This post and photo cred go to our friends at Nine Naturals. We love them for their good-for-you, natural products and for helping expecting moms feel their absolute best.
As you bid adieu to summer and welcome the arrival of fall–trading in sandals for slingbacks and bikinis for blazers–be sure to also swap out your featherweight summer skincare and cosmetics for rich products better suited for this transitional season.
The crisp autumn air will feel inviting after enduring the summer heat with your own internal furnace cranked to high, so venture outdoors and partake in some of many fall activities, including visiting a harvest festival, picking apples at a nearby orchard, and taking in a football game with your partner. Protect your delicate skin from whipping winds by carrying a moisturizing body balm, such as Nine Naturals Repairing Body Balm, which uses organic shea, cupuaçu and mango butters. To ensure that your pucker stays flake-free, toss the long-lasting Nine Naturals Simply Natural Lip Balm in your bag as well.
Look the part on your fall adventures by borrowing beauty inspiration from the fall fashion runways, where the following trends ruled:
- Ruby lips: No matter the hue—from cherry to burgundy—red lips are all the rage this fall. Choose from one of four red shades from Ilia Cosmetics, who offers certified-organic moisturizing lip products filled with bioactive botanicals.
- Black rimmed eyes: Line your eyes from top to bottom, and tear duct to outer corner with a matte black eyeliner.Tarte Cosmetics skinny smolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Onyx will show off your peepers without smudging. Then emphasize your lashes with Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Mascara in Black Magic! Both are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, or gluten.
- Metallic shadows: Add a little shimmer and shine to your beauty routine by painting a wash of Vapour Organic Beauty Mesmerize Eye Shimmer in Firefly, which is formulated with a minimum of 70% organic ingredients, all over your lids.
- Flushed cheeks: A flawlessly flushed complexion can easily be achieved by dotting RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek (the Demure shade is perfection)—free of harmful chemicals, synthetic preservatives, synthetic vitamins, and genetically altered ingredients—on the apples of your cheeks.
- Updos: Skip the primping required to achieve the perfect beach waves and opt for a chic chignon or French twist, after cleansing with Nine Naturals Citrus + Mint Nourishing Pregnancy Shampoo and then undoing any summer hair damage with Nine Naturals Citrus + Mint Nourishing Pregnancy Conditioner. Updos are an easy and classy way to dress up your look.
