Today is officially the first day of fall! It's really not too big of a difference in my schedule or anything since I've been in school for a few weeks, but it can bring a change in skincare, makeup, and things relating to beauty. So this upcoming week, I'll be posting various articles related to this season for a mini "Back To Fall" series. In my last post, I told you about some products I found are great for this season. Here, I'll be sharing you some tips on how to make your transitions to suit the season. Hope you enjoy!
1. Use a tinted moisturizer. Or a foundation. But since most people already know that, I need to go in depth on this. These are great because it contains the hydrating benefits of a moisturizer, but can also be used to even your skin tone because of the tint in it. I'll be doing this probably most of the time, especially during school since it's a lot faster (I can just skip the whole moisturizer step) and it is easier to apply than a full foundation since you can easily just use your fingers. You can make your own by just mixing your regular moisturizer with your favorite foundation.
2. Go for a berry or coral lip color. These colors work great for fall. Look for something that you think will go well with autumn leaves. This isn't really the best time for pale pinks or reds.
3. Use more bronzer or a deeper toned blush. You can even skip the blush. Contour is definitely something that should be more of the focus, we're no longer looking for that beachy kind of glow, we're looking for a pumpkin and cider kinda glow (um, at least I think so) ;).
4. Moisturize more often than usual. Every tends to get flaky and dry during the colder months, even people who are normally oily. Thus, it is even MORE important to moisturize your skin, which is why I said tinted moisturizer is so important in my first tip.
5. Exfoliate. This is extremely important! During autumn, you're going to want to get rid of those dead skin cells, and so you should try to do this at least once a week. You can use a more gentle one like Aveeno's, or try St. I've's or Burt's Bees scrubs. You can also make your own using lemon and sugar.
These are the basic tips I find are important. I really hope these were helpful for you all :).
