Fall is well underway and we’ve lost our summer tans, but we can still recreate a bronzed and vibrant look with a few key products. This season is all about mimicking the natural colors of fall with orange and earthy tones—complemented by bolder colors on our nails. Read on to discover how to transition that healthy summer glow into a fall-forward natural beauty. (And rest assured that as always, all products in our boxes—as well as the ones we recommend—are totally cruelty-free and vegan.)
- Autumnal, Kissable Lips
Not quite nude, this season’s most flattering lip color includes a hint of autumnal orange with a bit of shimmer. Look for shades that match your natural skin tone with just a bit of warming orange tones to make your pout pucker. Lip Love Gloss in Sahara and Coffee are spot-on (and they double as a cheek stain and creamy eyeshadow, too!).
(Psssst ... Love the look of this product? You might love next month's box! Wink wink!)
- Defined Natural Features
If you’ve never experimented with a bronzer before, now is the season to try it. A quality, cruelty-free bronzer can give you an overall healthy glow as well as enhance your best features. Swipe all over your face to renew your long-gone summer tan, or apply under your cheekbones, jawline, and sides of your forehead to slim your face. Try Inika Organic’s Loose Mineral Bronzer to get started.
- Peachy Cheeks
Pair your nearly nude fall lips with peachy cheeks. The subtle orange in peach naturally compliments the look while giving you a vibrant, youthful glow. Fight off seasonal dry skin with a moisturizing product such as Clove + Hallow’s Hydratint Blush Serum in Velvet. The potent cream delivers a buildable color you can easily apply with a few pats of your fingertip so you can create your perfect shade.
- Fierce Nails
Make a bold statement with dark mahogany nails. Look for red-based shades with earthy, brown and orange undertones You’ll exude confidence with every handshake. For inspiration, check out NCLA Beauty’s nail lacquer in PSL Season—truly a fitting shade for the season.
- Light-As-Air Lashes
Leave the bold, multi-coat lashes for another day; this fall is focused on defined yet natural-looking lids. Lightly coated lashes will flatter the subtle fall notes of your look so you can flutter your lids with flirtatious abandon. Look for vegan, cruelty-free formulas that promise to lengthen (and not clump). 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Ultra Lengthening Mascara does the trick every time!
