Transitioning From Summer to Fall Makeup

Ah fall. The air is crisp, the nights are cold and you can wear cozy lightweight sweaters everyday….NOT!!

I don’t know about ya’ll but I live in Northern California where it is still 90 degrees😩😩 I am sweating in jeans and a t-shirt in protest of the hot weather and if I didn’t wear such good-quality make-up it would be melting off!

Because fall is such a fickle season in my neck of the woods, transitioning my make-up from summer brights to fall’s deeper hues can be challenging. Can I wear a plum lip yet? Should I tone down my bright blush? Am I really ready for all these browns and nudes?

Fortunately there really are no hard and fast rules for this dilemma. I do not abide by the accepted rules of fashion. I wear white whenever I damn well please and plum lips in the heat of summer. My motto is “you do you baby boo”. You should wear what makes you feel fabulous no matter what the season, and rock whatever lip and eye look makes you feel like a badass diva.

Here are some of my favorite looks that go can from summer days to crisp fall nights:

The Turquoise on the lid is what really makes this a great transistion eye look and the terracotta color that the Rustic Brown and Bandana Shimmer make is the perfect little nod to fall.

Next up, an always classic purple look:

I firmly beleive purple is the best color ever. It goes with everything, everyone looks good in it and it just reminds me of happy times. For this look, Siara uses Onyx to darken Amethyst. She then uses an ombré effect to complete the look, ending with the soft Whisper Pink on the brow bone.

Finally, this very iconic Fall look:

This one is my go-to eye look. It looks polished without being complicated. Garnet is the perfect crease and outter corner color for that much-needed definition and Sandstone Pearl Shimmer really highlights the look and brightens the eye.

I hope these looks give you some inspiration for the coming months!
