After a few months away from the scene, I’m ready to rejoin the masses and get back into what I set out to create in the first place. Today I’m back sharing my beauty must-haves for fall.
Fall is a funny time of year. It’s warm enough to keep the memories of summer alive but it’s chilly at the same time which readies us for cozy season and settling in for winter. It’s also a time when our skin has no idea WTF it wants or needs. This transitional period is the perfect time to start reintroducing hydration into our routines. Think nourishing hair masks and hydrating shampoos as well as thicker creams and body lotions that are too rich during the humidity.
Does your skin become reactive + red when temps cools down? Then Dermalogica’s latest godsend needs to be on your radar. Brilliant at reducing skin sensitivity almost right away, this buttery-balmy cream melts gorgeously into the skin and works to strengthen it to keep further sensitivity and irritations at bay.
‘Tis the season to swap out your lighter moisturizers and trade them in for thicker, more rich creams and Summer Fridays’ newest iteration is just the ticket. In addition to how quickly skin feels hydrated and looks glowy, this baby also delivers a plumped effect thanks to the genius combo of Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid and fruit extracts.
Gone are the days of liquid lipsticks that left lips feeling dry and looking cracked and dehydrated. Say hello to Charlotte Tilbury’s new Lip Blur that applies with incredible ease and delivers up to 24 hours of lasting hydration. Available in 8 stunning shades that are perfect for any beauty look, these beauties will be your new must-have in every bag!
After months of summer heat, pool hangs and beach days, our hair needs a freaking break! This ultra-hydrating hair mask from Amika is new to shelves and needs to be on your vanity. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, squalane and coconut water, it’s nourishing and moisturizing. Plus it leaves strands stronger and protected against future breakage.
If liquid lipsticks aren’t your thing, allow me to introduce you to U Beauty’s Plasma Lip Compound which plumps and hydrates the lips, unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Just one application will have you notice instant nourishment along with enhanced volume for an appearance of fuller lips. In addition to the incredible formula, it’s the applicator that does it for me – a metal tip feels so good on the lips! Available in an untinted formula as well as 7 stunning shades, you’ll be hooked on them in one swipe.
Wake up looking facial-fresh with this brand new serum from Fresh. Using a blend of AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) and prickly pear flower extract to even out texture and reduce dullness, this serum is literally something out of a dream!
Say hello to yet another Rare Beauty product that’s going viral. This time it’s the brand’s new Brow Harmony Flexible Lifting Gel. Weightless in texture but holds like a professional brow lamination, this gel gives brows a flexible hold all day without that crunchy feeling we’re all too familiar with.
We’ve all heard of foundations laced with skincare ingredients but this brand-new launch from Ilia has made the impossible, totally possible. This SPF-tinted serum is formulated with 2% niacinimde and 10% vitamin C and while the two typically don’t get along, the formula uses them in an encapsulated form which keeps them separated meaning they mix upon application.
