KCL Big Fall Beauty Edit

Welcome! The monthly KCL beauty edit for October is the big Fall Beauty Edit, and I'm so excited to share these seasonal beauty picks with you! From chakra essential oil rollers to the most beautiful and bold liquid lipsticks, you'll find much more than just pumpkin spice on this Fall beauty guide (though of course there is a little pumpkin spice!).

I don't know about you guys, but this is my favorite time of the year when it comes to beauty and fashion. Fabrics are cozy, and the colors are more dark and more rich. Darker sexy shades as well as bold jewel tones and shimmery metallics dominate in beauty as much as they do in fashion. And the warm comforting spices in Autumn cooking have made their way into all sorts of skincare and bodycare. Whether you need some Fall gift ideas or simple want to switch up your beauty routine for the season, you'll find everything you could want below. Enjoy!


One of the makeup trends I'm most excited about year after year is Fall n…

My Favorite Nude Nail Colors


Nude nail polish is one of the top nail color trends every spring and summer. Seeing all of those manicures in delicate pale shades always makes me wish I could pull it off, but with my darker olive skin tone, it just doesn't look right. But when I tried Sinful Colors in Vacation Time, I was pleasantly surprised at how great it looked. Turns out there are a lot of nude nail colors out there that look great on darker skin tones.

The Lauren B Nude Collection has several different shades, from light to very dark, nearly all of which would be great on darker skin tones. I really like the Lauren B Beauty Nude Collection Polish No. 3. It has a very pretty warm tone to it. If you want to try a true brown, go for Lauren B. Beauty Nude Collection Nail Lacquer - Nude No.5.


These polishes by ZOYA are two perfect examples of what to look for in a nude shade if you have darker skin. The idea isn't necessarily to pick a darker nude. You don't want it to just blend into your skin, and if you prefer feminine colors, you may not want a pure brown polish. Pick something that has some color to it. A darker nude with either a purplish tint, like the ZOYA Normani or a darker nude with a pinkish tint, like the ZOYA Brigitte are both excellent choices.


If you're still unsure on which shade to try, check out these essie polishes in their neutrals, grays, and browns. On Amazon you can select each color to see what it looks like on. You can even select specific skin tones to see a picture of what it would look like on you. To the right of the product pic, you'll see the "see it on" option, and to the far right, you can select different nail polish colors. Once you've selected your shade and "see it on" you can customize the skin tone in the display.

  1. Zoya Brigette looks gorgeous! I may have just found my next polish purchase! I'm super pale so it won't really be a nude for me, though!

    1. That's one of my favorites. It's so pretty! It would look great on lighter skin too.
