As the Texas weather cools down and we start preparing for the holidays, don’t forget to keep your skin-care and makeup routine in check.
You want to make sure you continue to have healthy, glowing skin this season and stay extra hydrated and moisturized due to the colder weather. Also, it’s fun to incorporate new colors and makeup trends into your beauty routine. This fall season highlights rich bronze shadows and deep berry colors sure to spice up your look. These are my favorite beauty items for the fall, meant to help you stay hydrated, glowing, and sparkling all season long.

Her products are designed to enhance the natural beauty of each client. Her Blush Compact in Polly is a perfect shade to wear this fall season. The blush is a striking, rich pink berry color that gives a beautiful soft finish on the cheeks and lasts all day long. www.mistyrockwellcosmetics.com
Ellis Faas Cosmetics Ellis Lights E303 $37.65
Based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Ellis Faas is a cruelty-free, luxury makeup brand that specializes in human colors and bringing to light the uniqueness that is inside each one of us. The color palettes that are created by Ellis Faas are like non other. I love the Ellis Lights eye highlighters.
They create an illusion of metallic eyes, and the texture appears moist while being perfectly dry with a smooth finish. The colors are also full of sparkle but do not contain glitter. I highly recommend wearing one of their eye popping shadows, perfect for special occasions and holiday parties. www.ellisfaas.com
I see makeup as a way to express how you want to feel or want to portray yourself that day, and if that is in sync with your personality, then I think it’s beauty. – Ellis Faas
