Now that fall is here, it’s not just our closets that need a seasonal reset. We cleaned out our medicine cabinets and makeup drawers to refresh all of our beauty needs. These are the fall beauty products we’ve been waiting to bust out, whether that means skincare with a heavier focus on moisturizing or a color palette that requires colder weather.
On the makeup front, it means saying goodbye to the minimalist no-makeup look we’ve been relying on to take us from the pool to dinner parties. Now, we’re ready for a bigger beauty moment whether that means a rich, berry lip or vampy nails.
Pat McGrath, the mother of modern makeup, has been doing makeup for every movie star and fashion house you can think of for years. Her lipsticks are lush and saturated, and stay on through just about anything. Her MatteTrance lipstick in Full Bodied will give you the perfect wine colored lip. Rihanna’s beauty line Fenty also has a fantastic deep plummy red called Griselda.
Perfume is another thing we switch out once the sun starts setting early. Goodbye to the floral, citrusy scents we relied on. We were craving something a little muskier, like Maison Margiela’s Jazz Club perfume with its woody, spicy notes.
When it comes to skincare, Dr. Dennis Gross is a new secret weapon. The Alpha Beta Peel is soft enough for daily use, but powerful enough to provide you with an instantly fresher face. When it comes to moisturizers, we’re obsessed with Augustinus Bader’s cream, which is worth every single penny if you have the space in your budget.
