Fall Favorites with Adore Me + Beautycounter

With fall weather approaching, many ladies are swapping their summer go-to makeup looks for some fall favorites. Before we see drops in temperature (c'mon cooler weather in Texas!), I wanted to share how my seasonal "go to" products evolve to incorporate fall beauty trends.

I've also partnered with an adorable, New York-based lingerie company, Adore Me (whose current Head of Design, Helen Mears, is the former Head of Design at Victoria's Secret!), to pair their fan-favorite lingerie sets with some essential fall makeup looks. I'm excited to share which products from Beautycounter that I would use to create the color combinations for each of these styles.

 Adore Me

For pairing #1: Deep Berry Lips - Beautycounter's Lip Sheer in Currant or Plum - and Lip Gloss in Fig

 Beautycounter Lip Sheer Beautycounter Lip Gloss

(L-R) Beautycounter Lip Sheer in Currant & Plum and Lip Gloss in Fig

For a deep berry-colored lip look, start with the Lip Sheer in Currant, Raisin or Plum and layer together with the Lip Gloss in Fig, which goes on smoothly with no stickiness, for an extra bold color with shine (or wear the gloss alone for a light berry color)!

Beautycounter's Lip Sheers are an everyday "go to" for me, as they go on silky-smooth and have a lightweight, ultra-moisturizing, and long-lasting formula that is the perfect mix color and sheen. Plus, there's no synthetic fragrance - just a hint of vanilla!

For pairing #2: Blue Smokey Eye - Beautycounter's Winter Dream Palette
 Beautycounter - Winter Dream Palette - Holiday Exclusive
Tip: First, lightly press Bellflower (vibrant periwinkle - second color from the left) onto the eyelid and blend Marine (true navy - first color on the left) onto the upper lash line. Then, highlight inner corners of eyes and under brow with Opal (opalescent pink - third color from the left) - all from Beautycounter's new holiday Winter Dream Palette - to create a gorgeous blue smokey eye.

For pairing #3: "No Makeup Makeup" with Strong Highlight

We know that it takes multiple products to create that effortless "no makeup makeup" look!

First, apply Beautycounter's Tint Skin Foundation (apply with a foundation brush or blending sponge, for more coverage) or, for lighter coverage, Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer (can apply and blend with fingertips).

Next, using an angled brush, apply the Whisper (soft peach with a hint of pink) Blush from the Winter Warmth Palette to your cheeks, and then dab it onto your eyelids. For luminosity, dust Feather (opalescent sheen highlight), also from the Winter Warmth Palette, on the high points of cheeks, down the center of the nose and above brow bones using a powder brush.

Then, apply our best-selling Lip Sheer Lipstick in Twig and new Lip Gloss in Bare Shimmer from the Luminous Nudes Gift Set.

Finish the look with a few sweeps of Lengthening Mascara to define your lashes.

 No Makeup Makeup Look with Beautycounter

Products suggested: 1. Tint Skin Foundation or Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer | 2. Winter Warmth Palette (Eyes and Cheeks) | 3. Luminous Nudes Gift Set (Lips) | 4. Lengthening Mascara

For pairing #4: Peach Shadow - Beautycounter's Color Shade Eye Duo in Peach/Bronze

 Beautycounter Color Eye Duo - Bronze/Peach

Beautycounter's Eye Duo in Peach/Bronze will flatter all skin tones! These satiny powders contain Porcelain Flower Extract, a Thai bloom known for its antioxidant benefits, to help moisturize the delicate skin around the eyes for a flattering, luminous effect. The two complementary shades are designed to be worn together or alone.

Tip: Use the Peach shade for a soft sweep of allover color, or add the Bronze shade to the crease for a more defined look.

You can complete your beauty arsenal with more safe cosmetics and makeup products from Beautycounter. Please reach out to me directly if you have any questions or need assistance with any beauty solutions!

