Now that the weather has finally taken a turn for the cooler, my daily makeup routine is getting a bit of a shake-up! Plum lips, porcelain skin and glowy cheeks are kind of my jam this time of year, and recently I pulled out a few favorites, new and old, that will see me well through the ret of the autumn season. Here are the products I'm currently loving --
- Chanel's Perfection Lumiere is my perfect base for when I'm wanting more of a full-coverage look. Since most of the time during the spring and summer months I can be found wearing a BB cream (this one is my favorite!), I tend to use a heavier base during the cooler months. This one is buildable and has the loveliest finish. It may be a bit pricey, but a bottle of this lasts me ages and is a little luxury that I love.
- The Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick and Pencil in the shade Koko K has been my favorite "your lips but better" shade as of a recent. I had never been much of a liquid lipstick gal until I tried this formula, and now I'm completely hooked. I love the combo of the lipstick + pencil, which makes it so easy to create a clean line and blend the color together easily on my lips. I also love that I don't have to worry about it moving all over the place throughout the day, and that I can comfortable drink my morning coffee and my have my breakfast while wearing it. While this is more of an everyday kind of color, I'm also love the Lip Kit combo in the shade Mary Jo K -- a perfect matte red.
- Glossier's Stretch Concealer is the most recent addition to my makeup bag! After reading so many great reviews online, I opted to finally give it a whirl myself. I get very dark circles (when I stressed or not getting enough sleep), so a full-coverage, long-lasting concealer is a must in my book -- I just don't have time for creasing under eyes (but who does, really?). This one held up to the hype and offers full-coverage, a creamy consistency and had minimal creasing (best if paired with a setting powder). The packaging is pretty too, and you know anything Emily Weiss does is bound to be great.
- MAC's Plumful Lipstick has been a staple in my autumn makeup routine for years now! I first heard of this shade from Estee Lalonde back in the day, and have been grabbing for it every fall season since. It's of those lipsticks that you really don't have to worry about (it wears off so nicely), and its the perfect hue for any autumn outfit you may pair it with.
Ok, I have something to admit -- I didn't want to buy into the hype that's the Becca Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector, but after seeing this face palette I was sold! Becca products had already been high on my beauty love list, but I love even more the convenience of having five of their products all wrapped up into one space. This palette may be hard to get of hold now (it came out a few moths ago), but Becca has a blusher and highlight duo and a new blush palette that would make the perfect holiday gift.
Ok - your turn to spill the beans! What's in your autumn makeup bag? What's your favorite product right now? Favorite lipstick?
