As we change our fall wardrobe, we can’t forget about our makeup stash! Transitioning your makeup from summer to fall should definitely be on your to-do list. So today, I am sharing how I make sure that my beauty stash is ready for the season!
First Up, Check Your Tools
Organizing for fall is a great time to make sure you have the proper tools. Do you have all the brushes you need? Are they dirty? How about your tweezers and eyelash curlers? Are they in good shape?
I admit that I haven’t always been the best at cleaning my brushes. However, I found some tools to help me keep them clean. I found this Shadow Switch Makeup Brush Cleaner this spring at TJ Maxx. I love this thing so much, and it helps me keep things nice and clean!
Make sure you go through your brushes and clean them. Throw out your tired and worn out ones. They won’t help you anyways! Then make sure you have a place to organize them and keep them at your disposal.
Next, Check Your Foundation and Concealer
Do you have foundation from summer still? Well, that’s great and all, but chances are that color is a little darker than you are now. Be sure to color swatch yourself for foundation and concealer so that you have the right color for your skin. If you need some more reasons why, please watch this video:

Throw Out Old Makeup
Seasonal transitions are a great time to throw out that old makeup. I found a nice handy guide on B Loved Boston to help you figure out if your makeup is past its prime. While I know it is tempting to hang onto something, it really isn’t good for you. It can cause skin irritations, break outs, and a whole list of issues. Be on the safe side and throw your old stuff away when it’s expired!
Go Through What’s Left
After doing all of this, go through what you have left and see if you have some deep, rich colors or neutral tones that are great for fall. Look through your fall wardrobe and see what eye shadows, lip colors, and nail products will look great with that new sweater you just bought!
…Then Buy What You Need
After you do all of that, head to your favorite store for beauty and get what you need. If you are thrifty like me, check out what deals stores are having. I always check my Ulta rewards before heading there for things like foundation, so I get the most bang for my buck!
And that’s my easy way for transitioning your makeup from summer to fall
Seriously easy, right? It takes a little bit of time, but you will have everything you need and look super cute when heading out to the pumpkin patch…or huddling in a blanket once the weather turns cold. Or is that just me?
