Summer to Fall Makeup Routine

by

Each season brings forth a few favorite beauty details that we find the most joy in during that time. With winter, we are met with red lips and dark rich tones; the blooming of spring brings us colored liner and pastel hues; and with summer comes dewy, glowy skin and bright nail polishes. Come fall, we are reaching for dark lip products and warm, metallic eyeshadows. Now, the transition between these seasons can be quite surprising no matter how many times we experience it. Often times we find the change in weather has happened overnight, suddenly and without warning. In the mornings, we reach for one thing after another, unsure of what would be most comfortable throughout the day. This not only goes for the outfits strewn across our floors but our makeup choices as well when rifling through what our skin will favor the most.

 

Recently, we bid adieu to summer and said hello to autumn’s crisp richness, pumpkin-spice everything, and almost magical makeup we surely miss once it passes. The change of the dog days of summer to the brisk days of fall can have our skin in a tizzy, especially when it’s been loving BB creams and dewy foundations. Change doesn’t have to leave you feeling flustered and at a loss, though; switching up your summer to fall makeup routine can be as swift as the leaves changing color. Featuring matte skin, vampy lips, and shimmery tones, here are five must-have products to cover your fall makeup routine in a cinch.

Stila Stay All Day Cover Powder Finish Foundation & Concealer ($36 at Sephora, Ulta, and stilacosmetics.com)
Stila Stay All Day Cover Powder Finish Foundation & Concealer is a foundation and concealer combo that is just the one you need for your everyday makeup routine (and if you are traveling anytime soon!). This compact packaging has a concealer and mirror on top that detaches to reveal the foundation right underneath. Talk about innovative! Both creamy formulas provide full coverage that blends seamlessly during application and then dries into a soft powder finish. I especially love the concealer’s peach undertones, which helps neutralize discoloration and conceals any blemish in a pinch. Just a quick tap of it under my eyes and on anything that I want to hide, and I’m set for up to 12 hours. That’s right: it’s a 12-hour wear foundation + concealer.

The Strobing Products You Need to Try

by

The Starbucks Unicorn Frappe is not the only mythical beast-inspired product this year. Holographic strobing products inspired by fairies, unicorns, mermaids, and celestial beings are taking over the cosmetic market this spring. We have sampled, swatched, and assessed these magical products for how close they come to how they are advertised. To get a better idea of everyone’s go-to products, we scoured through reviews to compare to our own experiences with the holographic makeup and selected a few trending strobing products you need to try.

 

Milk’s Makeup Holographic Stick, $28, milkmakeup.com
Milk just released a holographic stick ($28) that comes in two iridescent shades: Golden Peach and Supernova. It is vegan and cruelty-free and packed with skin-friendly ingredients like coconut oil, mango butter, and avocado oil. It received a 4/5 on Sephora out of 299 reviews. The brand claims that it compliments all skin tones but from reading the reviews, it seems that the Supernova shade does not show up on pale skin tones. Other concerned users mentioned that it doesn’t seem to blend well with foundations and instead ends up wiping the foundation off. However, it can be applied to the face and body and the Supernova shade produces a beautiful violet sheen.

5 Eyeshadow Palettes for Fall

by

Warm tones, metallic details, and rich hues—the color palette of fall is hands down one of my favorites. Whether I’m creating a daytime look with variations of browns and oranges, or it’s a night out and I’m feeling a bit mysterious with deep plum and burgundy pigments, it’s a season where you can be inspired by everything. From crisp, fallen leaves to spooky Halloween movies, you can make a look from it all with the help of a versatile eyeshadow palette. The question is, though, which one do you pick? With so many eyeshadow palettes making their debut every season, it can be a task in itself trying to choose which ones to add to your shopping cart.

Luckily, I’m making it easy for you to make up your mind by sharing five must-grab eyeshadow palettes for fall looks that I live by. Each of these palettes consists of blendable, pigmented shades that anyone can use to help create a stunning eye look, no matter if you’re just a makeup newbie or a professional makeup artist by trade. These palettes are made to put your beauty skills to the test. Grab your very own—or all five—today and share your fall looks with us on Twitter @ClicheMag!

Fall Beauty Trends

by

We welcome back crisp, fall mornings filled with the smell of pumpkin spice lattes and warmed by cozy, oversized sweaters this season. Finally being able to enjoy delicious hot beverages and fuzzy apparel aren’t the only fall factors we’re excited for. It’s time to replace the bright, bold colors of summer in our makeup bags with the moody, shimmery shades of fall. Think dark liner, metallic eyeshadow, and rich, colored lips for a little preview of what fall beauty is all about. These beauty trends are what we really have been craving! Well, next to the free candy given out on Halloween, of course. Now if only we could score beauty products along with that candy!

Revlon Sultry Samba

Rich Lips
Our favorite lips shades all hold that dramatic factor that we can only get away with during the autumn season. Now is when we can adorn the wildest, moodiest colors on our lips. If you’re new to bold, dark lips, check out some of our favorites: Nars’ Satin Lipstick in Afghan Red, Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Sultry Samba, and M.A.C’s lipstick in Rebel. Rich hues of maroon, bright pigments of pink, and the deep, satin effect of purple are what we sure are taking advantage of each week—it’s safe to say my shade of Nyx’s Matte Lipstick in Merlot will be all but gone by December!

Shimmery, Metallic Eyeshadows
Let your eyelids flutter with a metallic sheen of gold, nude, silver, or even green. It’s a must-try trend this fall because it can easily be added to any makeup look. Stila provides gorgeous cream-to-shadow products in full-on metallic shades from Metallic Dusty Rose to Titanium. With these shadows, add some shimmer to a smoky eye for more depth or to an everyday look for some allure. Metallic eyeshadows bring that extra touch of glam that makes our beauty techniques even more fabulous. Try this shimmery trend this fall and see how many eyes will be on yours!

Dark Liners
Brightly-colored eyeliners were all the rage this past summer, but it’s time to welcome back the classic black. Black will always be the new black. You can’t go wrong at all with a long-lasting ebony eyeliner. Some of my must-haves are Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner, Maybelline’s Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner, Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner and Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil. Each one is a definite keeper for being bold, smudge-proof, and easy-to-style. You’ll be rocking liner just as mod as Twiggy’s was in the 60’s!
Marc Jacobs Bronzer

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil

Glowing Bronzer
Even though the summer has passed, our handy bronzers are still kept in tow. They add that extra glow we want year-round in hundreds of shades that we can’t get over. For fall, it’s all about warm undertones in shades of cocoa, buff pinks, and gold finishes. Pat down your cheeks with a touch of Benefit’s Sun Beam, a blend of Marc Jacobs’ O!Mega Bronze, or a sweep of Too Faced’s Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer. Your cheeks will be as bright as ripe apples this season.
