By Jodi Truglio

It’s that magical time of the year again when the days seem to be gradually getting shorter and the sweet smell of apple cider now perfumes the air.

Fall has finally arrived, warm colors such as your browns, reds and oranges are our color palette of choice. Below is a list of fall inspired products that we hope will make your days a little brighter.


Located in Los Angeles, Glammy, creates a variety of stunning mirrors that are reminiscent of the glamor days of old Hollywood when stars like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn lit up the silver screen.

Each mirror is handcrafted using only sustainable, locally sourced materials and come in various sizes from portable to about the size of an iPad to something more stationary like their portrait mirror that will make you feel like a Hollywood scarlet.

1930’s-Hurraw! Balm

If you are looking for a natural vegan rouge that is all about old Hollywood glamour than look no further than Hurraw!

Founded in 2010, the company was once exclusively all about lip balm, recently expanded their product line to include “Crimson Aura Accent Balm” which is made of a coconut base infused with alkanet root and mixed with purple carrot extract to give lips and cheeks a rich hint of color and shimmer without staining or feeling greasy.

1940’s-786 Cosmetics

786 Cosmetics is a cruelty-free, vegan, Halal nail polish brand that creates shades that are just as stunning as the cites they are named after. The nail-polish (can be worn during wudu) is long lasting, breathable and can be worn anywhere between 7 to 10 days without having to worry that it will chip or peel. Best of all, since the polish is water-based, unlike traditional nail-polishes, 786 polish is gentle on nails. Our favorite shade is Marrakech which is a really pretty fiery red-orange color that was inspired by Marrakech Morocco.

1950’s-Crayola Beauty

For most of us we can remember the excitement of opening up our first box of Crayola Crayons, there was just something magical about that green and yellow box filled with brightly colored crayons that sparked our imagination and made dreams possible.

Today, those dreams are still possible thanks to Crayola’s partnership with the beauty manufacturer Crea and sold exclusively through the online retailer ASOS.

The line is also vegan, cruelty-free and encourages adults to play with their make-up by creating products that are multi-purpose. For example the Color Crayon Trio- Face Crayons in Heat Wave can be used as an eyeliner, shadow and bronzer. It can also be used it on top of a matte lipstick to add a subtle metallic sparkle.

1960’s-Reina Rebelde

Reina Rebelde was created by an ambitious Latina woman with a love for make-up and the desire to share the beauty of her culture through color.

Their make-up line is bold yet feminine which is reflective of the female spirt whether you are wearing their lipstick which applies like a lip crayon for the perfect pout or their eyeshadow, the collection encourages unity and self-expression by flattering every skin tone. Our favorite shade is Alma Desnuda which is the perfect shade of peachy nude.
