Transition your Summer Beauty Routine into Fall Fabulous

As Labor day has come and gone and people are settling back into school, work and a fall routine everything can seem overwhelming compared to the slow-paced summer. Here are 5 tips to quickly transition your summer makeup into flawless fall looks, as seen on the runway!

Getting Skintimate

Dewy is out for fall. And so is flat-looking overly matte skin. Instead, there have been a number of products that have surfaced that provide great coverage, but still let your natural skin show through. Instead of looking too dewy, or too matte, these formulas provide the perfect balance.

Crimson Hues

That’s right cranberry, rust and crimson hues are in for this fall. These colors are definitely easier to incorporate with your fall lip colors, but it is absolutely stunning when used on the eyes! Red eyeshadow may be intimidating, but try dabbing a small amount in the middle of your eyelid, or blend well into the crease leaving everything else neutral.


No More Neutrals

The nudes, corals, pretty pinks and french manis are out! Three hot nails shades this fall include purple-greys, deep navys and greyish greens. We love the trend of earthy grey tones that are gracing the shelves for fall.

Sheer Pops

We love the deep hues of fall lips. The plums, maroons and deep shades are extremely sexy and feminine. This fall we are seeing a lot of sheer shades. Instead of full color, there are so many pigmented stains and sheer glosses hitting the market.

From Fruity to Full

A great way to transition from summer into fall is to change up your scent. Swap out our citrus and floral scents for deep, woody scents. The cooler it gets, the warmer the scent – it’s a great way to get settled into the swing of fall.

MYD Shares some Great Glosses

After last week’s post on Lime Crime’s velvet, matte lip gloss (if you missed it, check it out here) – we decided we wanted to share more glosses in a variety of great formulas and colors. 

Bite Beauty Cinnamon Lip Plumping Oil

This unique gloss pairs the hydrating benefits of Argan Oil with the antioxidant power of resveratrol. This, with the subtle tingle and plumping effects make this gloss an incredible multi-tasker.
Makeup For Ever Aqua Rouge
This is an incredible product because it is both a lip gloss and a lip stain. The purpose behind this gloss was to create bold color with eye-catching shine without the heavy, sticky formula. As if that wasn’t enough, this gloss doesn’t smudge, transfer or fade!
NARS Satin Lip Pencil
With the right formula, lip pencils can be amazing products. A cross between a lip stick and a lip pencil, this product glides on easily with soothing nutrients and Vitamin E. This creamy, long-wear pencil is a must-have!
Buxom Full-Bodied Lip Stick
This lip stick comes in the most incredible shades and its formula contains hyaluronic acid which provides time-release moisture. This lipstick looks great, moisturizes and will plump your lips. 
Givenchy Le Rouge
We adore the texture of this lipstick. It is a creamy texture that dries semi-matte which looks great in the bold shades it is available in. Not to mention that the the leather element on the lipstick cap – makes this lipstick so chic!
Yves St. Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine
These vibrant lipsticks have great lasting power and a beautiful luminous shine with a super-smooth application. This formula will protect your lips from free radicals and seal in the moisture.

Spotlight On: LimeCrime Velvetines Lip Gloss

Today we wanted to put a spotlight on Lime Crime’s Velvetine Lip Gloss. This gloss goes on glossy and then dries matte with a “touch-proof finish.” They come in two colors (seen below) on the left is Suede Berry, and Red Velvet is on the right.

These are great, affordable glosses if you are looking for bold, matte lips. Be sure to exfoliate and moisturize your lips well before using this gloss. Applying a matte formula to dry or cracked lips will only emphasize the dryness.
