Makeup Products I'm Reaching for this Fall | Top Picks


With seasons changing, I always like to switch things up not only in my closet but also in my go-to makeup drawer by rotating the products that I reach for the most. Fall makeup trends are inspired by deep colours, and some of my favourites include coffee brown, metallic grey, burgundy, and dark purple. Of course I also like to keep staple products that can go with any look too, I guess it's all about balance right? I thought I would share four items that I am thoroughly enjoying wearing now that autumn has arrived!


1. Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Broadest Berry - Talk about the perfect dark lip shade! Seems everyone is rocking bold lip colours during this time of the year, and I am definitely one to experiment with them too. I love that it's an actual lip balm so it doesn't dry out my lips, but it also has a much longer staying power than other tinted lip products I have tried. On days when I don't want my lips to be the center of attention, I will just dab a small layer on, and when I feel like being more adventurous with my makeup, I will be more generous with my application.


2. Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in R.S.V.P. - A staple shade in my opinion - it can be worn all over the lid for an even wash of colour, and I also like to blend it with darker shades in my crease to create a pretty, smokey effect. On days when I am racing out the door, I will quickly apply some of the eye shadow with my finger and add a coat of mascara, and doing just that makes me go from looking like I just rolled out of bed to awake and ready to tackle the day!


3. Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder (reviewed here) - An oldie but a goodie! I tend to reach for matte bronzers when the weather starts to cool off. This one is my go-to for either bronzing or contouring since it layers very nicely, so if you just want to add a little extra wash of colour to give your face more dimension or are aiming to achieve extra sculpted cheekbones, this one will provide beautiful results - without making you look orangey or muddy!


4. NYX Powder Blush in Terra Cotta (reviewed here) - A super pretty, subtle bronze shade verging on slightly peachy on the skin, for when I feel like adding a bit more sheen to my cheeks. It isn't extremely pigmented which is how I prefer my blushes. I've also been loving wearing it as an eye shadow. It's a few shades darker than Benefit's R.S.V.P., but still very wearable.

These are just a few of my go-to products that I thought were worth sharing! I hope this gives you a bit of inspiration to try something new, even if it means stepping out of your comfort zone! Makeup is all about being creative, after all, and being a little more daring once in a while is just part of the fun!

Have you tried any of these makeup items? Which one would you be keen on trying?

  3. Woah, Broadest Berry is gorgeous!!! I definitely need to check that shade out because I've been wanting a good berry tinted lip balm/colour for myself, since full on mattes are quite intimidating (and drying), ya know?
