Anyone else excited that the season of dark lips, over-the-knee boots, and leather jackets is finally here?! Even though I could probably live in a bikini forever, there’s something that makes fall/ winter style and beauty extra intriguing. Cozy up with these 7 beauty products you absolutely need to be pairing with your killer outfits this season!
1. Magic Balm, $18, honestbeauty.com
Dewy. Yummy. Freshy. Take advice from the queen of gorj herself, Founder of Honest Beauty Jessica Alba, who suggests dabbing this balm anywhere from the cheekbones to highlight, your split ends to smooth, or your cuticles to polish. My favorite magic trick? Dab a bit on your cupid’s bow for an effortlessly full and luscious top lip! Smooch smooch.
2. Ardell’s Brow Pomade, $8.49, ardelllashes.com
It took me some time, but I finally found the perfect all-in-one brow tool I needed! This double-sided brush and pomade combo makes it easy to shape, fill, and set brows on the go. Use the angle-tipped side to smooth the lightweight gel on, and then blend with the combed side of the brush to thicken and mold the brow exactly how you like it. Attain the perfect feathery brow by stroking upwards at the start, and outward as you continue through the brow.
3. NARS Eye Paint, $25, narscosmetics.com
Use this highly pigmented pot to line or shade for the perfect GNO or date night. Its deep navy shade is bold and sexy, while the added shimmer is the perfect flirty touch.
4. “Faux” Lipstick with “Whirl” Lipliner, $17, maccosmetics.com
As the reigning lipstick brand, MAC’s “Faux” is the ultimate muted-for-fall pink. The satin mauve finish is subtle, and when it’s paired with “Whirl” liner’s dirty rose hue, the two colors will give you the perfect combination of soft but tough.
5. “Aruba” Illuminating Bronzing Powder, $40, bobbibrowncostmetics.com
This smooth pressed powder gives a natural glow, and is available in six different shades. For the fall, (when we are all a bit on the pale side-yikes), use a tone like “Aruba” that you can bronze up or down. Sweep on the apples of your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin to give a soft glow when your face hits the sunlight.
6. Dolce and Gabbana “Peacock” Nail Lacquer, $27, dolceandgabbana.com
Get the perfect fall mani with this color-rich, glossy shade of peacock blue. As sad as I am to see Marsala go, I’m realizing I’d be completely ok with Peacock as Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2016;)
7. PCA ReBalance, $36, pcaskin.com
I’ve been using the PCA skincare line for over a year now, and this is one of the essentials from the product line. Curated for all skin types, this hydrating formula keeps skin calm and balanced in texture and in color. It’s my savior when the weather changes, helping my skin to combat the cold climates and bitter breezes that come with autumn and winter!
