New Fall Beauty

Since I have been away, I have tried a few new beauty products that I wanted to be sure to share. Now that the weather is getting a bit chillier, I am trying to transition my makeup and skin routine for the upcoming temperature changes. This normally means switching to a heavier lotion, switching out BB cream for an actual foundation, and giving my locks a little bit extra TLC. Here are a few new things I have picked up...

Fall Beauty Products

First Aid Beauty face moisturizer / Bumble and Bumble beauty product / Beauty product / Laura Mercier foundation, $53 / Benefit face makeup / NARS Cosmetics shimmer blush

1. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle
Since decided to have my hair highlighted a few months ago, my hair has been in need of serious moisture. I remember Ashley mentioning this product and how much she loved it so I thought I would give it a try and boy did it not disappoint. My hair feels instantly smoother and healthier after using this and it smells great!

2. Nars Blush/ Bronzer Duo
I have been eyeing this for a long time and finally decided to bit the bullet and buy it. It comes with Orgasm, a blush I have used before and LOVED. The bronzer is also great and not super dark or have a ton of shimmer in it. 

3. Aquaphor Intense Lip Repair
This is my go to for when my lips start becoming chapped. I have gone through countless numbers of these little tubes and will always love how it keeps my lips smooth and soft throughout the colder months. 

4. Benefit Watt's Up
I originally received this as a sample but quickly fell in love. I have been using it with my Blush/Bronzer for a bit of contouring and am loving it. It's also great to add a hint just below your brow bone for an added highlighting. 

5. Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish
If you don't have this product... run to go get it. It has officially become my favorite for adding lift and volume while also keeping fly aways in place. A little bit goes a long way and it's not exactly cheap either so use sparingly!

6. Laura Mercier Silk Foundation
While perusing at Sephora last week I mentioned to the sales girl that I was thinking about picking up a new foundation. I told her I wanted something that wasn't too heavy but would provide me with good coverage and keep my skin moisturized. After trying a few different brands, we tried this and both agreed it looked the best! It goes on super smooth and feels amazing and even lasts all day while I'm at work!

7. First Aid Beauty Daily Face Cream
I also tried this product out while I was at Sephora and instantly fell in love. It's super light weight but immediately makes your skin feel quenched. Also a steal for just $20!

How do you transition your makeup and skin care?

Yours truly,
