Thank you to HerCampus and Ulta Beauty for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.


For those who aren’t familiar with College Fashion Week, it’s an annual event hosted by HerCampus that brings influential twenty-somethings together in New York City for a night of fun and fall fashion. But unlike most runway shows, College Fashion Week features accessible fashion modeled by real college women.

Refreshing, right?

I was invited to attend this empowering event as a VIP guest of Ulta Beauty, the largest beauty retailer in the U.S. and my personal favorite for “All Things Beauty. All in One Place.™”

To help me get ready for the runway, Ulta Beauty spoiled me with beauty products galore! And during the weeks leading up to College Fashion Week, I enjoyed mixing things up to try a few new products and palettes.

Curious to see which cosmetics have become regulars of my beauty routine? Scroll to see for yourself.

TARTE

DON’T QUIT YOUR DAYDREAM EYESHADOW PALETTE

This limited-edition eyeshadow palette by Tarte is the perfect warm-toned, everyday palette for fall. And it’s only available at Ulta Beauty!

Don’t miss out on these blendable colors, ranging from cream to chestnut. I’ve been using ‘boss lady’ on my lid, ‘werk’ in my crease, ‘strive’ in my inner + outer corners, and ‘visionary’ on my brow bone.

MAC

PREP + PRIME FIX + SHIMMER

The holy grail of hydrating mists is now infused with pearlescent gold particles for the ultimate glow!

As a setting spray, I’ve found that Fix+ Goldlite is lightweight, hydrating, and can improve the look of your makeup for a solid 12 hours.

PRO TIP: You can also lightly spray it onto an eyeshadow brush to turn eyeshadows into creamy, metallic foils.

IT BRUSHES FOR ULTA

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT! BRUSH SET

Exclusively available at Ulta, this 5-Piece set is a $96 value that includes full-size foundation, blush, eyeshadow, smudger and crease makeup brushes.

Don’t get me wrong — I love a good beauty blender, but these brushes by IT Cosmetics give my skin that flawless, airbrushed look I’ve always wanted. And if that’s not enough to sell ya, they’re encrusted with crystals and come with a sleek clutch.

REVOLUTION

IGNITE FACE QUAD HIGHLIGHTING PALETTE

Give your complexion a healthy-looking glow, and highlight your best features with this all-in-one palette by Revolution.

I fell in love with the shimmery powders in this palette, which are described as golden peach, champagne gold, warm amber and golden bronze.

Seriously, 5 out of 5 stars.

LIVING PROOF

PERFECT HAIR DAY (PHD) BODY BUILDER

As someone who uses a flat iron three to five days a week, let’s just say I could use a little volume…

Luckily, buildable body is just a spray away! I was so excited to try this body building hairspray by Living Proof. and it did not disappoint.

Definitely pick up a bottle if your hair could use a little oomph!


It was such a dream to partner with Ulta Beauty + HerCampus — two brands committed to empowering women on #TheRealRunway and IRL. Let me know in a comment below if you’re an #UltaBeautyBabe planning to try these products!
