It’s time to welcome in a new season with fresh fall colors and a sultry post-summer look. I’ve picked out my favorite fall eye colors, lip shades, and foundations to help my clients craft a look suitable for this colorful, cozy season.
Fall foundations bring a fresh, even skin tone all over. I recommend using Kevyn Aucoin’s The Sensual Skin Fluid Foundation, available in 8 shades, for just $65. Its weightless, serum-like formula has an amazing “no makeup” feel. It provides long-wear coverage for 6-8 hours, and glides on to provide smooth looking skin.
Best of all, it’s oil-free, water-free, powder-free, paraben-free, and nano-ingredient free. So all this luscious, ultra-lightweight serum foundation is doing is providing luminous, anti-aging coverage—not clogging your skin.
Fall is a great time to go smoky and bold when it comes to your eyes. For gals on the go, NARS offers a fabulous travel set trio for $59.00: the NARSissist Smokey Eye Compact. Three gorgeous, easy-to-wear colors seem to suit everyone and pair perfectly with Dior’s new Fall Look Collection mascara.
I also adore Kevyn Aucoin’s Eyeshadow Duo Color Extension ($42). It’s two eye shadows in one gold compact. Cool Tan and Ruddy Earth make a beautiful fall pairing. The silky powder formula features two shades of pigments that glide on smoothly and effortlessly. It’s just so easy to blend and is perfect for the season!
As we know, Dior has always been great when it comes to lashes. And now, Dior does it again! Dior’s new Instant Oversize Volume Mascara in Brown Extase ($28.50) is one of my favorites and makes your lashes look fabulous. It can be hard to find a good brown mascara, but this gem is a true rich chocolate brown that makes for a natural work look or smoky eye.
Finally, to finish your fall eye look off with a bang, apply Hourglass Mechanical Gel Liner in Obsidian ($16). This liner creates a dramatic look that is effortless to apply. The Gel Liner is ultra-thin, waterproof, and applies like a dream without pulling the skin or bleeding. It’s the perfect product to create a tight lash line or a sultry, thick, smooth line for nights out on the town.
If you pick only one new lip colors to toss in your bag, pick this one. If you’re not a lipstick girl, try Kevyn Aucoin’s The Lip Gloss in Bloodroses ($30). Bloodroses, as everyone knows, is such an iconic part of Kevyn’s line for a classic vampy lip. Perfect for girls that don’t want lipstick but prefer gloss, the color is now part of The Lip Gloss collection. With a formula that is not sticky but still conditioning, this gloss is sheer enough that it works with all skin tones, day or night.
