SUMMER TO FALL Cosmetic Bag Swaps

I love the simplicity of makeup for summer, but, there is something about fall that makes me crave burgundy lips and sexy cat eyes. Now that warmer weather is coming to a close, I am switching thing’s around in my cosmetic bag so I can do just that. Ladies, this is my recommended summer to fall makeup swaps checklist.

HOW TO Swap out Your Summer Beauty Bag for Fall


SUMMER TO FALL Makeup Bag Swaps


SWAP TINTED MOISTURIZER FOR FOUNDATION: Naturally bronzed skin starts to diminish along with the warmth of the sun around September. It’s really a tragedy…unless you live in Austin, TX like I do…then you celebrate. With that comes the visibility of more skin flaws and the ditching of your favorite tinted moisturizer. I always recommend a good skincare regimen over hiding behind makeup, but let’s be honest; we all have skin imperfections. So, choose a medium coverage foundation like the Urban Decay Naked or the Beautycounter Tint skin for even and gorgeous skin.

SWAP BLUSH COLORS: Ditch the coral pinks for dusty rose and brown pink blush tones for fall. You could even incorporate berry tone blushes for a fun pop of color. Check out Bobby Brown Blush in Sandry Rose or NARS Mata Hari.

SWAP WARM EYESHADOWS TO JEWEL TONES: That warm summer eyeshadow palette needs to be swapped out for jewel tones ASAP. Choose moody colors like forest green, plumb, raspberry, and bronze for your seasonal fall makeup switch. My favorite simple switch that can be incorporated into what you already have is the TOM FORD Honeymoon quad. It’s one of my absolute faves. But, you might like the NARS Brouse Duo (sold out) as well.

SWAP YOUR SUMMER NUDE GLOSS TO FALL SHADE LIPSTICK: Of course you can always wear one of the best nude lipsticks for fall, but how about a pop of something deeper? Paint your pout with a gorgeous shade of burgundy or even a dark red lip to pair with the changing colors of the seasons. If you’re not up for wearing something full coverage like the Bite Beauty Smoky Plumb, try out the Beautycounter Plum Lip Sheer instead.
