I decided to make a little checklist for y'all, think of it as a Fall Beauty To-Do. These aren't the law by any means, just some little tweaks to make to your beauty routine. I've got drugstore and luxury suggestions, as always.
This all depends on where you live, but in the colder months, even though I do not tan anymore, my skin is a little lighter. It's around this time of year I switch my foundation for a shade lighter.
This too depends on location, but your foundation type might switch up during cooler months. I have some foundations that are perfect for summer but are way too drying for fall and winter. I switch those out.
Did the summer heat fry your hair? Does the drier winter air cause frizz in your hair? Try some sort of a hair conditioning treatment. This could be a simple deep contioner, like the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle or Sally Hershberger 24 K Get Gorgeous. For a more intense hair masque, Davines NouNou is amazing or L'Oreal Oleo Therapy Deep Recovery Mask.
What kind of facial cleanser do you use? Do you ever switch it up in the cooler months? Sometimes gel cleansers can be a bit drying when the temperature drops and that tight, pulling feeling is plum awful. I suggest cleansing balms--see my full list of suggestions here.
You knew this was coming. It just isn't fall without a switch out of a darker lip color. But dark lips seem SO intimidating, right? It's all about finding the right formula and the right shade for you. I have tons of suggestions, if you need them.
- Balm--Fresh Sugar Berry is a great natural color
- Lip Crayons--These come in matte and shiny finishes. I love Revlon's.
- Liquid Lipstick--I tend to go to a matte lip in the fall, but I know that's not everyone's cup of tea. Check out this list of demi-matte liquid lipsticks that aren't drying!
- Berry Lipsticks--With these, go as intense as you feel comfortable with. TIP: To warm up to the idea, try swiping some on your finger and then dab the color on lips for a wash of darker color.

And finally, finally, let's talk about moisturizing that skin. You might need to make a swap for something heavier. You might need to add in a facial mask here or there--check out my Sheet Mask Reviews for more info. TULA has been just the thing lately for my skin. Belif will be on the list once it's a little cooler. And I'm still loving Sleep Masks. Get more info on Sleeping Mask Reviews.
