Summer to Fall Makeup

We are just beginning to make way for the transition from summer to fall. While the weather is still scorching, autumn color trends are popping up in stores.

The deep dark colors of autumn can seem a bit heavy early on, especially when it comes to makeup. As a middle ground, these products are bold enough for summer yet rich enough to continue wearing into the fall. Plus, their formulas are lightweight so you don’t feel like your products are melting while you wear them.

These must have products help your look transition seamlessly.

1. Lipstick: NARS, Sheer Lipstick in Tzigane, $26

This lightweight formula hydrates and nourishes lips while adding the perfect hint of color. The sheer tint provides a warm apricot color that is perfect for both seasons.

2. Mascara: Make Up For Ever, Smoky Extravagant Mascara in Black, $24

This mascara lengthens, curls and adds high volume to even the shortest of lashes. The unique cone shaped brush gently separates while still providing covetable volume. Formulated in an ultra black color, your eyes the perfect lift, no matter the season.

3. Single Eyeshadow: Urban Decay, Eyeshadow in Deep End, $18

This bold color is velvety soft and super blendable. Use it alone along the lash line for a bold simplistic summer look or blend it along your lid with rich browns for the perfect fun fall look.

4. Eyeshadow Quad: Covergirl, Eye Enhancers 4 Kit Shadow in Coffee Shop, $6

This affordable shadow kit allows you to transitions from day to night easily. The warm neutral tones can be built up for a more dramatic autumn look, or kept light and bright for the summer.

5. Blush: Laura Mercier, Crème Cheek Color in Praline, $24

This crème formula has buildable soft coverage with a warm, velvety finish. Apply it thicker for the perfect bronzy glow in the summer months and smooth on a soft layer for a rich contour during the fall.

6. Lipgloss: Benefit, Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Poutrageous, $16

Highly pigmented, this bright pink coral color goes on smooth and silky. The bold color makes it a must for summer while the warm undertones are great for autumn.

7. Eyeliner: Stila, Smuge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Damsel, $20

A blackish brown color is great for any eye color. Unlike many brown liners, this dark color has immense depth without being too overwhelming. Its long-wear waterproof formula stays smudge free in the summer heat and will be fade proof for the fall.
