My Fall Must Have Beauty Products


Once again it’s that time of year when the leaves fall from the trees, and Starbucks introduces those yummy spiced pumpkin lattes. It can only mean one thing; it’s fall. I don’t know about you, but Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I just love how pretty the trees look and how the weather isn’t too hot or too cold – it’s the perfect time of year.

Today, I thought that I would share all of my must have Fall beauty products with you. For everything you need to know about the beauty items I have fallen in love with for this Fall, keep reading!

Cream-to-powder foundation

I don’t know about you, but during the colder months I find that my skin becomes incredibly red and shiny. Although I can use a light foundation or even a BB cream in the Summer, come Fall I need something a little heavier.

While I am a fan of liquid foundations, for the colder months a cream-to-powder foundation is an absolute must-have for me. If you choose to invest in one of these bad boys, don’t make the mistake of applying it with your fingers, always use a sponge or brush. If you have a look at Sigma cosmetics online, you can find lots of fantastic sponges and brushes to choose from.

Dark shades of lipstick

I might love pinky shades and red-toned lipsticks during the Summer months, but come Fall and I am all about the darker colors. My go-to fall colors for lipstick are beige, orangey red, and deep red. While I love the lipsticks that are even darker in color, I tend to stick to these colors, instead.

As well as my stash of Fall lipsticks, I also have a couple of dark colored lip crayons which I love. These babies are fantastic for when you are on the move as they don’t need the same amount of precision as lipstick. The added bonus of lip crayons is the fact that they are incredibly moisturizing so as well as giving a boost of color, they also keep your lips healthy.

Deep conditioning masks for my hair

I don’t know about you, but I find that once the colder weather hits, my hair suffers. As soon as Fall is upon us, I tend to notice that my hair becomes drier than normal. While I still use my regular conditioner each time I wash my hair, I also like to deep condition it a couple of times a month.

There are lots of hair masks to choose from, but some of the best ones are the masks that need to be heated before use. These are great as the heat of the mask along with the rich conditioner, do wonders for your hair.

If you don’t like the idea of buying a hair mask, you could always make one yourself. If you have a look online, you can find lots of ideas for DIY hair masks.

I am crazy about beauty products but come Fall, these are my absolute must-have items.

Top 5 – May


The days are getting longer and warmer, and I feel that my love of the sun is reflected in the products I’ve been loving this past month.

1. Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream – Seeing as I have a slight tan at the moment, I’ve been looking for something with much lighter coverage. Nothing worse than wearing the same foundation while tanned as your pasty face wore all winter. White face much? That’s why this BB Cream has been working wonders. BB creams, as most of you probably know, are tinted moisturizers rather than full coverage foundations. This Smashbox BB Cream is also broad spectrum SPF 35! Most foundations are only around 15 if they have any SPF at all. This is why I think this little guy will be a fav for the summer.

2. Revlon Photo Ready Cream Blush in Pinched – I was really unsure of this one when I picked it up a few months ago. As much as I love Revlon products I always have an internal struggle when purchasing due to the fact that there are rarely testers in the local Shoppers. But I chanced this one and was pleasantly pleased. The light pink cream blush has a sweet dewey finish and is such a simple and subtle cheek colour. I always apply cream blushes with my finger tips, but you can also use a stippling brush or a round headed foundation brush.

3. Origins GinZing Eye Cream – I’m pretty sure I’ve discussed my love of this before. Such a refreshing feeling. It instantly brightens and de-puffs my eyes and now that the weather is getting so sunny and warm I’m really enjoying a brighter, fresher look to my face! This has become a staple of my pre-makeup routine. A little moisturizer and GinZing Eye Cream make for an important start to my day! Can’t wait to try more Origins products. Any suggestions?

4. The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist – Once again I’m discussing my love of the Body Shop’s Vitamin E line. I’ve mentioned it a lot lately. I just love it so much. And this little baby is no exception. The Vitamin E Face Mist is perfect after my morning face wash. It instantly refreshes and moisturizes my face with a boost of vitamin E to prepare it for the day. With air conditioning pumping through every building I step into nowadays, my skin has been drying out pretty fast (just after I fixed the dry damage from the winter – can’t catch a break). So a spritz of this is required.

5. L’Oreal Magic Lumi Concealer – It’s taken me awhile to warm up to this one, and I’m still not entirely convinced. I don’t use concealer on a regular basis but lately when I do use it I find myself reaching for this one. I’ve head a lot of great things about it from other bloggers so I’ve stuck with it. The shade I have (Light 862) is a perfect match for me. I’m going to stick with it!

So there you have it. My top 5 of May. I’m so excited to be into the warm weather and summer months now, and I can’t wait to delve further into the world of makeup as my blog is coming upon it’s 1 year anniversary!! Thanks for reading my friends! And happy shopping.
