With the approach (or rather the onset) of fall comes the accompanying trends in makeup and new product lines released by not only MAC Cosmetics, but nearly every major beauty brand as well. Support Temptalia.com by picking up your fall must-haves through Nordstrom.com (make sure to use links from this post!). But first, take a look at what Temptalia recommends you check out for this autumnal season!
Let’s start with my number one addiction… MAC Cosmetics.
As we know, both Blue Storm and Smoke Signals gave us a real head start into fall makeup, and while those are stunning, here are some other products that shouldn’t be missed amongst the limited edition lines (plus, don’t forget, there are several new collections launching later on in September, as well as Alexander McQueen in October – oh, and numerous holiday launches, oh my!).
For the eyes… I would not feel complete and ready to take on the changes of fall without these stunning shadows: Antiqued (gorgeous coppery brown), Bronze (deep chocolate brown with shimmer), Femme Noir (matte deep green), Goldmine (true shimmer gold), Motif (duochrome irridescent orange/purple), and Shroom (subtly shimmery highlight) to name a few; check out this list of eyeshadows for a complete selection.
For the lips… I have to have my corals – I just couldn’t live without them, which means I always ensure that I have a tube of CB96 on hand, plus Sweetie for my barely-there-pink lip. Even if I feel ridiculous in this season’s trendy vampy lip, I still suggest checking out Dark Side, Odyssey, and Rebel to scratch that itch. Go ahead and check out this list of lipsticksfor a complete selection.
For the face… In the summer, I tend to tan a bit, so I end up with a bottle of foundation in NC35, but once fall kicks in, I fade a bit to NC30, my more normalized skin color. I adore Studio Fix Fluid foundation, and if you’re able, try and pick up a sample next time you’re at a MAC store or or counter. Moving on to care of the face, because it is wholly important with the expected dryness that accompanies the season. We know Louise Zizzo can’t go without Fast Response Eye Cream, so you shouldn’t either. I personally love MAC’s Strobe Cream for a great light coated moisturizer. See the whole line of moisturizers!
Oh, and if you haven’t already picked up your Blue Storm and Smoke Signals goodies, the Gentle Fume x4 and Smoking x4 quads are NOT to be missed. They are perfect for travel or having a no-brainer look because the colors pair so well with each other. I adore Blue Storm eyeshadow; it’s a lovely blue hue, but it isn’t overindulgent like Freshwater or Deep Truth can be. Plus, rock the vampy lip with Burnin’ lipstick (and pair it with Bizaarish lipglass if you’re feeling feisty)!
Let’s see what other beauty brands have in store for us this fall (there are other brands? oh, yes, far too many for any one woman’s wallet!)…
