With days getting shorter and temperatures getting cooler, there’s not much to love about the inevitable end of summer. But embracing the fall season isn’t so hard when you have some great skin and beauty products to keep you looking and feeling your best. From classics to brand new products for fall 2015, here are some of our favourite skin and beauty must-haves this season.
For staying fresh:
The epitome of luxury, Decadence opens up with Italian plum, iris flower, and saffron scents, that reveals elegant notes of Bulgarian rose, jasmine sambac, and orris. This must-have fragrance then finishes off with lovely base notes of vetiver, papyrus woods, and liquid amber. It’s a scent perfect for all your fancy engagements this season, or a girls night out on the town. And if the fragrance isn’t enough to convince you, it’s glamourous purse-like packaging will. Featuring a deep green python print and a gold chain adorned with a black tassel, Decadence embodies the true spirit of an elegant, empowered woman. And frankly, that’s in season all year round.
For seasonal dry skin:
As if the cold weather wasn’t enough, the toll it takes on our skin is simply unforgiving. That’s why choosing the right moisturizer that’s able to keep your skin hydrated and soft is absolutely essential. If your current moisturizer can’t do the double-duty, it’s time to say au revoir, darling! That’s where philosophy’s Hope in a Jar comes in. It’s award-winning formula provides antioxidant protection while improving skin texture and tone, revealing smooth and radiant skin. And don’t just take it from me, take Oprah Winfrey’s word for it, who’s apparently a major fan of the product. And guys, we can trust Oprah.
For dramatic eyes:
We may not have a wallet big enough for anything from the Yves Saint Laurent runway, but there is a lil’ something for your makeup bag. The metal clash couture palette includes deep and bold shades for dramatic, show-stopping eyes – a base, a highlighter, and three complementary shades. The rich metallic hues aren’t only meant for fall, but for any woman who loves to make a statement.
For kissable soft lips:
We have to thank Miley Cyrus for this one. Since featuring EOS lip balms in her music video for We Can’t Stop, our lips haven’t been the same. EOS is a 99 per cent natural lip balm best known for it’s long lasting moisture. With ingredients like Shea butter and vitamins C and E, your lips are guaranteed to be kissably soft all through the fall and winter months. From it’s adorable egg-shaped packaging to its lineup of irresistible flavours – it’s no wonder EOS lip balms have skyrocketed in popularity.
For strong nail game:
Ditch the pastels and neon coloured nails and go for deep, metallic polishes this fall. Stick to bronzey coloured hues that are bold and fearless but still complement the season’s signature earthy tones. Our pick: Essie’s alloyed bronze bombshell.
