How to Transition Makeup from Summer to Fall

September is here, so it's officially time to embrace the seasonal transition and turn over a new leaf.

No need to overhaul your cosmetics case, we have the fall favorites to update your day and night look so you can become a Fall Barbie Doll.

Lip Service

Go Nude during the Day
Mute your summer pink lips by applying a nude lipstick base under a pink gloss. Start with Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor
(in Nearly There, $8 at, then gently blend with a soft pink for multidimensional color. Our fave summer shade was Korres Liquid Lipstick ($22 at because it is bright, vibrant and lasts long after we've finished our raspberry sorbet. Smack your pucker a few times to smooth the color and kiss fall lips hello.

Red Passionate Nights
Stand out with a shade of crimson that works with all skin types. Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick (in True Red, $9 at flatters all faces without going too bold. Start by making lips smooth by mixing granulated sugar and Vaseline ($3 at for a fast (and yummy) exfoliater. Then apply the color with a lip brush, spreading the color from the center out. Stay in the lines for a polished pucker.

All About the Eyes

Eye Popping Liners during the Day
Summer heat causes liner to smudge and run (often making your man want to run away), but now that the heat is breaking it's time to break out the colored liners. Apply SEPHORA
Long-Lasting Eye Liner (in Fancy Violet, $20 at to instantly amp up the drama with an electrifying pop of color for an instant line of style.

Black Cat at Night

This season the cat is out of the bag with thick, rich "cat eye" liner.  Using Nars Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner (in Via Veneto, $23 at, begin by drawing one continuous line from the inner eye, over the lash line and stop below the end of the brow. Begin a second line at the end of the lashes and meet the 1st end point. Finally, fill in the open space to finish the flirty, feline effect.
