7 Tips for Changing your Makeup for Fall

1. Seasonal Shades

You can start by changing makeup for fall by subtly incorporating deeper, richer shades of eye shadows, blush and lipstick.  You can also start wearing some more autumn-friendly nail colors like choosing navy blues, rich burgundies or pale colors that were hot on the runways. 

2. Your Folly Beach Tan... 

Although self tanner might have been one of your summer beauty staples, cutting back on self-tanner use is one of the key steps in how to change your makeup for fall. Spray tan for special occasions and just use a bronzer on your face to add a little faux glow, but not like you had this summer.  We love warmth by Bare Minerals.

3. Sheer to Solid

Moving your lip colors from a sheer lip gloss to a more solid and pigmented lipstick is a leading tip in adjusting summer to fall makeup. For transitioning to fall, add more layers to your existing lip color in the beginning then make the change to a more bold and denser textured lipstick later.

4. Color Shift

Instead placing bronzer on the apples of your cheeks or other places on your face where the sun hits it naturally, use it underneath the cheekbones to contour the face instead for a polished look.

5. Concealer

Concealer can take even the most tired and discolored skin and turn it into well-rested and even-colored face in just one step. Use concealer to cover up any sun damaged, uneven skin color or redness and waltz into autumn looking flawless!

6. Pencil liner

If you use lip liner, you’ll want to update a summer-friendly tinted lip liner with a darker toned liner to mix in with your summer lip color. If you don’t use lip liner, you can still rock your favorite coral lipsticks just blend in a little bit of a darker hue to winterize the look.

7. Don't be afraid of Black

When changing makeup for fall, be sure to bring back black as well as other dark colors like eye shadows. If you’re one of those women who tend to shy away from wearing black eye makeup in the summer for fear of it looking too heavy, reintroduce the shade by wearing a fierce cat eye or smokey eye.
