Fall Beauty & Makeup Must Haves

Fall Beauty & Makeup Must Haves 2017

I am blessed to live in an area of the country where we experience all four seasons.  Fall is by far, my favorite season of the year.  Surrounded by the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, we really know how to do fall here in East Tennessee!  You can find the beauty of Autumn everywhere.  From the vibrant fall leaves to the pumpkins of all shapes & sizes to the hay rides and hot apple cider!  I could go on and on but since this is a post about Fall Beauty & Makeup Must Haves, I won’t 🙂

Every Spring & Fall, I like to make a few changes to my Beauty, Skincare & Makeup Routine.  It’s always fun to add new trending makeup products and… there are Classics that I turn to year after year.  Let’s get to it…  Here are 10 Ways to Spruce up your Beauty & Makeup Routine this Fall with these trending & classic beauty must haves!#1 Use Bronzer as a Blush – 2017 Fall Makeup Trend

Tired of contouring? Good News!  One of the 2017 Fall Makeup Trends is to toss your contour kit & trade it in  for a warm bronzer used in place of your blush.  Just make sure it isn’t shimmery.  Two to try are Benefit’s Hoola Matte Bronzing Powder & NYX’s Matte Bronzer.

#2 Fall Scented Candles

Ok, I know that this is not makeup or beauty related… But, I’m betting if you’re a beauty lover reading this, you probably love candles as much as I do!  Am I right??  Candles warm up your home, your personal space and your spirit and can even improve your mood!  There’s nothing better than a perfectly scented candle for the Fall!  Here are two fall scented candles I can’t live without!  They make your home smell fantastic & put you in the mood for pumpkin pie & hot apple cider!

Pure Integrity Pumpkin Pie Soy Candle

These candles are handmade & smell amazing!  This top selling scented candle smells just like pumpkin pie with a hint of cinnamon and spice.

#3 Lit From Within Glow – 2017 Fall Makeup Trend

This look is about an angelic glow using strategically placed highlighter.  Highlighters used to create this look vary from the traditional champagne, rose gold and pearl shades you may be familiar with.  The look is created using rainbow colors or holographic lavender & purple tinged highlighters.  Apply the highlighter onto the high points of your face as well as any other areas you want to draw attention to.  Here are a few good bets for creating this look:

Lavender/Purple Highlighters to Try:

Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter in Transcendence

#4 Metallic Eyes & Lips – 2017 Fall Makeup Trend

The Metallic Eye Trend from the Spring continues into Fall along with Metallic Lips.  Metallics are back in a big way for fall 2017!  Trending this fall is a softer, sheen metallic look for the eyes (seen below).  The soft sheen is easy to wear during the day or night and can be achieved with just one product.  Two to try are Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks (available in 13 shades) and Kat Von D Beauty Metal Crush Eyeshadow (in 10 shades).

Soft, Sheen Metallic Eyes!
Create this Metallic Eye using an eyeshadow that creates a soft sheen.

Metallic Lips

Whether it’s a liquid lipstick, gloss or regular lipstick, Metallic Lips are one of the hottest makeup trends this Fall.  Metallic lipstick concentrated on the center of your lips, top and bottom, helps create a pouty lip.  Metallic lipsticks are basically a highlighter for your lips.  Two best bets for creating this look are NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Cream Lipstick (shown below in New Era) and MAC Metallic Lipstick (shown below in Lust).

#5 Luxurious Body Cream/Oil to Prepare your Skin for Winter

Winter wreaks havoc on the skin and will be here before we know it.   Prepare now by switching to a body cream or body oil that is ultra moisturizing and protects your skin.  I like to apply my body cream or body oils immediately after a shower or bath while the skin is still wet.  Then lightly pat dry after applying.  It makes a world of difference!  Here are a few body creams and body oils that will have your skin winter ready in no time!

Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter is fantastic, slather this on after showering and I swear it lasts 24 hours!  Ahava Mineral Body Lotion smells amazing & leaves skin silky smooth.  I like to layer this on AFTER applying a body oil!

ELEMIS Frangipani Monoi Body Oil leaves skin unbelievably smooth and leaves a nice sheen on the skin.  And, you can also use this on your hair!  Weleda Wild Rose Body Oil renews and nourishes the skin with ingredients that leave it healthy and radiant.  Plus it smells amazing, like a bouquet of roses!

#6 Powder Blue Eyes – 2017 Fall Makeup Trend

This is one of the prettiest looks of the season.  Elegant & romantic, this look can provide depth & brightness to the eyes and looks great on most skintones.  The Powder Blue Eye Look can be easily achieved with any of the eyeshadows below combined with a generous coat of mascara on the top and bottom lashes!

#7 Indulge in a Long Bubble Bath with Fall Scents!

This may be my favorite one on the list!  Bubble Baths are a huge part of my life!  And this is one of my favorite times of the year to relax & enjoy long, hot baths with any of these scented fall favorites!  They’ll leave your body feeling relaxed and your spirit refreshed.  There’s NOTHING better than a long, hot bubble bath!  Try Philosophy Autumn Favorites, a Shower Gel Trio with the flavors of fall!  It includes mixed berry tart, apple cider, and french vanilla.  Philosophy Shower Gels also double as Bubble Baths and Shampoo which is a plus!

#8 Add a Refreshing Mist to Your Beauty Stash

For added hydration and all around Glow, carry a refreshing mist in your purse.  Spritz it onto your face whenever you need to refresh or feel dry.  Wander Beauty’s Glow Getter Mist is perfect to throw in your bag to refresh my makeup throughout the day.  Wander Beauty Glow Getter Mist is enriched with glacier water from Iceland to soothe, hyaluronic acid to plump fine lines, and 25 essential oils that leave your skin glowing.  Trust me, you need this in your life!

#10 Add a Super-charged Lip Balm to your Beauty Bag

To prevent dry, chapped lips (you KNOW they are coming along with winter!), add a lip balm that doubles as a lip treatment to your skincare routine.  Use it day & night to keep your lips super hydrated & kissable.  Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment is one of my favorites and a lifesaver during the fall/winter seasons!
