Beauty Report: Favorites for Fall

Written by Lesley Holland Downey

What I’m loving right now is anything that makes my life easier and my routine a little more efficient. A dry shampoo that adds volume and resurrects a blow dry after a few days; a wave-enhancing spray that smells just as good as a designer fragrance; a CC cream that has SPF and enough coverage to mitigate darkness around your eyes; a favorite eye shadow stick that stays put all day. Here are the products in heavy rotation in my fall beauty routine.
