Women over 40 beauty, skincare, fashion, fitness and lifestyle, Keeping it Real

There’s a crispness in the air of fall that I love so I’ve come up with a list of my Five Fall Favorites. These are new fall products or colors that I am loving right now and are a constant in my makeup bag. What are your favorites this fall?

Prescriptives: The Daring eyeshadow palette. My colorprint is yellow/orange and with this palette I heart the beautiful brown, purplish/plum and the taupish silver shades. With purple being a hot color this fall, this palette works on so many levels to bring out the gorgeous shades of fall and make you look fabulous.

Nars: Cordura shadow duo. These are also two more gorgeous eye shadows for fall. A golden brown and brownish grey in shimmer, but not too much shimmer for someone over 40. A nice addition to the fall collection.

Bobbi Brown: Long-wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Mauve. I swear by Bobbi’s gel eyeliners. They go on smoothly and stay put all day long without any touch ups, so your eyes look just as great at 6:00 AM as they do at 6:00 PM. This Black Mauve shade is a deep plumish brown with just a hint of shimmer.

Armani: Lipwax in #4 is my shade this fall. #4 is a deep raspberry shade that is a deeper version of my natural lip color. I typically am not a fan of lip color in pots. I don’t like to always use a lip brush and some pots are too gooey to use your finger. Apply this with either a brush or your fingertip because it is a smooth, easy color to apply. Waxy in texture, yet it looks like a stain when its applied. A great round pot with a mirror inside to make on-the-go applications a breeze.

Chanel: Nail color in Fantastic, and that it is. Fantastic is a deep plum, but not so dark that you question whether someone over 40 should be wearing it. Friendlier than the cult favorite Vamp, Fantastic is a limited edition and I highly suggest if you can still find it, pick it up.
