Last night on the way home from work it was the first time this fall that I actually felt cold. Not just a chill in the air, but actually full on cold! I was freezing! (yet it was still probably 50 degrees…which I know I’ll be wishing for probably very soon here). With the change in seasons and temps comes not only a transition to different, warmer clothing, but a freshened up makeup / beauty routine as well.
A couple of the most recent additions to my fall routine – a switch to darker rich nail colors, using Aveda Pure Abundance hair potion, and daily use of Aquaphor lip + healing ointment.
My current go-to nail colors are OPI’s ‘Overexposed in South Beach’, Zoya’s ‘Anja’, and Color Club’s ‘Status Update’ – I cruise through fall and winter pretty much never seeing my bare nails.
The Aveda Pure Abundance hair potion has been a life saver since chopping a few inches off my hair last month. It gives it a little thicker, work-able texture when sprinkled at the roots and now I definitely notice a difference when I forget to use some in the morning. It’s like this magic little powder that changes texture when you rub it in your hands / hair.
The Aquaphor lip repair has been a purse staple for me lately (and I love that it’s fragrance and preservative free). The Aquaphor healing ointment is great slathered all over post-shower and has kept my skin happy as long as I’ve been using it.
