The Clarins Ladylike fall 2014 makeup collection introduced some of my beauty favorites for fall. Classy and elegant, every shade and product is extremely wearable and easy to use.
Available in six flattering shades, the new Ombre Matte Cream to-Powder Matte Eyeshadow ($24) is one of the star products. Bamboo powder within the formula ensures a long-lasting matte effect. Apply it with your ring finger and you're good to go for at least six hours. My absolute favorite is 05 Sparkle Grey, a pewter shade with a slight shimmer. You can use it alone or layer it with 03 Taupe for a stunning smoky eye.
Prefer dry eyeshadow? The Ombre Minerale 4 Couleurs Eye Quartet Mineral Palette ($42) in 13 Skin Tones provides an understated smoky eye that's suitable for a daytime look. In fact, it has a very similar result as the Ombre Matte 04 Rosewood cream-to-powder eyeshadow.
For the cheeks, the Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour ($31) in 07 Tawny Pink is a warm dusty rose with a hint of brown. Color payoff is superb so you don't need to apply a lot of product to make it last.
Lips get a natural look this season. The ultra-creamy Rouge Eclat Satin Finish Age-Defying Lipstick ($27) contains plant waxes (sunflower and jojoba) and their Nutri-Youth Complex to create younger-looking lips. 16 Candy Rose, a subdued raspberry pink, makes my lips pop nicely. The 17 Pink Magnolia is a gorgeous warm rosewood you can wear every day; 18 Strawberry Sorbet matched my natural lip color perfectly. As with all Clarins lipsticks, it's really hard to choose just one shade!
