Hi Socialites! I’m a huge fan of Fall, and all of the cozy scarves and sweaters, stylish trench coats, and cute boots that come along with it! The Fall weather really allows me to play more with my hair and makeup, because I don’t have to worry about the humidity or sweltering temps wreaking havoc with my makeup and styling! (You know how some women don’t perspire…they merely glow? Yeah, I’m not that girl!)
For everyday makeup, I try to keep it simple, but polished. However, Fall is the season when I can begin incorporating tones and shades that I wouldn’t normally use, such as chocolates and minks, plums, and rich reds. I’ve already established my 5 fall beauty favorites that will be on repeat, and I’m sharing them with you today!
NYX Suede Matte Lipstick
I love the formula of this lipstick, and the gorgeous fuchsia color of the Sweet Tooth shade. I’m not always the biggest fan of pink on my skin tone, but I find that this brand has a plum undertone that helps me pull it off. The formula goes on smooth, and I don’t need gloss. I’ll be alternating this with earthy reds for Fall!
Too Faced Chocolate Palette
Ya’ll…this Palette is hands down my favorite! It’s older, so I’m sure a lot of you have already heard of it, or own it, but if not, go ahead and add this fall beauty favorite to your shopping list TODAY!!! The brown shades (milk chocolate, triple fudge, semi-sweet, and haute chocolate) are staples for me, but you can also use the purple and rose shades for a change of pace to your fall makeup look.

I used Semi-Sweet from the Chocolate Palette over my entire eye from lid to brow bone as a “base” color
I applied the Triple Fudge shade across my entire lid *theoretically, I know that you’re supposed to do the darkest shades in the crease, but I have very deep set eyes, and my lid is the most prominent part of my eye, and I love to play it up!*
I lined my eyes using Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liner in shade Intense Black
I used Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara to achieve my flirty “are they real or fake?” lashes. I always use 2-3 coats per eye.
Cheek to Chic Blush
This Charlotte Tilbury blush is a staple for me. I love how the design makes it super easy to define your cheekbones, and then add a pop of color right onto the apples. I am not a beauty expert, so having a product that takes all of the guesswork out is major for me! The Climax shade is one of my fall beauty favorites because as my summer tan fades away, my golden undertones start returning, and I can enhance them with the subtle shades of toffee, and amber.
Better Than Sex Mascara
This mascara is just insane!!! I’ve gone through many mascaras, and may have raved about them all (LOL) but I feel like I’ve found my holy grail with Better Than Sex! The formula really extends and enhances my lashes without clumping. I really only need 2-3 coats per eye to get a false lash look.
LA Girl Pro Conceal
I bought this concealer in shade Toffee, and at first I thought it was too light. With continued practice, I learned that this formula blends beautifully, and really helps with the darkness under my eyes. I mentioned earlier that my eyes are very deep set, so I have hollows under my eyes that can look dark due to shadows. This can make applying concealer tricky, because the darkness isn’t caused by the usual dark circle suspects, and is a result of shadow/light play. LA Girl concealer is thick, and provides a good “base” under my eye, making it appear as though my under-eye hollows are not so deep or dark. It comes with its own built in brush which makes application super easy!
