Dare I say it, my friends? It appears there has been a shift in the air here in South Texas that can only mean one thing: fall is on its way. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still going to be in the near-triple-digit temperatures for a while, but the early mornings are ever so slightly more bearable, and the sun is sinking on the horizon just a fraction earlier. With cooler weather comes new trends, which we’ve already discussed on the fashion front here, but today we’re giving your beauty routine a seasonal refresher as well.
Step One: Update your eyeliner.
Summer is the time for easy, breezy mascara that won’t run all over your face. For fall, give a bold winged eyeliner a try, and pair it with a super dark lip in rich merlot shades. There’s lots of fun trends out there with double winged eyeliner, colored hues, and thick flashes of midnight black that give your eyes some serious dimension. Have fun with it, but make sure you pick up a great eyeliner to execute your vision. I’ve been loving NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker lately, but if I have extra time for application my go-to is always MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Creamliner in Matte Black.
Step Two: Update your foundation.
Stick your tinted moisturizer in storage and opt for a true base foundation that will withstand the heavier colors and varying temperatures of fall. Make sure to go with a lighter shade since your sun-kissed glow of summer is about to fade into the sunset. You all know my favorite is the MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation in Soft Sand, and since it’s oil-free you don’t have to worry about it clogging up your pores.
Step Three: Update your fragrance.
Summer is the time for light, flowery scents that remind you of the beach and road trips. For fall, switch things up and opt for a musky, rich scent that’s a little more sensuous. Vogue recently sent me the brand new campaign for their Prada fragrance, Candy Eau De Parfum, which they describe as “an indulgent sophisticated edible that is confidently seductive.” It’s a little bit sass and a little bit sexy. Perfect for fall, and mixing up your signature scent will keep those around you on their toes. Especially a significant other who might want to get a little closer when those temperatures start to drop. Pick up this limited edition fragrance from Sephora here.
So how do you adjust your beauty routine for a new season? What trends are you most looking forward to this fall? Let me know in the comments!
