Beauty is Life New season...new look! But with a sea of products to choose from, updating a cosmetic wardrobe is enough to give any gal a makeup meltdown. So, who better to fill us in on the latest must-haves than the beautylicious ladies of Birchbox. The uber-popular beauty sample service delivers it's top five cosmetic crushes exclusively to GalTime.
Dark Lips: Not to fear, red isn't dead this season, it's just taking a backseat to darker more romantic hues like this plum Beauty Is Life Lipstick in Aubergine ($28, above). To pull it off, keep the rest of your makeup minimal, but don't forget to add a touch of bronzer or blush to steer clear of spooky territory.
Bold Nails: Ditch your summer neutrals and make a statement with your mani this fall. We're loving eye-catching shades like cobalt blue and chartreuse. If those hues are simply too bright, we suggest toning them down by only using them as statement nail colors.
