Summer is officially coming to an end which means we’re swapping our iced teas for pumpkin spice lattes and our bikinis for leggings and flannels. When it comes to beauty, we’re also making a few swaps to ring in the new season.
Get ready for fall with us by checking out these essential summer-to-fall swaps that will spice up your look and your beauty routine.
1. Ditch your blotting papers and grab a hydrating facial mist
Blotting papers are our BFF during the sweltering hot summer days, but we might not need them as the air starts to get colder and drier. Instead, you’ll want to reach for a hydrating mist to stay fresh-faced all day! We love the Honest Beauty Elevated Hydration Mist!

2. Plum is the new pink
If you’ve been searching for a new go-to fall shade, look no further! The Plum Lip and Cheek provides a bold pop of color to the lips and cheeks while doubling as a fun eyeliner or eyeshadow.
Pro tip: Use this shade to create a bold look by following along with this tutorial.
3. Say goodbye to your tan and hello to bronzer
Chances are, we won’t be sunbathing for much longer which means we might start to lose that summer glow. Luckily that’s what bronzer and fake tanners are for!
4. Stock up on a lighter concealer shade
If you’ve spent a lot of time outside this summer you have probably developed a tan that, unfortunately, is going to start to fade. Be ready for the change by stocking up on a lighter shade of concealer.
Pro tip: Don’t ditch the darker shade! Instead, use it to create a cream contour. If you’re not sure how to contour check out our guide to cream contouring and highlighting!
5. Swap your mattifying primer for a dewy primer
Mattifying primers are great for keeping excess oils at bay during the summer, but in the colder months, you might be in need of a little extra shine, especially if you have dry skin. That’s why we recommend picking up a dewy primer to start off your makeup look.
Pro tip: We love using the Too Faced Dew You Fresh Glow Luminous Face Primer!
