Is there anyone out there that has a ton of time to update their fall makeup routine?
Anyone…? I barely have time to put out the damn pumpkins.
The truth is…MOST of us are incredibly busy juggling a thousand things, and our beauty routine has to be simple.
1) Ask a Pro For Help
I used to book these makeup sessions for clients ALL THE TIME. It’s such a treat… and again…it’s free!
They can recommend colors for your skin and eye color. They can also teach you about trends.
Just loop in the visit with a shopping trip to save time.
Plan to book appointments about a week in advance. You can do that online here.
2) Pick Out Some New Shades
Another simple way to update your beauty routine for fall… invest in a new eyeshadow palette.
My favorite fall colors are greens and burgundies.
You can see a tutorial for smokey green eyeshadow here.
You may have already noticed my newfound love of Charlotte Tilbury.
So… when I was looking for some standout fall shades, I searched her palettes.
I also have Mac’s “Burgundy Times Nine” palette, which has beautiful fall shades too.

How I Applied the Shadow
1) With this palette, I applied the lightest shade all over the lid to the brow bone.
2) Next, I added the medium shade to the crease, all the way to my nose.
3) I then lined my eyes (upper and lower – along the waterline on lower lid), using the darkest shade.
4) I winged out the shadow liner on the top, and blended it into the crease.
5) The last color, the gold shadow, I applied to the corners of my eyes… to open them up.
6) And, I finished off the eyes with some mascara.
3) Pick Out New Lipstick Colors
An even faster and easier way to update your beauty routine for fall…? Pick up some new lipstick!
I know not every one likes or looks good in deeper shades, but if you can do it… why not?
It’s so glamorous and sexy.. And, again so simple!
The shade I used (above) is called, “Love Liberty.” I also bought “Red Carpet Red,” which is gorgeous!
When I use darker colors on my lips, I prefer matte shades. This lipstick is matte, but also hydrating.

Matching Your Eyes to Your Lips
In the look above, I matched my eyes with my lips. Just like in fashion, a monochromatic beauty look is trendy too.
But, you certainly don’t have to. You can easily do a nude lip with burgundy eyes, or deeper lips with more neutral eyes.
What are Your Beauty Favorites?
I hope this gives you some quick, beauty update ideas for this season.
