My Beauty Cabinet Is Getting a Fall Refresh—Here's Everything in My Cart

If you want to talk fall beauty, Shawna Hudson is your girl. Who What Wear's associate beauty editor takes seasonal shopping very seriously, especially once September hits. That's because everyone knows fall is the best time of year to shop—don't @ me. The weather calls for great layering (and equally great outfits), but the beauty department is where the fun is really at. Barely-there shades are swapped for rich browns, golds, and burgundies. Light and fresh scents are replaced with mysterious, warm flavors. I don't know, something about fall just feels like the time to refresh, reinvent, revamp—whatever you want to call it—yourself. As always, Macy's is here to help get us there. To kick things off, keep scrolling for the beauty products Shawna is currently coveting.

"This eye-shadow palette in the shade Burgundy is everything for fall. The rich browns, warm terra-cottas, and magentas are exactly the hues I love to wear this time of year."

"I'm a huge fan of this chic, mysterious, and totally alluring scent. Its warm, floral aroma blends notes of jasmine, bourbon vanilla, and fennel-gentian flower extract. A beautiful combination of notes that came just in time for fall."

"Urban Decay's hydrating lipstick is highly pigmented, long-lasting, and available in 35 vibrant shades. I'll be ordering at least five."

"For instant radiance, hydration, and smoother, plumped skin overall, I'll be turning to this luxe treatment from Estée Lauder."

"I'm a sucker for a good plumping gloss, and Buxom's formula comes in so many gorgeous colors for fall. The shades Dolly, Clair, and Debbie can get in my cart now."

"This little eye-shadow quad from Clarins contains highly pigmented shadows that are enriched with bamboo powder—a natural primer for crease-free color on the lids. The Flame quad will be my go-to, and as a bonus, it fits so nicely into any purse."

"I rarely blow-dry my hair anymore, but when I do, I turn to a thermal stress protector like Kenra Professional's Platinum Blow-Dry Spray. Stylists love the stuff because it detangles, smoothes, softens, prevents damage, and is great for medium to coarse hair (like mine)."

"I'll be the first to admit how dry my hair gets once the weather cools off. This formula will do the trick. Its loaded with nourishing ingredients to quench dry, thirsty strands."

"I don't heat-style anymore, so a curl-boosting spray tonic is 100% necessary for my daily routine now. Ouidad's Botanical Boost Spray helps curls stay defined, provides extra hydration throughout the day, and can be used on both wet and dry hair."

"I'm constantly on a quest to find a blush that gives me rosy, naturally flushed cheeks without actually looking like blush. This Anastasia Beverly Hills formula is the one for the job. It's creamy, highly blendable, and just melts into the skin so seamlessly."

"Normally, I prefer cream blushes, but this Benefit Powder Blush is totally an exception. It has a silky-soft finish, and it's smudge-proof and totally noncomedogenic. I also love the soft, warm, mauve tones it comes in—a fall staples for sure."

"I love experimenting with new makeup looks once fall rolls around. Now is the perfect time to try this natural-finish foundation from Too Faced since I've heard so many good things about it. It's totally oil-free, provides medium to full coverage, and contains nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, alpine rose, and coconut water."

"I switch up my eye cream based on the season, and this Clinique offering is perfect for cooler weather. It's not a cream but an eye serum that includes soothing agents such as panthenol to boost hydration."

"Another thing I won't be skipping this time of year is a good eye mask. Infused with pure 24K gold, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and colloidal gold, these patches lift, firm, hydrate, and reduce puffiness around the delicate eye area. They're a luxury treat for the eyes and do all this in just 10 minutes, too. You can't beat that."

"As far as serums go, I'll be opting for this lush Lancôme serum that celebs like Lily Collins love. It boosts your skin's overall radiance with ingredients including vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and prebiotics for an other-worldly glow."

"I've been going real easy on the retinol lately, but StriVectin's Super C Retinol is the perfect addition to my routine. The formula is mostly a potent vitamin C serum with a bit of retinol nestled in—the perfect combo if you ask me."

"For a nighttime retinol, I'll be going with Elizabeth Arden's hydrating option. I love that the formula comes in biodegradable, single-use capsules and has moisture-boosting ceramides to combat the typical dryness that comes with using retinol."

"An esthetician (with amazing lashes) told me Grande is her go-to, so I'm sold. I'll be adding this two-piece lash system straight to my cart."

"This hydrating primer is infused with shea butter, rice bran, and glycerin, and leaves skin with a soft, radiant glow. My skin tends to get a bit dull once the wind picks up, so I'll be keeping this on hand for the coming months."

"Another fall fragrance I want to explore is Burberry's deliciously addictive Her Elixir. With notes of strawberry, blackberry, jasmine accord, and vanilla, it sounds like the perfect crisp, juicy scent to add to my fall fragrance wardrobe."
