The fall season is here. Cooler temperatures instantly make us think of layering our favorite T’s with our coziest sweaters, simultaneously swap out our open toe’s strappy sandals for the new season’s ‘it’ boot. As we begin to transition our seasonal clothing wardrobe, the same ritual doesn’t necessarily have to be said about our makeup ‘wardrobe’. Our summer must-haves such as bronzer, lip-gloss, and foundation can all easily transition into fall product staples with just a few easy, multi-tasking tweaks.
The powder bronzer that you swept over the high points of your complexion can still be utilized in the fall as a tawny, softly sun-kissed cheek color and works beautifully in lieu of a brighter shade of blush, which most likely was a summer staple in your makeup stash. Using a fluffy, powder brush, simply sweep a light coat of bronzing powder in circular motions, moving towards your temples. This also creates an uplifted contour effect that slightly narrows the face shape.
Additionally, the bronzing powder can multi-task as an eyeshadow to warm up the eyelids as a transition color, sweeping bronzer along the center crease of the eyes adds a soft, depth. Our Bronzing Powder in the shade Portofino casts a natural looking, sun-lit glow that’s ideal for fair to tan skin. With a hint of radiance, it creates instant healthy looking warmth on your complexion, year round.
A sheer, shimmering lip gloss is no doubt, a goof-proof summer essential as it can be applied at any time for a translucent wash of color over bare lips for an undone, natural-looking effect. While a sheer gloss works well all year round, it can multitask effortlessly as a liquid highlighter for a healthy looking sheen, particularly if you prefer a dewy looking high light over the complexion. Our Lip Gloss in the shade, Bling (golden pearl effect) is the ultimate multi-tasker. It can be dabbed over the high parts of the cheeks, onto the center part of the eyelids or brow bone, either over bare skin or on top of eyeshadow for a glazed, fashion/editorial effect commonly spotted as part of the hottest trends for this fall and winter. As a final step, apply dab onto a reusable mascara wand spoolie and brush unruly brows for a soft sheen and instant brow shaping.
During the hot and humid summer season, keeping excess shine away becomes a priority, particularly for those with naturally oily skin. As the season changes and the air significantly cools, a matte or ‘velvet’ finish foundation can often feel too dry and sometimes a bit tight on the skin. When this occurs, there’s no need to switch your existing formulation unless you fall into the ‘very dry’ skin category. To solve this problem simply mix 2-3 drops of your favorite facial oil into one pump of your foundation and apply onto skin using a synthetic brush for satin, comfortable finish. For a lit-from-within effect, add a few drops of your favorite liquid highlighter into your foundation for a radiant effect. The versatility of NU EVOLUTION’s Complete Coverage Foundation allows you to easily control your coverage from medium to full while having an ultra-adaptable base, meaning you can mix any liquid product such as a liquid highlighter, facial oil, serum, cream moisturizer for an extra boost of moisture when needed
