I can hardly believe that Fall is right around the corner. My allergies are kicking up in high gear so that's usually the first sign for me! Seriously though, where did the summer go?! I've been loving my low maintenance summer beauty looks, but it's time to trade some of my summer favorites in for some new fall products. Keep reading below to find which favorite products I'll be turning to for fall!
Foundations: Switch out your BB and CC creams for more coverage
Tarte CC Primer has been a long time favorite of mine. Although I'm sure I will still use it time to time, I find with cooler weather I'm reaching more for my Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation. Now that my skin has a little bit of a summer tan, my Smasbox foundation is the absolute perfect shade for my skin-tone and it just blends in flawlessly for some nice medium coverage.
One of my favorite "my lip but better" shades is Bite Beauty's Heather which is a dusty rose. Although this will still get some wear, I'm going to be reaching more for some bright and some deep berry shades. A new recent fave of mine is Bite Beauty's Juniper.
Bronzer: Switch out your shimmers for mattes
For Bronzer's I'm going to turn more to some medium matte browns like Tarte's Park Avenue Princess instead of some of my more shimmery products like Too Faced's Pink Leopard. For summer I really tried to keep my lids and lips more neutral and simple and in return I liked to go for it more with bronzers and highlighters to accentuate my sun kissed summer skin. Now that fall is right around the corner and I'm going to amp up some of my eye and lip looks, I'm going to tone it down a little bit on the shimmery bronzer and reach for more matte shades.
Nails: Switch out your summer corals for fall cabernet
I really played it safe this summer and mainly wore bare nails which is pretty unusaal for me. When I did have paint on my nails, I usually wore a peach like Lauren B. Nail Color in Sunset Blvd or a classic bright pink. I'm ready to switch it up a bit and include some deep cabernet colors like Lauren B. Nail Color in The Chateau.
This doesn't mean you have to toss away your summer favorites, just incorporate some new products into your routine. I really did enjoy easy neutral lids and lips with a healthy summer glow from shimmery highlights and bronzers. However, I'm also looking forward to mixing it up a bit and incorporating some wow me products into my daily fall routine. These certainly aren't steadfast rules, these are just some of the ways that I'm enjoying switching things up.
Happy Fall Shopping!
