Fall and round up the best Autumn beauty
T-minus a few hours and we are officially into Autumn. Grab your pumpkin spiced everything and start transitioning your beauty routine. Seasons dictate what is most appropriate for our skin, hair and make up.
Skincare: Beauty starts from within. Zea Skin Solutions has you covered with their Clear Skin Daily Suplement ($75). A summer spent in the sun, slathering on sun screen ultimately leaves skin needing recovery. Within 30 days skin's redness and blotchiness is reduced. Even out from the inside out. It is all about detoxifying, so YesTo Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser ($10) helps to remove dirt and grime that build up on skin. It is necessary to follow up cleansing with moisture locking products. Tu'el Hydrate Super Serum ($48) does just that. Why would they lie with a name like that? It penetrates deep into skin to support collagen and elastin production. No7 Restore & Renew Face & Neck Multi Action Serum ($34) helps skin to bounce back and keep looking young. Tired eyes will give away everything, so keep that at bay with Baiser Third Eye Roll-On ($65). It is organic, depuffs, and revitalizes eyes. As the weather gets brisker, it only means you need to maintain or up your moisturizing game. Depending on your skin's needs, find the moisturizer that will keep skin clear, but hydrated. For more sensitive skin Kneipp's Light-Weight Lotion ($25) will nourish skin, without irritation. For dryer skin, Palmers Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer ($10) will give skin that deep moisturization it craves. In addition to your daily routine, it is important to add a weekly mask to keep skin radiant. The Juara Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask ($38) refines and minimizes pores and brighten and even out complexion. Take it to the extreme and fancify your mask. Who says your mask can't both benefit your skin and look fabulous at the same time. Starskin recognizes that. Their Lace Masks ($15) take you to your very own masquarade ball while plumping or revamping skin.
Body: What works for your face is what works for your body. It all starts with moisturizing. Dove is a go to brand for everything moisturizing. Their Deep Moisture Body Wash ($6) is silky smooth and helps to deliver that nourishment every single shower. After showering, it is essential to keep it up with moisturizing with a lotion or body cream. Le Petit Marseillais brings the South of France to your bathroom. Their Nourishing Lotions ($6) gives you a full day of hydration. Their Body Balms ($7) are best for extremely dry skin, such as elbows, hands and knees. Wearing sandals day in and day out leave feet looking worse for the wear. At night, help repair your feet with Amlactin Foot Repair Cream ($10). Apply and put on a clean sock to help smooth dry callused feed.
Make Up: Trends in make up this fall are extreme. Its either achieving that make-up free look or full on glam. Regardless, you want to even out skin with a tinted moisturizer. City Light ($15) from No7 is formulated to help protect skin from every day stresses. Set it with a loose powder such as Maybelline's Fit Me ($8). It can also be worn solo for light, mattifying coverage. Keep that natural summer tan with Perricone MD's No Bronzer Bronzer ($31). While nourishing skin, it also keeps that summer glow lasting into sweater weather. Help your natural lashes fill in with vegaLash Volumizing Mascara ($32). The vegan formula works to boost lashes. Keeping it natural still is Sassy Lips Color Changing Lipstick ($25) changes color according to the temperature of your body and looks uniquely perfect for you. Stowaway cosmetics lets you maintain that natural look on the go and while traveling. The products are pint sized so they are easy to tote around or pack for vacations. The entire line is made up of rich products, ranging around $13, that are great for your natural look such as lipsticks and mascaras.
When looking to pump up the volume there are perfect options to go bold. Nothing is more exciting than an eye shadow palette. Pop Beauty does just that. The Pop Portfolio ($26) has 36 shades for every bold look you desire. Mix it up, and try out new looks. If that is not enough, Hard Candy's Metal Glaze ($5) is a liquid foil that will make any head turn. Use it as an eye color, use it as an accent, use it how you see fit, and it will be fabulous. Who says your mascara should be your natural color? Flip the switch with Maybelline's Great Lash in Royal Blue ($6). I used to wear this all the time in High School, and recently rediscovered it and love it. Its unexpected and oh so fun. Another classic brand, Zoya is branching out from their nail polish with their bold lipsticks ($12). Jasmine and and Frankie are various deep reds that are perfect for highlighting your lip. To finish off your glam look it has to be nail art. If you go to a specialty shop, the bill will run you up. However, Impress Press On Manicure ($6) will truly impress everyone with the most professional at home nail kit.
No look is perfect without a great base. Your eyes will not pop if your eyes are dry and red. Bring relief to them with Rotho Dry Eye Relief ($13) Keep the drops in your purse you you never have to fear looking tired. So you have all seen my charcoal mask story, and know that it is all the rage (see above). It works. Use it with Curaprox Black is White Tooth paste ($30). It will whiten teeth so when you wear those bold colors, your teeth look beautiful. It helps to keep pearly whites, white.
