L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Reds of Worth Lipstick in Lovely Red

A bold, blue-undertoned red is a holiday makeup staple for me, so I was super stoked to learn that L’Oréal Paris was dropping a whole new line of reds for this holiday season, including a very gorgeous carmine hue I always opt for. Lovely Red is by far my favorite because not only does it instantly brighten up my whole complexion, it’s also totally smudge- and transfer-proof, making it ideal for holiday gatherings both IRL and virtual.

Tower 28 SunnyDays SPF 30 Tinted Sunscreen Foundation

As if the makeup gods have answered my prayers — this sunscreen-foundation hybrid is the first of its kind to be approved by the National Eczema Association! It has buildable light-to-medium coverage, has good-for-your-skin ingredients like aloe vera, prickly pear and white sage, not to mention it’s SPF 30. A must have any time year round, but especially during the colder months when my eczema acts up.

Huda Beauty Rose Quartz Face Gloss

Dewy, luminous, nearly bare skin is my forever skin goal, so I was intrigued to hear that Huda Beauty was releasing a “face gloss” — mostly because, what is that? Huda describes its all-new product as a universally flattering, non-sticky, high-shine gloss that leaves behind a harmonizing highlight. It comes in the form of a clear gel mixed with champagne and warm pink pearls that create a quartz-effect that lends to its name. I’m patiently waiting for mine to arrive in the mail so I can share my full thoughts and maybe a selfie or two.

Essie Toy to the World

A nail-biter since childhood, it takes a really gorgeous nail polish to get me to leave my hands alone for longer than a few days. Lately, I’ve been reaching for this one by Essie, a punchy coral-red that warms up my skin and enhances what little is left of my summer glow. The brand’s signature cream formula glides on totally streak-free and opaque in just one coat, and I get a little more cheerful just by looking at my nails when I have this color on!

Giorgio Armani My Way Intense Eau de Parfume

I don’t typically go for floral fragrances because they tend to be a little too delicate for me — especially as I transition into moodier fall scents. But I was completely enamored from the first spritz of this complex perfume. Notes of light tuberose and orange blossom are warmed with sandalwood and vanilla creating an intoxicating fragrance that is inviting and sensual while still feeling light and carefree. This is one scent I’ll buy again and again — and luckily the bottle is refillable so I feel good knowing that reusing the bottle will help cut carbon emissions. 

Blossom & Stone The Signature Candle

Scattered with rose quartz crystals that have been charged during a full moon, this comforting candle radiates positivity every time it’s lit. Warm notes of amber, sandalwood and sage envelop the room in a warm embrace to create a “good vibes only” space — which we all need while still working from home (good energy only!) Once the candle is completely burned through you can repurpose the vessel and add the crystals to your collection.

IT Cosmetics Hero Eyeshadow Sticks

Eyeshadow sticks are my absolute favorite — they’re low-maintenance, long-wearing and great for preventing fallout from getting stuck in my contact lens-wearing eyes. These no-tug waterproof eyeshadow sticks have quickly become my go-to for a buildable wash of color between meetings and errands. My favorite part: the formula is crease-proof, so it doesn’t settle into the lines on my hooded eyelids. 

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540

I can assure you that this buzzy perfume is a cult-favorite or a reason. The fragrance’s warm, sensual notes of jasmine, saffron and cedar linger long after you spritz it on and pretty much guarantee you’ll receive compliments every time you wear it.

YSL Beauty Rouge Velours - Le Vestiaire Des Parfums

I’m not usually a fan of floral fragrances as I tend to gravitate towards warmer, more cozy or spicy scents. But there’s something special about this rose fragrance. The addition of patchouli gives it a bit of an herbal flair, and the rose isn’t too overpowering or heady. If you’re looking for a floral fragrance that feels appropriate for the cool weather, give this one a go. 

Lawless Conseal The Deal Long-Wear Full-Coverage Foundation 

When I first got my hands on this foundation, I couldn’t imagine that a consistency as fluid as this one would provide significant coverage. Even though it feels almost like applying water to the skin, it’s a buildable formula that looks demi-matte upon the initial application. Throughout the day, it wears beautifully without emphasizing my naturally greasy complexion. The fast application and natural finish on the skin have made this a staple foundation in my rotation.
