5 End Of Summer Beauty Tips

makeup, beauty, tricks

With September just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about getting ready for fall! Personally, we’ve got pumpkin spiced lattes and cable-knit sweaters on our mind. But, before you jump into apple picking and hay rides, make sure to update your makeup for the new season! It’s important to transition your routine as the seasons change, so we created a list of five tips to get you ready for fall.

foundation, makeup

Get a new foundation

With the summer months comes warmth, sunshine, and tan skin! This means that the foundation you wore all year probably doesn’t match your skin tone anymore. So, it’s time to head over to Sephora and find your perfect match! Let’s be honest, there’s nothing worse than streaky foundation and a blunt line under your chin.

Change your blush

You’ve probably been rocking soft pink tones on your cheeks all summer long, which provided a stunning glow. As we transition into fall, however, it’s time to break out the warmer tones. Out with the pink and in with the mauve! These earthy tones will give off the perfect autumn vibes.

eyeshadow, makeup

Switch up your eyeshadow routine

Similar to your blush tones, it’s time to make the eyeshadow switch, as well. Instead of those bright, vibrant summer colors, start thinking about neutrals and browns. These looks are simple, yet so stunning! Not to mention, they go with nearly any outfit, so you’ll never have to worry about color coordinating.

Swap out your lip shades

Lips are one of the most crucial aspects of your transition from summer to fall makeup, because they make such a statement. While your summer lip shades were vibrant and fun, you can have just as much fun with some vampy fall shades! When switching to deeper autumnal tones, definitely don’t be afraid to go bold.

MOISTURIZE!

Last but definitely not least… MOISTURIZE! It’s no secret that when the weather starts to cool down, the dryness sets in. And, no one likes to put a fresh face of makeup onto dry skin and lips! So, save yourself the trouble and make moisturizing a part of your daily routine. It’s as simple as carrying an EOS lip balm in your bag!

We hope you love these ideas for transitioning from summer to fall makeup!

5 Must-Have Back-To-School Products

back to school, products

We seriously can’t believe it’s August! Like most summers, this one flew by, and now we’re realizing that we have so much to do before September rolls around. So, we decided to get a head start on our back-to-school shopping by making a list of our top five must-have products.

Cute Pen Set

With cute pens like these, you’ll always be on point… no pun intended! Seriously though, what’s better than looking good and feeling smart?! We don’t know about you, but when our desk supplies are fresh and new, we feel on top of the world. Not to mention, these pens by Poppin are luxe gel ink, so they write smoother than anything you’ve ever used! We’re basically obsessed with this brand when it comes to office supplies, so you should definitely check them out if your desk needs a pick-me-up before the school  year rolls around!

Shop Poppin Pen Set

Clear Vinyl Pouch

Speaking of pens, we have the perfect place for you to store them… in the Don’t Need You pouch! Instead of simply tossing your school supplies in your oversized bag with the rest of the “sh!t you don’t need”, store it in your pouch within your bag. The extra layer of protection will do wonders. Not to mention, it will make it much easier for you to find the smaller things amongst everything else! We’re still fawning over how insanely cute they are! As you know, translucent bags are very on trend, so this one will fit right in! The Don’t Need You pouch should definitely be used by the daring girl who’s not afraid to give everyone a glimpse!

Chic Reusable Water Bottle

We love this product because it will help you to better your body, the environment, and your style all at once! BKR created these reusable glass water bottles in all colors and sizes so there are tons of styles to chose from. Not to mention, the use of glass instead of plastic is extremely eco-friendly, so you can feel good about the product you’re using! You can simply throw this in your school bag and refill it throughout the day.

Multi-Use Portable Charger

You didn’t think we forgot about the Beauty Bank, did you? This product is an illuminating compact mirror that serves as a portable charger for your Apple or Android device. It’s the perfect summer accessory for the on the go girl who wants to stay fresh and powered throughout the day. While we keep our beauty banks in our bags all year long, we find it especially useful during the busy fall months when we’re constantly out and about. So, you’ll never have to worry about your phone dying when you need it most. As long as you keep your Beauty Bank in your bag, you’ll be all set!

bando, planner, agenda

Trendy Monthly Planner

Lastly, if you’re anything like us, you absolutely can’t live without your planner! It’s the perfect time of year to buy a new one, because most agendas are August-August. We found this Bando brand planner and we can’t get over how cute it is! Because let’s be honest… girl bosses are VERY busy. So, makes sure to get your hands on one of these ASAP. You don’t want to overbook yourself!
