Transitioning Your Makeup Routine for Fall: Tips and Tricks

We’re on the cusp of fall, arguably the best season of all! The sweaters, the cozy blankets, the style, the pumpkin spice, the changing leaves. It’s the best!! It’s easy to be bombarded with everything you need to buy to stay on top of the fall trends. But just as I recommend with style, to invest in only a few new versatile pieces, invest in just a few fall makeup shades to stay fresh. Here are some tips and tricks for transitioning your makeup routine for fall with these fall makeup ideas…

How to Transition Your Makeup Routine for Fall

It can be really easy to be tempted to buy ALL THE THINGS with a new season! You want to look on trend. You want to look fresh. You want to look your best! All the influencers are showing us all the cute sweaters, dresses, sneakers, boots, jeans, and jackets we need to buy to look great. And I do want to look great. But I don’t want to break the bank. I always invest in a few key pieces that can be worn in many ways and help me stay on trend for the season without buying ALL THE THINGS.

And the same goes for your fall makeup routine. There’s no need to get a whole new collection of makeup to transition your makeup for fall. As long as your foundation shade hasn’t changed (which it may have since you may have been playing a lot in the sun this summer!), then you don’t need to buy everything from scratch.

To look fresh for fall, just add a few new shades that will help you match the fall vibe. By just adding a few new eyeshadow colors, blush colors, and lip colors, you will be ready to feel all the fall feels!

Eyeshadow Colors to Wear for Fall

When I think of fall, I think of all the fall colors. The colors from the changing leaves, the plaid shirts, the cozy blankets, the warm drinks. Your fall makeup should embrace those colors: oranges, reds, browns, bronzes, nudes.

Update your fall makeup look by adding a few new eyeshadow colors in your collection. Choose shades that can be mixed and matched and worn in more than one way. I always like to have a mix of light, medium, and dark shades in my palette so I can get different looks.

Blush Colors to Wear for Fall

You don’t need to buy a ton of new blush shades for fall. Just pick 1-3 new shades to match the fall vibes.

Did you know that you can layer blush or even mix your blush shades together to get a different look?! I love to mix Ruby and Nude together to get a pretty dusty rose color. Ruby and Nude look great on their own but mixed together you have a new shade you can wear! Be creative with your makeup and get it to go further.

Here are some great options to wear:

Fall Lip + Cheek Colors

Royal |  Madrid |  Saffron |  Plum |  Scarlet |  Sandstone

Lip Colors to Wear for Fall

Great lip colors for fall are nudes, reds, purples, and dark berries. Think rich and bold. Dark and sassy. Here are some great options to wear:
