Fall is here for good, with its beautiful colors, leaves turning colors trees, smell of pumpkin, nutmeg and apples. Fall is my absolute favorite season. I love colder weather, wearing cozy sweaters and boots and snuggling at home with a cup of warm apple cider. I also love deeper makeup shades that appear in autumn makeup collections.
In today’s post I am bringing you my five favorite beauty fall products, encouraging you to share yours with me as well.
This pick was the hardest for me because there are so many eyeshadows that I love using for fall- from rich golds, to burnt oranges and deep chocolate browns. My favorite one though comes from Inglot, a shade number 452. It’s a deep burgundy brownish-red shade with a pearl finish. It’s similar to Mac Cosmetics’ cult favorite shade in Cranberry. The quality of the eyeshadow is great, it applies really smoothly and lasts on me all day used with an eyeshadow primer. I love combining it with gold shades.
In fall I still use a lot of pink blushes but I usually lay off my coral ones replacing them with deeper tones. My top pick comes from Mac Cosmetics and it’s a powder blush in Small Vanity. It’s a dusty mauve-rose color with a hint of redness. In the pan the blush appears a bit shimmery but it doesn’t contain any glitter and on the skin it provides a subtle sheen. It can also be easily built up if you are a fan of more defined look.
Fall lipsticks are something I am absolutely obsessed with. I love deeper wine, plum and berry lipstick shades that always look elegant even with a simple eye look. My favorite one is again from Mac Cosmetics and it’s a lipstick from their LE Divine Night collection that launched last year. It’s a shade called Private Party which is described as a “dirty plum mauve”. It has a satin finish so it’s very creamy and it applies very smoothly, providing an excellent coverage without emphasizing any dryness of the lips.
Being a nail polish junkie this wasn’t an easy choice for me either. However, after much consideration I decided to go with a Zoya nail polish in Pepper. I think it’s best described as a brick red shade with a cream finish. Depending on the light, it might look a bit brown. I think it perfectly embodies my favorite fall shade and it looks very elegant on the nails. Like with all Zoya nail polishes, this shade applies beautifully, providing full opaqueness with two coats.
Unlike all the other products mentioned in this post, my pick for this category is a fairly new purchase for me but it was love at first use. It’s a 3-in-1 smoothie from Ulta in Pumpkin Latte. It can be used as a shower gel, shampoo or a bubble bath. To be honest, I am a little skeptical about using it as a shampoo but I absolutely adore it as a shower gel. I love the smell of everything pumpkin and that’s probably the main reason why I love this product so much. It’s not too strong but you can definitely smell the pumpkin and all the spices and it does smell so good that I almost want to eat it. The smoothie foams well, leaving my skin very smooth and the scent lingers on my skin for a few hours after use. The bottle is pretty big as it contains 16 oz of product so it will definitely last me all season. The smoothie can be complimented with other two products from the same line, a scrub and a body butter. It retails for $12 but I actually bought it during a B1G1 sale so I also got the scrub for free, which makes it a great deal.
Here are my five fall beauty favorites. Now it’s your turn! I’d love to hear about your autumn picks.
