I don’t know about you, but I’m actually glad summer has officially come to an end. Goodbye sweltering heat. Goodbye makeup melting off my face. As a beauty girl, I am obsessed with the summer to fall transition — because who doesn’t love a good dark lip and mani?
Here, I’m sharing all the best beauty products that will help you slay the day this season.
Too Cool for School
Because it wouldn’t feel like fall without a touch of pumpkin, this Too Cool for School Pumpkin 24K Gold Sheet Mask is a perfect addition to your autumn beauty routine. Pumpkin fruit extract, white gold, and 24K gold eliminate any dullness, dryness, and rough texture for a look of radiance. Too Cool for School Pumpkin 24K Gold Mask, $8
These Glamour Dolls Mattenetic lipsticks are paraben-free, cruelty-free, and vegan. They come in super bold colors, with names like “Resist” — a personal favorite — and “Ignite.” These longwear (yes, you can wear all day!) matte lipsticks include a castor seed oil formula which won’t dry out lips, instead leaving them nourished and soft to the touch.
