Back-to-School Beauty Essentials for Every Makeup PersonalityAugust 12, 2022
Soon enough, we’ll officially be in the fall season, and for many of us, that means we’ll be headed back to school and the office. Blame it on our love for beauty, but we’re always game for a makeup bag refresh, especially at the start of a new season. If you’re unsure of where to start, we’ve curated the perfect fall beauty routine for you based on your aesthetic and lifestyle. Ahead, check out our beauty must-haves for fall.
If you like to keep clutter to a minimum and get out the door faster, opt for liquid and cream products that require minimal blending. We love the L'Oréal Paris True Match Hyaluronic Tinted Serum for its hydrating formula and breathable yet buildable coverage. Before you head out, toss the L'Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Balm-in-Lipstick in your bag to give your lips a touch of color and shine.
The Drama QueenAll about the drama? We’ve got you. The Maybelline New York Super Stay Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipcolor comes in ten punchy colors with dramatic, long-lasting shine. All you have to do is shake the tube, apply like a regular liquid lipstick and be wowed by the 16-hour staying power and glossy finish. To amp up the drama on your eyes, reach for a high-pigment liner that lasts all day, like the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Waterproof Eye Pencil. It comes in a rainbow of colors and finishes, from classic matte to multidimensional and sparkly. And before you move on to foundation, start with the right base: the NYX Professional Makeup Marshmellow Smoothing Face Primer helps smooth texture and extends the wear of your makeup for up to 16 hours.
The Luxe Beauty Enthusiast
We can give you two good reasons to splurge this season. The first: the Lancôme Lash Idôle Mascara, which comes in a sleek tube that will look so chic settled in your makeup bag. The formula adds volume and lift to every lash, even straight and stubborn types. Seal in your final look with a setting spray — the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray is our go-to for makeup that does. not. budge.
The Budget-Savvy Makeup LoverSometimes, it’s best not to mess with a classic. We’ve been obsessed with the Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer for a while now because it can act as a spot corrector, dark circle eraser and even a highlight or contour product, depending on the shades you choose. It’s also super budget-friendly. Another favorite from the drugstore aisle: the NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss. The beloved lip gloss formula is available in 31 shades, perfect for topping bare lips or any of your favorite lip colors.
The MaximalistPerfect any multicolor graphic eye look with the Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Sticks. Available in bold shades like lime green and cobalt blue, there’s no shying away from pigment here. For even more drama, coat your lashes in a high-impact mascara, like the Lancôme Monsieur Big Volumizing Mascara. To make sure your funky eye look stays center of attention, finish off with a neutral lip, like one of the nude shades in the NYX Professional Makeup Line Loud Vegan Longwear Lip Liner.
