Fall Beauty Updates.

Can you believe that today is the first day of September? I’m having a hard time with it. As much as I love Fall (it’s my favorite season, and September is also my birthday month), I’m going to miss the summer, and my summer beauty routine too. I love how minimal my beauty routine is during the warmer months. With a little bit of a tan, you don’t need to do much else. Sadly, as the temps drop (and my skin goes back to it’s usual pale shade), I need to put in a little bit more effort.

Today we’re going to talk about my summer beauty routine — and how to transition it to a more Fall appropriate look!

I start with this illuminator/concealer hybrid, which is a genius product. The main product is a tinted moisturizer (with SPF!) that evens out my skin and leaves it dewy + glowing… but there’s a mini concealer in the cap! So I’ll dab that on any red spots and under my eyes… and then move on to bronzer. I love this product though, especially for travel or the gym – it’s so nice having everything in one compact package.

The brand’s bronzer + kabuki brush is next. This is my favorite bronzer right now. I wrote about it earlier this summer (in this post!) and have been using it religiously ever since. The color is really nice as it gives me a subtle glow – never orange or overdone.

After that, it’s pretty simple. On my eyes, just mascara. I love this mascara (for extra oomph and volume). On my lips I’ll add a little bit of this stain (it’s meant for cheeks but so pretty on lips), followed by this gloss. After that, I’ll use a big fluffy brush to apply this finishing powder to set everything in place. And, then I’m done.

To transition to Fall, I do just three things.

  1. Eyeliner. Once the temps cool down I like to have a little more fun with my eye makeup as it isn’t going to end up under my eyes. I love these gel eyeliners as they go on so smoothly and come in a really pretty range of colors. I’ll use Copper Glow to line my top lash line, and then use a bit of Oyster Glow in the corners of my eyes. In a pinch, Oyster Glow also makes for a pretty great highlighter.
  2. Blush. I use the same sheer cheek stain that I used on my lips earlier, except this time I actually put it on my cheeks. I apply three tiny dots to the apples of my cheeks, and blend upward; giving them an instant, pretty flush.
  3. Lipstick. You can’t go wrong with a brighter lip… especially if that tan has faded away. I love this glossy stick in Rosy Red. It’s super glossy and lightweight, but still manages to be ultra pigmented.

    How does the eyeliner stay on? Does it last all day? I have used Pixi products before and they are great, just never used the eyeliner.

      Hi! Yes it does! I was impressed with the wear. That said I do not have oily eyelids, so I generally don’t have a problem with eyeliner coming off. This one is super pigmented.

    I’ll have to check out some of these. Love these beauty posts.

    That illuminating tint and concealor combo looks like it would be super handy, especially when I need a quick touch-up.

    Also- your hair looks beautiful Grace! The color is gorgeous, and it looks so full and long!
