Fall Beauty Must-Haves

My sister (roommate) is going to read this post and be concerned because my beauty products already take up our whole bathroom and there is no room to spare. That being said, I think it's important to try different products until you find ones you re-order over and over again - I will never be without my Clinique eye makeup remover! I also think that the different seasons call for different products to keep you looking your best. For example, I have notoriously dry and chapped lips and need to up my lip balm game in the winter. I'm excited to try RMS beauty's coconut cream and Korres new Advanced Therapy Sugar Lip Balm (I love their other lip balms, as well).
 
For hair, I recently got my haircut at Salon Benjamin in West Hollywood and loved all of the products they used. I am particularly excited to try out the R+Co cleansing conditioner, which got amazing reviews on Birchbox, as well as a bunch of the other R+Co products. They have great packaging! Speaking of great packaging, how beautiful is the Philip Kingsley pre-shampoo elasticizer treatment?? I have a mini version of the gold Aerin brush and it really adds a little glam pop to my vanity and works as well as the Mason Pearson version.
 
For makeup, I am obsessed with the Naked Smokey Palette, a MUST-HAVE for beauty/eye-shadow junkies and I love the violet hues of the Laura Mercier one below. I also want to try out a bold lip this fall and the rich hue of the Nars lipstick below may just fit the bill.
 
For skin, it's all about moisture. I have heard amazing things about the Skin Inc. line and plan on trying out the custom blend kit. My youngest sister loves the deep moisture that Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration lotion provides and it's a great addition for the dry winter months.
 
What are you must-try's for Fall? Do let me know!

Best Boots

I love my Stuart Weitzman 50/50 boots. I invested in them 2 years ago and they are my go to over jeans or with a dress all Fall and Winter (and into spring). While a bit pricey, I know if I take care of them they will last forever. With the popularity of the 50/50's, many brands have come out with their own versions and brands like Sam Edelman and Dolce Vita come pretty close with a much lower price tag. Below are some of my favorite classic boots this season at both high and low(er) price points.

Midweek Must-Haves

I'm heading to New York next week and below are the things I wish I were packing! I can't wait to see my friends and enjoy some crisp Fall days. I love LA but it's fun to get a little seasonal every once in a while.
