Arguably equally as fun (if not more) as revamping your clothing wardrobe for fall is updating your makeup bag, both inside and out! Here are my picks for the best products to have you headed back to school (or the office) looking your cutest.
Let’s start with everyone’s favorite — nails! Make a statement with our ever popular I Get Around Nail Wraps, a brilliant ncLA x Melody Ehsani collab, as seen in our new lookbook modeled by the inaugural This Miss KL, Olivia Lo (coming soon!). These easy-to-apply nail stickers come with enough designs to satisfy even the most adventurous nail art junkies. When you don’t have time to sit for a full DIY mani, LAQA & CO. comes to the rescue with their amazing Nail Polish Pens. Choose Incestuous, a pale lilac shade that you can brush on in a breeze for a touch of color. Bonus? It’s a light enough shade that any goofs will go unnoticed.
Brighten up around your eyes with new Lime Crime Magic Dust in Diva, a soft, sparkling champagne. The loose eyeshadow is super-wearable for any skin tone and can even double as a cheekbone highlighter. Use your pinkie or a small eyeshadow brush to apply a touch of shimmer to the inner corner of your eye for an instant boost, and a blush brush to gently sweep the Magic Dust above your cheeks for a glow that can’t be beat. For lashes that don’t stop, sweep on Stila’s Stay All Day Mascara in Black. Not only will you get gorgeous lash definition, but it actually lasts! Goodbye raccoon eyes; hello beautiful, lush lashes.
Red lipstick has long been a staple in every glamour girl’s arsenal. Lime Crime knocks it out of the park with Retrofuturist, a perfectly opaque, bright-ass cherry red. Go full-throttle straight out of the tube for highest impact, or dab it over your regular lip balm with your ring finger for a more sheer wash of the color. Either way, red lips are here to stay and the epitome of classic beauty. For less bold of a statement, try Stila’s Convertible Color in Petunia, a creamy petal pink. These compacts are one of my absolute favorite beauty products — use them on cheeks and lips for a subtle but pretty dose of color in a flash. The best part? The adorable case is colored according to shade and houses a perfect little mirror for on-the-go touch-ups. Beautiful!
Keep it all together in style with the colorful and boldly printed Joyrich Elegant Affair Zip Makeup Bag. If cute is more your style, check out this adorable new Harajuku Lovers Cosmetic Case, complete with lashes and a beauty mark (did I mention it’s cute?).
