Fall Beauty: What to try now
When it comes to makeup, yes, it’s wise to rely on what works for you — which often means shying away from slave-to-fashion trends. But with each new season comes a slew of new products that can be just as transformative as a good head of highlights or a new wardrobe. Here’s a sampling of what’s worth trying this fall.
L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Nurturing & Protective Lipcolour, $8.95, drugstores Don’t expect any baby pinks in L’Oreal’s limited-edition Midnight Muse collection. Each lipstick is deep and 100 percent fall-appropriate.
Urban Decay Lip Junkie Gloss, $19, Sephora Don’t you hate when your hair gets caught in your lip gloss? That’s not an issue with this silky formula that stays put longer than other glosses but never feels gummy or gooey. Available in 12 shades from hot pink to deep wine.
YSL Rouge Pur Couture, $35, Bloomingdale’s Known for iconic shades, YSL is at it again with the introduction of this new range of 18 sure-to-be-emblematic colors ranging from red and fuchsia to orange and rose.
Becca Prairie Moon Palette, $65, beccacosmetics.com We’re besotted with this earthy palette that provides a range of shadows and liners in seasonal shades of olive, gray and rust.
Topshop Crayon in Woodland, $12, Topshop A chunky eye pencil with enough glittery detail to make things festive without making you look like you pulled an all-nighter at a ‘90s rave. A bonus: It pulls double duty as both shadow and liner.
Tweezerman Anniversary Slant Tweezer, $25, tweezerman.com The ideal strong brow takes some time to perfect, and this classic — who happens to be celebrting the big 3-0 — makes the job a breeze.
Les Khakis de Chanel, $25 each, Chanel This seasonal collection of muted shades of khaki is far and away worth the hype that surrounds it.
NARS Vintage Nail Polish, $16, narscosmetics.com We’re thrilled NARS re-released several coveted shades of nail polish, both metallic (rust, army green, silver) and deep (forest green, navy).
Sula Paint and Peel Duo, $9, Sulabeauty.com It looks like a lip gloss, but it’s actually nail polish on one side and topcoat on the other. Genius! The best part? When you tire of the shade, it peels off in one fell swoop.
Urban Decay Good Karma Finishing Brush, $29, Macy’s Get ready to swoon over Urban Decay’s new line of cruelty-free makeup brushes — all of which do their part in creating a flawless face. Our fave? The fluffy finishing brush that not only smooths makeup but aids in removing too much.
Benefit Girl Meets Pearl, $30, Sephora We can’t get enough of this twist-up golden-pink liquid illuminator that — whether worn under makeup, over makeup or all alone — provides a super-dewy lit-from-within glow. Made with raspberry & chamomile, sweet almond seed and hydrating sesame seed oil.
MAC Venomous Villains ‘Bite of an Apple’ Blush, $19.50, maccosmetics.com Part of MAC and Disney’s anticipated collaboration, this matte blush imparts a perfect coral hue.
