Must-Try November Beauty Picks

Now that your calendar is filling up with parties and family gatherings, it is time to for you to look and feel as fabulous as possible. I have rounded up my top beauty must-haves this month. Whether you need a flirty new fragrance, glowing skin, or pretty nail solutions, you'll find it below.

Bring on the flawless with Smashbox Liquid Halo Foundation! The first-ever foundation with 100% Liquid Light Technology completely evens out skin for a totally natural, luminous finish. Party season means more photos, so how about some gel-covered pigments that mimic photo filters to blur imperfections?! This HD formula was developed to keep up with advancing photo technology by giving you flawless coverage that's undetectable to the naked eye. It works with all undertones and is buildable for sheer-to-medium coverage. Oh, and PS, it won the Allure Best of Beauty award for Best Foundation for Oily Skin!

The beginning of the holiday season always gets me in the mood to find a new fragrance. I have a few options for you here. The first is Katy Perry Mad Potion Eau de Parfum Rollerball. I love the name. Take your fragrance on the go with this blend of Tahitian vanilla orchid, sweet white peony, fresh apple, Madagascar bourbon vanilla, luminous jasmine petals, whipped fluffy musk, Mexican vanilla bean absolute, and glowing amber. The vanilla really stands out in this one. It is a very sweet fragrance, perfect for being flirty. Unleash your magic when you wear Mad Potion!

It is the perfect time to start rehabbing your skin for the holidays and the best place to start is from within. Hum Nutrition Runway Ready Supplements are these great on-the-go packs to give women shiny and fuller hair, stronger nails, and glowing skin. Used by everyone from model and mom Molly Sims to celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin, Hum’s Runway Ready gives women an easy way to give their beauty a boost in a safe way. What's in it? Black Currant Seed Oil (stimulates healthy skin and hair growth and is a strong anti-inflammatory), Sunflower Seed Oil (promotes shiny hair and glowing skin), Vitamin E (neutralizes free radicals that damage collagen and dry the skin), and Biotin (strengthens the nail cuticle and prevents breakage) to name just a few. Biotin is also often taken to strengthen the hair and prevent hair loss. Biotin was originally used to strengthen horse hooves and research has since shown that humans can benefit from a biotin boost, too.

Developed by celebrity nail tech Elle and featuring four season-inspired hues that steer clear of gray winter weather, the Dermelect Nail Lacquer Holiday Collection creates a sexy, coveted manicure. These polishes also offer Dermelect’s signature keratin protein peptide to help strengthen nails and extend the length of the manicure. The latest ‘ME’ Collection offers four beautiful color formulations: Hold ‘ME’ (Sparkled Midnight Noir), Thrill ‘ME’ (Frosted Evergreen), Kiss ‘ME’ (Velvet Crimson), and Sleigh ‘ME’ (Arctic Shimmer). I tried Hold 'ME' and Kiss 'ME'. I love the benefits of these infused color treatments. They actually strengthen weak, brittle nails and restores flexibility. The formula also helps resist chipping and splitting for superior extended wear. The ME colors combine fast drying, high shine, and a healthy ‘green’ dose of vitamins, peptides, and moisture, offering a colorful solution to the modern woman’s beauty concern - aging hands and nails. 

Here is another fragrance option for you. Join the party and capture the excitement of a party that never stops with Outspoken Party! by Fergie! It was inspired by that feeling you get when the DJ turns up the volume, and the room comes alive with an energy all its own. Encapsulated in a vibrant pink bottle with a faceted jewel cap, Outspoken Party! by Fergie embodies Fergie’s electric energy and the excitement of the night. This is Fergie's fifth Avon fragrance, and this one perfectly captures Fergie’s passion for life, electrifying personality, and bold sense of fun. Sparkling and spirited, this fragrance infuses luscious cassis and raspberry with tropical mandarin fizz for a tempting, fruity opening. A floral heart blossoms with red plumeria and magnolia blossom mixed with fiery peony, giving the scent a light and feminine touch. Finally, a base of rich crème brûlée mixes with creamy musks and vaporous sandalwood adds a warm finish. The scent is warm and inviting. It is perfect for all of your seasonal soirees.

This podiatrist formulated advanced nail enamel gives you long lasting, brilliant color. It is formulated with the active ingredients Garlic Bulb Extract, Tea Tree Oil, Wheat Protein and Vitamins C and E. There are over 30 100% Vegan nail polish shades available!

Fall brings us fun activities, delicious food and crisp weather … and chapped lips. Keep your lips moisturized and hydrated with a Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick! They come in your favorite fall colors and will repair and protect those dry lips. This deeply nourishing lip treatment is formulated with a luxurious blend of softening oils, butters, and waxes. Mandarin oil refreshes and soothes dry, chapped lips, while rich shea butter and sunflower waxes deeply nourish for long-lasting care and comfort. Each healing stick also features vitamin E, known for its advanced antioxidant properties. With four colors to choose from, you will make a statement wearing these and you will be able to protect your lips from the cold season approaching. I received the pink shade.

For just a hint of color and a whole lot of conditioning, Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms contain botanical waxes that will take your lips from dry and drab to hydrated and lovely in one pretty swipe. They come in a range of 9 naturally flattering shades. I tried the hibiscus shade.

Spritz on a bit of Adidas Born Original Eau de Parfum Spray for a refreshingly fruity scent experience. This fragrance begins with a bright citrusy cocktail of bergamot, apricot and orange zest. The top notes burst into a vibrant, sweet candy apple accord and tantalizing notes of exotic coconut, jasmine and tonka beans add an unexpected twist for an intoxicating finish. This fragrance is a nice mixture of fruity and sweet. It is very feminine.

Shot with sparkling caramel flecks, Lauren B. Nail Polish in Espresso on 3rd has a deep chocolate tone that wears well on all skin tones. It is a lovely fall shade. Lauren B.'s advanced, quick-drying nail enamels deliver a high-shine, chip-resistant, long-lasting finish. The brush is packed with twice the standard amount of bristles, all pre-lacquered so your polish glides on smoothly and streak-free. The bottle has a special over-cap, so you can use a square or cylindrical handle for more control. Each formula is even eco-friendly, vegan-friendly, and proudly made in the USA.

Be bold and daring with Avon Big & Daring Volume Mascara. Sweep on from root to tip for 24-hour explosive volume. I love the brush on this mascara. It grabs every lash and boost them for maximum volume!
