It’s Fall – Time To Branch Out

Let’s face it. You had your summer makeup routine down pat. You could practically put it together with your eyes closed. Well done, but now it’s fall. It’s time to shake things up a bit in the makeup department. The good news this season is that it’s probably even easier now than it was back in July to get a fantastic look in no time at all.

The key phrase to remember as the weather cools down is “natural but better.” Start with what Mother Nature gave you, add some simple embellishment, and you’ll be good to go. But in order to make this work, you need to take good care of both your insides as well as your outsides. Good skin is the foundation of the look. So, eat right, get your rest, and stay hydrated. Exfoliate and moisturize regularly, too. You can’t get a dewy, fresh look if you’re tired and your skin is too.

Once you’re on top of your skin care game, the makeup tips for fall are simple but effective. The formula is to minimize foundation, add concealer if you really need it, then dab on some gloss for your lips and something equally as simple for your lids. Voila. Some celebrity makeup artists are even making their products do double and triple duty to achieve a monochromatic look for lips, blush and lids. For an uber-simplified version, use an illuminating moisturizer for your skin and a bit of gel for your brows, a couple of coats of mascara and some nude lip-gloss. You’ll be out the door in less than two minutes.
