Autumn is the perfect time to refresh your skincare routine and experiment with new makeup looks. From hydrating serums to warm-toned eyeshadows, this article will give you 10 autumn beauty tips so you can glow in the golden hues!
10 Autumn beauty tips
- Switch to a more nourishing moisturiser
Autumn brings cooler temperatures and lower humidity levels, which can dehydrate your skin. To combat these effects, swap out lightweight moisturisers for richer, more nourishing products that provide intense hydration.
- Treat your skin to a mask
In addition to a daily moisturiser, a nourishing mask once or twice a week can provide an extra hydration boost.
Our customers say our Purify + Nourish Mask is ‘pure magic!’. The Bulgarian Rose Stem Cells promote a healthy skin barrier, which makes for a smoother and clearer complexion. Apply it whilst you watch your favourite autumn film (here’re some we love!) for the perfect cosy pamper day.
- Use an oil-based cleanser
During cooler months, you don’t want to get rid of all of your skin’s natural oils, as it can lead to sensitivity.
An oil-based cleanser is a good option, as they remove a build-up of dirt and excess oil, without stripping the skin of moisture. For example, our Gentle Cleansing Oil is formulated with 11 lightweight nourishing oils that leave your skin soft and dewy.
- Don’t forget SPF
Just because the sun has left, it doesn’t mean it’s time to put the SPF away. Dermatologists recommend applying SPF to the skin every day, all year round, to prevent premature aging, reduce the risk of skin cancer, and maintain your skin’s protective barrier.
- Invest in a trusty lip balm
When the weather cools down, you may experience chapped lips. It’s better to take care of them sooner rather than later, to avoid painful cracking.
A high-quality lip balm should be one of your first autumn beauty buys. Choose one with nourishing natural ingredients like shea butter, as well as SPF protection, and keep it in your pocket or purse for on-the-go use.
- Embrace earthy-toned eyeshadows
You may have gone for light and minimal makeup in the summer, so now’s your chance to get creative!
When it comes to autumn makeup, warm and earthy tones are the way to go. Embrace the changing landscape by incorporating burnt oranges, deep browns, and berry shades. For your eyes, copper, bronze, or rust tones complement the season and create a warm and sultry look.
- Switch your bronzer for blush
Where summer was all about being a golden goddess, autumn calls for a pop of colour.
Swap out your summer bronzer for a warm, terracotta blush that mimics the flush of cool autumn air. A cream blush gives a radiant appearance, just dab it on the apples of your cheeks and blend it out towards your temples for a natural glow.
- Be bold and wear a coloured lipstick
Have you ever met a self-conscious person with a statement lip colour? No, we haven’t either! If the post-summer blues are getting to you, a bold lip can up your energy and confidence.
Choose a lipstick in a berry shade, like a rich plum or a deep red, to add a touch of drama to your makeup. It might be outside your comfort zone but, hey, all the best things are! Who knows, a bold lip might be the start of a bold new you…
- Treat your nails like jewels (not tools)
If your summer manicure is chipping away bit by bit, it’s time to get into the autumn spirit by embracing nature’s colours on your fingertips.
Rich jewel tones like burgundy, deep purple, and emerald, green are popular choices for the season. They add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your overall look; a reminder to treat your nails like jewels, not tools!
- Eat seasonally
Beauty starts from the inside, and what you put into your body is more important than what you put on it. Start your autumn beauty routine by enjoying the season’s produce.
Nature’s kitchen is thriving in Autumn, so enjoy its nourishing delights like butternut squash and pumpkin. These veggies contain beta-carotene, which is beneficial for your skin, adding to your autumnal glow.
