Fall Beauty Must-Haves

Fall has always been my favorite season. The changing colors of leaves and the slow transition to cold weather have always resonated with me. I find a lot of inspiration in the soft golds and violet reds of fall (in case you haven't noticed I tend to use gold a lot in my looks). Plus, we get to pull out those chunky sweaters, which I love oh so much.

Here are some of my current go-to items for this Fall season.

Origins Zero Oil deep pore cleanser
Smith's Rosebud Salve (lip moisturizer)
MAC lipstick in Rebel
Laura Mercier shimmerbloc in Golden Mosaic
Organix Moroccan Argan Oil for hair

Origins Zero Oil deep pore cleanser:
This is a great cleanser for oily-skin. My skin tends to be on the dry side, but has been oilier lately. When you use a bit too many exfoliants and it makes your skin produce more oil to compensate. I'd been using an exfoliating face wash that was meant to be used daily, but was a bit too harsh for my skin. Origin's Zero Oil deep pore cleanser is very lightweight, but gets the job done. It also smells great!

Smith's Rosebud Salve:
I absolutely love this stuff. I'll admit, I've never been the kind of girl to shell out over $5 for a lip balm. Chapstick has always worked just fine for my lips and no other balm has ever out-performed it. Well, I found myself at Sephora one day without my beloved Chapstick and had no choice but to pick something up -- it was HOT and my lips were very dry. Since then, Smith's Rosebud Salve has been a purse staple, especially during the colder months.

MAC lipstick in Rebel:

I have not yet taken a lip picture that does this lipstick justice. Rebel is the perfect plum-red lip for Fall. If applied the regular way, it can be very bold and in your face. I also like to tone it down by lightly pressing it to my lips so that it becomes almost like a lip stain. While there are dupes out there for this one (I own a few), they just don't do this color justice in my opinion. 

Laura Mercier shimmerbloc -  Golden Mosaic:

I like to use this bronzer/highlighter to add more definition to my face and to add a quick pop of color on the go. I use this all over my face, not only to define, but also as an eyeshadow.

Organix Moroccan Argan Oil for hair:
My hair gets pretty dry during Fall, which makes it pretty difficult to style. I've found that for my type of hair, thick and wavy/curlified, serums or oils make it more manageable. I've loved Organix for years, but only recently purchased this oil. I use it after every shower and while I style my hair. For all my hairy struggling friends, this makes a huge difference.

What are your fall beauty must-haves?
