Fall Skincare, Hair and Makeup Essentials

My haircare and skincare needs are drastically different depending on the season and, as I am a confessed "product junkie," I am a-okay with this. Now that I have color-treated hair ( I know! bizarre for me!) and have a keratin treatment (pictures to follow, I promise!), I have to make sure to use sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to make sure it doesn't strip out the color or keratin. In terms of skin care, I like to try new things to see how my skin reacts. Below are some hair, skin and makeup products I am loving this fall.


Skin Care
My skin is combination with a strong tendency to be dry so I am constantly searching for the perfect daily moisturizer and serum. These two products from Lancome are exceptional. While a bit on the pricey side, the serum goes on and immediately makes my skin feel softer and fresher and when I follow with the lotion I get a perfect light-weight moisture.

I adore Skin Ceuticals products and think they're worth every penny. There is a lot of science behind them, after all, and it is the brand of choice for dermatologists. I recently ordered the toner, cleanser and exfoliator and am excited to try them out. I'll keep you posted on those!

I also bought this Murad Blackhead and pore clearing duo. I don't know about all you NYC'ers but I have had the most clogged pores, especially on my nose, since moving here. I will try anything that works if you guys have any suggestions!

Makeup
While there is technically no "need" per se to switch up my makeup seasonally, I just can't help myself (especially with great new eye shadows in rich fall hues!) I've recently started filling in my brows a bit and it makes them look a bit more tailored and full for when I go out.  Don't you love the rich hues of the bare minerals eye shadow palette below?? 

So I haven't tried this Becca brush yet but heard it is AMAZING and cuts down your makeup application time by a lot. I love a good cream eye shadow pencil and Sephora is doing a deal on these Makeup is Forever ones. I couldn't say no... The Benefit mascara makes my lashes hugeee so if you're in the market for a new mascara definitely try this one out. 

On my lips I've been wearing this Laura Mercier weightless lip color, which I love, and different colors of the Nars pencil. My favorites are "Never Say Never" and "Roman Holiday." They're not traditional "Fall Colors" but I love them. The Smashbox under eye brightener did wonders when I tried it on in Sephora so I decided to add it to my ever-growing makeup collection. Do you guys switch up your makeup for Fall? Any good Fall eyeshadow palettes?

Hair
These Loreal shampoos and conditioners are great for girls on a budget and keep my hair so soft without stripping it of its color and texture. The blow dryer is from Harry Josh and apparently cuts down drying by a lot. It's gotten rave reviews on other blogs but I'm not in the market for a new hair dryer so I thought I'd share with all of you. That being said, if any of you have used it and it's life changing, let me know because I couldddd be in the market if you twist my arm...
