Today is the first day of Autumn, which means it's time to update your makeup regimen just a little bit. No need to revamp your entire look immediately: it's much more fun to slowly incorporate some of Fall's trends into your look. Here are some small changes you can make to ease into the new season:
- Lay off the bronzer. This may seem like a no-brainer, but lots of people cling on to the last remnants of Summer by supplementing their fading tan with bronzing products. Rosy cheeks are the trend for Fall — on your way there, try a rosy cheek stain with a little bronzer over it. Jemma Kidd Rosy Glow Lip & Cheek Tint is my favorite — the stain really sinks in, so the texture won't mix weirdly with your bronzer.
- Go for a metallic nail polish shade. Dark berry colors with reflective pigments and grays were all over Fall runways. Try Cover Girl Boundless Color Nail Polish in Plum Pudding.
- Give up the gloss. Makeup artists have been telling me for months that sheer lipstick is replacing gloss, and I can't think of a better time to embrace that then when it gets windy (no one wants her hair stuck to a pair of chapped lips . . . ew!). Try Revlon Sheer Colorstay Lipcolor.
- Practice your smoky eye. Save it for nighttime for now, but the smoky eye, especially with hints of silver or bronze, is big for Fall. Check out Oscar de la Renta's Fall runway to see what I mean.
