When Fall rolls around, I tend to switch up my beauty routine just a dash. I add in some darker colors, bring in heavier moisturizers… all to keep up with the colder temperatures, chilling winds and of course, festive holiday spirit. In this post, I’m sharing my fall beauty products from skincare to makeup to hair. Sephora is having their annual beauty insider sale, where you can get up to 20 percent off all items at Sephora! If you’ve been a Color & Chic reader for a while, you know I exclusively use these sales to stock up on makeup for the year. This way I get all the items I need, 20 percent off and I’m set until the next sale.

Estee Lauder Double Wear – My holy grail foundation for every day. The coverage you get with this foundation is incredible and this tops my list when it comes to my fall beauty products. I use shades Spiced Sand and Cashew.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk – Nothing compares to the finish of this foundation. It truly looks like skin while giving incredible coverage. This is a must-have when it comes to fall my beauty products. I know it’s a splurge but with Sephora’s sale, you can’t not pick this up!
La Mer Soft Fluid Foundation – A definite splurge and to be honest, I would not purchase this if it wasn’t on sale since the price tag is so high. However, you get the benefits of La Mer’s famous kelp broth in makeup. Win win.
Too Faced Concealer – Incredibly creamy, opaque and a great overall concealer. I love using this for under the eyes and to highlight my nose.
Bobbi Brown Concealer: Bobbi Brown sent me these last summer and I was pleasantly surprised by how full coverage these are without being cakey or creasing! Plus, they really brighten under the eyes.
NARS Concealer: My go-to concealer because of how bright this makes my undereye look. The formula is such a goodie and sits well on top of foundation.
Charlotte Tilbury Powder – My favorite powder to use hands down, especially if I’m going to be photographed. This truly gives you an airbrush finish and your skin will look flawless. I use the color medium. This is also one of my go-to fall beauty products when I travel since it’s compact.
Lawless Setting Powder – A clean beauty favorite, this setting powder will keep you shine-free all day long.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Bronzer – I’ve been using this bronzer for contouring for years. I love shades Terracota and Earth.
NARS Blush – A cult classic I have been using for yeras. I love shades Amour and Orgasm.
Charlotte Tilbury Palette – A stunning palette with colors perfect for all year around. I love how this palette has a good selection of matte shades because those are my favorite. Also, the colors are grouped together, which makes it easy for the makeup novice to know which colors to use with what.
Viseart Palette – Definitely on the pricy end but I promise you if you purchase this palette, you won’t need any other. My main travel palette this has every color you’ll ever need. Plus, I can use the gray and brownlack shades to fill in my brows.
Urban Decay Palette – A great price point with all matte colors, this palette is a dream! I’ve been using this all summer and it transitions well into fall.
Kat Von D Liner – My holy grail eyeliner. You need this. End of discussion.
Eyebrow Gel – I use this when I don’t have time to really fill in my brows but need to do something. Love the brown color as it blends seamlessly.
Red Cherry Lashes – These are the most affordable and personally I love how these look for a more natural look. I can reuse these for about 2-3 weeks before they start falling apart. As with all lashes, you need to carefully pick off the glue from the previous use before applying. My favorite styles are 415, 523 and Wispy.
Ardell Lashes – An affordable set of mink-like lashes. These look great when you want a more dramatic look but don’t want to pay for mink lashes.
Velour Lashes – An alternative to mink but look incredible. These are a bit of a splurge but keep in mind you can re-use these many times.
Flutter Lashes – Hands down, my favorite pair of lashes in the world. Flutter Lashes generously sponsored me when I competed at Miss USA. These lashes are truly incredible and you won’t regret them.
Too Faced Liquid Lipstick: Hands down my favorite lip product and has been for two years. I have the colors Cool Girl, Child Star and Sell Out. These last forever and I can eat, drink and still trust when I go on air at 11 pm, I still look good. The color Cool Girl is a favorite for my fall beauty products.
YSL Liquid Lipstick: If I’m feeling a little luxe and want more of a pinky nude, I reach for this. The color is beautiful and applies well. The scent is also a plus!
Bobbi Brown Lipstick: When my lips are dry and need something moisturizing this is one of the lipsticks I reach for. The color payoff is great, too!
Charlotte Tilbury Pencil – One of my favorite pencils because of how creamy it is. The color pillow talk is a cult classic and a must get during the sale!
