We’re headed back to school! Whether this means back to campus or back to the classroom, fall is upon us. It’s time to freshen up our makeup routines and remember what we love about getting ready. Sometimes we forget that being a girl is fun and that doing our hair, makeup and nails is a treat. This is a great time to invest in some items that will revitalize your interest in taking care of yourself and looking great! We’ve paired some of these items with tutorials so that you can find inspiration as how to use them! Choose palettes based on your makeup needs and your personality, and consider multiple looks when buying investment pieces for fall. Read the extended column on Beauty Forum for more ideas on how to start this fall refreshed and excited about doing your makeup again, as well as in-depth help with these tutorials and more products!
Urban Decay Naked Palette- A standard for gorgeous neutral looks, and a great palette to invest in. If you love to wear looks that range from demure to sexy, this is the palette for you!
Beautyful Thoughts Neutral Gradient Makeup Tutorial Using the Naked Palette
Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection- A more adventurous palette, but equally useful. A row of neutrals, a row of brights and a row of darks. Endless looks could be created with this palette.
Miss Glamorazzi Sweatproof Makeup for Summer (A similar look can be achieved using the Urban Decay 15 Year palette above, check out the supplement post all about this tutorial!!)
Smashbox Softbox Lipgloss Collection- A great set of Smashbox lipglosses that could get you through any situation!
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Cleansers- I love these cleansers. I (Hannah) recently bought the Hydrating Pineapple cleanser and it removes all my makeup, makes my skin baby smooth. I adore the smell and I skip to the bathroom excited to wash my face.
NARS Blush/Bronzer Trio in Orgasm/Albatross/Laguna- Blush, bronze and highlight all in one. You can’t go wrong with the classics.
Laura Geller Baked and Beautiful Kit- Laura Geller’s products have become increasingly popular and this set is an incredible starter kit. Brushes, lips, blush, eyes… it’s everything.
OPI Touring America Mini Nail Laquers Set- I love mini sets because they give you an idea of the collection without costing a fortune. OPI’s latest collection was particularly great, and I’d definitely check it out.
