It’s a strange, in-between time of year. The limbo of summer melting into fall. “SumAutumn” if you will. We are just on the very brink of binging on sweaters, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and Instagramming our rain boots in the fallen leaves. But until then, we can slowly slip our makeup into a more fall-like feel before going fall monty (get that one?). This can easily be done via a slightly deepened color palette, adjusting textures to be more matte, and turning our color temperature just a little cooler.
Making your lip color more fall appropriate is very simple. It only requires taking a summer bright and deepening it a bit—making a cherry a black cherry. Matte textures always feel a bit more autumnal as well, so even blotting your usual color lipstick to be a more matte finish will do the trick. You can also try layering a deep colored gloss over your usual color.

Fall Eye Makeup
Summer eyes are golden, bronze, and shimmer like the sun. As the sun begins to set earlier and earlier, it’s time for some moodier shades. I am really feeling navy for this fall as well as gray/brown mushroom shades. Again, more matte shadows can be incorporated, giving a nod to cashmere and suede textures.

Fall Face Makeup
Here’s where texture and formula play a big part. Shifting your formulas from powders to creams will help to accommodate dryer skin and give a richer application to glide over any rough dry patches that may spring up.
