Fall into the Autumn 2012 Season with a Fresh Routine
Sep 8, 2012 by Harshleen
Tis’ the season to be FALLing-up your regimen!
Summer is slowly coming to an end! It’s time to re-evaluate your current beauty routine and tweak some things around to get ready for the fall season.
One of the easiest ways to get into the fall spirit! Pastels and mints are so last season. Ditch them for some rich and vibrate dark tones. Chocolates, Burgundy, Red, Black, Navy, and even some mauvey grey tones. If you aren’t much of a “color” type of person, nudes look great in all seasons. Since the holidays are coming soon, be sure to stock up on your glitter top coats to add the perfect amount of glisten to your fingertips!
Our beachy summer waves were good to us, but now it’s time to bring out the sleek pony tails and top knot buns. Pin straight hair looks great too! Women also tend to go a few shades darker in the fall, if you aren’t the type to want to change your color, go for a new haircut. Adding layers, bangs, and other face framing styles can definitely add a much softer look and at the same time give you a boost of volume. Remember, healthy hair is always in so be sure to bump up your deep conditioning regimen.
Since the weather isn’t so hot and sticky anymore you can start bringing out your favorite makeup items from the back of your drawer. Full brows are really in for fall since they frame the face so lovely and add structure to your entire look. If you weren’t blessed with much action in the eyebrow department, try adding an eyeshadow or brow pencil in the same shade as your hair color to just fill in your brows lightly. Remember to follow the natural shape of your brow and keep it minimal.
For the eyes, play with your eyeliner and experiment with neutral hues like browns and dark greens to add some color without being too dramatic for the day time. Now is the perfect time to bring out your favorite reds and richer lip colors. For day time, even adding your infamous “your lips but better” color will make all the difference in pulling everything together! So bring out all of your nudes and taupe colors too.
Its time to trade in those tropical and fruity/coconut scents for some warm and comforting fragrances. Some of us have our signature year round scents that we tend to stick to, but you can always add some scented lotions or mists to give you that extra seasonal kick. Warm and spicy scents tend to really be in for fall, since they really mesh well with the colorful leaves. When shopping for fragrances look for key notes like Amber, Ginger Orchid, and Sandalwood.If they tend to be a bit too strong or masculine for you, try a soothing scent with warm vanilla to make it a bit more softer.Source: beautypress.com imagecredit : sheknows.com
