Fall Transitions

Friday, August 30, 2013

 

Today's face of the day is also this week's Beauty Panel challenge, which was all about transitioning beauty / skincare routines from summer to fall. (Unfortunately) that time is upon us. 

When I think fall, no matter the trends, I always think of deep colours (like plums, crimsons, and reds). I love wearing a berry stain with a clean, matte face. I'm currently loving a new TwistUp Retractable Lipstick Crayon from Annabelle called Cherry. It's a rich colour that's perfect for fall. Even though the TwistUps are comfortable to wear and very creamy, I still like to add a glossier finish using a limited edition Maybelline Babylips in Pink Shock.

The rest of my face is simple. I'm wearing the new Covergirl Clean Whipped Creme foundation. I've been playing around with it for a couple of months now and I like it. It's the perfect "matte-not-dry" finish for me. It love the light (buildable to medium) coverage, so I don't find it really noticeable or heavy on the skin. Look out for a review soon :).

No blush (surprise, surprise). Just a bit of bronzer to warm up the face & define the cheeks.

I've also been bringing out all of my "almost black" polishes. Here I'm wearing RGB in Deep, but I also love the classic OPI Lincoln Park After Dark. I'm also partial to greige shades, like Essie Chinchilly and OPI You Don't Know Jacques.

While there were more rainy days than sunny days, I still had a blast this summer & I hope you did, too! If you want to check out my original post & 7 other great fall transitions, check out FashionMagazine.com!

  1. One of the big things for me is that as my tan starts to fade I have to start going back to cooler shades. I'm also excited for vampy and grey nail polish!

  2. Awesome post :) I also turn towards berry hues, and a somewhat more dramatic look.

  4. Great bag. But shame on the hardware. The difference would drive me nuts. Did you contact roots to let them know they have you the wrong hardware or did you not want to deal with the hassle?