MAC Cosmetics – I love these. My favorite shades are whirl, nice n’ spicy and soar.
TOOLS OF THE TRADE
Foundation Brush – The holy grail when it comes to foundation brushes. This brush may not look special but it will apply your makeup without any streaks. I couldn’t imagine applying makeup without it or my favorite sponge.
Beauty Blender – You have to get this and you have to use it wet. I have tried similar ones and they are just not as good. I use this to smooth out my concealer, cream contour and more.
Rose Quartz Roller – I use this every night and in the morning if I have time. Use it in upward motions because our skin is like shingles. This really pushes the product into your skin.
Sensor Mirror – I have used this mirror since 2014 and couldn’t imagine doing makeup without it. The magnification can be a little scary but it really helps you apply your makeup flawlessly! I love the new collection because it comes in gold and rose gold.
L’Occitane Shea Oil – Get all of that makeup off in a silky, easy way. I pump this into my hands and rub all over my face, while also massaging to get all of my long-lasting makeup off!
Kopari Coconut Cleansing Oil: A more affordable and also clean beauty pick for cleansing oils. I’ll put three to four pumps into my hands, rub them together and massage over my face for about 30 seconds. I take care to be soft around the eyes but still making sure to get the makeup off my eyes, especially my lash glue!
Purity Cleanser: My holy grail cleanser for more than 11 years! I swear by this and if I don’t have a cleansing oil, I just cleanse with this twice for a super long period of time. This is one of the only cleansers that doesn’t dry out my face or make it feel tight and gets my face clean.
SkinCeuticals Blemish Serum – I cannot say enough good things about this product. Earlier this year, I started using another well-known brand and I broke out so badly (blog post coming on this soon). It was worse than anything I had ever encountered. This serum truly treated my breakouts and healed my skin.
SkinCeuticals C+AHA Serum – This has 15 percent vitamin c and a blend of hydroxy acids, which exfoliates and neutralizes the skin. I use this during the day after washing and before moisturizer.
Drunk Elephant Exfoliator – This feels like fire ants are eating at your skin but when you rinse it off, your skin will be baby soft. I use this two to three times a week and leave it on for 20 minutes.
Rose Quartz Roller – It’s hard to believe I didn’t hop on this bandwagon sooner. I recently got this and have noticed a huge difference. I roll after applying my serums/oils in upward motions. Your skin is like shingles, so going up pushes the product into your skin.
Peter Thomas Roth Cloud Cream – The texture and feeling of this is truly unlike any other. It’s weightless and ultra soft, while providing long lasting moisture. Definitely a must get when it comes to my fall beauty products.
L’Occitane Thirst-Quenching Gel – A great moisturizer that’s perfect for dry skin. I love how cool this feels upon application yet it really moisturizes and keeps your skin soft.
Curling Iron – Hands down my favorite curling iron. I leave this one at work and have the convertible one at home. This is a 1.25″ barrel, which is perfect for soft curls. Can go up to 410 degrees Fahrenheit.
Hair Dryer – I usually let my hair air dry but on the ocassion I have to blow dry it, this is what I use. I love how fast my hair dries with this!
Dry Shampoo – I’ve used a variety of dry shampoos and this is what I’m currently using. It does the job and doesn’t leave a lot of whitecast!
Length Strengthening Shampoo – I’m working on growing out my hair and I can definitely feel a difference in the texture and strength of my hair. My hair feels thicker and healthier, which allows it to grow!
Length Strengthening Conditioner – The accompanying conditioner to my shampoo. I use this every other week when I wash.
Deep Repair Hair Mask – I have been using this for years and swear by it. I only wash my hair once or twice a week and when I do, I use this mask. I like to shampoo my hair right away, then put this mask in so it can sit the rest of the time I’m in the shower.
St. Tropez Foam – My secret to being tan all year without exposing my skin to harmful rays for long periods of time. I apply once a week and it looks so natural. Just make sure you get all your body parts that’ll be showing.
St. Tropez Mitt – I love this mitt because you can wash it and use it again once it’s fresh and clean. I only use this to apply my self-tanner.
L’Occitane Shower Oil – I love using products with a more luxurious feel in the fall. It’s almost like enveloping myself in a hug. This shower oil has almond oil to keep your skin ultra soft and moisturized.
Body Butter – I have been using this body butter for years. It’s one of my favorite fall beauty products and the first thing I switch into when the weather gets chilly. It’s incredibly moisturizing.
