Fall brings in lower temperatures and you have to prepare your skin for this change. It’s no surprise that our skin becomes more dry and we may have to step up our skin care routine. Keep in mind that you always have to make sure your skin does not have any dry patches before applying any foundation. One of the best products I have discovered to help you with that is the Tsubaki (Camellia) Beauty Oil from Boscia. The skin benefits of the Camellia oil has been discovered by Japanese women and was quickly included in their daily beauty routine to help keep their skin soft, smooth and supple. This oil absorbs fast in your skin without leaving any grease behind and has anti aging benefits. You can use this oil by itself or you can mix it up with your daily moisturizer for the perfect glowy look.
2. Illuminators/ Highlighters
Fall 2015 is all about strobing as you may have already seen on most social media platforms. The most frequent question I get from my clients is what product is the best for highlighting? Well, from my experience, I believe that cream illuminators and highlighters are the best choice for any skin type because it gives you the most natural glow from within. I tend to avoid powder highlighters as I find that in some cases it fails to blend seamlessly into the skin and it can look cakey at the end of the day. One of my favourite highlighters and a must in my makeup kit is the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector . This product comes in 5 variety of colours perfect for any skin tone. You can apply this product with your fingers or a stippling brush on top of your cheek bones for natural looking radiant skin.
We all know Fall is all about darker colours and sometimes they don’t work great with any skin tone when it comes to blushes. However, I’ve been researching for a while now and I must say that I found the perfect blush for skin tones from porcelain light to medium dark. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure is a winner when it comes to any Fall makeup looks. The fact that this product has a spectrum of colours and it’s not completely matte gives it the power to blend into any skin tone and gives you a dimensional look. Each blush in the Ambient Lighting collection is handmade and includes a mix of the ambient lighting powder and pigment. It gives you a wonderful airbrushed look in any picture and this plum colour is perfect for everybody!
You all know Dat Von D’s makeup products are one of my favourites and again, she didn’t fail me with here new Metal Crush Eyeshadows. Talk about pigmentation! These eyeshadows come in some amazing colours very metallic and pigmented perfect for Fall. Some of my favourites colours are Synergy (metallic bronze), Doce (metallic copper), Raw Power (metallic mahogany) and, last but definitely not least, Black No. 1 (metallic gunmetal). If you want a pop of colour you can also grab the mermaid green and violet. These eyeshadows are marketed as being long lasting which is always a plus for any beauty product. They have a blendable creamy formula and they are highly metallic. Most of the colours remind me of the rusty leaves in the woods and that’s everything you need to get in touch with Fall!
5. Skin Mist
To complete any makeup look you definitely need a makeup setting spray or a skin mist. The Luminous Dewy Skin Mist from Tatcha says it all. Once you spray it on your skin you will have a luminous complexion all day long and it will keep your skin moisturized. This product is formulated with anti aging ingredients extracted from green tea, rice bran oil, and red algae. It is more on the pricey however, I would recommended for mature skin and colder weather. You can use this product before or after you apply your makeup to have amazing results.
