Looks like fall has made its debut and it’s time to pack up our bubblegum pink lip glosses, neon-colored eyeliners and ultra-shimmery bronzers. Don’t worry yourself too much, they’ll be back next year! In the meantime, we’re preparing ourselves — and more importantly, our makeup routines — for the joys of autumn. This means plenty of rich shadows, vampy lipstick shades and updated foundation formulas. We support any excuse to buy more makeup. Here’s what you need to prepare, too!
1. Set your shimmery bronzers and blushes to the side. Pick up a matte bronzer and highlighter so we can get to business … contouring and strobing business, that is. Dewy skin is always in, but sparkles on sparkles is more of a summer thing. Sculpted cheekbones, a touch of highlighter (in all the right places) and a warm, fall flush are what you should be going for.
2. Go for bold. By bold, we are talking lipstick, of course. Yes, you can still hang on to your classic reds and nudes, but swap out your bright oranges and pinks for rich and creamy shades of burgundy, plum, oxblood, brown and even violet.
