The Ultimate 2020 Guide to Fall
Fall is right around the corner! We can’t believe summer is coming to an end but we’re excited to welcome the new season and everything that comes with it. We may be spending more time indoors than usual this fall, but we still have you covered with some fun autumn activities, as well as our top picks for fashion, and beauty!
Bring the movie theater to the comfort of your own home! There are so many amazing fall movies out there so why not stream it on a projector to make it feel extra special? Take it to the next level by projecting the movie outside on the side of your house! Grab some popcorn, blankets, and hot cider to perfect the movie night.
Another great fall activity is to pack your car with a few favorite snacks, prepare a playlist, and head off on a scenic day trip to watch the wonders of the changing leaves. Don’t forget to apply SPF before you head off as the skin is extremely susceptible to sun damage while driving! We love the Dr. Barbara Sturm Sun Drops for the face and RéVive Soleil Supérieur Body Broad Spectrum Spf 50 for the body. Both are lightweight sunscreens that are extremely effective at defending the skin from harmful rays. Make sure to also rub some sunscreen into your hands as they are very exposed on the steering wheel, and of course reapply every 2 hours especially when outdoors.
Fall is also a great time to get crafty! Making your own candles is not only a fun activity but a nice way to add coziness to your home. A few simple ingredients and voila, your place is instantly homier. Not really the crafting type? That’s okay! The Nest Fragrances Pumpkin Chai Classic Candle is also a great way to bring an autumn ambiance to your home. If you’re not really the crafting type or a pumpkin scent fan (we’re not judging!), we also have you covered. The iconic Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Candle brings the magic of the outdoors with notes of amber, light floral, and woody breeze.
Fashion but Make it Comfy
Since we’ll be spending more time indoors, we’re obsessed with monochromatic matching sweatsuits. They are so stylish, chic, and most importantly, comfortable. Elevate the look by layering your favorite jewelry and adding a Slip Pure Silk Midi Hair Tie to the wrist. These hair ties not only hold your hair wonderfully without hair creases but also work as a fashionable accessory.
Since wearing a face covering is now part of our daily routine, our go-to has been the gorgeous Slip Reusable Face Covering. It’s not only ultra-chic but incredibly comfortable to wear with its soft cotton inner lining and 100% silk exterior. These fashionable face coverings will go great with any chunky knit sweater or scarf!
Unbe-leaf-ably Stunning Beauty
To match our elevated sweatsuit, we’re keeping our make-up minimal this season. We’ve been loving flushed cheeks, sheer lids, hydrated lips, and perfectly tousled hair.
For the base, the Tata Harper Water-Lock Moisturizer deeply nourishes the skin and creates a priming effect for makeup ready skin. Skip the foundation for a lighter base and use a tinted moisturizer or spot treat with concealer. Our all-time favorite is the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector and the Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer. Both of these give you that flawless yet natural look.
For the flushed cheeks, use the Tom Ford Cheek Color which also won our 2020 Beauty Award for the best blush! It has a powdery yet gel-like texture that blends seamlessly into the complexion. Now sweep the Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick onto your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, inner corners of eyes, and right above the cupid’s bow for a luminous glow. Coat your lashes with the volumizing Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara to awaken your eyes. For the final touches to the lids, dab a bit of the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst, which is a stunning sheer shade of plum.
Now apply the AmorePacific Dual Nourishing Lip Serum over the entire lip area to leave them smooth and ready for color. Swipe the Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Color in Desert Rose onto your lips for a light mauve perfection.
For the hair, the R+Co Trophy Shine + Texture Spray is amazing for adding volume and a playful look to the hair. Spray on towel-dried or dry hair and style. Add the Oribe Gold Lust All Over Oil onto the ends of the hair and décolleté area for a beautiful nourished radiance and your everyday fall look is complete!
Cheers to a new season! Wishing everyone a very happy fall filled with fun autumn-inspired activities, fashion, and beauty. As always, stay safe, be well, and always add a little beauty into your day.
