Freshen Up for Fall

Raise your hand if you're more than ready to transition into fall? That's totally a trick question because everyone is ready to bundle up with a pumpkin spice latte (or non-fat chai tea latte since coffee's not really our thing...) a cozy scarf and take in the fabulous season that is fall. While putting away your summer wardrobe, it's time to also start thinking about adjusting your beauty routine for the changing weather. Check out some of our favorite tips for freshening up our fall beauty routine!

Our one stop shop for all things affordable fall beauty is Meijer. Seriously, have you checked out their beauty department? Ahh-mazing. From affordable drugstore brands to high end skincare lines, they have everything you need to transition from summer to fall. Here's how we adjust our beauty routine for fall weather:

1 // Static Season is upon us, friends! To keep those locks silky and hydrated, switch up your shampoo and conditioner to something more moisturizing. One of our go-to brands is L'Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner. It's lightweight and contains just the right amount of oils to defend your glowing locks from static! Don't forget adding a Wet Brush to keep your hair tangle-free!

2 // Soothe dry skin with hydrating masks. We have a variety of favorites in our arsenal, but one that we are loving right now is the L'Oreal Paris Purify & Mattify Pure Clay Mask. This indulgent, hydrating mask provides a refreshing skincare experience and smells like the spa. Yes, please! To make the most of your mask, make sure you have a clean face to start with. We use Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water to ensure all of your makeup from the day is removed.

3 // Try out a bold lip! As the weather turns, it's the perfect time to pucker up that pout with fun lip colors that are more fall. For example, try out more reds, purples and burgundy colors that accent your wardrobe. The right lipstick can really accent your pearly whites, so make sure you're brushing your chompers with Colgate Optic White toothpaste. We've seen an instant change in our teeth since we've been using it!

When in doubt with how to switch up your beauty routine, snag a magazine at Meijer and be inspired with suggested products that will help you make the most of your fall beauty routine! We find the best way to switch everything up is to experiment to find the perfect mix of products. Also, let's not forgot the candy can't be considered fall without candy corn.

Before heading into your local Meijer, remember to download the MPerks app and check out the coupons available for your favorite products. There are so many great deals to take advantage of in the beauty department right now, so stock up and save.
