Fall Beauty Guide: Top Rated Products in Makeup, Skincare & Hair

I’m thrilled to introduce this season’s beauty shopping guide! Style Tomes is less than a year old, and I’ve rolled it through the humble beginnings of summer with bits of information on products and more contained (read, smaller) guides. Needless to say, this seasonal beauty ensemble and shopping reference of the creme de la creme in the industry is a new endeavor for the website.

The products features are tried, tested and user approved. You’ll recognize many of the featured products and brands as cult faves. The notion of a fall beauty special isn’t necessarily tied to brand new product launches (although a few products are new to the market). The intention is to allow the product to stand up to the changes in weather and conditions and shine in its full potential.
