Apologies that I haven’t been as active on here lately as I’d hoped to be! I’ve been suuuper busy with my other blog, but I do have some fun posts in the works for Love, Krista – including a giveaway!
Today I want to share some of my Fall/Autumn beauty faves with you. Fall has well and truly arrived where I live in Canada, and I’m LOVING it. I also recently had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte ever (I know – who am I?) and I maaay be slightly obsessed.
Bring on Fall and all it’s #Basic -ness!
Four Fall Beauty Faves to Try This Season
#1. Essie Bahama Mama
First up, a nail polish. In fact, the ONLY nail polish that’s been on my nails for the past month – no joke. I even ran out last week to buy a new bottle when the old one started getting gloopy. I love it that much. It’s the perfect purple/burgundy/berry shade for fall time, plus the formula is super creamy and opaque. I have a feeling this will be the only polish that’s on my fingers (and toes) from now until Christmas time!
#2. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
When the cold weather starts creeping in, it feels so much more appropriate to pull out the full-coverage foundation. And let me tell you, Double Wear is FULL coverage. Not a blemish or dark circle in sight! I’m also into a matte look in the Fall time (vs. summer when I’m all about the glow), and Double Wear is flawless matte perfection.
#3. Clinique Chubby Stick in Curviest Caramel
I am a bit lippy-obsessed, I’ll admit. I think more than half of my makeup collection is made up of lipsticks, stains, and glosses. But I digress.
Curviest Caramel is one of the only deeper (ish) lip shades I’ve EVER found that goes super well with my skin tone. My skin is super weird in that it’s not really warm OR cool-toned, but just this weird in-between pale shade. Thus, lippies that are too warm or too cool always tend to look off on me. But Curviest Caramel – it just works.
I think it would work well on most skin tones, AND it’s super duper comfy on the lips. It’s the perfect chuck-in-your-bag-and-go lippy. It’s pretty much all I’ve been wearing!
#4. Weleda Soothing Almond Facial Oil
I have an entire Weleda post coming your way soon, but this is one product from their line that really stood out to me. When Fall rolls around, my skin immediately becomes dehydrated – which leads to irritation and breakouts. Thankfully this delicious oil from Weleda swooped in to save the day!
I’ve been enjoying massaging this oil into my skin each night along with my evening moisturizer, for the perfect pre-bed treat. It’s pretty dense for a facial oil, but I never feel like my skin is greasy or TOO moisturized when I wake up the next morning. Plus I love the subtle sweet and nutty scent. Mmmm…
Let me know what I should try out next!
