I love the fun of summertime, but there’s just something about the fall season that makes me want to do everything differently. I tend to take deeper breaths with the cooler breeze. I also tend to spend a little more time outdoors with the gentler sun and the changing colors. I might even tend to love a little deeper around this time—just because I think fall is just absolutely romantic. The truth is we all change just a little bit around the fall season; the change in weather brings about changes in our bodies that we all need to pay attention to. This simply means that most of us will need to change our usual beauty routines and styles to accommodate for all the changes. Here are my top ten absolute beauty favorites for this year’s fall season—maybe you’ll fall in love with these just as I have.

Top Ten Fall Beauty Favorites for 2018

1. Skin cleanser: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel

With the dry fall air comes drier skin—even for those who normally tend to have normal or even oily skin. Neutrogena’s formula uses hyaluronic acid to help keep skin hydrated throughout the day. It also helps that it comes in gel form; it’s gentle enough for the most sensitive skin but effective enough to remove your darkest fall makeup.

2. Skin moisturizer: Olay Regenerist Whip Facial Moisturizer

I never like the feel of heavy moisturizers on my skin, and this Olay moisturizer is whipped enough that it feels like cream or butter when you put it on. It also happens to be SPF 25—very important to protect the face—so you’ll never have to make the excuse that you forgot to put sunscreen on!

3. Skin care: Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion SPF 30

If you’re like me, you probably like to spend a little more time outdoors during the fall season. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that the sun isn’t so bad during the fall just because it’s not as hot outside. If you know that you’ll be outdoors at all, make sure you’re protected regardless. Aveeno’s Protect + Hydrate lotion will shield your skin without stuffing it up.

4. Skin care: Herbivore Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish

Blame it on the dry season again, but you’ll need to exfoliate more now that fall is here. I think Herbivore’s body polish is just perfect for exfoliating because it hydrates your skin at the same time. It happens to smell marvelous too!

5. Makeup: NYX Strobe of Genius Highlighting Palette

Just because summer’s over doesn’t mean that you can’t have that glow anymore. Feed your radiance this fall with NYX’s highlighting palette. You’ll get a selection of glimmer and shine from the subtlest silver to the boldest gold.

6. Makeup: NARS Semi Matte Lipstick in Red Lizard

Red is definitely in this fall. Matte is in too. NARS’ Red Lizard shade is the perfect deeper red for the season. Pair it up with nudes and browns, and you’ll be ready for a classic look that can last you throughout the entire season.

7. Makeup: Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow – Rose Gold Retro

Fall makeup is all about the shimmery and shiny, and one of my favorites for the season is Stila’s Rose Gold Retro Liquid Eyeshadow. I can honestly say that this is probably one shade that will look great on any skin tone. You can apply it heavily for a dramatic nighttime look or spread it thin for a glamorous daytime vibe. 

8. Hair Care: Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo

I absolutely love Oribe! And if you have damaged hair from all the summer’s sun, Oribe’s Gold Lust shampoo is the best way to nurse your locks back to health. It’s also a great shampoo to save and protect your hair from the coming harshness of winter.

9. Hair Color: Blonde Balayage

Some experts believe that blonde will always be in; and it seems like one of the fiercest hair color trends this season is blonde balayage. I love the idea of combining darker fall shades with blonde balayage; and the best part about it is you can go as bold as you want or as subtle as you need—it’s your call!

10. Hair Style: Love, Beauty & Planet Rose Essential Hair Oil

Add some easy luster to your hair this fall by using this Rose Essential Hair Oil from Love, Beauty & Planet. It smells incredibly wonderful, and it’ll give your hair much needed life after all that beach damage. This oil might be all the styling you’ll ever need this fall, especially if you want to keep it all as natural as possible.
