Best Beauty Bets for Fall

By Elina Furman

When the cold season hits, you’ll need to put away those summer beauty products. This season, there’s a whole new crop of beauty finds that will make every day your most beautiful yet.

Hair Perfume

There’s a whole new type of perfume out there, but it’s not for your wrists or your neck. The latest Tom Ford perfume is designed just for hair. Just a spritz of Tom Ford’s Black Orchid Hair Perfume and you’ll feel like you just stepped out of an rich orchid fragrance shower. Talk about a good hair day!


The idea of wearing bronzer in the winter may seem a bit off to some, but there’s nothing like a faux glow to warm you up in the cold. For a new spin on an old favorite, Guerlain’s Terra Cotta Spray Bronzer looks natural on even the palest of skin tones. Just spray in the middle of face starting at forehead and work your way down for a look that will have every one wondering if you just got back from vacation.

Vamp it Up

Dark rich nail colors are always the way to go for fall. And last year’s nail trend du jour was black, black, black. If that was a bit too severe for you, you’re in luck because Chanel is introducing it’s new Vamp hue. With a dark maroon finish and a just a hint of shimmer, it’s infinitely more wearable. But get your bottle now before it’s almost sold out.

Freeze Frame

Tired of wrinkles and fine lines ruining your look? Forget expensive Botox injections and try the new miracle product that actually delivers. If you haven’t heard of Freeze 24/7, you’re in for a serious face treat. While it won’t last for months, one application will significantly reduce the lines of wrinkles for up to eight hours and provide a flawless foundation for makeup.

The Perfect Red

Nothing says fall like the perfect red lipstick. But finding the one that suits your skin tone and isn’t too bright can take a lifetime. Enter Lancôme Color Fever Lipstick in P.S. Kiss. This must-have color was created especially for New York’s runway shows, so expect a major waiting line when the tube hits the shelves at Nordstrom and Bergdorf Goodman.
