5 Essential Fall Beauty Tips that promise to keep you looking and feeling fabulous all season.
Fall is a gorgeous time of year with vibrant colors and crisp, cool weather. Changing seasons means changing your beauty routine. This can include new makeup colors, a different hairstyle, and a recharged skin routine. The following are 5 essential beauty tips to make sure you're looking your best this fall. 1. Upgrade Your Skin Routine Transitioning from summer to fall means changing your skincare routine. The cool, dry air in autumn means moisturizers should be used more often. Light lotions and creams should be traded for those with a thicker, richer formula. Don't forget, however, to make sure sunscreen is still a part of any moisturizer or makeup you wear during the day. Harmful rays from the sun can damage skin year round. 2. Give Your Hair a Boost Changing your hair can provide a major change in your appearance for the fall. Instead of golden highlights, autumn is the time to experiment with rich auburn or deep chocolate colors. It's also a good idea to give your hair a deep conditioning or hot oil treatment. Taking care of damage from months of saltwater, chlorine, or sun damage will leave hair looking fresh and pretty for the fall. 3. Switch to Deeper, Richer Colors Fall is the time to trade coral and fuchsia lipstick for deep reds and burgundies. Those who want to make an even bolder statement can try colors such as merlot, purple, and almost black. Warmer, darker hues should be used across the board, especially for lips and eyes. As the holidays approach make sure to incorporate jewel tones into your makeup routine. Finally, black eyeliner and lush mascara are a must for beautiful eyes this fall. 4. Change Your Scent Don't forget that your perfume should change along with the season. It's time to put away your tropical and fruity scents. A stronger, even spicier scent is perfect for crisp fall weather. Most scents don't last as long on dry skin so it's important to remember to both moisturize your skin and add a bit more fragrance when weather becomes cool and dry. If you regularly wear a scarf around your neck during the fall don't forget to spritz it before leaving the house. 5. Repack Your Beauty Bag Whether you normally carry a small makeup case or simply pack a few items in your handbag, cooler weather will require different beauty essentials than those used during the summer. A small bottle of hand lotion is a must for fall. Along with your favorite lipstick it's also important to make sure you always have acontainer of lip balm. This will keep lips soft and chap-free during the cooler weather.
