5 Expert Tips For Taking Your Makeup From Summer to Fall

Before Fall officially hits, it's time to start thinking about transitioning your makeup bag for the new season. Jessica Scantlin, a makeup artist from Blushington Beauty Lounge, shares her Summer-to-Fall beauty advice with us below.

1. Toss your shimmering bronzer: When it comes to your Fall makeup palette, one of the first things to stash away is your golden bronzer. "If you want to use bronzer, opt for a matte bronze instead of a shimmered bronze," Scantlin says. "Also, when using an illuminator in the Fall, try choosing few specific areas that you would like to highlight, and do so in a small dose."

2. Keep some color in your makeup bag: "Keep all of your colorful lipsticks, shadows, and colored mascara," Scantlin says. "These are easy products to go from Summer to Fall." She recommends the traditional gray, taupe, bronze, and plums for your shadow, but you can use the bright blue or electric purple from your Summer makeup as an accent on your lower lash line.

3. Add depth to your lipstick: "In Summer, we keep it minimal with a pop of color on the lips. However, Fall is the perfect time to use those colors in a richer and darker shade," Scantlin explains. So if you wore a soft rose all Summer, try trading it in for a bold burgundy or deep red-violet hue for Fall.

4. Bring out the jewel tones: "In Fall, we see a lot of jewel tones on the eyes, but you can transition the look into a more sultry style," says Scantlin. To do this, bring the shadow down to your lower lash line, and to add more intensity, smudge a liner on top.

5. Try an ombré plum lip: When colder weather hits, it's time to amp up the dramatic effect of your makeup. One of Scantlin's easiest ways to do this is to work a trendy ombré lip. "The way to get a pretty plum pout with an ombré effect is by starting from the outside of your lips and working your way in toward the center," she explains. Start by lining your lips with a dark liner. Then, apply a coordinating lipstick shade without filling in the entire lip. Finish by sweeping on a lighter shade in the same color family on the inner section. "Top that off with a clear gloss, and you'll have a fun, trendy ombré lip for the Fall season."
