As the weather gets cooler, eyeshadow looks tend to get warmer. Fall is the time to play around with autumn-inspired eyeshadow colors like burgundy and burnt orange. This Huda Beauty palette has a mix of shimmer and matte shades that are heavily concentrated so you don’t have to keep dipping into the palette to create a bold effect. Just add an oversized sweater and some booties for a perfect fall look.
Looking to add some new eyeshadow to your makeup collection on a college student budget? No worries, this reasonably priced NYX palette has a mix of peachy and nude shades that will be perfect for football gameday or a Jackson’s Orchard trip with the girls.
With summer winding down, it may be time to put that tinted moisturizer back in the drawer and transition to a lighter foundation shade with a little more coverage. Revlon Colorstay foundation offers medium coverage with a natural finish and offers shades that can work for all skin tones. For those with combination skin, struggling with oil buildup throughout the day but still having dry areas, this foundation helps combat oily skin without clinging to dry skin.
Just because summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice that beautiful summer glow. Self-tanning lotion is a healthy and cost-effective alternative to tanning beds or spray tans. This gradual-tanning lotion can darken your skin tone and provide much-needed hydration from the recent hot Kentucky summer.
Is your skin as dry as those autumn leaves on the ground? Then it may be time to buy a heavy-duty moisturizer. Neutrogena Hydro Boost is a water-gel lotion that uses hyaluronic acid to keep skin moisturized all day. The water-gel texture allows for deep moisture without leaving a greasy or sticky layer on the skin.
Applying a moisturizing face mask once or twice a week can add much needed hydration to the skin. This Burt’s Bees Intense Treatment Mask would be a great addition to the nightly routine for those who struggle with dry or flaky skin during the colder months.
Fall is also the perfect time to trade in that boring cherry chapstick for some fun seasonal scents. Who wouldn’t want their lips to smell like a marshmallow ghost?
If fun-scented lip balms just don’t cut it for your dry lips, then this lip balm by Jack Black might be just the one for you. When they say intense, they mean it –– Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm helps relieve chapped lips and protect against windburn and intense weather.
Fall brings cooler weather, pumpkin patches and vampy lipstick. Don’t be afraid to exchange your sheer summer lipstick for a darker, more vibrant lip color. This Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Sugar Plum lipstick is a dark cranberry color that will last all day, even while eating all that Halloween candy.
Keep the vampy fall vibes going with a dark nail polish. OPI Nail Lacquer in Black Cherry Chutney is the perfect deep purple for a homemade mani or pedi.
As a new season begins, it may be time to invest in some new makeup brushes. I’m sure all my beauty connoisseurs out there have old makeup brushes and sponges that need to be replaced. So, throw out those dirty sponges and brushes and pick up this Real Techniques brush kit that includes everyday brush essentials and a new beauty sponge to start this season out fresh.
