A new season doesn’t just signal a new wardrobe—it also calls for a beauty-routine revamp. Below are ways to affordably make a fall-friendly transition with your makeup, hair and lots more.
Psst … to see our segment on CBS Austin about the products in this article, check out this video!
Let’s start with a fragrance.
I always recommend switching up your fragrance twice a year—once in the spring and again in the fall. My favorite new perfume is DKNY Nectar Love ($98 at Ulta). It’s the latest from DKNY and is a floral, fruity gourmand with a unique blend of honeycomb and neroli. Plus, the bottle is beautiful and meant to be displayed.

Moving on to skin care.
Fall is also a great time to reconsider what your skin needs. These are new additions from the Guerlain collection. The luxurious brand has expanded upon its coveted Abeille Royale range to introduce Youth Watery Oil and Black Bee Honey Balm. These complex anti-aging products offer the most powerful repairing properties in the world. The Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil ($98 at Sephora) is enriched with fizzing microdrops that infuse and illuminate the skin from the inside out to instantly plump and smooth. It’s the first anti-aging step in any skin care routine and a must-have for lasting youthful skin.
The Abeille Royale Black Bee Honey Balm ($56 at Nordstrom) contains an ultra-high concentration of pure black bee honey to rapidly replenish dry and weakened skin. The formula has an ultra-nourishing waxy balm texture with a non-greasy matte finish. It protects the skin against external aggressions while maintaining comfort. Use the balm on your face, nostrils and dry body areas like your elbows and ankles. It is the perfect travel companion and I’ve become obsessed since I’m always on the road.

Let’s get a little colorful!
I like to switch up my lip color and my nail color in the fall. Here are two great options for lipsticks. The first is from Cle de Peau. These are ultra-luxurious lipsticks with petal-shaped tips that provide lips with vibrant, luminous HD color and rich-lasting moisture. The lipstick gives a semi-matte finish that lasts for eight hours and offers youthfully smooth, full-looking lips. There are 14 available shades.
Second are these Urban Decay lipsticks ($17 at Sephora). They provide unbelievable color with just one swipe and feature an array of addictive shades—more than 100 to be exact. Each shade goes on smoothly, hugs lips and feels seriously comfortable. Plus, the lipsticks are packed with nourishing ingredients like aloe vera, jojoba and avocado oils to nourish and soften lips.

Third, because you always need multiple makeup types! I’m new to Wander Beauty. It’s the first travel-inspired, luxury color cosmetics brand. The deluxe products are made of high-performance (and cruelty-free!) formulas that deliver internationally inspired innovation. Co-founder supermodel Lindsay Ellingson traveled the world for work and ended up experimenting with tons of beauty products before creating the line, and she now still travels the world to source formulas and delivery systems. Wander Beauty has everything you need if you’re traveling or staying put, from liners and shadows to lipsticks and even travel-friendly kits that won’t take up a lot of space but pack a big punch in terms of colors!
It’s a great time to try a new style!
This is the T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand ($270 at SkinStore). It’s one tool with three barrels providing endless styling possibilities. The set comes with three easily interchangeable barrels to create playful beachy waves, perfectly defined spiral curls or full-bodied glamour waves and everything in between. It has five heat settings for versatile styling for all hair types.

Why not try a new toothpaste this fall?
We rarely talk about oral care, but taking care of your gums and teeth is just as important as taking care of your skin. This is a new brand called Hello. It’s a naturally friendly toothpaste that uses effective, thoughtful ingredients so delicious you’ll rush to brush, they say. The brand is the brainchild of the co-founder of eos, those really cute spherical lip balms. There’s a whole slew of offerings, from sensitivity relief to whitening. There’s even a line for kids. And I have to tell you: I tried the product and love it. Tastes awesome, prevents cavities, whitens my teeth, and I want to show it off because it looks great in my bathroom! Can’t ask for much more!
