Back to School Beauy.

Whether you are going back to school (or work) or your kids are, it is time for a change. Simplifying your beauty routine is no easy task. With so many products to discover and choose from, it is easy to get caught up in buying what you don't need.


We have been working hard behind the scenes of Beautiful Makeup Search to seek out the best beauty products you need now. From multi-tasking products, all-in-one makeup palettes, to great haircare options, and our favorite products from the Summer and new ones for Fall, we have you covered. Join us over the next few weeks as we help you get through this busy time of year with our Back to School beauty features.


Shiseido - Fall Collection

This new Fall collection from Shiseido is calling me. Featuring shimmery, mostly bronze and neutral shades with a pop of pink added into the mix, I am lovin' it. 


My favorite looks are either neutrals and pinks, or bronzes and pinks. The new Shiseido products in this collection can help me stick to my normal shade selections, while spicing my look up a bit with some new products.

I really want to try the Automatic Lip Crayons. I have never tried them, but they look to be a thicker, automatic lipliner type of product, but with more coverage for the entire lip. And the two colors in the new collection look beautiful.

You cannot go wrong with a black eyeliner, and my choices of late are gels or shadows used as liners, but I really am wanting to dabble in this Cream Eyeliner. I can only imagine how beautiful my eyes will look lined with the black liner paired with the looks from the beautiful shades in the Eye Shadow Quad in Desert Winds.

I really don't have much to say about the glosses, except they are perfect, and would complete the entire look when one of these sheer colors are applied.

Shiseido's Fall Collection is on counter now and available at Sephora as well.
