Fall & Winter Beauty Secrets: A Natural Makeup Artist's Guide

As the leaves change color and the air becomes crisper, it's time to update your beauty routine to suit the fall and winter seasons. The cooler weather and drier air call for a different approach to both makeup and skincare. To help you stay on top of the latest trends, I’ve compiled a list of fall and winter makeup and skincare trends for 2023. Skin Care Trends

Hydration is Key

The colder months can be harsh on your skin, leading to dryness and flakiness. To combat this, focus on hydration. Look for moisturizers rich in hyaluronic acid and ceramides to lock in moisture like my personal favorite duo (Dry Defense Duo) from Sonia Roselli. Additionally, consider adding a hydrating serum to foundation to add in an extra boost.

Sustainable and Clean Beauty

  • Sustainability is a growing concern in the beauty industry. Look for skincare products that are cruelty-free, eco-friendly, and free from harmful chemicals. Many brands now offer clean, green alternatives that are just as effective as their traditional counterparts.

Customizable Skincare

  • Personalized skin care is always in. We can help you create a skincare routine tailored to your unique needs, ensuring you get the best results with our one-on-one lessons.

Focus on Total Health

  • We all know how stress can take a toll on a number of things within our body. Our skin is no different. This season, vow to evaluate ways you can relieve stress, drink more water, get a better night’s sleep and live a more balanced lifestyle.

Makeup Trends

Minimalist Skin

  • A healthy complexion is a timeless trend. Achieve this look with a focus on skin prep and luminous foundations. A subtle, all-over glow is perfect for the colder months.

Berry and Plum Lips

  • Dark, rich lip colors are making a comeback. Berry and plum shades are perfect for fall and winter. You can choose from matte, satin, or glossy finishes, depending on your preference.

Cool Tones and Metallic Accents

  • Bring back the 90s. Cool tones and metallic eyeshadows are a fantastic choice for the holiday season. Swap out your neutral and warm tones for silver and metallic colors, which can add a touch of luxury to your makeup looks.

This fall and winter, take the opportunity to revamp your beauty routine and embrace the latest skincare and makeup trends. Don't forget to have fun and experiment with new looks, as makeup and skincare are all about self-expression and ever-changing. Enjoy the beauty of the season and make it your own!
