvety pinkish brown color and I think it will go well with some of the sweaters I’ve bought.  The next color is a deep dark chocolate brown by Dolce Gabbana called Chocolate 55 that I think is amazing. This is such a great color for fall and it almost seems black but not too harsh.

Last but not least, have you guys seen the Urban Decay Heat palette?  Omg, this is amazing!  I am all about some Urban Decay palettes but this one totally gets the fall mood I’m in and I love all the shades that comes with it!  This palette will get you through all of your fall and winter soirees hands down, no problem!  Also, with the array of colors, you can totally get that smokey eye look!

The best is yet to come!  You can get all of these new shades for fall at Nordstrom just don’t wait too long! I’m sure many others just like you will want to join in on all the fall fun and will be looking their best in these fall beauty essentials!

I hope you liked my little fall beauty round-up!  Please feel free to comment your thoughts on any of these products I’ve mentioned and as always thanks for reading!


Cheers- Ashley Nicole

  • Lately, I’ve been feeling like I’ve been so disconnected... I’ve been healing and I apologize that I’ve not been as lively over here, but I’ve been dealing with my own dilemmas. I’ve had two accounts of death from cancer just recently. One I kind of set myself up for because I knew there was no cure and another that was totally unexpected... it’s been a rough ride, but I’m still here and I’m happy and thankful that I can be there for others during these hard times. If you are dealing with anything like this feel free to reach out to me. I would love to help support you and always sending love and light your way! .

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
