Fall isn’t technically the start of a new year but it still seems to feel that way. With kids going back to school and summer ending, we love the feeling that the start of the new season brings. There are so many opportunities to start fresh with new habits, the possibilities are endless! Instead of shopping for back to school supplies, why not revamp your beauty kit with some fresh new products that will instantly put you in the mood for the season of crunchy leaves, hot chocolate, sweaters and pumpkin.
We’ll start with an absolute necessity and a product to help you literally “start fresh” this fall. We wish it were true but brushes are not self cleaning. What’s worse, they collect EVERYTHING that they come in contact with, which not only includes airborne particles but also bacteria from your face. If that doesn’t gross you out enough to immediately deep clean your brushes, just take a look at them. The pigment from your products stays embedded in the bristles, which can muddle the shades of new products you dip into. Luckily, using our Brush Cleaner after each application can help speed up the washing process and keep your brushes cleaner longer. Note: as helpful as Brush Cleaner is, it is not a replacement for a thorough brush cleaning.
These multi-taskers can do it all! Easy to use and blend, Cream Stay Shadow Sticks stay in place all day long. Our current lineup includes 6 different shades that can prime, line, highlight and define all areas of the face. Looking for inspiration? Try Prelude as a highlight in the inner corner of the eye, along the bridge of the nose and tops of the cheekbones. Use Pitch to line the eyes then blend it out for an effortless smoky effect. Layer Beam under Toast to achieve a gorgeous bronzed metallic look. Want even more? Keep an eye out for new shades coming early 2019!
During the cooler, fall months more than ever, we love a flushed, lit-from-within cheek. Cream Blush seamlessly blends into skin for a gorgeous glow, whether you want a more natural or bold look. What we love most about Cream Blush is its versatility. All four gorgeous shades look amazing on the eyes and lips, in addition to the cheeks. The creamy formula stays put thanks to Kaolin Clay, which keeps you shine free by absorbing excess oil production. And don’t forget, shade Warmth looks great when used as bronzer/contour!
Your new best friend for this season, Liquid Ink is essential for creating the expert winged eye, whether it’s for Halloween or just a night on the town. The skinny, felt applicator makes it easy to create precise lines that won’t smudge- perfect for anyone with oily lids or watery eyes. Need a few tips for creating your best cat eye? Start in the center of the upper lash line and gradually work the line towards the outer corner. As you drag the line out further, raise it towards the temple to create a slight flick.
Leaves change and so can your lip color. Fall is the perfect time to transition to darker shades with a velvety-smooth matte finish that won’t dry out your lips. Our popular crayon comes in a variety of shades but we especially love Crimson, a rich, cool red and Rumor, a vibrant berry to put you in a festive mood. Not ready to embrace the dark lip quite yet? Shades like Trademark and Demure are both earthy nudes that work well during any season. The best part? Suede Matte Crayons don’t smudge and won’t leave a mark on your Pumpkin Spice Latte.
