    Flower Child Cosmetics

    My beauty bag bring-along to amplify my light-brown eyes and harmonize with fall-deserving floral crowns this month is Maybelline’s Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner ($9.99). The waterproof, oil-free formula helps to achieve piercing prettiness simply by adding the product to the liner brush and gliding it across the lash from the inner to outer corners. Flick the wrist for cat-eye cuteness, and you’re ready for no holds barred backwoods fun.
