How To Make An Easy Transition From A Summer to Fall Beauty Routine

Despite what Lana Del Rey says, it’s definitely summertime gladness, and what’s making our hearts sad is the inevitable end of summer, it will certainly be sorely missed. Still, instead of wallowing, we should let fall come to our doorway and welcome it with open arms. Fall has numerous charms; first, there is Indian summer to look forward to, sweater weather and stylish layers, and shopping for some new beauty products. That certainly puts a smile on your face, doesn’t it? Spending some money on new skincare and makeup goodies to reflect the season is always a silver lining. To that end, we have come up with some easy to pull off tips, trick and trends to follow in order to make the summer to fall transition all the more enjoyable, so let’s dive in and see what the golden season has in store for us.

c h a n g e   o f   c o l o u r
One of the best things about fall is that it gives us the opportunity to mix things up in the lippie department. The days of corals and nudes may be over, but that only means that the doors for all the berry, burgundy and aubergine shades are wide open. There is nothing more seductive and mysterious than those warm dark tones that make your lips pop, so step over to the dark side and embrace your fall femme fatale.

Yes, that summertime JLo glow will definitely be one of the most missed aspects of your beauty routine, but there is something unbelievably stunning about that perfect matte finish that makes you look and feel like a precious porcelain doll. We know you’re dying to shop for some new foundations, and this gives you the perfect excuse – step up your foundation game and take it up a notch in the coverage department.

Ok, this is probably one of the most important steps to take – a change of a skincare regimen. Summer was all about light moisturizers and gentle cleansers, but in order to enter the new season with your skin in spick and span shape, special attention must be paid. First off, you’ll need a slightly heavier, more nourishing moisturizer to really keep that precious skin hydrated and protected from the harsh weather. Now, in order for your foundation to look flawless, you need to call for extra backup. With the change of seasons, those pesky blackheads start to rear their ugly heads, and that’s where the amazing activated charcoal steps onto the stage, as it is currently the most effective product for blackhead removal. Remember to exfoliate two to three times a week to keep those dead cells at bay, and don’t forget to bring that summer staple SPF into fall because protection from UVA and UVB rays is an all-year-round commitment.

Light body mists and fruit and flowery perfumes should step aside and make way for a new signature scent that you’ll be known and remembered for in the fall. Our definite picks include the Tiffany & Co musky floral scent, and for those looking for something a tad more bold, poignant and memorable, La Femme Intense by Prada will be right up your alley.

s o m e   t h i n g s   n e v e r   c h a n g e
After careful inspection of both social media platforms as well as fashion magazines, we’ve come to a conclusion that, when it comes to hairstyles, you don’t have to change a thing. If you have a buzz cut or a pixie Cara Delevingne style and you love it, don’t forgo it. Beachy waves – just find a good hair styling tool and take them with you into fall. The trend forecast tells us that whatever color, length or style is your beloved one, feel free to keep it as this season welcomes all hair trends aboard.
