How To Update Your Makeup For Fall

how to update your makeup for fall
How to update your makeup for fall. This week, the summer heat finally let up and there is a noticeable change in the air. Nights have become cooler and the “I can’t breathe it’s so hot” summer air is finally starting to ease up. I do love summer, I really do, but I also love the fall (maybe even more). Fall brings back memories of crunching through the deep reds and golds of fallen leaves. The warmth of crackling fireplaces and the cool blues, when we went canoeing on Ontario lakes. Now, now don’t panic, there’s still lots of summer left and at least a few more heat wave days, but it is time to slowly start thinking about updating your makeup to fit fall’s colours and textures.

Face. While summer is all about carefree, dewy, barely there makeup, in the fall I like to opt for a more matte finish. The cooler weather seems to call for a more elegant look.  For obvious reasons, my skin is paler in the fall, so I tend to reach for a light rosey blush that is reminiscent of the flush we get on a cool day. Another option is to slightly change where you apply your bronzer. Instead of showing off sun kissed cheeks, give yourself some light contouring by applying the bronzer just beneath them.

Eyes. Since there is absolutely no danger of your eye shadow melting off, this is a great time of year to experiment with bolder colours and more dramatic styles. Warm burgundys, cool greens and navies and crisp golds are so perfect for creating smouldering smokey eyes. While I rarely wear a lot of liner in the summer, I love to pull out a black liner in the fall. Or, for a different look, I might use a deep grey or navy.

Lips. I can never have enough lipsticks and with all the deep berry tones, rich reds and luxurious plums, you can’t really blame me. Since chapped and peeling lips are only highlighted by dark colours, I start using a gentle exfoliator once a week and a deep moisturizing treatment every night.

Nails. While soft pinks and sandy shades are stunning for summer, fall means dark vampy colours and seductive greys. When using dark polishes I make sure to keep my nails short and slightly rounded, otherwise they tend to look a little bit intimidating. With the change in weather comes drier skin and rough cuticles. To help get me through this transition period, I like to do a once a week hand treatment. It’s hard to forget the skin on our face, but often it’s your hands that will reveal your age.

Perfumes. While I often mix up my perfumes, no matter the season, fall is when I start to crave spicier, more exotic notes. When looking for your ideal fall perfume think about your lifestyle. Are you spending a lot of time in an office where it might not be appropriate to wear heavy scents? Do you work in a fragrance free environment? You can still choose a light scent, but some of fall’s more intense notes might not be a great choice. For those times when you can indulge, look for notes of dark spirits, amber and leather as they will be the perfect compliment to fall’s rich colours.

I always look forward to updating my makeup and beauty products each season. In the spring, I long for lightweight textures and pale shades of greys and pinks, but after several months I welcome the deeper tones and thicker textures that come with fall.

What are some of your tips for updating your fall makeup?

Fall Makeup Guide


  1. Oh, I am SO ready to do away with the warm weather and jump into fall. I can’t wait to break out my darker lipsticks.

    That Chanel nail polish is to die for, by the way!


    1. I am so with you! That Chanel polish is my fave shade for fall!

  2. That Essie nail colour is gorgeous!

    Candice Beauty Candy Loves

    1. Oooh, ha! I had my sister send it to me from abroad ’cause I loved it.

  3. I always feel like the moment Summer arrives I start to get excited for Fall. Fall fashion, Fall weather and of course, Fall makeup is so much more exciting. Funny you posted a picture of that Chanel polish- I nearly picked it up the other day I was so smitten. The only thing that stopped me is the fact that I rarely wear blue. Perhaps that would be my excuse?

    1. I never thought that I’d wear blue but it actually works really well and I wear it on my toes all the time.

  4. Interesting products, great suggestions!!!
    Kisses, Paola.


    My Facebook

    1. Thank you!

  5. Love the blue nail polishes!! That Chanel one is so so nice. xx Gemma xx

    1. I always love blue this time of year!

  6. Even if I do enjoy the summer weather, I can’t wait for it to get a bit cooler, so I can use all of my favorite eye shadow again. During the heat wave it was simply impossible to wear any of it, so I only played around with eye liner & mascara. Bold eye makeup – here I come! 😉 What’s your most favorite navy fall eye look Caro? (That reminds me – I need to stock on some navy eyeshadow…) And nail polish…don’t let me even go there.

    1. I love to use a navy liner and combine it with my favourite silvery shadow.

  7. Love this! Such a useful post. I’m always so bad at updating my makeup when seasons change, but going to use this post as reference this time 🙂

    1. Oh it’s so nice to hear that. Thank you!
