Patranila's Must-Have Beauty Products ~ Fall 2014

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

The name says it all. It’s silky, offers great coverage and leaves my skin looking supple and lit from within. A lot of lightweight foundations don’t offer much by way of coverage but this one offers the best of all worlds.


Benefit Watt’s Up! Highlighter

As highlighters go, this one rates among the best. And just in case you didn’t know, the mark of a truly great highlighter is one that when worn, prompts people to say things like ‘your skin looks great.’ Never should they say, ‘what highlighter do you use?’ Watt’s Up fills the bill nicely by creating a warm glow with a subtle shimmer.

Maybelline New York  Lash Stiletto

I love lashes. Long lashes, curly lashes, false lashes, and semi-permanent lashes. I really love semi-permanent lashes but they can be expensive to maintain and I hardly ever have time to apply falsies. Not to mention that I can rarely apply them symmetrically; one of them is almost always a little janky. But a single swipe of an amazing mascara can take your face from basic to wow in seconds. Lash Stiletto has been my go-to for many weeks. As the name promises, it lengthens my lashes and adds just the right amount of volume.

Gelish NOURISH Cuticle Oil

With Autumn comes cooler temperatures, dryer air and lots of moisturizers. This year, I’m remembering my cuticles with one of my new favorite finds, Gelish NOURISH Cuticle Oil. I was introduced to it when I got my first gel manicure and now I use it all the time. It’s lightweight, easy to apply and smells wonderful!

Julep Nail Color in Kristy

I love a dark nail and blue is my color this season. Kristy is a beautiful, midnight blue with a creamy finish and high shine. For more of my favorite nail colors this Fall, check out my Instagram!

  17. I really like that Benefit highlighter. And that nail polish is completely on point, there is just something about a nice dark polish especially in the fall

  22. I LOVE the nail polish. I rarely paint my fingernails as I can't just can't get it to last. But I love to paint my toenails.

    1. As long as you can get it to last for three or four days, you're good to go!

  23. What shade or tone did you get for the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation? Foundations are a hit or miss for me. I don't know which one really suits me best.

    1. My shade number is 9 and it's perfect for me. It goes on a little light but settles in to seamless coverage. The best way to get the right shade is to first make sure the undertones in the foundation match that of your skin and then apply in natural light.
