Summer is supposedly slowing down and getting ready for the next season, but someone forgot to tell mother nature. This week, temperatues hit some of the hottest in months, stretching out these final dog days of summer right into fall. But that’s nothing new, especially for New Yorkers. Warmer air usually sticks around for a bit, becoming accompanied by changes to the daily routine. Everything from how we dress, to how we get ready in the morning, to what we wear on our backs, and especially, on our skin. But that doesn’t necessarily mean your entire medicine cabinet needs an overhaul. By simply removing a few things you won’t need for a bit (Aloe vera, sunless tanners, bronzing creams) , and adding in some skin-perfecting essentials you can map out a road to skin success for the fall season ahead. And Ulta beauty can help navigate the way.
I teamed up with People Style Watch and the mega makeup site to show how you can achieve flawless, fall skin in just a few simple steps.
First, rejuvunate your skin from the scorching summer heat with hydrating, and cleansing. The Peter Roth cucumber gel mask is a gentle cleanser that helps to soothe, calm, and detoxify skin, and can also be used under the eyes to reduce puffiness.
Begin with a lightweight foundation, BB, or CC cream for all over coverage. The Smashbox BB Water creme is one of my favorites. By using a breakthrough system that suspends pigments in water, the result is all day coverage that smoothes fine lines, protects, hydrates and takes you from AM to PM.
Finish with a cream highlighter applied to the apples of your cheeks using a ‘V’ shape pointed towards the nose and blend. My favorite is popular cult classic, High Beam by Benefit, but there are lots of choices, styles, and colors to choose from at Ulta.com.
By using these tools of the trade, you can create the perfect syllabus for flawless, glowing coverage every day! It’s at least one topic you’re sure to ace this back to school season. As we glide into fall, you may not always have a clear head. But you can definitley maintain clear, cashmere skin.
