Our 5 Favorite Fall Beauty Products

Beauty

Now that summer’s over and we’re officially indulging in PSLs and fuzzy sweaters, we need to switch up our beauty products to match the season. It’s time to admit our vacation tans have finally worn off, our skin is getting drier, and our hair is probably suffering from months of too much sun. Here are some of my favorite products for embracing autumn this year.

For your hair...

 

MOROCCAN GOLD SERIES TREATMENT MASK
This product is a miracle worker. If you have dry and damaged hair from too much chlorine and sun in the summertime or harsh cold come fall, use this product to rebind the proteins in each strand. After just one use, you’ll notice your hair looking healthy and smooth.

For your eyes...

 

MORPHE 35OM NATURE GLOW EYESHADOW PALETTE

This is my absolute favorite eyeshadow palette. The colors are very pigmented, so you won’t feel like you’re constantly layering and dropping color onto unwanted areas of your face (what a waste). All of the colors in this palette are great for fall, and it features both matte and shimmery shades for you to play around with! Plus, it’s affordable compared to similar palettes on the market.

For your face...

 

IT BYE BYE UNDER EYE

I don’t know about you, but I find myself looking *extra*  tired during the fall and winter months. Maybe it’s because I’ve lost my summer glow, or maybe my body is confused because the sun goes down earlier. Whatever it is, this IT concealer has been a lifesaver for hiding my dark circles (and any other unwanted spots). It’s also anti-aging, waterproof, and comes in 48 shades so you can find the perfect match for your skin tone.

MAC SATIN LIPSTICK - TWIG

A “soft muted brownish pink,” this shade is perfect for fall. It’s natural enough to wear every day, but pigmented enough to layer for a more dramatic effect. I love this shade because it goes well with every outfit and can be worn on any occasion.

Foundational Steps to Cultivating a Daily Self-love Practice

Self-care
Expert Advice
Personal Growth
Wellness

When you think of self-love what do you think of? Bubble baths, walks on the beach, facemasks, or what? Self-love can mean so many different things but when we think about self-love, we have to acknowledge loving ourselves both on the outside and on the inside. The way that we show ourselves love is one of the most important things we will ever do. 

How do we treat ourselves? How do we talk to ourselves? What foods are we putting into our bodies? How are we thinking about our overall well-being when practicing self-love?

As self-love defines and redefined itself for you over the years, here are a few foundational tips to think about when easing into your self-love journey.

 

Step 1: Learn to set boundaries

Don’t we love this one? Loving ourselves has a lot to do with the boundaries that we have for ourselves, with others, and for others. Take time to think about your own emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual needs when setting boundaries that reflect your personal needs. Boundaries don’t have to be big and scary; they are here to remind us that you get to have your lived experience and still have expectations about how you’d like to be treated and what you’d like to feel.

When thinking about your boundaries, ask yourself:

  • How do I feel without having boundaries?
  • What would I like to have boundaries around?
  • Are my boundaries actual boundaries or am I creating walls in my life?
  • How do I plan to uphold my boundaries?
Step 2: Cultivate self-compassion

In a world where perfectionism and curated existences have been rewarded, begin to cultivate compassion for yourself. You are a soul having a human experience and it’s totally okay if things are not perfect. 

Mindfulness exercises such as Breathwork, self-care activities, and self-compassion, all help train the mind, emotions, and even the body’s stress chemicals to be able to deal with undesired situations. Self-compassion means, can you be nice to yourself? Can you find empathy and kindness for yourself in the middle of what feels chaotic, stressful, or unwanted? Self-compassion means that we get to make mistakes, have our plans not work out the way that we wanted, and we still get to celebrate that we are doing the best that we can and it is enough.

When thinking about self-compassion, ask yourself:

  • How do I respond to stressful situations?
  • How hard am I on myself?
  • How do I celebrate myself?
  • How do I show myself kindness?
Step 3: Nourish yourself

In every sense of the word “nourishment”, begin to learn what nourishes you and what depletes you. Nourishment doesn’t just mean food for yourself; it means that whatever you are consuming whether it be media, podcasts, people, energy, information, etc. all impact the way that we think, feel, and experience life.

Nourishing yourself definitely goes right along the lines of having your boundaries intact and practicing self-compassion. 

When thinking about nourishment, ask yourself:

  • How do I nourish my emotional well-being?
  • How do I nourish my mental well-being?
  • How do I nourish my physical well-being?
  • How do I nourish my spiritual well-being?
  • How do I nourish my social well-being?
  • How do I nourish my financial well-being?

That’s it. Those are the foundational steps to cultivating a self-love practice that you can ease into your daily routine. Come back to these questions often, because like anything else, self-love is a practice and it takes effort, time, and intention to maintain.
