A hot cup of coffee and puppy snuggles… Is there any better way to start a Fall morning? Not in my book! Mornings tend to be so rushed so I love to give myself a little extra time to take the first hour of the day a little slower. Sometimes a slower start makes for a more peaceful day, especially when the weather is cooling down.
Your beauty regimen should change, just like your wardrobe, with the seasons. As we prepare to head into colder temps, we need to take a good look at our daily beauty routine and see what steps and products need to be updated. Here are five beauty steps I like to incorporate every Fall and Winter.
I’m huge into exfoliation all year. With colder temperatures comes being exposed to heat from furnaces and fires as well as hot water, all in a desperate attempt to stay warm. The warmth is necessary and oh-so-good in those freezing cold moments, but it definitely wreaks havoc on our skin. Skin gets dried out and may even start to crack. The solution? Remove that dead skin. You should be exfoliating your face and body at least weekly to keep the flakes away. If you’re like me, and want to keep your skin glowing all year long, try this daily exfoliator from Christie Brinkley. For an all-out spa night at home, this Bliss Hot Salt Scrub is positively divine.
You must follow up exfoliation with moisture. I believe the most under-moisturized and forgotten parts of the body are the neck and décolleté. We so often forget to continue the treatment on our faces, down to our neck and chest area. This moisture treatment from Christie Brinkley is especially for those under-loved areas.
3. Fresh Skin
Beautiful, fresh skin is always in season. This four pack of Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponges is under $20 and will keep your makeup application flawless all season long. This Bliss “Stay”cation Long Wear Foundation paired with Cargo’s HD Pressed Powder will have your skin looking seriously flawless this Fall. Both products provide coverage while allowing your natural glow to shine through. But, if you’re like me, you still want to glow (aka your highlight game to be on point) so top this duo off with my go-to daily highlighter, theBalm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter.
4. Neutral Eyes
Okay, okay… I love neutral eyes every day of my life. I especially love neutral eyes during Fall because, let’s be honest, Fall has officially been dubbed the, “Dark/Bold Lip Season.” There’s a time and a place for everything. But wearing a dark, bold lip with a bold cat eye every single day of the season is not ever going to happen for me. Wearing a dark, bold lip with a neutral eye is the perfect way to balance everything out. Don’t get me wrong, there will be plenty of bold eye/bold lip moments for me, just not every day. This Love Your Selfie palette from PUR Cosmetics has a great selection of matte and shimmer neutral shades for Fall.
5. Statement Lashes
Last but not least, lashes. Statement lashes are show stopping. That’s all there is to it. The Lorac PRO Fiber Mascara packs a super voluminous punch to your eyelashes.
