People always ask me what it’s like to attend Fashion Week, and it’s sort of like eight of your busiest days where you have about 19,000 things to do, 25 places to be and about 15 minutes to get to everything. Now, just speed everything up, take away your car, and then throw in the fact that you have to look cute at all times because inevitably someone will probably take your photo. That’s pretty much exactly what Fashion Week is like.
When weeks like this approach, I immediately gravitate toward any time-saving beauty product that can help me not look like a molten puddle of stress, and makeup palettes are definitely at the top of the list. This gorgeous new LORAC Cosmetics palette arrives right as I’m hitting the tents for the rest of the world via the flash site Hautelook, and the colors are perfect for fall and beyond. From a great neutral eye to rich tones that will kick your look into overdrive just in time for cocktails, it’s a great, time-saving addition to all of our fall makeup bags.
Plus, it’s just $15. Which, considering it’s 10 shadows (8 gorgeous, soft shades for fall and two highlighters), it’s a steal.
Because, let’s face it: when life gets so busy that you feel like you need roller skates, a good makeup palette is a much-needed sanity giver. Breathe deeply, reach for the laptop, click “purchase” on this awesome LORAC palette, sip tea, exhale.
And then, you know, head to the next thing on your to-do list. But cross off “Buy amazing makeup palette,” ’cause that’s done.
LORAC Cosmetics Stylist Palette, $15, available via Hautelook on September 6th.
