This time of year I generally focus on stocking up on skin care instead of makeup. Once the weather changes, I find that my skin needs a little extra TLC and it seems to shift every year whether or not that means oil control or ultra hydration! Of course, I’m also always suckered in by the fabulous holiday sets and lines that come out this time of year. Right now, I’m loving some of the products that came out in the nutcracker sets by MAC. Here are a few things I’m into this fall….
5 of My Fall Favorites
1 – This foundation has become my go to. Normally I’m an Armani Luminous Silk gal, but this new hourglass has the same blend-ability but much more of a fall, satin or velvet finish. It’s just the kind of coverage you want going into winter.
2 – The bite lip mask is an essential for me in fall. I put it on at night and wake up with smooth, plump lips that can handle all of those dark matte shades we’re into this time of year!
3- Amore Pacific is one of the best skin care lines out there and I don’t think they get quite as much play as they deserve. I’m obsessed with this aging serum, but you’ll also love their hydrating spray (an airplane essential for me!) and their cleanser for a deep clean that doesn’t strip your face of key oils it needs in the winter!
4- This is one of those fab MAC products I’m loving! The nutcracker collection MAC put out has a bunch of fun colors and great pallets. If you happen to live in a neck of the woods where the whisper of gilt/blush combo isn’t sold out buy a hundred. (And maybe sell a few on eBay and finance your student loan payments.)
5- This “mask” has been a welcome addition to my Sunday beauty routine. Its texture is a little different, almost goopy and it certainly doesn’t harden like a traditional mask. That said, it is immensely restorative and feels like something your facialist keeps up her sleeve when you ask for “brightening.” It marries well with another hydrating treatment to follow it’s somewhat astringent finish.
