Now is the time to take your makeup routine from soft and dewy to matte and rich. Summer makeup is all about soft tones, sheer coverage and natural vibes. Fall is about rich hues, smoky eyes and trendy tones. I’ll fill you in on how to transition your makeup routine from summer to fall! All it takes is a few minor switches.
- Start with the lips. During the summer I love wearing pink and coral colored lip shades. This fall opt for sheer, translucent stains of plum or burgundy. Last year’s lip trend was opaque oxblood, but this year it is a little more subdued. There is also a trend of wearing unique lip shades such as navy, but I don’t know if I am ready to tackle that one!
- Next follow up with the eyes. Trade out neutral shadows with this year’s hottest eye trend: crimson. Create a smoky eye with crimson and russet tones.
- Figure out the finish. Summer makeup is dewy and makes your face glow, where as usual fall foundation has a matte finish. This year, avoid the “flat” look by using foundations and powders that allow your natural complexion to show through.
- Make your moisturizer count. In the summer you sweat a lot and the humidity keeps your skin moist. Cooler times call for different measures. Cold temps dry out your skin, so use creamy cleansers and moisturizers to make sure your face gets the moisture it needs! No one likes flaky skin on their face.
The transition from summer to fall makeup is completely painless! Easy peasy.
