Fall often brings with it a yen for a new beauty routine. The changing hues of fall, with all of its bronzey browns and rusty reds, does give you a bit more leeway to play with all of the deepest and richest lipsticks, eyeshadows, and polishes that are launching this season.
Now’s the time to swap out summer’s fuchsia and coral lipsticks for more fall-appropriate burgundies and aubergines. But instead of the last year’s opaque oxblood trend, this season, moody lipsticks are appearing in sheer color washes and translucent stains. There’s Rouge Dior’s new Couture Colour, which renders the lip a plush matte for 16 hours in one of the house’s iconic reds, or a rather unorthodox navy.

Stash away your current smoky bronze and charcoal shadows for autumn’s newest sultry eye hue: metallic crimson. Tom Ford’s metallic cream shadows provide an equally pretty pop of petal pink or burnished copper on the lid. Seen on the runways of Cynthia Rowley, Anthony Vaccarello, Ruffian, Altuzarra and Gucci, a smoldering gaze becomes instantly updated in shades of cranberry, garnet, and russet.
Summer’s golden glow is giving way to shine-free skin for the upcoming season. This year matte faces get updated with more translucent formulas that still allow the complexion to peek through. For a pitch-perfect canvas, Lancôme’s spin on the cushion compact is a long-wearing, high-coverage foundation option.
The coming season’s cooler temperatures require a heartier skin routine to keep your face adequately moisturized. That means trading in your gel and foam cleansers for a creamier formula. La Prairie’s latest essence-in-lotion comes infused with caviar water that, when swept across the face just after cleansing, conditions and refines pores on contact. Then there’s the Magnetight Age-Defier, a next-level mask courtesy of Dr. Brandt, whose iron-based formula comes with an actual magnet that is wrapped in cloth and run over the skin to remove the muddy particles. For something a bit more down to earth, Shiseido’s lifting eye cream and Kiehl’s targeted acne spot pen are two utterly foolproof treatments that fit in your pocket.
Also, get ready to switch up your Eau de Apricot in favor of fall’s spicier scents. What makes these fragrances new this year is that they are tempered with florals galore for a more wearable assortment. Kenzo’s new fragrance is another objet for your vanity, thanks to its pale blue evil-eye bottle with gold logo-charm pupil.

Transitioning into fall means tucking away all the maga-bright lipsticks and lightweight creams and opting for products that are altogether richer and more sumptuous.
