What’s in My Fall Makeup Bag?
Your makeup bag might still be filled with your favorite summer items - bright colors and floral scents - but it's time to replace those with products that will get you ready for the cooler, cozier months.
When you think of fall, you think of warmer, comfier clothes and darker colors. You don't want to accentuate that lovely oversized sweater you’ve been dying to take out of the closet with some bright summer colors! You want to match your makeup with the feel of fall. To help you figure out what you should be looking for, I'm sharing with you what I have in my fall makeup bag:
No need for those breezy summer scents any more. Time to switch out your travel spray to something more foliage-friendly. Find a perfume that has hints of (bourbon) vanilla, bergamot, mock orange, jasmine, or even sandalwood. My personal favorite scent is a blend of amber and orange; it adds a zesty edge to the pine scent of amber.
You should always keep a moisturizer handy, especially during the cooler months, to help prevent your skin from drying out. My go-to moisturizer is our Vitamin C Face Cream. It's honestly great to use all year long because its lightweight formula makes it perfect for the summer time, and the boost of Vitamin C helps my skin maintain a healthy glow even during the fall.
If you're planning on doing some makeup, moisturize first! This will help smooth your skin's surface and help your makeup stay on longer. If you apply foundation on dry skin, it can come off as looking too cakey (and nobody wants that).
Throw out those brighter colors, and look for browns, plums, and maybe even a little shimmer for your eyeshadow palette. You can also throw in some darker oranges and reds to really give you that cozy fall vibe.
I love a nice a grey eyeliner during the fall to really help accentuate the warm colors of my eyeshadow. Sometimes a black eyeliner can be a bit much and take away from the warm colors.
If you can't get rid of your black eyeliner, a smudged, smoky effect is the way to go this fall. You can even amp it up with soft shades of brown to add some dimension.
You can't go wrong with the classic red lip. During the fall, I usually go for warmer, darker reds. This fall, purple and plum colors are all the rage, so I'd say step out of your comfort zone and throw in some unusual colors you don't usually go for. I know I will!
