The sudden abundance of crocodile-print boots and leather coats can only mean one thing: It’s fall. And if summer is the season of minimal makeup, then autumn is undoubtedly the time to experiment with richer looks and formulas. After all, what’s a cozy cashmere knit without beautifully defined brows and a flash of chrome highlighter?
This year, Walmart is making it especially easy to ensure your makeup kit has all the season’s must-have staples. During its inaugural Fall Into Beauty event, which is running throughout the entire month of October, you can find exclusive offers on new products each week. Below are the essentials we’ll be stocking up on immediately.
There are only so many times you can wash your brushes… if you wash your brushes. Replace them with this set, which is intended for eyeshadow but can really be used just about anywhere. (Pro tip: The smaller brushes are ideal for applying concealer.) Meanwhile, the versatile sponge offers a flat side for buffing larger areas and a pointed end for smaller spots, like around your nose.
Transition your summer glow into fall with this easy-to-blend highlighting gel. Imbued with a subtle shimmer, it gives a burnished, sun-kissed shine to cheeks. It also doubles as a great eyeshadow once you’ve finally embraced leather weather.
When you have a mascara that volumizes like this one, lashes can be a look all on their own. Thanks to wavy bristles that deposit just enough formula, you get a thickened and lengthened effect without clumping.
Give your creamy complexion day-to-night staying power with this translucent setting powder, which controls shine, locks in makeup, and works on a wide range of skin tones. Simply dust it over your entire face for an airbrushed finish.
Waterproof. Blendable. No sharpening needed. This brow pencil offers all three benefits — while, of course, defining brows and giving them a fuller look.
