Fall Makeup Essentials: Products to Transition from Summer to Fall + Swatches

By Trecee Hutchinson - 7:50:00 PM

Summer is officially over and although I'm kind of sad that the weather is much cooler, I'm looking forward to breaking out my favorite sweaters and eating comfort food. 

Just because the seasons are changing, doesn't mean you need switch out all of your favorite products just yet. Keep reading, for some of my favorite products that will be transitioning to Fall right along with the weather.

Juvia's Place the Saharan II Eye shadow Palette | $20

I've been telling everyone about this palette because it is just that good! The pigmentation on all 9 of the shades are next level.  The three warm mattes in this palette make this the perfect everyday fall palette for me. My favorite shades are Marrakesh , a iridescent peach shimmer and Zohra, a matte medium cranberry. Recently, I did a post that Juvia's Place is now available at Ulta, making them even more accessible to a wider audience.  Trust me, you will not be disappointed in this palette. Pick it up here.

Pur Cosmetics Face Creator Palette | $42

Ya girl was really sleeping on the Pur Cosmetics eye shadow formula! It is really damn near luxurious. The Pur Face Creator palette was inspired makeup artists and features 12 eye shadows and 2 face products, a highlighter and a shimmery bronzer. These shadows are super soft and blend effortlessly. I also love the highlighter in this palette, although its too light for my complexion, the formula is super smooth and reflective. Everything you want in a highlighter. The only product I was not feeling in terms of color was the bronzer. It's like a gray brown and I genuinely can't see how the shade would work on a variety of skin tones. Despite that, this palette is a win and totally worth the price tag. Pick it up at Ulta here.

Sephora #Lipstories | $8

A few months ago, I did a post professing my love for the $8 Sephora Lipstories lipsticks. I particularly fell in love with 2 shades Brunch Date (matte) and Malt Shake (cream) and will be rocking these all Fall and definitely into the Winter. These lipsticks are so comfortable and moisturizing on the lips regardless of the finish. They also don't bleed all of the place, which is a must have for me in a lip formula. Now, the lasting power isn't super long, but personally I prefer comfort over long lasting lipsticks so I'm not really tripping about that. At this price point, you can definitely pick up one or two of these without breaking the bank. You can get them at Sephora here.

Coloured Raine Satin Lipsticks | $18

Do not sleep on Coloured Raine y'all! If you haven't heard of this brand, its a Black owned makeup brand based out of California. They offer quality products and the Satin Lipsticks are no exception. If you are looking for a bold color lipstick that won't dry out your lips, look no further than these. These are easily my favorite formula of cream lipsticks. The opacity on these is unreal, I can truly get full color with one swipe, making these a winner in my book. These are a little bit pricey, but Coloured Raine always has a sale going on and affiliate codes to use when you purchase. You can find these on the Coloured Raine Website here.

Mac Cosmetics Film Noir Blush | $24

This blush is my year round contour shade, but truthfully its the perfect color for fall. It's nice and deep, but can be built up to be even darker. I love a deep contour and this fits the bill. It's also super blendable and smooth. My friend purchased this for me at least three years ago and I wear it all the time and still haven't really hit pan on which makes this an amazing value.

Laura Mercier Translucent Powder Glow in Medium Deep | $38

I actually received this powder randomly from Influenster (sign up here for free beauty products). It's not something I would have naturally gravitated to in the store, but I am so glad I have this powder. This powder is just like the normal Laura Mercier translucent powder, but it has a slight shimmer to it that adds a subtle glow to the skin. You can use it all over as a setting powder or build it up on the high points of your face as a face high light. The price on this is kind of steep, but so worth every penny.

Tarte Lifted Sweatproof Mascara | $23

This mascara is the absolute best for everyday. I had tried it out a while ago through my Ipsy glam bag subscription and loved it. This stuff is good and is perfect if you're like me and always on the go. It definitely stays in place all day and adds the perfect amount of length and volume. Now this mascara is not black, it's more of like a dark brown but I wear this stuff any time I'm not pairing false lashes with my look. These days, that's all the time because I can't be bothered putting on falsies everyday

Nyx Lip Lacquer | $7

Nyx Lip products are by far my go to products from the brand, but I recently fell in love with the Slip Tease Lip Lacquer. These lip colors are an ultra long wearing liquid lipstick that doesn't dry down. I have literally been wearing these almost every day lately because they are so low maintenance and on me usually lasts through my meals when paired with lip liner.

Too Faced Melted Latex | $21

I have really been loving Gloss all year and the Too Faced Melted Latex liquid lipstick has been amazing for me all summer. It's formula is super thick, but the color payoff and staying time is awesome. These also stay in place when paired with a liner to prevent feathering. I got mine on sale because I am pretty sure these are being discontinued, but if you can find these or run across them in store, try out a shade. 

Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer | $10

This concealer found its way into my makeup collection probably soley because of all the hype surrounding this launch and the fact that its similar to my favorite concealer Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. Although, I don't agree that the formula is exactly the same as Shape Tape, this is a really good drug store alternative to the Tarte Concealer. It offers really good coverage and isn't super creasy, although in my opinion, it dries down wayyyy to fast. For $10, with its extensive shade range (24 shades), this has been my new everyday concealer. I use shade C11 as a highlighting concealer and it stays in place through my work day.

Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation | $12

If you love full coverage foundation at a decent price, I think you will love this foundation. I picked this up in the color Mocha in the summer and this is definitely going to be transitioning into fall with me. It's soooo full coverage and long wearing. If you don't like heavy foundation, try going in with a half a pump, that's all I use and it's more than enough foundation for me.
