Fall Beauty Favorites

Fall Beauty Favorites

Fall is cozy and wonderful, a time of muted neutrals and warm coffee. I love the scents and colors of fall, from the outdoors to the indoors. And, of course, I love the scents and colors of fall makeup. Here are my fall beauty favorites:

Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Lip Color in Lover: I love this color for fall. It’s neutral, but instead of a peachy or pink nude, it’s more of a mauve. I like that it’s a subtle color, but it’s a little darker and cooler. Plus, the formula is amazing, long-wearing and comfortable. I want to get more colors in this line!


CK One: I adore this fragrence, which *technically* is a cologne. It was a hip and happening unisex scent in the 90s, and I love how it smells. I prefer something fresh or musky to something sweet, so I tend to gravitate towards more masculine scents anyways, especially for fall. There’s something about this scent that makes me feel cozy on a cool day. Plus, I’m all about the 90s, and this scent was a 90s icon.

Fall Beauty Favorites

Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter Stack: These eyeshadows are beautiful, buttery, and great for sensitive skin. They blend like a dream, and every single shade screams fall. Every eyeshadow in this palette is matte; there’s Blurr, a warm cream shade, Unseen, a warm brown, Unseen, a brick red-brown, and Dark Matter, the blackest of blacks. Versatile enough for a beauty guru and simple enough for a beginner, these eyeshadows are amazing. If I had to pick one palette to use every day, this would be it.

Real Techniques Bold Metals Brushes: I love these brushes. The long, sleek handles, the fluffy bristles, the price point… they’re perfect. The perfect combination of functionality and beauty.

Diorskin Forever Foundation: This foundation is so beautiful. The shade Fair Almond matches me perfectly, and the formula is just right on my acne-prone skin. My skin is normal, perhaps even a little dry, but I live in a humid climate so I get a little oily. I would say this foundation is a medium coverage, natural finish, but it’s somehow so complexion perfecting. I don’t have to set it with powder (though I usually do). It’s my favorite for any season, but something about the satin-matte finish is especially nice for autumn.
