The change in season is upon us, so it’s time to pack away those summer beauty supplies and bring out the heavy hitters. Autumn is a tricky season to predict, one moment you have clear skies, the next you’re battling blustery gales and sudden downpours, so it’s essential to be prepared for whatever the weather throws at you.
Here are your must-have products for weather-proof hair and makeup this season.
It’s All About That Base...
When it comes to makeup, having a good base to build on couldn’t be more important. Well-primed skin not only allows for smooth application of your makeup products but also helps your cosmetics stay in place for longer. Try one of these best-sellers:
Even tone, blur pores and smooth your complexion with bareMinerals PRIME TIME Original Foundation Primer. The lightweight, matte finish is perfect for layering under your foundation or can even be worn on its own for a casual “no makeup” look.
Are you looking for a primer with the added power of a serum? Elizabeth Arden Good Morning Retexturising Primer is rich in botanicals and antioxidants, including grapeseed oil, avocado and birch bark extracts. Retinyl linoleate improves skin texture and tone, making this primer ideal for mature and problem skin.
Enlarged pores spoiling the finish of your makeup? Try Flormar Pore Minimizer Makeup Primer. This oil-absorbing primer has a velvety finish which effectively reduces the appearance of pores, helping your foundation to glide over the skin’s surface for a smoother finish.
Fix Your Face In Place...
Not all makeup is created equal. That lightweight foundation may be perfect for fair weather but will pool at your jawline at the first sign of stormy skies. Choosing the right products for the season is key to season-proofing your makeup look. The beauties below will keep you looking fabulous come rain or shine.
With its fine and silky texture, this powder goes on flawlessly to offer naturally sheer protection. The formulation is available in a range of tones and is resistant to sweat, humidity and moisture. So, whether you’re running for the bus or get caught without a brolly, you’ll have the confidence of added staying-power.
Dewy, hydrated skin without the shine? Yes, please. With ingredients including caffeine infusion and TEAOXI® complex, Glamglow Glowsetter Makeup Setting Spray gives skin a boost of nourishment and moisture while keeping your makeup in place.
Beachy waves are so last season. Channel the autumn vibes with windswept hair on your terms. No one wants to look like they got caught in a tornado, but with a little help, you can create voluminous waves and texture that stays in place throughout the day.
With a flexible finish and mild hold, Redken Wind Blown 05 is the perfect hairspray for creating light texture and weightless volume. Ideal for locking your windswept hair into place, this is a must-have for your adding a little extra “autumn” into your style.
