We have been SWOONING over the latest fall trends. Metallic eyes, berry lips and full brows – we are up for literally all of it.
Here are our top beauty picks for the season that are trendy, cult classics and frankly speaking, beauty products that you could use all year long too.
Stila has seriously outdone themselves with their magnificent metals glitter shadows. It was one of the best beauty launches of the year and everyone has been raving about it nonstop and rightly so.
Though we love all the shades, our particular favorite for the season is this Rose Gold Retro shade which is a gorgeous rose gold color with silver sparkle. Use alone as an eye shadow all over the lid, or as a liner over or under the lids or as a halo for your eye makeup look, the color works beautifully with everything.
We were absolute fans of the original smashbox Be Legendary lipsticks and the newer Always On matte liquid lipsticks, but smashbox blew us over with the Be Legendary liquid lips in metallics too!
Our favorite for the season? Be Legendary Liquid Lip Metal in Foiled Brat. It’s burgundy AND it’s metallic. Could it be more perfect?
Under eye colored liners are a major trend this season. They are easy to do and if you are looking for glam with minimal effort, swipe a bright color on and you are good to go.
A fall appropriate and our personal favorite is the Smashbox – Always On Gel Eye Liner Baller. It’s a beautiful deep teal blue color with a satin finish. It glides on smoothly and makes your eyes pop without too much effort.
We absolutely love Stila as a brand and for good reason. Their liquid lips, their metallic liquid glitters and convertible blushes are all our favorites.
For the Fall season, we prefer the stila – Convertible Color Dual Lip and Cheek Palette Sunset Serenade. It has 5 Fall appropriate blush shades that can double up as lip creams too. The formula is a smooth crème one which makes it perfect for the dry season for it’s texture, it’s petal soft finish and it’s glow-from-within pigmentation. The shades include:
- Petunia (coral pink)
- Peach Blossom (coral peach)
- Gerbera (peach cream)
- Camellia (peach caramel)
- Twilight Rose (warm marsala)
Feathered lips do not look flattering. A liner that contours, helps your lips look fuller and can be used as a lip color is a must have in our books.
With a semi matte finish, this lip liner from Stila, is a delectable berry color that also happens to be one of the IT colors for this Fall. Use it with your favorite wine colored lipstick or alone to fill your lips, it’s perfectly apt for both.
Use a midnight blue nail color like Deborah Lippmann – Rolling In The Deep Nail Lacquer as your go to nail color this season. To make it a little more fun or for a weekend night out, line the tip of your blue nail with a glittery color like Deborah Lippmann – Stronger Nail Lacquer.
Drier months wreak havoc on the skin. Anyone’s gorgeous, glowing summer skin turns to a lackluster, flaky mess as the season changes.
Our ultimate solution to get the glow back instantly? PETER THOMAS ROTH – Pumpkin Enzyme Mask.
It’s a powerful and highly effective exfoliating treatment addresses a dull, aging, and congested complexion in three ways: exfoliates with Pumpkin Enzyme, peels with Alpha Hydroxy Acid, and polishes with Aluminum Oxide.
Cleansing oils are sufficient for summer months to remove your makeup. For drier months, you not only need to wipe your face clean of makeup, impurities and dirt but also, need to inject back in a tonne of moisture.
So instead of using your regular face washes (The Best Face Wash for Your Skin Type), opt for a thick, moisturizing, luxurious cleansing balm like EVE LOM – Cleanser to remove your makeup this season. It makes for a perfect gift for the Christmas season too in the shape of EVE LOM – Cleanser Bauble Ornament.
Continuing with the glow goals, Pixi – Glow Mist is yet another Fall essential.
Known for their iconic glow tonic, Pixi has extended the range to introduce this Glow Mist too. It can be used alone as a skin care product to hydrate, protect and nourish or after makeup to set it and add a dewy finish to it.
ADD TO BAG
Lip balms are an essential during the Fall and Winter seasons. To avoid them from looking, well, boring, we searched for a product that had an added bonus of a latest Fall trend: lacquered lips.
GLAMGLOW – Poutmud Wet Lip Balm Treatment has a slightly wet – NOT greasy, oily – finish which makes it perfect not only as a lip treatment during the cold seasons but as a top coat for your Fall lipsticks too.
