If December is the month of treating your loved ones, then November is the month of spoiling yourself. Yes, technically, it is the season of giving — but new new November 2018 beauty products from brands like OUAI, Osea, and Paula's Choice are way too good to pass on.
There’s a practical aspect to all the newness, of course: With holiday season right around the corner, now’s the time to stock up on the jeweled hair accessories and festive nail polish you’ll need for the endless parties that will soon dominate your iCal. “Fall is about cherry tones, blushes, and hints of shimmer begin to pop up right before the holidays,” Jaleesa Jaikaran, an editorial makeup artist, tells The Zoe Report — which is why most of the makeup products below are all about the warmth.
In return, many of the skincare products are in line with that same notion — maintaining (and retaining) the moisture that harsh wind strips away. “As temperatures are dipping, it's best to switch to moisturizing formulations,” Dr. Neil Sadick of Sadick Dermatology tells us — especially ones with SPF. “Even though it is not as hot and there are more gray days, sun protection is still very necessary to prevent signs of aging and lower the risk of skin cancer,” Dr. Jennifer Vickers of Sanova Dermatology adds.
‘Tis the season for frizz, too, so the month's must-haves include smoothing styling products, hydrating shampoos and conditioners, and heat tools that make updos easy. As far as the nail color you should have on your fingertips while styling? “Embrace the change of season with sparkle and rich tones,” nail artist Sarah Bland said in a release for Smith & Cult’s just-released range of holiday colors.
