Fall is such a beloved season, especially among New Yorkers. It’s a time for layering your clothing and color-coordinating your makeup with rich, autumn hues. Let’s celebrate this favorite season by checking out the best in department store beauty, hand-picked by yours truly. This season’s gorgeous makeup colors are calling out to you. Don’t even try to resist, they’re what you really want now.
Dior 5 Couleurs Skyline Couture Colors & Effects Eyeshadow Palettes: This stunning palette is inspired by the iconic architecture of the Eiffel Tower. That’s enough reason for you to be “all in” with these limited edition palettes. However, the shadows are deeply pigmented and therefore perfect for the season.
Lancome Juicy Shaker: Lancome’s latest lip innovation is a makeup bag essential. You shake the tube and then apply. It’s a seriously addictive lip oil with a pillow-y soft cushion applicator. You get a pop of color with additional shine. Basically, the Juicy Shaker is as delish as an after-work cocktail.
Lancome Cushion Blush Subtil: It’s all about cushions this fall. This plush and squishy cushion compact blush delivers vibrant color and a dewy glow. The result is those much-desired, naturally flushed, and healthy looking cheeks… it’s as though you were just walking in the brisk, crisp afternoon air in a pumpkin patch or apple orchard in October.
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation: A soft glow and a natural finish, with some radiance? Yes, yes, and yes. That’s exactly what NARS Sheer Glow offers. Build your coverage as you wish.
Jane Iredale Smooth Affair For Eyes: I’ve tried plenty of cream shadows in my life and my career and can honestly say that this one is unlike most others. The cream-to-powder formula works as its own shadow or as a primer. I love the natural, subtle glow it adds to lids. The coverage is light, but the color payoff is stunning.
Laura Mercier Kajal D’Orient Eye Liner: You only need one or two strokes of this carbon eyeliner, which smudges and blends beautifully for the fall-ready, always-in-style smoky eye.
OPI Washington DC Collection: You don’t need to live in the nation’s capital to appreciate these fall and winter-ready colors. Every time I wear them on my digits, I get compliments.
