There’s something about fall that feels new. Whether it’s the new school year, the crispness in the air, or the vibrant fall foliage, there’s just something about the season that announces that change is a-coming.
And with the upcoming sweater weather and that feeling of newness, there’s always the urge to switch up your look. Thankfully, there are plenty of amazing green and natural beauty products available today so that you can update your beauty routine and be kind to your skin. Here are 5 green fall beauty essentials:
A Jewel Toned Nail Polish
A deep, rich nail colour is great for when the leaves turned bright but you’re tired of your bright summer toenails. With those toenails about to hibernate in flats and boots, autumn’s the time to amp up the colour on your fingertips! Go for deep, rich colours from non-toxic brands such Pure Anada, Pacifica in Pool Party, or Moov Cosmetics Home Grown Canuck Collection in Deep Creek.
A Berry Lip
Somewhere between the bright pinks of summer and the deep reds of winter, a berry lip is always a must-have for autumn. And with the 90s lip trending this fall, the deeper into wine territory you can go, the better. For fair skin, choose a strawberry or raspberry colour such as Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Brimming Berry or Dr. Hauschka’s Lipstick in Amaryllis. For medium tones, try a deep merlot tone like Pure Anada’s Bordeaux Cherry or Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Juniper Water. And for deep complexions, a plum tone is most flattering.
Or if you’re looking for a more subtle hint of colour, there are some amazing natural lip glosses on the market. For fair skin, try Zorah Lip Gloss in the shade Lea. For medium complexions, give Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tint in Sugared Fig a whirl. And for deep tones, 100% Pure has a beautiful lip gloss in a shade called Plum Wine.
A favourite part of the days getting shorter is switching up fruity summer scents for more cozy ones that go well with everything pumpkin-spiced. Try Pacifica Solid Perfume in Persian Rose or Hugo Naturals Comforting Vanilla & Sweet Orange Essential Mist, or Scentuals Vanilla Body Mist.
Big brows are big for fall. But if yours are thin and you’re looking to fill yours in with a green and natural product, we’ve got you covered. Pure Anada makes a loose mineral brow colour you can apply with a thin, angled makeup brush like their own Duo Eye Brush. It comes in a variety of colours for dark or light brows. Or if you’d rather use a pencil, Zuzu makes a natural one that comes in shades called Mink and Russet.
A Body Scrub
Spent a few too many days lounging by the lake? Has the sand, sun and insects of the summer wrecked havoc on your skin? A luxurious body scrub can change all that just in time for fall. Try Indie Lee Coconut Citrus Scrub or Lovefresh Coffee Sugar Scrub. You’ll buff summer damage off in no time and be ready for the new season ahead!
