This Season's 7 Best Beauty Products

Experimenting with fall beauty trends.

The power of makeup is most impressive in its ability to transform. After speaking to local makeup experts and scrolling through the perfectly curated pages of our favorite celebrities, fashion influencers and bloggers, we were inspired to get in front of a mirror and try out seasonal trends such as a burgundy lip, metallic lids, bold brows and monochromatic techniques. Put your best face forward with these products this season.

 

 

 

1. Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Contour Concealer, $27, Ulta Every gal has her secrets, and this double-duty concealer helps her keep them. The hydrating, longwearing formula delivers natural, radiant coverage across all skin types so you can instantly brighten and cover acne, dark circles and redness while softening the look of pores and fine lines. Powered by Amazonian clay and conditioning mango seed and shea butters, the nutrient-rich concealer helps promote skin elasticity and illumination with each crease-free application.

 

 

 

2. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, $23, Sephora Lash maximalism rocked the runway this season … think doll-like, ’60s-inspired eyes. It's all about the thick eyelashes on both top and bottom and eye-popping eyeliner. The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is intensely black and volumizing with an hourglass-shaped brush that separates, coats and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection. The brush was designed with extra-stiff bristles to maximize the performance of this carbon black, collagen-fueled formula, and a film-forming polymer provides smudge-proof, all-day wear.

 

 

 

3. NARS Audacious Lipstick in Bette, $32, Sephora While a traditional red lip is still trending, a great alternative is burgundy, which adds a mysterious edge to your fall look. NARS Audacious lipsticks are something of a gem among the lipstick-obsessed. If you should get any color though, let it be this delightfully dark Bette. From first swipe, you’ll notice how well the color sticks to your lips and the creamy matte formula feels like air.

 

 

 

4. Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel, $22, Beauty Brands Bold, overstated brow trends have some a little intimidated. Ease into the style with Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel. Formulated with nourishing botanicals and oils, Brow Gel keeps unruly brows set all day, promotes new hair growth and soothes skin. It can be worn alone or layered over brow powder or pencil for eyebrows that stay in place all day. This luxurious, lightweight gel is never sticky, won't flake and will set your perfect brow effortlessly.

5. Chantecaille Le Chrome Monte Carlo Luxe Eye Duo, $58, Neiman Marcus Shimmery eyelids are all the rage right now. Sensuous in feel and luxurious in application, the crease-free and ultra-blendable formula of Chantecaille Le Chrome Monte Carlo Luxe Eye Duo can be applied dry for a sheer wash of metallic radiance or dampened for a liquid-metal effect. Offering true versatility and adjustable color, the duos can be used to create a variety of eye-catching looks, ranging from dramatic to demure.

6. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder, $34, Macy’s Setting powder is a godsend. What’s the use of applying makeup that won’t stay on your face? MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder locks in foundation and concealer so that there are no cracks or ripples on your cheeks. The powder has been slow-baked, with low-level pearlised mineral pigments for a smooth, satin finish that creates natural-looking dimension and sheer coverage. An array of shades seamlessly unify with a range of skin tones, with a 77-mineral complex and vitamin E helping to improve moisture levels and prevent caking and settling.

 

 

 

7. Chanel Le Blanc De Chanel Multi-Use Illuminating Base, $48, Nordstrom As we move into the cooler months, skin tends to lose the healthy glow from summer. For a radiant, dewy finish, try Chanel's Le Blanc De Chanel Multi-Use Illuminating Base. It manages to mattify skin while also providing a glow without even the slightest hint of sparkle or shimmer — as well as evening out discolored areas. It’s also great mixed with foundation for extra radiance and staying power.
