The Ultimate 2021 Guide To Fall
Summer is sadly coming to an end, but fortunately, we have the cozy fall season to look forward to! We can’t wait to bring in the new season with fun autumn adventures, cuddly sweaters, and fall-ready beauty looks and trends. The transition to a new season can be hard, but we’ve got you covered for a great new season with everything from our top beauty picks to falltastic activities!
Are you looking to get out of the house and enjoy the crisp, fall air? Then take a trip to your nearest pumpkin patch! Pick some pumpkins to take home to carve or go for a hayride - the possibilities are endless at the pumpkin patch! After picking your pumpkin, head home and set up a pumpkin carving contest. Set a timer, grab some stencils, and watch everyone’s creativity unfold!
What is fall without watching iconic movies centered around autumn? Gather your friends and family and turn on the TV for a movie marathon! With Halloween right around the corner, you can spice up movie night by turning it into a Halloween movie scarefest. Are you brave enough to watch some of these movies until the end? Turn it into a friendly-family competition and see who can stay up without getting spooked!
Another great activity to do with family and friends is to make s’mores. They’re super easy to make and require only three ingredients — chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers. Set up a bonfire outside or bring the cozyness indoors and roast them over a spread of candles! You can also switch it up and create fun s’mores that are one-of-a-kind to get everyone’s creative juices flowing.
Perfume is a great accessory that you can apply year round. However, similar to seasonal fashion trends, there are some specific fragrance notes that are perfect for the fall.
The Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum is a recurring beauty award winner for best fragrance and it’s the perfect perfume for fall! This luminous and sophisticated fragrance is dense and intense with notes of jasmine, saffron, cedarwood, and ambergris.
Spice up your bathroom and rinse away germs with the Nest New York Pumpkin Chai Liquid Soap. This hand soap contains a blend of wild pumpkin, spicy masala chai, cardamom, ginger, and cinnamon - the perfect concoction for autumn.
As the weather becomes colder, it is important to keep your skin moisturized and hydrated. The Molton Brown Orange & Bergamot Nourishing Body Lotion is a deliciously scented lotion with notes of orange, bergamot, and cedarwood. This citrusy scent makes a perfect addition to your everyday beauty routine before leaving the house.
Candles are a must-have during the fall! The Nest Autumn Plum Candle elegantly captures the woody aroma of freshly fallen leaves with notes of wild plum, cinnamon, patchouli leaf, and cashmere wood.
Beauty We Can’t Be-Leaf
Fall is all about looking chic and elegant with a pop of rich color on the lips. To start, apply the Tom Ford Illuminating Primer which visibly brightens the skin and creates a flawless canvas for applying makeup.
Next apply the Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Fluid Foundation SPF 24, which won our 2021 Beauty Award for best foundation/base! It’s dewy, serum-like texture melts into the skin and leaves a radiant, natural finish.
To naturally enhance the eyes, apply the RevitaLash Double-Ended Volume Set mascara for gorgeous,voluptuous lashes. We hear that lilac is one of the color trends for fall this year, so if you’re feeling playful with your look, try a purple eyeshadow! We love the Chantecaille Luminescent Eye Shade in Crane for a sophisticated statement look.
For the lips, apply the Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Brownie to add a pop of color to your look. This swipe-and-go lipstick glides on comfortably and leaves the lips hydrated with a satin matte finish.
Add a finishing touch by applying the Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray to your hair. This light spray provides heat protection and creates lasting lift with a medium hold. If volume is what you’re looking for, then this spray is a great pick for you!
After a long day out and about, use the Bioeffect Micellar Cleansing Water to remove makeup and impurities. This cleansing water tones and moisturizes while leaving your skin clean and refreshed!
As the temperatures drop, it’s important to incorporate hydrating and nourishing products to combat dry, dull skin!
The Augustinus Bader The Face Oil deeply nourishes and smoothes the skin. This restorative facial oil is clinically proven to reduce fine lines and uneven pigmentation. It also works hard to strengthen the skin barrier, giving the skin a supple feel.
For a daily cleanser that leaves your skin radiant and hydrated, try the Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser. This amazing cleanser also doubles as an exfoliator! Just leave it on for an extra five minutes before rinsing it off.
For an extra boost in glow, try the 111Skin Y Theorem Repair Serum NAC Y2. This magical serum reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and creates a rejuvenated complexion. This is the perfect product to use after being exposed to extreme weather conditions. With this serum, only a small amount is required to fully nourish the skin!
If you struggle with stressed or sensitive skin, then the Tata Harper Superkind Fortifying Moisturizer is a great addition to your skincare routine. This ultra-silky, soothing formula hydrates, fortifies, comforts, and defends reactive skin.
Cheers to the endless possibilities that a new season holds! Wishing everyone a very happy fall filled with fun autumn-inspired activities, fashion, and beauty.
