Fall ’17 Beauty Edit

I am more eager for fall beauty than I ever have been in my life.

I’m not over the fresh-faced look just yet, but I am ready to be able to wear makeup without the fear it melting off. This year I am particularly into creating simple looks with dramatic colours. I have been favouring monochromatic makeup and love how it is carrying into a new season, with bolder colours.

These are my top five essentials for Fall 2017.

Chanel Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow in Desert Rouge ($40)

I have been obsessed with red eyeshadow ever since Chanel’s Le Rouge Fall 2016 campaign with Kristen Stewart. I think it is so sexy and bold, especially when paired with a red lip. This shade has a subtle touch of glitter in it that gives the colour some dimension. This fall, wearing crimson hues from head-to-toe is a huge trend. Take it one step further with a matching monochromic makeup look.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer($50)

There are few things as horrible as going to the washroom halfway through the day and noticing that your foundation has caked up around your dry patches. A little extra hydration is a must in the fall to prevent flakey-textured skin. The Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer is a primer and moisturizer all in one. It has a thin consistency like the regular Photo Finish Primer so it won’t pill when you apply other products on top of it.

Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow in Shade 14 ($22)

Bold monochromatic eyes have been a favourite look of mine for quite a while. I started wearing a lot of orange eyeshadow this summer. This eye pigment is the perfect way to vamp up the look for night time. You can use it alone for a light wash of shimmer, or apply it with glitter glue or MAC Fix + to create a metallic finish. The colour is so perfect for fall, very pumpkin spice up your life. TIP: If you are using loose pigments, do your eye makeup first and then your base. Otherwise, you will have so much fall out to try to clean up.

The Ordinary High-Coverage Foundation ($7)

Who doesn’t love a good matte foundation for the fall? Even if this foundation didn’t have such a modest price tag, I would still be as obsessed with it. The light-weight formula gives you a beautiful medium coverage that can be built up. It doesn’t look like you have foundation on, but it still hides discoloration from acne and scarring. I also have the Serum Foundation ($7), which is also incredible. It has a dewier finish and is perfect for people looking for a light coverage product that will even out their overall skin tone.

Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in Sargasso ($35)

Backstage at New York Fashion Week, grey nail polish made an appearance at the Jenny Packham show and I have been obsessed with it ever since. This limited edition shade by Chanel is a chic alternative to black nails. It is still edgy but looks a bit softer than the chipped black nails I would wear during my angsty teen years. Shop similar shades here: Marc Jacobs, O.P.I., and Sally Hansen.
