When the cold weather hits it's all about bundling up and getting cozy, but what does it mean for your makeup? Fall is a great time for you to get creative and step outside of your comfort zone. Here's a quick and easy makeup routine for Fall that can be achieved in just a few steps.
Step 1: Moisturize your skin
It's always very important to moisturize the skin, no matter what the season. However, when the colder weather hits, the air gets drier, which then causes our skin to become dehydrated. Applying a thicker moisturizer, such as Origins Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Moisturizer ($40), prior to makeup application will help keep your skin from drying out, and it will also help your base products to apply much smoother.
Step 2: Apply a moisturizing foundation
If you have dry skin, this is definitely a must! You want to prevent your skin from becoming even more dry, so using a moisturizing foundation like Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm ($54) will give some coverage while also supplying your skin with extra hydration. It will give you a dewy look, and the SPF will keep your skin protected.
Step 3: Show off those eyes
Playing with rich, deep colors and jewel tones is a great way to transform your look for the season. Try darkening up your look with the new Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con palette in The Vamp ($59). The deeper shades are perfect for Fall.
Step 4: Big, bold brows
Gorgeous, full brows are a huge trend this season. Channel your inner Cara Delevingne and pencil in your brows to give them some extra shape and definition, and set the look with a brow gel. Try the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Genius Kit ($24).
Step 5: Bold lips
If you aren't a fan of the smoky eye look, you can choose to play up your lips instead. Keep your eyes neutral, and go for a dark velvety red for a classic look or a deep berry hue to vamp it up. Give the Lime Crime Velvetine in Red Velvet ($17) or the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Venom ($22) a go.
