Fall has hit my makeup kit and I could not be more in love with this season’s trends. My oft-understated look has gained a bit of oomph thanks to trends like beautiful bordeaux lips and shades of green for the eyelids (I’m crazy for a glittery moss green). To balance out all of the color, I’m keeping cheeks soft and sweet with just a wash of light pink and finishing things off with a constant rotation of metallic jewel tones on my nails.
Get the look: Clinique Black Honey Lip Duo
, $21, available at Sephora; Guerlain Rose Aux Joues
in Chic Pink, $50, available at Sephora; Urban Decay Eyeshadow
in Mildew, $18, available at Sephora; Sephora+Pantone Universe Jewel Lacquer
in Reflecting Pond, $9, available at Sephora
Here are a handful of other top performers who have risen above the masses of beauty products currently in The Glossarie test kitchen and landed a spot in my daily beauty basket:
Clinique Chubby Stick
in Voluptuous Violet ($16) – A juicy grape with lots of moisture and just the right amount of shine. Sephora Instant Moisturizer
($20) – Intense, but oil free and it leaves my skin so touchably soft. bareMinerals READY Foundation SPF20
($29) and Precision Face Brush
($28) – Beautiful coverage and not at all drying. Touch the brush to the pressed powder to pick up just enough – the soft, densely packed bristles help it to go on like a dream! Redken Sheer Straight Gel
($18) – Lightweight, but gets my hair pin straight. Excellent for whipping things into shape for the season’s sleek pony. MAC Eye Shadow
in All That Glitters ($18) – A great base for winged eyeliner or a cat eye. Dr. Hauschka Lip Care Stick
($13.95) – Apply it once and you’re done! Soothes and seals in moisture. Tokyo Milk Gin & Rosewater
($30) – The most amazing pairing of zesty citrus and classic rosewood. Sophisticated and unexpected.
What’s new in your beauty bag this fall?
