Now that it’s October, any semblance of a summer tan has faded. I recently cleaned out my makeup bag to update my collection according to season and found some new beauty essentials during a trip to Sephora. I’ve officially retired my coral nail polishes, replacing them with darker hues. Essie’s ‘after school boy blazer’ is my current color of choice—I picked up a bottle after choosing the polish in the salon and deeming it the perfect navy. For a change from gold shimmery shadows, I bought the Naked 2 palette (be sure to prep it with primer) along with gel liner to create smoky eyes. I like to use BB cream as a moisturizer and concealer, then light foundation to even out my skin tone. A dusting of bronzer and highlighter is added to my cheeks for a healthy glow. Plum lipstick (I also love this gloss in crushed cherry) completes the fall-forward look.
