I always look forward to mixing up my makeup routine around this time of year. The other day I found myself going through my makeup drawer and picking out a few new products to keep on rotation. Here are some favorites I’m loving for fall…
GLITTERY SHADOWS + SMOKEY EYES
Something that seems to be big this season is glitter! Glitter shadows and metallic liners are popping up on models in every magazine and website lately. The look may be a bit daring for some, especially for everyday wear, but there are definitely ways to tone it down and make it wearable for everyone. I usually gravitate toward matte shadows in classic browns and beiges (you won’t see any metallic stars on the corners of my eyes), but I’ve using Benefit’s World Famous Neutrals palette more lately. They have a newer version of the palette here, which looks pretty similar.
When colder weather makes an appearance, so do darker berry hues. I love a bold lip in the fall/winter seasons. A few of my favorites shades are: (from top to bottom in photo) “Capricious” by MAC (that’s what I’m wearing in these photos – it has buildable color), “Lolita” by Kat Von D, Damned by NARS, “Outlaw” by Kat Von D (the perfect red!), “Touch of Berry” by e.l.f.
No matter the season, Dior’s Black Out Mascara never fails me for dark and full lashes. I started using it several years ago by my mother’s recommendation. I was at the mall with a friend when my mom sent me a text and asked me to pick it up for her. She heard great things and wanted to try it out, so I picked up one for each of us and haven’t used another mascara since.
e.l.f Studio Eyeliner and Shadow Stick: I’ve been using this in the dark brown shade. It gives a soft smokey look vs a harder line.
Vanity Planet Makeup Brush Kit: I’ve been loving this brush kit lately. It has everything from brow and shadow brushes to big blush and powder brushes. Plus, it came with a cute travel case too! Use code “BEAUTY22” here for 70% off the set (only $30).
Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation: Okay, this isn’t a seasonal favorite…more like an all-time favorite, but I figured it was worth mentioning. This is another product I’ve been using for the last several years and haven’t found a foundation that beats it. From the humidity in NY to triple digit temperatures in AZ, this formula lasts all day!
What are some of your favorite looks for fall? Do you change up your makeup with the seasons?
