Fall makeup: Skin
Look and feel beautiful this fall with the help of the hottest makeup trends for gorgeous, glowing skin. Whether you are going for a dramatic vampy look or trying out the flawless nude makeup trend, these skin care products will keep your face looking fresh and fabulous.
Choose a moisturizing product that hydrates your face without leaving your skin feeling heavy or greasy. St. Ives Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer provides silky-smooth moisture while leaving skin feeling feather-light.
Bring out the best in your complexion with a foundation that matches your skin type. Whether your skin is naturally oily, dry, flaky or sensitive, a flawless foundation is a makeup must-have. Start with a foundation primer such as Smashbox Photo Finish to fill in fine lines, wrinkles and other imperfections with a smooth, satin finish. Let the primer set for a couple of minutes before applying a small amount of foundation to your chin, cheeks, forehead and the tip of your nose. Gently blend in an outward direction to get smooth, natural-looking coverage. (To achieve the most sheer coverage, try using a sponge or makeup brush instead.) Bobbi Brown's line of foundation makeup offers a variety of products to enhance every skin tone and color. "You know you've found the right foundation when it looks like skin," says Bobbi Brown.
You don't have to go outside in the cold to get that romantic flushed-cheek look so popular on the runways this fall. Just choose a crème, powder or mineral blush that suits your skin tone. The award-winning Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is an industry favorite because of its intense range of shades and colors (soft pink and deep berry are our faves), courtesy of natural Amazonian clay.
After applying your blush, use a soft stippling brush to highlight just the very tops of your cheekbones with a product such as MAC Mineralize Skinfinish. This will give your cheeks that gorgeous, sunkissed glow that's all the rage on the catwalk this autumn.
Don't forget about the rest of your body when you're completing your daily beauty routine. Carmex Healing Lotion is perfect for daily moisturizing without a greasy feel. Rich healing ingredients such as aloe and vitamin E nourish and revitalize skin, making your whole body feel velvety-soft and baby-smooth.
