With fall, comes a responsibility to change up your beauty routine in the name of perfect, hydrated skin and a makeup look that compliments your skin tone – and the season. So, after switching up your skin care products for the upcoming season, and adding a few key pieces to your wardrobe, it's time to get your makeup bag prepped and ready for the trends to come.
When it comes to getting your makeup bag fall-ready, you don't want to just toss out all of your summer essentials. Keep the products that will help you maintain beautiful skin, but add a few different shades that will keep you glow-y and fresh for fall's rich, bold colour palette. From the just-the-right-amount-of-shimmer blush to the earthy liner you can't wait to try, here are the trans-seasonal must-have's you should add to cart right now!
FALL MAKEUP ESSENTIALS TO STOCK UP ON
Black eyeliner is a classic, but when the leaves start to turn there's something decidedly cozy about swiping on earthy or jewel-toned liner. This season, it's all about the red makeup – yes, even for the eyes. So instead of choosing your signature black liner every morning, opt for something a little softer (but warm!), like a burnt burgundy or orange hue that will compliment the falling leaves!
Who said you couldn't hold on to that sun-kissed glow all-year round? Instead of bringing the whole bronzed goddess look to a halt, transition seamlessly by switching from a bronzer to a slightly-shimmery golden brown blush. Apply it to the apples of your cheekbones, forehead, and sides of nose for a naturally sun-kissed look!
Illuminating foundation may seem like it's made for summer, but it's actually way more necessary in the fall when less sun and dropping temperatures make for dryer, duller-looking complexions. Choose a liquid formula that will give you a slight dewy glow and keep your skin hydrated when the air is not. If a glow-y foundation was your go-to all summer long, then all you need to do is replace your favourite formula!
NEUTRAL SHADOW PALETTE
Fall means rich shades of brown and jewel tones that make your eyes pop, so when you're out shopping for new additions to your autumn beauty bag, don't forget to grab a neutral eye shadow palette that contains all of your basics. Our faves for fall usually consist of a slew of matte neutrals, as well as punchier jewel tones for those who want to make their blue or green eyes stand out!
Come September, your digits will want to ditch their sunny disposition for moody matte shades like burgundy, dark green, brown, and navy. If you're feeling a little more creative you can try your hand at holographic, metallic, or festive glitter formulas that will give boring one-shade nails a run for their money!
There's nothing quite like a fall-sweater-and-bold-lip combo. It's both polished and effortless at the same time and we dare you to take advantage of this look all season long. Think vamp-y shades of burgundy, brown, red, and even black. The best part? All you need to pull your look together is a bold lip – forget about the eye makeup!
