Ok I'm just going to jump into it - I am completely obsessed with Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. When it comes to eyelashes, size does matter! My instagram friend, @TrishasLusciousLashes sent me some to try earlier this week and its aahhhh-mazing!

I have tried just about everything on the market from drug store brands, to high end designer mascara, to fake lashes and I can honestly say Younique really nailed it. I naturally have very long lashes, but over the last couple years they seem to have lost a bit of their legnth. I knew it wasn't my imagination because people always used to say, "wow! Your eyelashes are so long! Are they real?" and lately... not so much. It was kind of depressing! Trying 3D Fiber Lashes this week alone has seriously changed my life. The picture speaks for itself! PS - the picture on the left with WITH Clinique mascara already on! I mean. HELLO.

Application Tips:

-Be careful not to get the transformative gel on your eyelids because its difficult to get off (even with a q-tip) without ruining your eye makeup.

-Have a lash comb handy to get rid of any clumps

-Use a really good eye make up remover and plenty of it. Lashes by Lena sent me one that works really well but its a little harsh if you get it in your eyes.

The proof is in the pudding - so try it for yourself! Then tell me what you think below - I love reading your comments!

We are falling in love with the beauty trends this autumn! Here are some beauty trends we expect to see much more of in the coming months:

1. Honey Blonde Hair Color. With supermodels like Aline Webber and Sasha Luss trading their platinum locks for a richer, more natural honey blonde, we predict this hair trend to only get bigger this season. The color itself is simply breathtaking. We've been touting two of the top trends (see above) since this summer at Southern Exposure. Honey blonde and.....

2. Sombre hair. By now, you know the ombre hair trend like the back of your hand. Dark on top, light on the bottom. Everyone from A listers to the girl next door came, saw, and conquered the look that took over the summer. There has been a major shift in the ombre direction as of late. Meet sombre, ombre's soft and subtle fraternal twin sister. Hence the name sombre. We're loving this blended update on a hair trend that we knew would eventually reach its longest length.

3. Burgundy Lips. Old Hollywood glamour just got a modern update. Vavavoom lips and coy cat eyes is guaranteed to turn heads! And talk about easy to achieve! To get the look, stick to a natural eyeshadow and play up the cat eyes with Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner. You'll definitely want to use a brow pencil to fill in any uneven areas and create the pronounced brow look. We used Brow Wiz by Anastasia Beverly Hills. Get bold lips with Shame from Urban Decay.

4. Sleek Nail Art. Just when you thought nail art was a thing of the past, it made a major appearance at fashion shows this season. But much like the ombre, nail art is taking a more subtle and refined approach. Think sleek designs, dots, stripes and geometrical shapes. Check out what Refinery29 had to say about it! Get the look with Incognito in Sausalito by OPI and Sassy and Chic Nail Art Pen.

And there you have it, Beauties. What are some of your favorite fall styles?

Hello Beauties! It's officially fall and even though I'm in LA where the sun keeps shining well into September and October, I am welcoming the oh-so-comfy, creamy sweater back into my wardrobe with open arms. I'm loving the black graphic touch to break up the different shades of tan and cream on my Charlotte Russe garb.

On Sundays I like to keep the beauty routine as clean and simple as possible. Hair is slicked back with two fishtail braids and make up is mostly MAC and Benefit. I love contouring with the Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm and Mineralize Concealer. A few dabs under the cheeckbone, nose and under the chin and voila! Its a simple trick that does wonders!

Now its time to enjoy Sunday Funday! Hope you're having as much fun as we are! xoxo
