Favorite New Skin Care, Fall 2019
Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser ($8.99) was recently reformulated and now ranks as one of the gentlest cleansers at the drugstore, yet remains highly effective for removing excess oil, debris, and makeup. This liquid-to-foam formula is suitable for all skin types, even extra-sensitive skin.
Paula’s Choice DEFENSE Triple Algae Pollution Shield ($31) combines three types of algae to form a weightless pollution-neutralizing film on skin’s surface, keeping many types of harmful airborne pollutants from causing deeper damage. Suitable for all skin types, all ages.
Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil ($58) captures the CBD craze and joins it with a great blend of non-fragrant plant oils. This is an ideal skin soother and radiance-reviver when skin is acting up between seasons, but keep it handy for when the temps (and humidity) drop to stave off dehydrated skin. Note that this product is available online only, either from the brand or Sephora.com.
Favorite New Makeup, Fall 2019
BareMinerals Bounce & Blur Blush ($29) brings new technology to cheeks, as it’s not a true powder blush or a cream blush, but a “bouncy” powder that smooths on like a light cream blush but sets to a long-wearing, radiant finish from its four sunset-inspired, natural-looking colors. Perfect for creating a healthy fall flush.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Radiant Concealer ($29) may seem pricey for what it is, but this is a really concentrated, beautifully moisturizing formula that provides remarkable coverage without caking or looking dry and flat, even when applied around the eyes. The fragrance free formula has over 20 shades, including options for very light or very dark skin. Bonus: the precision tip applicator makes it easy to reach tight corners.
Whether it’s casual, lighter reds or rich Bordeaux wine shades, a riveting red is among the hottest and prettiest fall color trends. To get this from lipstick, go for Maybeline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick ($7.49) in shade Divine Wine.
Prefer the softer, shinier look of lip gloss? Try Revlon Super Lustrous The Gloss ($8.99) in shade Black Cherry.
