New Beauty Favorites for Fall

Right before I left for California I decided to upgrade my makeup situation. In the summer I try to get away with as little makeup as possible but now that the weather is cooling down (and my tan starts to fade away) it is time to step it up. With the holidays around the corner I like to have a little more fun with my fall beauty routine and I’ve found a few new favorites that you should add to your rotation, too!

I’ve never found a foundation that I’ve loved. I usually gravitate towards a tinted moisturizer but the reality is that it just doesn’t cut it when the weather is cold. My ideal foundation is lightweight, gives even coverage and doesn’t feel cakey/heavy. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (I use color 4) has been the answer to my foundation dreams! I’m obsessed (and that says a lot from someone who doesn’t like foundation). I pair it with bareMinerals Prime Time Primer which helps my makeup stay on all day long. I never realized the importance of a good primer until now!

Blush is one of those items that I have to have in my routine. It brings so much life into your face, especially in the winter months. I rotate between NARS Orgasm blush and Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic. To give my skin a natural glow I’ve been obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury’s Bar of Gold Highlighting Palette. I apply a little to my cheekbones, down the center of my nose, and the top of my upper lip and where my part meets my forehead. I’ve even been using them as an eyeshadow!

I always get asked about my hair and I’ve detailed my favorite products before but I swear I stock up on Living Proof Perfect Hair Day dry shampoo and Volume Blast every other month. I use both products almost every single day! Mixed with my T3 Micro curling wand and Dyson Hairdryer. I used to be the girl who thought spending money on expensive hair accessories was absolutely ridiculous. After a long talk with my hairstylist I realized that my hair was actually getting very damaged by the cheap products I was using and had to upgrade.