"Why I Style" with Stella & Dot

This week, our Home Office team at Stella & Dot asked the Stylist community to share on social media why we style. Reading everyone's posts has been so inspiring (just look up #whyistyle or #sdjoy on Instagram)!

 Why I Style: Create More Happiness - Stella & Dot

I also was inspired by another friend's story to think about "what I joined Stella & Dot for..." and "what I got instead..." were never what I imagined! When I first started this business, I was looking for a creative outlet and just wanted a way to get more of the accessories that I loved for free - or at a really deep discount (as I was not making a lot of money in my first job). Honestly, I thought people in direct sales were a little crazy, and only thought I'd do a trunk show for family and a few close friends, but never any more than that!

That quickly changed when I was battling depression in my first job after graduate school just a few years ago. I realized that this business could potentially replace my income and allow me to leave a place that made me unhappy. Six years later, I've been able to replace - and double! - the income I was making at that job, as well as take on other part-time "passion" projects that make me happy!

Stella & Dot Stylist Opportunity

Now, one of the reasons I style is to create more happiness... in my life and the lives of others! A light shined through my darkness, and it was my Stella & Dot business that made me happiest. By sharing that glimmer with others, I've helped the incredible women on my team find a creative outlet to support jewelry addiction or a business opportunity to earn extra income or grow their skillsets, developed new friendships and relationships in my community, and helped many women (and a few great men!) to find that perfect piece of jewelry to wear every day, to gift to a friend or loved one, or to be a part of a special occasion... which all generates a little more happiness each day.

If you want to do it for the fun, the extra sparkle, the travel, the guilt-free shoe shopping, to renovate your home, or because you only get 18 summers at home with your kiddos before they leave for college, in the end, you do it for you - and what makes YOU happy, and that's pretty amazing.

By now, you know I love what I do as a Stylist for Stella & Dot... and it is so much more than just selling gorgeous accessories! ;) It can be done part-time or full-time and flexibly around your busy schedule! Our October sign-on special is so good, it would be irresponsible of me not to share!

My October Stitch Fix

It's that time of the month again... my October Stitch Fix box arrived! ;) This time, I was so excited to get two of my past "keeps" in updated colors and prints.

I absolutely love the 41Hawthorn "Queensland Dolman Jersey Top" (received in a previous Fix in black) in Dark Purple and the Pixley "Ellie Printed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse" in a purple plaid print with the roll-tab sleeve (received in a previous Fix in an elephant print).

Both of these are the perfect tops for wearing casually or dressing up with jewelry!

 Stitch Fix 41Hawthorn Dolman
41Hawthorn "Queensland Dolman Jersey Top" in Dark Purple available through Stitch Fix.

 Stitch Fix Pixley Blouse
Pixley "Ellie Printed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse" in Plaid available through Stitch Fix.

Are you the girl who finds a style that you love, be it clothes or shoes, and believes you should have it in every color if it fits and makes you feel fabulous? Yes? Well, that's me, too!

What I love about Stitch Fix is that you can also request your Stylist send you something that she has sent you in a previous Fix but in a different color or print, if it is available. For the fall, I loved having colored updates to two of my favorite go-to tops!

Want your very own personal stylist to send 5 items picked just for you? Give Stitch Fix a try here: stitchfix.com/referral/3297597 You're also welcome to request me as your Stitch Fix Stylist!)

Juliette Lewis's Beautycounter Favorites - Us Weekly

Catching up on my celebrity gossip this week, and while flipping through the pages of the October 10, 2016 issue of Us Weekly magazine, I spotted a few Beautycounter favorites in Juliette Lewis's handbag!

Juliette says, "I'm not really a makeup person, except for lip gloss. I have one from Beautycounter in Peony, like the flower. It's a nontoxic makeup line."


She also had in her bag the Protect All Over Sunscreen SPF 30, which helps to protect you against both UVA and UVB rays.

Don't compromise your health and safety for beauty. To get more nontoxic, safe and better beauty products and skincare, please check out www.beautycounter.com/whitneyfields

Spread the word, and thank you for being part of the mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone.
