A Dose of Beauty (Fall Edition)..

With a new season under way it's not just your wardrobe changing but your makeup bag may need an overhaul as well! The colder, drier months call for different skin needs and new Fall shades are making their appearance! So here are some of my winter necessities I use currently, and some I'm dying to try!

Bronzer- With no more beach vacations or lake trips on the horizon I'll be resorting to bronzer and self tanners to keep my skin looking sun-kissed!
For the face:
Smashbox Bronze Lights
Bare Minerals Faux Tan

Eyes-Typically during summer I'm all about the fresh-faced look which means I hardly ever wear eye shadow but come the holiday seasons I'm always looking for something to give my eyes a lil more wow factor! I'm a big fan of these shades for Fall/Winter.
Smashbox Photo Op Eye Enhancing Palette-these are designed specific to your eye color
NARS- Two are my faves include...

Lips- Like my eyes, I prefer a lil more color this time of the year and I'm a big fan of berry shades!
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment-Berry

Nails-Nail polish is one of my favorite ways to showcase Fall color trends!

metallic olive old

lacy not racy

opaque midnight navy

Moisturizer- I don't typically have problems with dry skin on my face but my hands really suffer in the winter!
Philosophy Hand of Hope
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion

So tell me, do you ladies have any favorite products you swap out for the changing seasons? Have you tried any of these? And what Fall makeup trends are you loving? Do tell!

  1. I love going darker with my makeup/nails during the fall and winter months. I'm still trying to talk myself into burgundy lips. Love 'em, but I'm nervous!

    The Glossy Life

    1. I feel the same way! I love it on other people but I'm not sure if I can pull it off.

  2. Sally Hanson air brush legs is the best..just used it today!

    1. During the winter my legs do not see the light without it! ha.. It's awesome!
