I’ve been meaning to share my fall beauty must haves for a while – especially since I’ve been receiving so many questions about my routine and favorite products on Insta! For as long as I can remember, Nordstrom has been my go to destination for all my beauty related services and products. A few months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting the entire Charlotte Tilbury makeup team at the Nordstrom Grove counter and I fell in love with 3 products: the Full Fat Lashes mascara, the Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face Sculpt and Highlight, and the Magic Eye Rescue cream. This mascara has been a GAME changer in my beauty routine. I like to apply 3 coats (I wait at least 5 minutes to apply the last coat.). Someone asked me if I had fake lashes on the other day – and I about fell over – such a compliment! This highlighter is THE BOMB DOT COM and it’s so easy to apply (you can check out Nordstrom’s videos for step by step tutorials.) I tap my index and middle fingers into the highlight palette and blend over my cheekbones, nose bridge and above my brow bone for that dewy glow. I throw this in my bag since I don’t even need a brush to apply it. This under eye cream is one of the smoothest I’ve ever tried and instantly plumps that delicate area (remember to only lightly tap eye cream into your skin versus rub since it’s so fragile.) I almost forgot to mention a Charlotte product I’ve been using for years and years…her Rock N Kohl Iconic Eyeliner. It goes on sooooo easily, doesn’t irritate your eyes (so you can apply it deep into the crevices) and helps you achieve that really smoky, sexy eye – which I looooove! I use it in “Marlene Midnight” – a rich navy blue color that’s a teensy bit less harsh than your typical black liner. This is the only liner I wear when I go out to events or formal dinners. I really could go on and on about Charlotte’s products – they’re nothing short of amazing. A few other items I’m obsessed with right now are; this Tom Ford bronzer in Gold Dust, this Tom Ford blush brush (I’ve used this forever – it’s 100000% worth the splurge), and the Black Orchid perfume. I have so many perfumes and rotate between all of them depending on what mood I’m in. If I had to use one word to describe this perfume, it’s LUXE. It’s a fragrance for the girl who wants to smell insanely sophisticated. This blush brush is the best one on the market hands down. Tip: make sure to wash it with warm water and light soap every few months! And where do I begin with this bronzer? It’s just the right shade of brown so you look sun kissed year round. Last but not least, lips! I get a ton of questions asking me what lipgloss I use. I’ve been using this high shine, sticky gloss (sticky in a good way) for over 10 years! Yep, over a decade. It’s the perfect nude and really accentuates/makes your lips look plump. It doesn’t take away or compete with a dark, smoky eye and works in casual or formal settings. The exact color I use is C-Thru. Shop all of the products mentioned (which are all available at Nordstrom) below!
