Awesome Autumnal Looks

Although we enjoy the cozy clothes, golden leaves, and log fires of autumn, it is not good for our skin and hair. Colder weather necessitates more intensive products than you might use in the summer. So now is the ideal time to spruce up your makeup bag as the leaves begin to fall and the sun starts to fade.

Make sure to enter the new season with the best beauty essentials available and learn how to transform your summer glow into Autumn glam. To assist, we’ve compiled a list of the makeup must-haves you should stock up on in the coming months.

1. Gel Balm Cleanser

As autumn approaches, it is natural for our skin to begin to dry out. While thick, rich cleansers are usually too much for some people’s oily summer skin, there’s something so soothing about massaging your stressed-out complexion with this melting cleansing balm before bed.

2. Lipstick in Darker Shades

Dare to experiment with vampy lipstick shades. Consider these the autumn lip colors de jour: maroon, plum, and a rich Bordeaux. To change your look, try matte and smooth finishes. If you’re wearing this bold shade during the day, go easy on the eye makeup so you don’t look overly excited for Halloween.

3. Dark Shades of Eyeshadow

I don’t know about you, but for many autumn beauty essentials, the spooky season means wearing dark eye shadows such as reds, browns, greys/blacks, and so on. Last year, a friend bought a “Haunted House” eye shadow palette and fell in love with it. Because it was a Halloween special, I don’t think they do it anymore, but you can probably find something similar.

They had a great selection of dark purples, reds, blacks, and browns, as well as some more “shimmery” colors! As a result, having the right eye shadow palette full of those dark colors is a beauty essential for me as we transition into autumn.

4. Sunscreen Serum

If you haven’t already started using a serum in your daily routine, you should. Try to find one designed so that the active ingredients can penetrate deep into your skin and lock in moisture. In addition, you want one with hydrating properties that will help protect your skin from the sun due to the SPF in the formula. Yes, you should wear sunscreen all year long.

5. Day Cream

What is a skincare routine without a fantastic Day Cream? First, find a formula containing marine bamboo to help fight visible lines and wrinkles while providing a poreless canvas for your makeup. Then, combine it with the rest of your morning skincare routine for a beautiful soft-focus look that makes you look like you just stepped out of a photoshoot!

6. Dewy Foundation

For the most part, the fall season brings colder weather, which means your skin’s natural glow from the summer will be gone. When fall arrives, many people prefer a dewy foundation over a matte foundation; this helps to balance out the dryness that your skin experiences in the fall.

7. Lip Balms

Your lips are the first thing to suffer during the winter. Carry a good hydrating lip balm with you wherever you go. You can choose colorless ones if you do not want a tinted lip balm. An excellent hydrating lip balm will take care of your chapped lips.

8. Moisture Spray

This is ideal when you’re going straight from work to dinner and your face needs a little pick-me-up. Furthermore, my wife would never consider flying anywhere without this little miracle worker in her handbag, as it makes her look much fresher than she actually is.

She has one with repairing plant oils, which perfectly hydrates her frequently thirsty skin. Choose one that has been shown to provide relief when your skin is stressed or flares up.

9. Hand Scrub

Your feet were pampered all summer after a season filled with sandy beaches and bright pedicures. It’s time to treat your hands to some much-needed TLC with a lovely Hand Scrub. A gentle scrub stimulates skin cell regrowth, while shea butter moisturizes, leaving your hands soft, supple, and ready for winter. For a full body scrub, repeat this routine on your feet.
