Fall Beauty & Skincare Guide

  • by Sarah Ferguson

    As far as hair and makeup are concerned, I'll try anything at least once. Orange lipstick, hair chalk, crazy nail art kits-as long as I can take it off at the end of the day, I'm game!

    More permanent changes, on the other hand, really freak me out. Prime example: I've had the same haircut and color for about 15 years and it's going to stay that way.

    So when I want to totally refresh my look, I opt for instant, subtle modifications to my daily beauty routine. I'll define my brows or choose a bold lip color I've never tried before. Simple, yes, but you'd be surprised how little it takes to bring you out of your comfort zone. Click through above for five ways to transform your look this season if you're a commitment-phobe like me.

  • Pucker up: This season is all about bright and colorful lips. But not just any bright lip-the "popsicle" lip is a new rendition that creates a fun look with a brighter, bolder middle that fades as it reaches the outer edges. Think of it as ombre for the lips. This creates a look that's super full and luscious, making your look more feminine and youthful-lips thin as you age, so this look keeps them looking voluminous. The go-to shade of the season is grape. Deep purples, wines and fuchsias all create a contrast with teeth, making them appear whiter, which we perceive as healthy and clean. Rocking both these looks will keep you on-trend while also letting you radiate health and youthfulness, which are always in style no matter the season.

    It seems like every week brings a new beauty product with a new promise, whether it's perfect skin, shiny hair or the chance to look 10 years younger. But more often than not, the latest must-have potions only deliver disappointment, not results. Fortunately, dermatologists are the voices of reason when it comes to shopping for skin care that actually works.

  • It's fall - the time of year when makeup palettes turn rich and hair makes a statement as our wardrobes transition into sumptuous layers.
