As October is a bit of an “in-between” month (seasons changing, weather doing funny things) sometimes it’s difficult to know how to transition. Trust us on these must-haves, and you’ll breeze through autumn – enjoy those last warm days!!
Missoni is known for their beautifully patterned dresses but you should check out what they can do with makeup. Their new Face Highlighter Compact is composed of warm shades of bronze, pink, champagne, and orange in their signature zig zag pattern. Sweep the included contoured brush over the whole lot for a luminescent glow or get in there with an eyeshadow brush and do some damage. www.gloss.com
Are you one of those women who loves a good Ziploc bag when she travels? You are going to love the new line of sturdy clear plastic bags with slide tops from HipZipz. They’ll keep your shampoo and face wash from leaking all over your clothes in style! HipZipz has four different collections to choose from – everything from buddahs and peace signs to a skull and cross bones. www.hipzipz.com.
If you always feel like your eyelashes are cracking in half from mascara, don’t look to old man winter for the hydration hook up, cold weather is brutal on already fragile lashes. Grab a tube of Estee Lauder’s new More Than Mascara. Available in eight shades the formula has an exclusive Moisture-Binding formula that defines and conditions lashes meaning less flaking and the hollow-bristle brush grabs each lash. www.esteelauder.com
You’ve seen it everywhere and with good reason – Yves Saint Laurent’s Perfect Touch is one of the ultimate Quick Fixes. Foundation and brush all in one, this formula has a hit of the best selling Touche Eclat highlighting concealor as well as protection against UVA damage. Throw it in your bag and go! www.saksfifthavenue.com.
Okay, so it’s Halloween this month so you get permission to dress all trampy and such and you need the eyeshadow to go along with it!
