SPONSORED: What's Your Secret Weapon? Tips For Perfecting Your Fall Face


Products for this post were provided by Revlon. All opinions are my own.

Fall is (sort of?) in full swing. Long gone are the days of a little bronzer and lip gloss to see you through the day. Perfect skin and bright (or really dark) colors that look expertly applied are in, but you're so busy that you don't have time to think about your makeup once it's on. Or maybe that is just me? I didn't think my fall could be any busier than my summer, but I was wrong!


Try applying Revlon ColorStay Whipped™ Crème Makeup with a damp blending sponge for a flawless face. A little goes a long way, so only use a small amount!


When applied with a damp sponge, this base gives medium coverage without looking heavy or cakey. You can see your skin, but it looks perfected and like it's you, not the makeup. This might be my new favorite foundation and it retails for around $13.


This fall colors are everywhere. From bright blues and minty greens to dark, burgundy lips and winged out shadow, color is king. Revlon ColorStay™ 16 Hour Eye shadow offers a variety of shadow palettes with the colors you want now.

Shown in Sunswept, Harmonious & Serene.   Bonus! Use the peachy shade in Harmonious as a blush.

Look for color palettes that give you a few simple looks with more than three shadows. More colors mean you're less likely to fall into the crease-lid-highlight-repeat-pattern so many three shadow palettes instantly box you into. These colors don't crease or fade, are easily blendable and the best yet, they don't turn into a blended mush of color after a few hours like so many other drugstore shadows.


My lips are the first to point out that drier weather is here. I'm not alone, am I? Tight, uncomfortable, flaky lips are a good look on no one, but it's hard to avoid. Once or twice a week, before bed, try gently brushing your lips with a toothbrush with a bit of olive oil. It will remove flakes and hydrate the lips.

Muse, Final, Backstage

Be sure to wear a hydrating lip color to maintain your un-chapped look. New lip textures like cashmere and suede act more like a stain without the annoying dryness. One to try is Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede™ Lipstick. It's instantly moisturizing, long wearing and packed with pigment. If you want to try this season's most daring look--the deep burgundy lip--try the ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Backstage.

  15. My beauty secret for fall is switching to a heavier moisturizer, both for my body and my face. The colder it gets, the more I like to nourish my skin! I also like using a hydrating mask once every two weeks or so.

  16. My beauty tip for dry hair is put a conditioner in your hair at night and sleep with it over night. I do this once a month or so and when I rinse it off in the morning my hair feels soft.

  30. My fall beauty secret is simple. I like to keep a small water spritzer (or small water bottle, $1 at the Dollar Store) in my purse so during the day when I do powder touch ups I can spritz some water over my face to keep from looking chalky and to refresh my skin! Here is the link to my twitter promote and I followed you! https://twitter.com/PrettyBitches/status/389813367012986880
