Mel’s Fall Must Haves

Hello and welcome to another wonderful Thursday! It finally feels like fall in New Jersey, after having an insanely warm October. In celebration of fall finally arriving I wanted to share with you guys some of my fall must haves! We are going to cover a variety of topics and products so grab snack and lets get to it!

First up I want to talk about a few beauty products that are must haves for me during the coming fall months.

As soon as the weather starts to turn so does my skin! It really starts to dry out and I find myself having to use more hydrating products and really moisturizing through out the day. One of my favorite ways to do this is a hydrating face mist. I love using facial mists to hydrate and refresh. Its also an added bonus that they work really well over makeup! Two of my favorites are the Fresh Rose Floral Toner and the Herbivore Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Face Mist. If you hadn’t noticed rose is one of my favorite things so that is a main ingredient in both of these products!

Another fall must have is a good foundation. Normally during the warmer months I transition into using a tinted moisturizer or a beauty balm. So come fall its super important for me to find a new foundation that will work well for my changing skin. I normally like to find two favorites, one that it more full coverage/matte and one that is more medium/luminous. My full coverage option these fall is the YSL All hours foundation. This foundation creates a instantly a flawless look by blurring pores and fine lines. I love this foundation because it gives a beautiful matte finish but doesn’t cling to any dryness. My pick for medium coverage would be the Clinique Even Better Glow foundation. This has quickly become one of my favorites! It gives a nice light coverage and gives the skin a beautiful lit form within glow.

My final beauty must have is a good fall lip color. My favorite way to take a makeup look from natural to glam is to add a nice mauve lip. It also turns out that mauve toned lip colors are great for the fall months. My two favorites right now are the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick in Chutney and the Nars Velvet Lip Glide in Bound. Both of these products are super pigmented and the formulas are some of my favorites. They both aren’t a full matte lip (more of a comfort matte) but they still give amazing color payoff and have a long wear time.

Lets move onto some fashion picks! My favorite thing about fall is the weather and being able to cozy up in a nice big sweater.

Which leads us into my first fashion must have…you guessed it big cozy sweaters. Now I don’t discriminate (except for turtlenecks, I am not a fan of those), but I do like pull overs and cardigans alike. My favorite place to find nice sweaters is American Eagle. They always have super soft and fluffy cardigans and one of my faves this season is the AE Waffle Knit Boyfriend Cardigan. Another place to look for cozy and fashion forward sweaters is Forever 21. I like to go here when there is a certain style that is trendy for the season. They always have super cute stuff for relatively cheap.

I love to be comfortable during the fall and one of my favorites ways to do this and still be fashionable is living in leggings. Im not ashamed to admit it! If I could wear one thing for the rest of my life it would be my Lulu Lemon Align Pant II. Now I know these are kinda pricey but to be honest they are the best leggings I have ever owned (and believe me I’ve tried a lot). They just smooth every thing out while still being super comfortable! If you want to treat yourself and invest in a good pair of leggings I would definitely recommend these!

My final fall favorite is a good pair of boots. My all time favorite pair of boots that I own is my Frye Melissa Button Boots. They are super comfortable and great to wear all day! But the thing I love most about them is that they pretty much go with anything and make putting cute fall outfits together even easier!


I hope you guys enjoyed all of my faves for the fall! Let me know what some of your favorites for the fall season are!

xoxo Mel
