Beauty in the Bag: Fall EssentialsBy Shahada Karim | December 14th, 2014 | Category: Beauty, Gift Guides & Gift Suites | Comments Off on Beauty in the Bag: Fall Essentials
‘Tis the season for holiday parties both formal and playful. And although it’s a novel concept to be dressed top to tail for every single shindig, let’s face it: you don’t really have the time. The good news is, you can put on your best face in the car between picking up drinks for the party and knocking on the front door.
NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
Since this product hit the market several years ago, many have attempted (and failed) to imitate its ease of use and flawless finish. Although it’s marketed as a tinted moisturizer (with an spf of 35), this base covers more like a foundation and smooths imperfections with a single swipe. It comes in a convenient tube (perfect for a makeup bag) and will blend easily without the help of lights or a really good mirror (the rearview will do just fine).
Celebrity Makeup Artist Charlotte Tilbury wants you to be flawless in everything you do, and her intentions are never more evident than in her retouching pen. With just a few clicks, the pen delivers a potent concealer that conceals and highlights under eyes, around the nose and mouth and even the brow area. The formula blends seamlessly and sets almost immediately. A little goes a very long way, and it stays put until you take it off.
Bobbi Brown’s pressed powder compact is still unequalled in terms of natural coverage and staying power. The color selection accounts for over and undertones, so your perfect match looks as if it was custom made for your unique shade.
This felt- tipped liner is virtually fool proof: the wand goes exactly where you want it to, and easily transfers ink black liner beautifully and effortlessly. We’re especially fond of the latex finish and incredible staying power
It took them longer than the average makeup company, but Chanel finally debuted the perfect mascara. Since it hit the market in 2013, the competition has been trying to keep up. More than any other formulation in the repertoire, Volume de Chanel delivers on every promise. The rich formula lengthens, thickens, separates and curls. Talk about your quadruple threat
The latest addition from Tom Ford can be used as a stain (just dab it on and layer with fingers) or a full matte lipstick. The formula is silky (won’t dry out lips) and easily lasts through dinner, drinks, and lots of air kisses. Black Dahlia can go from demure to daring: it’s up to you how much you want to layer this deep berry color.
So smooth, conceal, highlight and stain to your heart’s desire. Just make sure the car is in park before you get started.
