It’s starting to feel like fall ya’ll… at least finally down here in SoCal. Well, for a couple days at least. I may not be wrapped up in scarves and sweaters like the rest of the country, but I do like to change up my beauty routine to incorporate warmer shades and scents during the fall season. Here’s a few of my current fall beauty favorites:
I picked up the Morphe25B Bronzed Mocha Eyeshadow Palette a couple months ago while attending PHAME (a huge makeup expo!) at a super discount and have been loving it for fall– I dip into it almost every day. This under-$20 eyeshadow palette features a mix of 25 warm mocha, bronze and burgundy shades (including some stellar shimmers!). All the shades are highly-pigmented and easy to blend. It truly is a perfect fall palette and the best news? You can now shop Morphe, including this palette, at Ulta Beauty!
One of my top tips for fragrance shopping is to purchase the rollerball version if you’re on the fence about a scent. The mini sample sizes or the spray on sticks usually don’t cut it and you don’t always get a true representation of a fragrance. Rollerballs tend to be affordable, plus they’re great for traveling or throwing in your handbag. I recently purchased the Chloé Roses de Chloé Rollerball and after using it for the past few weeks, I’m totally putting the full-size on my Christmas wishlist (nudge nudge Steve!). It has a soft, feminine rose scent- totally like a fresh bouquet of roses- but with base notes of musk and amber giving it the perfect depth for fall.
I’ve been trying to take my lip game up a notch and have been reaching for darker, bolder hues this season. One that I’m LOVING is the Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick in Mood, a deep, muted plum shade. Being a liquid lipstick, it is highly pigmented and long-wearing, although I do have to touch up after eating or drinking from a cup. I have dry lips so matte shades don’t always look the best but this liquid lipstick is very creamy and doesn’t dry super matte. It’s a fun shade to wear and I ended up getting a few compliments while wearing it!
Beauty isn’t just about what we apply on the outside, but how we take care of ourselves inside as well. I started noticing that my nails weren’t as strong as they were and my hair was looking more dry and meh so I began taking Spring Valley Hair, Skin & Nails Plus Biotin Capsules. These supplements contain biotin, argan oil, collagen and hyaluronic acid to promote healthier skin, hair and nails. I have noticed that my nails feel stronger, my hair has been growing and looking healthier and my skin has been clear and glowing since starting to take them.
